34 degrees with no wind or rain...what a winter! Last night marked exactly one year since our house got hit by a serious blast of wind that knocked out a basement window. It won't hurt my feelings if that never happens again.
Where is Smitty? I have a job for him to tackle...just the kind of thing he likes
. The driver's side exhaust manifold on my Grand Marquis blew out this week. It sounds like I am driving around firing an M16 out the fender.
I took one look at the seriously rusted studs and decided this was a good job for someone else. I hope the studs don't break off in the head.
Nice looking dump trailer...what are you pulling it with? When I got my trailer the first thing I did was pull all the hubs and repack the bearings with a high quality grease. Good thing I did...I think the factory was running out of grease the day it was assembled, it looked like someone just dipped a fingertip in some grease and wiped it on the bearing. A bearing-repack will also give you the chance to put a little anti-seize on the wheel studs. If it didn't come with a fullsize spare, you might as well locate one. They never seem to go flat at home...
Speaking of trailers, I decided to sell my 16' flat-deck car hauler, so I'm finally going to put the new tires on it and give it a good once-over before taking pictures and listing it for sale. Not much on the agenda for this weekend. Probably stack some coal bags and maybe wash the salt/sand off the cars.
