This years Baja-1000 Race is November 8-11
I may "?" have a co-driver however that spot is still open at this
time..
I am seeking someone who has a bronco capable trailer and a suitable tow
vehicle to go from Portland- threw Calif. to Ensenada.. and back... I
will supply fuel..
total time 1 week..
I am also seeking possable pit support. This is essentually a 1 week
mexican vacation  with front row seats for the race.  Doug Schultz and
some friends of his came out and helped in "99 and you can check with
him how they liked it.
Lodging will be provided in Ensenada as a home-base for the week  (as
long as u don't mind sleeping bags and tires in the kitchen..)
You can goto   philmoulton.com for pics from the "99 race

btw.. I am also seeking sponsors

Subject: push rods


have a 302 that we did a full rebuild on 2.5 yrs ago.. We just pulled
the heads and are installing roller rockers.. I find that THREE of the
new push rods are severely bent.. one so bad its been rubbing on the
sides..
there is less then 3000 miles on the engine..
I am replacing all the push rods with a set i bid on ebay that was
"supposed" to be  4x hardened.. it appears that they are just "hardened"
and  are not chrome moly  4130 one piece rods.  they however are better
then "stock" pushrods
and are "black" in color not chrome like the old set was.
the engine is not built for high revs in the 10k range but in the
4000-5000 range.
the engine is not runing alcohol.
question #1.. should i stop and get the GOOD  $80. ish push rods or go
with the set i have..
question #2.. WHY do pushrods bend.
