Hi guys,
Tee, it sounds like your friends got pretty lucky there.
When we were selling my dads house, we found his old, original panel was against code. Apparently “Federal Pacific “ had a large reputation for causing fires. Dad was lucky because his was mounted to the concrete basement wall. But when shown, I could tell it had been VERY hot.

Gris, I’m sorry you were injured in Nam. None of our generation deserved that. My BIL was an officer wounded twice by friendly heavy weapons fire.

I’ve got to say, I’m conflicted over the “boosters” or whatever they are. But those in the service may have a point. Most or all of the vaxxes they get are proven, not rushed to usage. That’s part of my concern over it. From the info I’ve seen, the man who’s credited with creating the MRNA protocols won’t take the vax. I’ve also gotten that from friends in the medical field. Until I learn why, or it’s positively debunked or credited I’ll delay my choice.

Fortunately the drama here has slowed a great deal. We had a meeting with a surgeon re taking my son’s appendix on Wednesday, but he hasn’t gotten back yet. Wife thinks we’re getting blown off.
Otherwise , I’m on half-days at work. It’s odd how I’m kind of glad to be back, but not. I think it’s because I’ve had a taste of the good life that’s awaiting…

Onward and upwards friends!

Happy Tuesday everyone! After reading up on the days I’ve missed, it’s good to see things are well for most.
Since my last entry my son spent another 12hours in the ER on Friday. This time they’ve referred us to a surgeon regarding his appendix/gallbladder.
I’m taking him to see the surgeon tomorrow morning. We hoping for some answers, but from what I’ve gathered the topic of Mast cells is something that’s mainly talked about, but no one knows anything for sure.
Yesterday, I got a frantic call as the daughters impala decided there was no oil in the engine. She stopped and checked it and the level was fine. She nursed it home and called me. I grabbed some tools and a new filter and blasted 70 miles. It seemed to me to be a plugged or collapsed filter. I got there as the sun dropped and was done and on my way in an hour. Reports from her say the car is now working, but the night is young.
Thinking my day was done, I got a call from the missuz stating everything in the kitchen fridge was warming and the fridge was officially on the blink. So I spent today thumbing thru websites for the desired fridge while having a fragmented discussion with her as she worked. Good news, it only took $1800 American to schedule a delivery for tomorrow.
I’ll be going back to work on Thursday, but the best part is that the Doctor wants me doing 4 hrs/day for two weeks. What makes that so much fun is that I’ve been ordered to work the latter half of my workday meaning that for the next two weeks, I’m to report to work at 3:30am for four hours/night.
I’m not pleased.
I prefer second shift, third absolutely stinks, and first shift has far, far too many white people walking around pushing their imagined authority on people. Oh, for future reference, that’s what I call first shift people that dream of their importance and come around with their entitlement, White People.
Well, that’s it for me today. Have a good week, and stay healthy everyone.

Thanks for the understanding Mat. It’s reassuring to hear some understanding from others.
It’s less than a week now before my grand re-entrance at work. I need the money is why I’m going back, but I’m having a hard time with it.. this being off every day is the goooood life.
In other news, I had the driveway here at the double-wide sealed yesterday. It was badly needed.
And lastly, I painted and put new seals in my C5 calipers. These are replacing those on the car now. I’ll go thru the rears at another time. I figure that after sitting 16 years they’re probably going to need it.
That’s it for me today. Have a good one!

Good morning!
Things were ok but now I’m with my son at the ER.

I need to vent some, so I’ll tell you now, the rest of this is a downer. Read it at your own choice.
He’s had lifelong food allergies and other gastro related issues. Since April he’s lost over 40lbs. because he can’t hold it down. This has caused a great deal of depression and acting out from his frustration.
I’m pretty sure that the medical practices regarding the digestive system and other related things are, at best just beyond the doctor sitting and pounding out rhythms on a log. It’s because of these issues he’s unable to hold a job. It’s getting worse as he ages.
I’ve been advised by friends to try the Cleveland Clinic, but he and my wife aren’t on board with it.
Dealing with it for so long has worn us all down, and I’m sure it’s not been good for our marriage. But the one major worry we share is what will happen after we’re gone. We won’t even begin to ask his sister to babysit him. She deserves a life. But his development issues preclude his independence, and group homes won’t be able to feed him.
We’ve tried different levels of counseling, but that’s just a route to pills, not actual help.
I kind of hope I haven’t ruined anyone’s day with this. I don’t want any pity for it.
I really just needed to spit it out.
Thanks.

