The Bluebird Cafe is a small acoustic music venue a few miles from Nashville’s downtown, and Scott had recommended we try to get in on Friday or Saturday night for a songwriters circle. He stressed the word “try”, because of the size and popularity of the venue. The venue hosts some of Nashville’s greatest songwriters, … Continue reading →
We got on Hwy 70 headed to Nashville, which is quite an enjoyable ride if you ask us. It was our first chance to see some of rural Tennessee and avoid any serious traffic at the same time. The landscape has changed significantly from the flat cropfields of Mississsippi, and we found ourselves rolling up … Continue reading →
Hi everyone. Thanks to all that had recommendations about the oil leaking from the head bolts. The problems appears to have been resolved. I tried the dollar bill trick and there was no rythmic snapping of the bill against the tail pipe, I will remember this trick for the future David! While in the Nashville … Continue reading →
On Friday morning we started the drive to Memphis so we could meet up with a fellow Nova Scotian! Jamie Williams went to Dalhousie University with Drew, in the same Mechanical Engineering program, and he became a good friend there. He and Drew used to play music together at the campus bar, the T-Room, and … Continue reading →
Finally put the fresh gasket and seals on the valve cover, and set the tappet clearances (which were way off) a week ago. Once all the oil was cleaned from the area I could see if the oil seepage continued, and it did. Unfortunately it did not only continue to seep from the valve cover, but oil seems to be bubbling up from the head bolts as well (even after being re-torqued). All the breather’s are cleaned out, but there seems to be pressure building up somewhere, enough to force oil and air up through the head bolts. Anyone have any ideas?
Driving from Jackson to Clarksdale on the 49 west (blues highway, baby) was like being transported back in time. We drove through beautiful fields that seemed to stretch forever, by farmhouses and small towns. At one point we were sure that we had just entered the movie “O Brother, Where Art Thou” (if you haven’t … Continue reading →
After New Orleans, we started the (very cold) trek heading north to Mississippi. We made a brief stop in Baton Rouge, and spent a day at a local park enjoying a rare warm, sunny day. We also went to watch The Life of Pi in 3D, and we thought it was really well done. We … Continue reading →
New Orleans was everything we’d expected it to be and more. Although we were disappointed that we weren’t able to see a lot of the usual Mardi Gras events, because of the Superbowl, we still got a great flavour for the city and had a lot of fun. For our first night in the area, … Continue reading →
