mud.man.rj Changed the starter on my wife's Caddy Northstar engine, under the intake, great place but not actually that bad to do, just like anything first time, go slow and think about the reverse steps.

get a leveler. best thing since sliced turkey. I'm a cheep arse, so I built my own from an old scissor jack screw and some scrap steel, but buy or build, you won't regret it.

Nice, finally getting loose ends tied up is a good feeling.

John long Took the wife shopping today. It is a shame how the daily requirements of life can interfear with your daily knap as well as shop time.

I did get the spot welds drilled out of the firewall supports and they are gone.

That's what I get for hitting the back key...

Double time would be good, I could pay for the frame straightening they did on the Malibu today...

I can't "edit" or delete it either...
