    Hp total for today..... Zero, zilch, noda, nothing, squat, nill, etc etc etc....
    Broken lash cup in #3 exhaust shaft rocker equals dead in the water waiting on lash adjusters. The rocker isn't damaged just broke the pushrod cup. Just warming the car up and it started ticking. No metal went in the motor and it's not a big deal to fix, just a little disappointing. Sorry to let everyone down. This is the unfortunate part of racing and the reality with some of these things.

    Ha
    Harland sharp, uses a 7/16 lash cap instead on the 3/8 like jesel. I have spare jesel stuff but no one stocks 7/16 lash adjusters. I just have to wait a day or two. They are sending me spare adjusters and rockers out at no cost.

    Now I'm double sad... Lol
    Consider it done! Lol
    That wasn't exactly what came out of my mouth when it happened... I've calmed down quite a bit over the last few hours. I'm just glad there is no one to blame for this. Just one of those things....

    My guess is that if it was a Jesel piece, it would not have done that in the first place. Expecting 1500 HP and your using Harland Sharp?
