I'll have it all apart tomarrow night so any night after 7 before Monday...

Lets say....hmmm....This Thursday Feb 23 - 7pm?

Who's game?

I close the shop at 6ish.
Takes me 10 mins to get home - so a 6:30 start could work.
Or I could just pull up to find you all in my car port at 6ish.....lol.

Saturday at 5:30 or 6 can work if we really want a earlier start.

Doh - went to put this back together this morning - missing a couple of head bolt/stud washers - ha - I'll have to get them Monday because I got a team practise today in Duncan.

- I even had my dad lined up to gap my valves and put it all back together - ready to go back in for me when I got home tonight.

- Looks like it will be a mad panic Monday to get er done before the meeting. - Shouldn't be a problem - nothing really major to do.

Might as well clean out my oil filter screen while I am at it before I fill er with new oil.

It will not be rushed.

I just need a couple of washers now and the second set of hands it get it in there.

Should be there with it at the meeting - otherwise it will be all assembled needing the valves gapped and tossed back in.

Cutting it close.

Just got wiring to do - I think I may of mixed up my plugs.
Gap the valves and shove it in, connect all lines - fire it up and drive it to the meeting. - Oh and put some oil in it -- time for a Crappy Tire run now.

If my dad makes it in time I'll be driving the bug - if not you'll see the Fox and I'll try to sucker some of you into lending a hand after the meeting.

UPDATE:

FINALLY - gapping the valves and tossing it back in Friday morning.

Putting the stock steering wheel back in now that the seat frame is...well, we will call it 'adjusted'.
