Default Re: Schwalms

Today I yanked the engine! Today should'na happened! Almost everything went wrong! I had a hard time with the engine! It didn't want to come out The input shaft didn't want to leave the fly wheel! It fought me all the way! I finally convinced it that I was going to win this match and it surrendered. More hard times getting it into the van. I really could have used a pickup today. Again, shear bulldog determination won out and we were on our way to Schwalms. Traffic was bad! All the white knuckle people were out. That lengthened the misery! Also my left front brakes began the make the ugliest noises. Finally got there and Ora had left a short while before so Jeff helped me out. Very nice guy! Then it was back to rt 30 and we found a NAPA store and I purchased a new set of front brake pads and proceeded to change the noisy one. I didn't have all the proper tools with me so I had to improvise a little so the job took longer. But the guys in the NAPA store were very nice to us .My wife and I were soon on our way. The slowpokes had retired early and we were able to make some time. Rough day!
