His last dragster.Tragically, drag racing lost one hell of an innovative, creative mind there on the guardrails at Pomona in '71

That's a great first picture Beppie! Pete mounted a degree wheel to each cam and ran the Cammer up the rev range to check the camshaft retard from one bank to the other that was caused by the long timing chain. Some tried cams that were ground with different advance but Pete developed his own gear drive to control the cam timing which was a much better method. Look at other photos in the thread and you can see his front cover for the gear drive compared to the Ford cover. Another great, innovative mind gone too soon.
I know the basement floor is down there because it's holding everything up. I just can't see it anymore.
