Why... uhhh... did you paint your exhaust manifolds blue?
That's the only blue in flame proof header paint. I actually wanted to do something totally different but my wife is anxious so I'm doing quick.

I wonder how far that could fling a 3.0

According to the Internet, expected range on a 90-100 kg stone is 300m.

The 3.0 Vulcan is approximately 160 kg, depending on year and configuration.

I'd expect no less than 200m.

BUILD THE TREBUCHET. Not sure if its for pumpkins or people though.... Seems to not like anyone who blasts a 2.9. That list has to be pretty long by now. I would really like to a flying engine just to see how much breaks off on the landing.

Wow. Sounds like a circus act. No, actually the name of my next band. "THE FLYING VULCANS"

Well. It's settled. I found my life's work.

Parts truck that came in has a 4.0 in it. I am actually setting it off to the side to use as a trebuchet counterweight

:giggle::giggle: Well as of Sunday night it's up and running. I drove it yesterday and today about 200 miles total. So far no drips, runs, or errors. Runs a lot smoother now also.

Thanks to everyone on this board that had an opinion. I appreciate the help and support. :giggle::giggle:
