TEX's Sessions for 2000
by David (Cowboy) Bralich

      The Technical sessions got off to a slow start. The Al Piemonte session only had two of us. However, the following sessions were a huge success. The clutch replacement on Larry Daniel’s Midget went very well. We started around 9:00 am. There was seven in attendance and every one had an opportunity to get in and help. We had both the engine and transmission back in by 2:30—and that was with a lunch break. A week later I went back and finished up the installation of engine stuff. The midget was started (first time since last fall) and is running strong.
      We had a great spring day for the Spring Tune-up Party with over 25 cars serviced. This was the year of the kingpin. There were three cars found with bad kingpins, including one owned by Terry Gaskin (our club librarian). This brings us to next month’s tech session, hosted by Terry. On May 20th in Romeoville there will be a front-end replacement party.
      Each month I intend to have at least one garage tech session. If you would like to host one (or more) please contact me and we can include it on our schedule. I will also be hosting a mini-tech session prior to each monthly meeting (7:00 to 7:30). In May we will be rebuilding a SU Fuel pump. I am looking for suggestions on this subject. If there is anything that you would like to see, please let me know.
      I will be posting all tech sessions on the club’s Web page “” as soon as they become known. If you do not have access to this and would like to be kept abreast of upcoming sessions, again, contact me. If there are not too many, I will personally contact you. If, on the other hand, this becomes a larger process, I will have to come up with a new technique—maybe a telephone tree.
