My dad is 75, mom is 82. Both honery as all get out...and 2 hours away. I'm feeling your angst about the distance. Imagine 3 generations under Cecilia's hood! Memories for sure.

Regarding the catalyst, if you have not found a solution yet. Pep Boys, Jegs, Summit will have exhaust tubing. A piece of that and a cheap stretcher from the import tool place, and you can fab up a filler to clamp in place of the cat.

I know you and your dad will have a lot of good times! My folks are in there mid 70's and 10 hours away. I have been trying to convince them to move here, but they grew up in the town they are in and dad refuses to move.

Glad to see you and your dad will be making the most out of life since none of us really know when our time will truly be up.

Nope. The O2 sensor is close to or in the exhaust manifold. Unless you have a fancy car with dual cats, and dual O2 sensors. Lots of YouTube videos on the topic I bet.

I hurt the baby today.

I was feeling the Cecilia bug and pulled her around to the garage. She needed air in two tires so I did that and charged her battery for a bit. Then I took her down to the school to pick up the kids. They were pumped

But then when I got back I thought, I have a little time! I'll see if I messed up that gear connection to the shifter and maybe that's why she doesn't stay in 2nd gear.

My thinking is that when I put the transmission back together I missed when I aimed the forks into the gears so it never truly sinks into second gear anymore. It just pops back out when I apply torque.

So I drained her new fancy tranny fluid. It was dark and probably could have used a draining anyway. Check out the cracks in my brand new paint job. What's up with that? I must have done something wrong. Best to learn my technique stinks now I guess rather than after I paint her all over.

Then I took out the four bolts holding the tranny cover on.

Actually I took out three, then I had to remove one of the mounting bolts to get the fourth one out.

Then I fiddled with the big pepsi can looking gear inside. It seemed to be lining up OK with the fingers of the shift cover. I put it back on and that's when my world turned upside down. I tightened the cover and heard a loud POP!

As you can see I cleanly busted the entire ear off of the bolt hole on the transmission! AHHHHH!

One of the bits of the shift cover wasn't settled in properly and it was gapping at the top (which I couldn't see from underneath) and when I tightened it down it popped on me.I wonder if I can weld it? If not I guess I'll be in the market for another one. Dang it! Horrible timing, Fetch!

Regarding the paint, without seeing the steps in the process, it could be many things. A combo of thickness and weather when applied, surface prep.

Regarding the cover, I bet you can find one faster than learning the art of repairing cast steel/iron.

Thanks WD! I put an ad on the website here. We'll see how it goes. I didn't see anything on CL or Ebay that was close enough to run and fetch.

For the paint, I did a simple clean with SuperClean, then wipe down and paint I think. I don't think I put primer on it. Learning as I go

I would be tempted to put it back together using lots of silicone, grind a flat spot into your cover, use a longer bolt and a heavy washer big enough to extend beyond the break and catch the cover. I think the jumping out is more linkage adjustment, and worn bushings. Classic parts has the bushings.

I messed with the linkage till my eyes crossed. I can't see any way to make it stay in second any better. I'll try some more and see what happens. Tuesday I'm off but I have to take The Redhead's mustang in for a look see.

None of you guys are familiar with a 97-00 Mustang are ya?
