Just in case you were wondering, I was listening to CBC and a journalist was defending the tabloid crap they cover by claiming this is the stuff that people want to read. Mom fends off cougar attack on her kid is the epitome of the news story that garners the most appeal. Death, heroism, children in danger. And it even has animals!
If this is actually the case, adding a crime and porn element should draw even more eyes. Let’s see if this works.
We still haven’t finished that reno job (not by a long shot) and the owner moved in today. what a frickin disaster. The halls and 1\3 of the living room stall haven’t been covered, and the painting still hasn’t been done. I have no idea how we are gonna do this with all her stuff in there now.
But because today was moving day it gave me a chance to work on the boat and get the engine put back together. And I’m not happy. It was a real bear trying to get that engine started. Now it could just be that after having everything ripped apart it would take a lot longer to start. I’m going to check it out again tomorrow. If it’s still hard to start it has to be compression, glow plug circuit, or injector pump.
Once I get it going it purrs very nicely, much better than it has before, which is why I don’t get the hard starting. Once the engine was warm it started fine. Now that I have those busted glow plugs removed I can check the compression. I should also make sure that the plugs are getting proper voltage. If these check out then I’m thinking injection pump, but then if this was faulty it shouldn’t run so smoothly. I need to spend a little more time with it to narrow down the problem. But at least I got it put back together and it runs. SO I CAN GO SAILING!
For what it’s worth, I really screwed up last time I worked on the injectors. I checked the torque settings for the injector hold-down nuts and they are only supposed to be set at 12 foot-lbs. I probably had them yanked down twice that or more, which is why the nozzles screwed up. On my next post I’m gonna show the guts of the injector nozzle.
