    Well this is COLD I think -40* at 3:15 this morning ! I was going to go to Bible study today NOT.
  2. I have a 15" Grizzly and my buddy has one also. His has a retro fit spiral cutter head and is much easier to change cutters. They are very good machines. You must tune them up when you first get them.

    May Gods' peace and comfort be with you all. Jesus, give this family a hug from us all.
  4. If you're in the building while the heater is running you're breathing carbonmonoxide and spray painting with it running is a death wish!!!!
  5. Just wait till your 70, you'll be making short small wood !!!
  6. There were some young folks sleeping in card board box's that night just to see what the homeless have to put up with!!
  7. I've studied this stuff for years and just love it. Built a model railroad featuring logging back in the 70s and am now going to dispose of the stuff before it's too late.
  8. All our locomotives had one of these in the cabs used to adjust brake rigging if needed.
  9. Lord be with this family and give them peace and comfort.

    Yes, now is the time to tell him about Jesus saving grace and love. Lord Jesus, be with them now and bring them peace and comfort.
  13. For years my wife and I do all the tree trimming outside. We have thousands of lights on the trees, bushes, and we made 32 mini trees out of upside down tomatoe cages on a rebar stand. Some twinklers and others multi colors. We have Sgt. Pepper riding on a old F12 in the corner of the yard so he's in charge of the lighting. We turn on the lights at Thanksgiving and off at New Years. They are on photo cell timers, on at dusk and off at dawn. Looking at all your nice trees in your homes is good but, I see one thing missing NO TRAINS AROUND THE TREE!!!!
  14. May Gods' peace be in your homes this season and in your hearts.
  15. I just heard about the fire and devastation in Kansas. I think we should be praying for those that have lost their farms to this disaster! Are there any on here that are involved? A lot are in need for cattle feed I believe. Are there any fund being set up for relief?
  16. Looks just like my 870 Remington.
  17. It's a mystery to me also as to how they get oiled ! There is no spit hole on the rods only through the caps which point toward the cam. When I got this engine all four rods were locked up in the pistons.
  18. I don't know if it was rebuilt or not. # 1 & 3 pins were galled so I pushed the pins out and of course the pistons are ruined so ordered new ones.
  19. This is a chevy 153 engine. When I assembled the new pistons to the rods they were loose in the pistons. I pre lubed the engine with a drill and had 40# oil pressure, then I cranked it over several times with the starter. Next I started it and it ran about two sec. and died. Would not crank over again even with a two foot bar! pulled the engine out, took off the pan and found number 1 & 3 rods will not move in the pistons. Pressed the pins out which ruined the pistons. Why this happened I know not !
  20. How do you loosen up wrist pins in the piston?
  21. I pulled the engine and put it on the stand, took the pan off, loosened the mains one at a time. Still could not turn the crank ! Loosened the rods one at a time, still couldn't turn the crank ! What the HECK !!!! Pulled the main caps off raised the crank up a bit to unmesh the gears so I could turn the cam. It turns okay. Lowered the crank back in place put caps back on just finger tight, now I can turn it with a bar in the ring gear teeth but it creeks as it moves with two less tight spots per revolution ! It acts as though the wrist pins are too tight in the pistons ! When I got this engine it was locked up. When I took it apart the rods would not move in the pistons. The pins are shrink fit on the rods and supposed to be loose in the pistons. Now they seem to be tight in the pistons. Thet weren't when I assembled them ! What happened?
  22. Here in Duluth 4 am 40+ wind rain and the lowest barrometer reading I've ever seen since keeping records 1970 ! 29,06"
