We took the MK10 Falconer out to the last vintage race in Albuquerque, NM on April 27th. Won the class, well I was the only finisher, but I scored a WIN! Anyway the engine was running very lean, and the brakes were there but not awe inspiring. So I kept the laps down and came home to work on the car.
Replaced all the master cylinders with new. I had rebuilt the old ones and I swear I have not had that bad of luck before. Rebuilt the carb and rejetted. Moved the shoulder belts mounting point so as to fit the HANs device properly. Built a new dash as the original dash has the gauges down and behind the steering wheel and I wasn’t comfortable with that. So made a paper etmplate and then a new Al panel with the gauges higher up above my hands. The Falconer body allows this configuration but the MK8 will not so I guess I had better get used to the original configuration.
Car is down and loaded into the trailer. Racing in Pueblo, Colorado with Rocky Mountain Vintage Racing: http://www.rmvr.org, http://www.pueblomotorsportspark.us, this weekend Looking forward to seeing other Elden’s and more Formula Fords. Can’t wait.
