Sorry, Bill. After working my tail off in the yard, decided to chill and watch the Nats game. I know you'll be disappointed not to get the pics, but if you tune in to the local news tonight, I'm sure they'll cover it!

Did you guys get Kent's truck running on 8 cylinders?

No love yet. Kent needs high pressure fuel supply and return. The fuel rail is no good and the sensors need hook up.

I have to give a huge shout out to Mr. Bill Adams for swinging by this morning to help me figure out the mess of wiring that laid before me in my engine bay. Bill is definitely the "3.9 Whisperer", as Lav called him. I also have to thank Lav for lending me his 90 so I could see what a running trucks wiring was supposed to look like. Jason even stopped by this morning as well to lend a hand. Thank you guys for your help. It might be a photo finish, but I could potentially be driving the 110 to HH this Thursday if I get the fuel issues sorted out, and rig up some cold air intake system by then. Fingers crossed. Also a big thank you goes out to Robert Davis, who is sending a shroud and fan. This truck is really turning into something great due to the overwhelming generosity from the members of this amazing community. I am constantly blown away by it all.

-Kent

I am out this month. I have been out of town most of this month and I am still putting the front axle back on my Rover. Plus - I need to get things ready for the ROAV Summer Swap meet this weekend.

I know all of you guys have a pile of parts in the garage that you want to pass along to make room for new parts @@ cough - Pedro - cough @@.

It looks like Sarek Autowerk from Richmond is bringing a few kegs of beer to share, too. It is the NOVA HH picnic that we have always wanted .....
Beer , rovers, and parts swapping - just like Kilroys.

Does anyone have a M12 1.75 die they could bring to HH? I can do the thread cleaning in the parking lot and you can take back home.
