    got started and the sky opened up , this is not helping if the rain stops long enough to torque the heads and intake I should be able to do most of the rest while kims at work tomorrow and have her ready to fire and tune when he gets home .

    fired her up , she puked smoke and dumped tranny fluid all over the drive , she seemed to run good and with some tuning most of the smoke stopped , but the trans issue is a broken line that won't be fixable till sometime tomorrow at the earliest and the only way I could make it if I left tomorrow night would be to push it a lot harder than is wise at this point soooooo with a heavy heart I have to say I will not make it to Moparfest this year . Please raise a glass on my behalf and inform Pat etal that this years longest driver will be someone else then send me lots of pics .

    Chris...What's the trans line problem?...is it split or broken completely...snapped off? Could you not use some rubber fuel line and some hose clamps?

    they have some day trips set up for the wives / car widows that leave the grounds and come back in the afternoon ,you might want to get her on one of the buses it's cheap and go to some sort of crafty village or something .

    yeah she split but thats not the sort of repair you do for a 2000 mile trip heck thats not even good enough for the 1000 miles to home , we'll fix it proper tomorrow night and put some test miles on her thursday to gauge whether or not it will make it back to Victoria or go home on the train again

    Got the Dart all waxed up last night in the anticipation of the drive back to Canada Friday night. I will be bringing backs lots of cheaper US beverages for our consumption enjoyment. See you all at the FABO Club area. :)
