12 straight hours on the engine. everything was going well until the fuel leak.
it'll turn over, but i dunno if it'll do anything else until tomorrow.
bright side of the day: rupert has emerged, although the new crab (the strawberry that i got friday) has buried deeper. i suppose she'll come out eventually.
rupert's happy and climbing on the grape vine, he's knocked over the cholla wood already. lentil is in the water dish *feeler feeler*-ing the sea sponges.
the crabs keep me happy/sane.
i'm so tired/stressed out.
i knew from the start that it was gonna take longer than 2 days. (which actually, we've only gotten to work two full days on it, the first two days were half days)
it's just frustrating that we're so close to getting it to run and we had to leave it.
I miss the old-fashioned engines. If you had gas and spark it should run. I could understand things like rotors, condensors, points and carburetors and could work on them. The newer computer-controlled engines aren't meant for the shade-tree mechanics.
If I wasn't as blind as I am and still felt safe driving, I'd get one of these. It reminds me of an overgrown version of the Honda SL100 I had as a kid. Easy to work on.
i actually think we got the wiring right. there wasn't a lot to convert it from dual point fuel injection to multi point. we just had to get a new ecu and cross some wires and extend some and add a few pins.
the o rings on my fuel injectors are leaking, and the parts store didn't have any on hand. :\ were it not for that, i would be driving the milkcarton and raising hell around atlanta right now (assuming there's nothing else wrong after the fuel thing is fixed).
