Question Sticky: NoVa 914 breakfast on 10/11/03?

Folks,

Judging interest in yet another 9:14 breakfast on October 11th in the Northern Virginia area. Tag back if you're interested. Likely location is the Silver Diner in Tyson's Corner but suggestions are appreciated.

Nice try on the "Sticky"... But a moderator has to do that.

I'd like to leave this un-stuck until it becomes a definite event.

Sorry guys, can't make it that day. I have a previous engagement, bummer.

I'll for sure be at the PCA Swap meet on the 19th though. What time are you all planning on going to that?

swap meet is 0'dark:30 for me. want to see what parts are available before the 911 crowd shows up (just kidding, i'm in the 911 crowd, too).

dezel12345 is interested in a valve adjust. anyone want to do a tech session where we adjust his valves? kinda like eric's (dc914guy) tranny drop. my calendar is filled with field hockey games (watching daughter, not playing ) on sat and work on sun. november looks good. i only have a flat paved driveway to offer (and tools & jack & stands.) (Kurt? driley? )

A November tech session for a valve adj would be great...seeing as I don't know how to do it either. I'll bring my winter jacket and a notetaking device

I'll be at the swap meet early this year too, last year I got there late and there was nada (however looking back I should have gotten something that I didn't grab, ah well). C-yall later.

Nathan

DD,

I tried my best, I knew it'd get your attention. So far we have three committed for the 11th, that almost makes a quorum around here.

hey scott, if we do it at your house, how long would the motor have to cool to be cold enough to do a valve adjust? ideally, dezel12345 would drop the car off fri night but that's not realistic. another guy says he adjusts the valves hot (ray g???). and he said to adjust to .005 (but i think that's for a 1.8.... oh, i have a 1.8 )

i'd go to sykesville for a tech session!

by the way, are you going for those fuchs at the wrecking yard?

and are you going to the potomac club race sat or sun at summit point?

DD,

We have 4 confirmed for this Saturday, will that be enough for a Sticky to get more traffic?

It's not a question of how many have committed. The issue is if it is an event announcement or a "when should we get together" note.

Now it seems to actually be an announcement--sorry I didn't get that earlier.

Thanks, Dave, we're pretty well committed.

Tyson's Corner is the location. From the Beltway take either Rt 7 or Rt 123 west/south and it's between the two behind the Crate and Barrel as Jim points out.
