Everything looks better in the morning light. Your head will be clearer, alright, maybe not clearer after a few Cuba Libres... but you'll get 'er done. Be patient...almost there.

Some days it seems everything you touch turns to dog crap, other days it's the Midas touch and you are MacGyver.

Who the hell oar they, and what makes them arbiters if what's funny? Seems folx swallow that hook, line, & sinker.
Being a trout-sider, I'm glad to have more company in the abyss! Pull up a perch, chum.

ba-dump-bum

Tango- you need a set of crowsfeet flare wrenches. Great for hard to reach hydraulic fittings.

Oh thanks Guido...NOW you tell me. (I always wondered what them funny lookin doohickies were for)

OK...the remote plate is fitted (along with $50 bucks worth of new gaskets)...went through half a small bottle of Gasket Shellac (really nasty stuff I'd never heard of before)...and...managed to get a 1" wrench in to tighten up that one, loose fitting! Got plenty of bruises and lost a fair amount of blood in the process but at least that part is done.

Got the other end of the hoses hooked up today and realized I will almost certainly have to modify my plan for the doghouse due to where the hoses fall. Went immediately to the sheetmetal shop I dropped the doghouse plans off to nearly four months ago and they said... "we're ready to start on it tomorrow" (ya, right).

I can't decide whether to count my blessings...or stay pi$$ed off at how long the #@!$%# plans have been just sitting there!

Either way...



ONWARD!

PS:Pix will have to follow later. Gotta go watch the Houston Astros in the World Series...and drink a little more rum while I'm at it.

Astros beat the boys from LaLa Land tonight! They lead the series 2-1 with two more home games coming up. Go 'Stros! Win it at Home!

But seriously folks...it was nice just to not be bleeding for a short while. Here is the snakes nest that has had me in a bad mood for the last several days...


It's tight down there. And this is after removing the alternator which I foolishly tried working around for the first day or so.

Remarkably, nothing is hitting anything else. I added a little extra buffer to the lines with a piece of garden hose...just in case.



ONWARD!

Looks Excellent !

I like the flow arrows. I am always writing on engine parts with a Sharpie to assist me. It's part of a much larger system I call " Idiot Proofing ".
