    Hey Dudes/Dudettes!


    I'm sure I'll get an earful (forumful) of posts about why I should keep this beast, but sadly I'm in a season that is requiring me to sell my van. Couldn't thank you guys...

    Not the timing cover

    Edoz was right. Totally wasn't leaking out of the timing cover. So I tightened the passenger side of the water pump...too much. I broke one of the bolts! :(

    Okay, when I had the freeze plugs out, I did notice that it had a ton of sediment, rusty gravel, bull crap in the bottom of the block, so I flushed it out as best I could through the freeze plug...

    Thanks Dudes!

    While it wasn't as easy as the 3 minute video above, I got them replaced today with relative ease! I'm stoked to have saved $500 and I learned a little something at the same time.

    THANKS A TON!...

    Maybe the mechanic made it sound more difficult that it is. I can get intimidated easily with mechanical stuff since this is the first vehicle I've really worked on by myself. That's why you guys get...

    The owner before me did put a HEI in it which is great. I had another guy recommend a GM single wire alternator. Thoughts on this?

    Just use relays…?

    So if I was going to just run my basics, could I just run a different relay per item? If so, should the relay sizes vary per item, or could I get just a handful of 30amps…?

    I guess it just depends on what you're trying to get out of your van overall. I'm sure there are some puritans that would say to never use spray paint, but in my case it works.

    I'd say go for it,...

    It's all paint. Straight out of the rattle can! Actually, the whole van is spray painted, even the bumpers and base green coat.

    Small world!

    My dad has been in a little office complex about a three blocks east (425 W. Wilshire) of that address for about 30 years! I'm sure I'll be out that way soon and I'll swing by.
