I'm game for a pre-trip meet 'n greet with some fellow Merk pervs, but sitting in traffic all the way out to Leavenworth with a bunch of ,um, show cars just doesn't sound real appealing.

My family always goes camping on the same weekend father's day weekend for the last 19 years. Being that its a two week camping trip I might have to go a week early. But then there is also inventory at work in the first part of month that might conflict with the trip.........I guess I just got alot to do to prepare. Count me in, I will be coming from the other side of the state. So we will have to figure out a spot so I can meet up around leavenworth.

Rockette and I are talking about it, we can visit her parental units in Wenatchee
after the drive, but we should meet somewhat near BCC, that's easy to get to from
both I-405 and I-90...

i was kinda surprised last year actually. traffic was bad getting from the start out to 405, but after that there were only a couple small backups. just hang out in the parking lot for a half hour after everyone leaves and you probably wont get stuck in traffic at all. finding a place to park in leavenworth however... for those that havent been, its such a beautiful drive. I hadnt done it in years, and had forgotten.
last time we met for breakfast kinda in the sodo district near downtown. worked out well, since I90 is right there.

Well after replacing a blown head gasket and getting the car back together,I go to put water in it and........it starts to pour out the back of the motor. Cracked block? Looks like I will be putting a new power plant in.

Could just be a "frost" plug..... is there one in the back of the head or near the back of the motor??

I can verify that there is one in the back of the head.
Murphy bit me on that one.

Wow I did not even see the freez plug on the back of the head. But that was not it still leaked when pouring water strait to the block, and still right in the middle. The big bummer is I don't have a cherry picker. New tools for a new project?
