So on the way to work yesterday, the handyman stopped me to hand me a flyer they were putting on everyone's door.

"Effective immediately, cars that are unregistered, have expired registration, or junk cars will be towed."

And my car has no tag. Hell, I'd not yet transferred the title after a year and a half. So I called the park when I got to work and asked the property manager to please not tow my car. She said as long as I got a tag on it tomorrow (today), and it's not on blocks, I'm ok.

So... 2.5 hours at the DMV and I've got my antique tag. Yay!

'Gotcher' tag now, sweet! Nothing like a swift kick in the pants to move you along.

I just got this from Ron a couple hours ago. I figured that as late as it is now, this will qualify as technically 'yesterday,' and thought that I'd pass it on.

Hey Kim, just wanted to let someone know I'm still alive and doing fine. I'm having trouble signing onto Volksrods forum, I was given a laptop computer, when I tried to sign on I couldn't remember my password because I had it saved on my phone, I just pushed the button and I was instantly signed on. After I couldn't sign on on the laptop I tried the "forgot password" thing, clicked it, added my email address, then I answered the question, I still haven't gotten an email, checked my spam folder too. I have no idea what's going on, hopefully by Monday I can get on again.

Oh yeah the question I had to answer was what material are tires made of, I answered rubber, I keep thinking it was a trick question.
I hop all is good with everyone.

OK, if you are picky, "yesterday" is not a few weeks ago, but I have been busy. Anyway, I picked up a project from a friend who was doing a father/daughter project that stalled a few years ago when he got sick. She called me recently to tell me he had passed away and as we had talked back when he first got sick about my buying them out she wanted to know if I was still interested. Of course I was, and now have a huge pile of parts added to my project list, but it is all the right stuff. Four wheel disk brakes, built engine, lots of new pieces and parts including patch panels for the body and pan. All I need now is time and money to work on it.

Thanks Kim. Run out of room to put stuff, so building stuff like this will be put on hold for a bit.

Well yesterday I finished assembling the transmission, I installed the SVDA distributor, set the timing and adjusted the valves, now I just need to find the strength to pull the engine and swap the transmissions, then put the engine back in and hook everything back up and sync the carbs again

I hope I have enough in me to finish it by Monday

Ron

BTW Jeff, that pulley table is pretty cool, how big is it, diameter and hieght?
Depending on that you should make some stuff to go along with it, like if it's to be used as a coffee table or end table you should make some coasters for drinking glasses
My friend who owned the scrapyard had a 4' by 4' by 4' box of cast iron belt pulleys, most of them were 3" to 8" diameter by about 3-1/2" to 4" wide, I grabbed a few years ago, I think he scrapped them by now but they make nice wheels, they work great for rolling stuff on a dirt floor, I'm gonna cut one in half to use as a pattern so I can cast them 2 at a time in aluminum so they aren't so heavy

Again cool table

Ron

The pulley is 24" diameter, glass is 25" on top. It's about 23.5" tall. Made up of 1" black pipe. (11% rebate from Menard's too!) To keep the pulley from moving, there are 4 small engine studs going round it on the base. Glad you like it!

yesterday i installed my PLX AFR gauge.. today I tried to use it to really dial in my carbs.. no matter what jet changes I made, or how far in or out i screwed/unscrewed the mixture screws, nothing affected how it ran or the AFR numbers..

decided to check if I blew out a manifold gasket and maybe had a leak screwing me up.. nope. no leak, i broke one of my manifolds..



so it's a few hours later, engine is on the stand in the garage, gonna surf for new manifolds now.

this'll help me stop procrastinating.. i needed to yank the engine anyway to install the CHT sensors, and I wanted to yank it and the rear fenders so i can redo my access holes.. guess I can do that now..

Always something, isn't there? Yesterday I was working on the Single Cab and the fuel pump (a stock single action ) quit. I thought that it might be a blockage from the old tank that I missed when I cleaned out the lines. Nope. At least the engine doesn't have to come out.

Hot day, but I rode my old Triumph into nearby Santa Rosa to pick up a fuel pump for the Single Cab's 351 Windsor engine. The guy brought it out and checked the price twice. I was expecting thirty or forty bucks. The total with my 10% veteran's discount came to... $14.65.

He should have added on $13.26 for the "snarky, bad pun" tax.

Which is why I didn't send you to pick it up for me.
Then with things mechanical seemingly going well, the Ranger's starter quit. Well, I guess that 129,000 miles got to it. At least the truck was parked where I could get a jack and stands under it. So, it's in the high eighties, humid, in the sun, I'm laying in dirt and gravel. A neighbor walks by and says, "You're really lucky you can fix things like that." I think I felt luckier when I was a few years younger.

Yea lucky I can do it and usually cut up my hands in the process. Not to mention the grease and oil that will stick to me or depending how sore I will be from luckily having to crawl under something that could squash me like a bug.

Yep Lucky!!!

Oh I really hate having to crawl under a car. Doesn't matter if it has jack stands or in on a lift. Being under a car isn't fun for me.
