    Murphy's Law, man. Murphy's Law. Wonder how well it would have worked hooked up to two ports on the same side of the circuit? NOT!

    I brought my son home in my 6.5 yesterday.

    I got me a boy y’all. We waited until the baby was born to find out what it was going to be. I’ve got a 5 year old and a 3 year old daughter and now a son.

    He spent a week and a half in the NICU. His blood platelets and my wife’s blood platelets didn’t like each other at first so they gave him some treatments and now he’s good to go. The last picture is him sleeping in our new house.

    Thanks to all of you.

    That made me laugh loud enough that my wife asked me what I was laughing at so I had to show her this post. She laughed too.

    Just5 got back from Billings, 295 miles round trip, 17 gallons at 65 MPH. I think that`s somewhere around 17 per gallon.
    When the wifey drives, next to 80, it is about 12 per.LOL
    Oh yeah, a pic from when I just pulled into the parking spot. It still uses no oil.

    Are You going to leave the reflectors out ?
    Or just clean everything real good and reassemble ?

    I replaced the blower motor on my '99 K2500 Suburban today. Old one was squeaking when spun by hand and it had cooked the connecting plug on the positive lead. All is good.
