Hey gang....

Since no one else has mentioned needing to do any work, I'll host again tomorrow (Saturday).

'Dorothy' has been suffering some lag on initial acceleration so I'm going to pull the dizzy, as well as check the carbs' float bowls and perhaps do a full reset of the carbs.
I might also remove the front roll bar and test drive without it since I have excessive bumpsteer.

If I get through that stuff, I'll also start to go through my winterize list.

Show up anytime 9-11... I'll probably wrap up around noon.

Cheers!
TW

Had some fun working on the carbs, but she's now on a lift for the winter. I'll be working on some winterizing activities but not sure if the timing will be appropriate for it being a MHM event.

Over the winter I'll change my focus to tackling the MGA ("Shirley"winking smiley so still lots of excuses to have members over for coffee, tire kicking and laughs.

As for this coming Saturday, if no one steps up by Thursday, I'll cancel it since I'm out of town until the evening....
LET ME KNOW IF YOU CARE TO TAKE A TURN HOSTING THE MOTLEY CREW.

Cheers,
Terrence

Sounds like Dave Pern's garage sale will take the place of MHM this Sunday.

Members can help a member thin out his garage.

After months of barely giving it the time of day, I'll be continuing the tear down of 'Shirley' my MGA.
No particular assistance required, but feel free to drop by, hang out, kick tires, tell jokes - or just laugh at me.

Usual time 9-noon.
If you need my address, call or text my cell at four oh three, six oh seven, one nine one four.
Park on the street and come around the side of the house to the garage - dog is usually inside, but call my cell if you'd prefer to make sure (Duke's bark is worse than his bite).

Cheers,
Terrence W.

Ken Jans dropped by today - glad to meet him! Sounds like he has quite the gorgeous MGB... and he's not done with it yet!
We had a great chat. Killed a good hour or more then he took off to get some things done and let me get back to pulling a few more parts off the dash.

Was nice to have a visitor for a change, heh!
