After 3 weeks of the car sitting I removed the ECU and opened it up, the circuit board had 2 burned sections on it... Hmmm... $350 for a new ECU, I had to have it Remaned... He still said I don't think thats the problem... I nstalled the new ECU and had him come out there withh me... Right after I installed the ECU I told him to fire it up... Guess what... It fired right up and ran good... Been about 4 years and that very car still runs... But dad died over a year ago... These are some of the good memories... We always had a good verbal match.... I miss it...
Oh man, I forgot that he died. Always treasure the good memories.

My plug wire incident wasn't one of my better ones I have to say. I'm sure changing this belt will be much better.

Got it dry and got a big bandaid really really tight, and I went back to work... Thats the way to go ain't it...I still have weird sensations in my finger...lol I still love cars, and still grind and gash fingers and knuckles...
My finger still feels weird after I sliced the tip off. Hasn't healed completely yet. It looks funny too.

My hand still has some numbness too.......but that wasn't car-related I do have a few new gashes from the weekend, though.

How many beers did you have? LOL

I'll probably do my belt Saturday. The links next week. Hopefully I won't re-open this finger.
