    In Search Of a 22cm BHT3B Turbine Housing

    Me too me too! Last dude I know of that found one was a guy on TDR in Quebec, Canada last year, put it on his 1st gen 😎. You’ll find one Ben, I have a good feeling about this.

    Big Load

    This is our 2nd of 10 shafts loaded and ready to go about 25 miles to the rail yard where it’ll get lifted onto a rail car. Then it’ll get shipped back east for inspections and refurbishment. The shaft is right about 220,000lbs with the shipping fixture. I know the dude doing this haul, all Mack trucks, he’ll have a push truck to get it up the hill on I90. Tomorrow I’ll see if I can get a picture of it hanging from the mobile that will off load it to the car. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Fishing 2019

    Yeah, that sounds way worse than this, honestly it didn't really hurt much till this morning. There's a pretty hard rule about not drinking while fishing in my buddys boat. It's all about safety, even sober things happen fast in a bass boat at 70mph with little more than the prop in the water and all the other jokers on the water not paying attention as it is, not to mention just stepping off the side of the deck while you're fishing. That's what cabin cruisers are for

    Fishing 2019

    When things wrap up a bit early at work and by chance your buddy asks you to go fishing...it’s like it was meant to be. Got a few hrs in on Banks tonight. Nothing huge but I caught a few top water which is always a blast. Managed to pull one of these too [emoji23] The fishing line trick works awesome. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Big Load

    Another one on its way out, different outfit moving this one. Coincidentally Omega was in the rail yard and just finished loading this transformer. This is the same double lane rig they used to move one of our transformers a few years ago. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Wheel bearing?

    I've got a noisy bearing in the front end. Looks like I can order either just the wheel bearing or a complete assembly with the spindle, bearing and tone ring. I'm sure some of you have already been down this road. Any issues getting the assembly apart to just press in the new bearing? My cheap a$$ prefers to just order the bearing unless that's guaranteed to be a disaster.

    Wheel bearing?

    [emoji869][emoji13][emoji869] That’s what got it to this point. I turned the radio down one day and was all “WTH is that!?” I don’t need it to strand me on the way to the airport so I’ll probably fix it. Thanks fellas for the tips on which way to go. I watched a YouTube video on tearing it apart to replace the bearing, I think I’ll order the whole spindle. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hey Gary

    I was working on a buddy’s boat at the storage lot tonight and saw these Gems. Figured you might get a kick out of them. They both appear to be manual column shifts. Neat cars. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Got moles?????

    I've never tried to trap a mole but I get the pocket gophers every time. I have about 6 or 8 traps and now that I have them under control I only ever use a few at a time so I don't think I need any extras but thanks for the offer. Typically I scrape the mound off, find the hole, open the tunnel up a bit with a small garden spade to make room for the trap and stuff the trap into the tunnel, then I use a stick to get the trigger paddle close to the end of the wire (hair trigger). Usually the tunnel is headed in more than one direction so I get one in each tunnel. Some guys cover it back up, I never do as I figure the gopher comes back to the opening to block it off, that's when he gets whacked :). I check almost daily for new mounds around my trees, if I miss one and he gets a bunch of work done and I can't figure out where he's currently operating I'll stomp everything down, then come back in a bit to find the fresh dirt. I think the gophers are a bit bigger than moles which probably makes using the Macabee traps a bit easier for them. When I first realized I had these things tearing stuff up I used one of those oxy/propane rodenators to blast the tunnels. It's fun watching a 20' section of tunnel open up in the field, not very useful on the lawn though.

    Got moles?????

    I’ve been trapping gophers with the Macabee Old Reliable traps and I’m pretty darn good at it 😁 I might have to order one of these though and give it a shot on the gophers.
  16. I’ll probably regret taking this on but it’ll be good for a few $$ towards my boating season. This is my old Rinker that I sold to my good buddy. He moors next to me and is also tired of scrubbing scuzz off the bottom in the fall. Soo, it’ll get the same treatment as mine which seems to be working well. A few coats of Interlux Interprotect 200e, then a few more coats of VC17. Getting it off the trailer wasn’t nearly as dicey as mine was. The beam with the slings worked well, just had to saw down the jack stands a bit. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Understood. Being tall they don’t like running off the edge onto the shoulder much either.

    I probably asked you this before but...10 wide? Loose Cruise is 10’, seems a lot of guys don’t bother with a permit or banners, I prefer to follow the rules.

    Been watching EBay for a twinscan Dave and finally found what I think is the right deal on one today. Unused, in the box for $150 [emoji16] https://www.ebay.com/itm/Twin-Scan-Fuel-Flow-Gauge-/283467353972?_trksid=p2501496.m43663.l10137&nordt=true&rt=nc#vi__app-cvip-panel Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Bottom painting another boat

    How big is your boat? I called an outfit on the West side to see what they'd charge to do this Rinker and I was pretty shocked at the cost. There really aren't many (or any) options for getting this done over here.

    Bottom painting another boat

    And done. Three coats of epoxy barrier paint and three coats of antifouling. He’s a happy camper, I probably should have charged more lol. Hopefully we got the lines right, that always seems to be the tricky part. I had him take some photos while it was in the water, then made sure he was here I marked it out.

    Are there any other Bombers who drive SxS's

    I think here in our area it’s roads with a speed limit of 35mph or under, you can cross other roads.

    They say we get 300 days of sunshine in a year. This is the perfect time to do what you’re doing, not too hot, the dust will stay down a bit. I’m sure your familiar with the green dot trails up the colockum behind Ellensburg over to the Wenatchee side. I think those are pretty common with the Adventure sport guys. Might be fun with a SXS also. See how far up Mission you can get.
