I replaced my CV boot and also had a valve adjustment done. I can say the motor is feeling more “healthy.” I’ve been lagging on getting my bottom block hot tanked but IT WILL happen sometime this month. And once that’s done I will send it to Darton for them to install the sleeves. I also put my old 13’s back on. I got tired of the mesh look and needed to see something new that I haven’t seen in awhile.

Crap.

it’s a rainy day today so I decided to do some inspections under my car, and I found this…

This isn’t the first time my CV boot ripped, but to add on top of that I been hearing clicking noises coming from that side when I turn at certain angles.. Maybe its time to replace my axles?

Preston Castle

My brother and I took a trip to Ione, CA today to visit Preston Castle. It once served as a reform school for juvenile delinquents back in the late 1800’s.  If you ever watched the TV show called Ghost Adventures, they did a episode about the castle. Unfortunately it wasn’t open today but I plan on going when it’s open to take the tour..

We pulled in front of the new juvenile facility and I snapped this quick photo:

Pulling into the surrounding neighborhood, there’s some old houses that are no longer in use and boarded up, here’s one:

The old gate keeper?

Preston School of Industry opened 1894

It was really hard getting some close pictures due to the lack of space around the castle because it was mostly fenced off

and of course the roads around the castle are horrible..