Good to see everyone is getting out and about.
To answer T’s question, the knee is doing well. My summer vacation ends on the 20th as I’m supposed to get back to work then.
I went out to Cars n Coffee this morning. Nice weather and a good turnout. Saw a number of C8’s there in a variety of colors. Daughters BF pointed out a Lamborghini that his dads body shop had fixed. Then the owner was showing off and wrecked it again.
Otherwise , pretty lazy day here. Have fun while the weather’s still good!

Happy Friday everyone!
T, that was an awfully nice thing you did for the lady. Funny how good you feel after doing that stuff, isn’t it?
I’m not blessed with construction skills, so I try to find those spur of the moment chances to help others. It’s truly a good feeling.
We’ve got the daughter coming home with her BF for the week. Currently waiting on them to arrive so we can head out for margaritas.
Lastly, our veterinarian is getting rich this week as Ralphie the wonder dog (aka wreck it Ralph) has developed pancreatiti$. We’re fairly worried about him too. Funny how when they’re not barking and driving us nuts we get so worried about them.
Have a great weekend everyone!

G’morning Gris and all to come!
Congratulations on the milestone Mat!
As far as becoming wealthy, have you tried the Washington method? That’s where you spend everything you can, then borrow everything you can along with looking for money you have no rights to, and then spending all of that. According to the example set by the people in Washington, this is the way to prosperity. Let me know how it turns out. 🤓
Not much of a day planned here. A little stretching, maybe even get on my bicycle and find a hill to climb. After that I’ll probably hit the local cruise and walk a bit more.
You guys have a great day and a better weekend!

Mat, good catch on the vacuum leak! Tommy, I hope that fixes it for ya.
Btw Mat, what kid of scanner did you use when you helped your friend?
Anything commonly available?
There’s the dinner bell folks- Be back soon!

Hi everyone.
After a few years of his retirement, my dad said he didn’t know how he had time for a job. Now, after having been off over two months, I’m beginning to understand that comment. I’m really not looking forward to going back to work.
Tee, I’m sorry for the loss of the family member. As I’ve said in past comments, I’m at a loss at these times because I don’t like to say the same things as so many of those who attend funerals.
Just reading up on the last week, things got a bit serious. I know I’ve told you all about my funeral wishes, but what I’ve told my wife is go to the undertaker and ask him to see the cheapest casket they can get. Then see if she can just use the box it came in. I don’t go for cremation myself, but cheap burial is definitely on the table.
By the way, Costco sell caskets at a significant savings over the homes. A guy. I worked with had to buy a couple in a year. He swore he saved 2/3rds each time.
That’s enough of that.
My daily “go to work, save gas” ride crapped out last week so I took a quick offer from a local dealer and dumped it. Today I picked up a ‘12 Malibu that’s facing a fairly tough future as the sacrifice I’m offering in order to save my truck and the wife’s Impala.
I’ve just noticed I’m going a bit long, so I’ll quit now.
Have a great week Gurus!

Good morning Gris!
We’ve been getting the rain here for a couple days now. I’m hoping it’ll reinvigorate some of the brown areas, but I’m not holding my breath.
Nothing on the schedule today except a bit of domestic activity.
Have a great day Gurus.

