A couple folks have asked why I haven’t updated the blog.
Short answer is lack of interest and sloth – I won’t bother offering any false reasons.
So here’s a little update.
First, the Buick. In March 2010 bought a 1998 LeSabre from a guy the next town over, with a seized engine but in otherwise good condition. Bought a JY engine with 92K on it from Wade at Low Mileage Engines, but had little time or motivation to deal with it due to Covid restrictions and workload. By July I had the “new” engine resealed with all new gaskets and seals, except the head gaskets. I removed the old engine…
New engine in and running around 30 August 2010…
And it runs pretty well.
It’s been a really great car – great fuel mileage, starts good in bitter cold weather, and it’s really comfortable.
Today I installed power wire for my amateur radio equipment.
It looks like I’ll need a new engine in the Ford F-150. More on that soon.
