I don't know of any ac difference between the coupes and the convertibles. The C4 blower / fan speed certainly sucks though, imho.

I would bet it is just by chance....I would think all the systems were the same in the coupes or the ragtops...... but may stand corrected.....

Only 82 here today but the Humids were making it like 90.... going out next week where the Humids have been banned for life... going to do some Glamping and primal eating of the red meats cooked over a campfire..... don't worry we will have WiFi and AC if needed....

we will be there for the Corvette Rally..... but wait..... I don't have a Corvette..... that will be awkward.... maybe I will see something I like....

keep moving Guru's.....

Back again. Old sensor was 2500 ohms at 75 degrees. According to this chart it was off. I am going to keep fiddling with it, check it in hot water, freezer etc..
Reconnected battery, all is well, as far as code being gone.

Good morning - hot and muggy here too, 100+ with 112 feels like temps all rest of this week. I've already had to be outside with a van and have a food truck coming late this afternoon when temps are at the max. Not looking forward to it. Have a dude scheduled to come in during my lunch hour for logo design, and have another fleet vehicle for the pool people. I'm popular this week around here seems like. Have two trailers getting started now, plus a car sent home yesterday, another daycare van ready when she gets back from vaca.
Stay cool and hydrated!

Morning guys… hot and muggy in north central Kansas and it was raining a little bit ago.

Not much on the agenda. Just got back from a walk and bike ride. Headed to the “Little Apple” after while to play golf with GS

Good Morning CGs!

Wrapping up the northern Michigan UP vacation today. Driving home shortly, about a 5 hour trip back home. It was a good time at the farm. I did a lot of work which I enjoyed. Father-in-law-in-law was happy to have me. Mother-in-law-in-law said I worked too much and it was supposed to be a vacation. Work is good for the body and the soul. That's what I think. Although when I was on top of the flat roof yesterday (in the sun) painting it with sealer I wasn't thinking that. But it got done. All of the chores were taken care of. Hopefully I can make it back up here in the fall.

Kids had fun. RR#2 got to shot a gun for the first time, a little bolt action .22 learner's gun that was gifted to me by a friend. Also had a little Ithaca lever action .22 but I think that was a little too big for him still.

That's it for me.

Hope everyone has a great day!

ANOTHER SUMMER MORNING IN THE NATIONS, 83/63%, SHOOTING FOR 100.

NOTHING MAJOR ON THE AGENDA, MAYBE A RUN TO TAHLEQUAH TO RESTOCK DOG FOOD. HAD SO MUCH TROUBLE FINDING WHAT I WANT LAST TIME I WANT TO KEEP A RESERVE BAG.

IN THE SEVEN YEARS WAR FREDERIC THE GREAT IS KICKING ASS BUT RUNNING OUT OF SOLDIERS. WOLFE IS ON HIS WAY TO QUEBEC AND THE POLITICIANS ARE ACTING LIKE POLITICIANS.

AND TODAY IN THE USA THE HYSTERICAL NATIONAL SOCIALIST DEMOCRATS ARE PROVING ONCE AGAIN THERE IS NO PROBLEM THAT GOVERNMENT CAN NOT MAKE WORSE.
RETURN WITH US NOW THOSE THRILLING DAYS OF JIMMY CARTER---

STAY COOL, AMIGOS.

PRESS RELEASE:

Milner, Tandy seek to rebound from heartbreaking Le Mans in C8.R’s Italian
debut


CORVETTE RACING AT MONZA: Visiting The Temple of Speed
Milner, Tandy seek to rebound from heartbreaking Le Mans in C8.R’s Italian
debut

DETROIT (July 5, 2022) – With the heartbreaking memory of Le Mans in the
rearview mirror, Corvette Racing is looking to regroup as it heads to Italy
for the first time ahead of the Six Hours of Monza in the FIA World
Endurance Championship.

As they have for the previous three WEC races, Tommy Milner and Nick Tandy
will share the No. 64 Mobil 1/SiriusXM Chevrolet Corvette C8.R, which is on
its maiden globe-trotting tour in 2022. It’s the first  “new” event for the
Corvette WEC program, having previously been to Sebring, Spa and – of
course – Le Mans.


