Another 720 Kicking Ass

Hey mike, Got the crank in. Couldnt believe how easy it fell in after we talked last. Five minutes with the flame really made the diff, not 3 or 4 but right on the money at 5. I went through two cranks but I learned my lesson... Dont wack the crank with a hammer......anyway, . I Put her back together, and she fired right up. I noticed a little base gasket leak because I used a shitty torque wrench that screwed me but anyway.... Time was not on my side. Had to get her to the dunes. did a little jetting in the garage. Wound up going higher than I thought with jetting but she ran good. Once I got a couple tanks through her I opened it up. I ran that whore hard. The rappy smoked most everything out. I was beat three times. These guys earned it though because they had five times as much in the motor as I did and they didnt beat me by much. The 720 rappy rocks. Got another head and want to send it out to complete the build. Those three wont beat me next time.
Thanks mike.........

good to hear man, once your cylinder head is done and you get the 39s, you'll ask yourself why you didn't do that sooner.
