    More time...

    Hopefully the girdle will still be in one piece this fall/winter to receive the o-ring. :blast: We'll have to see who can set the HP record for a stock crank. This year there should be a few cranks getting the crap beat out of them with the new Limited Street class. :Brow:

    Steve, I know this is a dead issue right now but I just picked up a girdle and it needs cut. So add me to the list...

    I might be interested as well if the possibility arises again and the price is right.

    Hi people!

    I know I tried to do this once before, and I found out it was a momumental task to try to co-ordinate a minimum of ten girdles at one time. Not many people have them lying around, or off of their engines at the same time.
    If the interest is really there again, perhaps I can talk to Mike and let him co-ordinate the process.
    Let me know what you think.

    Thanks, Steve

    Ok, Im not the smartest feller, so let me see if I got this right? My girdle can sit on my shelf or I can send it to TA and it can sit on TA's until they get six on their shelf??? I know Im a real fart smeller... ooopps... smart feller...

    Thanks for getting this going again Nick. Also, it was nice talking to you this evening. I'll be in touch soon!

    I'll be sending my block girdle in IF Mike at AM&P can part with it at the moment. I don't really know where he is in the building process with my new engine. If it's already fit to my block and ready to go, then I'll pass. Mike's on a well deserved vacation at the moment, so I can't get an answer from him until he returns.

    Dropped my girdle off at TA this weekend. Mike said he will be doing a run soon, so get them in ASAP. Call TA @ 480-922-6807 and get an RGA (Returns Good Authorization) and send them in.

    Total first class operation. Saw Rods new block, It just didn't look right with 4-bolt main, but was sure sweet...

    Woodie is correct!!!

    Get your Block Girdles in NOW if you intend to have them done!!

    I just spoke with Mike and he's getting ready to do another batch of new girdles and will be able to groove our old ones after that.

    PLEASE.............. CALL MIKE FIRST, and get an RGA BEFORE sending in your girdle!!!

    If you intend to get this done, DON'T procrastinate!!

    The cost should be in the neighborhood of $85. Way less than it would cost me to do it myself !!

    Remember the first step... CALL TA and arrange shipping. This way they can keep track of each girdle and NOT mix them up!! :TU:

    Very narrow window of opportunity here. If you're going to send them in, do it NOW!

    Thanks, Steve
