You are right about the seats and your thighs. I have large muscular thighs and by the end of the last last session last week, my left thigh where the bolster ends was very sore. I could tell a lot of force was being place on my thigh to keep me in place.
Gunnery flap and wickers removed. Getting there way earlier this week. Lowering tire pressure. Should get several more runs in this week and be able to find the sweet spot for LC RPM. Hopefully I’ll get in the 10’s.
I’m pulling my gunnery flap off for Friday night legal street racing this week and the wickers. I need one with less drag and good looks for the strip. Trying to get the base 100% stock car in the 10s. Then I would need another “better” one for the track.
Yes, the nut was free turning. 4 turns points the fitting in the desired direction and the jam is tightened and all it good. It's just the hose could clear the valve cover if the fitting sat just a tad higher. Maybe this aftermarket one is a hair shorter than the original? I doubt it but...
Anyone else notice the hose laying directly on the valve cover? I followed the instructions on the number of turns for the fitting (4). The only way I see the hose not touching is one less turn but the o-ring does not seat until 3.5 turns.
I was standing there when the dealership put Shell 93 into my car for the first tank. Nothing but Shell 93 thus far and plenty of WOT. Zero issues. Hopefully for you it is as simple as someone ran 89 in the car.
