And Eric, if nothing else we could always drive out and pick up Lisa's Jeep and drive it back, don't necessarily have to tow it. And I agree, keep it registered if you can, much easier unless she's going to be out of commission for more than six months
Its going to be sitting basicly, she cant drive it because shes leaving it back here. Not sure what to do.

How long is she going to be gone? Even if it is going to be a long term thing the thing is going to be started and moved around. Can't leave it sitting for more than a few weeks. Also, I believe that you have to get it smogged again after having it registered as non-op.

As I mentioned before, keep it registered. Here's why.

Cars need to be driven once in a while or the tires and other rubber parts dry out.

The gas goes stale.

The battery will go dead and not be able to hold a charge

If Lisa comes back for a visit or christmas break she can drive it.

The biggest and I have personal experience with this. My old S-10 truck was parked in the driveway as non-op and I had the paperwork on the dash. Still, some idiot put a ticket on it twice for not having current reg and I had to go down and get that fixed.

Not only that, but many cities have a vehicle abatement program. Had a truck in my driveway with a non-op. Totally legal, right? Well, the cops say yes, but my city said no. Fix it or get rid of it. Dunno if you have a garage or if your city has this kind of program, but it seems to be a lot more trouble than it's worth.

The rod bearings and gasket kit are here. I pretty much plan on following the FSM on assembling the engine. One thing I've noticed is that the distributor doesn't fit smoothly into the hole in the block. I remember this happening to someone else when they replaced their distributor. I think Steve filed something down? This ring a bell with anyone?

Also, I doubt I am going to have this thing ready to drop in by Saturday so I am going to plan on doing it the next weekend (12th, 13th, 14th). If by chance I am ready this weekend I'll start blowing up some phones and call in the cavalry!

Yeah, we had to use some emery cloth and smooth out a distributor shaft on Josh's friend's Jeep and then it snugged right in.

We're doing a run the weekend of the 12-14th if you want to come out then. This Saturday we'll be out at Corral Canyon for a trail cleanup and may run around the trails out there afterwards, depends on the weather

Steve, what up with the trail cleanup? First I heard of it was a mention you made yesterday. I have a prior commitment for most of this saturday but I am free on sunday.

Jason, next, next weekend we have been planning an overnighter. Maybe we can get some of the work done during the week or if you need the help I don't mind taking a pass on the trip. I was invited to a party for a good friend on 9/13 and said I could not make it but I could stay home and help you and go to that.

I wonder if it makes sense to put the bottom of the engine together and drop it in. The top can be done while it's in place and the transmission jack makes putting that in afterward easy.

Working on my truck brakes and axle seal tonight. Everything is in great shape, aside from being oil soaked. But jeeeez are those hubs heavy. I spent about 20 minutes with brake cleaner and rags until I remembered that I have a power washer.

Only about $70 for new brake shoes and seals. The wheel cylinders have no sign of leaking so I guess I can leave them alone. NAPA did not have them anyway.

Jason, I'll put the bolt in my car. Unless you want me to leave it outside here at the house.

I don't want you to move around your plans for me thats for sure. If you happen to hang around that weekend thats different but don't change things around for me. I plan on doing all the prep work during the week.

As far as the engine install goes, I was planning on mating the engine/trans/TC together and dropping them in together the same way we pulled it. Do you think it would be easier to add the trans/TC after the block is lowered in? I was also planning on leaving the head and manifolds off until it was dropped in. Less stuff to get snagged and it can be installed very easily after the block is in place.

much easier to mount the trans and put it all in together. I was just thinking to get in in there faster and sooner.

lunch is good, have to be today though. It's already thursday.
