I'd love to have that kind of space to work on the GT's! That's why I'm envious! I can't even get one under cover right now!

 

Wish I could help you build a shop for you to work in Kenny, I really do.

I just need to clear out some stuff so I can move inside. I have so much that we kept around for the work we (Terry & I) were doing. If I clear some of that out, I can open space to be under roof at least!

The cow can't get up again today.  Front legs are fine, but she has no strength at all in the back legs.  I have a bad feeling she won't pull out of this.  It may be my day off from work, but the stress follows me whenever/wherever.

Gonna go eat lunch at Long John's, cruise TSC, then come on home I guess.  I can't get motivated today to do much, but then again this pinched nerve has me dragging from not sleeping well.  Maybe nothing is what I need to do.

Sometimes sitting around with Your Feet up and relaxing is what the doctor ordered!

A trip through tractor supply is always a good time.

Just got back home.  Had some fish & chips, did the TSC tour, bringing Dad home a new well pressure tank.  Then toured Peddler's Mall.  Bought 2 solid rubber tires for plow gauge wheels for my own plows.  Let Teresa shop a  couple stores, then came on home.  Pretty day, and it was supposed to be raining.

Oh, and may have the Jeep running fine.  At least the last 4 or 5 trips have been problem free, and it seems to even run smoother & shifts better as well.  When I got into the ECM the other day, I didn't do anything, as the ohm meter showed all paths were good & none broken.  All I did was put the 2 parts together, again adding dielectric grease.  But many reported they thought the 2 retaining screws were causing a short down inside the computer.  The last time I looked inside the ECM, I added washers to pull the screws back, as everyone said they needed to be just a couple mm shorter.  But this time I misplaced the screws, and rather than spend time looking for them, I just left them out & put a dab of silicone over the holes.  The outer tin body has bend tabs that hold everything in place anyway.  She has ran like new ever since, and every trip out the prior few weeks were a pain with bucks, and sometimes engine dying completely.  I have noticed when on cruise control, hills that would actually pull her down into passing gear to keep the speed up, now the very same hills just kick it out of overdrive to retain the set speed!  The trans would also sometimes want to kick up & down a gear at certain low speeds, and now all is much smoother.  At least I can relax a bit about the Jeep, and if it acts up again, I won't hesitate to buy a new ECM.

Funny how something so simple ca be the cause of a big problem.
