Thanks for the encouragement, guyz!
Saturday, Tommy got over to BOB, pulled out the old fuel injector pump (so I now know where THAT sits on the engine YaY!
), checked where things are supposed to line up in the old pump, set the new pump to match so everything would be timed right, and started to install the new pump. He got most of the fuel lines installed, but then both our Mothers called to ask if we were ready for lunch, so we took a break. By the time we were finished with that, he had to get ready for the evening's cart races (he's a safety official for the track).
Don't know when he's going to get a chance to finish installing the last line and put together the rest of the things that were removed so he could get to the pump. I know I can put the air filter back on, but some of the other stuff... I don't know
. I'd feel safer if he's there to supervise.
Had some major drama last week that's been occupying my time anyway. Had to take Grandma to the hospital when her blood pressure spiked (highest it reached while in the hospital was 239/117
). They were able to get it down before she had a stroke, but it was a very scary evening. Consequently, she's decided to go back home. Flies back Wednesday morning. It's a bittersweet thing, but I'd rather she be safe so I can visit another day.
This year's really suk'd
. Thank all that's Holy it's almost over!
Things WILL get better! Damnit!
