visited me in preparation for the Nazareth Days car show. Since he was staying over night we went into my air conditioned garage and looked at the 1990 Ford 35th Anniversary Thunderbird SC that have been working on for several weeks.
First things first,
demanded that I hand him my starter fluid. He then started to spray under the engine searching for the vacuum leak. He sprayed and sprayed and sprayed EVERYTHING! Every connection was soaked!!! He then turned to me and said I do not see a vacuum leak!
At that moment POOF!
The passengers side of the engine ignites in a massive flame!
being a Fireman
says, calm down, do not panic!!! While he gazes at the flames with a BIG GRIN on his face.
I turn off the engine and grab, a old leaf blower catcher bag and try to swing it at the flamse but only half of the fire goes out.
is staring at the fire!
I hear a
while I run to the garden hose... I turn on the water go the car and hose her down, the fire goes gout.
then says start the engine before it dries. I start the car and She actually runs a little better. We then leaf blower, start it up and blow down the engine.
The fire molested my pristine condition, and may I add the only, pristine part left on my car, hood liner.
So let it be a lesson for all of you. Do not invite
to check for vacuum leaks!
