    While i was at i decided to upgrade the elbow.
    Though now loooking, it seems i might have an issue with the 3" elbow and my DP as far as clearance. Either way i'll get back together for the Reunion.

    I need to mount the new alternator bracket and alternator (as soon as I find the damn bolts!), reinstall distributor, plugs, wires, etc., find the new PCV valve I bought, resinstall intercooler, change oil and filter, and maybe a couple other little things... oh, and also need to find my extra fuel line connector clip things... Broke one...
    Does anyone else spend more timing looking for parts you took off than actual reassembly? Especially when something's been sitting awhile?

    After all this, I need to stock the cooler...
    If it ain't broke... Give me some time!

    I put the bolts in plastic container... but I've lost the container... LOL!
    This was a comparitively small project... Removal and reinstalling the head... It just seems like everything that could go wrong, went wrong... Another Murphy's law thing...

    Anyone going to be packing an IAC for sale on the trip?? I have a feeling mine is going 'south' so to speak. If not, where can I get one?

    My car was acting like 'christine' the other day and almost left me stranded at an intersection after dying at the red light. After gettting it running and to my destination it ran fine for a couple of other legs of my trip...@!%$ intermittent issues!!

    Looks like the bigger wrench worked! Now if she'll just stay passed out for a few more weeks, I'll be set! Registration's in the mail.
