Got a GTG today and tomorrow. Should be around 60 guys with their saws. They come from Michigan to Mississippi. The saws will range from vintage to highly modified race saws. The race cants range from 8" to 17". It's also an unbelievable food fest. I may even acquire a couple more Homies while there.😉
Yep, that's the one. Ended the day breaking the belt on my 5-30N so I brought it home and did a pit stop belt replacement. Going to race the Super 2100 & 750 in the Vintage Over 70 cc Class Saturday. The outlook on winning isn't great because there are some Husky 2100's entered also.
Well, the Vintage 70cc and over class race was interesting.
My friend ran my 750 and I ran my Super 2100. He got beat in the first race.
In my first race, I raced a McCulloch 550. I had my 3 cuts done before he got started on his second cut. In the race frenzy I had forgotten to flip my compression release lever so I actually ran him with the compression release on. 😕 My second race was against a Husky 2100. It was a good race and I beat him by about 2 seconds. The final race, I ran against another Husky 2100 and he beat me by about 1 second.
After the races, I talked with a group of the performance saw guys. One guy said "You do know that both of those Huskies were ported saws." I had no idea. One of them actually had been machined with a removable head setup on it. They wanted to know more about this big old red saw that apparently impressed them.
The 750 might have shown better, but his first race was against the eventual winner.
