Solder used for electronics is rosin core.
It would be better than plumbing solder which is acid core.
Rosin core will not affect any of the carb internals but acid would.

Coffee Shop / USLMRA at Charlotte Motor Speedway

Just saw news bit, showing USLMRA is having a sanctioned race on pavement at Charlotte Motor Speedway tonight.
They will be on the Legends and Bandolero track. Thought it was a bad idea to race on pavement.
Just thought I'de mention if anyone wanted to attend, gates open at 5:00.

In place of a gage put a pressure switch and an LED on the dash.
Just be careful of the color and you might need to dim the LED if it's too bright.
That way you won't have to look but if the LED going off hit the kill switch when it's safe.

Look at the far right part of the add. That little triangle is the AdChoices symbol.
 It is part of Google. The adds shown there are companies that have paid Google
 for this service. Nothing to do with you or your computer.

Coffee Shop / Computer Warning
« on: November 15, 2011, 05:11:44 am »
Computer got infected, do not know where or what site I went to.
It was a Trojan Virus, very nasty.
Within seconds my anti-virus was working to get rid of it.
Too late it was in the operating system. It was maskerading as an active-X file.
I was busy downloading something, saw the active-X banner, without thinking I clicked it.
That was it, the virus was in and within minutes I shut the computer down.
Took it a local shop, to have anti-virus run on my disk. The file system was corrupted,
the operating system was also.
Since this new version created little replicas of itself everywhere it goes, none of my files
or data can be used or copied. If they are the replicas will start to spread where ever
they go.
Please be very careful!!!

How do these things oil?
Do they oil up thru the cam shaft the down thru the main and counter shaft.
I'm at a loss.

If preachers would put it out that simple, the word would be easier on the ears
and service would be shorter.

Is it a truth that a case that has had a crank problem will more than likely have another?

Chassis / Re: front axle
« on: June 09, 2011, 11:07:32 am »
The front axles and axles from Grasscar are good, there is no dispute there.
Darren builds good stuff! Tha thing to conside is can you home build something
with all of the adjustment set up right and all the design right?
Just my two cents.

Reading posts here is like mining for valuable gems.
There really far and few, but when you find one
it makes it all well worth the time spent.
You may even get a chuckle along the way.
