Long story short………. I have been sick as a dog, again. The last time I was seen, I was given an antibiotic via injection. Well, come to find out, the clinic also slipped in tetanus and flu vaccine into the same syringe even though I declined them. Yes, you heard that right. They slipped in the vaccines into the same syringe that held the antibiotic. I wasn’t told about it until after I saw the paperwork and questioned them. They literally SHRUGGED when I reminded them that I had declined the flu and tetanus shots.
Flu shots ALWAYS make me very susceptible to each and every bug that passes my way. It has always been that way for me and I suspect that it always will. Suffice it to say that I have been stuck with yet another bout of the “crud”.
I am sorry for the sporadic posts, but when I feel like a bucket of smashed assholes the last thing that I want to do is start typing for my own pleasure.
Some good news, however. I ripped the engine to my old Dodge apart and found out why it was not working. My cylinder heads had to be rebuilt, will be replacing a few pistons and swapping out all the piston rings in the next week or two. Once that is done, my truck should then run. In hindsight I really should have just ripped the truck apart and rebuilt it myself. It would have saved me a few thousand dollars and I would have had it back on the road already.
There will be a post in the next couple days about what I found on my engine, the great work that Tom’s Performance did on the heads, and rest of the work I am doing to fix the damage of the long block I got from S&J.
