Sunday Done

By , January 13, 2008 9:19 pm

Truck is done and gone. Still needs some paint and undercoat but is road worthy and being driven. So far total out of pocket cost is $0. Lotta sweat and sore muscles as well as having donor trucks to keep the cost nill.

Tim’s F150 is next up. Water pump is leaking. Remove, clean, replace, refill, check for leaks. Pretty basic stuff. Just a lotta bolts and hope none are corroded too bad.

Looked at the 76 Honda this afternoon. May try to crank it off in the next day or so. Oil and coolant are both fine. Need to air the tires and find and install a battery, add fuel and see how it goes from there. Unless the fuel pump is frozen or the carb has problems I think it will crank. Seems like it had a valve that was sticking. See what a little marvels will do.

Another one up to be put back running is the 8? escort. Just got to see how much it is gonna take to put it back together. Lynx trans and front end parts should fit.

Need to crank the Lincoln off also. Way too many cars. Keep thinking about putting the engine and at least some of the running gear from under the Lincoln, under the 65 ford truck. Guess I need to get the tape measure out and see what it’s gonna take… πŸ™„ Nothing like a hot rod Lincoln… 😈 😎 πŸ™„

More later…

Sunday morning feeling down

By , January 13, 2008 11:11 am

Actually not down as in depressed but down as in the body needing some serious down time. Wish I was done with the truck so I didn’t have to get it together and go out and work on it. However I ain’t, and have got to, so… πŸ™ Guess this is the total of my bit of blather for the morning. Gonna get one more cup of coffee and then go to it. πŸ˜•

Interesting slant on OLPC and the Intel mess. It’ll be a hoot if they do manage to drag Gates and micro$loth into it. 😈
