The air filter replacement was easier said than done unfortunately, the screws that held the cover in place were stripped and frozen in place. So I decided that I would have to cut the tops of the screws off to get to the old filter, thank goodness for my Dremel!
|Dirty, Dirty, Dirty!
Thank goodness for Napa Auto Parts, they had to order the air filter but had it in the store by about 8:30 am, so I was good to go. I replaced the old stripped screws with quarter inch screws with lock nuts, so the next time I replace the air filter, the job will be much easier.
The clean air filter and new spark plugs made the Tin Can purr like a kitten, so it was well worth all of the work for sure.
This afternoon I decided it was time to practice hooking everything up and giving it a test drive. I kept my fingers crossed as I hooked up the lights because I did not know what to expect. Everything worked perfectly thank goodness. I drove around the block and although I knew the Tin Can was back there, there was no problem pulling it.
|Ready To Roll!
Although I wish we could have headed up to a campsite tonight, the next few weekends are packed with getting ready for Christmas, so I will just have to wait until New Years. Tracy and I did get some Christmas shopping done today, unfortunately we bought gifts for each other rather than for everyone else on our list, oh well, its always easier to buy for ourselves.
I want to welcome Randy and Pam Warner of The Roadrunner Chronicles as our latest followers. I have enjoyed reading their blog and we are happy to have them on-board with our adventures. That's it for today, I hope your weekend is going great and thanks for the visit!
