It's a 97, and yes, I'm a maybe. A lot will depend on the GWWP project, as the masons are looking to start up again on Saturday if it heats up enough. If they do that, then I need to be around the house to supervise. Depending on when you are starting and how long you are going, I may be able to do a partial.

We will be inside a heated shop. As for tools, I will find out for certain but my expectation is that all needed tools will be available, and yet I will plan to bring my own because with few hands there may be a call for more than one tool at any time, like two people can be using a ratchet.

I am truly grateful that this sounds as fun to you guys as it does to me, and it will be a huge help to me to get this going.

I am so sorry and I'm not trying to stir up anything. I don't understand why a wrenching party is needed. It sounds like you have a heated shop and a well respected technician supervising so why complicate things by adding more hands and distraction? Just pull on the coveralls and get busy!

Ok, thanks. Its accurate that we don't want too many hands. I thought a cool way to have fun and a few guys get to take a part an engine they don't have to put back together.

Project postponed. A non movable scheduling conflict arose today. I will have a new date shortly. Sorry and I hope the new date still works.

This has really gotten me to start thinking about my car situation. The 450 is pretty much our only "reliable" transportation at this point and I have a bunch of maint items that need to be done. PHH, valve cover gasket, sticky EGR, valve stem seals, some sqeaky pulleys, new PCV, etc. It seems like with the time I have off over the holidays, it might be prudent to just tackle a headgasket as preventative (168k), and handle these other issues at the same time. My shop space sucks at the moment for sure, and I'm not in a $ place where I can just drop it off and have a shop do it all. Mechanically, nothing scares me, so debating to just jump in and do this unless someone talks me down from the ledge. I do need a better shop space tho. So depending on when you reschedule, I wonder if we can just do two at the same time?

I know someone who has killer, heated shop space and takes payment of bud light.

Behind that rough exterior he's a really good guy.....just very outspoken, that's all.
