New radiator, belts, hoses, thermostat, water-pump and coolant. Oh boy, now maybe no squealing belts. This caused my temp gauge to indicate higher temps, the needle goes more toward the middle rather than just north of the "C" line. So much easier to do this in the drive-way rather than road-side....

Bug spray. Lots of it. And it's gotta be the stuff that's almost 100% deet and numbs your taste buds if you get it in your mouth. The "family friendly" stuff doesn't work. Spray your clothes too, those fuckers will bite right through them. It also works well for repelling people.

I remember waking up one morning (in bone-dry Utah of all places) and seeing a pile of dead bugs an inch high at the base of the lantern.

Yeah. Lock down the tab and toss them. Get away for a while until the fogs all pass. If you want to keep out the ground-based bugs, use Ortho Home Defense and spray a deadline around the campsite.

What I did on my truck today:

They recently replaced the roofing on our townhouse. I picked up a small nail that caused a leak in the drivers' side rear tire. Fixed. Then the wife complained her Pathy's seat adjustment forward and back didn't work. I pulled the seat and inspected her rollers in the seat track. Stuck and dry. Greased and reinstalled.

I also downloaded the Owners' Manual on that 98 Pathy today. Runs 249 pages. I had to study it to figure out the cruise control, the overdrive button, and how to properly put it into 4WD. They should have offered free classes to new owners on that one. It's complicated for sure. Compass and outside temperature gauge with an ICE warning on the overhead console? 12V power source in the rear seat area?

Oh, brother.

I'm officially jealous.

The rest of the parts are supposed to show up today. The timing chain job commences after work. It should be all done by the the end of the weekend. We're going balls to the walls on this one and replacing all the cheap parts I put in it the first time time. Also going to replace the oil pump and drop the pan and replace the pickup tube seal since it's literally the only seal on the entire engine that I haven't replaced yet at least once. Since time isn't an issue it's going to sit for 24 hours to let the new RTV cure. The timing cover is starting to leak where the block and the head meet anyways.

Damn.

Great job on that.

It looks like a Store Bought item.

How does it do?

Went to leave for work and had a dead battery. I put the charger on for awhile then checked to make sure I didn't leave a light on overnight. After that I headed over to Autozone to have it tested and found out it was toast.


Yikes, it cost $173 for a new battery. It's been awhile since I had to buy one, when did they become so expensive?

Gotta do 2 tires on the sentra. $200 for tires for a $500 car because they are an odd size. Dumb



Truck will get some hot weather towing this weekend. Time to test the cooling system in 100+F weather and a trailer!

What size are those Sentra tires???

Are you still in Oregon? What part? Bend, Albany, East, Eugene, Klamath falls, Medford, the Coast, Portland, Roseburg, or Salem?
