He's just adding to his 'stash'!

I sometimes think he is building something.

He's working on building a GT from scratch. One piece at a time.

Then I went back to Harbor Freight to see if they had some socket trays like I wanted. They didn't. But I did run into a friend. We chatted a bit and then I went over to TSC. They didn't have one either, but I grabbed a small tool box to put the impact sockets in.

 

Not sure what style you were after, but I prefer the single row metal ones with the flip handle/cover. I glue a magnetic strip on the bottom to make double sure they stay exactly where I set them. Wherever that was the last time I used them, I can't remember.

Cat that is exactly what I am looking for. Can't seem to find any. Might be time to hit some pawn shops.

I find a lot of neat stuff at the pawn shops. This computer is one of them. Good luck there. You may want to get 2 so Heath has one to keep his things in!

:ditto:  My son was 3 before he started to talk. Then came all the questions that he had been saving. :biting_nails:

 

Little girl started talking around the normal time and she hasn't shut up since.  I don't think she can go 10 seconds without saying something, she even mumbles in her sleep!

Ok so let all the Chevy jokes begin.

 

Today we all rested up a bit from yesterdays madness. Even Heath slept in a bit.

 

 

When we finally all got moving Steph ran down to Shelby to get the money for the car we took yesterday.

When she got back we went outside to see if we could get the BLueOx to behave.

 

First I checked all the bolts on the intake manifold. The were tight.

 

I pulled the codes and they are the same ones that it was throwing when the intake was loose last time.

 

Then we pulled the spark plugs they were a bit fouled so new plugs, distributor cap and rotor button went in along with a new fuel filter.

 

It still has a dead miss under hard acceleration at 2000 rpm.

 

I spent some time pouring over wiring diagrams and I cannot find a common point of failure for the codes. Oh well tomorrow is another day.

Hmmm, with those symptoms it has to be that Common point of failure is the Bowtie.

Hmmm.....my FORD F250 HD never has problems like that.  Pulled over 8,500lbs today & never missed a beat rolling along at 65mph.  But hey, they all mess up sooner or later.  Chevies just do it sooner!   :smilewink:

Yeah, me too.  Hope you find it soon.  It took most of a year for me to get my Cherokee in line.

I see two people to ad to my hit list. LOL

 

 

I am sure it is something simple. After the wreck back in 2000 my diagnostic abilities are messed up. I almost have had to relearn it all over again. I have never been good with electrical problems though. I hate them.

From what I've seen, quiet children are heavy thinkers.  They spend their time putting the pieces of the puzzles of their lives together in their heads.  Then when THEY are good & ready, all they've figured out comes spilling out.  Yep, it can be a lot of info sometimes too!   :rolling:
