This morning I decided to try to change the Idle Air Control sensor.
Here is the inside of the red car.
The red car has a 305 and the base model features. It is not a carb although it looks like one.
This was kind of a transitionary motor between carb and fuel injected.
(The green car is also a 1992 and has the better setup.)
I had to move it to get to the sensor. (Center of the picture)
I removed the old sensor. The new one looked exactly the same...
I don't know why, but it would only screw in halfway and then stop.
There was something red painted onto the threads. Maybe that was it?
I didn't want to force it in, because that could ruin the threads.
The old one will go in and out just fine.
I decided to wait and see what my mechanic said. He was out for the day.
Dad still had a cold so I spent the rest of the day at the hospital.
I found a rack of books in one of the dining areas. (Most hospitals have plenty of books to borrow.)
I found a romance set in the Regency era. I spent my day reading instead of drawing.
My smart phone reminded me I had not walked enough steps, so I got up and explored.
This hospital might be 100 years old, and every inch of wall has huge, blown-up photos from OC's past.
This one is in a restroom.
At noon there was a BBQ but by 7pm the place was mostly deserted.
There are a lot of recreation rooms and big comfy chairs.
I found a pool table but nothing and no one to play with.
A lot of rooms had big screen TVs with movies queued up ready to play, but nobody around.
I think this is a dining area in the daytime:
Nobody was watching Cast Away, but the menu screen was making a soothing ocean sound.
At the far end the dining area was a dark room with a vending machine.
I was really inspired by this creepy old chair in there.
(Actually all the chairs in this place are old and creepy.)
I made a video of the chair hoping to catch a ghost in it.
Unfortunately I'm still having trouble uploading videos from this old laptop.
