Yeah, it appears that once or twice a week at the library will be plenty to keep up with the action! :lol:

I actually have a secondary motive for cancelling all my at&t services, apart from the fact that they pissed me off bigtime. Beginning next Feb, I will be getting a soc sec check every month. I am trying to survive until then without getting a job. I've made sort of a game out of it; taking it as a challenge. I'll save $1500 on at&t during that time, which greatly increases my chances.

I am not destitute, I have options, but I am in a rather unusual situation. I have zero dependents, no one is counting on me, and if I go down in flames, I take no one with me. If I had kids or a family I would never consider trying this, but it's just me so I can take some chances. "Freedom is just another word for nuthin' left to lose."

On a Ruck-related note, has anyone played around with different-length manifolds? Just curious, thinking about trying a manifold that's about 15mm longer than stock. :meh: (Please allow one week for a reply :wink: )

I modified a PZ20 manifold to attach to a stock carb, and port-matched both ends. Also modified the venturi on the carb, sort of like what Ronk did, but not as extreme. Dremelled it out strictly on the sides so it doesn't doesn't effect the slide or butterfly, and tried to keep the taper leading to the venturi roughly the same. May not have enough room for an intake runner or filter, but I have notched out my rear fender for more clearance, so maybe something will work. Strictly an experiment, something to keep me occupied during the recent flash-floods. All spare parts, so nuthin' to lose. :meh:

We had some crazy flooding, I've lived here all my life and never seen it this bad. My house is in a high spot, so I didn't get any damage, but there were roads underwater that never have been before.
