When Zip-ties Attack

A few weeks ago I complained about warning labels on everything these days.

I guess they are needed. Because someone thought the Zip-tie on the Oil Pump pickup was the correct way to install it to the Oil Pump.

Protesting Near Madison

That is it. I can't take it any longer. I am protesting near Madison. You heard me right! I am going to protest this atrocity! It should not stand any longer. For far to long the people have been oppressed by this scourge! Who will stand with me? Who will join me in defeating this menace?

No one should suffer at the hands of the the lower intake gaskets of the 3100 and 3400 V6 GM engines?

Join me now, stand up and stop this evil before it destroys engines everywhere! If we join together and replace each and every lower intake set that leaks externally or internally...or both...we can save the 60 Degree V6 from a sure death.

/sarcasm post

//smile, it will help you get through it all.

///how am I near Madison? Mazo is 20 miles West.

Purple Haze of Kuwait

Not many know this so I am letting the cat out of the bag but my brother Dan is in Kuwait at this time and he managed to find a used car lot in, if my memory serves, in Salmiya, Kuwait. Above is one of the many cars he checked out.

Every American Muscle car is under 20K, this includes the full line of 2010 models. Dan mentioned that the 2010 'Vette was 18K. The Euro sports cars are all under 30K except the two Porsche, they are both 35K.


In our short conversation Dan went on to explain the street racing scene in Kuwait makes ours look pretty lame. three wide, three deep full throttle in traffic during the day. The best racing takes place after Midnight and goes til 3am.

Nope, doesn't work on Sebring's.

For those wondering. I was inspired by the VW ad.

The Best Intentions

Sometimes people have them. The best intentions, but sometimes they just end in failure. This picture above is a example. A remote start system that from the looks of it was a nice install. Until I peeled the yellow tape back. Wire loosely wrapped around wire. A intermittent electrical gremlin waiting to occur. Which it was, random no starts with the remote and with the key in the ignition and trying it the normal way. Still confirming I don't have any other ghosts hidden but I think squaring away the wiring will solve the issues.

Still, good intentions. I used to wire like this, loooong ago in my high school days putting speakers in trunks. Just twist 'em up and go. Then always go back to fix the problems caused when bumps and vibration start loosening things up. Lesson learned then for me, hopefully to be learned for this owners installing techniques.
