Festiva ignition coil update

ignition henThe 1990 Ford Festiva is still chugging along without that annoying problem of stalling. I'm thinking it may have been possible that moisture was creeping in through a small crack in the seal where the new wire seats up with the coil. Hopefully the silicone I added will keep that area nice and dry.

This Plymouth rock hen expressed some issues with having her picture taken today, but I explained how it's been weeks since I've had a good chicken picture and that seemed to put her at ease long enough to allow a few shots.

Thanks Jennifer

I appreciate your kind words. I've had a soft spot for chickens since the first day we got them. I can't say I understand these new fangled robotic chickens the young folks seem to be so into these days. Give me an old fashioned, organic, biological chicken any day over those fancy psychotronic egg layers.
