Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Thanks, I grabbed a coil just in case but I'll be more than happy to return it. I've got to do this in my driveway tonight so my wife can get to work the rest of the week, so hopefully a new injector fixes it. I'll clean all contacts on the injectors and take a look at the harness assembly since I've got to take the whole damn thing apart anyways. Why does it always have to be the hardest one to get to?
I wouldn’t be able to pick an injector out of a lineup.

Thanks big john and LAJ. No more misfires on my test drive tonight. Did plugs, too. Felt a lot zippier!

My guess is that the plastic retaining tab on the injector connector failed so it was making intermittent contact. I went ahead and replaced the injector since I was in there, but I didn’t have a new connector so it’s got a zip tie bandaid that I’ll remedy on Sunday.

Ended up having to use the coil I had bought since one of the connector retaining clips broke on the coil side of that one too, and then a second one broke about halfway off so I’ll fix that properly when I do the injector harness work.

At least now I know exactly how to pull the intake and fuel rail now, and since I won’t have to remove the injector again I shouldn’t smell like gas after I do that work.

Crimping is the best splice method for engine stuff, right?

I came in tired today but not completely wiped like yesterday. I am completely wiped now though. All afternoon in the wood shop. A good wiped.

A lot of that plastic stuff gets brittle after so many years. Some recommend heat shrink connectors for splicing but I soldered a lot of wires, too. Some are against soldering but I did it a lot without comebacks. Solder and use heat shrink tubing, works in places where you can't get easy access.

The good heat shrink connectors will make a complete seal when you get them hot enough.

I started using gloves whenever handling fuel or battery acid after years of smelling like gas or diesel. I think diesel is harder to get rid of than gasoline. I use chain lube that has kerosene or diesel in it and I always glove up so I don't smell like that later.

Oh I forgot about those heat shrink connectors! So much easier than dragging a soldering iron out and forgetting to put heat shrink on before you make the joint.

West coast bands should do more drug testing. SMH.

KCB members always maintain a professional demeanor, obviously.

All this. I've never had an issue with crimping, but a nice set of Klein or Thomas and Betts crimpers are key.

Finally got the Dodge towed to a mechanic. Fingers crossed.

It turned out to be SO SIMPLE that I feel stupid for putting it off. This happens all the time with anxiety-driven avoidant behavior, unless what you're putting off is something that gets much, much worse if you put it off. Then you feel REALLY stupid for putting it off. But, if emotions always yielded to logic, the self-help and counseling industries would never have existed.

One of my useless goals was to get my Garmin to report 60. After 5 years of trying, it happened today after my Mt Hamilton ride:



It probably will go back down on the next ride.

killer, nice work! How does the garmin device determine VO2? Is it backing out the cardiovascular stuff from power and weight?
