I know what you mean about the old car smell. My Cutlass smells like an old car. Even the exhaust has an odor too it. Probably from the lack of a catalytic converter.

Lets see, I spent all day pulling my engine, pull a part here and there, put it on new engine. Set aside, pull transmission, swear at the fact I broke a cooler line. Swear about where they put those 3 bolts on the back side. Swear about this, that and everything else about how those trannies are mounted. I SHOULD have been done by now. But I'm NOT! Grrrrrr.

spent all day yesterday replacing my FPR on the yukon, i figured i might as well replace the intake manifold gaskets while there. the 96-99 vortec engines are common for those. mine were bad, got everything cleaned and put back together and the new fpr is bad worse than the one i took out. so now since this is the worst intake manifold design ever i get to spend a few more hours taking the upper man back apart and taking it back to advance to get a different one.

this morning im going out to the shop to get my saw cleaned up and take the atv out, to clear club trails, hopefully be done for the race.
