kicked the blue car out of the shop, pulled the pan on the v8 car again, replaced line pressure solenoid (I think it was the only one that didn't get replaced with the trans r&r), perhaps that will fix my bizarre transient line pressure issues. otherwise it's el pump-o (which leaks), and an out of body experience again.

Wish I could make it. My dad (77 y/o) just got himself flung off a horse and is a bit busted up (cracked C2, broken scapula, several broken ribs, collapsed lung, cracked femur) so we're heading down to the farm to help out with all the freezing weather prep stuff that needs to happen that he can't do.

Don't piss off Betty so the spring SE can happen!

Thanks again for your hospitality Kenny. Had a blast, got to learn a bit about my car and even fixed a few bugs it had on the way back. Lets do this again in spring!

Well that was prophetic.. lol. Anyway, some minor rules adjustments, couple finished house projects, and it'll be all good. Spring planning to start now so as to get things set and the event on the calender.

The interior pieces helped, but the vacuum bits were different. Think I need a 940 or late 740 type ::shrugs:: Thanks again though

ah. yeah that car is probably in no condition to pull completely apart to get the vacuum lines. the slider style heat/cold/blend was also replaced with an electronic motor in the 940s iirc.

Spring time sounds like a good time for an Alabama trip. It would be great to see y'all again.
