I'm telling you, I want this Henry so bad I could just about smell and taste it. It remains just a tad out of reach right now. But it will be mine someday soon.
That's very true. The fuel injectors on the 90s Nissan 4 cylinders only had 2 screws and a connector to remove them. They charge a flat rate fee of 3 hours plus the part!!

i've only once come out ahead when it comes to mechanics, the alternator went out on my Cadillac & i spent all weekend trying to get the old one out to no avail, even with a shop manual. i sucked it up & took it to a shop, they told me it would take 2 hours. it took 4. but luckily they only charged me for the 2 hours they quoted

as i was paying, the mechanic that worked on it came in to drop off the keys & asked me "is that your car?" i replied yes & he said "thanks for the business, please don't bring that stubborn sonuvab*tch back again." it felt really good to see the frustration on someone elses face

But what does it take to get to the injectors? I had to pull the intake plenum off my truck to get to my injectors and it was a pain.

Hmmm added benefit to hogue rubber grips, they help hold concealment shirt down over the firearm. Nice

Times like this, sitting on the sidelines, watching the back and forth, I am SO happy that my 1985 F-150 has a CARBURETOR!
