Worked on diagnosing no fire on cylinder 2 on my pickup.

Header is cold, injector ohms out ok, power to the injector ok, tried another plug, and the wire seems ok using a timing lite.

UH-OH!

God how I wish my brother still lived in town so he could do that stuff for me. I know NOTHING about it and have to call him with him walking me thru that sort of thing every time.

Popping the valve cover to make sure I have lift on the valves is next.

Hopefully something simple like a stud backed out or....

The injectors on the truck were new in May last year. I've read if they ohm out OK, they could still be toast. I'm so not looking forward to doing it again.

this weekend

Well it was a nice weekend here and I spent most of Sat working at my real job this Sunday working in the yard getting the gardens and lawn ready for winter. I did research my transmission super t10, and figured its a 1977 which is stamped on the casting and the vin number says it also. I believe its out of a Pontiac and has a first gear of 2:64 or 2:43 . Now I am trying to figure what is my best ring and pinion ratio. I have a 72 nova gm 10 bolt , 8.5 ring gear and want to install a Eaton posi unit and new axles (moser). Not sure what to use but I am leaning toward 3:73 or 3:55's.
If anybody has any experience with this please let me know. The motor is a sbc about 400hp in a 2000lb car. thx sc

Camping fishing hunting

We spent the entire week last week Monday thru Sunday camping, fishing and hunting, with a bunch of friends from our church. No fish caught or deer shot, but we sure did not go hungry. Good times and lots of laughs around the campfire. Who says that being a Christian isn't any fun ?

Between my buddy dying and totally bumming me out and my car basically done I haven't had anything to post. The only thing is I have been teaching my son how to drive in the Rambler over at our highschool parking lot most every day, it's been a blast.
This was from our very first time and I had my work camera that was crap.

What did I work on today?

I worked on my wifes 1969 Jeep frame, Fabricated the vega steering box mount and welded the bracket to the frame. Turned out good.

I hadn't planned on giving it to him to drive but it hit me that I could, I love the kid and he may not be "car guy" but he sure wanted to drive the old Rambler, so there's still hope. I am hoping when I get into the truck out in the garage he will come around with all the welding and creating.

Those Vega boxes are good for just about anything aren't they!
