Default I'm baffled a bit...

Something is definately wrong. I can feel it. It's the same deal where you walk into a place and you know something is wrong before something bad does happen then it happens very badly far worse than you can imagine. Ever since I've been looking to build my truck/hot rod a 1928 Ford roadster pickup using a 3 cylinder diesel. My phone has rung off the hook and if I talk anymore on the phone, I fear it will blow up. No luck at all in finding a 3 cylinder diesel engine, NONE AT ALL. I'm not into spiritial stuff at all but it seems like this project I want to do so badly has indeed been cursed or something is telling me not to do this project. First I can't find a used 3 cylinder diesel. second, my health gets worse as I proceed to locate parts. And this past wednesday night a local steel shop not far from gets leveled in a tornado. Is it me or is the whole world against me on this one thing? I'm extremely baffled about this.

----------

Maybe I should change my approach towards this differently. Maybe I should relax and look for an alternative answer.

As a human, you may be discerning what makes us different from dogs, cats and chimpanzezes. We are spiritual beings. Personally I would explore that possibility. That being said, there are two sides in the spirit realm, good and evil. There is no such thing as good-evil nor evil-good. What I did was test it. All those people talked about Jesus, blah, blah, blah. I knelt one day and said, " OK God, if you do exist, show me. I will wait for Jesus to reveal Himself to me, if He is real." Test Him and get that out of the way first. Thats just me.

those are just coincidences.
you'll find what you need and build your hot rod/truck.
I doubt most people in the world know of or even care about what your doing, let alone are "against it"
take a few days off, or a week, from the project, relax, unwind. then start in fresh and more confident.
Hope this helps.

Maybe that will help, because I haven't done anything with the project yet concerning the actual build and assembly. Just trying to find parts alone would put the average man in a rest home somewhere. Plus Idea overload from certain relatives whom don't know their asses from their elbows trying to suggest certain things don't help out me either. I told one relative to keep her soup kooler shut today about it. I ended up going down stairs to see my uncle for a few minutes. He ended up running her off too.

Yep and here lately it's been happening pretty frequently. On a positive note, I do have a job interview tomorrow morning for a security guard posistion. I've got to be there at 10:20 am. This will help in aquiring parts and what not. I hope I get it. I haven't worked in over a year now and there doesn't seem to be any major heavy lifting or stress levels involved which is what I need.
