So, I have been a little lazy the past few days. Gimme a break, those beers are really cold and the recliner is really comfy.
Anyways, told David to bring up his truck to the driveway and we will dink around with the battery and stuff. Well, he comes in and says its totally dead, no lights no nuttin.
Siiiighhhhhhh......My first thought was that there must be some sort of drain on the battery even though everything is shut off. I had visions of going thru the electrical and trying to find a short or some shit. I hate electrical.
Went out there and showed him how to clean the terminals and got them all shiny. Tightened down the cables nice and snug and BAM! She fired right up.
Sooooo.....then got her all warmed up for some night driving.
Got the new headlights all adjusted and dam, they are just simple halogens but made a helluva difference!
I have a couple of questions about a few simple issues.
The electric choke on the weber works just fine buuuutttttt, it likes to stick at hi idle for the 1st few miles of a trip. Typical shit right? Is there a fix to that? Is it the throttle cable need to be lubed or is it something I can do on the choke itself? I don't know cuz 521 haz manual choke.
It didn't do it tonight but, it likes to diesel. Is that a minor timing issue or something in the carb? Nothing terrible just annoying.
Other than that, I am pretty jelly of this truck. L20 + weber + peanut head + 5 spd + 4.11s = pure sex to me. Can't wait to get the L20 dropped into the 521. It will be pretty much the same except 389s.
