Yea, the elbow definitly wasn't 90 degrees anymore, not sure why its not sitting right, but maybe since now the tensioner is stationary and I added the LIM on it will seat better? I played with it to get it lined up as best I could so only time will tell.

She jumped right under the car and started helping (I don't usually use a creeper). I grabbed her one after snapping that shot, then a hair tie after untangling her hair from the wheel. = P

Ill have to take a look at the PCV, what would I need to check to see if that'* the cause?

Not sure, I thought the PCV went threw there. Oil shouldn't really be able to come up threw the threads of the bolts. It'* not under pressure on the top of the heads. I could see maybe a little wicking, but then why not drain back down.

Got all moved into the new shop this weekend. Plenty of insulation, outlets everywhere, water, gas and electric heat.




My first project was to mount some headlights on the new mower.




Next project was to get the SSEi out of it'* barn resting place that it'* been for 6 months and into the shop.


Then decided to take a look at the HVAC and figure out why it was making so much noise.



I think I found the problem.

(Me): Hey Steve, do we have a write up on removing mice from the HVAC???
(Steve): Just reach in and pull them out!
(Me): Right... okay then.



(Me): WHAT THE!? Where did it go? Guess it wasn't dead.

What followed after was me chasing three mice around the shed for about a half hour, then giving up and investing in some mouse traps. That was enough fun for one weekend.

Great shed. I recognize that bumper. Heat is great in the winter. Lots of working space there.
