It is a beautiful day and we have the garage doors open. A Jehovah Witness knocked on the front door and Jim answered. After introducing herself she says “I see those old Porsches in the garage I have a 1982 911 that I love..” Jim and her then talk about the Pikes Peak hill climb coming up on June 30. She did not leave any fliers or offer to pray, I guess she figures our souls were already saved.

Those two bolts were loose inside of the transmission. The rods just slipped on the forks. The persons before us never tightened the nuts down. We could not get 2nd or 3rd after so many adjustments. We did every trick in the book to get those gears to grab. The master technician pulled the engine and tranny out and cracked the case and found the problem in under a minute. We will edit time now and solve to problem after the commercial break. Like you see on TV.
