I hope he is right too, but personally after my car has been down when I get it running again I like to go for a very spirited drive.

Hey guys, thanks for your concern, especially Ken for texting me. Last week was finals week and between school, work

The car is running alright, but there's a weird noise when the engine is under load that I'm afraid might be blow by, I'll upload vids one of these days, but I have no Internet at home and my laptop is a POS.

Won't be doing that for a couple days because somehow the cast iron thermostat housing on the truck broke when I was replacing the thermostat and none of the local parts suppliers can even order one.

Glad you're back on line Chip! Anxious to hear/see the video. Did you space the ring gaps at 120 degrees from each other?
