    Re: California Is Burning

    I am always wondering how people put up with a house fire no matter with where it is. Hurricane, Tornado, Earthquake, even some floods, there are still somethings that survive the destruction. A fire removes everything and it all has to be replaced, even down to a single item nothing remains. I see the destruction and understand what it is mostly total. Their hearts cry out for sympathy and solice, I understand, I have donated.........Jetspray

    I'm out in Santa Rosa doing restoration work.
    Still a lot of work to be done. Keep us in your thoughts and prayers.

    This one already has an upgraded Garrot turbo and bigger air intake. Other than that nothing else is planned for the engine. Its pushing 235k miles and going strong if you don't count the ps pump. As for "Stiction" I never heard of it but I'll for sure look in to it.
