feel lucky your friends helped you, I help my friends all the time but when it comes time that I could use an extra set of hands all my "friends"
have thinks to do.
I know about those crazy days 3 weeks ago I pulled a motor out of my camaro,another motor out of my truck,took the camaro motor and put it in the truck,went over to my friends and pulled a motor out of his truck,then went over to another friends,and pulled the 302 out of his mustang and installed the 351w that was sitting in his garage.
that was one hell of a day I must have had at least 1 inch thick lair of grease on my fore arms
but thats what makes this so much fun. goin head to head with a chunk of iron that wont do what you want it to,drops grease in your eyes,and all around pisses you off but at the end of the day (or week depending on the project) it feels darn
good to conquer that big ol heavy beast
