Wow big thank you to everyone for the support and kind words
John is off to classes and left me his laptop to get caught up around here, he'* a great guy and his room mates have been awesome showing me a good time
We played 'rock band' last night for over 4 hours, my voice is shot today but I can only imagine how they're ears feel now

I did all I could to the explorer yesterday for John, fixed his leaky windshield washer pump, few trim pieces and a total detail.
They keep a very clean house so I dont have much to do today, I detailed the bathroom yesterday and cleaned the microwave this morning, wish there was more I could do express my gratitude.....in time

I called the shop this morning and they were waiting on some bushings, have to call back at 2 to see if they will have it done today and I can pick it up. Other wise I will have another day here.

You bet Matt would be glad to detail the cars for you but I hope this is the last trouble I will have.

Hey just to let ya know, you don't have to break down to visit. I know it sucks having to go through this and hopefully it will all end soon. I understand you want to get home and you are wanted home.

Just be sure to be careful and have a safe final trip.


And a repeat, if you are ever in the area feel free to stop by. pm sent

Drove great for 3 months like this!

Believe it or not, the cylinder bore just needs to be honed. Bearings look great. Crank too.

You sure you could even salvage that bore? There'* some ugly things happening on the side of the piston that couldn't have been friendly to the bore.
