Default Wrenching this weekend?

Is anyone planning on wrenching Friday night or this weekend that would welcome a straggler to hang out and help if you want? I have limited knowledge and skills, but I'm really good at getting in the way .

What are you planning to do on your 80 this weekend Nick?

Sorry, that I can't pitch-in, but we're planning to do some camping and wheeling near Yankee Hill this weekend.

No worries. Enjoy the trek! Weather looks great again this weekend.

I have a low/slightly rough idle around 400rpm once the engine warms up. I'm hoping it is just a vacuum leak that I need to track down since the wires and distributor were replaced not too long ago. I also figured I'd lend a hand or hang out while others are working to try to get more familiar with Toyotas.

Hey, thanks for the invitation. Glad you got it all working after I bailed.

What catch can/AOS are you running? I noticed it on your rig but didn't look too closely on Saturday. Last night I found my PCV hose is cracked so I'm thinking I might fab up a DIY catch can when I replace the hose.
