This article was written up in the December issue of
S&S Cycles Newsletter, "Performance Times". As you can
tell, Ray and I had a lot of fun running their Super B carbs. They
worked so well, I will be using them on all future runs. I first
saw Ray's coupe back in 1985 at the Fremont Raceway. Inliners were
having a grand get-together like we are having in Denver this year.
At the time the family car was a stock 216 powered '49 Chevy Fastback.
The coupe came rumbling by and it just looked and sounded so
unbelievably Cool, I fell in love with it. Not in a million years
would I have thought in a short 13 years Ray and I would be friends
and he would be letting me run my engine and work on it. Bonneville is
truly a place where dreams come true and Inliners come together.
The engine runs Jimmy rods and oil pump, Buick 181 pistons,
power-glide valves. At this run it still had the Schneider 270
hydraulic cam. Next year we plan a healthier cam and more fun!
