Completely agree. I do, do the same.

well duh, I am a jeeper of course I want to strangle some of my co-workers once and a while but that is with any job any where.

I tore down a diesel engine at work yesterday and installed another in an application, Calibration/tuning starts tomorrow.

Re: Important

Wouldn't you have to be nuts to attend WF in the first place? I mean...... beyond the nutcases who are known to frequent said event, let's all go slog around an old quarry, in the mud, near freezing temps, and rain, snow or both?

Bonus points for showing up with half a shop to finish the build.

See ya'll next year?

Re: Important

If I have the money I'll be back for sure!

This time life might suck a bit more though. There is a good chance I am buying a J20 tomorrow... and selling the purple pig.

- Ken "van was great for sleeping but the J20 has a standard and a 360" Stein

edit: I built a bumper in the campground because I had to to go wheeling and I ran out of time before leaving. It wasn't really a voluntary thing, more "I have to do this if I am to end up where I want to be"... so I went for it.

Re: Important

Anyone know anything about Luminas? Brad? My roommate bought a lumina to scrap but it fired up the first time he turned the key. It dies when you put it in gear but runs fine in park and neutral.

Re: Important

Sounds like a vacuum leak of some sort or transmission control system problem.
