1-owner. Nice find!

You should go out and look at it now.

You might be able to explain your situation to the Seller. They may not be in a rush to see some high school kid driving off with their Family Car.

You could work out a selling price, and maybe even ask if he will hold onto it with a deposit that would go towards the purchase price - like within 6-months.

Why? Because we all know how often Pathys come along that your wife is going to approve of. Right?

Did some towing. A 6x12 trailer full to the gills with wood. It pulls pretty good. Sucks down fuel though. Got to 204F water temp with it and its getting hot out. Not too bad for an old Hardbody!

Not too bad at all. Just wondering if anyone has seen these new LED headlights. Only one chip, but it's a big one. And no ballast needed, no special wiring.

HERE.

I'm not a fan of putting non halogen bulbs in halogen housings due to variances in construction of the bulb. If its not right it blows your beam to hell.

It's back on the road. All things considered the job went very well, except for 2 things:

1. I was a dumbfuck and put the spark plug wires on backwards when I put the new distributor cap on, causing it to not start. I should've listened to your advice, JP.

2. Rockauto sold me a faulty thermostat that doesn't like opening. Although technically that's on the manufacturer, not them. I'm not going to bother trying to return it. No point in paying shipping twice on a $9 part. I went down to advance and got another one. It's fine now.

I drove it about 15 miles afterwards and it seems to be running just fine. I took it up a nice long hill and the temp gauge never went above 1/3 of the way. No leaks as far as I can tell and the dreaded rattle is GONE!!!

Rockauto.com doesn't always take returns anyway.

So, do you still have all those new parts on order for the timing chain job?

All the other parts I ordered are fine. I actually spent a little extra this time to get components that are sourced from Japan (except for the thermostat that was made in the USA, go figure).
