Last week, I had to be in Boston, New Jersey, and DC, then home to Reedville on Thursday night. A 8 hr drive after a all day meeting. My brain was like scrambled eggs. Mfine? insert Bacon comment here. (_____________) Anyway. thanks yesterday for giving me the day off, and off I went.
We had a strange day, started out strange and got very nice, then strange again weatherwise. But that’s summer. We did get BUTTERCUP running like a champ thanks to two rebuilt carbs from VanNess Engineering.
That little sucker absolutely flies. Her KFL is amazing. Once it gets started, which is like threading a needle while on a bucking bronco. The system that kinda works. Start turning over a small bit. STOP, Pull out choke, start shove choke in fast. And then it feels like a old dragster. That cam and long throw is a rumble fest. And dang she lights up like a dragster as well. A wonderful sound.
We had two boats out just in case something else went sour. After all she had been in a barn for around 30 years. So that’s that. Put her back in the barn so we can now give her a paint job and interior. And my brain is now back to normal. What ever that is, and what is normal anyway in our world.
