Can I get a WOOO HOOO?

Well, some of you may recall that I was having some problems with my truck after installing some new stuff (carb, intake and distributor). It was pinging really bad and my new exhaust was popping like crazy!

I finally broke down and took it to a shop to get it dialed and picked it up this morning! I'm SOOOOO happy with the way it runs. No poppin', no pingin' and it goes VRROOOOOM VRRROOOOOOOOM [img]images/icons/cool.gif[/img]

WOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOO *in my best sing-songy voice* MY TRUCK IS FIXED, MY TRUCK IS FIXED... YAY FOR ME [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img][img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img][img]images/icons/laugh.gif[/img][img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img][img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img][img]images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

<font color=green>WOOOOHOOOOOOO! Way to go Cheryle! I knew it was just a matter of getting the sucker dialed in! So you're not pissed at the truck now? For the first time in what, about 6 months or so[img]images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]?

Yah, you 2... hurry up, hurry up before something breaks again[img]images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]

BTW, Jason, I finally found a bed for my truck!!!! It was cherry until the morons at the wrecking yard crumpled the passenger side with a forklift when they were removing it[img]images/icons/frown.gif[/img] Got it anyways and I think it'll be pretty easy to fix! So, I'm stoked about that, too!

Cool, all I have found so far here was a step side bed for 150. They got a brand new minivan that got plowed by a semi truck at the salvage yard though[img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]. That was kinda cool to look at.

Did they tell you what was wrong with it?

Re: Can I get a WOOO HOOO?

Well, there wasn't really anything "wrong" with it? A couple of little things were out of whack.

They adjusted the a/f mixture on my carb and tweaked the timing and idle. The timing mark on that motor is in the wrong place, so they had to figure that out, I guess, but that's all he wrote on the receipt.
