    Took it for a drive today just to get it out and it seemed to get hot enough to kick the fan on but by the gauge it was still a little cool. Ran fine and had normal power. But it did something different than usual when I shut it off. I normally have to stall it to keep it from dieseling today it just shut off like its supposed to.

    Finally got around to swapping out the vacuum advance valve so far it seems to have helped. I can run it up to 3-4k rpm and not lean out and feels like it has more power. I still might change a few jets in the carb to help with around 4500 rpm it gets lean.

    Finally got around to the water pump as well. Old pump seemed ok. I tried to get the impeller to spin on the shaft but it wouldn't budge but I went ahead and installed the new one. Took it slow out a back road it never got excessively hot. So fingers crossed it will stay cool now.

    Cheapo hood scoops are cool right? Either way the deed is done holes and all.

    I was thinking about doing something similar but having it reversed so it acts like a vent rather than a scoop over the exhaust side of the engine to reduce heat soak. The problem is the lack of spare parts for Gen 1's. Chopping up a decent hood is blasphemy...
