Comming down to the wire! If you've been doing work to your car, give it a thorough run to work or something to make sure no gremlins rear their ugly heads.

So I guess the engine should be in the Speedster by now?? Laughing Stabbing it in tonite and running it like crazy to see if it still runs hot. If it still runs hot, there is a plan "B", but it involves still MORE thrashing. Plus I need to get the Turkis bus all dialed in, and Sandra's checked over and, and, and...
Looking forward to seeing everyone again. I'll have a fire going in the burn pit to welcome you guys Thursday evening!!

We can always have a tech night and beat it into submission thursday evening. With twenty cars there, a fire going, and some beer flowing, I'm sure we'll have enough light and spare parts to git-er-dun.

The only tin I used was the fan shroud and the "53" pulley. My tin is single port and this is a dual port engine. I found some dual port tins at work and just painted it all silver.

Engine back in and still running hot. No idea why. Going to thrash a used engine Lonnie said i could use in it tomorrow night and see what happens. I'm pissed and tired. Still need to get the Turkis squared away and Sandra's bus checked out. Hers is pretty much set just need to do a basic looksee.

That sucks Dave. The bus now has some new kicks on the back. Still got to change out the front wheels and change the oil. Should have that done tonight. Cant wait for Thursday. See yall there. If someone can call when you get close to Warner Robins that would be cool. I think Glenn said he still had my number but if not its 229-740-0264.

Looking to be low 40's on Thursday night. Is everyone camping out in tents, or is there floor space to crash on. Just trying to plan on what all we need to bring (or we may run to a hotel after the fire dies down!! Laughing ).

Weather.com says low of 46 which is no where near as cold as it got last year. Perfect sleeping bag weather IMO. Dave's place is a few miles off the interstate not exactly "right off the exit". But close enough if you're not too hammered to drive back. Then again, if you're drunk, the cold probably won't bother you until you wake up anyway.

Raymond...that's the number I have. I'll call you around exit 149 if that's cool.

True, I think I have camped out in colder temps, but I'm also thinking about room in the bug. We will definitely hang out around the fire, but may still head to a hotel. Want to save a little room in the car for goodies, and the tent, two sleeping bags, and air matress are a little bulky. Maybe I need to look into a roof rack!

There is plenty of floor space if you don't want to camp. I think all of the beds are spoken for, but there are 3 couches and floor everywhere! The fire will be going and by the looks of things, I'll probably be either putting an engine in, or pulling an engine out.... Evil or Very Mad

Greg and Clara stopped by the college this morning so I cancelled my 9 AM class and had a nice visit with them. They have logged over 3300 mile I believe at this point.

Nice to see they made it this far with minimal problems. Did you offer Clara some grease?

Busses love grease!

I'll be happy to help you plug and unplug engines when I get there Dave.
