Guess that's what they're for.
The water pump was starting to chirp,
and it was an easy swap,
until I had the bright idea to spray the car with a hose.
the engine was shuddering and hiccuping.
Time to troubleshoot.
that don't cause problems.
I thought for sure it was a vacuum leak from this dried up plug.
Then I thought it must be the custom HEI module.
I had gone through everything else.
Good thing I tried swapping out the distributor cap first.
No more water on a warm engine.
I found out that NAPA is having a deal month.
Last year it was free hats,
this year it's a bucket deal.
Whatever fits inside is 20% off.
Had to make a 20 minute walk of shame home.
For a minute I thought that was the end,
of course I had just paid the registration,
and quarter filled the tank.
After cooling down it magically drove home.
4 years ago it had the same problem,
and the fuel pump was the culprit.
The evidence of the old repair was obvious,
I had to weld these bolts on the tank straps after they broke!
and 20% off a $200 pump is a done deal.
For a free van,
two pumps and used tires I can't complain.
