Boss Hogs Fall Fest 2 day event (projects)

Tue Sep 20, 2011 4:20 am

Just wondering what the work line up is at the event this year.

I have a Zenith carb I'd like to go through, maybe place it on a engine to make sure things are okay.
I'm also bringing along a manifold to trace the threads with Dave's threader.

Have plans to haul a load of Cub Express goodies back heading west, they'll be dropped off at Bigdogs once I'm back home.
Trying to talk Gray Cub into this day run to Bosses place, he's well enough to handle a trip over the mountains okay.

I plan on bringing the '49..... I know Boss mentioned to me about doing a go through on mine (valve adjustment and such). I've got a new fuel line too, I'd like to "maybe" get the hood back on. Let me know anything to bring.

If I don't have use of a trailer, I may bring a couple of IH carbs to rebuild. Also, when I removed the hood this last time, I realized my exhaust manifold needs work. I think the muffler had been installed upside down and welded to the vertical pipe, which was all rusted and had wallowed out the manifold. Don't know if it can be repaired, but I may see if I can get the manifold off and get some help with that.

However, it sure would be nice to bring the WHOLE '52 and learn how to do a tuneup...valves, etc. The zenith carb was just rebuilt by Cecil at Cub Tug, and runs fine. Just think I could get better performance if I knew what i was doing!!

Boss, I'll bring along plenty of wire, brackets and fuel lines. Plus I'll have a dwell meter, timing light, battery booster, RPM guages and extras.
Looks like things a coming in line now, let me know if anything else is needed.
