    Why am I always trying to figure shit out? My life is filled with things that have to be fixed.

    It's a good thing I can figure shit out.

    Technology has gotten us so far but most people don't know how shit works. So when shit stops working, they have to call someone.

    My Achilles heel are cars. I do not work on cars.

    Most people can't work on cars anymore. They aren't like the old days before computerized systems and pollution control. I had two engines that were perfect to work on. I had a smallblock 350 and a 302.

    Of course I had a lot of practice working on the 302 right schmoopy. :hhh:

    Yep , Back in the day you could slap a fuel pump on for 10 or so bucks , Just recently i had a fuel pump put on my 2003 impala and it cost me $800.00 because it's in the fuel tank.

    one time, my laptop broke down and i didn't know why, tried some stuff, then sent it to a computer expert

    two weeks later he finally brought it back fixed. apparently there was a piece of paper stuck between the power button and the connection. :facepalm:

    Back in 88 the neighbor girl asked me if I could change a thermostat on a car. I told her yeah, it will take 5 minutes. I got the new one and I ended up having to take the whole crossfire injection system off to get to it. It took a torx that I didn't have at the time and I had to buy a new gasket for that, find out how much torque it took because it was aluminum.

    The whole fiasco took hours and I don't know what she thought. Needless to say I wasn't invited in for a drink.

    We sound old.

    Not to long ago my son bought a 383 Chevy engine that we put in his Regal , we just did the basic connections from car to motor , We had the wire harness to the distributor , The wire cluster to the starter and a pos/neg wire to the Holley , And the Pos/Neg from the battery and stripped it down to about 10 wires connected to the motor.

    And yes i feel Old :facepalm:
