  5. Renewing my 08' Silverado

    Well, once I have the Vette done and going good, thinking of doing something suspension has to come first so I can jump railroad tracks
  6. LS3 advice.

    So Hutters agreed to tear down and “rebuild” my new motor from Thompson. what they found was the Moro was not debuted and full of aluminum from machine work. Cylinders were honed and came out good, piston coating was shot and for the money was more cost effective buying another set. Crank was polished and is ok. Johnson lifters we’re trashed and lifter bores need honed. So new bearings, pistons rings and another new set of lifters. I’ll get some break on the work but at this point there is no turning back so need to make it right. documenting all the issues they found. Pistons won’t be in until mid January and the car is in their storage building for the winter. is what it is.

  8. Random thought thread

    Put the lift to work today. Doing brakes on the daily beater yoda. Brembo pads with Baer rotors. I couldn’t find any Hawk pads like I had on it before. That combo was a lot better at stopping than the Toyota OE brakes. I hope these pads do just as good.

    Ashley, I might be able to get some funding and participation to do a scaled-down version. Maybe something in conjunction with Idols Aside?

  14. Happy Thanksgiving

    Happy Thanksgiving, all! Having the toddler running around made it one of the best! Just wish my Dad could have met my daughter before he got dementia and passed away. But his 80 year old sister and her husband made it up to my house. My Mom, sister, and my mother-in-law also were there, so it was still a great thanksgiving!

  16. Funny of the day.

    I find humor in Mike Leach interviews. Try it.
  17. Express Success

    Update from a couple months ago: Another blessed breakdown. We made a trip to E TN and returned home. One trip to town, a fuel fill up, and a trip home later (30 miles) left the van in a crank/no start condition. Fuel pump wouldn't run. Jumped the relay, hit the tank with a large hammer.....no go. Added a battery charger to that combo and got the pump to run long enough to pump about 30 gallons of fuel out. Dropping the tank in the gravel was no fun, but I was glad to do it in the back yard vs interstate somewhere. AC Delco pump for the family truckster. Purchase mileage: about 350k Current: 370k Cold engine piston slap is plenty loud on cold morning starts, but it still quiets down as the engine gets a little temp. Uses about a quart of oil every tank/tank and a half. Paint delamination is stupid on these vans. The hood was peeling in places, so I got the bright idea to pressure wash it. That only took about 1/5 of the paint off, so I found the 30 yo DA sander and bought some sanding discs to attack the removed hood. Put a rattle can of Rustoleum on it, it's all white now. My wife thinks it looks good. Apparently she can't tell ugly, which says a lot about me.

    Happy Thanksgiving. update: 4:30’s in but still needs a converter. But pulls reallyhard above 3000. More drive around town too. and because I just can’t seem to ever be done with it. Custom winch bumper, winch and some stupid bright LED’s that cannot be used on the street. Next will be adjustable coil over’s. Staying with around 3.5” lift but getting rid of leveling kit. Should ride much better.

    Check this out! I heard about this ministry on a podcast, today, and it has me excited. This is down in yall's neck of the woods. It is overseen by Longhollow Baptist Church. I'm grateful for the men that invested in me, intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually, and we all know young men that we could do the same for. God Guys and Gears
