This old John Deere may be 40 years old but it runs like a Deere.

The Canucks played a solid 60 minutes of hockey tonight. Schneider would have got his shutout if the ref didn’t deflect the puck with his skate to the Chicago player. A good game to watch as we near the playoffs. Hanson and Higgins with Roy are looking good as the third line.

The inside of the doors were sanded down and primed. There were multiple runs and rough areas which needed to cleaned up before painting.

Under the good has been cleaned up and prepped for paint. There was some ugly gooey stuff which needed to be cleaned up before I began prepping.

I spent considerable time cleaning up the motor area and the over spray on the chrome.

I was working in my shop and being productive. I should have stayed there and not come into the house to watch the Canucks lose a game they should have won. Very disappointing. http://canucks.nhl.com/index.html

I’ve played some guitar throughout my life but not for awhile. Some friends who play music asked if I would play bass once in awhile. I bought a Yamaha bass and a Bass Master 100 amp with 15″ speaker. Both play and sound good. Having fun.

The Canucks played a more solid game with defence getting three of their five goals. Yes, Calgary is a hurting team and will be for some time but it was an important game for the Canucks to win. Hopefully Kesler is back soon. Kelowna rockets fell 4-2 to the Kamloops Blazers last night but I don’t think anyone will write off the Rockets quite yet after their performance in the last round. Abbotsford Heat won their game.

The Kelowna Rockets will play the Kamloops Blazers on April 6 after taking out Seattle in game 7. The Blazers series will be a tough one but I feel it will go 7 games with the Rockets winning the series.

The positive post was broken on the alternator probably from over tightening. I took it to Ward’s for repair it which they did. They also put in new bearings and cleaned and checked. I put in new wire to the positive terminal since the existing one was in rough shape and too short. The torque from the motor could have broken it or caused more damage to the harness.

This is the under hood light after cleaning off the gooey black stuff getting the chrome look back. It has been installed as original.

This is not something you want to leave dangling around under the hood with belts and pulleys turning. This is the under hood light which was not attached to the hood.
