Now that its cooled down some outside and its bearable to work out in the garage the time has come to correct the mistake I made the last time I rebuilt my motor.

Quick recap, rebuilt the motor after loosing it due to electronic malfunction.... drinking beer while putting in the rings, later wondering where I had low compression on one cylinder.... put compression ring on upside down. Drove it all summer and now finally getting around to doing new rings.... and maybe just a little more head work......


Well if everything goes smoothly this evening I may have the motor apart tonight, first I HAVE to do alittle cleaning in the garage so I'll have room to work but after that its gonna be balls to the wall on tearing the engine down.

I more than likely wont take any initial tear down pics since it'll be the same old shit as the previous threads I've done.... trust me it looks the same everytime.

If something new pops up then yeah, I'll snap a few pics.

This time there wont be any beer comsumption and HOPEFULLY I'll manage to NOT screw anything up [poke]

I managed to get the garage cleaned up and the intake and intake piping off last night... not too bad of a start.

Then I went inside to play a little Xbox and I ended up with the Red rings of Death....

That makes me wanna kick Bill Gates square in the nuts [nutkick]

You and rings just don't seem to get along do you. I'd recommend avoiding marriage, onion rings, ring dings, ring around the rosie, and any other activities involving rings

Your car made the red ring happen.. It was sad that you stopped working on it to play Xbox so it made the video games go away.....or something
