Well welcome back in to the fold Kim. I wondered where she was when I stopped by Rog's place today. Glad she is back on the road and I'm looking forward to seeing her at the track on Saturday.



Oh, and to give an example of Rog's desire to keep these things on the road and always willing to lend a helping had. I stopped by today to tear up the mounting hardware off a burnt '87, after an hour or so, Rog had my passenger door off, putting in a new window motor so my better 1/2 could have some fresh air.

This man should never have to buy his own beer.

Hey Roger, how much did the conversion add to overall costs?
I'm geting ready for a TB/WP and considering your conversion.
Looking through the TB cover observation holes, I have the same condition with passenger side cam belt riding on the edge compared to driver side.
Thanks

Sean,

It's great having RSKY BIZ back and FRISKY as ever!

Don't know if it's just me, but if Rog took the dang door off yout car, to give your 'better half' some 'fresh air' . . .
you might consider letting her out a bit more.

There might not be too many of those 'hood shot' foto shoot opportunities, otherwise, my friend. . .

Michael,
The additional cost is about $200 of which nearly $160 is in the new roller arm.
The other GOTCHA is the WP as I found that you could not use an early core as a replacment on the later style pump. So that could add another $100 to the price.
Worst case $300. Best case if you could get a WP core and a used roller arm it could be $100 or less.
Roger

Default RSKY BIZ IS BACK IN ACTION!

Hey Roger,

I took her out for a drive to the MS Ranch Sunday to meet up with some folks doing the PCA DE. . . Had a blast of a drive! Especially since they've added the 'esses' on I-30 in Arlington! The place got a lot closer -- driving RSKY BIZ...

The two of us -- just 'purring along'. . . ok

'All she wants to do is 'fly'. . . no warning lights... just fuel & fun!

Now that's my kind of post TYSON's SPA attitude!

All of your diligent attention to the timing belt situation seems to have been a success!

Will drive by for a 2K re-check....

Many Thanks!

Kim,
Glad she is behaving her self.
Now you need an X pipe to really liven things up:>)
