    A big thanks to everyone!

    Wanted to drop a line and give thanks to Everyone who help with fixing my ride this year! Hoping not to forget anyone, some moments were alittle fuzzy and busy.

    Thanks to George (Kiwi) for pushing and helping me to gitter done.

    Thanks to Ken H. for turning wrenches, he had a good reason though, as it was his ride home as well.

    Thanks to Jason (Pink)for the compression tester and valve stem seals needed.

    Thanks to Steve (onthegosvo) for the valve removal/install tool and Supervisor support.

    Thanks to Ron L (Viking) for the head gasket and intake gasket set.

    Thanks to Rick (Dragpak) for his help in getting it back together. Even though it was a Southerners car.

    Thanks to Boport, Bud, and the rest of the SVOCA BOD for the replacement valves needed to finished the job started. Could not have got it done without them.

    Thanks to James R. and Tony P. for the leak down tester and compressor use. Tony holding to flash light when needed.

    Thanks to Don B. (Butta) for the tarp and Lead Cheerleader support.

    Thanks to Kerry and James for the effort to remove and bring me a replacement valve. I would have not noticed the valve size either. Your willingness to help was very appreciated.

    Thanks to Rob W. for the lift to the Autopart store.

    Thanks to Ryan Cloud for his knowledge and keeping things straight under the hood, to get it right the first time. Also a fine flashlight holder.


    I have attended a few Reunions and have taken part in what happen to me this past weekend on getting someone elses car together. Everyone's willingness to help even in a small way, parts, advice, tools, etc. This is the kind of stuff that helps you remember why I am are a part of the SVOCA.

    Thanks again fellas,
    Tim
