    I\'m dragging my a$$ at work...

    I have been up with my hubby until 3am everynight working on something! Man! Am I tired! Okay...first, we bought a '79 blazer on sunday. My sister-in-law is trying to sell her truck (2x4-yuck!) and it decided that anything that can go wrong will go wrong. Anyway...most of this week we have been f*cking around with this truck. You see, the truck diseils when you shut it off. We finally just replaced the carborator and it still does it! We've messed with the timing and everything, so we just said, f*ck it and are selling it as it is. It's just one of those trucks that just don't appreciate getting worked on, ya know? There is no easy quick fix for anything on that stupid thing. Changing a head light was a problem one time! Anyway... we finally got that truck out of our hair and now we are getting to work on my blazer (yes...mine...not my hubby's....mine!) and it's just wonderful! The headers come off easy, the new ones go on easy, the new carb goes on easy...just a fun truck to work on. We are playing catch up cause the other truck [censored ] put us behind and the exhaust shop is going out of business so we have to hurry, but monday or tuesday I should be cruzin in a stock blazer that will soon be lifted, but it will run like a champ and sound sweet! (yawn) Man! I'm tired but it'll be worth it!

    Re: I\'m dragging my a$$ at work...

    Just wondering what the idle is set at on the truck that is dieseling? That is the most probably cause if you replaced the carb(and sensors???) and the timing is on. I suppose it could be overheating and is hot or you could of gotten some bad gas, but both long shots.
    Sounds like me... up till 3 or 4 am and then to class at 9 and then right in to the shop working on crap till 10pm and then homework... I sometimes wonder if it is worth getting out of mechanics if I have to do this LOL.

    Sounds like the trucks this guy I know keeps getting stuck with...he had an '86 C20 that was a piece to begin with, running on 7 cylinders when he bought it, deiseled a lot, he put new tires on it, and on the way home it threw a rod. Then he got a '78 K10 in November and hes driven it to school 8 days so far. It has no cab mounts, no bolts or anything, got clutch replaced, replaced carb, leaks oil really bad, new fuel pump, and he bent the flywheel somehow. He did a compression test on it and it was like 130. I told him he should sell it, but he thinks its a good truck. I was on a farm for 22 years and has 100K on it.

    Re: I\'m dragging my a$$ at work...

    I hear ya...100%!!! Let someone else deal w/ it [​IMG] You are talking to a guy who found out this morning he has to drive 3 hrs to go drop a motor in my bro's piece of trash car this weekend, which is my only one off this month[​IMG], but at least I'm getting axles for my truck in the process [​IMG] But that car ain't worth it... Plus I just got done putting in a $5,000 mopar cardboard box motor (yeah... no crate... it came in a cardboard box hahaa)in a bucket w/ no frt clip or outer fenders... JUNK! But looks like you'll be cruising in style soon... that the new one you picked up? Ad paint and some lift and the [​IMG] LOL. Then you can fight w/ the hubby over who drives what [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] I love playing w/ the faces LOL

    Re: I\'m dragging my a$$ at work...

    I'm draggin my a$$ at work too ,but not from working on a truck. My husband works second shift and I work first shift so the only way we can spend any time together is if I stay up till real late after he gets home. But I do remember the many nights of being up real late working on a truck. Try adding a major move to that equation. That equals very big headaches. We did that just 9 months ago. We were trying to get his truck finished before we left and well...it never happened. Now he is parting out the truck because we would end up spending too much money to make it pass the state inspection here. We also would never be able to get out of it what we put in to it other wise he would just sell the whole thing. I tried to tell him that before he bought the d*^n thing. But what the H**l do I know I'm a woman.LOL! ! ! Most men don't think we are smart enough to figure these kind of things out.Oh well...Life will go on. Have fun with your new toy. The hubby doesn't know it yet...but I plan on him putting a Blazer together for me in the near future.

    Well if your sleeplessness is affecting your beer drinking,you should be happy. That means you should have more money to spend on your truck or on the wife. I'm sure she could use some new accessories for her wardrobe.LOL! ! !

    Re: I\'m dragging my a$$ at work...

    I can see that I am going to be in the poor house for a while. It's hard enough with one project let alone two. I think I will through some mags in the fireplace and get the marshmollows out. It will be a whole lot cheaper and alot less headaches.

    Wow! You're so tired it affects your beer drinking? My husband thinks it's illegal to be that tired! Ha ha!!! Magazines being held at ransom are only a last resort. Just realize your screwing up big time if it gets to that point! ha ha!!!
