    Actually it was injector wires backing out of inj plug.Bad contact I was thinking about.
    And make sure throttle cable is seated in adjuster on TB.
    It ran before cables were removed right?

    Dancing girls,yee-haw!

    Thanks for the great RR. Did you know CW McCall was the mayor of Ouray for awhile? Nice pic of my friend Cindy jogging in Telluride. She runs everyday.

    Red Bud, definitely we should have a beer next time you are around here, or I'm over there, granted I was pretty slammed in August. @jwrover is the owner of the Distillery. Solid guy with great spirits. More random CW info. Did you know the guy behind his music was Chip Davis, of Mannheim Steamroller, that new age music from the late 70s on, big xmas music, etc? Also, Kuboske, who his character rented the jeep from is still a family of builders in the area. It did always bother me that he had the tunnel on the wrong side of the pass. It's not on the Pagosa side.

    It was the last weekend of the Rod Run in Pigeon Forge. Hundreds (maybe a couple thousand?) hotrods there for a week. Everything for sale for the right price. Good times.

    lol, no idea about that

    I always thought kuboske was made up, course I thought the road was too

    we went about 1/2 down towards pagosa, where it seemed like the curvy part was over with


    & I wondered if there was a nother tunnel

    after kyle, Andera headed towards virgina

    dad towards stecoah

    me I wondered around a bit

    [​IMG]


    I crossed a bridge and onto some 2 lanes


    [​IMG]



    a few dead ends and some u turns looking for a short cut after about 20 or 30 minutes I came out right back onto the 4lane about 1/2 mile from where I started :lol3

    I turned around and tried again

    back and forth then gave up

    at a swinging bridge I've passed a billion times and always said i'd stop

    so I did
