A few pics from Russ. While the tripple is being worked on by other people, Russ is hard at work making the Sorcerer look presentable.
Sorcerer front end clean up night...doesn't look like much...but a few hrs right there....if it wasn't oxidized it was pitted. saving the hardware where i can...lot of wire wheel work. Now I just need to find some easy garage method of applying the original black oxide coating to those bolts. From pitted to mirror is no easy task either..as many of you know.
That wheel and rotor setup is Stock Sorcerer although there are quite a few GL parts in the mix
Restored gauge cluster, Sorcerer. Thanks to Retired Navy Captain , John Clifton...my friend and crew on my Pro Streeter....he has cleaned up a bunch of parts...all top shelf.
Now...anyone recognize this rear master? I have to rebuild or buy...totally frozen. I have cleaned up the ancillary stuff but this thing is nasty.
Remember those who gave all! So we could tinker at will.
It might be worth upgrading on some parts like brakes.
That master cylinder looks a lot like an older Performance Machine unit.
Thank's Billy, that ties in with what another person said and PM are just up the road from young Russ.
I tried to send RC Jr. a note regarding this however; I'm not completely sure the private message function worked?
Anyway, I worked for Russ Sr. back in 80's and 90's and still have a note book that contains tune-up / set-up information for the Double (Sorcerer).
The details inclued Mag, Nitro % Main Jet size, Hat size, Port nozzle sizes, metering valve etc etc.....
Russ had thrown it out with a bunch of other old drag bike stuff, I thought it was a piece of history so I kept it!
It's been in my tool box at home for the last 25ish years...
Let me know if I can help you guys out with it!!!
Tune-up and Set-up info???? SCORE!!!!!!
Kenny...hold onto that book. I have the "Red Book" and thought that was it. A little light...so you have the info we will need.
Hope you are doing well, Dad mentions you often. Funny we are both in ASpace bus. But have dbikes in our living rooms. It's anRC thing...working with rockets of all manner.
Nice of you to drop in Mr Collins.
There's a pic of Russ on the A,T&SF in the latest National Dragster from the 1975 Summernationals.
