Default A rant about my week

Well, the past two weeks I've taken leave (I'm in the military) and at the same time, told a friend I would help him with his truck (motor toast, have to replace it with a rebuilt longblock, 1998 chevy 4x4)

Anywho, I get the motor out, and after a week of waiting on the motor shop to get another engine rebuilt, I finally get it back to the house and put it in.

Yesterday morning, I get ready to fire it up, but I'm getting no spark, and instantly I figure out what i forgot, the little crank wheel for the crank speed sensor or w/e its called, yeah i forgot it, so after taking all day to get that POS harmonic balancer off, I get it all put together correctly.

Now today, I get ready to fire it up, nothing, I have spark, I have fuel (I pulled all 8 spark plugs and they are soaked in fuel) so the only thing I can thing of is the time is WAY off. Which I dont know how that could have happened but I guess I have to pull and reinstall the distributor for the 3rd time

So yeah, I'm pissed at this truck and I'm about to throw it off a cliff
