Cool I hope weather permits also
I'm planning on going.
Me too. See you there Stan
The ten day weather forecast says high of 68, low of 58 with scattered thunderstorms. It's still early though . . . .
That’s my luck
Anyone going to Thiensville With fuelfed tomorrow?
As long as it isn’t raining at 6:30 am I’m going.
damn I wasn't really planning on it but I would like to. really slammed with stone work right now.
beyond busy couple of weeks
Good to hear business is strong. I'd imagine you're entering a busy period running up to the holidays. I'm not one to dissuade people from making hey while the sun is shining, but...it is vintage Ferrari driving season. That oh so glorious time of year when both the driver and the car can be at a comfortable temperature
If I decide not to go I'll post by 6:45. Planning on meeting up at the Lake Forest oasis. Email said there will be a group leaving at 7:15 Sharp.
yes cool. I saw that, im officially a fuelfed member now
Temperature doesn't bother me, thunderstorms on the other hand.... Let's hope the storms pass.
Finally rolling. See you there
have fun, I took my headliner apart yesterday not gonna make it
Something is wrong. Getting a lot of popping. Turning back
crap. check wires
Above 3500 rpm in 3rd, 4th, or 5th it sounds like a popcorn maker on the right side. I pulled over and checked the plug wires, but no change. Same thing happens if I coast down in gear. Any thoughts?
I have to think it is a loose wire, but they all seemed fine. I’ll head out to the garage after I eat and shake off my funk. Totally bummed right now.
stock ignition with points? check caps?
Stock ingnition with caps. Distributors were gone through last year when I had Ken Kales tune it. I still think it had to be something with the wires.
check cap and rotors anyways, plug extenders arcing?
im just rattling off ignition parts have no idea what type of engine is in the queen mother!! coils? LOL
I thought about arcing when I was checking the wires by the side of the road with the car running. Didn’t get shocked, but that could have been dumb luck. Still trying to get my head together to go in the garage. I should be drinking coffee and swapping car stories in Wisconsin right now. My son’s tuba lesson isn’t helping lift my spirits. Think Berlioz.
jp what happened?
