Tony Morris Carburetion out of Winter Garden FL, a former employee at BLP and the GET'M Garage also worked at Under Cover Race Cars to name a few. Builds great carbs, gas or alky. He built my 1250 methanol dominator on my Corvette.

A guy I did engines, trans & pitted with for a few seasons, likes work'n with Tony. Wherever Tony goes, he goes. Starting BLP. He won Div 2 S/Pro 2019 with a Tony Morris gas carb, I'm sure.

Wishing Mr. B a happy retirement. I use to love your Polara back in the day. You have undoubtedly contributed much to the sport and wish you the best. Sorry to see you hang it up.

Tony and I have been friends for years. He drove my car for three seasons. We talked about this carb on the way up to get my trailer.

On my S-10:

- Water pump
- Intake
- Headers
- Ignition box
- Wiring
- Fuel lines
- Axles
- Freshen trans
- U-joints
- Delay box

That's all I can think of right now. Other than an engine swap a few months ago, the truck hasn't been touched since I built it in 2013. I plan to hit the road and go to some bigger races next year, so it's time to give it some love and put some better parts on it.

Since the original topic was, what are you changing for the 2020/2021 season. Here is my short list of items for (hopefully) the 2021 season.

Xceldyne Elite Series belt drive
New valve springs
New front Hoosier tires
New Wilwood brakes, all four corners
Ceramic spindle bearings (A Christmas present from me to me)
New spherical plain bearings for the front end
New aluminum driveshaft
New 1350 universal joints
New Mark Williams billet slip joint.
New heim ends, everywhere
New MSD 7AL-3 (Red) ignition box
New trailer tires
New trailer brakes
New Motor home refrigerator
New Motor home AC

I need this pandemic "Lock-Down" crap to end before I go broke buying stuff for the race car, trailer and motor home.

Yes sir, been kicking it around for the last couple years. Just wanted to make sure I could do it without regret and I did.
Was good talking to you this past summer and best of luck to you and Kyle.

Getting a trans after NY, and then get it wrapped.


You have to put in the effort, to get anything out of it.

Pull the car cover off, put a new master cylinder in to try to fix the soft brake pedal "thing".
Only 47 runs on it after finishing it three weeks from end of season. 1 -1/4 final. one semi-final and a Box win. I am liking the new S10 !!

-Finish bodywork (almost there)
-Get car painted (looking for someone to do this)
-re-wire car and install MSD 7720 (already have 7730 paired with a digital 6)
-Upgrade nitrous
-Make new rear panels for interior
-Paint roll cage
-New carpet throughout
-New slicks (going from 28x10 to 30x9 I think, not sure what will fit under the new quarters so will have to see)
-New rear wheels (tired of the clearance issues I have now with my street lites)
-New belts
-Retire and probably sell open trailer and get enclosed trailer tagged and updated for 2021

I need to get started to get it all done.

Well my 2020/2021 is a rebuild of the 509. Last race 5.754,5.756 then 3rd 5.80 got lucky 4th rd 5.90 all out lost 4 mph. But hey it still runs and all the parts are still in the block. Pulled it out the the trailer today and its full of nice sparkly glitter... Frown

Now what to do fix it and leave it a 509? Or step it up a bit to a 565 or something.. Was an original Reher Morris motor that i bought use from Bruce Guertin who post here. 19 years old and still kicking...

Brian, My vote is to fix it, you obviously have been happy with it's performance for 2 decades.
