First Drive w/ New Engine in 83 CGT
A few moments ago I took the '83 CGT for it's first run up and down the
street with the new engine I built. Still have a couple small odds and ends
to finish before I take it out on the highway for real. Hopefully that will
be next weekend. Car ran well above 2k RPM, but stumbles slightly when
below that. Idles a bit rough as well. Not sure how much of this is an
effect of the schrick cam but time will tell as I work out all the bugs.
Anyone else have a schrick in a solid lifter head?
Thanks to everyone on the list who has given me pointers. Especially Phil
for the knowledge I've anonymously absorbed from his insightful posts, Huw
for a great CGT website (I plan on adding some of my experiences to it once
I'm all done), and for Gil for stopping by and helping out & keeping me sane
with a few beers... Had I not had the list, I would never have built up
the courage (if you wanna call it that) to attempt such a project. And
special thanks to Dan for making the list possible.
Anyway, had to share the jubilation.
'85 CGT (parts)
'86 4kq (maybe soon)
