'the-body-god' Jeff doing his magic on a new clutch

Postby daytonajim » Wed Apr 30, 2014 3:54 pm

Note how clean the underside is - That's just the way Jeff keeps his cars.

Jeff is giving HRE #2000 the 'once-over' before I get the car.

Now clutch, pressure plate, face flywheel, clean, polish & detail.

Thanks pal. I can't wait to get the car. Jim

If you ever need paint or body work Jeff is the only guy I trust! Please call him for all your paint & polish needs.

Anoter new clutch - May 20, 20914

Postby daytonajim » Mon May 19, 2014 1:05 pm

There was an issue with the clutch that was just installed.

There was a problem with the disc. It chattered & only part of the disc was making contact.

HRE #2000 is @ Stillwater Motors now - Everything including the flywheel will be replaced with GMHP heavy duty parts.

I will be testing it out on the Power Tour.

That main street need to be autographed by your car. No black marks. :)

Jeff Gassen is on his way to Vengeance

Postby daytonajim » Sat Aug 16, 2014 1:57 pm

Aug. 16, 2014

Jeff is on his way to Atlanta to pick up HRE 2000 & take it to his shop in Stoughton, WI.

Vengeance had the car 2 months & didn't look at it so it's on the way back to Wisconsin.

2 months is just too long!

Thanks Jeff.
