You may not have too, it looks like we might be bringing the mother in law up north next weekend. She wants to see the lighthouse and goosbury falls so I will be up in your neck of the woods. We will have to meet up. We will be camping around Duluth somewhere. Let me know what you think. Anyone else want to get together and camp in Duluth next weekend, Jay, Dale, Lee, Leonard. Lets go!!!!!

now i know

now I know why i was smoking so bad, i had a broken intake pushrod so that equals a dead cylinder that wasnt getting any air, also the lifter popped out of its bore so there went my oil pressure. So yeah then i have to call dealership that worked on my injector cups because i found brass shavings inside the valve covers..........

Sounding like less fun than you might have thought. Sorry for the broken pushrod. What is the "ETF" (estimated time of finish)?
