|12.20.11||John Stover||Looks like Middletown.|

evaporator being used as an oil cooler. That technique was popular back in
the 60's. I remember the cooling problems those iron boat anchor big blocks
had, especially at Reading when that heavy mud would block the airflow. With
alloy radiators and synthetic oil, temp is not the problem today it was back
Just a digression, I would bet my house that not one engine in those days saw a dyno. Today, even crate/claimer engines get a pull or two. I worked with a guy who did not own a timing light, set timing by ear. I "ragged" him about it so he said get your light. I did, we checked a few engines he had set up. He was within a degree of his goal on each one. Those days are gone.

To confirm this photo,yes this was taken at Middletown in 1969. Tas had some kind of falling out with Flemington & ran the first part of the season at Middletown. Al would take me into the pits with him when he signed in. Great times, Great memories !!
