Weather was nice out and the temp got up to around 45. So my grandson and I hooked up some water hoses to the side feed intake I put on the built 3sgte. Wasn't much, but great making memories with my grandson.

That's good. I was hoping that engine worked out alright for you.

I'm tempted to just drop my car off at a shop and have them finish everything up. All the little nickel and dime parts I keep having to replace are adding up to more time wasted than anything.

The Good, put new shoes on the front of the FX-16. The Bad, is while I had it up in the air with the floor jack, I notice the floor panels where getting bad quick. Another bucket list item moved to the top of the Most do Now for this summer. Sure wish I could find a good southern shell???

I took the car out for a Sunday drive and blew the rear diff seal. I knew I should have replaced it before I put it in. Oh well atleast it made it home safely.

I'm bringing mine in tomorrow, normally I prefer working on my on stuff but 6000km in 4 years is too damn low for me.

I think I decided I over filled it. It wasn't leaking out the gasket, but it was coming out the vent hole on top.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who barely puts any mileage on my car.

Thats exactly what i did. The engine has been out of my car 4 times now and in the 2 years I've owned it I have probably only driven it for 6 months. I called Kris from KO racing up in Oregon city and he wrote me a quote and picked the car up from my house. Killer deal, good work, and I am a super happy customer with a great daily driver again.
