Fighting COVID Burnout? Get In The Car And Drive!

I'll be the first to admit that the COVID reality has been very tough on me as we've gone from fighting the spread, reducing the curve to restrictions, masks in all public places, favorite places closing and restrictions that are curtailing our normal feeling of freedom. No matter what side of the story you fall on, there's no doubt that all of us are affected by the changes, the gap in services or products and most certainly, the isolation.  Of all the freedoms that we are accustomed to as Americans, these times have put a dent in them. But, there's one thing most of us can do. Get outside. Go for a walk. Get some sunshine. For me, I had to take a DRIVE. Literally get in the car and take a ten hour trip to the beautiful state of Maine. With my wife Patty and my co-pilot, we got to explore the wonders of "The Pine Tree State". Funny to me, but the fall foliage seems to take second seat to the wonderful coastlines as it's jets out further east than mo ... read more

The front clip as it's called, is removed to gain favorable access to the engine and all accessories such as the air conditioning compressor, power steering pump, alternator and other pulleys.

The engine will be pulled out straight away from the body. Once we have it out and rested on our movable bench, we begin to dissect it. That means, we're taking off all of the parts that get swapped over to the new (used in this case) one. MINI Parts like spark plug wires, manifolds, pumps, alternators and other pieces necessary to get the engine back in running condition.  After its finally set up, it's re-installed just about the ... read more
