From Russia: Volga Carburetor and Other items to go to the Village…

The Volga we have is a carburetor style car and as anyone who remembers the old days. That carburetor has to be rebuilt once in awhile or replaced. It just seems to be an issue in life and our Sammy the Volga is no exception to the rule. In fact the rule is stronger in Sammy, because we burn propane and the benzine does not get used enough to keep the carburetor moistened all the time. Thence we have about a yearly rebuild issue that comes up every Spring…

This time I am going to take a new carburetor and a repair kit along. I will try to repair the carburetor first and if I am not happy with the results, I will replace the carburetor. Now replacing is harder than repair, because I have to take parts from one carburetor and put them on the other carburetor. This is due to being a dual fuel car. We burn benzine and propane…

I also want to find some body filler and do a little body work on the old girl. For that matter I am going to try to find if they have Navel Jelly in Russia. I want to remove some rust…

Oh yes and we have to get windshield wiper arms. The whole arm from the post to the blade. Someone broke one and stripped the arm out. So I will replace both with brand new ones and fix that issue…

I am lucky in the fact that Sammy the Volga has electronic ignition. Nelly the Volga (Our first Volga in Russia!) did not and that entailed the adjustment of points, to keep the car running tip top. Sammy is a great car and I will spend some time in the village working on her. It is the best way to keep the car good to go and Sveta and I are planning a long trip to North Russia and see some friends up there…

So I gotta run and I am going to ignore the stupidity that is called news for the next few days. I got lots to do and get together for the village trip…

Thinking for today:

I have seen the epitaxy on the worlds surface and it reeks of anger, malevolence, and resentment, plus its name is Main Stream Media…
