    Government and medicine do not mix. Let's just leave it at that. Its about as apolitical I can be. Stay healthy friends, however you see most fit.

    Well, damn....

    Thanks, still doing fine. I couldn't stand waiting any longer for my employer to contact about my PCR confirmation test, so drove up to the test place this morning (at this point, they are almost 100% driveup/remote, so I just stayed in my car). Technically they aren't supposed to tell me anything (per the contract they have) but at this point the wheels have fallen off the train and they really don't care anymore. It was positive and they printed off a copy of the test results for me. So yeah, I officially have the covids. I'm going to take them all some donuts on Monday....they really are busting their humps up there.

    Not so funny story....my wife and I were flying to Miami a couple years ago for a cruise vacation. We boarded the (direct flight) plane here in Richmond, and a family of 3 seated themselves right behind us. Little kid was snotting, coughing and spitting the whole way down (seated directly behind me). 3 days into our 7 day cruise, guess what I ended up with? Yeah, flu. Thanks kid. That vacation started out nice, ended up a train wreck by the end for me.

    As far as work goes, I'm in a good spot. My employer reinstated 80 hous of PHEL leave for anyone with symptoms or an actual positive test result. Even without that, I have about 16 weeks of leave on hand (annual, personal, comp and sick leave combined) that i could use if needed. I consider myself fortunate to a point in that regard....I know there's lots of folks who don't have either or both of those options available to them.

    I never lost taste or smell. So far, anyway. Like I said, if this really is the 'vid....I give it a solid "meh". Like Scott said, if you're an out of shape pile of crap, you might have something to worry about with it. I don't, and never did deny this was/is a real virus. Right now, one of my wife's jiu jitsu friends is down pretty hard with it. Hes half my age, and twice my fitness level but for some reason its hitting him harder than me. Ive been on a steady regimen of C, D, Zinc and Quercetin for the last 18 months, pretty much since this whole mess began. So, I suppose that's been a good ticket for me thus far. Heard back from my boss earlier today. He said HR should be in touch with me......within a MONTH. I can only chuckle at this point.

    So good to hear from you DC...its been awhile . Hope you're doing well. As for why I got tested, it is a condition of my employ (since I didn't get vexxed, I have to test every week, been doing it since late August). I'm almost sorry I started this whole thread, lol. Day 2 of woo-flu, apparently, and all is still well. Haven't gotten the PCR results back yet. What a racket this is. YMMV.

    Thanks guys. Not here to debate things. Yinz do yinz, and I'll do me. This isn't the place. Be safe, regardless of which side of the fence you land on.

    Well, damn....

    As of 0945 this morning, I got the covids. Rapid test, so they followed up with a PCR to confirm...should have those results tomorrow hopefully. I honestly think its a false positive, I feel absolutely fine. No fever, not sick at all, no loss of olfactory senses. Oh well, I get a 14 day paid vacation from work. If I really do have the coof, I give it a solid "meh".
  11. Some of the ummm...."younger" crowd. OG Looney Tunes. I guess there are more modern versions, though. Fun fact, the "E." in Wile E. Coyote stands for Ethelbert. Now you know. Lol.
  12. Some might not get this one.
  13. You will need half of the engine side wiring harness from an auto, which has the pigtails for the TCU and NSS, plus a second TPS sensor. You can swap an entire underhood harness in, but it separates into two separate halves right around the relay center area (a whole bunch of connectors and wires). The half you need runs CCW from the ECU (or the C101 connector, depending on which version you have/need), across the firewall and down the passenger side inner fender to the relay area, where it connects to the other half. The other half runs CCW from the relay area, thru/under the grill (and has a subharness for the headlights), back up the driverside inner fender and plugs (and bolts) into the C100 connector under the booster. The other half of the C100 on the other side of the firewall inside the cab attaches to the back of the fuseblock. You can leave the second half of the harness alone in yours, and just swap the "first" half and connect it all, assuming you stay within the same year range and engine configuration. edit: just reread OP's post, didn't see the "1995" the first time. That would be all HO. My instructions are for Renix. HO might be similar, but best to swap the entire harness to make sure.
  14. Any of you old(er) guys remember this little jingle? It has to be about 40 years ago for me. For some unknown reason, I had a dream last night that put me right back into Scout camp. I vividly remembered Father Dave Dodson banging this song out to us on his acoustic guitar around a bonfire, with 75+ of us young kids singing along. I have NO idea what jumped into my subconscience and made me dream this, but I'm not unhappy I did. Brought back some great memories The Cat Came Back https://g.co/kgs/9VZW72

    Thanksgiving

    NOW it is officially Thanksgiving. Hope everyone and their families has a peaceful day today. Jeff
  16. My wife's Subaru does that same sort of thing. Ill go out in the garage in the evening and it'll be sitting there just humming away. Googled it, its normal. Something, something, blah blah about the EVAC/fuel system air purge/safety check system. I eventually stopped worrying about it. It still starts and runs, lol
  17. Does yours tension via the power steering pump? If yes, there are four bolts you have to loosen to get the pump to move. Even with all of them loose, it can tend to still be "stuck" in it's original position. If you're sure you've got them all loose (and have slack on the adjuster on the backside, give the pump a firm bump toward the engine with a smack.....it might just need that little bit of movement to be able to slip the new (unstretched) belt on.
  18. Yeah. That's what I said.... Funny thing, my junkyards used to have all of their parts prices posted up on big sign boards as you walked into the 'yard. They took them down last year, so you have to ask what a part costs before you go pick it, if you're the least bit curious about what it might cost. Glad I asked.
  19. No love on the struts. They were there, but the yard charges $43/each for them. Hell no. For not much more i can grab some internet specials brand new. Lol.
  20. The engine was still lying there. I PM'd you.
  21. The MJ is gone..... They must have yanked out that whole row last night. And just that row. I tried to catch them before they crushed it, was not successful.
  22. I think I'd be figuring out why that happened in the first place. I ain't no 'lectrician but thats no bueno. Lol.
