Needed to pick up some van parts
Once I got it going this morning, I headed over to Santa Rosa to pick up some more parts for the van project and bought some more spray paint for it too. I also needed some more pop rivets as the ones I had are too small.
Kayaking Monte Rio
One of the mergansers that was fishing with the group caught a rather big fish, for them at least, and was trying to swallow it and keep it away from the others. You can see the one on the left has a big neck as the fish is stuck there until it can expand it’s neck and swallow it. Mergansers tend to mostly eat smaller fish, not as large as this one which was about eight or ten inches in length.
Injection unit parts come
I went on home for a nap and sometime the delivery guy dropped off a package for me.
I found the box on the ground when I went out to work on the van. It contained a PROM programed for my new V8 350 Chevy engine for the computer that controls my TBI unit. It also had the two new larger injectors I will need and a gasket kit I wasn’t expecting. The guy I got this from said he’d throw in the TBI screw I lost when it went into the engine and put a hole in my piston, but no screw, I guess he forgot and now I’ll have to find one around here someplace.
Support brackets are finished
Now that I had the right pop rivets, I installed them on the support braces which finishes off that part of the project.
And with plenty of paint now, I painted the engine compartment inside and out. I bought some silver paint for the inside of the engine compartment and am using smoke gray for the outside.
That was my day for a nice one.
