Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime

Maybe that action will change your luck this weekend.

Look like me and two of my kids will be at Ennis on Saturday. Will have to look you up between rounds.

Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime

I hope so Karl. I lost first round again in Oklahoma two weeks ago. This is the worst year I've had in a long time. I'm loaded to go to Ennis for the Fall Nationals. I may not even run till Friday but I'm going. I made a big change in the rear suspension again. Guess we'll see if that works. Hope to see you there.

Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime

Well I guess it's time for an update. I made it to the third round at the Fall Nationals. I was on the tree with a .005 light but was set up to slow and lost with a 10.97 to my Opponent's 10.902. I have been struggling with my 60ft numbers swinging around. I have another new set of shocks on the way. I was also having some goofy steering binding issues. That will be figured out soon. Hopefully I can get this thing sorted out and do some good next year. If I get my 60ft problem cured the truck will be a strong competitor. Also thanks Karl for dropping by. Too bad you saw a loosing run.lol

Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime

Maybe next yr will not be such a mess like this yr has been...
Back when we raced my buddy had a 64 nova that would lock up his steering when he left the line..didnt happen when he had less power, but when he upped the hp enough to lift the front it would lock it up..
We wound up putting limiting straps on the front suspension and that fixed his issues..

Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime

There are three u joints in the steering shaft it might be one of them. It also could be in the rack. My friend that built the front suspension also said to look in the steering column. He said when he worked at the Chevy dealership he found the bearings under the blinker assembly would go bad. Hey they're only 51years old!

Bearing on the top of mine went, had slop in it, replaced my column with a Ididit when I put in the IFS, also got a wiring harness adapter from them so it was all plug and play.

Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime

My column is cut off and welded to the strut bar. Hopefully it's something simple. It might be pita to work on the column.

Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime

those are some pretty hard angles in these 2 joints...do you know what the working angle is for the joints vs what your actual angle is?.....and I assume there is a shaft support behind the motor plate...

Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime

Enjoyed hanging out and catching up with you and Kenneth.

You mentioned the steering issue that day, but it did not register with me until the post above. the installed angle if the u-joints in the steering shaft exceeding the designed working angle could cause the issue you mentioned, but also the bearings in the column. I would look for any wear on the joints, as that would be a sign they are binding up...
