I'm sorry to hear the bad news as well, Glenn.

Today I thought about trying to get another year out of this:

If I could just figure out how to assemble it.

Smitty is selling his coal boiler...
Replacing it with a mini hydro power plant... :lol:

The little bolt holding the parking brake clip snapped...
Now I gotta pull the axles on the Sierra...
But I did get all the nice new rear disk parts...
Except for the friggin backing plate because you gotta pull the axle to get it off...
More parts...
The Diff cover is lookin' bad so that will need to be replaced too...
Will let the bolts soak overnight...

Actually I was only kidding, it's already assembled and used it today, swept up lots of crap from the yard. I was going to repair the old sweeper, the section around the axle needed to be welded back on, but the shaft for the driven gear (the brushes) was frozen in the bearing race, after a few whacks with a hammer I had enough. :mad:

Thank you all for the condolences. It was some sort of coronary event most likely, fast and fatal. He leaves behind my sister and three adult children and the youngest, a senior in high school. They have heated with an EFM 520 ever since their house was built some twenty odd years ago so he was a fellow coal burner but not active on the forum. His age sort of makes you think about your own mortality, I’m only a few years away. :shock:

Looks like we will be in the high 70s today. DVC500 was running for last 2 days, when that cold front came thru.

That is one of the reasons I use Word to type my posts up on first. Other reasons are for spell check and easier editing. It is an extra step but for me it is worth it.

If i'm typing a longer post I will usually highlight the whole thing and click copy before submitting it. If it gets lost I can just paste it again without having to retype it.

After you click the reply, go down to the post you want to quote. Highlight the section you want to quote, then click the quote button on that post.

Smitty, is that the tiller that has the electric start button inside the handle? My BIL had one that was a monster. It was rusted from top to bottom but still ran like it was new. It had the forward/reverse shifter down low between the handle bars.

My wife grows large numbers of flowers from seed most years. She hates buying annuals from greenhouses, because they force them and they are blooming almost before you plant them, not healthy. We are attempting to resurrect some flower gardens this year that we have badly neglected for the last three years. Two about 30 X 12 each, one 30 X 8. My job is spading them up and removing weeds as I spade. Lots of work.

No - pull start only. I'll have to get some pics of it when I start on the carburetor. Right now it's been buried in the barn amongst motorcycles, atv's, mopeds, & lawn equipment. :shock: :lol:

This appears to be about the same as my BIL had. The start button was inside the handle right at the end.

Wow that's it! That's exactly what it looks like.

I'll have to hunt down an electric start system for it. My uncle would be thrilled. 8-)



I finally cleaned out my stove yesterday - she's done for the season. Going to count my bag corners in a bit here, once I get some food & drink in me belly. Been at it all day building BW's. :D

And I FINALLY ran a brush down me chimney! :o First time ever! I've only been here 9 years ..... :lol:
