    UPDATE-2019 West Coast 348-409 Reunion **CANCELLED**

    Well guys it looks as if I will not be attending also. That is just too far for me to travel when there will only be 3 of us there. Paul & Pat I apologize, I really wanted to go there & race. Paul I understand you cancelling for next year, frustrating when we don't get many participants. I...

    UPDATE-2019 West Coast 348-409 Reunion **CANCELLED**

    WOW, that's depressing, I was hoping for a good turnout. Don't know why we can't seem to get anyone to participate. Guess it must be the distance. I thought there were more 409 racers within travel distance but I guess not. Will Johnny R. be there? I will have to give this some serious...

    UPDATE-2019 West Coast 348-409 Reunion **CANCELLED**

    Latest update: Engine is being put back together, there were some problems with the heads, repaired now. Should be together & in car next week(hopefully). So I won't get to test it before I take off for the shootout. Paul: do you have a head count? Will any of the Woodburn group be there...

    UPDATE-2019 West Coast 348-409 Reunion **CANCELLED**

    I am still planning on attending. However a few things must happen first. Engine is still out of the car. All parts are here and ready to be assembled. Hopefully will be completed in time & maybe even get a test run at Sage raceway next weekend. But I think that is wishful thinking. If I get...

    UPDATE-2019 West Coast 348-409 Reunion **CANCELLED**

    I sure hope so. I believe that I had that problem from the start of this season and Woodburn was the event that brought it to a head. Good thing I quit when I did. Hopefully will be all repaired & back together before the shootout. See you then. Joel

    UPDATE-2019 West Coast 348-409 Reunion **CANCELLED**

    It wasn't really the stud that failed. The timing gear bolts came lose , cam/gear stud broke off & everything just went crazy after that.

    Don is 99% correct. The locator pin was broken off. Will try to post some pictures later.

    UPDATE-2019 West Coast 348-409 Reunion **CANCELLED**

    Don't know if you guys are aware or not but had some engine problems again. Got the car home & took out the engine & took it apart (long story). Found out what the problem was & in the process of fixing it. Hopefully will be back together & running in the near future. I am still planning on...

    Discovered the problem with the engine. Should be repaired within the next month & hopefully I will attend the West Coast Shootout. You all have a great time. Take care. Joel

    We got the engine out today, intake & heads off. When we drained the oil we found what looks like the timing gear pin stuck to the magnetic drain plug. Also there is an indentation from the exhaust valves on every piston, with # 5 being the worst. That was the cylinder that had 0 compression...

    You all have a great time. I have to cancel, looks like another bad day at Woodburn (last year I blew up the engine). While I was there at the Oldies weekend the car was having problems staying running so we advanced the timing to get the car to run. Too much I believe. Made a few runs &...

    I'm petty sure they are. I will check next week when the guy working on it returns. It seems to be an intermittent problem & runs good sometimes & not other. Since we put this new motor back in there has been problems, its not the build I'm sure it is good. There is just a gremlin that we...

    Thanks. Yes & no. The car is running but not very good or consistent. I have been out 3 time & always having problems. I believe we got the carb problem solved, distributor taken care of & think the problem is the MSD 6AL2 box & timing. So we are going to replace the box(for a second time...
