Below that, the two rubber hoses going in

Until you have that heart attack
everything in balance
pretty much rest of the week i'll eat veggies, very little bread, some fats, etc. Everything organic/locally sourced.
I eat meat like once a week....usually chicken breasts or hamburger. It is SO expensive up here......a simple 2lb chuck roast is about $15
If i ate like some of you BBQ folks....I'd beer spending about $2000 a month up here.
Heater core bypassed It ain't the prettiest but it will work. But found that I have a valve cover gasket leak though.
Before and after
Oh and done with just my mora for cutting the hoses and a screwdriver for the clamps. Total cost $20
Edit: ok he just wants the clips from the clip plates so never mind.
good stuff man! no issues running?
Local BC man, despite being paralyzed, goes paragliding. This has been all over the local news here.
The place they launched from I know well. (i hike and 4x4 near there. The view is amazing)
Got tempted again...
Nope, none at all. Well still having the battery checked out but other than that..
Ive been continuing my story to the wifey that I’m going to learn the bag pipes. Actually the more I look into it the cooler I think it would be! But realistically not feasible. So I have spent most the day researching alternatives and I think I’m settled on a tin Whistle.. More practical and far quieter. I have always wanted to learn the harmonica to play around the campfire and never was really successful. The tin whistle seems more up my alley for a campfire instrument.
I’ll see if I can get a video to load. But for anyone who has seen lord of the rings this is the whistle that plays the shire theme and concerning hobbits. Could def be interesting to play around the fire
2 additional benifits to the Tin whistle is they can be had CHEAP and they are a great stepping stone into playing the bagpipes if I still wanted to later on.
Well the car went into the shop today. Hopefully it's nothing too bad. But I also found out that there was a recall on my vehicle for the front valve cover gasket, which is one thing I was having replaced. Question though, do mechanic shops have to tell you if there's a recall or are they allowed to charge you for something you can get free? I don't think they've started on it yet, but I don't want to wait too long to say something.
Any half decent, reputable shop will tell you when they run the VIN.
I've had horrible luck when it comes to shops here. This one was recommended though, and it's a small shop. Hopefully they're honest. Gonna call first thing in the morning just to be sure.
Did you go to Blue Eye?
The wifey was driving my truck today.. Someone made the mistake of plowing there little Honda Civic type car into the back bumper... Other then scarring the heck’s out of the wifey she’s fine.
BUT the all metal bumper and ball hitch while kinda bent tore the other drivers front end up!!
It appears that it sheared off all their break lines etc...
Yet another reason i own a truck!
No not yet. We had to be picked up and it was too far for them to drive to come get us.
There was another shop out on T highway that I've used in the past, but since the owner died I'm not sure about the current management.
Well I got a call from the auto shop this morning. He said the valve cover gaskets were not the things leaking but the intake manifold was. That is going to be almost $800 to fix, according to him but he said it wasn't that bad so it could wait a while. Also there is no battery drain or draw so that's good, it must've been just the battery itself. This is what I like to hear and he was honest about everything.
Good. I'm glad to hear that you dodged a bullet for now.
