Not going anywhere... working... need to work on the Suburban tomorrow. Some cosmetic stuff.

Eagles are playing in the NFC Championship Game on Sunday. Should be a real hoot of a game. FLY, EAGLES, FLY!!!

Sadly, with my knee really bothering me, I am skipping Sebring, but aiming for Long Beach!

rain... more wonderful rain...

The drought is slowly fading away... thank goodness. Not without a price, tho. Flooding, trees down, things like that. So far, mud slides are happening, but not damaging things.

The reservoir's are slowly filling up... and they are measuring snow in the Sierra's in YARDS!

Happy Holidays everyone!!!

Some thoughts about foreign aide...

* Many times, it's medical supplies. We have strange rules attached to expiration dates. Legal things, persnickety people. However, these supplies are still good. So we give them away. The manufacture sells them to the government at cost, get a nice tax break and someone overseas gets supplies they desperately need.

* We have learned throughout history that letting others fight their wars is cheaper than DIY. Yet, we still seem to do it. There are other times that the political fallout is so damned dicey that getting involved is nothing short of national suicide. So, sending money is much safer for our own survival. I am referring to the Ukraine here. As much I as I would love to mobilize NATO, doing so could easily mean ICBMs landing all over the US.

For what it is worth, spending money like this is much cheaper than having to deal with them hating us, which they would do... hate is the wrong word, resent is more like it.

It's complex, but it is what it is... I just wish we would stop backing the wrong dictator... but I could go on and on about that aspect of our history... don't even get me started about Vietnam....

Tuesday and the sun is out!

It has been a rainy December, which is great.

My nephew lives out in the desert near Temecula, and they got a nice little 1" snow. It also snowed down in the mountains near Huntington Beach!

Working hard... otherwise, that's about it.

Hey, Ultraman - What about the Huskers new coach? I am staying optimistic.

It has rained here. Quite a bit. Pretty heavy, in fact.

We need every drop, and more importantly, every snowflake... which the mountains have gotten in spades!!!

Howdy gang!

Sunny and cool down here. Very seasonable. Been a bit damp, too. Which is great!

81 years ago, we declared war on Japan. The next day, Hitler declared war on us. It took us 3 years and 9 months to wipe the world of both enemies. Pretty damned impressive, when you think about it.

I splurged and bought one of those Balsam Hill artificial Christmas trees. oh, so very nice!! even has a remote for the lights!!

Death by lathe? Sounds gruesome.

Sad about Christine McVie. Lovely artist. I have used this metaphor a few times.... The George Harrison of Fleetwood Mac, not the most prolific, but what she did write was magic.

Happy December... Been chilly here. Chance of rain, about 60F today.

Here in SoCal, it's been much cooler. Chilly for us, really.

Overnight lows are into the high 40s, daytime, maybe 70.

It's the 40's part that is chilly. The 70 part is pretty damned near perfect!

Thinking that a month ago, we were using A/C, and here we are now using heat! We have the furnace set to 65, it usually kicks in about 0500 once or twice before the sun comes up. Takes the edge off. We also have a little electric/oil space heater. It's a very nice deLongi. It is an oil filled radiator that is electrically powered. Heats the bathroom perfectly.

Otherwise, a busy day ahead!

Tommy looks tuckered out.

This season in WEC was a great learning experience and with some wins. 2nd here was a win!

I am curious what the future will bring... but as long as the Corral's stay, all will be sorta ok!

I am not commenting on political issues. I find my moderate position only pisses people off and sets off an argument no one wins.

We are all dried up here in SoCal... It has been raining off and on for the last two days. Rain we desperately needed! Got a lot of snow in the Mountains, state wide. Exciting.

Autumn has arrived... It's chilly here! It was about 50 this morning... and after weeks of hot - with some moderation over the last month or so - this is a bit of a culture shock!!

We had rain Monday/Tuesday... and more coming next week.

I hope lots more!!!

There is another firm that does hydro-printing, too. Pretty neat stuff. It's a very durable decal. They look great.

Getting ready to watch the F1 race!

Quite sports weekend... all of our faves are on bye... Eagles are off, so are the USC Trojans and the Cornhuskers.

My wife is kinda a 49'ers fan, but I don't think she follows nearly as close as she used to.

We had rain on Saturday. Quite a bit, really. For us, it was a lot... and it's cooled off.

My work laptop died on Friday, the solid state drive took a crapola. The replacement arrived today and I should have my system back later today or tomorrow morning.

