Who invented "Hillbilly TUNING" ? --Hagar did. when ? about 2001. Why the name ?
Well when I stumbled in here a friend in Tyler Texas ---jumped all over me and he
used foul language a few times ---he said for me to wake up this is not the days of regular oil
etc . Then he told me to take my Voodoo and Hillbilly stuf and stuff it . BRAVO a name
was coined. One that I really liked so I adopted it (without his permission) . BUT
make no mistake -- in this context it is anything but simple. BUT it works.
And the final procedure could not have come about without input from :
First in line Gary Bangs --then Loren --then Val Christian --then ---Doyt Echelberger ---
then --Chuck Carnohan -then -Mark Shepherd --then - Roger Brown ---then Scott Kair
-then --Gavrik Peterson ----- (I am getting demented ) -- so if you helped take no offence not seeing your name. ---WHY the names ? That is a good lead for NEWBIES --look for those
names in archives ---and you may learn something. ---WOW what massive experience
in one archive. ---I still look every bloody day. ----yes guys WHATCH OUT ---it is
addictive to play with Rabbits.
And look up James Hansen.----and Sandy Cameron and learn..
Why not just time according to Bentley ? ---WEAR and tear on pumps and injectors.
Testing the Pumps is part of Hillbilly TUNING 107 A Old Rabbits. Read my lips
I know that a lot of those Smoking Rabbits out there is due to dynamic timing not working.
I have done this to my 1980 PU and boy what a difference! Why didn't I
know about this years ago with my two other Rabbits?
I have nothing but praise for this forum --all around ---and by the way calling me names is OK.
As a final note ---? NO I never worked as a mechanic ----but I am 73 and I
have overhauled and troubleshooted ALL kinds of engines. BUT Diesels are
my passion right now.
PS : Remember to have fun FUN --hear you all ?.