The 3.60-mile, 11-turn circuit is one of the fastest in the world with
multiple long straights and huge braking zones for the four WEC categories.
Even without having set foot inside Monza Park – where Autodromo Nazionale
Monza sits – there already is data from the long straights and slow corners
at Le Mans that Corvette Racing engineers can refer to when establishing a
baseline for this weekend.


Input also will come from Tandy, one of the few Corvette Racing team members
who has previous experience at the circuit. This will be the case for Fuji
and Bahrain to close the WEC season, although Milner has accumulated several
hours of simulator work ahead of his first race at the Italian circuit.


The No. 64 Corvette opened the WEC season with a strong second-place showing
at the rain-shortened 1,000 Miles of Sebring. Things were trending the right
way for the Tandy/Milner pairing at the Six Hours of Spa before a red flag
just past the one-hour mark wiped out the team’s first planned pit stop and
effectively put the Corvette a lap down before finishing fourth.


Le Mans was the cruelest blow with the No. 64 C8.R eliminated while
effectively leading just shy of the 18-hour mark.


The Six Hours of Monza for the FIA World Endurance Championship is scheduled
for noon CET/6 a.m. CET on Sunday, July 10 from Autodromo Nazionale Monza in
Italy. Qualifying is set for 5:30 p.m. CET/11:30 a.m. ET on Saturday, July
9. The race will air live on MotorTrend with live streaming coverage of the
race and qualifying on the MotorTrend Plus app. Radio Le Mans will broadcast
qualifying and the race.


TOMMY MILNER, NO. 64 MOBIL 1/SiriusXM CHEVROLET CORVETTE C8.R: “It’s another
classic track that we’ve never had a chance to compete at before and it’s
one I’m looking forward to. Based on what Nick has said about the area and
especially the history of the track makes it something special to compete
there. So I’m excited for that opportunity. I’ve had a chance to do some
laps in the simulator. Looking at the track layout, it seems fairly simple
in some ways but driving it has its own unique challenges. It’s fun to
drive, too. The corners are quite different where you have some very slow
chicanes and some pretty quick third- and fourth-gear corners. There is a
wide variety of track sections. The slowest part of the track is preceded by
a very long straightaway, which will be great for racing. It’s exciting. I
enjoy the historic part of the sport so the chance to see the old Monza
banking is something I can’t wait to see.”


NICK TANDY, NO. 64 MOBIL 1/SiriusXM CHEVROLET CORVETTE C8.R: “Monza is
another classic place. When anyone speaks of Monza, it’s one of those iconic
names and venues. The word just strikes passion into motorsport. Any series
that races there is a top event, and it’s a privilege to race at the circuit
and in Monza Park. It’s not a normal setting for a racetrack near a city but
in an actual park. Even from driving into the circuit, it’s a different
experience. When you get to the track, it’s unlike any other circuit. It’s
short but it’s so defined by the fast straightaways. It’s a bit like Daytona
in that sense. It’s fun.”

More Monza: “It’s a normal lap time but there are effectively six corners –
three corners and three chicanes. From that point of view, it’s not the most
technical circuit for a driver. On the other hand, for the car and
engineering crew, trying to get a window where your car operates is
critical. Of course you have to be fast in a straight line but the car has
to be really good under braking. This is a huge thing about Monza. ... It’s
a real tricky one to kind of figure out for what is best for ultimately
making laptime out of your car. Of course, we are new as it will be the
first time that Corvette Racing has been to Monza. I’ll be relaying my
experience from previous years to the team and try to help out. Past that,
we’ve already started our prep and started running on the sim before Le
Mans. We’ve figured out a few options we can take with us to find what’s
best. But I’m also looking forward to seeing everyone’s faces and the people
who have never been and have a chance to go to Italy and have a look around
this amazing facility and amazing town.”

