Well, the last couple of years have been shitty to say the least. With the blower I fired a couple of pistons and blamed it on the blower heat and a lean mixture. This year at Bonneville it did the same thing without the blower. So the blower was exonerated. After a search it turned out to be the oil pump. It was pumping just enough to keep the big end alive but not throwing enough onto the cylinder wall to lube the piston. Problem discovered and solved.

I'm looking forward to Bonneville next year and to killing a couple of records. P.S. I love the poppy! Nice to remember.
