The Oooooooold 4 for 1 AAA Plus Trick!
So normally I post in here with regards to my nightmares courtesy of 1986 Ford E350 (351W). Just check my other threads (only 2) if you're curious about the hell.
So on the last tour, about 325 miles from home, the threaded rod that holds the air cleaner to the carb backed itself out and fell into the carb at WOT, got into a cylinder, and ruined a good portion of my engine. I pulled the damn thing out of the sparkplug hole with a magnet I broke and taped onto the end of a clothes hanger. Pulled the rod out in 3 pieces.
I came across a friend who's boss offered me an identical engine, and I could just strip my old engine for the parts that this new Windsor needs! Very excited about that, but now I need to get the damn thing back!
Anyway, I have AAA Plus and I am going to go up there (Dryden, NY; by Ithica) and call them to come tow it with me (back to Long Island)...I have four 100 mile tows that cannot be combined. I once had a friend say that he did a 100 mile tow, got dropped off, called and opened a new case, towed again another 100 miles, etc...anybody ever do anything like this? I just don't want to screw myself so far from home. but I will sleep in the thing until midnight if need be! Start a new case the next day...by now you know that I MUST have this thing back.
I am quite broke right now, and having this van back in working order could really help me! Any advice would be great!
