  1. More than 50 years ago one of my high school friends told me about one of the scout leaders molesting him.. This stuff has been going on for as long as there has been humans on earth...
  2. The drive shaft is fully enclosed with the chrome tube that took flight. It tore loose from the bellhousing and transmission. I understand that the transmission failed and locked up, that broke the front splined coupler. I agree that there should be some kind of tough containment several places on a shaft that length. 7000 hp at 7000rpm will be hard to contain. Just imagine sitting with your butt on a differential, your legs on each side of a driveshaft, directly behind a 4000 hp blown HEMI in a mini rod. As with many mechanical improvements over the years, it takes a failure (sometimes a death) to make the changes.
  3. Rolled oats with cinnamon, raisins and hot cocoa mix, Frosted shredded wheat.

    What are the torque numbers of the V10? I thought they were well under 500ftlbs...That is a far cry from the current diesel pickups at 800 to 1000 ftlbs.

    When they introduced the COT I lost interest. The cars have nothing in common with production cars. Maybe they should change the name From NASCAR to NTCRP. National Tube Car Restrictor Plate.?
  6. I have owned 10 or 11 pickups Couple Chevys, two Toyotas and 6 Dodges with the Cummins. The last one (a 2013 3500) is my favorite. The other trucks were modified somewhat for more power. The 2013 went the first 85,000 towing miles bone stock. The cat fell off at that point. Rolling it is at about 27,000 to 28,000# combined weight. Very happy with how it handles the load on the flat or the mountain passes. A very nice riding truck Trouble free so far.
  7. Farm,: a 600 Quadtrack in Washington wheat hills with a 58foot field cultivator. Construction: A Cat 988 and 988b for about 6 years. Lots of trucks loaded.
  8. I did not know too much about John Prine till the last couple years. Chicago Postman, and was able to pen some great songs.
  9. The common thread through all of this is trauma inflicted on a developing mind. Studies show that the younger the mind (generally) the more impact that trauma causes. I assume that the incidence of PTSD was just as common among the WW1 and WW2 vets. I also assume that those difficulties were not talked about at that time. I remember Dad talking about several WW2 vets in our town that had "Shell Shock" and had great difficulty dealing with society. Unless we have hard facts on suicide rates in the 50s and 60s we really do not know how the modern generation stacks up to that lofty benchmark. Did we have better survivor help after the big wars? I did did not serve and have always felt that I would not have survived in battle or the aftermath. This I do not know for a fact. The disappointment I have for our Government that fails to help returning Vets is huge.
  10. This is one of my favorites Has to do with drug addiction and family loss.
  11. Colder than a witches. Hat?
  12. Rubber band works good. I used to use grease to hold the bearings in. make sure to use the correct O-ring between the 4 speed and the differential..
  13. Genos garage has replacement foam and some good covers. https://www.genosgarage.com/
  14. So sorry for your loss, Some people have a long lasting impact on our lives. To call Tommy a Mentor does not seem like enough. All each of us should hope is that someday we will look at our life and know that we had a positive impact on those around us. We are just walking eachother home..
