I broke my truck

Well,
I was heading down to the gathering being held by Automotive Specialists this morning and overshot my turn. I pulled into a parking lot and turned the truck off to make a quick phone call. I tried to start it back up and nada. I had fuel and spark, but the motor wouldn't catch.
Long story short, I got the truck to the shop (they really weren't open but they were there) I have a sneaking suspicion that the timing belt broke. I felt a little shudder on the way down there and then nothing.
*****!
I'll find out in a couple of days whats up. What a way to start the weekend

Dave

Hmm, I must have read that post verrrry wrong. Maybe this was the Truck Gods way of letting me break down close to home instead of way up in s-burg.
There actually was something going on at the braves stadium parking lot and I assumed thats where the meet was.
If the damage to Ronin isn't too bad, I may can make the correct meeting. If it is, I may drive the interceptor

Where do you have spark at, at the coil, or at a plug?

RONIN LIVES AGAIN!
This shows me why I shouldn't be a mechanic. It turns out that the distributor shaft pin sheared, causing the no start. The shaft was also pretty much shot. Maybe that was the little shudder I felt. Anyways, a new distributor, re-timing and Ronin is running better than ever. The mechanic said I'd probably break 12 mpg now!
Guess I'll make the meet saturday after all.

I actually didn't make it this weekend, after all the stuff I went through making the attempt. I had some family things come up and took care of them instead. I may just give them a call one of these days and put the truck on the dyno then.
So how goes things in the chapter? Any logo ideas, g2g's etc. coming down the pike?
How did the pictures from the meet at D's turn out?

the pictures didn't come out too well.. I made a bonehead move and brought the Already FULL memory card for the camera... oh well..

I've been buzzing around some ideas... but I don't want to let them out prematurely.. so other than the Bronco... some storage unit shuffling and siftin' through ideas...

I've gotten to the point in which the laptop in the truck has been the prime way of communicating here and handling all other buisness.. I guess that's what they call good time management?
