Things are a bit fluid for me right now, but I should be able to make it.

101 Work Happy Hour

Okay, looks like we are on for this Thursday (Aug 17th) at 6:30. Our house is located at 5115 9th St N in Arlington. We will provide plenty of cold beer, probably Miller Lite, but feel free to bring your own.

I will talk with Robbie and see what tools we may need, that we don't already have.

Should be a good time.

I'll be there with sawzall in hand. I'd think that we won't need more than basic tools, a spare coil, some wire and connectors and a voltmeter. Might want to put some drygas into it beforehand and change out the fuel filter.

I'm itching to see this thing, but will be out of town. Will catch the next one, or maybe you'll be triving it to the next happy hour

yep, was a runner when he first got it. actually took it down to lake anna for a weekend. shortly after, just stopped. at that time, thought maybe it was a fuel issue. he pulled the tank and it was fairly corroded, so cleaned the tank out, confirmed that the pump worked, but still nothing. not sure if he checked the lines? but it isn't even sputtering for a start. just turns. can't remember if we had spark or not? last time I looked was probably a year ago+. i do remember one of the wires going to the coil (I think) heated up extremely quickly to a very high temp, so i was thinking a short somewhere possibly.

Good to see/meet every one again... If you want to mess with the 101 some more this weekend let me know and I'll bring over a soldering iron and we can see if we can get that converter box working long enough for you to drive till you can get a replacement or at least get it running to see if there is some other issues that need to be fixed...

See you guys for the Happy Hour on the 29th.

I'll be there.

Also, over the past few months some guys have been bringing their "significant others". I just wanted to say that this is encouraged, at least by me. So there goes another excuse not to be there.

Greg.
