#GilmoreGreatRace: Stage Four, Bowling Green to Franklin
Last night as I was writing our daily blog post in Bowling Green, Team #GilmoreGreatRace was outside with the Packard doing our nightly check up and maintenance routine. Shortly after posting, the team identified a problem with the car...one that would lead to a late night.
Nearly right on time, the Packard pulled around the corner and headed for the arch.
Jacob and Mike had a GREAT run, with some of their best checkpoint times under 15 seconds off! Big smiles at the finish line today, and even an autograph or two :)
But, the question on everyone's mind - did our fix hold?? The team's problem solving and perseverance paid off and the car ran through all four check points from Bowling Green to French Lick to Franklin and the fix held up! Looking good...
Until we were on the road to our hotel for the evening.
Sputtering and misfiring, low acceleration. We quickly pulled the car over and the team tried to trouble-shoot this NEW problem. After a few adjustments, it appears that the distributor is loose -- at the minimum. As I write this the team is currently down pouring over the car in hopes that tonight we can make another "quick fix" and be on the road by morning. Until then....
