Don't you love when that happens? Think of it this way, you get more done without help.

Finally got my Bonneville to run, but ran like crap, squealed, grayish smoke, and died when I let off the pedal. So I probably still have air in the lines. First time in 4 1/2 years since I've ran it last.

That may take a while to get it running good. Injectors may be all dirty.

Nah, the injectors are brand new or they were 4 years ago, but didn't put them in until last summer. Lift pump, fuel filter, glow plugs, fuel sending unit, 2 new hoses at the tank, electric fans, alternator, starter, P/* pump, water pump, oil pump, oil pump harden shaft, air filter, and true duals with dual outlets side pipes.

Oh and on my way to my father in laws from dropping the jeep off....Found a retired air force soldier who served in the persian gulf in a ditch.......He hit a patch of ice slid sideways down the ditch (10-15 ft) and into a tree..Spent about 25 mins pulling him out...Dented the rear c or d pillar w/e and broke his mirror and dented the fender.Kind of funny cause he said he picked it up from the paint shop yesterday..was on his way to his retirement party!!!!
