What, this little guy?


Fun trip today looks like too.

That'* the little bastard alright. Wasn't he here when you were? He'* a big sucker now. Maine Coon breed.

Tomorrow starts the LIM and SC. FOR SURE. Depending on how my hand recovers from today'* work at FIE, I may get them done.

This wasn't a random post. I little off topic I suppose, but you are rebuilding the better part of it, so it oughta have a new gasket there.

My full gasket kit from Fel-Pro has one. I also have different thicknesses of cork and neoprene to cut my own.

Fel-pro is paper, I'll probably laser-cut my own out of neoprene.

I own 3 maine coons. They're all huge, shed a ton, eat like horses and well...put out like horses as well. And forget a bath, unless you have a death wish.

anyways. bill, i forgot to ask in my last post, how the heck is that lifter valley so clean? frequent oil changes or did you clean the block? I must have missed something?
