Finally I got some sleep.
I was in bed at 8pm last night. I didn't wake up till 6 this morning when Steph left for work. I went back to sleep till 8.
When I got up I had brown stuff all over my leg and all over the sheets. At first I thought I may have had an accident while unconscious. A closer inspection revealed it was a piece of Toblerone. Steph must have had a snack during the night and left me a piece.
One I was de-chocolateified .
Then Heath and I had PB&J and watched speed racer. Since it was 28 degrees I was in no big hurry to run outside.
While I was drinking my coffee a guy pulled in wanting a truck tool box. He had to wait for me to get dressed. Then we went out and found him one. I came back inside where it was warm.
When it warmed up to 36 we went outside. It felt much warmer than that.
I lit the burn barrel and then turned my attention to Spooky.
I started pouring oil into the engine. IT was thick as molasses since it was cold. I wound up filling the funnel and walking away.
I bought a right angle drill to prime the oil. The old distributor shaft would not go in the chuck. SO I fired up the redneck lathe.
Soon I had it fitting.
I primed the engine and then grabbed attempted to find top dead center. Once I had that I grabbed the distributor.
The gasket was nowhere to be found. After an exhaustive search I gave up and texted Steph to get one.
I turned Gunner loose and let him run a bit. Heath had been all over the yard. Every time I couldn't hear him I came out of the tent and investigated. I am always amazed at where he can get in a short time.
