Thank you, Ken. I agree - Phil is one of the many truly skilled masters of the trade that we have in our area. Phil was actually featured in an issue of Octane in the Gearbox section, and has had some really nice articles written about him and the other craftsmen in his shop, and they all deserve recognition.

Cheers,

Greg

New Episode with Dave Vegher at his Shop

Our new episode was published this morning. Dave Vegher and I met at his shop to discuss, using a Lotus Twin Cam as an example, how he approaches a performance street build vs. a race engine build, and how to plan your engine build, either doing it yourself, or having it built by a professional. Lots of great information here from a master engine builder, so please head to our web site, and download the new episode there or from iTunes.

Cheers,

Greg Tatarian

Greg,
I've been listening each day into the office and you and Dave/co-hosts are doing a very good job! The content certainly fills a void for us historic car enthusiasts. Look forward to the next podcast

Hey, thank you very much, John! There are some amazing talents out there that deserve to share their stories.
I just recorded a wonderful conversation with Dan Marvin, master machinist and very skilled and serious racer for 40 years. That will be a two-part episode coming soon. Working on some more great interview subjects to be announced later.
Cheers,
Greg

Thanks for this recording Greg. It's the next best thing to being there. It was interesting that Dave has experienced valve train and camshaft problems due to the lower amounts of zinc and phosphorous in some oils, even though the changes in oil have been covered on this website in previous posts.

He mentioned that the 26R had a different oil pan. It sounds like it was more of a box shape, but I've never seen one. You don't know of a picture of one do you?

Thanks, Bob

Hi Bob,
Dave was not referring to recent problems due to low zinc and phosphorous, but when the problem first started to occur. I guess when you've been doing a particular job for 45 years, timelines get compressed during conversations :D .
I don't have a picture of a 26R oil pan, but will ask Dave if he has one, or I'll try to get some photos at the track next weekend.
Thanks Bob!
Greg

Hi Greg,

I meant to say that it shouldn't have been surprising to me that Dave experienced those oil related problems, because I have read about them. His knowledge about TC engines is way beyond mine.

Thanks for checking on a 26R sump picture! I'm sure I've never seen one.

Bob

2-Part Conversation with Dan Marvin - Coming Soon

Back from the CSRG David Love Memorial Vintage Races, and I had a great time. Lots of work my first time around as a safety technical inspector, as there were over 250 cars entered, I was told. One of those entrants was my guest for an upcoming 2-part conversation - Dan Marvin, master machinist and mechanic with Jon Norman Racing in Berkeley, California, and championship-winning race driver.

Dan spoke by phone with me from the shop just a few days before the races. I'll tell you more about Dan when I post the first episode.

I'm busy editing and mixing the first part, so please stay tuned for an outstanding conversation with a special talent and great guy, Dan Marvin.

Cheers,

Greg

Hi Bob,

There was one 26R at the track, but I was so busy I never had a chance to get under it for a photo, and I wasn't the tech inspector for that car. I'll look through my files again.

Cheers,

Greg

After uploading our latest episode, work took me out of town, so I didn't notice that the episode was truncated by almost half its length! Clark A. Lance has just notified me of the problem, so I've re-uploaded the complete episode. Please give it a listen for more fun with Dave and Ethan, and thank you, Clark!
