Re: Betty White, the poor neglected race car

Being driven crazy about something has its own issues, assumptions are made, I did that(spark plug wires), it is done move on, this is especially true when making big changes, I think I have done that a 100 times, there is no way I got that wrong, but while your doing that you are thinking about wha...

Re: Around Waynos house

I figure I will keep doing the little jobs till I cannot climb a ladder or get up on my feet and walk without pain, pain will likely determine when I retire unless something else happens before the pain. Yesterday I replaced some tiles on one house, then I went to another house and cleaned out the g...

Re: Around Waynos house

There is no difference for me as I am semi retired, I cannot do big jobs anymore, it makes me sad when I see the work being done because I am unable to do it now, I have a regular customer that had his tile roof pressure washed just recently, I was over there cleaning the gutters out and replacing t...

Re: Around Waynos house

I have always needed saw horses, but I seemed to always use them for something permanent and then they eventually rot outside where I am using them, this set is going to be kept available so I don't have to bend over and work on the ground like I usually do, when cutting a 2X4 or pieces of metal I p...

Re: Gray Man, Inc.

It likely had to happen at some point, but this would have been a bit long of a wait for me, I would just want them to finish their part so I could start on my part.

Re: Around Waynos house

I worked on the tractor again today, my issue was the lawn mower blades would not quit turning(half speed) and it annoyed me, it also made it hard to start the engine as the drag made it turn over too slow to start when cold, so I lowered the engine around a quarter inch which would be a half inch o...

Re: Around Waynos house

I had pneumonia last October, but I have concluded that was caused by breathing in fiberglass, I don't know this, but it is a good guess since I had cut that bed cover a week and a half before without wearing a mask(very stupid). I went into a lot of places a couple days ago looking for TP, I finall...

Re: Around Waynos house

I picked up some scrap wood from a building site less than a month ago, decided to make a couple saw horses this morning/afternoon, I made them fold-able for easier storage. https://i.postimg.cc/xCzmChcP/001.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/Bb515F5L/002.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/bY1bjXXy/003.jpg https://i.po...

Re: Around Waynos house

I mowed my lawn and my neighbors lawn today, I was not very good at selecting the height and ate into the ground a few times, while he and I were talking about how it would be nice if I had some kind of gauge to control the height of the deck he grabbed this mechanism I had tried moving before witho...

Re: Escape From the Prison Planet

Your going to have some time on your hands from what I have read, if you cannot work on your shop you might as well do some riding, I have seen photos of that place before, it's in Oregon. I never had a dirt bike when I was a kid, probably for the best as I was a klutz, I likely would not be here if...

Re: Around Waynos house

I got the engine part of the tractor finished today, I have it wired so I can start and stop it from the seat except the first cold start as I have not even looked at the choke, I am using what it has and likely will continue to do so as I have to lift the hood and turn on the fuel anyway, I have al...

Re: Around Waynos house

I forgot to mention that I bid on a used Fireball XR3000 and won it, I got it for $20.00 plus tax. I bought it in case the one in my 1963 Datsun 320 kingcab in case that one wired positive ground gives up, it is a complete kit. They did cut the wires going from the distributor to the unit, but I can...

Re: Around Waynos house

I got the hood on with that tank, but the tank was raised 2 inches because of vapor locking, now it is back to stock height again and it may start vapor locking again, if that is the case I will figure something out when it starts again, maybe put a "Y" near the carb with a restriction and have a re...

Re: Around Waynos house

So, what I did for the last two days is put my extra pressure washer engine in my tractor because I could not get that engine to start, it ran last year but there was no spark and I tried a lot of things, I even smoked a coil trying another one, that engine was wired weird, I gave up. I likely had t...

Re: 1962 Datsun U320

Well I pulled the U320 truck out of where it was being stored and cleaned that area up, put air in all 4 tires as 3 were low(not flat), I had bought fuel a few days ago so I put likely around 4 gallons of non-ethanol fuel in it total, first I checked the tank bottom and it was good then I poured a g...

Re: Betty White, the poor neglected race car

It's been too cold for me to work outside/in the garage the last several days, very strong east wind the last couple days, it's supposed to warm up again this week. I have no idea what your talking about most the time when your dealing with the electronics's so I don't have a lot to say, but I am re...
