    92F89A79-DF00-46C1-AE99-ED2EAA3469ACClose.  Spent the afternoon replacing axle boots and trans main seal.  Got the engine on the jack and almost got one manifold/carb pulled so I can shoehorn it in.  Been under the weather last week with shingles so I’m still not 100%.

    I can’t wait either.  Hoped to be further along but the old trans seal took way too long to get out.  Got it handled but then started to get annoyed pulling tin and intake/carb and figured it was probably best to take a break from it before I break something.

    Or pay one of your really good friends tens of dollars to come over and motivate you. Engine installs wait for no adult chicken pox!

    I hope it’s driving by this weekend.  Today is going to be a long day, but Tuesday evening is looking good to do work.  Germanaire in November is more likely.

    Hey Scott….talking about events and not wishing to highjack Pete’s thread…..

    I was fortunate last night to see a great young Charleston duo ,Sally and George,at a local gig here in Perth.They are currently touring Australia.

    George [Joel Timmons ] was telling me after the show that he knows of you …and obviously Plane Jane through your local music scene.

    He thinks you may have played in a band with his sister.

    He also played with the Sol Driven Train for some years.

    Small world !!!

    back to Pete’s  Ghia………….

    Small world.  I’m not familiar with the Sally and George duo but Sol Driven Train has been around town for years and put on great live shows.

    The Ghia….I’ve been trying my best to disassemble as little as possible to get this engine in, with no luck, so tonight I’m pulling the shroud (as well as one of the intakes) to get it done.  I envy you bus folks with the removable aprons.

    Like putting a square peg in a round hole. I can feel your pain.

    I'm at the age where "fuck off", "fuck you", and "fuck it" answer most questions.
