    we started that 3 weeks ago people were taking entire pallets when /if they hit the floor, so it was limited 2 of any item then it went to any /or 6-9am open for only old people 1 hour... they need 3h to get thru lines and walk/ride around as many stores offer delivery or pick up,we tried that ,no persiables shipped, pick up .2 day advance with 3 week wait for que and only 3 items would nest in the cart. kids went into store at 11am, 40% in stock.....dont know what people do with it,but also the BS in time order system does not compute
  6. thought about helping out in off hours at one of the suppliers. but they cant keep workers in the good times and only hire for 9pm 9am
  7. could it simply need.... good check for vacuum leaks change out hoses good flush fluid filter change.....shift sensor adjustment? another avenue of mechanic input ,same principles /design as the 318 detroit/alsn greyhound busses....?leave a blinding contrail and be 100' ahead
  8. no trouble telling now is not wasted time then it was alot of hoops to get permits for india producer to make and import the pieces it is only going to be worse in another year pelosi doesnt allow us to make castings nor import them now. if there were castings in USA would have done it for my own machines,and started uc conversions. too many in power want toss and buy every two as it saves the air right in THEIR $$$ as you ad shows it helps us scrap down and with travel /ship restrictions local scrapper is having trouble stealing running tractors for < $1500 and selling parts for $10K, so they are listed whole for $4K
  9. It goes way deeper than that. Oil wells are expensive to bring on line, and if shut in they normally do not come back without expensive re-work. This means that they take multi million dollar work, and when you have to do that several times it sure does not pencil out. Then some wells never come back at the flow rate before being shut in. it was noted this morning texas producers need $21 to stay open, like farmers they only get $ +- 10.55 of that I said this over 2 months ago all the politicians in china and denmark's pocket big oil wants USA to import not export pelosi gore burr says burn 3 gal behind the curtain so everyone is told only 1 burns in public while burning 1.5g of full strength non gmo dirty smokey would save everyone now in the "bail out" they are letting foreign (china) borrow USA $ for 0 to buy up the assets in 6 months for $.0001

    Peaceful Creek

    Jay is answering emails, said they would be shut down for a week or too depending on guidelines. Wes, how did the prices on ebay compare to direct from them? as there remains NO other search/hunting method outside online would be surprised if cheaper 0 -3% ,to get the lowest fees, BTOs, scambay, amazed off etc , require sellers to not offer the item cheaper by any method. in last year we did a 90% reduction in host/online buying,due to bloated fake costs, ...do with out. currently they are TOO big and will grow another 5x and still take the govt hand outs while spouting a 5% "donation"

    Cub carb issue

    this is a common problem, thats were excess gas should go,kits and parts are garbage, likely too much meth in gas....from running empty ,maybe pieces of rust but you would find needle if rubber tipped is bad and seat is junk, we re used old parts lying about. drip points to dirt bad tip ,next it can be a float issue or the carb has warped,seat cant close or will not hold pressure, factory # on carb ? or cheap $300 china needs to be opened up, some checking and cleaning .....different parts tank should have a good clean and new bowl gasket, screen try not to" run" it empty..... less than 2 g then on all gas eng now if more than two weeks we drain the gas, dont even try to find/change the shut off for an internal leak only,no matter how good both are today they weep photos as you go
