    If you were God

    If you were God,, what 2 things in life would you get rid of? For me , it would be yellow jackets and spiders. I've been stung more by that one species than all others put together. I don't mind the spiders as much as I do their webs. Just irritating to walk into a big web and not know if it...

    regeneration danger

    Just finished reading some info on the ford 6.4 power stroke and regeneration. Seems the regen adds extra fuel on the last part of the piston down stroke to get more fire into the exhaust to burn out the soot. This has a tendency to leave more fuel on the cylinder walls which eventually gets...

    Rear ballast for bx

    Most of the ballast systems I've seen are too large for the bx. It is very low to the ground. This is a gas water heater.
