we headed (limped, SLOWLY) South from Missoula to Hamilton to a friend's house. She has a nice big shop so, I put the truck in it and just put new heads on it last night. Now to adjust valves, button it up, and go for a test drive! We'll stay this week and help her with some projects (fixing trailer wiring and brakes) and putting a manure spreader back together, and then hopefully, head for home next weekend!

Dang Mike! I sometimes feel I've got a little black cloud tied to my belt with a short string (like Joe Btfsplk from Li'l Abner). I do believe the cloud has moved to your neck of the woods. At least you've got a nice place to do the necessary work.

Best of Luck on the trip home!

Thanks, guys! It is not a huge deal, been there, done that! If it was warmer, I would have more motivation to go out and work on it! Or, if I was 10 years younger! lol
