 Bill, Gary, Stan,
I'll not be at the Jamboree. I had a partial engine failure last night on
the way out. Made it 100 miles and the engine was overheating. My cylinder
head temps were climbing up to 380F on the flat at 60mph. Saw 406f once for
a few seconds. Drove carefully home. Maybe next year.
Have a good time. Win that raffle bus!!
