Well dug for recoveries.
The sun?
Not in my world again, as I can sing "It's raining again"
Probably it will clear at dusk for the stars as it has been doing lately.
The week ahead-yes that reminds me to charge the equipment and start planning for a little road trip hunt. :headbang:

Yes for sure I'll be checking the list twice.
Not impossible to be digging with a hand digger. But it gets tiring after awhile.

Good morning all.

I didn't get to do any detecting yesterday, because I spent most of the day working on the truck. I got it tore down as far as it needs to be. Here it is with the valve covers and front cover off, finally.

I can't really tell yet whether the timing chain jumped a tooth (I'll know when I put the new chains on and set the time...), but if not, it was just a matter of time. The chain on the drivers side was floppy loose -- the tensioner seems to have failed. And the chain had starting cutting a groove in the oil pump (that shiny diagonal line at the upper right). Not good.

I got a new oil pump and fought for an hour to get the pickup tube bolts back in there, only to realize later that I had forgotten to put oil in the new pump, so I have to pull it back off again. I'm not looking forward to that, but, it's my own fault. Haste makes waste, and sometimes makes you do it over.

Hope everyone has a great day.
The rain has stopped so off I go on my Birthday hunt road trip.
Will throw a picture up if there's a little bit of a keeper showing in the dirt.
Providing there's a connection.
