two hose clamps , & some rubber isolators, like a shock resovoir mount deal, if just one clamp breaks...
some kind of e85 compatible materials can help, looks good other wise!!LOL When I took the picture Blake the guy working on it was gone. I called him and he said he went to get more hose clamps. Haha
So it has two hose clamps and safety wired. But we did not rubber mount as I am not sure what rubber would be E85 safe. But they are solid and wont move.
I don't understand why you continually try to reinvent the wheel. It is an expensive way to go racing...I think it is where you find the most satisfaction though.Now that I look at the pic its also missing the brace that goes across the bottom, which was added. So this was not complete. But gives the idea. I dont know why I post pictures. Haha
we also find out if our new fuel system will work. Haha
We are doing a variable PWM brushless fuel pump in the fuel cell. With no return or regulator. The fuel pump only runs as much as it needs to supply the right amount of fuel. So no added heat to the system or heavy load with pump running 100% duty.
It’s a proven system.
this is how all new GM direct injection engines are done. So we are not doing anything crazy. Should work better than mechanical regulator
I highly doubt we will have any issues. I actually think our new system will be an advantage over the systems used by other spec truck teams.
To be honest if we are not innovating we are not going to be competitive.
One thing, well a few with that new engine. Look at what all your learning with that engine as is one of your partners. Racing always brings out interesting things.Our only DNF’s came from the new LT1 engine and it was all on Turnkey. We have only had one DNF that was not part of the LT1 and that was Ss300 when we caught on fire from having our trans cooler hooked up backwards. LOL our filter was one way so no flow. That was a painful pill to swallow. Overall we have a good finish record. Just not good results. LOL
We no longer care about finishing. We are only focused on podium now. We are going to San Felipe believing we will win. (As long as Kyle has issues haha) This is the first race that has been our attitude. We are all in and if we end up a DNF it’s because we put it all on the line.
