HOME FROM THE "BIG" SHOW, AND EVERYTHING PUT AWAY. GATE WAS OK FOR SUNDAY, PEOPLE WERE BUYING (JUST NOT WHAT WE WERE SELLING), BRINGING IN GUNS TO SELL. I WAS TEMPTED BY A VERY NICE MODEL 17 S&W, BUT COULDN'T GET HIM DOWN TO WHAT I WANTED TO PAY. SINCE I COULDN'T SHOOT IT IT WOULD HAVE HAD TO BE RE-SOLD. I SOLD A COUPLE OF BOOKS AND BOUGHT A VERY NICE 1.5X5 POWER LEUPOLD SCOPE AND RINGS AT A GOOD PRICE. SO THAT AND THE SAKO RINGS WERE MY WHOLE HAUL FOR THE SHOW.

HAD THE USUAL NUMBER OF VAMPIRES. IF THEY COULD SEE THEMSELVES IN A MIRROR THEY WOULDN'T GO OUT IN PUBLIC LOOKING THAT WAY :-)

CONGRATULATIONS, TEE.
NOW I CAN SAY I KNEW YOU BEFORE YOU WERE FAMOUS---

Hey guys, up and around and off to the church hall to set up for a meeting there. We had the State Chaplain of the Knights of Columbus here to talk about an amendment to the Kansas Constitution the people of Kansas will be voting on next August. Decent turnout of people coming over after Mass.

Came home and out two smaller roasts on the smoker for supper tonight.

Good afternoon y’all- quiet day here, been raining off and on all weekend . We’d planned to stay home in the pool but I guess that’s ruined for the rest of the year, this would’ve been the last weekend water was warm enough. We need a pool heater. It’s still hot out but nightly lows bring water temp down. Nursing home and errands Friday, we got out to flea market yesterday, I’m watching paint dry today on a couple outdoor tables. Need to find something to do. Hope everyone had a great weekend so far. Congrats on the win Tee

For sure, I have been checking out the modifications and tuning available for these. Both the 2.7 and 3.5 EcoBoost are capable of impressive power after tuning. Boost of any kind is easy power.

I might do a few basic bolt-ons. Cat back, catch can and air filter. Nothing that's going to void the warantee. I like the Corsa exhaust.... turbos whistle big tine but I also really like how quiet stock is.

My other daily driver the CTS-V has a B&B exhaust and its loud as heck.... do I really need that on both? Do my neighbors really need that every morning regardless of which vehicle I drive to work? Hard questions, I never would have asked when I was younger... LOL

Drove it a couple hundred miles to watch a race in southern Va yesterday. Mostly all hwy 75mph with very light traffic that was stop and go in a couple of spots. Anyway 23.8mpg average for the trip. Anytime I would go 80mph, i could tell it was dropping under 23mpg.

326miles on it and happy so far. Side steps and quad fold bed cover enroute.

Hey guys, I headed off early to drive an hour south to watch GS #3 run in his XC meet. It was a little cooler today when they ran. He ran a personal best time in the 5k, a 20:42. His goal for this meet was 20:55. He said he was tired, but within a couple minutes of finishing was breathing normally as though he hadn't even run...He then told me, I guess I need to push myself even harder.

Back home and off to church.

Yes I guess it is official now, at least they added the

2021 C6 of the Year Winner - Unmodified

To my Avitar signature. I am humbled, Thank you.

I thought of you while I watched the game. Your team played well—Oklahoma is really good and they made them look average. A loss is a loss, but that was an encouraging loss.

Wildlife including hawks abound in my yard. Lizards, birds, squirrels and the occasional rat are all game for my two predatory mutts. Of to the casino overnight and seeing Carlos Santana this evening. Should be fun. Won't be around tomorrow so I'll catch up on Monday. Enjoy your weekend, gurus.

Good Morning CGs!

Bob, sorry to hear about the engine woes but it's good you found those problems and were able to correct them before they became a bigger issue.

Put the dog out in the yard earlier and he was barking. That's normal, he keeps the birds, bunnies, and squirrels out of the yard. Very protective of his space. He didn't stop so I looked outside and saw a hawk perched on the pool rail 10 feet away from the dog. I got out there pretty quick. Hawk might not have been able to get him out of the yard but those talons would pierce his organs and kill him from the inside out. First time a hawk has been in the yard so I guess we need to be more careful.

Hope everyone has a great day!

