Well, I'm off on a voyage to spokane. To see a team of neurologist that have gathered to poke and prod and twist and inflate my leg up.
I'm hoping they don't go all out so I can hit up the harbor freight and get a floor jack and argon regulator.
I don't get up near a hb often, 3 hours from home, but I see neurologists aaaaaalll the time.
They love to bring groups of students, tell them about a rare disease, poke prod and pinch, it is much more of a show and tell than a treatment or service of anykind. It's doubtfully any actions will be taken today, or result of this group session.

sorry forgot to tell you. :cry: When I was in Spokane HF store a few years ago, I talked to the manager and he informed me they were putting a store in the LC valley. About Fnn time.

20 minutes to get to HF ? Must of stopped by "THE" store on the way. ;)

I almost got a new jack, but they where out. I did get a argon regulator but can't get it fitted to my junk welder for like a week, waiting on a 5/8x18 to 1/8 npt adapter bushing. So I can get the gas from the bottle to the liner.

I feel ya on that. I'm doing 2 cars a month from my move to Idaho. Had a $300 day at DMV yesterday myself. Still have my Cutlass, 510, '35, wife's car, and some trailers. I guess less stuff is an option. No its not.

My citation was 45$ to transfer and licence when I was in highschool. It was going to be more, like 335, but I convinced the lady it was a passenger van, and not a truck.. and of course the sale price was on the bill of sale, I hate when that happens.

Well after a few weeks of barely poking at the van, I just ran out of fuck to give about this th400, and the many many jimmy rigs the po did to "install" it.
I got myself a th350, the correct crossmember, a flywheel and torque converter all cheap.
Last thing I need is a driveline... well that's not super easy for me to fund as it turns out.
I found 2 late model vans with th350s, but they both had one peice driveline instead of the 2 piece I need.
I would have grabbed one and made it work but they move the things around with fork lifts and both shafts where fucked.

When I say "I have" a trans and junk, it's actually sitting at my folks house in vancouver. So it's not in my hands, but it's one I know, and was rebuilt recently.
