Glad to hear you are feeling well again and able to indulge CB, gotta love the breakfast of champions!

The table top looks like what would be on my tool list for getting at your shorty, you gotta have all the right tools. You are well on your way!

It may. I've only made about $300 in like 6 weeks.
Took it down the road today. Hit 65+ on shaun's road real quick. When I get this cover fixed the bus will be a real nice driver for sure.

What transmission does she have?
My engine is 175 HP and my rear gears aren't to far away from her 6.1 and she gets 65?
Tranny and tire size please.

39 inch tires. Her OD gear is .74, its an allison 2000.
I HIGHLY doubt that her bus is doing 65 unless its downhill at redline.

If anyone wants to block/ignore someone the steps are as follows:
1. From any page in skoolie.net you can click on Quik Links (in the black bar)
2. From the drop down click on User Control Panel
3. On left side click on Edit Ignore List
4. Either type in their user name or begin typing it, the choice should come up, click on it
5. Click OK
Done

OK, so I've got a service manual. I need to dig through it, its thousands of pages.
But if anyone wants to come lend a hand one weekend, or hell even during the week- I've got nothing going on much for work or obligations.
Beer and food provided. Possibly money lol.

Don't try to read the whole freaking manual right now?
Go to the INDEX and find what you are specifically looking for.
A bowl is golden but can cloud your vision and stump your aspect of what your intentions are so either have your specific intention in front of you when you smoke or wait until you get your **** together? That's how you lose bolts nuts washers and don't know what went where? Been there? Done that? Years ago? Don't do the stupid stuff when you are mechanicking it because you are going to wake up the next morning and hunt for bolts and **** that you know were dropped somewhere..
Just my experience as a stoned and drunk mechanic?
It's been awhile and can't say I miss it but I can say I will never be where I was 20-years ago.

A magnetic tray is every mechanics best friend whether mucked up or not.

Well I'm man enough to admit when I'm wrong. I checked with my agent at State Farm today on the registration issue. State Farm will cover you whether you are registered or not, didn't care how long it isn't. They did say that they are different than a lot of companies, and will try and cover you no matter the circumstances. Others they said would not cover your claim if you were not registered. My apologies Wanderwoman, driveaway.

In the great state of PA my wifes car ( honda accord) was impounded by the police because we forgot to re-register it. To be complete it was also two weeks out of inspection. My wife was teaching at Bucknell Uni and drove back at 5 Pm in winter time. She had to be back to breast feed our 6 month old baby. They impounded the car and towed it back to Lewisburg. I talked with the officer about the baby and time delay and as usual they do not give a sh.t. From the police station she walked back to the Uni and registered online. Then back to the police station. $ 200 fine.. $ 200 impound lot .

Thank you for your "serve and protect" promise.
It is 5 years ago , I can still get angry about it.

Actually did something like that 20-yr ago.
Still pisses me off?

start takin out the bolts.. rent the correct balancer puller for that monster.. pull the bonnet, and hoist the radiator / CAC out of there as a unit and now you can really see what you asre looking at! you will gai a whole n ew perspective once you get the bonnet and the radiator out of there..

super cool that it goes 65!!!.. I think when you drove me around in it was before we turned off the speed limiters..

Sounds like a lot of judgement. You should come meet me. I'm the most obsessive, organized person when I'm working on stuff.
The CD manual isn't exactly "indexed" so well so I'm having to go through a lot of pages.
