Yep. I used the wedding excuse last year, but this year is more important! That still doesn't excuse me from being lame though.

Back on topic! Have a great time on Saturday, everyone.

travis...

i used a vice.... did it the same way i compressed mistu tensioners when i did t-belts on them when working there.....

i'm 90% sure it is the rod bearings.....the noise got excessively worse today after the car sat in the sun while i was at work all day.... i'm guessing the oil thinned out a lot and made the bearings sound worse..after dropping the pan this afternoon and finding my oillike ware and the bearing caps feeling extremely loose i'm getting the bearing tomorrow and we'll try that..... i've done the screwdriver and listen thing.... the noise was insane when ove the VC's... non-existent when around the timing belt....

if this doesn't fix it... i'm just going to get the TB tensioner, and if that doesn't do it, say screw it, but another engine with less than 160K and put all this new shit on it...

i hope the bearings fix it so i can bring it out this weekend :-/.

my car is here, still driving it.
i need a new vaf to TB elbow, the stock rubber elbow just completely tore off, so it runs like poo. hahaha. lame.

so if anyone has a metal elbow or a stock one they'd give up, i'd much appreciate it.

as far as selling it, yea, i still am. no one has shown interest, so no big deal.
i may part it out before selling as a whole tho (cuz of the engine and tranny). i'm still deciding. and it's also depending on if i get approved for a loan for the replacement car.

meghan, yea that's fine. many people are handing me money when they arrive.

ben

JP it's up to you when you want to come, etc. i suggest coming tomorrow (friday) and staying over, that way you wouldn't have to drive so early to help out. but it's up to you, if you want to come tomorrow or early saturday.
same goes for you meghan...if you'd rather come tomorrow nite, and not have to drive early morning saturday, you can stay also.

let me know.

the only thing is, i'm going for the 2nd part of my moto license from 6-8pm. so, we'll figure that out.

ben

hahah, well, considering i live a half hour away from you, tops, i don't think i'll be needing to sleep over. But grocery shopping might be fun, as stupid as that sounds, and as little as i'd be able to fit in my car, lol.

Everything still looks great to show up tomorrow on time.

Amber may be along, she is scheduled to work tho, so I'm not 100% sure.

Still not B6T and still no wheels, so the Pimptiva will be stripped down to nothing.

I'll hand cash at the meet if that's fine Ben. (PayPaling today would be pointless)
