    I drove Max to work, then home. When I got home I tried to figure out why it's idling so high, just like the last three nights... no success. Off to get a timing light tomorrow so I can set it right?

    Unplug the idle controller on top of the motor, and see if it drops back down to normal revs.

    I just had one fail here the other week, with symptoms identical to your description. :rolleyes:



    So to keep on topic - I replaced an idle controller.:)

    I tried to figure out how to mount all the seatbelt points and baby anchor points safely, without too much cutting and welding and without being in the way of rear seat passengers.
    Still thinking unfortunately...
    But loving the new 2/3 middle seat. Looks like a real bus now but still really roomy.

    Cathy is washing out the inside of Cookie and then the curtains and bed goes back in. Just fitted a new glove box lid and clutch pedal rubber. I have an engine lock to fit but thus far its got me stumped.

    Just took Kev to Leon's Motors. We went for a drive on the weekend to Crows Nest and Toowoomba and he chugged a bit. He's a bit like me - old and at times dithery. Beautiful drive from Brisbane though. Went up through Esk to Crows Nest. Everything's so green and lush. Best part is that the climb was gradual so we only had to go down the range from Toowoomba, not up.

    Tried posting a picture of our lunch stop but Photobucket might have me beat again.

    Slapped it around with a rag full of Acetone. Still would not comply!
