(no subject)

Jeebus. Twelve hours, more or less. But there are new cylinder head, intake and exhaust manifold, and fuel rail gaskets on the 'Sploder.

And I've seen my pistons.

Pictures to come. Paul, you're gonna love 'em.

head gasket replacement

Last night was the head gasket replacement event for the 'Sploder. Due to some amazing help, I was introduced to Herb, who does this sort of mechanistry work (among other things), and with some finagling of the Garage of Artemis, we made it so last night. The vast majority of the work was done by Herb, while I was there primarily to learn and assist where needed.

Warning: the pictures are pretty graphic, and involve a lot of open-car surgery.
