A sad day in Volvolandia

Post by Redwood Chair on Tue Aug 05, 2008 11:40 pm

I must move on and decomission the 72-145 'Seafoam'.
It is running super rich,and I finally figured out that the wires/connector to the temp sensor in the head for the water jacket are frayed,but now it has washed the cylinders and ruined the rings.
Compression is @100 across the board. bom
72 had crappy primer too,and the rust blossoms are started. What a Face
Fixed the leads,and took it for a spin today 3700 lbs of noisy fun.
Strange,kind of peppy,even mortally wounded. affraid
So yea we made some Money,and hauled some lumber.

It could hop over to my place and get some rust grindage/bondo/black primer action followed up with some severely cut springs and some tint. That would scare the old farts here.