I was tired so I went to bed around 08:00 PM. I slept through most of the clamour outside but a few booms broke my sleep. Sue woke me and told me there is a fire behind my BILs nursery two doors down from us. Small fire in the woods behind his place. Agriculture police patrol put it out with some water they carry in tanks in their pickupbeds. Sis and that BIL headed home yesterday morning. I spent today prepping he house for the exterminator coming tomorrow. No tent termite treatment that kills other insects as well. 2 year guarantee. I really don't want to tent the house. Small termite infestation in localized areas so I hope it works. I'll spend tomorrow lurking around and caring for our pets while thhey treat. Non toxic to pets but I just have to get them out of the way. That's about it on my end.

Hey guys, we got up early got packed up and headed east. It was pretty warm when we got up and as we came east it just kept getting hotter and more humid. Checked in to the cabin got unpacked and headed to the pool. It felt pretty good even though the water was a bit warm.

Nothing else planned for today except stay in her school.

They got back to me and stated I have a code 15, low coolant temp sensor. Interesting, as I have no check engine light. I scanned the car with my OBD cable. Nothing, but Datamaster had it on there. They asked for me to address that, then relog data.
Hmm..
I imagine it is the one in the water pump.. Let me go find a good one...

Let me know how it all goes and fitment. If I do this again I'll order the Mexico ones, but I'd already ordered the Taiwan set before I saw a post that others existed. these went together nicely just were missing those tabs and pegs is all I could tell. Would be interesting to know of any other difference there might be. Our Vette club plans to meet Thursday, I thought I'd take them to show the group as we have other C6ers in there.

good morning, hope everyone had a bang yesterday in celebration of the freedoms we still have. Nothing for us. We got up, had breakfast, then went to town to Trees and Trends. they had a good sale on outdoor stuff. I've been looking at a patio set for us to downsize from the other one, but I'm the more thrifty sort. No way I'd pay their original price and their 'sale' price did't suit me either But - manager offered 20% extra off and then another 10% off veterans discount. I still think he figured it wrong as it came up 300$ less than I thought it should have. No complaints here and I"m proud to have it . No fireworks at our house, neighbors had plenty, we didn't even stick our head out to look. Just too freakin hot here and projections of 101 next three days in a row. It's not even the dog days of summer yet.

80 DEGREES ON THE FRONT PORCH, CALM, AND NEEDLESS TO SAY, SUNNY AT 0755 HRS. 69% HUMIDITY AND A PREDICTED HIGH OF 97. SURE AM GLAD I DON'T HAVE TO WORK OUTSIDE! AND AUGUST IS COMING---

WE SKIPPED THE FT GIB FIREWORKS, DARLING WIFE DIDN'T WANT TO GO, AND I'VE SEEN FIREWORKS BEFORE :-)

THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING ON THE AGENDA.

THE SEVEN YEARS WAR IS UP TO THE SECOND FALL OF LOUISBURG; PITT IS IN CHARGE AND THE TIDE IS TURNING AGAINST THE FRENCH, WHO HAVE WRITTEN OFF NORTH AMERICA. THIS IS A GOOD BOOK, IF OVERLY DETAILED LIKE MOST CONTEMPORARY HISTORY I'VE READ.

ALWAYS FORWARD, Y'ALL.

PRESS RELEASE:
Garcia, Taylor take runner-up GTD PRO finish in return to Canada


CORVETTE RACING AT CTMP: No. 3 Corvette Back on Podium
Garcia, Taylor take runner-up GTD PRO finish in return to Canada

BOWMANVILLE, Ontario (July 3, 2022) – Corvette Racing’s Antonio Garcia and
Jordan Taylor made their way back onto the GT Daytona (GTD) PRO podium
Sunday as the No. 3 Mobil 1/SiriusXM Chevrolet Corvette C8.R placed second
at the Chevrolet Grand Prix at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park.


It’s the first podium for the Corvette duo since April’s race at Long Beach
for the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship. The result boosted Garcia
and Taylor back into second place in the GTD PRO Drivers Championship, with
Chevrolet moving to second in the Manufacturers Championship with four races
left in the season.


The No. 3 Corvette finished 1.115 seconds behind the winning No. 9 Porsche,
which led all but nine of 111 laps.


