  1. I hate to admit this, but you are not alone! My wife called me into the house after I did a tune up. I closed the hood, and forgot about it. The next morning I was perplexed as to why it wouldn't start so I could get to work... I finished everything except installing the spark plug wires... Sigh. Quick fix at least! LOL. Six wires are easy to install back, so I was fine and made it to work on time. It seems that family life = Distractions, so yeah, start to finish can be a challenge.
  2. Too bad it's small block chebbied! Boo! I have saved much worse cars. And yes, I can spell Chevrolet, I just like to poke fun at this terrible trend.
  3. LOL... Boy ain't that the truth!
  4. I might have a spare, please PM me if you like.
  5. What a great day, and you got to see some great cars and meet some down to earth people too! Very cool! I take my oldest son to car shows also.
  6. I seen something similar in Poway. Strange looking cars for sure. I never really felt like asking the guy about it...
  7. I hope that they sell you a piston, I am bummed that this happened to you.
  8. That is a relief! I think that I will save up and buy a set soon...
  9. Whenever I work on my friends 1949 Coronet, I have to be really cautious, as I have "scalped" my bald head a time or two. I wish that they opened more also, being tall brings on this dilemma.
  10. Definitely a new exhaust seat required. If the crack is wider than the new replacement seat, you can use a Lock-in-Stich kit from Turlock, CA. There are some you tube videos that show this repair being performed. I have personally used this product with complete success.
  11. I certainly hope that he hangs in there....
  12. Due to occasional 18+ hour work days, I can totally relate to this. Especially when your totally exhausted and can't find the right words! LOL
  13. Exactly... This is why I scratched my head on the pushrod bearing reference. I was questioning the meaning and wanted to know what exactly he meant by it. The term "pushrod bearing" did not originate from me, just in case some folks have misread something here....
  14. You have a great looking car Blaine, welcome to the forum.
  15. Me too... Had some surprises come up. I have to lay low for a while. It is too bad that I am having no success at selling anything so I can buy some parts I need...
