Sorry I haven't posted in awhile, the boss(the wife) and I have had a rough winter. She had an accident in the old car and tore it and herself up pretty good, she has recovered however the old Granada is going to take a lot longer to "heal"! On a positive note, finally got project:darkHORSE and project:little_black_jett back into running order! Hoorah!
project:little_black_jett is our newest vehicle, a 2006 Chevy Cobalt LS he's(boss and her friend whom we got it from decieded it was a male car, dont ask way, trust me) not fancy or the best looking car(yet) but will be a good project to repair and improve!
project:darkHORSE is a 1996 Chevy Blazer 4dr 4wld, she now has over 150,000 miles and is on her third engine(first was my first rebuild that lasted 2 years until the harmonic balancer failed, the second was a junkyard engine that I(and my former employer) didn't check over very well, it ran just a bit over 200 miles before 3 main bearings spun, yes all 3, again a learning tool! So this winter her third transplant was installed(during which install I reinjured my recently repaired neck! Talk about having bad luck!), well I finally got it in and running correctly(timing issues, if your familiar with 4.3l vortec's you know what I mean) only to find that while the assembled engine set in storage(while I recovered from surgery) five of the lifters drained down and collapsed, yup five, so off comes the intake and new gaskets and good lifters back in. All in all had a good day at least, two hours start to finish! Gotta say old girl sounds really good at idle right now!
The posts from a few days ago are of items that will be installed to these two projects soon hopefully(need to add to the old bank account again first)!
Anyway I will be creating a few posts soon showing some of the previous work sessions on darkHORSE(a.k.a. "Goldenrod", let me know when ya get that😎), some of these will be from when I first got her until now. Thanks for being here and reading this first long post! Here is a video clip of HORSE running with the bad lifters, still sounded pretty good at the pipe!
