    Run one past the oh great ones

    4 years? Wow, i didnt realize how time flies. So this 3 point modifucation has worked flawlessly. There has been seepage where oil has bypassed the pistons, but one night with upward pressure on cylinders and it has been reset. Happy with how it works.

    Shortening a chain saw chain?

    Many shops that sell chains make them up as well, the 5 or 6 dollars to have it shortened is less than buying another chain. i have made 100’s and 100’s of chains and its easy with the right tools and correct repair links. Repair links are brand specific. Oregon,stihl and windsor chain parts...

    Soffit Mystery

    There were awnings there at one time and thats how they closed it up after removing them. There should be no insulation in the soffits. Should go just above outside walls. Im betting some or all the windows were changed, some larger ones installed.

It is a shame that recyling isnt what its made out to be. I used to be dilligent with what gets recycled, now, like everyone else, metals, glass and...

    Deionized water

    Chrysler reccomended de-mineralized water. That’s it. even distilled water is marginally better. Remember back when coolant was green? And a head gasket failure was rare? Typically back then the coolant changed itself when a water pump sprung a leak.

    Weird tire issue

    Broken belts. Not uncommon. Carlisle used to be good. Not any more. Usually thats from hitting something on highway or a nasty pothole. i have seen some pretty nasty looking tires in my garage years. Some i was nervous about just letting the air out.
