Down for the count

Well the inevitable finally happened yesterday. It's been 90+ here for about a week and my already leaking HGs finally gave up. She died in traffic, but I managed to get her out of the road and into some shade. I let it cool off for about 20 minutes and made it 90% home. Ended up having my buddy help me tow it to my house with my 4cyl S10

I guess that is the foot in my ass I needed to get motivated on the swap. Junkyard scouting this weekend!

It'll be a 5 speed 4.2L next time she is under her own power. Been slowly researching and collecting. Time to up-shift and get the ball rolling.
