    OK, just spent most of the day changing the air filter, oil filter, radiator hose, oil, coolant, points, spark plugs, rotor, distributor cap etc etc and I feel like **** :(

    [/rant]

    So I might save up to get it professionally done next time

    I don't blame you one bit.
    Anything after 1974 I hate to work on, anything after 1978 I probably can't.

    Laugh at my ol' striped truck if you want, but I know what every part does, and how to replace it:D

    my car is a POS but if it breaks down you can usually repair it with some electrical/duct tape

    hehehe.. a friend of mine had an old VW Beetle, and that was his theory.. There was duct tape holding up the window, holding the inside door panels on... The passenger head rest was basically a ball of tape.. that's just the parts I can remember... i'm sure there were plently more..

    Also to make matters worse I tried to mow the lawn afterwards and the bloody 2-stroke wouldn't go..... too much oil in the mix so filled the can up with unleaded and it finally went..... and then went inside to find my arms, legs, face, neck and backside (short shirt) the colour of cooked lobsters

    So I'm spraying on this anaesthetic stuff every couple of hours trying to stop the pain :cry:
