    Message for KoO on TD6 Track Adjusters

    http://www.kingofobsolete.ca/King_today_webpage2.html Feb 13 2019 "it only took 16 years to finally get around to changing the track tighteners on the td-6 known as the Kommunisat Kat which is 71 years old." Been there, done that, lived to redo it

  9. Re the latest project Make sure you check the free play in the front idler slides. If it is too much you'll likely break either the adjuster screw OR the recoil spring retainer bolts before you get to the next 70 years

    The one place to be sure spell check is in order

    Mad Magazine of old had the "complete the advertisement" theme which could be prolific here - like that not so well known Asian eatery known as "Who Shat That's"

    How hot is it in Australia 🇦🇺

    Also there seems to have been inflation of the temperature considered a heat wave. In olden days it seems to have been a run of more than about 100F (38 C) Now the air conditioned media sphere seem to have got it down to somewhere about 30 C
