The valve job on my dump van got interrupted by wall paper, wall painting, and now sanding and re-staining window sills. Tomorrow a little varnishing and sanding then out to the van and check rocker lift before I pull the heads. In take is off and exhaust manifold bolt is broken. All this for a vehicle that moves probably 70 miles a year.
The goggles were for viewing chevy3100's paint!

Tonight I sand blasted and painted the idler arm for the Rambler. I also cut the bushing down to the correct length.

While out there I brain stormed on making my Gran Sport accessible to my friend Steve. I came up with some good stuff I believe that is going to make it happen.

Primed my doors for the last time (I hope) tonight. Will block them one more time and they should be ready for paint.

The check engine light on my new (to me) van is still off.

The Dockside Cafe at Harrison Bay State Park reopened for the season and I just had some fresh smoked briskett for supper.

All and all a very good day.

I'm thinking maybe it idles rich cause if i drive then park for an hour or 2 it takes a little extra cranking to start or i have to hold the gas half way down. Maybe I'll play with the idle mixture....again

Thanks Brian. I assume everyone is looking forward to daylight savings time and warmer weather so they can get a little more done on their toys. Especially those who are not retired have to go to the garage for a while after supper.

Won't be long

I am looking forward to it John, big time. It's nice leaving to go home now with the sun still up. That getting dark at 5:30 sucks.

I just put some time into the idler arm for the Rambler. Fine tuned the bushing length, made a pair of washers and painted it all. I installed the bushing in the arm and found that it needed a little fine tuning to the mounting surface so I did so and put a coat of paint on it leaving them out in the garage for tonight.

Looks really good. I know you are excited.

Brians Rambler is going to be going the direction he points it pretty soon too.

My wife let me bring my doors in and put them in the guest room so the Epoxy would cure. Now that's a good woman.
