#654659 Dry side - Wet side and back

Posted by Woodenhead on 23 February 2018 - 09:21 PM

All in all a good day, called for snow in the afternoon and the goal was to stay ahead of it. Made it to Hoss about 10:00 and dumped the wood, would have been nice to visit longer but thats the way she goes.
Up to my buddys parents, loaded the tractor, visited and hit the road. Stopped at the Junk Yard Diner for a burger, started snowing. Was snowing and getting icy getting going over Stevens but we were doing good to be on the front end of it. Wasted 1/2hr at Costco and home by 5:30.

12mpg aint so bad either all things considered, Im happy my old truck got me through another day. My buddy is happy he got a nice little tractor.

#654441 Chrysler extended warranty, money well spent.

Posted by Woodenhead on 19 February 2018 - 07:07 PM

They dont make them like they used to. Even with the Warranty Chrysler is making money off the POS they built. The Warranty insures you take it to them. Corner the market, so to speak.

No doubt about that. I did save a bit by buying a year old vehicle at the time. The warranty is pretty inclusive and covers pretty much everything except wear items with a $100 deductible. It gives me some peace of mind not worry when the POS is gonna cost me a boat load of cash. Like this stupid camshaft.

Since its lifetime unlimited miles I think my 10yr old will be driving the POS when he gets his license :D

Dang, thats nice! I forgot what a clean engine looks like, probably dont even have to wash your hands when youre done.

Is the billet oil cap going to be the trade mark of work done at Torquemonkey garage?

I know a guy who wood love some wood. I know your doing the quicky over and back so if you don't have time no worries.
I was going to ask you yesterday but figured you wood not have time for wood so I didn't.
I am completely out. If I had time I wood make a wood run over that way for wood myself.

LMAO. The thought definitely crossed my mind Hoss. The wood has a few factors at play. Need to see if I wood have the time to get down to the orchard to chuck as much wood a woondenhead can chuck...if a woodenhead can chuck wood. Also wood need to see how the ground is, I woodent want to get stuck or tear up the orchard, tis the season.
We wood also need to have some help to unload at your end. Its a couple hrs chucking wood for one man to load the 20x8 flat part of my trailer 2 deep. If I get wood its all or nothing, no point in a part load.

I realize youre not twisting my arm here but if I can make some wood happen for you I wood.

#654116 Apostrophes

Posted by Woodenhead on 12 February 2018 - 02:25 PM

At some point recently when I use the mobile version of the page on my iPhone it stopped recognizing apostrophes. If I type Ill, well, theyre, hell... it looks fine in the box but they vaporize when I click post.

Not the end of the world but the technical writer in me strives for somewhat proper punctuation, then my mind gets blown when it disappears :).

#653890 Redline MTL quarts synthetic oil 14 qrts.

Posted by Woodenhead on 07 February 2018 - 12:00 PM

Im heading over to Monroe in an hour for a dental appointment. Ill probably be in the area until at least 1pm, maybe later, depending on how much work they want to do. I can stop by if anyone is home and something needs to be brought to Hosss place.

Ill call Jon and see if I can PayPal him for the oil and pads.
Left him a message.
Scott, Ill PM my number to you so we can communicate if this works out in the near future.

First question I ask in a job interview Do you change your own oil? If the answer is no, there is a pretty good chance you wont be called back. It has nothing to do with Cost.

I had a guy in an interview ask me if I could explain how to make a gas engine diesel. It was a mechanical designer job out of college but he saw I had an interest in auto mechanics.
I said Uhh, I guess its possible but youd need a lot of parts, higher compression, probably a different head and some way to inject the fuel. Lot of work to build a POS, I think GM tried that once.
He laughed and said, I meant what causes dieseling...like when you shut the key off and it keeps running.
Me: Oh...too much carbon build up, too hot, running a bit rich, keeps burning the fuel when you try to kill it. My POS 318 does it all the time in the summer.
They offered me the job but I turned it down.

That was easy!  Beats the  :dump: out of dealing with the fuel return line on a 12V while away from the house.

#652543 WTB tool box

Posted by Woodenhead on 04 January 2018 - 08:13 AM

Thanks Travis, I googled it and I think I found the box you have.  Sounds like a more than fair buy but I think I'm going to go more in the direction of a cabinet/work bench setup.  If you do decide to post it up for sale, text me a couple pics and I'll put them up for you.
