Trip to Texas.

I had bought the thing a few years earlier and had done some work on it then, but never really went through it thoroughly. It still had two of the original tires on it. One blew near Erie, PA, whih I wasn't surprised by. No big deal as I was carrying 4 spare new tires, 2 of which were mounted, and had my 5 HP air compressor in a compartment in the rear, impact wrench and a full compliment of tools.

Back on the road. Next problem was in... Texas! Just west of Dallas had gone to a campground. Was just leaving and a couple of miles down the road, when there was a huge BANG and steam or smoke all over the place behind me. I fugured by the look and sound of things the side of the block had blown out.

Shut down the engine and shifted to neutral, coasted out an exit.

Looked under the hood, steam everywhere. Anti-freeze all over the place. Opened the upper covers and was happy to see the top radiator hose to the block resting at an unusual angle.

Somehow in my rush to get the thing together I had forgotten to tighten the hose clamp way back in New Hampshire! The thing had stayed there all that time well over a thousand miles with no leakage!

All I had to do was put it back, tighten the clamp and dump in more anti-freeze and water, which I had plenty of.

The trip back was relatively uneventful, except for a leaking oil line in Houston in rush hour traffic which just happened to leak on an exhaust pipe. A huge smoke cloud was billowing from the rear. Another panic which had me exiting and stopping at a gas station. Another easy 5 minute fix and back on the road. It pays to be well equipped with tools and spare parts!

The other old tire blew in the middle of Atlanta, GA, another quick fix and back on the road. Hurrah for impact wrenches!
