    I had two hours of daylight to search for a bear this evening. Best I could do was find a track.

    Yesterday afternoon into the evening I visited a place in D2 hoping to see a moose. After about 30 minutes of sporadic calling I saw a small bull on the edge of the cut. Something had him on edge as he was 300 yards out and moving fast. His antlers blended in with the dark shadows. As he entered the woods I could see his hind end didn’t have a white patch which is how I knew it was a bull. His coat was extremely black and shiny.

    Left the cut at dark and visited P&H truck stop in Vermont for dinner.

    Chore day today. Mowed a lawn, trimmed hedges, replaced brakes in the car, and best of all my daughter and I started the 6.2. I was very surprised how easy it started. We hooked up two batterys, removed the air cleaner, then gave it a wif of starter fluid (either) . I’m not a big fan of starter fluid on glow plugged engines. Did what I had to do.

    I bypassed the glow plugs and she fired up, shut down, though started back up and idled fine. I have what sounds like a rocker arm issue to figure out and will get there soon.

    Some things are best left a mystery. Especially where I have already told her how much of a PITA these old diesels are during the winter.

    I agree. I'd much rather have a 350 than the 6.2. 350 crate engines can be bought for relatively cheap. My father in law just put one in his 1970 Blazer. It runs perfect.
