Thinking of the next project
« on: May 16, 2018, 06:24:44 PM »
With any luck we have a few pieces of old machinery going down the road over the next few weeks.  Coupled with that annual coming out of the jet skis we should be freeing up quite a bit of valuable space in the machine shed.  This will give us access to some sleds that have been otherwise landlocked.  I am thinking that perhaps the next project to tackle is the 303 Panther.  It may be 20 years or more since this sled has run.  Should be interesting.

I also have one of the 303's that I have never heard run.  They are a cool motor and the little old lady I got it from said it was very reliable.

So, would you be interested in a little friendly race to see who can get their 303 running first?

Too many things going on here this summer to monkey with the 303.  Interceptor suspension is still at the top of the sled to do list.  Guess I should give it a squirt of gas to see if it will fire??

If she fires on a squirt of fuel, you will win.
