Found I had a plugged Idle Jet and also a sticky powervalve. After cleaning both, I have very little stuble in the throttle and I think a little more adjustment will take care of it.

Repaired a bolt that was supposed to be holding my voltage regulator, but instead was shorting across it.

Filled with 11.5 gal, didn't think I was going to make it to the gas station. Amazing how it can run with no fuel in the filter. That's my first nearly full tank of gas I've run through it without siphoning it for other uses.

Found my brakes work well enough to lock 3 wheels up when traffic came to a halt on grand today.

Repaired one of my driving lights on the rail. Mickey moused a water faucet knob on the driver's side cam-release 5-point seatbelts (or spend $150 for replacement). Cleaned UNI filter wrap. Looking for some parts to fix the stripped out carb/manifold bolt.

Took the rail out for its refresher course at the water fall out in Florence. Sorry about the large pictures they are not from my camera.
These steps are where I went down. The view is from the top.

Now I don't feel so bad, I thought I drove my rail too rough. Guess not. Smile

I looked at it and shed a tear she is still full of all the crap from moving, in fact all three cars are still full.

lots and lots of grinding with a wire wheel on the new IRS rear end. Then I put two coats of primer on, tomorrow will put on a few coats of flat black Cool

Ordered poly trailing arm bushings, CV boots, brake lines, and CV grease.

We'll see what else needs replacing once I pop those drums off