Hi all,
Just read up on the past few days.
Happy anniversary Mat!
Thanks for the good thoughts on the leg. It’s doing pretty well now.
If anyone has noticed my absence these past few days, I’ve been working on the never ending project. I was going through my notes on it and realized I’d overlooked proper preparation of the lifters and rockers and set about to take care of it. I discovered a lifter body was not only missing a broken off section, but the piece was not visible anywhere.
Terror began to set in.
I soon surrendered to the fact the oil pan was going to be removed.
After removing the pan and windage tray, I looked through the bottom end with flashlights, probe-camera, and even mini-magnets and fingers.
No chip of lifter. All while rotating the crank periodically.
I also found my oil pump drive shaft to be substandard and had to replace it.
Preparing to reinstall the windage tray, I noticed the rod bolts of my stroker had been scraping and bending the tray. (???)
Using my nearly adequate metalworking abilities, along with a Torch and hammer, the windage tray now fits just fine!
So after three days of worry, work, a few bucks, not only are the issues resolved, but I’ve got a gashed knuckle, a bruised/bloody eyebrow (falling ratchet), a scraped elbow, and somehow my leg feels actually GREAT!
It must’ve been the exercise of getting up and down.
Time for a beer for Bob. I’m relaxing tonight!
Have a great weekend everyone!

Mat,
I agree your observation of low mileage/low maintenance. The common thought being,”I haven’t driven it much, why should I change the oil?”
Between that and Fram oil filters, I don’t know what does more damage to engines and transmissions.
I have to admit, it’s nice to be associated with others that appreciate the concept of vehicular maintenance.
Had a blood clot scare, ultrasound says I’m ok.
That’s about all the action I can take for one day.
It’s 5 o’clock somewhere, here’s to the Gurus!

I’ve only read on here and that other forum about the cracking. But it seems it was on the early and late L98’s, and the LTx cars. More so on the ‘88 and later cars.
I don’t really know where they’re prone to crack.

One final thought, is your a/c mounting bracket possibly cracked?
That’s been known to happen on rare occasions.

From here I’d try looking at the entire accessory drive system. My reason is that on an 86 it sounded all the world like the steering pump was shot. Turned out to be a diode in the alternator.
My point is
A) yes, something may have happened when you changed the a/c clutch. But after re-reading your description, I think the compressor is reaching the end.
B) if you still have the old tensioner, try putting it back on in case you got a bad one.
C) check your water pump and other belt driven components. You never know what might turn up.
I know it’s not much to go on, but it might be worth a try, and it’s free to listen to.
Best of luck, again, I hope this helps.

I’m in the midst of a project, and there’s been a couple times I’ve addressed this exact issue.
If you haven’t got the little spacers on your headers for longer bolts, I suggest you try to come up with some. Often, guys cut the old ones off the OEM manifold.
For a bolt, you can usually get away with using a factory double ended bolt that came off your original system also. You may at this point be able use the oem rod.
I went to a home improvement store and got some steel tube. The wall was thin, so as I recall I got ~1/2” and the next size down to use for additional strength.
Then I cut them to length, Insert the tubes together and use a vise to smash one end of the combined tubes. This may or may not be easy, depending on your vise.
Tip: don’t use aluminum tube as it’ll split when you crimp it.
At this point it’s just drilling the flattened part for the bolt on the exhaust, bend it, then complete the compressor end.

One thing, if you used the oem support rod, and a spacer long enough to accommodate the angle to clear your headers, just make sure you have a bolt that give proper thread-in length so as not to strip out the hole. Another way is to use threaded rod cut to length, a nut to fasten the header, and a second nut for the rod.
I hope this helps.

Hi everyone.
Just got done reading up on the past few days.
Glad everyone made it thru the weather ok.
We’re having a low key weekend here it seems. Tomorrow is
CB Jr’s 26th birthday and he’s fighting health issues again. Food allergies for the most part. We never know what will/won’t set it off.
The knee is coming along fine. Can’t seem to develop any kind of endurance in it. Standing in line at the store was a killer.
That’s about all I have today.
Have a good Labor Day everyone.

John,I too saw the Vett on BAT. It looks really good. You’re certainly going to come out much better than if I’d had the opportunity.
I hope you do really well, and I think you will. There’s an 84 with 4+3 that’s going past 12k and it’s not quite done.

Here at the palatial double-wide, I think I’ve gotten the kitchen faucet in order with a new install. The old was too limed up and was eating new o-rings. Lime-a-way didn’t help enough. Now that it’s done, I should have called someone. For my size and situation, probably not again.

That’s about it here, I’ll be checking back soon.

