I remember helping pull a 455 out of a 1970 Olds Vista Cruiser at the gas station I worked at as a teenager. It took 5 of us to move it, remember it seeming as big as a washing machine.

Yup, they're big. I've pulled and installed several of them....by myself. No more.

Run , if you can and get checked out! If it itches rub a little spam juice on it, just to relieve the pain. Good luck with that.

Hi Jeff and Jackson Rancheria fans...Is this rally sold out? Is the entire resort full for the weekend (Friday & Saturday) of the rally?

This particular forum rally is very popular and has sold out. We do have a standby list. Some folks are attempting to make their own reservations with Jackson Rancheria during the rally dates outside of our group reservation.
I encourage anyone lurking and thinking of attending the rally to do the same.
Jackson Rancheria does not have a standby list nor a call back policy to notify you of any openings.
Most weekends at the Rancheria are sold out.

Thanks Coastalview...You are a popular bunch! I was able to reserve Friday October 12th in a pull through, regular section. I figured we can just dry camp in the casino parking lot on Saturday if we can't get a reservation for that night.

The woman taking my reservation said that the casino parking area for RV's is filled with construction equipment for the summer but the job is scheduled to be finished in September. Therefore, room to park there as a backup plan Saturday night.

Looking forward to meeting everyone again!

Is anyone going on to attend the rally in Kernville the following weekend?

We are going to both Jackson Rancheria, and Rivernook in Kernville.

We'd love to see anyone from the Nor Cal group join us.
Stretch out the party over two weekends I say.

There should be plenty of room left at Rivernook. Riverfront is full I think, but the pull throughs are very nice. And there are lots of spaces that back up to creeks.

I had a closer look and I don't think it is the seal. It's the oil pan gasket. I am gonna try to tighten it.
