Hydraulic Roller Lifters for a Small Block Chevy, these particular would fit late model LS type that would be in a ZO6 Vette or the like, the retro fit back to original generation 0 small blocks.

Cost more than the Cam and most Chinese Scooters

Hey guys, finally back in action, we got flooded out really badly two weekends ago Nation wide disaster, lost almost everything in the house. Was able to save the wife and kid, a bed, the fridge, some clothes, my scoot and the dogs. My folks two streets over only have the clothes on their backs, nothing else. They got over 4 feet of water through the house compared to my 3. Been a real tough one, only got the family back in the house last night. It's gonna be a slow come back.

I've been working on building up the GX200 engine on my POS Ty-Rail gokart. I've also been maintaining my first car:

I've always loved these Cherokees. Too bad they went off the deep end with their new Subaru that has Jeep emblems. This particular one has 178k and still holds that sweet 4.0 tune. My only complaint is the 13 MPG.

My next car (or should I say dream car for awhile) would ideally be a 2-door, hardtop JK Wrangler with a 3.6L and any transmission with less than 8 speeds.:wtf:

Thats for sure Fidy, can't ask for more than that, reminds us that in this life the material doesn't matter. Don't mess with my scoot though, lol

Man we were only supposed to have two days of rain due to an ITCZ, which is usual. Turned into three days of a non stop poo storm. I personally blame the wife, we got flooded on her birthday. This could have been a lot worse, the water started to come up in the roads around 11pm, by 2am the beds were covered. We were lucky I was up and started to try and organize everything. The roads were impassable so I couldn't get the car out. I haven't gotten my jack stands as yest so I jacked the car on two heights of concrete blocks. The car still got water over the seats, but I saved the ECU. Scoot was lifted onto an old couch in the garage, water came up a few inches below the breather for the transmission. Fridge on blocks, raised our bed using the dining room chairs, water still came up to the top of the boxing. We had 3 feet of water in under an hour and a half. We spent the night on the bed, but when I saw water was still rising, I evacuated the wife and daughter. Water in the road came up to chest height at the start, by the time I turned the corner to get to the neighbour's 2 story house water cut just over my shoulder with some of the craziest currents I ever felt. Had to take some really short steps, holding the daughter over my head. 

I'm not sure what would happen to us if we ever got hit by a tropical storm or even worse a hurricane. Other places across the country got water to the roof. A real mess. I don't fuss much, I'm grateful I can at least rebuild, we have a lot of support from friends and family (you all included). Got up this morning with the urge to modify the stock variator, but I need a new bearing for my dremel.
