After about 5 months of sitting in the driveway, I finally got my K5 back out on the road today. Broke shock mounts is what took it out. During the downtime, I welded the mounts, take out the rearend and cleaned, painted it. Replaced battery and cables and put in a chip. Threw on some Rancho 9000's on the back. Drove around all day, don't think I have a good ground and with the chip, the engine is pinging and hard starting. Talked to my chief mechanic, said timing may already be too far advanced for the chip or it's the gas. Also had some temp gauge problem maybe related to the ground and still have an oil gauge to fixed. No matter how long and hard, the work is never done, but damn, it felt nice to have A/C and 350 cubic inches to get up and go with. Now get the Heep sold and have more money for new shocks up front.
