Let's see, what have we been up to ...
Last night Tristan and I drained the coolant and flushed the system and put in some descaler which I'm going to drain again tonight and clean out and replace with water and coolant and water wetter. Although it might all drain by itself because it looks like we didn't secure the bottom hose to the radiator well enough because it drips for quite a bit after driving. Awesome.
On a brighter note, the car had some electrical siezure action earlier this morning; driving along Storrow Drive and it just stopped. It was in gear and I didn't have the reaction time or presence of mind to put in the clutch that quickly because it bucked like crazy and then just died, but then there was no power anywhere on the car (except the horn! WTF!). So I sat there with cars whizzing by fiddling under the hood with connections, and eventually it just started again. God I love electrical Gremlins.
So now I have no faith in the car's reliability so I ordered an "Auto Transporter" from UHaul for the weekend, and Paul is going to be a dear and help me tow the car up and back with his F150. Sweet Cuppin' Cakes! We'll see how this goes.
PS - Richened the mixture in the Carb a bit and now the car's driving a bit better. Yay!