Otherwise, the Phillies and the Eagles won! The Phil's meet the Padres in the NLCS and the Eagles are the last unbeaten team, at 6-0! And they beat the Cowboys! Double whammy.

this is a super common problem on, of all things, Ferrari's.

There is a firm in MD called Sticky No More, https://stickynomore.com/, they will remove that coating and apply a new coating. It lasts longer and won't break the bank.

There are other fixes involving hydro-printing. Essentially, a water transfer.

as far as Ian is concerned, my brother and his wife are safe.

They evac'd to West Palm Beach and missed the heavy weather that beat up Sebring.

As for us, we are in SoCal and would just love to have some of that rain.

Chill on the special interests...

The reality is very real. Gasoline, as it sits, is a toxic material. It is made up of unchained hydrocarbons and as such, is a known atmospheric toxin. The average lawnmower will leach more gas vapour into the atmosphere in a day than a car will in a month... or some stupid statistic like that.

A vintage car will absolutely pollute more with a full tank of gas in it, just sitting there, not running, than a modern car will driving... I don't remember the ratio off hand, but the numbers are mind boggling.

I have stated this before, but I do live in Los Angeles. I have seen pollution first hand and it lives in the basin.

You see, LA is basin. There are mountains on the north, east and south sides, and a cold ocean, with an ever present inversion layer, to the west. This keeps the area stuck in it's own air for long periods of time. The native indigenous population called LA the "great smoky valley" even 200 years ago, because of the way the smoke hung in the air.

Back in about 1968, after SMOG was first identified and named, they put air filters on the roofs of tall buildings in downtown LA. These filters were white things with slats and a thick white filter paper inside. They captured particulate emissions.

After 1 day - ONE DAY - they were pitch black.

Fast forward to 1983 (or so), and those same filters could sit up there for 90 days and turn just a light shade of off grey. Improvement. Yes, it had its cost, but the benefits are worth it.

The reality? The simple act of adding the PCV to an engine cut emissions by a real percentage and didn't effect performance one damned bit. EGR, same thing. And it helps cut down on knock, win-win. The real ding was the early catalytic converter, those things were junk and sucked power like a cheap hooker. Add in the drop in compression ratios, the change in horsepower ratings, and yes, the regulations sucked...

However, tech caught up making modern hot rods impressive as hell... You can walk into your local Dodge dealer and walk out with a 700hp sedan that still gets 20mpg on the highway, for not insane money. Deals exist on used Corvette Z06's, where you can get 505hp, 24 mpg highway, for under $40k!!! And it's daily drivable. Insane in the membrane...

1948, or so, the steel industry in Pittsburgh was polluting the air so bad that it left the city cast in permanent midnight. And don't forget when the Monongalia river caught fire! Look it up.

I am not some leftist tree hugger, but I am a realist and I like to breath clean air and drink clean water. That requires thoughtful regulation.

So, if you want to breath clean air, think before you let some conspiracy theories or neo-NAZI propaganda confuse the issue.

As for the emissions part, yes, there is a vacuum line. As I said, the valve array is under the ASR servo. There are a couple of lines that feed it and come off the left side of the intake. You should see a couple of 1/8" hard lines, and some soft lines, down below the A/C compressor, heading to an area below the ASR servo. Not hard to follow, just be careful what you disconnect and what you connect, I think those lines also feed the ductwork inside the car.

Toss in the suspect connector and all sorts of failures are potentially present.

Great fix!!

The MAP is very important to helping the engine get the right fuel flow. Without it, all hell breaks loose!

Thanks for posting!

Do they have a Corvette Corral? I see no info, but I was curious... This was a track I have always wanted to visit. The sight lines are super sweet with the undulating hills and stuff.

upon reflection, this is the evap system. It runs from a valve gang under the ASR servo, and vents fuel vapours into the charcoal canister.

you see, evap emissions are a real problem. As gas evaporates, it is a hard core pollutant. And this is a simple way to pressurize the fuel system and capture and burn off the vapours. This makes an epic impact on emissions, without effecting performance.

emissions.

It is part of the evap/egr system. Not cooling. Not with those wuss assed clamps!

yea... we have a 1mb limit.

1995? heater hose? that's all on the passengers side.

power steering is on the left, AC goes over the top and heads to the passengers side.

yea, ethanol does a number on marine engines.

pretty much any engine that isn't driven on a regular basis.
