Sounds like that motor was built loose or they lined up all the rings (yep, seen that).

As to smog compliant, that normally means a "closed system" meaning the oil vent would be a no go, but should be OK with the cap when needed.

If it is your vehicle, have it towed to your mech, not "their" mech. Sure their mech wants wants keep going, but if he is just their stooge it could show a pattern.

Look at the bearings, if shot replace the motor. Plus you will have the removed parts to show what the oil did.

Unless your motor had a major fail they have nothing. You would expect them to try to blame anything but their work.

200K is nothing on motors now, even worn bearing don't get warn in 4 days!

Have it analyzed and get low mile motor dropped in and sue them. If it has diesel or other bearing material in it you are golden!

Put the skeg kit on it, feels solid. Now to fix the trim switch, that is on the bench now.

Going to Australia is on my bucket list, but not for work!

My feet and back are sore, did most of the fence structure today with the neighbors help. I do not recommend using the post foam. Several of the post moved during the curing, some up and over. I think it would work well for holes that are bored true with no taper. The stuff hardens so fast it pulls from the posts and does not spread on the top of the holes. 2 of the post we had to shim to get the polls straight. 2 were filed on the top with cement because of the gaps and 1 we just filled with cement. It is not a clean run for the fence though. The 1st 25ft are metal polls for building an overhang, then another 50 back to the shed that is 2ft higher than the yard grade with shrubs. Should have it done by the end of the week.

Jon, I don't rough it as I used to but I still go to them all. Next weekend is an advance camp at the Fairgrounds with a sleepover. Friday night will be at 6 flags. I did the mats and cots, now I am an air mattress guy.  Schnapps also seems to find a way into my co-co.

Last Sat we had fun at the rock climbing place.

I hated that program. Ca still sends my a letter every year for my El Camino wanting me to junk it. Then the classics they utterly destroyed without a thought. They had to pour a solution in the motor to lock it up!


We have a chance to even get a Rep Gov this time in Ca. Polls are getting closer but still an uphill battle. Brown's policies are so stupid like the movie 2012 is happening.

Yep, Trump is a winner and his policies are helping everyone.

I get that towing real light but not heavy stuff.

My tunes suck right now. Reloaded the Rob DSP5 and it just missing something and get 12mpg around town. I run the edge 125 and get 15-16 in town and 22 on the highway.

My tires came in so I need to get the lift on and the re-gear done asap.

Yep, scammers are easy to see normally. Had a few tire kickers when I sold the blazer.

I made sure I had 8ft for mine for plywood and 2x4's. Hated when they got stuck on the ceiling.

The liftmaster 8500 series just needs a few inches to mount.

Oh thermal would be great, but the price really goes north!

All this digital stuff is really coming of age, would like to see the thermal prices drop like the scopes.

Maybe just get it fixed (need the car right?) and hand them the bill. With what you have in hand it would be a slam dunk in small claims.

Personally, I would not texture a garage, but I like the idea of grey. White would reflect light better.

I would love a big/tall garage door.

They had a ceremony in Sac with fireman representing the ones lost climbing towers in their honor. All the fireman carried a name of one lost and their job.

Funny, I was on vacation at the time and watched on TV. Same as when the 87 earthquake happened and lost my brother.

Not to bad so far, but there had to be 1 hole that had cement in it! We had offset the first post to avoid this very thing.

About 3 hours into that 1 hole now, using the HF Bauer hammer on it now.

Working on a fence that I tore down with the room addition. Dang wood has gotten pricey (fire and demand)

Trying this new foam stuff. 15 sec to mix, 15 sec to pour, build in 2 hours. $10 a bag vs about 5-6 for cement but little mess or work.
