Lindsay, sorry to say but the pipes alone are way too loud. Its now the morning after running it and my ears are still ringing. I was really hoping to leave the pipes open, but there is no way your hearing can take it.

Problem, I will have to be at the end of the parade because even at idle I will drown out our huge 10 piece marching band.

Have you own 4 horn band.

There you go. I can tune each whistle to play song combined, get a monkey on a leash, a big barrel of fresh roasted peanuts, a busy street corner and get filthy rich. lol. Thanks John for the great idea. Watch for me on the stock market.

Super car, Tyrone.

The Fronty in our Speedster had straight 8" stacks when we got it, and it wasn't that bad on the hearing.. . Huh? Retarding the timing would make it very loud, with blue flames.

Neat that you picked up the Kant-Skore piston rings logo. That's kind of a bad name for a racer, however.

Ricks, thanks to you posting that picture, I went with Kant as a "sponcer". I like it from the very start. I wonder and if you know, was kant and Skore the name of two people and with that spelling? It almost has to be with what Kant-Skore would translate in todays term - can't score. I think that is what drew my to the name. It just stands out. So thank you very much for the idea. I should find an old race track and take some black and white photos.

"kant skore" the cylinder walls

But was "Kant" and "Skore" the names of two people who developed the Kant-Shore Piston Rings?
Like "Ford" - Henry Ford,

The Kant Skore piston was designed with an unusual expansion slot.

KantSkore-1

KantSkore-2

Phil, is it just the picture or does it have a longer skirt then most pistons of the time?

Good eye!

Yes, the Kant Skore piston is taller. Looks like 4 5/16" vs. 3 3/4" of the original iron pistons. (Yardstick accuracy)