Hi everyone.
Just read up on the past few days, and it really goes to he!! When I’m
Not here!
Mat, I hope your wife is getting some good treatment and I hope she feels better soon.
Tee, I’m glad the driver only had dehydration. That’s bad enough, but a heart attack is even worse.
Letty, I don’t know how you put up with these people that you have to deal with. I once saw a sign in a guy’s office that said,
“Stress. It’s that feeling you get when you’re not allowed to choke the living spit out of some idiot that so desperately needs it.”

When I went to the Power Tour on Tuesday, I took a bunch of pictures.
However, the sun blinded the screen on my phone.
It was so bad I could only guess if I was getting anything.
As I’ve found, I’m about as bad a photographer as I am a plumber.
I’ve got a few that were “ok”, so I’ll try to get them to the right size and post them.
Have a good Saturday everyone.

Good morning.
Glossing over yesterday’s topic, it’s nice to know that the heat is our current biggest concern.

I too have felt the loneliness of the dwindling number of cronies. As it would happen, we have one of our “mini” HS reunions this week. We had one in June, but only one or two from out of state could be here. So when a spot opened up at the park shelter, we grabbed it as it happened to be the Saturday most out of towners could be here.

The therapy folks do wonders, as was said yesterday. I’ve been given the okey-dokey to ride the Zero Turn, but not the walking mower. That’s a big help. I’ve had real problems getting the kid to show up, and it’s too late in the season to get on anyone’s schedule.

Once again, the plumbing gremlins have started running amok. This time it’s the kitchen faucet. I put new O-rings in it yesterday, but it’s got too much lime in it to get the new rings to seal properly. I might try it again. But I fear there’s a new install in my future. Right now, it’s pretty difficult to get on the floor and then under the sink? I’m going to need to think on this one.

Fortunately, I get to end on a fun note. The Hot Rod Power Tour is coming through Dayton today. I’ll head over to the new fairgrounds to do some watching and maybe take a stroll. Between the heat and the leg, I’m not sure how long I’ll last, but I’ll give it a try.

Have a great day all, and try to stay cool!

Good morning guys!
Watching the news, or should I say, the Agenda of networks. I really do try to keep it light here, but things are getting out of hand.
Biden’s handlers have him hiding until they can come up with oh way to blame someone else for all of the problems that the Biden administration has created. Apparently even MSNBC has begun to criticize what’s been going on in Afghanistan.
Let’s not make any mistake here it doesn’t matter what’s going on today or what was going on on January 19 of 2021, what’s going on today is a direct result of an inept administration.
Rant over, and anyone reading this, you are not my enemy if you disagree.

I’ll get over it, I just hope the world can see what’s wrong and do whatever is necessary to stop the spread of violence for the sake of faith. I’m just getting sick of the hatred and violence.

Good morning everyone.

John, I did not realize it would take so long to get something like that in the auction. When you said you were going to put it on bring a trailer auction I figured it was probably going to be something more along lines of an eBay type of listing but apparently I’ve got that way wrong. I’m looking forward to seeing it on the auction, and I’m becoming fairly sorry that I wasn’t in a position to buy it from you I’m really having second thoughts and some regrets. Good luck with the auction I’m hoping the best for you.

Here in the glorious Buckeye State I’ve ventured out of the palatial double wide this morning to find the humidity at a much more tolerable level it’s supposed to cool down a bit today and be better over the weekend.

That’s all I’ve got today folks everybody have a good weekend.

Starting early today.
It’s unusual for the crowd to skip a day.
I hope everyone is OK.

Have a good one today.

Good morning everyone!
It looks like all your good thoughts have paid off. I’m pretty much off the walker and using a cane now. Went to the Doctor yesterday and he’s happy with my progress, as is my physical therapist. But I gotta say, this knee sure is stiff in the morning.
That’s about it. I hope you guys have a great day!

Letty and Tommy, don’t you wish giving A-holes a proper punch in the snoot was part of customer service?
Many years ago I was silly enough to attempt a career in sales. In one position I had, I was told stories of my immediate predecessor who was a retired 30-year Marine Sergeant. As told to me by the guys at one customer’s location, the foreman told the ex marine to F- off and turned to walk away. The good Sergeant grabbed him, spun him around, pinning him against a workbench, shouting, “Don’t you ever turn your back on me!”
The story was confirmed by my superiors.
While not part of any successful sales pitch, I’m certain many salespersons have wished they could dole out similar treatment to jerk customers.

