We leave later today, will be in BG tomorrow.
hopefully we will be in the campground by lunch tomorrow setting up the tents and all of the other crap.
Well i just drove to o'Reilly's in the next town over, bout 20 miles away, and when i got off the interstate, the oil pressure dropped to about 2lbs holding around 25lbs driving. Got back to the shop and pulled in and the gauge dropped again and the lifters started going wild. I've got a 283 sitting here that isn't assembled, now what am i gonna do.
what's the oil look like?
Normal, no glitter. Filter is full of what looks like moly lube. Gonna try that before i pull the pan
Changed the oil and filter, fired it up and jumped to 50lbs, I'll run it some and change it again tmrw.
IF you are talking to me Thanks
Got an electrical problem. Looks like we will leave tomorrow in the daily driver.
I have a friend driving his 47 Chev Delivery in from Colorado.
He will be here this afternoon.
We will be there Friday/Saturday
I,m not sure what I,m driving yet
If you guys can,,,,,,Lloyd,,,,and Enloe,,,,,post some pics of your hangout if possible Friday or early Saturday.
I will be walking on a cane,,,,,and it might save me a few hundred steps or more,,,LoL.
I will be looking for Lloyds wagon and Enloes vette,,,,that should help some .
Wicked 55. Looks mean. Have fun brother!
Hope you get to hang with these guys. Two of the finest on the HAMB. Have great time.
Loaded and ready to get to the campground
Good looking outfit. Safe travels
I'll be there tomorrow.Hopefully on the corner again ,maybe a few feet off the road. Won't be the usual white el Camino this time.Look for red and white elky. everyone have safe travels.
I'll be there, hopefully in my car. Last thing i wanna do is have to drive my late model. Headed to the machine shop first thing in the morning to clean the oil pan and pickup, grab a new oil pump and gasket, and bust ass to get it together.
Lloyd, if they have a one piece pan gasket that fits your engine get it. Whole lot easier to install laying on your back.
He told me that's what he has on the shelf.
I will look for you guys. A buddy and I are going in a late model OT. Plan to get to Bowling Green sometime around noon on Friday, go to Corvette museum, then Drags all day Saturday.
Sorry to hear that Phil

We are in the campground as well. We are behind one of the buildings. I have all of the flaps partially open on my tent and the fan blowing and I am kicked back on my cot
