GASKET BLOWOUTMy newly installed gasket decided to blow out, and rip in the process.

Draining the oil.

Dropped drain plug into the bucket of oil.

Blowout in upper-right corner.

It takes a week to order another gasket, so I smeared it with gasket sealer and stuck it back together as best I could.

Nice view.
Clutch on the left, oil pump to the right.

Replacing right-side crankcase gasket.

INTERNATIONAL SURF DAYI suspect "International Surf Day" is a surfing industry marketing ploy, but Catey, Emmett, and I decided to participate anyway.

MOTORCYCLEBought myself a motorcycle to help out with the crazy gas prices. 1979 Honda CM400T. First time back on a bike since my '78 Honda Hawk (basically the same bike) in San Francisco 12 years ago. Once I get my oil leak fixed, I will be loving it.

FOR SALE Great running white 1996 Ford E-250 cargo van for sale. Ladder racks, draw-tite hitch, heavy duty tires, four studded snow tires, shelving, and cage. Anyone wanna buy a van?
