Blood Sweat and Tears

well after a longs day work i came home to work on my Datsun. one because i have to move it within two weeks and it doesn't run. after making a sandwich and resting for and min (and watching cash cab for a bit) i took a step back and thought about what my next should be...... (basically i a not getting any spark and i dont know why) i decided to start from step one again.

removed the distributor and checked all the connections, checked to see if all was tight, it was. then i had a bright idea of if i checked ohms (resistance) from the negative lead cable from the coil (power) and the distributor (ground) then there should be 0 ohms unless the point opens. so i tried it. and it turns out that i have a huge amount of resistance (OL - out of limits) reguardless whether the points where open or closed.

so basically that means that something is not connected properly. began trying to find the missed connection. then i finally found it. so i began to fix the issue and clean the connection and make sure all is clean and tight. during the cleaning i stabbed my finger/nail with the steel brush and it f'ing hurt, blood and everything, curse words and slighty yelling came out......

anyways connected every thing and took it to the car. connected it in excitement and went to start the car............dead battery :( so i had one in the truck that i have been charging at work. swapped batteries and crossed me fingers. it began to try to start!!!! finally it started!!!!!!!! pretty rough but not surprising since the car always starts rought plus the car hasn't ran for a year, gas is old, timing is off, and point gap is probably off. anyways its freaking RUNNING im soo happy. made various adjustments and took it out for a little spin down the street:) can't go far since i have no insurance and its not registered.....

so now i think its semi ready to make the long journey to its old home my parents house.......

for such a good job i wanted to celebrate with beer but just my luck i dont have any:( so i think as a pat on the back im gonna go get some ICE CREAM :) also i was getting ready to drive down to antioch to buy a distributor of some guy for 50 bucks so basically i saved 50 bucks!!!!
