  1. Most low oil level sensors work as an on or off kind of deal. They put them in the pan at a certain height, let's roughly a quart low, and when it's not submerged it trips the light. We still need the dipstick because it doesn't tell you how much you need, only that you need "some". A low oil cutoff is a bad idea on a car. Imagine driving on a busy four or six lane at rush hour going 90 to try and not get ran over, and your engine shuts down because you are a quart low. That would suck.
  2. My dad had a 93 c3500 single rear wheel with a 6.5 diesel and a 5 speed in red. Give me that with 4wd and that could be a forever truck for me.
  3. How about some pics of this hot rod?
  4. Thanks. I just recently painted it.
  5. I dont have a smoker. I have made it on the grill with the husks left on and that was fantastic. I think the smell while cooking was better than the corn itself.
  6. No advice on the question but I used some of that in my barn. I think it looks good. You can see it in the background.
  7. The stuff from this weekend was burpees bi-color corn. I have another variety planted that should get ripe next week. I'm not even sure what that seed was, a neighbor bought too much so they gave it to dad, who gave it to me. I'm gonna have to find out where it came from because it's got a lot bigger and better looking ears than the burpee corn.
  8. I just use an earthway garden planter.
  9. I have 16 rows about 50 feet long
  10. My earliest batch of sweet corn got ripe this weekend. Its kept us busy with canning (and eating). We processed about about eight dozen ears yesterday. This was our first year we've tried canning anything and our first year with any real success growing corn besides just tiny garden plots, so its been a lot of fun and learning new things. We also canned about 75 quarts of green beans this year and some carrots.
  11. Electric fence around the parking area?
  12. Didnt somebody post something similar to that on here a little while back? I remember there being boxes put around combine tires to keep the critters out.
  13. They didnt get all their money from the government, they made some selling drugs to whoever plumbed that house.
  14. I'm a big time DIYer, but cutting down trees is something I've always been willing to pay a professional to do. We had four biggish trees in the yard we wanted gone, one was close enough to reach the house and leaning the wrong way. I told the tree man just to lay them down and I will do the rest. He had less than an hour in it, i paid him $200, and we both walked away feeling like we got the better end of the deal.
  15. Yeah, but I bet he would have never admitted that.
