Yeah I was on the freeway headed to another one of my boys baseball games although Montana's freeway speed limit used to be "reasonable and prudent" whatever the hell that meant?? Lol. Everyone just went as fast as their vehicle could go, since then they dropped it down to 75 and highways are 70 so we still rip down our Backcountry roads like morons lol

You weren't able to reuse your factory check light? I wired my PCM output straight to the jeep CIL/MIL and it seems to work perfectly.

Yea the po had hacked everything up under the dash and it was juet easier to run a new wire. One of these days I will tear the dash apart and try to figure out what the po was doing. At least I know my stuff is done correctly.

Valve covers decided to puke oil so I'm re-doing them again if I can't get these damn old school covers to seal up on these magnum heads I will go back to the stock ones but I figured I'd give them one more shot with some rubber gaskets and right stuff.

Well got th valve cover leak fixed but now it is throwing a code 47 alternator voltage low. If its not one thing its another lol! Damn check book needs to recover for a few weeks before another parts goes kaput. And we made an offer on our dream home and they accepted it so now we are packing and saving for the unexpected expenses.

Awesome news on the house. Moving sucks, but when you are moving to the right place it makes it worth it.

Yeah its hard not to get excited since ours still has to sell for it to work. Technically its my wifes dream house since the garage is only your basic two car but in two years I plan to add a third stall and some sqft to it so I'd say I will be mine someday.

Hey, I remember you saying you where going to buy a manual Crankshaft Position Sensor, that you where having problems with it stalling. I was having the same problem, but I was convinced it was because my pcm was not tuned for the manual trans. I was wondering if it did fix your problem. I think i'm going to buy one, that said is your manual sensor shorter then the automatic sensor? Or did you still have to shim it.

Yes I did get a manual one from a" '93 dodge truck" mine had to be from a 93 cause every 94 I ordered, it was the same as the automatic sensor. And yes it fixed my problem the manual is shorter and the automatic is not offset like the manual one is and so its not pointed correctly at the sensor ring. Plus the flexplate bolts were slightly longer and stuck out a little and would rub on the sensor as it would flex and cause it to ground out the sensor that is why it never threw a code cause it wasnt bad it was just rubbing. I assume the same is happening to yours that is why it works most of the time.

Well looks as if my alternator is good I just blew a fuse. I was going to take the alternator in tomorrow to test it but figured I better check the fuses in the pdc and one looked good but a ohms test proved otherwise I must of blown it when I was putting on the new valve cover gaskets when I accidentally touched my screw driver to it. Let this be a lesson to you boys and girls always, always disconnect the battery when working under the hood.

Yeah I just picked up another fuse and charged my battery last night so we shall see.
Thanks Man I really hope it works out with the house also. The new house has everything we want but a bigger garage which I'm pretty bummed about, but the view, the kitchen, the central air and sprinkler system along with the extra acreage is making me not think so much about the garage being as big as my current garage is. Lol. This house hunting is getting old and cleaning the house every night and before work so realtors can show our house is getting old. My dog sure thinks he's special now, he's been coming to work with me almost everyday so he doesn't take a chunk out of some potential buyer. We've got at least three clients itching to make an offer on our place so I assume anyday now we will get an offer.

That's great man! I've seen houses around here sit for sale for a few years. I got lucky with mine, roof mounted swamp cooler with vents in each room, boiler with in floor heat (slab), built in 2000 but no garage...
I'm on a big lot so the girlfriend and i have been talking about refinancing in a few years to build a small shop.

Yes thats the best way to add equity to your home square footage! ! Ive been spoiled the last 6 years I built a huge garage and now I have to settle for a standard two car I shouldnt be such a winer lol. In about two years once all our kids are in school (daycare is expensive) we plan to add another bedroom and a third stall to the garage so I can be patient for a few years.
