The Dark Side

The new Truck is now all painted and ready for the stickers. If you would like to see the Teams first pulls , be at Kirkbride this weekend

Simply Red

Simply Red has been rebuilt again after finding a water problem after the first fire-up. Now ready with new diff gears & new gears in the gearbox, to give a better ratio this year, John has fingers crossed for the weekend. The team are hoping that the new datalogger fitted will give them vital information to help them get the tractor dialled in more quickly. A re-panelled hood and new stickers, Simply Red looks great for the first outing of 2009.

Red Mist

Red Mist has undergone major work over the winter and is now ready for Kirkbride this weekend. With a crank grind and new shells fitted, Alistair had help from Chris Wilkinson to fit a new pump drive & timing cover that was found to be worn out. With a successful boost test in the field last Sunday, the Red Mist Team are hoping for better results this year.

Simply Red Winter Rebuild

Well, Simply Red was up and running on Saturday, running like a gud un, with all the new bits fitted, and the new data logger up and running. John went to drop the oil last night, and found water in sump once again, and that's after a new block!! Engine now stripped again suspecting a cracked liner, so taken it round to engineers shop and he has just confirmed a hairline crack. Luckily John has a couple in stock, and will get one honed out today. So it looks like this season is going to start like the last one finished, busy nights.Well it will stop John getting bored.
