Since the ride was canceled this weekend do we want to get this tank burned off? Do we need to stand around it drinking some beers to make sure it is depleted safely? :)
She's begging for attention. Who's up for coming by tomorrow-ish to get it on the trailer? That's helpful step.

Also, I'll be wrangling some new bushings into the 80 with Rory's help around noon. Feel free to bring beers and play armchair foreman.

PS. LLKs are at HPO. Could get some wheeling in with them in the afternoon or Sunday. Who's game?

We’ve got pinewood derby at 1000 tomorrow but might be able to swing by after

A little progress today, had to leave before we finished so we’ll see how far we got later.

Got the regulator and all the other plugs and gauges out. Filled the tank with water to displace what was left of the gas...

Cut up an old 80 series axle housing for the stack....

So based on our tank and discussion the above reflect the *recommended* numbers we should be using for our various components.

The 2.5in axle diameter would require a length of 7.8ft to fall into this guys ideal range.
