Boring Details

Now that I'm clean, and fed (from my favorite place that rhymes with Pachelbel (Didja know his name actually was Johann?)), I feel like saving some details about the car.

On the whole, the timing belt didn't look too bad, at least if you ignore the 8 inches or so of missing teeth.

He also replaced one of the rollers, because it sounded like a can full of hairpins. For those of you that know what a can full of hairpins sounds like.

He still seemed rather surprised that the water pump looked good. I seem to remember replacing that at some point, so there may be an explanation for his surprise.

I suppose I shouldn't be astounded that the car seems to be running more smoothly.

I've paid the car insurance, and if I ever finish with the taxes (I have made some progress today. Just not a huge amount), I can see what I have left to work with.

ARGH! Now that song is in my head......

My work here is done...

When your mechanic says thinks like this, it makes you wonder if he does drag.

Ummm, well...

That was my term, not his. He just said it sounded noisy, and handed the old part to me to play with...

at least your car is running! good job! I'll see you tomorrow?
