Restorations / Re: WillieB's 1275 Engine Rebuild

So that worked pretty well?  There's been a couple times I could have saved myself a lot of time and headaches by injecting grease rather than having to pull everything back apart.
It worked good. I think for next time I am going to cut the end of the needle off so it just has the one hole on the end. Really don't need the pointed end and two holes on the sides.

Needed to re-grease the inner part of the pot joint that I split when pulling the engine. Decided to try a flavor injector, from Walmart. The end comes off so it's easy to fill straight from the tube. Holds about 4 ounces so just the right amount. It is little challenging as the needle has two opening opposite each other.

1st dose of two, Pfizer version. Second one comes in 3 weeks, then after a couple more weeks we should be 95% as safe as we can be.

I got my shot today, I can go!   ;D

Did you get the newer 'single-dose' vaccine or was it one of the 'two-dose' versions?  If a 'two-dose', was it the second dose?

I'll be querying my primary care doctor soon to see when I may become eligible to try for getting on the list(s).

Events and Mini Clubs / 2021 Mini Meets Canceled

Announced on Feb 3, Mini Meet West is canceled. Plans are being formulated for MMW '22, to be held in a different location and by a different host organization.

Announced on March 4, Mini Meet East is canceled. Plans for MME '22 are being made by the same host organization, Ohio Mini Owners, with the expectation of holding the event in Dayton Ohio from July 2-4.

Both of these cancellations are the result of ongoing COVID-19 pandemic concerns.

Last time I went 85 down and 10 across, both ways. This time it will be 20 into Mississippi then down on 59 or 55 to 10. My plan is to get to Lafayette the first night, 600 miles or so. I will be using my RV so I have my overnights covered. Cracker Barrel has longer RV spaces in back and let folks stay the night in their lot, there is one in Lafayette. Another plus to the southern route is that it will be the middle of crawfish season so I foresee stopping for some along the way.

If thatís the route, itís not much more scenic. At least not the interstate.  Still a tunnel of pine trees for the majority.

So, you took 20 all the way last time, and this time you'll go south on 85 to 10 and across? That takes you thru some major cities along the way if that's what you're thinking.....tho that has to be  way more scenic since you'll be cruising close to the ocean for a lot of it.

1000 miles is a long way in one shot, so where will you stop?
