Grady rode in the front seat (shhh don’t tell mom) to his soccer match. Thanks for reading and Happy Rovering.
I found a loose wire and was not sure where it went. It had an odd funnel shaped plastic bit attached. After a bit of looking I found the sensor it went to. It was the oil pressure switch. I was not sure if oil would come out when I removed it. It didn’t. I[…]
|I loved the lines.
High on a hill east of Guthrie.
Mrs. Okierover and I love a good road trip. So when our oldest daughter (Fireball) told us our oldest grandchild (Pistol, aka Tater) was cheering in Guthrie, Oklahoma, we had to go. Guthrie holds a special place in our family’s history. Fireball was proposed to in this city by our now son-in-law J-man.
From our home in Norman, Guthrie is a solid one hour drive on the interstate. The first grade football game began at 0830. This meant both Fireball and her brood would need to roll out of their racks around 0630 in order to be more or less on time for the game. It’s no small task to haul a 6, 4, and 9 month old anywhere let alone at 0630. I’ve done it, alone, with only 6$(US) in my pocket, so I know. (A story for another time.)
I am not fond of “rolling out” at 0730 on my only “sleep in” day of the week. Add driving an hour on the interstate on a OU home football game weekend. Not fun. So I ponied up the money for us to stay in Guthrie over night. The grand kids had never stayed in a hotel so we knew they would have fun. […]
I was privileged enough to take my grand daughter, we’ll call her Pistol, to her first cheerleading camp in Newcastle. The lack of an air bag in the 1993 Range Rover affords her the ability to ride in the front seat. She cheekily borrowed a pair of sunglasses to complete her look. Her mom, Fireball,[…]
I don’t have 1 million Facebook Fans….Land Rover USA does. And to celebrate that, they made a video. A video that I submitted a picture for and since you are reading this…yes, our picture made into the video! The original post was a post about my grand kids and their fondness for playing in the[…]
I’m pretty sure that should be dry. Look what I found. No, not the rust on the splash guard, I expected to see that. The left front brake caliper is leaking. I’ve been hearing a pop on that side ever since I replaced the left rear brake caliper. I was just about ready to send[…]
Red path was the F4 May 20th tornado. Green was the F5 from May 3rd, 1999. Several of you have emailed to check on us. That really means a lot to us. Thank you. Me and all mine are safe.My oldest daughter (#1) went over to a friend of our’s home. They have a safe[…]
Finally I have a Garage Day! The weather is cooperating and my schedule is clear. I am asking no sympathy for my schedule I do it to myself. I took the Range Rover to Dibble, Oklahoma to watch my grand daughter play T-ball. I love the two lane highways in Oklahoma and this was an[…]
196,000 miles out of one fuel pump. That’s pretty good. But as you have read in previous posts it was time for a new pump. Let’s first sort out the process for testing the fuel pump. Checking for fuel at the fuel rail was first. I disconnected the fuel line from the fuel rail. Remove[…]
It was a lovely day today. It was lovely right up to when the Range Rover decided I’d gone far enough with these ignition components. I stopped at the post office in Newcastle and when I came out lots of turning over, not so much spark. I figured it was the coil. Interestingly enough there[…]
