When it rains.....

A few weeks back I went to start my '84 after about a month of hibernation just to find out that my DME had gone south (probably due to humidity in the Florida summer).

So, I had her towed in to the local shop and since she was there I decided to have H-4's and a factory short shift kit added as well as some minor repaint on the front valence, lower rear 1/4 panel skirts and flag mirrors. Just to clean her up a bit. You know the drill.

So, I went to pick her up today, she had been test driven and was ready to come home. Finally!

Started her up and immediately we all heard what turned out to be the sound of my left side chain tensioner gone bad.

So I went home empty handed.

AAAARRRRGGGGHHHHH!!!!!! A few more days and I'll try again. All I wanted to do was to get her down to Sebring this weekend....

Wow, that sucks. At least it didn't happen at speed. Only the chain tensioner I hope. No pistons or valves?

Everything else should be okay. I guess in reality if it had to fail at the shop with the guys right there was about the best place it could happen. So I guess I'm lucky after all.