A couple of early-race caution periods Sunday forced Corvette Racing
engineers to alter the team’s pre-race plan. Starting fourth, Taylor drove a
double-stint and moved up a spot at the start when one of the front-row GTD
cars went around at the first corner. The No. 3 Corvette was on the inside
line and got through the incident unscathed.


For the next hour and 40 minutes, Taylor was part of a three-car train of
GTD PRO leaders that rarely were separated by more than one second. Taylor
expertly saved fuel and his Michelin tires while at the same time maximizing
the performance of the C8.R to remain with the leaders.


His persistence paid off when he made a lunge on the far end of the circuit
to take second with 75 minutes  to go. The No. 3 Corvette stopped for the
second time with 64 minutes left as Garcia took over with full fuel and four
fresh Michelin tires.


Two more yellows interrupted Garcia’s charge, which hampered what Corvette
Racing hoped was an advantage on long runs. But every time Garcia got close
to the Porsche, it would pull away again to about a lead of one second to
the end of the race.


Corvette Racing’s next event in IMSA is the Northeast Grand Prix on July
15-16 from Lime Rock Park in Lakeville, Conn.


ANTONIO GARCIA, NO. 3 MOBIL 1/SiriusXM CHEVROLET CORVETTE C8.R – FINISHED
SECOND IN GTD PRO: "We gave it our all. It was a perfect race for us. We
finished second, and that's all we had. We pushed the winning car, but it
wasn't enough. Next race, we'll try to go a little faster and do something
different. This is what it also takes to win championships. So we need to
stay in contact, and I'm sure the wins will come."
Dealing with traffic: "It wasn't easy. With the prototype traffic being so
much faster than us, it was difficult to really get a chance to get close to
the Porsche. Whenever the prototypes would pass, they would go and there
would be another one pretty soon. Maybe with more LMP3s there would have
been more of a chance to do something different. With the DPis being so much
faster than us - especially with their cornering - it wasn't ideal to try to
work traffic in your favor. Now that we are in the slowest category instead
of GTLM, you don't have those opportunities to use traffic. All the traffic
you're in is going by. It's difficult to use that in your favor."
The last 20 minutes: "I think it felt like the Porsche was showing what they
had to show. Whenever we would stop saving fuel or tires, it felt like they
had some in reserve. We thought that without those two yellows and a more
consistent stint, maybe we would have had a chance. Up until the last yellow
I was saving the tires, but on the last yellow we knew it would be a race to
the end. We both went 100 percent. They just had more. Every second I lost
in traffic, it took five or six laps to get that back. It was difficult but
in general we did a perfect race. We started fifth and finished second, so
we gained a lot today."


JORDAN TAYLOR, NO. 3 MOBIL 1/SiriusXM CHEVROLET CORVETTE C8.R – FINISHED
SECOND IN GTD PRO:"It was action-packed! The start was hectic. I got a bad
start, actually, but there were some cars in front of me that saved my
start. I thankfully was on the right line to cycle through up to third. Once
we went to green and settled in, we were saving fuel. I could see the Aston
Martin was struggling but it was going to be so hard to pass him without
traffic. So I was saving as much as I could, and every time we go traffic I
would try to stay close and make something happen. Once I got in clean air
our car seemed to come alive a little bit. It had surprising pace, and I was
quite happy with it. The Porsche was struggling a little bit toward the end
of their stint. Hopefully it stays green. Tire degradation seems to be to
our advantage so a long stint is what we are hoping for."
Dealing with the traffic: "You just kind of hope and pray that they get the
same bad luck every now and then. I think every P3 car that passed me was
into Turn Eight; I had only one pass me into Turn One. I would see the other
guys get held up every now and then. It comes and goes. We had a bunch of
bad ones but we got some good ones, too."
Overall thoughts: "It was a great day back at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park
and at the Chevrolet Grand Prix. We maximized what we could today. It's not
great for the overall points, but considering where we started the day we
can be pretty happy with where we ended up. We'll move on to Lime Rock and

Steve Miller band concert was great lat night. 78 years old and still playing a mean guitar. His bass player was also a founding member. Great show. Good audience participation. Originally Steve Miller was playing in Chicago with Buddy Guys' band. Les Paul was a family friend and taught him his first chords. When he inquired to Les Paul about giving him a guitar Les told him he had to earn a guitar. He didn't get a Les Paul till many years later. Good story. Sue did well on the card table. Me, I lost on the slots.

