Made 4 cups of Death Wish to prepare me for inspecting a car in this freezing cold. Called the seller to make sure it worked for him, and the car was sold! Now I am bundled up for no reason. :bored:

Good news, I figured out where my Long Johns were.

4 cups yesterday morning, 2 before church and 2 during. When I got home I decided to move some cars around. I brought the air tanks from work to air up the tires on my Vue. It has been sitting since Halloween when I hit that deer. I have my sons Cad sitting in the driveway, battery was weak and I had to jump it. I wanted to move the daughter in laws old Freestyle to put the Vue where it's parked, I had to jump it also. The battery was stone dead. Tried to run my air compressor and I couldn't get it warm enough and it keep tripping the breaker. My snowplow truck developed a misfire suddenly. I was fed up with everything at this point. I moved the 2 cars and went inside. But I did see the Buc's win the Super Bowl later

When it rains it pours. Sounds like my fleet. "I'll just fire this one up and move it." Rrrrr, rrr, click. At least I have multiple batteries, one has to be good! :smuggrin:

Had three cups of Dunkin, and I must have put more grounds in than I thought. I was a little jittery taking more parts off the dash. Didn't help while I was trying to be patient and careful!

Started with 2 cups this morning, picked up a dist cap on the way to the shop and changed it out before I started work. Misfire is gone.

It must have burnt through somewhere in this area. I couldn't see it, but #2 and 8 had misfires and they are running next to each other in that area.

The Dunkin was fine today, gave me the right amount of energy to finish going through the Hot Wheels I'll be selling. Time to get rid of stuff I never touch.

Started with a cup this morning, picked up my kid to help me pick up a bed for some friends, stopped at Mcdonalds and got a coffee, dropped off the bed, filled the truck and got my freebie coffee with a fill up, came home and did some work on this.....

I drained the fuel tank and found this.....

Full of water, pulled the carbs to clean and soaked the choke on the one with break away. It is stuck and the cable is broke, I have a new cable for it

Pile O carbs...

This is the cause of the issue, the fuel cap had a level gauge and now it's gone and piled up it the tank leaving a hole for water to get into the tank.

I ordered up one of these...

I just got this sled this spring, I sold a 73 Arctic Cat 440 Panther to a guy and he traded this to me for a 77 Ski Doo TnT 440 Free Air that I had. I think I got the better deal

That looks like the ZR I crunched into a tree, it was red-ish. After they got it fixed (it wasn't mine) their daughter did the same thing, but into the gas pump island!

Figured I'd get some coffee made early, you know, noon. :happy: Perfect for watching an interview with W Bush on 9/11 before I watch some NASCAR, which I haven't done in years. I liked watching the crashes in qualifying, and the truck series, I hope there's some good ones in the 500.

More Death Wish was in store today, some when I woke up this afternoon, and I just made some a half hour ago, nothing like some coffee around 9pm. The Death Wish has a nice bold flavor, I really do enjoy it. I got some cleaning done while it was brewing, now it's time to watch some recorded shows! Can't wait for warmer weather so I can work on cars again.

1 cups to start, went through Mc'Ds, got some rec 90 fuel, came back home and started my heater in the shed and went to work on my sled. Got the carbs back on, choke cables installed, seat back on, blew out the fuel lines and fuel pump, filled the tank and tried starting it. It took a little bit because of the water loaded fuel that was in it. Finally running, changed the plugs and we took it out of the shed. Ripped it some and shredded the old belt.

My new fuel cap came yesterday also

I got 2 short videos of my youngest on it.

I sent the kid after a new belt yesterday, we got it on and that's when I shot those short videos. Man is it quick, a lot faster then my old sleds.
