  1. Carefully remove the end cover. The small nuts have some little wires attached you need to watch out for. they energize the solenoid. The big lugs generally can just come off with the plate. There is a disk that the solenoid presses against the inner ends of the lugs to connect battery lug to starter lug. May be able to clean tighten  etc a;nd be ok. Round plate can be turned over or maybe buy a kit or new solenoid. Depending on the pain of removal there is get starter rebuilt or replace. I prefer to repair myself if I can as i have an allergy to chinesium and avoid it if I can.

    All this carbon and carbon credit talk makes me very nervous. I don’t know where all this money is coming from. But Im sure we will know soon enough.  
    I’ve been approached with info on it several times this winter.  I don’t trust all this science.

    On the money-three guesses and the first two don't count.

  3. As far as forests go proper harvesting will increase carbon storage as the thinned trees grow faster and store more carbon. Good forest management is a carbon storage plus and removing all the dead wood, etc. reduces fire danger. The harvested wood if used for lumber means that carbon is stored for a very long time. Also more CO2 means faster growing trees so it is removed anyway.

  4. We had those for years. Worked good just needed a lighter flint once in a while. Shut off pilots on gas stove and just used one of those to light burner. Once one was lit the others would light. used for oven also. last couple of stoves had electric ignition and i haven't seen those for years. Worked on Coleman stoves also.

    I talked to my friend who has an auto glass business yesterday. Didn't Google auto glass or anything related.

    Today I'm getting safelite (auto glass) adds.

    They know everything we do.

    On the phone?

    I had a go fast fridge in my garage but decided to move it to the basement to make room for a shelf 


    The shelf doesn’t have enough space for most stickers 


    So the air compressor has been getting stickered


    I only have a few stickers on this one side of this toolbox, the Minibike one has to be the best sticker I’ve ever got out of a box.  



    Seeing your speed stickers I thought me too so I figured I’d share some.  It’s a mess but I should share it too, my first new toolbox I bought about 25 years ago


    Thanks for that I feel better about mine now. It looks very similar to yours.

    What he said.

    Alternative is really solid support under the axle housing, weed burner for heat, sacrificial pin just under the diameter of the king pin with a piece of rod welded to it for a handle and a big hammer 12lbs minimum and somebody who is used to swinging one really hard. This method takes two people or three perhaps. Many years ago I worked with some men who were in their 60's that had started in the quarries at 13 or so breaking rocks with a hammer. I've never seen anyone since who could swing a sledge like they could.

    Called USPS and she said go to their website but be prepared for difficulty navigating it. 

    DIfficulty? Really? Spent an hour there and found nothing helpful. 

    Anyone found success in stopping junk mail?

    Probably similar to a job and old friends son got or so she told me. It was in Quincy shoveling sh#t against the tide.

    Got that *+$#@*+ D-17 running today, finally. Only by running a jumper wire from the + on the battery to the coil. This has me just flummoxed. Doesn't matter, should be able to drive it out of the shed now! Will look into the cost of a couple hundred pounds of tannerite one of these days.

    Check the wires into and out of the ignition switch. Wiggle them around with a test light hooked up and see what happens.

    I’m here guys, all good sometimes I have enough internet for a bit. Been busy in the shop and hanging out with ST. Here’s some of the progress in the shop. ST unfortunately had a close elderly friend pass away Unexpectedly so she’s leaving early to attend the funeral. Of course air Canada being the ducks they are won’t refund or credit her existing ticket through a bereavement claim as she’s not blood related but this lady raised her as her granddaughter ffs. 
































    Looks good. Glad you are back and sorry for ST's loss. What a bunch of dicks regarding the air fare.

    I have been to auctions where the be person wanted something badly and the auctioneer knew it……


    Not an auction to go back to!

    A lot of phone bids?? I asked who the other bidder was at a factory auction and apparently he/she must have left the building..... they had to start over. Price was very good.

    Our Saab mechanic here is into ice racing, he has a stack of some rather gnarly looking tires in the corner of his garage. 

    Do they have the really long spikes like they use in Europe? They race motorcycles with those over there also.

  13. I remember the v4 Saabs would freewheel and had a lock out that was necessary in  the winter. I thought the 2 strokes did also but I may be wrong on them. I remember the two stokes ignition would make all the TV pictures in the neighborhood roll over and over when one was running nearby.

    Progress is being made. Have the walnut down to two saw logs and the stump-hole & chips. Maple has a little further to go, that log is going to be fun! Brush pile is getting big, again!

    Wasn't sure where to post this but here will be good enough. While cutting this stuff up I noticed that the 261 is cutting faster/better than the 362. Bigger saw is makiing a lot of dust and fewer chips, must need sharpened. That helped but still not cutting as good as the 261. Taking them back to put them away I notice that the 261 has a full skip chain on it. I remember buying them, kind of forgot I put one on. 362 has a more normal chain, thought I bought one for it too? Turns out, I did. Wow! Unbelievable how much faster they cut than a regular chain.





    The 261 is slightly under 62cc sold as 62cc saw. has 34mm stroke. The 362 is slightly over 62cc sold as 62cc saw has 36 mm stroke. The 261 is largest displacement on smaller chassis. The 362 is smallest displacement on next larger chassis. So two different ways to get 62 cc. I prefer the 261,262 saws and then the 372 on the next chassis.
