Well now it's wimpy again :( . All I did was
let it run a little while I put the computer and
switch up under the dash. I didn't flip the switch
at all and didn't get any 42s (would if I had flipped
it). So WTF? I'm puzzeled.
Well it's loaded on the car hauler - so even though
it's still acting wimpy it isn't too bad to move
up onto the ramps. Loaded the back of it with
the spare engine, tranny, and collection of
lawn mowers and other small engines. My 4' piece
of heavy rail-road track sits perfectly by the
front wheel, and I'm thinking I can load my
engine hoist and other heavy stuff along the
rails tomarrow. Someone is comming to
take away the boat project - aborted - tomarrow,
and the movers are comming later. Will be
loaded by thursday and rollin Saturday.
Hey Elliot...I know you want to fix your truck rather badly, but why not
wait until you can settle down and finish moving? I assume you're not trying
to pull the stuff you are moving with using that same truck...

William The Guesser,
Yea, it's loaded onto the car carrier now. No more getting done
to it for a while now.
The base timing set helped, but didn't seem to solve
whatever it is, and it's intermittent. At least it has
enough power to move up onto the carrier (it didn't
have that much when it got stuck in a 6" rut
a couple of days ago). And when it's good - it's good!
It's an intellectual curiosity at this point more than
anything else. My wife wants something newer (ie: GMC Jimmy,
or Buick Rendezvous) - so it's an excess vehicle anyway.
It's tempting to go to NY via Hazelton and just junk it
but then again, I've never registered it so I could just
let the strippers have at it in NY (you know - those car
shells along the road through Harlem).
It's fully loaded with my curbside collected junk too.
There's the extra engine, tranny, and a few parts for it,
and then there's 3 lawn mowers and a couple small motors,
and most important the 4' section of railroad track.
So depending on where I land in LI, and the tolerance
level there for parked vehicles, it might just make it
there with me.
I'm hoping the hotel has an internet room or something
- otherwise the NG may not hear from me for quite some
time. I will preserve my PC connection till I pull
out Saturday morning.
