The Way to Hot Rod Power Tour 2017

On the road to the Hot Rod Power Tour 2017
Photo's were taken by my brother and sister-in-law. I only came out to talk to techs from Competition Cams and other performance parts providers. I was hoping that they would offer discounts, but no such luck. 


At Newton, Iowa Speedway

Perfect gaps. 

That's right 1000HP

If you're not a fan of large crowds this will not be the event for you. 

This was only the beginning. 

This 1968 Dodge Charger General Mayhem from Roadkill was featured. Yes, that's right, David Freiburger's ride. I did not see David there though. I also didn't stay that long, because I was aggravated that my care was not running properly to participate.

Night Test Drive Fail

Night Test Drive Fail.

When it rains it pours.
On the test drive I heard a ka pow. Rushed it home and popped the hood missing belt. alternator pulley was sizzling.

Noticed the pulley was missing on the power steering.

Oh look there it is and too hot to handle.

Ruined polished power steering pulley.

Went looking for the belt. At least that made it home. Not that I can reuse or anything, but I do need the numbers off of it since it's a custom size.

After things cooled found that the power steering pump bearing were dragging and going out.
