    Good thing you store your CV in the winter. I found out the hard way with my Aunt’s Saturn that the pcv catch I installed, accumulated water that ended up back in the crank case.

    Swapped on a spare fan I had pulled a while back, media blasted and powdercoated semigloss black.

    Looks good! Side note, I also dig the spark plug wire separators or whatever you call them.

    Thanks. They are cheap little plastic guys that can be a bit fiddly to work with. You have the two clamping sides and then a screw and a nut. Depending on where you are trying to separate it can become quite a bear. The heat also deforms them a bit (bowing out at the ends) but they do work. Id say the zip tie method is just as good.

    Nice work on the fan. Hopefully the powder coat is the trick. Paint always seems to chip on those.

    And when aligning wires don't forget the required crossovers to minimize misfires.

    Humid and muggy out today so I got around to an indoor project...checking into the latest junkyard picked radio. This one is from a 1986 Town Car. I first hooked it up to power to see what needed fixing and all of the pots needed some cleaner and lube. I did not dare try out the cassette before I opened it up to see the condition of the belts. The belts were still intact but needed replacing so I did just that. After a thorough once over this radio is fully functioning and will be stored away as a good spare for my car.
