Tess has been a bit grumpy recently, and it was probably my own silly fault, but now I have to fix it.
I’ve been kinda bad, and lazy. I haven’t washed Tess since before I put her in storage when I moved, in April, and she is FILTHY.
It was finally time to reassemble the front end of the car, since I didn’t need the under tray off anymore.
With the major source of oil leaks under the car sorted, I needed to repair some collateral damage from the previous leaks. The transmission mounts had turned to jello and weren’t doing a lot.
Maybe leaving a 38 year old car outside in some of the heaviest rain we have had wasn’t such a good idea.
Taking it easy doesn’t mean not playing with cars, so since Tess was up on jacks I wanted to remove the front bumper and headlight to fix it.
I couldn’t handle it anymore, the amount of oil that was leaking from the sump was getting out of hand. I needed to replace the gasket.
I know I have covered replacing the hand brake cable on Effie before, but having done it again on Tess this time, I have some new insights to share.
This darn car. There is always something that makes me shake my fist in frustration.
