Got the head off of the block..........................................seems to me my leak down failure may have come from the head, and not the rings.

What do y'alls think?

Are those valves bent, or open intentionally!?

I hopped in my truck with black cloth seats yesterday. After pouring gypcrete all day. I was busting bags to. My seat is now kind of white. Who puts black cloth in any ways? Just asking for that.

The cam is still in, so they are open because of that.

Oh absolutely! I would take free recaros!

I removed my bedliner today to clean under it. It fell on my arm and made me bleed. :|

Still sitting here looking at the MM up on the ramps, engine on the stand.......pockets empty. :cry:

Harley's switch went out, Honda's wiring needs going over, D-50 needs rear brake shoes.

50-70% chance of rain thru Tuesday, can't even cut the grass....(oh yea, reminds me....need a starter relay for the freaking mower...............)

Perfect example of "when it rains, it pours.

So in other words....................nut-n-huny done to my ride

Still happy though. :D :lol: :)

Got my Coors and my Jack.................

Auxillary fuse block installed in the bay, oil pressure sender installed w/ wiring fed into the cabin.

Things to do tonight,
Figure out where I can get heavy duty Crimper/strippers (for 1-2 guage wire)? Looking to you Ryan for suggestions!

That's some thick wire. Back in the day when I used to build stereo systems, I used to have this awesome crimping tool that you put the wire & o-ring in, and then you smack it with a hammer and it crimped it. I also used to solder the ends on too for extra security. Are you putting an o-ring on the end of yours?

Boom - found a picture of one -> http://evguys.files.wordpress.com/2009/09/crimper.jpg
