Disney, Gammey, I hope to pass through Nashville twice the weekend after next, likely Friday night and Sunday afternoon.   Could I pick up a camshaft then?

Hope to head E on 40, possibly returning W on 24.   Close to either of ya?

I may need some GPS unit to plot my progress (or lack thereof) in order to borrow tools from whichever tennespeeder is closest...

So I bought this van thinking the engine was shot and I'd have to swap engines, but in the first 6 weeks of the year it made 3 trips to E TN, about 1800 miles.  I suppose as long as I keep the LS engine and box of parts to assemble it then I won't have any problems.  (Other than that nasty piston slap on cold start...)

AC notes:  added 5 cans to empty system.  Compressor noisy.  Living on borrowed time...

Disney, thanks for the camshaft.  I think that's the last LS piece I needed, so now time is nearing to get the boys together and make a school day out of assembly.  BTW, very nice shop.  It makes me wanna finish my house so I can clean out mine and work on fenders.