Morning guys...warm here. I've got the grill fired up and getting ready for the ribs to go on.

All the local family will be here later to consume those ribs later.

Thinking about dropping 007 down and going for a short drive...can't be long as I have to babysit the ribs.

Good Morning CGs!

Happy 4th to all.

We will be grilling some steaks and burgers later.

Worked outside all day yesterday. I was whipped in the evening. I'm sure there's more to do today.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Good afternoon, all.

I've been "signaling" for most of the weekend: American flag tie at work on Friday (which was a big hit), battleships shirt today, World War 2 aircraft shirt tomorrow.

July 4th weekend is usually pretty quiet for us, and it looks like 2022 will be the same. On Friday evening, we went out to a fun dinner with the parents of our goddaughter. Saturday evening was at a dual graduation party being held by the Mexican side of Ivelis's family—as expected, the food was superb. Otherwise, mostly errands and chores.

If the weather is nice tomorrow, we'll try to take Grace out (Louis goes in for body work on the 11th).

Have a glorious Fourth, folks.

Yesterday wasn't Tuesday and seeing this post lets me know today is Sunday and not Saturday. Where'd my weekend go already? Ran errands all day Friday and went to the gym. Our gym has a new location in town and I tried that one out. It has more things and I like it better, but from my work its inconvenient. It's good for the off days though, and I've scheduled a meet Friday with a trainer to maybe start some light boxing again for added cardio.
Car goes to paint week after next when he gets some other jobs cleared out of the way, and the search is starting for me a new daily driver. The car will move to "toy" status then. We're looking for a 2014-16ish Range Rover Sport 5.0 Supercharged Dynamic. The dynamic will offset body roll and it'll run plus it'll be good for all sorts of weather and driving conditions, it'll also be the trip taking vehicle instead of the truck. I just paid his truck off to clear that note out and then he'll tote the note on the Rover when we find one. After Oneta's passing I was left with about $20k and hated to pull most of that out but I do need a daily vehicle, have been needing one. I still have a little left that will finish off whatever I end up owing on the car plus leave some to sit there that hopefully I can add to it over time.

I will research the timing. I think 34 is max for a LT1 at idle. So, I may have to bring the other timings down a few points and blend it..

I like the timing issue... it fits and considering the changes made to the TC, continues.

if you wait, it might not be until Tuesday...

Good Evening CGs!

Little road trip today. Up at the small farm belonging to my sister in law's parents. Love it here. I have to some to do tomorrow. Always something to do (looking forward to it).

Hope everyone has a great day!

I had changed the lock up to 55mph, made no difference.
I am hoping PCMforless address the timing issue. I could do it myself..Or wait for them to get back to me.
Today was tinker with 4runner day..

I'm no expert with this stuff. When I had surging with my 383 and 700r4 2800 stall I put in a switch to unlock to the converter. I wouldn't lock the converter until about 50 mph. Might try a higher speed setting.

Press Release:

Corvette C8.R feeling good but struggling for pace in Canadian debut

 

CORVETTE RACING AT CTMP: Steep Hills to Climb
Corvette C8.R feeling good but struggling for pace in Canadian debut

BOWMANVILLE, Ontario (July 2, 2022) – Corvette Racing’s No. 3 Chevrolet Corvette C8.R will start from the third row of the GT Daytona (GTD) category Sunday for the Chevrolet Grand Prix at Canadian Tire Motosport Park – the first race for the mid-engine Corvette in Canada.


Jordan Taylor set a best lap of 1:15.955 (116.547 mph) in the Mobil 1/SiriusXM C8.R to qualify fourth in the GTD PRO category. He was 0.487 seconds behind the pole-winning Porsche of Mathieu Jaminet.


