Up around 8:30 again this morning. It was a beautiful morning for just lying on the lounge chair and having my coffee. Soon, I saw Tom outside and went over to his place and not long after that, both Debs came out and we sat around till near 11:30. I had to leave to finish the White Lion and hopefully, road test it today. My little buddy stopped by for a sip this morning too.
I finished the routing of the exhaust hose and when I double checked, I saw that it was too close to the balancer and fan, so to be sure nothing got caught in any moving parts, I pulled it out and re-routed it beneath the oil pan. Still high enough not to hit anything on the ground.
I thought I was ready to test drive, so I pulled everything from the WL and pulled in the slide and got everything secure and ready to go. Thought, I better check the oil before starting it, and I'll be darn, it was very low on oil. I guess the trip from Borrego Springs had used a lot of oil.
So, at 2:30, I headed into Yuma to buy lots of oil and oil additive. Don't want to run low on my next long trip. A couple hours later, when I got home and put 3 quarts of oil in it and 2 quarts of additive, I tried starting it and it did start. That's a good sign, but it is too late in the day to go for a test drive, so maybe tomorrow.
We had our Happy Hour with just Tom and Deb and me and Deb. Riley is having some sinus problems and decided to stay inside.
As the sun went down, we all headed home. The high today was 68 with very little wind and lots of sun. Perfect day. Our military friends were quite busy today, guarding our skies.Thanks for stopping by.
