It's Wednesday, tried to get the tranny done in time for tonight. I should have taken the day off. Way too many little things to take care of, sooner or later, in the case sooner, going to miss something.
Finished up the tranny, the exhaust, driveshaft. Decided to take care of the kickdown at a later date. Went to take it off the jack stands and noticed a leak. Finally nailed it down to the kick down cable connection at the tranny. It's a 10mm bolt, tightened up. Ran it again, seemed OK. Started heading down to the track.
Thats when I noticed it was not shifting right. Think now think.....OH SHIT the vacuum modulator is not hooked up. What the freak?!! Pull into the nearest auto parts store to get some vacuum lines and connectors. On the way in the store I told Robbie, it ain't happening tonight. Not because of the vacuum modulator but because of the FREAKING LEAK that I can see walking into the store. WTF!
So we brought it back home, back up on the rhino ramps and we are now waiting for it to cool down. We have to drop the exhaust, the cross member, lower the tranny and get at that connection. I think there is suppose to be an o-ring, what are the odds that it ain't in there!! I'm more pissed about missing a night of racing than I am about my stupid mistakes.
OK, who said it, there are no mistakes, just learning experiences???
