Changed my oil and filter. Took an oil sample to send to Blackstone Labs for analysis.

We'll see how a years worth (1800 miles) of short trip driving depletes the TBN.

I never knew a reg person could have there oil tested. I always thought it was only available to companys.

Went & picked up the grands kids at school yesterday & went for a ride. They wanted to play Playstation, "Ok just make sure you turn everything off when your done". Well they did they shut off the TV & Playstation. "OK Papa everything is off", so I went out to the rear of the van to get the shore power cord. Plugged it in and POP POP POP. They didnt turn off the inverter !

Bummer! If it is just blown caps you can replace those very cheaply yourself.

Today I ordered some stock exhaust manifolds to replace the unknown brand shorty headers that I had to use when I swapped to a 351. I am hoping that going back to stock headers will quiet the van down some and fix an annoying exhaust leak. I am hoping to do some major work on my van this winter. Interior, engine, maybe even a repaint! I still have a trick custom piece I got from Uncle Fester I need to install.
