Yep, BBT rides again. My little signature pic was from the Rent the Track '10 event . It had been my goal to race the truck there, and I made it.

Mafia, I ended up saying "Screw it" to studs. Just didnt have the extra money available at the time.

Hows the engine doing Tom? Just read all of this thread, ready to get my engine done with the help of many.

Preluber was an excellent idea.

Truck has 188,000 or so on it now, Brian. No odd noises, oil pressure is great, doesnt use coolant, pretty much nothing out of the ordinary has happened. If I wouldnt have told anyone I rebuilt the engine, nobody would've ever noticed.
Only thing that worries me is I have a couple injectors starting to show odd balance rates. I should've followed my own advice on those, though.

So bookface sends me a link to a post I made 8 years ago that the truck was back on the road. Has it really been that long? 210,000 miles now. Everything is still the same. The truck is slowly falling apart around the drivetrain, though. Its been relegated to 2nd vehicle status now, anyway. Might be driven once a month.
