Well, the time has come to make some tough decisions. I am thinking about selling Bonnie. She will be a driver when she goes. So, if you might be interested, let me know.

Got her back on the ground. Put bearings in the front rotors and adjusted the rear brakes up some. still got some air in the lines and need to get the generator swapped out. Then I should be able to start driving her more often.

Got the generator swapped out tonight and it's a failure. It's only putting out 6.5 volts. So, I guess I'll be looking for an alternator.

Well I guess Bonnie couldn't take the heat. She laid down on me today. loss of power then rattling in the engine. Shut her down but a bit too late. I'm guess I'm done for the season because I can't afford to rebuild my engine and Drew's too.

Sorry to hear that Tim. Ive been struggling to get mine done. I was hoping to have it built by the end of the month then have an outing (work day, get together) what ever you want to call it with the pol and grilling at the house.
Im still shooting for that. Let me know If I can help with anything.

Yeah, we got moved. But, into a smaller house with no room to keep anything here, let alone work on my cars or anybody else's for that matter. I hate it here.

Well, I think Bonnie is sold. David in Cartersville (60lowandslow on here) wants it. So, I'll be jumping on Mabeline (my 63), if I don't strike a deal on that bus in heads up.

I talked with David tonight and he already has the engine out and started tearing it down. He found the #2 rod was real loose. That explains the rattle but not the loss of power.
