Another section of this weird thread -
The Dune unit went into a storage hole in Baton Rouge and I drove to Hollywood, Florida to visit a friend. The Mazda ran super all the way at 75 to 80 MPH getting 20 mpg!
About 1300 miles.

Funny, Harley, another forum member, picked up an S10 in Florida (he has a thread about it on the forum)
I went by Micanopy, Florida and had to have a laugh.:sneaky:
His S10 blew a head gasket and he replaced it in Micanopy. I kept track of his travel on the forum.

Anyway, I'm going to the Keys and next week will drive back to Baton Rouge.
I'm pretty tired of driving..

Must be something about I75 in that area that loves eating head gaskets. That's almost exactly where I lost mine and limped it up to the Walmart in Gainesville.

I really hate heat and humidity. Thank you Mr. Carrier for inventing air conditioning!
I sweat so badly that i swim in my clothes.
And of course... Where do I usually end up??
Yez, where it's BS hot.
I used to ski almost every weekend. I like it COLD!

Harley - Micanopy reminded me of your trip. Luckily for me, my Mazda runs like a charm.
I hope I didn't jinx it.
Pretty amazing that you made it all the way home with a parking lot repair...

Anyone heard from Mo lately?

Sounds like the Colorado High Country is calling. 🤣

Now that you mention it no. 😱

^^^ Colorado?
Maybe the arctic circle. Too bad it's melting at an alarming rate.

Mo was on here daily.

Another good laugh...
I towed the buggy to Baton Rouge behind my 89 Mazda dog...
Ran super the entire way.
So, the guys at the shop pooled together $5 each to speculate what the truck would put out on the dyno...
I said 80 HPs.

Remember, I installed a Weber, header, 2.25 exhaust, no more pollution control etc.

What do you think it made for RWHP?
Ha ha ha ha

75 HP
111 torque... :rolleyes:

Yeah, true. ^^^
Seen enough POSs on the dyno to run an edjemacated guess.

As soon as I said 80 HP, the guys started guessing all around that number.
One of the guys said 78 which was the closest to the actual HP number.
He won the pool... $35
Did the same thing for another POS. That time I won the pool.

The crap you do to be amused... :cautious:

Well, once again I'm off. Back to California once again.
Maybe this time I'll buy another 1st gen S10....

No breaks for the working dud... Me.
I haven't been home yet.
Off to my next assignment
Spent 10K on having my barn rebuilt and adding a nice concrete floor.
All I have is a few pix that show a new concrete floor and interior.

sorry for the Hiatus the dual port heads i have are only a step above stock 041's and they need some work, valve seat repressed in, new seals, springs, retainers and locks. but other than that they are in good shape. they are currently book ends on the bookshelf in my garage.
