Put Drive Belt on the G.A. today (still dont know why GM put the engine mount right on a idler pulley and made it so you have to remove the mount to put on a new belt)

Because automotive engineers never work on their own cars.

Got some light snow last night so I used my future gas powered supercharger to blow it all off the driveway.

Put a carb spacer on, made a new shifter rod for the transfer case, and put new brake shoes on the rear of my truck.

Went out and started her up a couple hours ago. Its supposed to hit -20 here, its hovering about -14 now, was about -12 when I was out before at midnight. Supposed to go to work in the morning. We will see how well that happens. I don't want to go, and I'm sure she won't be anxious to move either.

Had to work a long overnight shift earlier. Went in 3pm Saturday, didn't leave until almost 9am Sunday. Was about -7 then, and I let her run for a good 20 minutes before coming home. Slept until about 7, got up, now I have to switch back around again to go in tomorrow. Ugh... since its after 2am, that plan isn't going so well. Still too wired.

Well my day completely SUCKED....


I went to grab one of my trailers... Couldn't get to it.. needed the plow... Drove home 60 miles.

Jumped into the plow truck... Frozen brakes that was fun.... NOT.

Plowed out my trailer

Came back home 120 miles round trip

Hooked on to Trailer.... Brakes completely frozen !!! but this time its a little warmer... -10f, -22f with the windchill...

climbed under the trailer with a 10lb sledge and plumbers torches.... 2 hours later it moved...

delivered trailer..

Home now... beer is flowing very well !!

So so almost 500 miles and 300 in fuel.... for a very unproductive day...
