    When your excitement isn`t shared

    I bought my first vehicle a year out of high school, a 1985 W350 crew cab in 1996. Insurance was $338/year with collision. In 1999 I ordered a new Dodge/Cummins. Insurance was $448/year. I'm glad I went commercial policy, no under 25 driver penalties.
  2. My local gun shop is Dave's. They've been around probably 40 years. When Dick's came to down they had some bumper stickers made: "Dave's. Because we're not Dick's!"

    Minimum wage increase

    Those municipal jobs are probably already well above minimum wage. Ad in last weeks Shopper for a lawn mower, fence painter etc., was $21.74 plus full benefits package to start for a town employee.

    Honey Badger

    My broad axe is named Honey Badger. Long story, but it doesn't slow down for knots or cross grain.

    New joke

    Been a number of Camero, Trans Am, etc. around here on Blazer chassis'. Might even have a friend who owned one, but I'll never admit it.

    2674 not making air.

    Thanks. 8 F now. I think it can wait until a warmer day.

    Found a wrench I bought 30 years ago and never used. I think it'll work, or will get bent so it does work. Just waiting for warmer weather. Next question. Is any part of this assembly timed? It doesn't seem as though it should be, but one guy on YouTube was talking about it. Thanks.
  8. We had a bunch of Thiokols and 300-6 engines at the ski area. A Spryte and a few 2100's. They are definitely not sasquatch approved.

    I tried, no way my hand fits back there. I'm thinking 50 # tannerite......

    Thanks for the replies. I was out there today and may have put my finger on that bolt. Maybe. Might have to find someone with little hands, mine sure don't fit in there.

    But how do you get the bolt back in if you can't see it or touch it? Can it be done with the oil pump and power steering pump in place?

    So, what's the trick to getting this thing unbolted from the engine? I can't even feel the bolt on the backside of the compressor, and I can put a wrench on the back bolt of the PT pump, but I can't turn it. I have a reman pump. Thanks for any input.

    When they want it fixed as cheap as possible

    Should've used elm. It wouldn't have cracked like that.

    Need vehicles for parents

    Having to take the tire off to change an alternator sounds like a treat compared to some procedures on cars these days. Certainly not a consideration on what vehicle to buy.
