I'm super picky about fat in my meat, so I tend to prefer a leaner cut. I mean I'll still eat prime rib if it's in front of me (You have no idea how much I love steak) but yeah, I'd prefer some other style of steak

Didn't get nearly as much done on Rick's car as I had hoped.

Did the fuel filter without any issues except having to replace one damaged section of hose. Had spare hose on hand so no biggie.

Spark plugs got complicated because the #5 plug, which was time-serted by some shop a while back, decided to pull the insert along with it and then refused to separate from it. So need a new insert if this plug is going to be changed. Not much time wasted, though.

Then got to the radiator replacement. Fan clutch would not release even after liberal application of WD-40 and prying to the point of bending my largest screwdriver. Wasted over an hour on that until I was able to lift the shroud enough to detach the fan from the clutch. Replaced radiator and ET easily, but again had to struggle with fan and shroud. Finally put it together, bled the system, and noticed that the coolant temperature sensor is leaking. 5th car this winter season.

Meanwhile helped Nathan with a few diff-related things on the car. Also helped Dru figure out how to get his worn camber arms apart.

Now exhausted.
Don't forget how much of a help I was
