​There was no Dec meeting as such—a party for the club was held on 12/9 OVAHC Christmas Pub Party of ElevenThe small but enthusiastic group had a great time at The Pub in Rookwood Com-mons on Wednesday, December 9, 2020. The late lunch time was mostly good for traffic (if there is such a thing in Cincinnati) and our waitress Aleisha was fantastic. She decked all the halls and herself with Christmas cheer. Attending, we had the couples Ballinger, Wallace, Parrott, Ross, Campbell, and solo Skip Jackson. We did ask all to wear a PRETTY or pretty UGLY sweater, and the win-ners of the Little Switzerland Classic cups were.......................Lauren and John Wallace respectively. John's used to be pretty and classic (vintage 1980? but now it is considered over the top = ugly) and Lauren's was very pretty and unique in the fact that if she rubbed up on the tree, it was spark-ly silver, and if down shiny green. Or vice versa? You had to be there! President John Wallace thanked me for pursuing and persisting through the pandemic requirements, switching restaurants, times, etc. (applause) We started with a room for 50 folks and ended up with the KING'S table for 11.
Tech director Tim graciously took photos. The food was good and the wine >50% off our 3 bottles. Plus the hap-py hour for snacks and other drinks helped out. We all left happy and sassy! Hope to see more next year when things are hopefully nor-mal. Happy Hanukkah, Mer-ry Christmas, and happy New Year!Secretary Dale

​                                                                     Tim's Tech Teem 2020 Recap



 The OVAHC tech team had quite a few “outings” in 2020, in spite of the damn Covid quaran-tines. We did wear masks some of the time, as requested by those sensitive people. The year, before Covid started with work on the Brown clutch, the Wolfer brakes, the Fuson MGB, and brakes on the Ken & Rosalee Campbell Sprite. After Covid hit us, we still moved Abby Hangers’ 3000 to their new house and the Fuson car lift to the Chris Wolfer garage.
The rest of the year saw numerous outings at the Campbell garage for removal and rebuilding and reinstallation of their Sprite motor which had a ruined #4 cylinder bore from the dreaded pre-vious race shop rebuilder who botched the installation on one simple piston wrist pin cir-clip.Luckily the #4 bore was able to be resleeved and all the bores went to 0.030” over bore with new pistons and a lot of new other items.
John Wallace had a “simple” problem with one of his rear shock mounts which multiplied to a re-build of his rear springs and welding of axle housing brackets for the shock lever links. We also evaluated two of the Jerry Cox Sprite motors – one sweet 1098 in his car that runs great (leave it alone!) and one “spare” 1275 that was given to him and should be passed on to someone else to rebuild.

Altogether we had SIXTEEN or so tech sessions in 2020. The tech fund also purchased some tools, including an engine stand, which worked well on the Sprite rebuild. Next year we already have requests from Gary Rettig in Dayton to evaluate and plan future progress on his 3000; we will help John Parrott plan on his suspension assembly next steps; and we will likely pull the Scott Brown transmission again to replace the clutch throwout bearing.Regards - Tim Ross home phone 513-528-3232
