I though my insanity was confirmed a long time ago, when I started work on the 6.9. It just deteriorated from there.
Of course, I could have put it in my bedroom, but that's full of interior parts.
I don't think I'll pull the tensioner any time soon, as I'd like to organise the salvaged parts under the house... I'd also like to be able to use that bench for rebuilding the 380SE's transmission and whatnot, in the near future.
It will be a while before that M117 is put into use.
