I'm a bit confused on when and where you pickup your materials if you registration line
do you go to the fairgrounds on Thursday or register as you arrive on Friday?rolleyes

 You can also pick up your credentials on Friday or Saturday when you arrive, even if you registered on line. You don't have to pick them up Thursday afternoon. 

I received an email with credential  pickup instructions,  including to bring your proof of insurance for the car you registered.

From what I was to understand, earlier today it was an absolute bleep show trying to pick up credentials. Hopefully they have it fixed tomorrow as I didn’t have the time to stop by today to get mine.

 Don't count on it. The registration trailer is at the same gate as the preregistered and it's always a cluster.

Whatever they did to make the line/check-in faster worked like a charm. I took a drive up there over my lunch break and was in and out quickly. See everyone tomorrow!

I echo Tony’s sentiments. It was a great day yesterday. Good seeing/meeting everyone. Great cars! Stan, that Heavy clone is killer.

Got my car running, think i may have a weak/intermittent issue with the fuel pump
Did replace the Control Module and rotor, Spark is strong
Fuel line to a flask varies strong then a few week ones
anyone seen this before?

It could be the diaphragm is slightly ruptured, or a restriction in the supply line or the filter sock in the tank ?

Also, could be a leak in the line, allowing the pump to suck air. Don't recall, did you replace tank/sending unit, supply line ?

Replaced the sending unit this year so the filter sock is new. The Pump is a year old. The rubber hoses in the line were also replaced, the metal line is not new

One thing odd is the the cartridge gas filter has a little check valve and it seems like it was not opening. I removed it and it was good for a bit and started up and ran fine in the shop

Drove a round but is started to run a little weak, so I headed home. 

Think replacing the pump will be next

thanks for the suggestions

Any recommendation's on aftermarket pumps, Like Holley vs OEM style?

Sounds like either a restriction or an air leak before of the pump

If the fuel flow slows way down with no air you have a restriction.

You can then check for air by submerging a fuel line into the fuel in your flask, there should be no bubbles, if there are bubbles, then pull fuel from a separate fuel source close to the pump, if then no air pinch the hose, if air appears, the pump is bad. If there is air only when connected to the fuel line and tank, you have a leak between the tank and pump.
