    It kills me how there is so much crap shoved into the left side of this engine (ac pump, IAC, spark distributor, cold start valve, WUR, etc) but hardly ANYTHING on the right side!

    Yeah you answered this for me. I'm just writing history at this point. I'm behind on my log entries.

    Tam's leather reconditioning kit showed up so she is all excited.
    It looks like the gray is a pretty good match.

    No work on the car tonight because I visit inmates in jail on Friday nights. This is something I thoroughly enjoy. I would encourage anyone to volunteer to do this.

    We are in RI for a race this weekend so probably no work getting done on the car until maybe Monday.

    It's through my church. So supposed to be a Bible study but it turns into whatever it is supposed to be. I bring them books, journals, etc. They are really happy just to talk to someone from the outside. If they want to make a change in thier life we try to help them with that.

    We are back from RI. My wife and her friend ran a 10 mile race. We visited the Newport car museum on the way home. Quite a collection. Sadly no Deloreans though. Here's a few of the pictures I took.

    We worked on the car tonight from 5-8P. Tam worked on one of the seats.



    I scoped out the situation with my O2 sensor and the factory wire. The wire pokes out through in a bad location. The O2 sensor wire didn't quite reach.

    Josh from D-Ind said that I can just extend the O2 sensor wire. I decided to look in the car. There was some extra wire in the car so I moved more wiring out through the tub.



    I really don't like where this wire comes out through the tub. I may drill a new hole at some pont.

    Next I jumped back into the fuel system. I ended up just completely removing the accumulator. Horrible job by the way.

    The fittings on the end looked perfectly fine.

    I put some anti-sieze on the threads and tightened the fitting down as tight as i dared to.
