  1. Yes digital photo......but not digitally enhanced.........those are the real deal!!!!! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘
  2. .....negative probably reversed......πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„
  3. Ready for a morning ride on the trailer!!!!
  4. Ceiling is painted, walls primed. Getting closer. Painting 1440 ftsq of ceiling 2 coats with roller is........hard on the neck and back.....
  5. 3.8" Saturday and another 1.5" Sunday just east of Peoria, IL. Came slow and steady, all pretty much soaked in around here.
  6. I'll be there with my diesel Cub Cadet and one of the 1/2 scale implements.
  7. Agree on 4 pm......fruit or sweet corn seems to work. Man do they get pissed in a live trap.....clack their teeth together to try and scare you off......its OK Mr. Gopher, this long hollow metal tube with the wood stick attached to it will make all your worries go away πŸ™„
  8. 89 sheets of OSB later, we have interior walls and ceiling. Added the ceiling lighting so I can have good light to prime and paint...not looking forward to that job!!!

    Cadet 60

    Harder and harder to enjoy when it is always "in the way"......don't we all understand that!!!! πŸ˜„

    Cadet 60

    Don't get rammy with the fwd / reverse pedals.....reverse runs off the camshaft, and the cams break easily if you get rammy with them. Nice old 60!
  11. I spent a lot of time teaching merit badges and setting up camp as a leader. It was fun and the adults enjoyed it as much as the kids.........but I am also glad I passed the torch πŸ˜€
  12. They are Eco OR Boost.......NOT Eco + Boost!!!! Put a boost gauge on one and watch instantaneous mileage read out.....when you cross from vacuum to boost your fuel mileage crosses back the other direction!
  13. Don't forget computer controlled ignition, variable valve timing, 4 valve heads, electronically waste gated turbos, variable transmission shift patterns based on load, 2x and 3x overdrives. It's a lot more that cubes and rpm these days to be both powerful and efficient. For my 10% 5000-6000# trailering and 90% road time the 3.5 EB is the perfect ticket. YMMV....
  14. Well i put 2 and 2 together added 3 and carried 5......and came up with 22,000 telephone poles per hour!
  15. "Sorta lit him right on fire.........." Best line of Wolf Creek Pass......"Chromium plated fully aluminiated genuine accessory shift knob fell right off in his hand...........I said, you wanna screw that back on there Earl?"
  16. Boone and Scenic in IA is a fun ride, so is the steam train out of NC near Gatlinburg TN. Have always wanted to do the Silverton......if anything to see how accurate CW McCall's song is 🀣
  17. I was that guy, then I got a 3.5......not going back .....ideal for my mixed usage.
  18. Totally agree. Having owned both motors in F150s, you flogged the naturally aspirated 5.0 a lot more to get the same power. Waste gated turbo is getting the torque early.
  19. 3.5L makes power under 4000 rpm, mostly between 2,500 and 3,000. 5.0L needs to wrap up to 5,000 rpm to make equal power. They do "grunt" as said above. Like a big giant playing with a toy car.....one great big shove.....
  20. I surprised my son with the Henry 22LR Eagle edition......he was thrilled! Great way to celebrate the achievement!!@
  21. Congratulations! A real achievement. I have sat on many Eagle review boards...most Eagles are the real deal and their projects and board answers reflect that. I was very proud when my son earned his, I'm sure you are too.
  22. Everything that grows destroyers.......garden, fruit trees, corn, beans.......four legged plagues....
  23. ...boldly......."From the land of sky blue waters!......" That commercial will always stick in my head....