A performance deficit left Taylor and Antonio Garcia starting similarly down the GTD PRO order a week ago at Watkins Glen International. With no significant changes to the Corvette on the performance side, the key will be gaining positions through strategy and execution – just like at The Glen.


Corvette Racing – and the rest of the WeatherTech Championship – is back at CTMP for the first time since 2019. The C8.R is the fourth generation of Corvette to compete around and over the elevation changes at CTMP since the Corvette Racing program first competed there in 2000 with the Corvette C5-R.


Since that time, the team has claimed 11 victories at the track – second-most among all venues behind only Sebring. Three of those came in Corvettes driven by Canadian and Corvette Racing legend Ron Fellows, who is co-owner of Canadian Tire Motorsport Park.


The Chevrolet Grand Prix at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park is scheduled for 3:05 p.m. ET on Sunday, July 3. The race will air live on NBC and stream live on Peacock inside the United States and IMSA.com outside the U.S. IMSA Radio will broadcast the race at IMSA.com with the call also on XM 207 and SiriusXM Online 992.

 
JORDAN TAYLOR, NO. 3 MOBIL 1/SiriusXM CHEVROLET CORVETTE C8.R – QUALIFIED FOURTH IN GTD PRO: "The car is good. We're just slow. It's frustrating. I felt like the lap was pretty good but we're off the pace. It's nothing we're doing wrong. We've improved the car through the weekend, and it's the best it's been since we've been here. Hopefully we can play some strategy in the race, jump ahead of some guys and hopefully hold them off.
"I think the only hope for us is big tire degradation or traffic. On speed alone, we won't be able to pass anyone I don't think. We'll have to hope for some other guys to make mistakes and hopefully our guys in the pitlane can make some passes for us."

After looking at the run I just did, its not the torque converter.
I noticed the closed TPS spark advance is 4 to 6 degrees difference then when it barely opens. I am thinking that the timing is going back and forth causing it to surge/buck a little.
Converter was locked, at least according to the Data log..

First morning with gloom in days and the breeze and cooler temps show it! yay!

Been busy... went to San Diego last weekend... drove the C6 and got about 20 mpg on the congested 405 and 5 freeways. We stayed at the Marriott Marquis in the Marina district, downtown. Lovely experience. The hotel restaurant, Marina Grill, was FABULOUS.

The interesting fact, the valet service only has about 8 folks, out of 45 total staff, that can drive a stick!! According the the valet manager, some hotels won't even valet cars with sticks!!! damn...

no clue... I am not knowledgeable enough about how torque converters work... the biggest void in my gearhead knowledge base, actually.

good luck?

Morning guys... a rain cloud passed last night and left us a whole 1/10th of an inch...we'll take it. Hot again today,

#2 and hubby invited us over for wings after church. They both have to work on the 5th, so they are doing their celebration today. I told them I'm doing ribs on the 4th and they can come over for that.

77/83%/93 AT 0744 HR THIS MORNING, HUMIDITY RETURNS TO THE BAD TO GODAWFUL RANGE. THE CHEROKEES COULD DO WITHOUT THIS CRAP.

GOT ALL MY FIRST OF MONTH STUFF DONE, READY FOR JULY.

WENT OVER TO TAHLEQUAH FOR SUPPER AT OUR FAVORITE I-TIE PLACE AND FOUND IT CLOSED, BUSTED WATER PIPE. DROVE BACK TO FT GIB AND ATE AT THE BOOMERANG. ONE OF THE FORMER WAITRESSES WAS BACK. SHE USED TO LOOK LIKE AN OVER-INFLATED SEX DOLL; SHE'S LOST WEIGHT AND LOOKS GREAT NOW. I ALWAYS KNEW THERE WAS A GOOD LOOKING WOMAN UNDER ALL THAT FAT :-)

NOTHING ON THE AGENDA TODAY.

READING A GOOD BOOK ABOUT THE SEVEN YEARS WAR (FRENCH AND INDIAN WAR IN AMERICA). THIS COULD BE CALLED THE FIRST "WORLD WAR" AND LED INTO THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION.

STAY COOL, GURUS!
