Default Lost but not Found

The short block is assembled, except for the timing set. The cam retaining plate is held on with star socket bolts. I bought a set of sockets when I took the engine apart but can't find them.
A while back I attached the tranny adapter to the extra block using some of the special fasteners that came with the adapter. Now that I'm getting ready to put the real engine in I can't find the rest of them. There's a couple dowel pins, some shoulder bolts and other stuff.
I think I'm ready for the memory care wing at the Old Hot Rodder's Home.

I always thought misplacing tools hot rod parts was perfectly normal behavior. If you are right, I am at least 50 years past due for lock-up.

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.

I can relate to the problem Bob. I spent two days looking for a set of Stewart Warner guages that I know I have some where. Still no sign of them but....
I did find the special torque converter bolts that I couldn't find when I put the transmission in my '47 Dodge shop truck. That was like six or seven yrs ago I think.

It's enough to pi$$ a guy off ain't it.

It has nothing to do with age, bob. The missing will turn up, soon after you replace what you're missing!

Its CRS (can't remember squat) - get a note from the Doc and get a card so you can use the handicap parking spots

Another side effect from too much birthday cake candle smoke.

We're in that boat.
I needed my stud gun to pull some dents but, as usual, I couldn't find it.

Every Monday a couple buddies and I go out for lunch. We try to go to a different place each week. One of the guys, Jerry, just had his '32 painted and he is now reassembling it. I took a snap of it to share with you all.
