By the way, I put my John Lennon "Imagine" album on the turn table in the garage while working out there tonight. I have to say, Imagine is the only good song on the LP.

I agree - I switched the injectors between a couple of holes and moved the dead cylinder! Number 3 had been SO dead that my temp gun showed temps close to ambient after 10 min run, while numbers 1 & 2 were WAY up there. Switched # 1 & 3 and now #1 is "cold" while 3 is nearly as hot as # 2!

I'm really hoping that the black oil that it is spitting out in fairly large drops may be fuel darkened with soot from the exhaust, and not engine lube oil after all!

We'll see. I'll pull all 3 injectors and get 'em cleaned and serviced (and rebuilt if needed!) and try again to get some (miniscule amount of) power outta this teeny lil puppy! The little feller is less than one liter total and supposed to be 22 hp at 3600, so we'll see.

I don't own a thing by Union Station. I think my wife has an Alison Krauss with Union station CD but I don't. I know when I hear it I love it, but I have never gotten into it, I'll have to give it a try on one of my hikes that's where I really listen to music, out on the garage it's just back ground noise.

And if you want my honest opinion, I liked Alison more with a little weight on.

I believe there is a law against it. I know our HOM forbade it. We tried it once but the toe tappen' caused to much ruckus that a separate noise ordnance was written against it. The toe tappen' stimulated to many individuals digestive systems combined with all the Tofu and Lattes' we consume. Massive expulsion of flatulence occurred and the CAB got involved. Our air quality was compromised. Nope no Union Station in California. But we do have a lot of Peter, Paul and Mary.

Allison has a beautiful voice but sings a lot of melancholy songs. Most of Union Station's are really upbeat. I like her a lot more when she sings with them than when she performs alone.

Question.... I put 3 wet coats of epoxy on my doors with a flash time of about 1 1/2 hours between coats. The shop is cool at about 60 degrees. Do I dare mud them today with the high build of epoxy and cool shop?

60 is pretty low, 55-60 is the absolute bare bones minimum for curing and I would warm them up if I were you. The best one to ask would be Barry, it's his stuff you are using. But I would think about running 180-120 paper over it to open it up and get some heat on it for a number of hours before I sandwiched it in filler.

One of these lights doesn't cost a whole lot and they are awesome to have. I don't have a lot of room and keep the stands out back while the heater units hangs up on the wall out of the way.

Not sure yet, but it may be sold. He said another guy is coming over to see it today, and if that guy wont pay his $375 price, then I have dibs on it. But I wasn't really keen on paying that much either. I may be forced to pay it if there's two of us that both want it!

That was not the answer I wanted but exactly what I expected. I will do that right now and turn the heat back on for a wile. Everyone says Barry will answer his phone on the weekend but I am NOT going to interrupt his weekend. He deserves his time off just like the rest of us.

I agree he deserves a day off too...I've called him on the weekends in an emergency and appoligized for doing so but he always says thats what hes here for,he wont mind but If it were me I 'd say dont rush it and to put some heat on there until tomorrow ,you should be fine by then ....If you stick your fingernail in it does it leave an indentation??? Not a very technical way to check the curing but thats how I know if its ready...I always sand before appling any filler so another way to know if its cured is to DA it with 180 and if it balls up like the old lacquers on your paper ,its not ready...

Thanks for the advice Guys. I think I will go ahead and bust it open, run some heat today and take the day off. It has taken me 6 weeks to paint the cowl and sand two doors. What is one more day. .

I may ride up to my buddy's house. I understand he has the '47 convert back on the frame.

Glad that I could help. Injectors are a lot easier than tearing the engine down and finding nothing wrong. That black oil spiting out the exhaust is almost 100% for sure fuel darkened by the exhaust. Definitely change the oil before you run it again. With the overfueling there has definitely been some fuel run past the rings into the crankcase. Keep us posted, but I trust all will be well with reman injectors. I suspect a bad nozzle on the bad injector. Allan John Dantes Sr. (adantessr)
