One sure sign you are a gear head is. You have nightmares that involve your boat, engine.. etc. No hot babes, no strange twisted trips. just engine problems. And an entire evening of trying to repair a distributer? What the hell? And I am writing this fast and early, because it woke me up and if I don’t get it down, its gone.
NOW remember this is a dream, so it wonders.
I took a pal out for a boat ride during lunch at work before a meeting. We were riding along to a mall. The boat was running a tad strange so while my pal was in the fast food place picking up something I thought I will tweak the engine.
I found the problem. The distributor cap was off. And I recall thinking, How in the hell did it even run?
So I put the cap back on and it wouldn’t fit, I noticed the rotor was sitting up, so I pulled it out, and some little round magnets plopped out and disappeared into the bilge. YES I KNOW! I TOLD YOU IT S A DREAM.
So you know when you pull on something and the spring in it flies out. Like that. So I recall thinking, ahhhh ship.
This is just getting worse. There I am in my boat in a parking lot, and my buddy is coming out with the food for everyone. And I have parts from the distributor flying out.
Okay, now I am pulling out pieces and trying to use my fat fingers to fix it. And one of the parts. A brass one. plops into the ground, which is now grass. I know that part is a critical part. And while I am at it, I get pissed and yank the distributor.
There I am sitting in the grass, putting a distributor together and somehow have double the parts. And I have lost track where they all go.
Okay, then I get it together and go to put it back in to make it back to work for the meeting, and now my boat is a car. A Corvair! And the distributor is in the speaker area behind the back seat, and I cant find where it goes in. I find a hole, and start tearing out all this original interior material to put the distributor.
Now as I am ripping the interior out, I have to pee. Like real bad, I dream I am peeing in the parking lot. But the erge is still there. And then it happened.
I woke up. And had to pee. The End. WTF!
