I sat in front of the TV and watched the Ducks whip up on the Beavers in the Civil War game.

I got the door all back together on the Rambler, works well though that check strap door holder opener is a PEE POOR design I'll tell you that. If the car is at a slight lean that door just won't stay open.

Anyway, my next project was more important than any car, my granddaughters Christmas present. I am restoring an old play kitchen piece that was in my younger kids (both of them) Kindergarden room at the school. My wife got a very cool little table from her mom's house (in background) to put with it and we are going to make a whole kitchen with toy food and all.

3:00 Next to a jug of coolant for scale comparison.



4.00 Paint scraped off with razor blades.



5:00 sanded

Trying to finish up a four wheeler engine. 2005 Honda TRX450R.. Paying job.. Had a huffed rod/crank.

Tedium. Patience.

Interesting crankcase vent. A reed valve setup. The engine and trans have separate oils which is good but rare in the 4 stroke ATV/Cycle world until the past few years.

The crank is a three piece design. Rod bearing is roller. Rod has no cap. Exactly like a 2 stroke but 4 stroke.

Didn't really work on my car much directly. Read about shop presses and stuff on homemade tools until the wee hours of the morning. Slept in. Helped put up Christmas decorations. Set up the tree. Did some shopping. A local store has the big sasquatch sticks two for a dollar. And I found a Craftsman "5hp" 25 gallon tank compressor for 129 at a local pawn shop so i put it on layaway. I know it is not a true 5 hp, but it is better than the compressor I have since I don't have one. I think it said it did draw 15 amps. Also said it did 7 cfm at 90psi. Don't really know, but like I said it will be an improvement.

Yesterday all I did was knock one exhaust hanger off of the old exhaust pipe so I can reuse it. Well I did also locate a hole in the frame I can use for the rearmost hanger. Three hangers should be enough for it since I am going to exit it right in front of the rear tire. One up near the collector, one sort of in the middle, and one just to the rear of the muffler and ahead of the turndown. Got it figured out, but going to wait on welding it together until my new auto darkening helmet comes in. I'll probably have 3 clamps in the system. One at the front because that is how the front hanger is set up and I don't want to weld under the car. The other 2 will be be on either side of the muffler. After I get all that done I want to work on the brakes, replace all the soft lines, check/rebuild all the wheel cylinders and replace the shoes. Then I can drop it off the jackstands and pull it out into the driveway and organize the garage. Plus I would rather have it outside to flush the radiator and maybe take a look at the smoke situation. So my next month or so is full just on the caddy. Also have to get that shop press made so I can replace the wheel bearings in my daily driver.
