Not that much fun yesterday
Got too busy on other things.
But did have another tiny victory -- installed the new antenna mast. Looks much better without the cracked-up rubber.
Did finish prepping the head -- unlike as mentioned somewhere on this site, the little factory dabs of paint on the lifters are to point toward the oiling holes (direct from the Workshop Manual), and _not_ necessarily all toward the front. On my engine, that meant in opposite directions for each cylinder. Need to pick up some more assembly lube, running low; in the old days we'd use STP Oil Treatment, but the proper lube sticks better/longer. The FSM says to use a particular thick grade of oil -- bad advice, IMHO.
Also removed the engine-to-right axle bracket and the crank position sensor, and shot Liquid Wrench on the exhaust bolts in preparation for removing the cat and under engine head pipe today. Also saw another coolant line that I should order and replace.
Hopefully a big day today! Gotta go get the space heater going ...
Fixed Up a white 2001 P-code SE Sedan
