The “Finnegan” Snowball Effect

Hello all! It’s been a while! As spring hits our homestead, things get CRAZY with property maintenance… mow, weed, mow, spray, mow… you know how it goes.

As for Finnegan, she’s stuck in winter mode with the “Snowball Effect”.

So we started with a “simple” motor swap, then installed the FiTech EFI. After that, we realized the sending unit in the gas tank and the fuel line were not enough to support the new fuel injection, so we swapped out the sending unit, and put on bigger fuel lines to the fuel pump. Then, we found out something is draining the Optima battery, and that is where we are now. Trying to find the mysterious “hot” that is draining the battery. In the process, Scott took Finnegan for a drive, and coolant suddenly came splashing into the passenger compartment. So, if it’s not one thing, it’s another, and we continue to work out the bugs.

I’m hoping to be driving her again by early summer, but she’s only getting attention between springtime maintenance on the property!

I’m gonna melt her snowball if it kills me! 😀
