It's beginning

Ok it's been going for some time now, but I'm starting to see more and more references to Biofuels in the main stream. More importantly, they are echoing my point that, though possibly better for the environment there is a far greater benefit to bio fuels with regards to our security and economy. I even saw a well produced ad on Fox News for ethanol from these guys: Ethanol is not my first choice for Biofuels for a number of reasons. It isn't a drop in replacement for gasoline and it is more difficult to handle than gas, but it is a cleaner renewable fuel. Ethanol can be produced domestically with Americas massive grain and crop producing capability, and therefore has many of the same benefits as bio diesel. Anyway, getting to the point....People are beginning to see the logic. Especially the Navy: Navy Flies on Bean Juice

Functional But Rusty

This is exactly what I'm talking about. It's the oil feed line to the turbo and it's rusty. Fuctional but rusty. I sealed the ends, blasted the rust off and painted it but that still doesn't make me feel better. Onward throught the fog.

Cam and High Pressure Drive

Just a few pictures of the cam and High Pressure pump drive. The more I get into this engine the more tempted I am to tear it apart, blast all the corosion off it and rebuild it. The rust and aluminum oxide that is all over this motor keep trying to fall inside it when ever I take a cove or seal off. Guess I should stop taking covers and seals off.
