    The boy has done some reading and found out that the cams in some of these engines will look like this after 200,000. so I had at least change the cam and lifters…..joe

    Ya gotta do Whatsa gotta do when you break a tap off in your engine block. Was finishing up cleaning some of the threads on my six cylinder and as I went to remove the tap and it broke off flush Time to get some washers, a nut along with the welder out and do some magic. Thank God I have some idea of what I am supposed to be doing….joe

    When it happened I just dropped my tools and walked away from it for about a half hour to 45 minutes before I went back out in the garage and decided to see if I could get this out. I figured that was the best thing to do rather than cuss and take a hammer to the block, lol. Yes I kept my cool….joe

    recently my little grip and grab tool broke and i pondered as to whether to get a new one or with my mechanical wizardry come up with a fix for this one ,, the rubber piece that snaps it back closed had broken .. i tried a few glues and none would work ,, today i thought about concocting a spring steel type lever that i could affix to it and keep on trucking .. after fashioning such a thing out of a close hanger i realized that it would not spring back ... spring back i thought .. i scrounged about the garage and found this coil spring from who knows what and attached it to my tool and low and behold we have a good as new grip and grab ,, just in time to as i was getting up to my ankles in pine cones ,, for a lot of years bending over to pick them up was not a problem ..

    Reminds me of the time in the Navy when I stopped by to visit a Navy mech friend at the duplex he shared with two other sailors, and he had the engine out of his MGB in their living room with parts scattered on every horizontal surface!! At least your son put down cardboard on the table!!

    Enjoy the little things in life, and you may look back one day and realize that they were really the BIG things.

    HA !! i actually do have a grand daughter but iv`e never seen her .. i drive this way more than i drive the corolla .. i have not even ran out the free tank of gas that it came with .. i had a muffler shop delete the muffler but it only made a very slight difference in loudness and of course no additional power surge that i can feel ..
