Went and patched the fuel lines with fuel injection host and it sealed but then sprung a leak further down.

Such is life. I have added steel fuel line to my E-Bay watch list. Fortunately I now have my own tubing flare kit so I can take advantage of the fact that this stuff comes in rolls and I can just either re-use the existing nuts or buy new replacement ones. That means I pretty much can now replace all the steel lines on the truck for anywhere from $50 (1 roll of 1/4 and 1 roll of 5/16) to $100 (previous rolls x2) total.

Want to get her all done before winter.

Well, that sucks rocks.

We're currently contemplating what to do with the BHV, which has both transmission problems and a badly-leaking windshield. We only need it once or twice a year, but when we need it there's no good alternative -- it holds twice as much as my minivan, which is our usual con-going vehicle.

I believe the current plan is to buy a replacement reman transmission, and put a fix on the windshield frame that will hold for maybe a year or two, and see if by then we can come up with enough money to buy a replacement. But for the event next weekend Russ is going to have to run up to Dallas to borrow a large van from Scott -- there's no way we can get ours in running shape by then.
