  9. then there's cold weather issues too takes a lot more juce to run a unit at +-0 degrees than 50 degrees Mike
  10. one thing we use to do to get Ip gen sets going in the cold was to crank it and feed Lp, map gas or acetylene [A LITTLE] onto the intake make sure you lean back wen you do it some times the RPM sensor will kick in and start the gas controls on the engine if it starts spinning enuf. also nice collection of fords stronger 800 kinda partial to them,, lived just south of the Ford assembly plant in Romeo Mi. got a story to tell about a Ford 4000 and a car hauler Mike
  11. before I was sidelined in 2011[and retired]due to injury we had 12 collage boys working as labors at the NPS in Calumet $15.00 Hr starting,, ,turned into full time baby sitting just a few incidents; fall protection so loose he would hit the ground before the rope tighten up. told them don't stick your hands in any were you cant see 1 did it any way and had a bat attached to his hand. starting time is at 07:00 most were on time or dove to be at the back of the truck for morning safety meeting. cell phones were a problem,,, chipping hammer in one hand and cell phone in the other cleaning out loose mortar joints for repointing. in the truck[crew cab] after lunch had one sitting behind me and I could smell pot on his breath. dropped them off at job site and went to office to consult with the park super. had him put the fear of God into this young man. he was going to write his nursing exam the next week if he got busted his career was over,, told the super I didn't want to screw his life up just shake him up. so he finished chewing on him and sent him back to me he turned out to be the best worker after that[ yes sir , no sir,, can I get you some coffee??? Mike
