Thanks for the extra prayer.
I'll have to snap some pics as I install the AC bypass pulley this weekend. Wait until then.
Was talking to 96BonnevilleL67, after Basic Machining class tonight while I was still in Alexandria, having a litte fun with the boost. Did a quick (yes, quick, but not 8-Ball fast) 20-70 run so Dan could hear it, and had to slow for a red light coming up. Stopped at the light, gave it 1/2 throttle to get to the next intersection, where I expected to turn left onto I-94 to head back to Sauk Centre. But when I came to a stop for the light at the I-94 entrance, I noticed the engine kind of stumbled, and I noticed, at the same time, in my rear view mirror that smoke was starting to billow out. So I crossed the 2 lanes and the intersection to the gas station there. As I coasted into the parking lot of the gas station the car completely stalled out.
I ended up being stuck there with a disabled car, no light to look under the hood (clerk at gas station told me to buy a flashlight (so I told him I'd rather pay my brother to come from Sauk Centre with his truck and the tow dolley he rented today (lucky for me).
So called my brother, and made a reminder on my phone for me to put a flashlight in the car tomorrow.
When my brother got there I used his flashlight to find the coolant was leaking from between the SC and the TB spacer.
So tomorrow morning I am going to drain the oil, pull the plugs, remove the TB spacer, clean the plugs and regap them to .053 (from the stock .060 on the original 38k old Iridiums), crank the engine over to get rid of Prestone in the cylinders.
After that I'll be making a little tribute video to the TB spacer, utilizing a good dose of gasoline and a flame.
