but Ross Webster had his apart getting  ready for the NATS in MI.

I wish they would allow more old iron like my 25ss deflector. What rpms and top speed for heat racing on those 20H popper engines?

CBF B Classic Hydro rules include the 25SS but i have not seen one entered in years.
The NATS in MI ran a BCH class this year. Not sure of the rules. Could be local 'club' rules?

-amazing after 60+ years, how all these motors start, and come back,
under their own power, but then, maybe it takes 60 years to learn ?
Starting a 'popper' is always such drama !

Haliburton 20H 19.jpg

NB; the 10CE 'popper' wore a lime green top in July.
In AUG Jim Hunter switched to OEM  Merc bronze,
but that still did not solve the spark problem;
