i need some help
« on: January 08, 2004, 04:24:01 PM »
alright folks, i need to fix my timing belt this weekend and i cannot do it myself due to injury... so if anyone is willing to help me out i would much appriciate it.

i will provide tools lunch, beer and a heated garage to do the work. and gas money for the trip.

i know it is a long way from most of your homes, but i thought i would ask...

if you can do it, please shoot me an  email at GTschnecke@yahoo.com or give me a call at 719-287-0929

I wish I could lend you a hand Mike, but I'm busy this weekend and I'm getting Lasik late next week and probably won't be much use myself.  I hope you get your car fixed up soon.

Hey Mike, sorry to hear about your head (no pun intended, you crazy kid!).  Any leads on getting a new one?  Junkyards would be a good bet.

I am totally down for a C/S GTG and we could go to Old Chicago's afterwards.  Timing is my only issue, since I am busier than normal lately with the prego wife.

Timing is mike's issue here too (no pun intended)
I do not have a garage at the moment, we are trying to buy a house in August though...
Mike has a nice garage  ...

yeah i like my garage, i almost have everything i need, except for an air compressor, a keg in the kegorator, and some more shelves and lights...

as for the head, i will be calling in my free time (whenever that is) every junkyard in the US  trying to find one...if i cant, then i will most likely be buying new cams, valves, spring and spring retainers and rebuilding mine.

if anyone comes across a head let me know ASAP...

just give me 2 weeks notice and my garage will be clean and trhe beer will be cold and we can do this GTG!!!

You got it Mike.  I'll check my schedule and let you know soon.  Let me know if you find a head.
