- Annnnnd I'm up and
running again 6 days later. All of that time simply
being waiting for parts to arrive and thankfully there
were no gigs that I could've missed. So incredibly my
streak of never missing a gig continues: 522 straight.
- Kids are
- Now, unlike 2018
(January 20th instead of 21st - weird) when the fire
happened, this was much more leisurely. I had more
control, I had more of an idea of what to do.
So.... is this TOO a Kenny
- I'm afraid it
- So Kenny
hard-mounted the motor. Usually there's rubber
bushings to make for a smoother ride and, well, to
keep bolts from unscreweing from normal fucking
driving. There was actually a scene in Fastest
Delorean where Ray discovered the bolts had loosened
after drag racing it and I took it out after I had
tightened them and they came loose just a month later.
It seemed clear this was a parts issue and not a Kenny
issue of simply not tightening them enough.
Cut to a couple years later and after trying to
replace everything I realize it's NOT a parts issue as
every other Delorean owner with an LS swap isn't
having this problem. The one difference? My engine is
welded right to the goddamn frame. Josh Schattenkirk
finally called that as being the most likely culprit.
So he had an idea on how to fix it, which ended up not
working, but now I'm just gonna get pre-drilled bolts
and use a safety wire. That'll end this problem which
has caused me to tighten bolts every 50-75 miles for
years. Real fun guessing mileage when you don't have a
- Fucking barrel of
laughs, that is.
- So will this
goddamn month end?
WHAT THE FUCK ELSE IS GOING TO HAPPEN?
- PS - that was
probably a stupid thing to write, but let's
