Yesterday we featured some cool Tonka trucks. And a Road trip from the Kitchen to the Living room. Well, as I was writing the story I got a call for a Hail Mary spontaneous road trip.
4AM drive to Katzs Marina and VanNess Engineering to get Jimmys 430 ready for summer and to visit Scarlet who was just flipped. We also took the opportunity to have the W tuned up for the summer as well. Woohooo! ROAD TRIP!
Then off to VanNess which is about 45 minutes away.
And of course, why we came. TO start up and test the 430 Lincoln Engine. Jimmy had replaced a head and manafolds. Dave was checking out the cooling system and making sure she is also ready for summer. Turns out she needed two new impellers. Good thing we did this. And yes, Impellers should be replaced yearly.
And then back home.
All in all a great day with some pals, and getting stuff all tuned up for the Summer. Thanks to Alan and Jara at Katzs, and the VanNess team for a great day! The 430 is going to Katzs to be installed into Scarlet.
