LoL...

At this point while on a break from the Middle East sharing good bourbon just isn't going to happen, hell I would have eaten a greasy pork sandwich from a dirty ashtray just a week ago.

Brother, you sound like you need it more than I do at the moment!

Enjoy your bourbon and your time off


Ironically I met Tom Bulleit on vacation in Gatlinburg TN at a knife and gun show, him and another gentleman were setting up the bourbon bottles for their display. Pretty down to earth dude, I talked with him for a handful of minutes and he actually sent me on my way with a bottle of #10!

I think he was blown away that I recognized him, I conveniently neglected to tell him that I had just seen him and the company in a documentary on the Music & Spirits that made Kentucky.

Thanks and if you happen to run into him again let him know that I plan on finishing the case I have in the Philippines and that he needs to redesign his case ,because the airlines told me that a case of Bourbon doesn't qualify as luggage... Now I am on my way to butcher a fat hog and I don't mean the dependapotamus I was married to back in the 90's

You have to pack that stuff in a pelican case, that way they don’t give you any grief!



“Dependapotamus” - too funny! I tried that shoe on once too, worked for about 18 months and then the hag got my car!

Needless to say I wasn’t smart enough not to do it again... but the second time around I got lucky and found a good one . Been 22 years and she still support my car habit .

(Though just recently she did suggest that I get something more dependable... like her Buick... we almost divorced on the spot!)

I hear you bro after the last one I found and married an old fashioned gal just like mom. I took her home and dad didn't like her kidding but that was many PX's ago. She didn't like my machine gun collection but after I got her a suppressed Walther she does have me somewhat concerned.... Just remembered I have to get flowers or she'll get them for my wake.

I was going to edit my post but it wouldn't let me use the word "Buick"

I like that - too funny!! That is how I felt, (yes, i admit it, I'm about to say "before I had a Buick) before I had a Buick...


My wife got t-boned and totaled our Sequoia and my father-in-law just happened to be looking for a new car at the time so he gave us an unbelievable deal on his new Buick Enclave. I prefer driving the X ALL DAY over the Buick but I do have to admit, that Enclave ended up being a great car - for her!


And I actually don't mind driving it on road trips, it keeps the miles off mine

Project is officially under way!


In just a few hours this evening I was able to get everything off the motor and the valve covers loose and ready to come off in the morning. Fingers crossed tomorrow is good to me and I can make some more progress. I have about 12 hours I can put in to it starting in the morning and am really hoping to get through as much as I can.


Up to now the only issue I have had is one of the torx bolts holding the ground straps on the valve cover rounded out on me and I had to cut a slot in it and remove it with a large flat head screwdriver - all in all, not too bad.


Fingers crossed for tomorrow!


I haven't verified yet if I have any weeping around the alternator bracket, I am hoping all is well and I can move on, but the fact that I am "near" it now, actually moving the alternator to get to that last timing cover bolt...


ALMOST makes me want to pull the mounts, drop the diff down and just do it now... I am pushing just at 115,000 miles???
