Comm Van tuneup team
We had a couple of visitors this weekend. Steve and Ron stopped by with a cool ’32 hot rod. A longtime co-worker of Keith’s, Phill Halverson came by to say hello.
The team continued working on preparations for our upcoming test sessions. The comm van was given a tuneup with new spark plugs, fan belts, water hoses, batteries, and coolant. She is nearly ready to go. We also tested the Jerry Lamb magnetic brakes water cooling system; sitting dormant for nearly two years….it worked perfectly! Most of the team will be back next week and we’ll continue preparations.
