I'm sure they're out there on the road or camped somewhere cool, just doing their thing.

You guys know what an autocross is? I was at one and the gf tagged along. A female driver latched on to her. She could talk the ear off a fence post but that's another story... Anyway, I mentioned there being a goat at the autox. Female driver knows old cars and asked what color. White. What color inside? Pink, I guess. Where? Over there *points* Where? Under that plywood doghouse thing.

It was the furry kind of goat instead of the metal kind of goat.

ha!!! too funny!! that would be me!! looking for the car! my dad has one identical to the above pic.. he bought it new in 69.. as far as i know he still has it.. they moved to a farm years ago.. so when he would mention a goat, the locals would ask "what do you feed it?".. his response was "sunoco ultra 94".. the farmers had puzzled looks.. of course after a few months people knew it was the shiny type instead of the fuzzy type. (are goats fuzzy?)

She had just been talking about an old Camaro or some such that she owned in the past. Some late 60s early 70s muscle car anyway so it was a perfect setup. Not sure why there was a goat at a HS.

Angora goats are furry and fuzzy.


Regular goats are fuzzy (?).

Goat milk higher in fat than cow? Higher fat = more cheese Someone catch me a whale.

Big changes! And few pictures.

Firstly, I fixed some engine leaks. Coolant was weeping from around the T444e's thermostat housing and oil was leaking from the HPOP drive gear cover.
The coolant leak was easy. While I was in there I decided to replace the thermostat as well. Nothing's ever as easy as you hope. I cross referenced thermostats and ended up with the wrong one. Dang it! Talked to the International dealer in town and they could get the correct one next day for $80. Seemed a bit steep, so I decided to test the old thermostat.




(Excuse the mess on the stove )
Thermostat checked out! Right on spec! So I cleaned things up and reinstalled it using RTV sealant.

The HPOP drive gear cover was an easy fix. It's located directly above the water pump and is sealed exclusively with RTV sealant. Here's a picture (not my own):



It was obvious that it was the leaking culprit once the plate was removed. There was some rust that made it's way under the cover so the RTV sealant was adhered to the cover. Cleaned it up, resealed it and everything is clean up front. The engine is still leaking oil around the back, though.. Haven't figured that out yet. On the one side the oil appears to be coming out the crank vent, which makes sense. The other side is a bit more curious.. The leak seems to originate from the top-rear of the right bank. Maybe a valve cover leak? It's dribbling down and coating the starter at any rate.
