    Just remember to prime the motor before you start it. I like to put a mechanical oil pressure gauge on on a fresh motor so that when it is primed and first run I know I have good oil pressure. Once you know you have good oil pressure you can remove the mechanical gauge and go back to the stock gauges. You can get a cheepo mechanical from any parts store for a few bucks and it is definitely worth the piece of mind in my opinion.

    OP, if you really want to get Vinnie back for the T-handle comment, try this:

    Tell him that flaw in his paint is driving you nuts (I know of no such flaw). He will spend days looking all over his car. Eventually, he will be standing on his head and holding a magnifying glass. He will find SOMETHING! At that point in time, he will begin to worry and even loose sleep. Before you know it, there will be a new thread about another new paint job on the sport (for a flaw that NOBODY could have ever noticed). Lol!

Soon though, it will be warm(er), and then I'll be too busy doing other farm crap to even think about cars. I ought to sell them, and forget about a fast fun car.


    And I could also wear women's clothes...because that will also make me a little bitch. LOL


    Hope to make some progress on my engine soon..wanna get this sucker going!

    I think this is for a different kind of forum. Is there a forum for country singer look-a-likes in drag?

    Probably...LOL.

    I don't wear women's clothes, but I have been told I resemble a country singer...

    I saw you on the "Show us your mug" thread. Now I am picturing Kenny Chesney in a mini-skirt....EWWW!

    There's this female I know...she says I resemble Chesney, as well. Not my speed though, I'm far more into early-mid Motley Crue, Def Leppard, and other '80s rock. LOL.

    Seether ain't bad, and I loved Audioslave.

    Hard to see music in black and white terms though. If I like a song, I like a song. Hard to categorize so many bands as this rock, or that rock.

    Modern mainstream country though? I detest that f*cking crap. I'm a traditionalist in that sense...
