Glad to hear the clutch cable is sorted!

I really wanted to go for a ride Saturday but was stuck working.

Yeah, we're on a roll here too...dishwasher started leaking yesterday ( = day my parents showed up, staying thru Friday) and Carly appears to have woken up with pinkeye.

Big thanks for HBN's help though--at least the Beast's valves are in good form!

Looks like it was made in either 1982 or 1994. Either way, that's pretty old

Well, since we're counting, since Friday I've survived Toronto's ice storm, shared over $1K in hotel expenses for the wedding we attended, came home to a $300 boarding bill for my dog, which turned into a $6K hospital bill when he needed emergency 2 hour surgery at 2 am for bloat, only to be topped off by the van dying in the mall yesterday. A tow and starter later, all is well. Good times, good times. . ..
