Reinstalled the valves and cam into the head, and I learned how to adjust valve clearances (a VERY intense and precise task), and so much more! Most importantly, the importance of having a clean work environment and clean parts, preparation is the most important.
How goes it!
This is it, everyone! Head reassembly is Thursday, and if there’s any time before class, it’s going back in the car! Unfortunately, the head bolts won’t be here until Friday, but this weekend is a whole years worth of work and effort finally reaches the moment we’ve been waiting for!!
Who likes jazz? For the life of me, I cannot identify this kind of jazz, but I LOVE it!
If you’re insane enough. Fortunately, I am and it’s good to be something. Didn’t know that Minerva Blue was a color for these cars and after a quick search, WOW!
This is how it’s done. The 931 hood was too wide to fit in the Explorer’s trunk, so the 2nd row had to do! There was sooo much unnecessary bondo on the perfectly straight hood, we did a lot of rust repair and bondo correction for me to paint this week.
So I just found out that the 2.0L 276hp/300tq in the mid-range Giulia uses SOHC?? I’m pretty sure FCA is the only major company still using it, but why?? It’s four valves per cylinder, but what advantage could SOHC have over DOHC to retain it?
I’ve got another interview tomorrow morning at Makino. Kinda overwhelmed with how fast this one came about, but no harm in applying to multiple places, right?
On so many levels, theoretical and real levels. This might be the greatest loss for humanity this decade, or maybe even this century.....If we even get to the end of this century. One of the greatest minds to have ever lived, and we were all so fortunate to have him.
Found pictures of a 928 next to a brand new Panamera Turbo. Bigger car is bigger.
Pretty cool huh. I love pictures like this.
Lemme tell ya, I LOVE finding cancer bubbling on newer cars. Not really, but here’s what I found when I popped open the trunk on my Mustang this weekend.
Gimmie Shelter: An oldie but goodie. My playlist is running stale. Please recommend me some fun and catchy (not too catchy) songs! Nothing extreme and over the top please.
The 2nd interview went great! Got a tour of where I’ll eventually be working at Yazaki North America once we get scheduling sorted out. I celebrated by doing paint correction and a full detail on my Mustang.
Let’s do it!!
I’m a wee bit bored.
How’re we doing this morning?
