Bucky Diary Feb 2019
Our Van Bucky spent the third week getting some major engine servicing done and he is still resting at home. I got the timing belt and water pump changed, all belts replaced and a major service as well as new spark plugs and rocker cover gasket, as was leaking oil into the spark plugs. This set me back around $1200. But if the timing belt broke it would cause major engine damage. You are meant to get it done every 90,000kms. I went to Al's Automotive in Kelmscott and was very happy with the quality of service I got. I would recommend him if your wishing to get your van checked before doing the Big Lap,
I have been sleeping in Bucky, in the front yard, with Ollie ocassionally, and this dog, keeps a mean watch. Sits up most of night peering out the one way windows. He woke me up, growling multiple times at the cat next door. The strange thing is this. I sleep better in Bucky than in my own bed.
Bucky is waiting for wife to finish caring for her father. In the meantime, I have some odd jobs around home, to keep me busy. Side Fence Installation ($97), Security Camera Installation ($299) and small modifications on Bucky.
This Boat is taking a while to launch.
