8 New sleeves and 8 new pistons.

Been running the used stuff that was in it when we traded for it. Now that we know it is going to live this should fix us up through next season. Wonderful feeling tight pistons. :)

Don't look like they have alot of compression. That's sweet! I learned compression is not your friend.

Same pistons as before. Seem to be working pretty well.

We will be in Choteau Marble Falls and Wheatland before SITC

Don't need much Patty. Have a hard enough time keeping it slowed down as it is. The cam is a baby also.

Hope it all works out great for you guys Ron. Keep up the good work.
Thanks Hass. Those old pistons were so loose lol the rings hung out so far it would wear a step in them. Amazing a couple of them lived after opening up the pinched ring grooves on the lathe.

Pretty sure the learning curves have been straightened out.

I could see Dillon start the engine from the out ramp. Blue smoke signal.
