I'd like to do it this week but if we can't it's all good. I will pull the engine and set up the cops after I get her put back together in March. Definitely don't need to get into a car accident in the first big snow of the season. I am sure there will be a lot of meatheads out there driving their suv's and pickups into stationary objects. A lot of those less than intelligent individuals traverse 32 often.

i had a MINI tailgating me all the way down 32 (and 32 was a mess). Apparently I am missing something and I should have been doing 75 down the back road in my MINI ?? dumbasses.

LOL i had a guy in a white work van that was pulling a car dolly with a ford exploder. So im in the middle lane heading north on I95 and this guys goes flying pasted me towing the exploder and here i am doing 45-50mph. so he had to be doing 60-65mph and he is passing me im watching the exploder he is towing wobble and im saying to my self he is going to spin out when we get to the turn up ahead. what do you know as soon as we get to the turn he ends up from the far left lane to the right off the road in the snow. the exploder cam off the dolly and tipped and he was facing the road. so i drove by flashed my high beams and gave him a thumbs up for dumb *** of the day.

How do your cars act in the cold with the cops? Mine didn't want to do anything for the first 5 minutes but after a bit of keeping on the throttle she was ok. My driveway is another story :(

Before my cold start wasn't bad, idle was a little low and rough. Now it was backfiring (before it would start) and once I got it running it seemed like one of the cops wasn't firing. The car was already warmed up when we swapped over so I think that is why it was so smooth when we started it. Once she was warmed up she was happy but I had ZERO traction...something about sand, salt, and 30* pavement

yeah last time i drove my car i couldnt get into it at all...even in 3rd.

if it started rough because the cranking is a bit off it could have soaked one of the plugs with fuel. sometimes mine does that and then it runs on 3 cyl till the plug clears up.

When will that be? This is tempting (if the offer still stands for the engine stand).

This can be when any one is free and the stand is still here waiting for you and if you want to keep it its yours for 50 bucks.
