I've had it for 5 years now. They have been on me about it and after the last outbreak the doc said it's time to see how bad it is. I have to see a surgeon now.

Well since it was a beautiful weekend I worked on the Excursion. Replaced the leaking tappet cover and started test fitting. It needs to come out again but it's progress.

That's better, you move the engine back?

Well thanks to Ellis I was able to get the trans in today. He supplied me with the missing Flexplate bolts i needed. Still need to get a transmission mount and do some adjustments. I have to find a kickdown cable as well.

I finally got this one the road this year. It runs nice and makes a great family hauler.
