Well, the Z is currently missing a carb. It can't go too far without one. I'm kinda bummed. I was looking forward to driving the Caprice down. I still might be able to figure it out by them. We'll see. Otherwise I could buzz down in my HHR SS.

So I had the battery tested today by one of those hand-held testers. That said the battery is ok. Supposedly no shorted cells. I put it on the charger to see what would happen. Seemed to take a charge fine. It didn't get hot. I'm hitting the battery tray with paint tomorrow, now that it's cleaned up. I guess I'm going to put the battery back in with a layer of plastic under it, fire it up and measure voltages again. If I can get this figured out by Saturday morning, I'm gonna cruise down. Anybody have any ideas what else to check?

I actually have battery mats on both my cars! They've been great for the most part. Never had a problem until now. Probably because the battery spewed too much and the mat got soaked. I can't help but think it's because of an over-charge. Eventually I'll find out. I just hope I can deal with it before the weekend.
