Murphy came to visit.

I put on some new headers last weekend and I was kinda in a rush so I didn't change out the exhaust gaskets that were on there. Drove it, and had a lot of popping. Got to looking and found I had exhaust leaks on both pipes at the heads, so they had to come clear off again, install the new gaskets I should have done in the first place, and re assembled it. All in 104 degree weather. I figure that's my punishment for being a dumb ass. I tell ya,that Murphy guy comes to visit at really inopportune times.

Illegitimus non carburundum. Or something to that effect. Jack of all trades, master of none.

One of my favorite rock n roll lines is; "I've done all the dumb things." Unfortunately, in my case, I constantly update the stinkin' list.
