…the Big White Bus has recently been leaving a nice puddle of oil when she comes to a stop. I know all the jokes about British cars and leaks. If you don’t see a leak, it’s probably dry. Well I don’t care for leaks.
The Big White Bus has been idling a little rough lately. I will look in to that a little more as we get closer to S.C.A.R.R.
I worked on a new video today. I swapped a CV joint and some seals. I’ll get it up as soon as I have it done. Here’s a teaser. Otherwise not much is going on. I have the gas mileage up to 13.5 mpg on average. I did learn today from the manager of the[…]
If you read “Sometimes Things Don’t Go Your Way” you saw that I thought I had a failing water pump. The “new” water pump was only a few months old so it was quite out of the ordinary for it to be failing. I took the Range Rover to Mickey’s Garage on Monday to have[…]
Over the past weekend I stopped at Lowe’s to pick up paint for my Coleman Stove Project which was part of my gearing up for S.C.A.R.R. When I came out this Discovery was sitting next to me. With the parking lot nearly empty parking directly next to me meant this guy must be an enthusiast. So[…]
I can’t remember if I had blogged about getting an in the floor tornado shelter. In any event I did. I had ulterior motive. And the picture at left demonstrates it. It made a perfect oil change pit. I am standing on the floor of the shelter. Every thing was in reach. Once I drained[…]
Another Saturday, another Garage Day. Wrenching on a old truck with your best friends in the middle of rural farm country is as American as America gets. This time the patient was Titanium Hitch’s 1998 F-150. According to TH the truck had been running pretty rough. It was in bad need of a tune up.[…]
My good friend and resident evil scientist the +Evil German Dude (EGD) announced we were having a Garage Day at his house this past Saturday. For once I didn’t have anything Land Rover related for him to assist me with. I’m sure he and the former Titanium Hitch were quite surprised as we normally have something[…]
I changed the oil today on the Range Rover Classic. It was past due. I also gave her a run down the street. I was quickly harkened back to the days of my youth. The growl from the steering pump reminded me of my 1973 Ford Maverick Grabber. It was always leaking steering fluid. And[…]
I got some happy time with my Discovery yesterday. Several things had piled up and she demanded a few hours of quality time. The weather was predicted to cooperate and it did quite well. It was a pleasant 55F outside. Which was nice compared to the 10F we woke up to the day before. So[…]
