I did buy three pints of Lucas on my last summit order.

So, if I pop the head, what should I torque it back to?
I have been thinking of replacing the bolts with stainless anyhow.

150 in lbs. You will also want to make sure you reseal the head gasket. I use ultra copper rtv on mine but others use various other sealants.

That is assuming it has a copper head gasket and not a factory style one.

Looks like I need a new torque wrench, always wanted one for in lb.
Looks like a metal gasket, I may just swap out the bolts with stainless one at a time.

I stopped by the bulk fuel place where I have my company account and the gal kind of laughed
at me when I asked about alcohol fuel. Will VP or some one ship it? Lets just say my location is remote.

Check around, alcohol is a pretty common race fuel. Might also check your local race track, most tracks in our area carry it. As for shipping, not really sure. I would think you would be better off trying a fuel supplier and see if they can get it ordered in on a shipment.

I wouldn't advise doing one bolt at a time and assuming it would seal up the same. Besides, you wanted to know the bore and stroke.

Still working at getting the clutch back together. Can someone explain the ramps and weights in the primary to me? Right now the ramps are 15-28-22 but they are damaged. In the care package there are ramps that are not marked and are not as steep, maybe 1/8th inch shorter at the top. Purple spring in the primary. What will the shorter ramp do. Also the helix in the driven, currently the helix is labeled 42 with a yellow spring, I have an extra helix that has shorter/steeper ramps, what will that do. The large chain sprocket is an 84 and I have an 82 and an 86, larger number is taller gear?

I want to start out with this car in the 30~40 MPH range for my new driver, not sure what ET that would correspond to...
