   " The Gen is not outputting enough to charge the battery unless I am at higher RPMS...so I think the answer is a smaller diameter pulley."

I think the answer is to keep her above 5,000 RPM's!!!  ;-)

I have been in contact with Ed B. again.  He is moving our space a little to the east from last year.  We will be between building T, Y and pavilion A & B where Bruce Meyers gave the talks last year.  I will be there 1st thing Friday morning, so look for the tent with the manx Club banner.  If John shows up with the DBA banner, that will go up also.  See you there!  Tom

Well got the porsche engine fired up today (finally)
Didn't drive it yet though (still gotta put the seats back in !)
I'll be there albeit not as finished as I had hoped for

Glad to hear you are going to make it.  The weather will be great, or somewhat crappy depending on which weather report you belive.  Tom

All,

God willing, the 230,000 mile Chevy S-10 will pull the monocoque 10 hours to Carlisle. I am heading out tomorrow  around 9 AM. See you all there!

I will be there with the Utility on Sat morning, I'm not going to bring my display due to last years theft, but say la vee. Anyhow it currently isn't running and I have alot of spit and polish to do, 80% of this car is as it was built in 1976, kind of a rat but, that adds to its charm I suppose. I don't think John is coming, so I will be the Archives rep Sat - I don't have a banner so just look for me there and say Hi !
Bart
