Well, if it makes you feel better Fred ... this one time I was going to shoot a possum after he burned a hole in my lawn doing circles for 4 hours non stop. Not because of the lawn, but I was thinking to put him out of his misery. Well, I decided not to play God that day and the little guy got up and disappeared a couple hours later. So I felt good that I spared him. A day later, I found him splattered all over the road.
Oh well - I tried I guess!
Wow this coffee is like mud ... and stale donuts .. aww crap! It's Wednesday!! Guess I'm a little late to the party.
That is a SWEET car you got there Greg!! Got to love that ethanol - eats carburetors for lunch.
I wish I had never sold my El Camino. Miss everything about that car. Don't know what I was thinking when I sold it, but money was pretty tight that year. That paid for all my coal for the past 2 seasons, and will pay for this one as well.
Speaking of which, if I were a betting man I would be buying coal NOW. With obama going on this enviro-kick this past week, you can bet your bottom dollar coal will be going WAY up this year.
Just did my 5th brake job in 57k miles on the Silverado. First 3 done under warranty, as it pulsated right off the showroom floor. Way to work, GM!
I did the last set in '11, but the braking power SUCKED. After 12k miles and 2 years of that, I went with EBC yellows & their premium OEM style non-slotted/drilled rotors. Even not broken in yet, with only 1/3 of the pad contacting the rotor in the 4 miles I've driven it, it already stops better! For some reason that truck did not like Wagner Severe Duty brake pads. Have the same set in the Marquis, and it'll put you through the windshield! Go figure ...
Some pics of the projects this past week. Had a nightmarish Crapsman LT1000 tractor that kept shearing flywheel keys. Exhaust glowing cherry red ... melted the hood & headlight wiring a bit, LOL. Retarded timing will do that. Then, the valves were out of adjustment, causing the compression release to be non-op which bound up the starter nearly every time. Then, there was this violent deck vibration that I could not fix. All the bad bearings were replaced, and the good ones greased. Blades straight as an arrow and balanced to a T. Well ... whaddya expect from a Crapsman .... Also pulled about 7 bushels of hay out of the transmission, and fixed some major oil leaks on that Briggs 17. Owner mows in the city, so that thing is good 'nuff, as they say.
