Well i picked up about 30 sheets of 1/2 inch press board from homo depot for my dad, then picked up an 80 gallon 5hp (yes its a real 5 horse) air compressor. This was for a friend, not mine unfortunately. After that my buddy called me and I pulled my trailer over to pick his dads van. The torque converter bolts sheared and one jammed behind the flex plate. So thats "locked up for now." Pulled that to my buddies house, unloaded drove home unhooked the trailer and now im sitting here telling the story of my day. Oh and all this was done on less then 1/2 a tank. This is usually a pretty typical Saturday for me. And did i mention im 16. I think ill save the muddin till tomorrow.

I don't know the brand, it was an old industrial compressor. I dont remember where it came from ill have to ask. My friends dad has had it for a few years now, and their 40 gallon went to pot so now it's time for the big guns. They have to run a separate 220 line to run it, It is a 2 stage and it's heavy as heck. And Fulton is across the river from Clinton, IA and about 40 minutes north of Davenport, Moline (the quad cities.) Well 30 minutes when I drive it.

Filled my '96 up this morning, cost me 90 bucks, but that should last me through May in that truck. It doesn't get driven much. Then washed her up.
Bought a filter kit and 15 quarts of Mercon V for my '95, That was 80 bucks. Then did a full filter and fluid change. Got a face full dirty ATF as the pan tipped down while I was gunning the bolt out. Found a mystery part in the tranny pan, that turned out to be a normal find for a first time pan drop. All is good now. Tranny seems better but time will tell.

Hmmm...

Today I went through and re-gapped and put in the spark plugs that I put in yesterday, thought I was dragging a cylinder when I was driving today. Diagnosed what was causing it to start up, get up to approx. 900-1000 rpm then drop down to like 500-550 rpm and idle there, I need to take out and clean / replace the IAC. (I would hate to waste the autozone giftcards I got for my birthday on that though, hopefully cleaning will fix the problem) That sounds like a project for tomorrow.

God, it sucks / rules to be sick, it sucks because I'm miserable with a sinus infection, but rules because I'm missing school and able to work on my truck.
