Morning Ben
Last year it took 3 months to get some manuals and other parts in, refunded after 6 weeks or more then by the time parts arrived i didn't ned them. I kept them as it had been months upon months. I feel bad for sellers.
Morning Snidely

I hope up with stiff as hell back and shoulders, I think an easy day will be called for when I can loosen the back up.

Hey knockers,
as many times I've read you working on your wife's car, you have completely restored it.
Is that your job?....you're a car restorer with a Hunter Alignment rack and heads?

She drives the wheels off that fukr that's for sure, at 100k the engine was resealed and inserts for heads along with suspension work(shocks, struts). It's ate a fair amount of AC compressors and a few alternators(suck monkey balls to change). Now it's getting long in the tooth and needs to be parked but vehicles too pricey right now so fixing it.
They are nice cars albeit overly complicated and alot of difficult things to do on them then there's the 26 miles of wiring and the interconnected systems. I wouldn't own it if had to pay someone to work on it.
But yes it's my job to keep her ride on the road and AC working...

The only thing I don't do at home is balance tires and annual inspection (have tire dismount
tools). Been looking for a balancer in my price range, oh and don't turn rotors.. Yet.

Learn how to use a strobe balancer, and get a brake lathe.
I would have both; but, I don't need more "friends".


I just put a compressor, drier, and xTube on my low rider .
At 23 y/o it was due...blew out low side valve, created a restriction, and easily proved my high pressure switch turns the compressor off at 500psi on high side.
Now blows 40* out of drivers side window vent.

Morning Ben.

It sounds like you suck at ordering parts. Are your going to order them from another source.

Sometimes you just have to do what a man has to do and that is to do whatever you want to do.

What kind is your wife's car?

Morning snide

Last night, I started detailing the exterior of my wife's Vette. I got about four hours in. So I have about ten hours of beer drinking and listening to tunes to go. Hopefully, I have the time and energy to mow the yard afterwards.

I am sure everyone was disappointing reading about rescheduling the meeting. But I have an interesting and fun topic that I am sure everyone will be pleased to discuss. I will let you know ahead of time that it will be about the Modulus of Elasticity.

I have a time slot that I'll introduce: "Yakhchal; night-sky cooling."
It'll be a real edgy lecture, full of surprises at every turn.
