Well the car won't be slammed but it will be a lot lower than it was. Were looking at 3/4 in the front and 1 3/4 to 2 in the rear. If I stick with coast there's no clearance, so it has to be changed out. There's no way around it.

Happy B-Day Leo!

Good news is you'll be able to sell the Coast for a few hundred bucks.

I got the CFM oil cap/breather and put it on today. Man I had a lot of oil all over the place coming out of the passenger side breather. I hope this finally solves everything.

That's interesting you have two filters on the left side, is that necessary? I don't know if it is or isn't just Curious George. Looks great btw!

Side note looks like T&A avitars are back in! (Except for a few gay guys)

Congrats on the breather. Even better if it solves the oil splatter problem

The other good news is that after changing my amps out and doing a little rewiring my car can now start after sitting for 5 days without being on a charger/tender.

NHRA Supernationals 1972

Haha look at Jed! I just got Don Purdhommes autograph at the NHRA Supernationals in 1972. I attended with the bro. I just bought a film scanner and tried it on these vintage negs. I didn't use the software features yet to remove scratches. Still trying to figure it out.






I still remember the Keith Black racing motor "The Elephant" it was bad azz! Can you believe that these were taken 38 years ago!

Leo's said his oil seepage is alot lower now with the oil breather installed.

Looking forward to your review of it.

I want to get one, but only if it drastically reduces the amount of gunk spillage.

Gary's running the breather setup just like Leo and myself.

Problem is that there's too much crankcase pressure resulting in spewage out from the passenger side breather. The oil filler cap breather is meant to provide additional ventilation, hopefully reducing the oil seepage.

I missed it, but I'm on board now.
