Sorry Jimmy, I guess it is bad timing for you. Dang.

I'm getting used to it. I stay way busier than I'd like.

if you guys are any least bit packrat-ish, I know you have a couple old el-cheapo automotive speakers in the garage somewhere, or when you see a lawn sale, stop and check, you know, the 4 to 6" ones, with the ripped cone....that never got thrown away?...rip that sucka apart and get that honkin magnet, stick it to the bottom of a steel cake pan, and viola....awesome spill proof parts holder, mounts anywheres....or bust the magnet into pieces and toss a piece in each cell of the muffin tin....

the key to having cool stuff is never let Momma in the "sanctuary".....

oh, go grocery shopping with her at least once every couple months, and peruse the baked goods section, those nice heavy duty clear plastic cupcake trays, and cookie and pie containers work great, and we all need a nice deseart sometimes also....heheheh best part is they are free....

I tend to use the good ol' coffee cans. I really like the idea of the speaker magnet! Was at Advance Auto yesterday and they wanted $10 for an overgrown magnetic ashtray.

My tire still has life left in it, so there is no hurry to get this done on my end. Jeff, if ya want to put it off due to Easter/Poe's to let more folks come and play that's fine with me...Any and all help that you can give will be greatly appreciated whenever you can give it!

I took out a little flip notebook, wrote Intake or Exhaust wrote the gauge to use and numered 1 2 3 4, then circled each one that I did in order. Helped a lot, esp. to remember 4 valves per cylinder.