I don't know why your car didn't do it from the start but every one I have put headers on or taller valve covers where you remove the brace to the alternator and or the support rods that go to the manifold vibrated noticeably afterwards.

The only thing that has been done is the tires. Reason I say this as before, the tires were old and didnt grip at all.
Now that I have stickier, fresher tires, I think the vibration is noticeable as I wasnt able to do 2 to 3rd gear pulls often without breaking traction all the time.
The vibration may have been there since I put headers on.
Just a theory, over thinking maybe..

Well.... I traded the F350 last week. I just couldn't stand driving it. So massive..... so rough riding unloaded. Plus I decided against buying a new trailer bigger than 24ft, which really makes needing to have a 1 ton Duper Duty nill. I love the power and towing capabilities of the Super Duty but after a year of ownership I hated the rest of the truck.


The dealer made it super easy. I paid 54k for the F350 this time last year.... they gave me 54k trade in.... which gave me over 11k to put down on a new F150. Financed the F150 for 4yrs, which is what I had left on the 350 anyways, dropped my payment by $200 a month.... insurance went down like $150 a year too.


I was amazed at the towing capabilities of the new 3.5 EcoBoost. 400hp and 500tq. I knew that was was going to be the powerplant. Of course we get a bit of snow here near DC and I like camping so 4x4 was also a requirement. Factory tow pkg was also a requirement. After the base F350 interior, I wanted nicer... not King Ranch but nicer than a base work truck.


Found a nicely optioned F150 with the STX package that fit all those. The only thing that let me down is the 3.31 gears and open rear diff.... still as equipped my truck has the 7450 GVW package and can tow up to 11,300lbs. If it would have had 3.55 or 3.73 gears... 13,800 and 14,000 tow capacity.... however the 3.31 will get better mileage unloaded and 11,300 is enough to pull what I have and plan for the future.


Also this thing moves out. Turbos spool near instant and it pulls hard all the way to 6500rpm redline. Quiet as a mouse as well. Very nice truck. Hopefully it'll be reliable and the 2ndcGen 3.5s supposedly have a ton of head room for more power..... but I bought the optional 100k warantee just in case.


Will

Not yet. When I get home in a week.
I will check the gap on AC clutch.
Other than that, winters coming, I will have allot of no ac needed time, lol.
I will find it..It might take a miracle, but I will.
I am going to redo the plugs too. Just for giggles..

Hi all,
Just read up on the past few days.
Happy anniversary Mat!
Thanks for the good thoughts on the leg. It’s doing pretty well now.
If anyone has noticed my absence these past few days, I’ve been working on the never ending project. I was going through my notes on it and realized I’d overlooked proper preparation of the lifters and rockers and set about to take care of it. I discovered a lifter body was not only missing a broken off section, but the piece was not visible anywhere.
Terror began to set in.
I soon surrendered to the fact the oil pan was going to be removed.
After removing the pan and windage tray, I looked through the bottom end with flashlights, probe-camera, and even mini-magnets and fingers.
No chip of lifter. All while rotating the crank periodically.
I also found my oil pump drive shaft to be substandard and had to replace it.
Preparing to reinstall the windage tray, I noticed the rod bolts of my stroker had been scraping and bending the tray. (???)
Using my nearly adequate metalworking abilities, along with a Torch and hammer, the windage tray now fits just fine!
So after three days of worry, work, a few bucks, not only are the issues resolved, but I’ve got a gashed knuckle, a bruised/bloody eyebrow (falling ratchet), a scraped elbow, and somehow my leg feels actually GREAT!
It must’ve been the exercise of getting up and down.
Time for a beer for Bob. I’m relaxing tonight!
Have a great weekend everyone!

atta boy Teeb..... thought they were going to mount a recall there for a bit..... due to who took the pic... congrats to you and 007.... you are damned near famous now....

I did not fare so well as the opposition which has a nice car but the pic is maybe the worst one of the 10 finalists but suddenly he has all these votes.... I was clearly the winner and will act like I won and demand some recounts...

looking forward to the weekend....the Huskers are coming to your State Gris... on the 50th anniversary of the Game of the Century..... This game will not look anything like the one in 1971 when men were men and women knew how to cook..... just kidding VB.... you are a great cook I hear...... Gotta go now...... and hang out...

Hey guys, getting ready to head to the 'tailgate' before the game. Sponsored by one of the groups at school, we'll support them by buying supper.

