    man guys, I can't hardly believe I had an 'uneventfull' day!

    took the hoist back to autozone, and told the guy he had to replace the fan (only peice hurt by the fall, inspected the frame REAL good)...

    anyway, they guy was like 'I'd like to see how this lift actually broke etc.'... was happy to replace the fan until he found out he didn't have one... (coudn't get it as a good discount)...

    he's being a real turd and I told him, you are d*mn lucky nobody was hurt. I stuck to my guns and told him either he could refund the lift and replace the fan for give me fair compensation for it, or I'd load up the lift and my lawyer would call him...

    told him the decision was his... he keeps being a turd, and calls the main office. I think they chewed his butt big time because he was incredibly nice after that...

    he gave me 40 bucks for the fan, and refunded the lift.

    I borrowed a hoist from a friend (who told me he has one he used on diesels engines...). it is a lot nicer lift then the other one I bot / returned from autozone. I'l buy another hoist at a later time.

    hey, thanks a lot pugs! LOL...

    well actually I'm really hoping that my luck is changing... that kid ditched me today, and I only got about 3 1/2 hours in on the thing. I had to work on a bunch of my customers stuff today, and fight with autozone for a refund on the hoist etc...

    I did get the valve covers painted, the lifters in, push rods, rockers on and valves adjusted, and I finished grinding out the top of my intake so the 454 TBI could open up. there is still a lip on the intake, but I am afraid that if I take it down anymore I might get into one of the water passages etc. (that and it would be a definate job for a machine shop, which I'd take the time to do, but I don't have a reliable vehicle to do it with)

    I'm gonna work on cleaning and painting this baby tomorrow, and get as much together as I can... then I'm gonna go fishing on saturday, and hopefully get this in saturday night or monday.

    Hrm...ok...your luck is changing...just like mine. On Thursday I was able to call up my boss at the crap job and tell em I ain't coming in cuz I found a job that pays double what I made there. I already started the new job and how nice it is not having a billion people trying to shoot you and steal your stuff!!

    More good luck to you solowookie....the more good you get the more I get!!

    If it wasn't for bad luck I would have no luck at all!!
