Hey guys, I had a busy weekend. Spend the day on Saturday sitting on Coalfire's back porch drinking beer. Nice ride, and a good day hanging out with friends.

Sunday I spent the day cursing at the stove. Not because the fire went out. Although it did but because I let it go out. Temps outside were in the 70°'s for a week and I got tired of running the stove 300°+ just to keep the draft at .01". Plus having the house at 90° wasn't fun. So, I decided to let it die and put the inducer back on. I left the pipe on the stove and after cutting the hole and drilling out for the screws I realized the screw holes didn't line up. There I lay, on my back swearing that I should've pulled the pipe off to install the inducer on the bench. I ended up just using self tapping screws and made it fit. Then I siliconed the crap out of it. So, I'm out of the club. I also made a heat shield for the motor, but when I put it on it hits the bimetallic thermostat dial which makes it impossible to adjust. So, I took it off and made a motor shroud instead. The motor is 10" from the stove, it's supposed to be 12". It should be OK. There's nothing in the box that the controller is supposed to be in but a pair of wires.

I took today (Monday) off. I had a splitting headache wheniI awoke and figured since my idiot partner had the tools already he could handle working by himself first once and I went back to bed. But, since I'm responsible I called in and used a vacation day.

More chinese goods arrived today! :lol: Having fun reading the manual & laughing at the misspellings & references to valves & rockers when dealing with a 2-stroke gen set. :funny:



For $91 shipped to my door AFTER tax, you just can't beat that with a bat! It's my second one. I figured I'll use the one I smashed during last years October blizzard as a parts unit, although since I took the time to tighten the head bolts, intake manifold bolts, & clean/adjust the carb, it runs pretty good now. Breaking down in the middle of a power outage is hazardous to equipment health around here .... :D

It's time for another episode of ..... FUN WITH CHINESE TRANSLATION :rofl: !

If it's built by Subaru, it must be on 3rd shift before a holiday - all the guys are cocked! :drunk: :funny:

When you fire each one up, they both have piston slap so loud you can hear it a mile away. Goes away once you get it hot enough though .. but I'd imagine there's some pretty wide clearances in there. I suppose they have to do that, since the carburetor is pretty much non adjustable & set to EPA standards. If not for the wide clearance, they'd all seize up solid if you didn't break them in with anal-retentive precision.

I'd just go to Worcester, put it on the side of the road with a sign that say $50. They'll steal it. :lol:



Now I have 2 of the little f'ers, so if one busts I can farm that busted up one out for parts. 8-) Can't get parts from H/F anyway for these things from what I hear, so that's probably what they want you to do anyway. I'm sure they can't sell a crankshaft for .75 cents ... although that would be SWEEEEEET! :punk: :funny:
