Sis and I made enough room in her garage that we can park side by side so that makes life easier on her that way.
Was thinking about getting ahold of the guy Carl ? that offered to let me park and work on it at his place. Does anyone know Carl? I would not want to impose on a guy that no one knows and I do not know if he has any experience with working on the slants or not. I don't remember seeing him post anything in here?
Anyway, being told by this guy 1600 justs shows how much of a rip off people can be and yet portray themselves as being "nice guys"... He is used to working on multi thousands of dollar custom cars for guys that have too much money and not enough brains...
I was planning on doing just what you suggest Don... pulling the head so I can see just what shape the gasket is in and then I will be able to see what condition the valves are in.
Being at the mercy of ripoffs is not what this trip was supposed to turn out to be! It was supposed to be a fun time and my first long camping trip in years and years...
Oh well, shit happens...
I will let you know what happens later this morning when I get back over there and get the thing moved.
Going to call Carl and stop by his place if he is around and see what kind of parking he has - it may be a lot easier to park it and camp in his yard while I do this too. Do not know at this point.
Right now I am also hobbling around and feel like a pretzel I hurt so much.
Makes life so much more fun this way.
One of my brothers says 1600! Go buy ya honda and sell that money pit you have! He doesn't realize that other than the new radiator, this thing has not cost me hardly anything in the 13 years I have been driving it since I rebuilt it!
By the way, he told me that it was leaking out the tailpipe on the test - no other place. He also quoted - new spark plugs, oil filter and radiator fluids - all of which are less than a few hours old!
