Well Skips truck was ALMOST running. Mechanic called, said he drove it to 85mph and it ran fine. Skip swung by there to test drive it. Same old crap. So he picked up the mechanic and showed him. Mechanic was like it didn't do that, maybe its your spark plugs? Then he asked Skip if when he changed the distributor was it a five or three wire. Skip said he didn't change the original one so he didn't know. Later on in the day, LIGHTBULB. When he put the engine back in and connected it to the tranny there was a plug with five wires that hadn't been connected. So he reconnected it. Its for the timing and the torque converter and unplugging it bipased it and when he plugged it back in it unbipased it. So mechanic is going to see if unplugging it is going to fix it, which we believe it will. So here is to hoping.

I know. I was half asleep when I wrote it and didn't know how else to put it. I'll add it to websters tonight so it'll be legit.

Well in 1984 BFT News:

Skip had three bad spark plugs on the truck, mechanic changed those out. He also unplugged that set of wires from the tranny. Something about he didn't think his timing gun was timing the engine right either because of the harmonic balancer so he was going tune it by ear.

1984 BFT UPDATE

finally....

They figured out what was wrong with skips truck... It was the carburetor. Well we should have known! We keep thinking it had to be a fuel problem. I think that 600 wasn't big enough for the engine. Mechanic is going to get Skip one for FREE (love that amount) and have it on on Monday!
that is if nothing else goes wrong...

BWAHAHA. Ummm no. Daisy Mae is gonna just have to drive. They want to put a 650 carb on it, with the cam and everything else... I'm betting we will go from getting 8 miles to the gallon to about 5 or 6. We wouldnt make it to the next gas station in West Texas!

Are you and Skip bringing two cars or just Daisy Mae?
