    Old tricks of the day

    Before I had a car with any horses under the hood and needed to "impress".. used to flip the top of the air cleaner upside down to give everyone the "4 barrel" impression on my 283 2V... had a second tailpipe attached to my 54 Ford Custom with the 232 6 cyl. The tailpipe trick didn`t fool them in the winter though... sigh.

  15. Guy buys this cherry Merc with a 2.3 4-sp for his 16 yr old daughter. I admit the 81 Zepher was no babe magnet but... It still is a nice old car today. Original paint he claims also. ANYHOW, THE DAUGHTER SAID GET RID OF IT. She`s lucky she isn`t my daughter because I`d sell it and she`d walk. And who started this "buy the kids cars and insurance" anyhow? Gnot me!

    When your excitement isn`t shared

    Bought my own wheels/insurance when I was SIXTEEN. My 4 kids all had jobs/money and bought their own when they were 16. Now I may have found them "deals" that came in the shop and owners didn`t want to put $ in them so I`d go home for supper and say "Anybody want a Dodge Colt for $150 that needs a clutch?" Or "anybody want a Bronco II for $400 that needs a tranny?" Whoever bought it laid under it with me too. My daughter bought a Honda CRV off a jockey with a 5 speed. She came home and asked me to teach her how to drive a stick AFTER she bought it! What they do with their kids ain`t my say but I think it`s a bad practice.

    Good grief Shiek! Maybe the infection was growing before you tweaked it so good you DID tweak it and go in. Had a mass cut out of my knee about the size of a golfball and all went well for about 2 weeks till it swelled up and BLEW open walking down the steps. What an ugly smelly mess. Second surgery and antibiotics and 3 more weeks of limping/laying around. Hope this round you get it licked for good! Go easy now.

    Why did I buy these?

    I don`t even know what they`re used for! 2 are 3/4" male hex (allen) 2 are 3/8" 1 is 5/8" and one is 1/2" Snap-On dealer said he took them on trade for $20. He didn`t know what they were for either. And why are there pairs of them? They`re stainless and say BT1 Santee CA on them. BT stand for Big Tool? And speaking of big tool..... eh, nevermind.
  19. Want to replace the 300w incandescent bulbs in my church sanctuary. 12 of them on 3 switches. Drawing too much amperage and switches getting warm during extended use. Sockets are standard size, not mogul size. Electric shop here says interior led bulbs have only a 1/3 the lumens the 300 watters have. Also said exterior led bulbs have a "stark" white cast. Suggestions?
