Those are all pretty good ideas! This morning, I ended up going out in the rain to wash the F250. Then I spent some time with my taxidermy hobby changing buckets of soapy water, and gluing a snapping turtle skull together. Now I just got back from Wall Mart, a buddy and I went to get a few things for a fishing trip this weekend. I think I will go out and clean up in the garage some, but I don't let it get to messy, so it will not take long to organize a little.

I decided... It is only rain. So, I went out to try and fix the F250. It was easily 3 years ago that my Dad changed the distributer, and when he put the new on in he did not line up the teeth correctly.

When I put the engine to TDC and took off the distributer cap, the rotor was two cylinders ahead of cylinder 1! I set it so the rotor was where it had to be. I had to temporarily take the battery out of the '71 1614 PK, and when I turned it over the selionoid just clicked a lot. I called my uncle to see what he had to say and he said to check my grounds, which made a lot of sense... Because I only had the battery terminals set on the battery posts. Once I tightened them, it turned over. Although it turned over, the battery did not have much juice so the engine turned over slow, so slow I could not tell if I fixed the truck. I have the charger on the battery now, I will try again in the morning.

Wet outside, then I'm usually in the garage working on something, tractors, cars, whatever. I also have plenty of inside projects I need to complete....then there is GTT, CL, MTF, Youtube, Evilbay, etc.

My wife and I share a hobby,..... ok time to stop typing :smilewink:

It is a '90, I am pretty sure it is a 351, could be a 350?

Probably a 351 then. 350 is a GM.

Organizing stuff in the garage or engine rebuilding is always something good to do when the weather is bad outside.

Or trying to organize my massive collection of Manuals :D

 

You and me both...

Photography is a great indoor hobby. You just got to remember to take enough pics when the sun is shining that you will have something to work on when you are indoors!!

Very nice! Do you model a certain railroad or line?

Thanks for the comment. I model the B&O & I also have a couple of free lance engines I haven't named yet.
