Thanks Tango! Thank you for YOUR service as well!

Cowlitz-- That was it then. We drove straight on down the I-5. Wasn't sure if it was Oregon or Washington.

I seem to be keeping coolant just fine. Only lost coolant when I stopped and the fan did as well and coolant puked out on that pass. BUT that cap was also OFF haha. I am VERY mindful of that coolant and temp now ha. I knew beforehand to watch it but dang.

I would LOVE to make up a recovery system for it though just in case!

On a note of the fan belts, I question if they are a bit tight. Not really sure how loose or tight they should be. Hrrmph.

Trying to get emissions to get her registered is becoming a pain though.

All registered as an Arizona MH. My 1974 year called for no more than 55% opacity for emissions and she blew an 11.5%. I knew she was a non smoker but damn. Nice. Very nice indeed.
