Default Re: Effigy's history

Been a while. honestly haven't done much.

modern daily driver has spent the last week in the shop getting warranty repairs done so i've been driving my VR. forgot how much I love this car, even if it is freezing with no heat in Maryland winter weather :P

It's been starting and running strong, but I suspect it's only on 3 cylinders right now.. Can't really feel a drop in power, but #1 CHT is significantly lower than the other 3, so i'm thinking that cylinder is only heating up from #2 residual heat transferred through the head. I know I need to pull the plug and figure it out, just been too cold and I've been too lazy to do it..

Maybe I will in a couple of months. As of October 3rd, I'm no longer a Mass Communication Specialist for the Navy, now I'm a Machinist's Mate. I've been given orders to a ship out in San Diego and we are moving there in February. Back to warmer climates and being able to work on the car almost year round so long as i don't procrastinate..

Anyway, hope you all are well!
