Hood Up

Roadside with the hood up is no fun. This is Highway 330 that climbs up to Big Bear via Running Springs. My radiator was clogged, but I didn't know it at this point. Even if it's not overheating, the carbureted 22R four-cylinder is a weak excuse for an engine in my experience. The thing is low-powered, has a noisy valvetrain, and the carburetor can't compensate for changes in altitude. The fuel-injected 22RE is an improvement, but it's still a slug and still has a noisy valvetrain.