The leg is coming along well. I’m using a walker and getting around the house pretty well. The therapist is also happy with my progress, although I’m having trouble getting the swelling to go down. All in time I s’pose.
That’s all I have for today. Happy Friday Gurus!

Good morning everyone.
I agree with you once again Gris, they are fools, or they want nothing more than to see the governed become subjects.
But there’s a lot more of us than there are of them. Just sayin’.

On a more positive note, I’ve read a bit from past days, and I’m encouraged that you’re all generally doing well.

I finally twisted enough arms and found out whether or not my short-term disability is approved. It is, but surgery was a week ago. Why can’t I find these things in a more timely fashion?
I guess that’s it for me today, so have a great day Gurus.

Hi Gris, and all who join in…
Today I start binging the TV. Pretty much anything automotive.
The leg is doing well, I think. But when it’s not, believe me, it captures my undivided attention.

John, I’ve been watching BaT and haven’t seen the ‘85 yet. I have a feeling I’ve missed a good one there.

Well, I’m getting pain killer sleepy, so I’ll check back, I hope you all have a great day Gurus.

Tommy, HAPPYBIRTHDAY!
You stated earlier that it wasn’t a big deal. I think it is and you and any of the folks her deserve to be given happy birthday wishes.

Doctor said I did well in surgery but that knee was very due for this.
The Missuz is once again showing why I made the best decision of my life by marrying her. She’s the best!

Therapy was here. She checked my knees range of motion, it’s 82*.
I know I didn’t expect that much, and judging by her reaction, either did she.

As far as the hospital experience has gone, very positive!
Really, the only tough part was having to check my dignity at the door in exchange for the gown. I just kept reminding myself that mine is not the first old guy butt they’ve dealt with.

Well guys, thanks again for the well wishes.

Good morning all.
Today’s the day. Currently awaiting the doctor so he can cut my leg off and pull the rusty hinge out of my leg and put in the new one.

I watched the shouting match between Rand Paul and Faucci last night.
Maybe it’s just me, but I just don’t trust Faucci.

Well that’s it for me. I’ll check back after the festivities.
Have a great day Gurus.

Happy Birthday Tommy!
Just stopped by to say hi everyone.
Still trying to get things in order for the surgery Wednesday.
Thought I had a young fella to cut my grass, but he’s bailed out on me. Another friend has an 18yo son. She said he wants to do it, but so far not a peep from him. We’ll figure it out. Probably not today though.
Have a good day Gurus

Hi everyone.
Letty, it sure seems like you’re being just caught in the middle on this. I really don’t envy you, or anyone at those times.

Well we finally got some closure on last weekend’s plumbing work. He fixed one problem and created another. Then I had to call and get him back two more times, and it’s now leaking from the drain. So yesterday I got one of their review emails and ripped them a fresh one. I got my money back.
So there’s partial closure, but now it’s a drain leak, not pressurized.
I still need to get it fixed, but it’s not an emergency.

Just found out I’ve got to work through the weekend. Yippee. I shouldn’t gripe about it. There are far worse things that can happen.
Have a good evening Gurus.

Thermal imager? I didn’t think those were available to us regular folks. Did you come across it during your lifelong toolquest?

So the plumbing is done and I even got him to install the faucet I’ve had waiting to go there. But then again, my wallet doesn’t weigh much anymore.🤔

At one point he turned to me and said his channellocks weren’t big enough and asked if I had a larger set. I went and got them and when I returned, there was a horrible smell, and then he didn’t even use my tool. Bottom line is he sent me away so he could blow out a fart 💨 without a witness.
I can’t imagine what he ate, but it was awful.🤢
At least it’s done and now I just need to pay for it.
Have a good week Gurus.

As I recall, you and I are part of the chorus of people on here that hate f@*king plumbing.

The b’room vanity in question has a small door. Too small for me. I can get my noggin in to look, or one arm to work, but not both. The plumber is currently chasing parts, but fortunately he’s a smaller guy than I am, so he won’t have too much problem with it. He seems to be able to crawl right in.
I’ll try to give an update on progress later.
