    This goes back to the early to mid 2000's and I only remember certain details.

    I was looking in a crate yesterday and came across a crank scraper for the SHO engine. I remember loaning someone an engine core to make them. He returned the engine and gave me the scraper set w/ bolts he made. I recall he said he made a few sets. Did any old timers or younger members ever used one or remember him posting anything on the old site? Thanks Mike

    Good memory and thanks for the link. I'll let you know I haven't used by now I'll probably never will. Mike

    They had a "guess the number I'm thinking" contest and I won a scraper from them. I think I wound up giving it to the guy that was doing the LSR stuff in Nevada. Ernie, I think? That's been a long time ago.

    Think how much lower the Orange Pumkin lap times would have been if you had installed it ;-)

    I think it was Ernie Groce who had an unusual 89 SHO (maybe Weber Carbs) who made a valiant effort on the Land Speed Record in the 3 Liter class.
