Last week we had to put a new second-hand camshaft in my car. My friend from down the shore, Blaine came and put in on. He knows a whole lot more than I do so he did all the work (with another fellow) and I just held the light. We started at about 9 o'clock and got finished roughly around 11 pm.
Another problem arose. The oil was getting into the radiator and water from the radiator was getting in the oil pan. I found out by looking at the oil dipstick and looking in the radiator. The head wasn't torqued down properly. I had to torque it down. So now it works - for how long I don't know!!
The next job is a motor job - but I have the carport roof first to make it strong enough to hold the bloody motor. More adventures !
