Almost There… Nearly Out of Time

At this point we have less than a week until the 24 Hours of Lemons Sears Pointless and the car still doesn’t run. At this point failure is not an option. If I can’t make it run today, and make the tranny go into at least 1, 2 and 3 there is no time. I could swap the back up motor back into it, but no way we’re swapping the C4 back in. Its firing, but not quite running. There is some sort of tight spot right at TDC, but it can’t be a valve because it is tight no matter which way I rotate the crank. I imagine some bit of dust shield is rubbing on the flywheel for some reason.

Plus, I’m almost out of beers.


Dark days indeed.
