Oh, it runs. It's just generating about 10" of manifold vacuum and I still haven't sorted out why. I've got a smoke machine coming in today so I can do some testing with that over the weekend. If that doesn't produce an obvious leak, I'll move on to a compression or leakdown test on the assumption I've got a valvetrain problem.

@fastpakr I hope you get sorted out. There are a few things I’d like to get done for the meet but there is too much month at the end of my money. So, other than necessities, she’ll have to run as is.

I haven’t logged into this site in like 7+ years and I was planning on going to the badlands this fall anyways.
I might just have to bring my 2.3T bronco.
You have a new one?!

No, just a Frankenstein of an 89

Our off-road gathering in Attica Indiana is coming up in a month. We need to start inviting and reminding our friends to come out for the weekend. Regardless of what they're driving.

Whelp, we're not gonna make it.

Fiance needs a new car, we'd feel bad leaving the puppy behind considering he's so young, and I really really need to finish my damn wagon build this year. The time we were gonna take off for the trip would put too much of a squeeze on things.

Next year!

My credo
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
No reservations for tent camping. Might be good to call and see how late you can check in. There were campers coming in pretty late last year. So it shouldn't be a problem unless you're talking about after midnight. But call to make sure.

Last year we basically took a corner of the campground so anyone coming could join in somewhere between us. We didn't have electric though. If you want a site with electric I'd reserve a site. @85_Ranger4x4 could probably tell you more about that.