Finished up a couple projects today. Another hour on the software to finish the design I was working on last night and then about an hour cutting time.Here's the 'masterpiece'

[img]https://i.imgur.com/xdY4NDH.jpg?2[/img]

Pretty pleased with the way it came out... it will go on the wall in my office along with all the other Corvette stuff.

Well, I guess 007 won the competition over on the 'other' forum. Thanks for all here who my have voted for me.

One of the things I hate is replacing deep grooved tires because of weather checking and cracks. Really, I could try to drive the tires as hard as I might off these cars and still have plenty of tread to spare. The 90 vette needs a new pair of shoes.

Good Morning CGs!

Should be a nice day today. Sunny and warm. Cool in the evening with the top down but enjoyable.

Morning guys....slept in, well, not really, stayed up too late working on a project for the CNC (on the design software), so I got my normal 7 1/2 hours of sleep, just started late.

Not a lot on the agenda, home football tonight, XC tomorrow, about an hour south of here.

This month is rocketing by. Flying by would be understated. Mornings are slightly cooler but still roasting mid day. Committed to bringing all the cars back online. Ordering parts and making some financially painful decisions. If you want to play you gotta pay.

He got ahold of me today, sent it to his shipping guy. We shall see.
I am on travel allot, so I like to be able to tell relatives when a package is coming..
My C4 is driven allot more after fixing allot of stuff, such as battery, alternator ( literally broke, went to 17.5 volts, took it and the battery out), hot lead on alternator, fan motors, tires, windshield wipers ( clean all contacts with Diotox? and replaced capacitor on back of board), radiator cap wasnt holding pressure, overflow wasnt holding fluid, brake fluid went to the floor over heated it a few times too many and so I went to DOT4.
Had dash updated via Batees?
Never ends, lol.

Happy anniversary Matt!
I missed something about Bob and a blood clot. Hope all is allright with that.
I like that steering wheel. It has thumb gooves in it already.
busy as a three legged cat in a full litterbox here at work, owner will fllip when he sees what all I've put back there. he's got enough for a couple of weeks plus whatever else he had scheduled on his own with commercial and residential film or install-only jobs.
marcus, how long is the voting thing? I went and voted but can you vote once a day or just once period?

Morning guys... slept in some and not too motivated. Comfortable now, upper 60s, but headed to the mid 90s.

I bought a new steering wheel for 007...might think about changing that out in the next few days. It's a "D" shaped wheel and, hopefully, it will ease entry/exit when 007 is on the lift. Even with the tilt all up, I can't open the door very far, so entry/exit is tight. An additional inch on the bottom will make a difference.

atrophy is a huge problem with collector cars! It's why I am not a fan of these 300 mile C4 ZR1's... every piece of rubber or soft trim is suspect. Sad.

Communications is 90% of the battle in retail. I am surprised he doesn't realize that.

Oh ya, congrats on 15 years Matt and Mrs Matt. That's a milestone in the relationship bonds today. Couples give up too easy today but it comes as no surprise to me. Today many relationships are based on selfishness not selflessness. Which reminds me, I'd better get showered and dressed and head on over to help Sue.

Matt, are you sure the new couch isn't for YOU?

I've had the gears for the headlamp motors for a couple of years now but on the 90 it sounds like a gremlin is living inside one of the motors. It makes ticking noises. I'm buying some cheap aftermarket direct replacement motors. Even if they fail after a few uses they would still last a few years. lol

Sue has made her first call to me for the day. She insists upon being a PITA. STFU already. I have plenty of stuff to do without her calling me. I AM a grumpy old man.

Good Morning CGs!

Time seems to slip away from me and then I realize I missed a chat or two. Sorry.

Bob, glad the blood clot scare was just that....a scare.

Tommy, speaking of headlight motors I need to rebuild 2 on my buddy's TA. One of these days coming up.

Filled up the Vette on the way home and it was $49. Premium up to $4.15 around me. Ouch.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Ok ok.....calling all C6 forum votes in.... over the weekend I went from 3 up to now 2 behind..... anyone not voted for me? I'm just saying.....pretty suspicious that was way ahead and then by morning it was a complete turn around..... does that sound familiar? Teeb has a commanding lead in the unmodified group and we are calling that race early with 85% of the precincts in....

in the modified it is still too close to call.... any help will be appreciated..... I am not begging I am being persistent...


Nice day here today so I came home early and mowed and now I'm headed to the big chair..... catch you on the flip flop Guru's.......
