|cozwurth||Matt, you must not have done something right if the red beejeebers came out that quick... If you can scare those little suckers enough that they hang back and think twice about showing their little faces, well, then you've done something. Split one of my knuckles open lengthwise with a grinder, through a leather glove a few years ago. Scared them things so bad it took about 5 minutes for the first one to poke its head out and make an appearance. In the mean time, I was getting an anatomy lesson. I don't recommend it though. Google searches and online pics hurt much less.|

Precious ran out of gas tonight on the way home from the club meeting. We were in Cleveland, Tn
I coasted down hill through two parking lots to a gas station and she rolled to a stop at the first pump. I put 16 gallons in her and borrowed a cup from another customer. Poured a table spoon of gas in the carburetor and she happily came back to life.
If you have to run out of gas, that is the way to do it!

Dadgum, you are busy busy, Dave.
Thanks for reminding me I need tire plugs, and to change GTP oil because with all the battery unhook and reconnects, oil life monitor tells me nothing and it has been at least six months.
And thanks to Mitch for reminding me to, hello, go peek at the crankcase dipstick every so often. Now that my debutante trans is hot to trot, the oil is probably coffee. And only half a cup.
Had some nice cake and ice cream after a meal with my oldest, dearest friends (my folks) today. Shop-sweated all day, did that, hoped to make it home before dark to take Grape out. I promised her and me. Ain't drove her this week but thats how I am uncorking the 4 day weekend (thanks, way cool boss ), dark or not.
Well, its good and dark now. But, Me and Swee' P chased a sho-nuf double rainbow home. Neato! But I'm getting my V8 time in before I update my thread and junk.
Speedo lights were out on the '69GP last dark jaunt. Meh. Tach lite good but after 20 years in it, I do OK by ear.
Sparing you images to all that, to lighten your burden with this little life day thing...
Early yesterday, working barehanded where I shouldn't, I sliced the bejeepers out of my left index finger. Off to the in side of the nail. Nail stopped it. You know its deep when the red bejeepers come out of it.
Well, long about mid afternoon I was on my second dressing of the day on the wound. I keep tape, no-stick pad, goo, and scissors on hand because packaged bandages so often fall short and the right kind is never around. Couple-three layers to get a good do on a fingertip cut, y'know. Aaanyhow...
So I got my cowhide gloves on, ready for ridin, ropin, and ruckus-raisins but only just welding with 'em on... Felt a warm spot, shook glove, continue. When unglove-ing, there were two eyeballs staring up at me. So I put on a smile and thought "This must be my day!"
Right ON the cut. One less layer and I'd have gotten free cauterizing. Thats something like free undercoating at a car dealer.
Ok, better quit. Hillbilly rambling and all.
Lets have a safe but fun-every-chance-you-get kind of Independence Day weekend. Grape and I are off to go night prowling for a little while now, since we got a kind jump on the increased weekend traffic. She likes to go through firefly valley on nights like this to see if she can catch one that glows on the windshield for a couple minutes. Yes, she is sinister but she's a model (J) and built as gothy as they come.

Tire fixed. Rusty nail in the tread, so it was an easy fix. Got the brakes done on mom's Terrain. Forgot that the oil needed changing too... I'll get that stuff when I get the oil and filter for the Camaro.

Busy morning... I changed the plugs in the Civic. They're a breeze to change since they're right up top in the open. I had a touch over 100k on the Autolite Iridium in it, and replaced them with NGK iridiums, so should be good for another 100k. I picked up a cast iron pan at the thrift store the other day, so I sprayed it down good with oven cleaner and it's baking in a black plastic bag now. Should be able to clean it this evening. Finally swapped out the starter on the mower. That's due for an oil change, but it will wait until after this round of mowing. Next up is a tire repair on the truck, and brake pads and rotors on mom's Terrain. ...and it's not even lunch time yet... I must be sick or something, lol!

What kind of dryer are you looking at building?
Are you considering putting the dryer BETWEEN the compressor and the tank (keeps water out of the tank)
I have seen some made out of copper line that helps take the moisture out of the air before the tank, and has a drain line in the dryer.
I have also seen the refrigerated type, the dessicant absorber types and the copper coil in a tub of water type.

I finally installed my automatic air line reel today,(after about a year ago when i purchaced it ) it was a little harder than i expected ut is heavy,,finally took a rachet strap to hold it in place while i bolted it to the frame..
note the one picture where i am holding the Gear Wrench,,i tightned the u bolt and the shanks were long and my wrenck would not come off,,( i probably are the only one to do this,
Well i got every thing mounted and tight,,YEP it was upside down,,turned it over and quit for tonight ,,will install hoses and hard lines tomorrow,

What is the length of hose on your air reel? I am shopping for one right now and am curious? Is that a Horrible Fright HF reel?
I spent the day moving the compressor to its new location in the shop and then I built a shelf to set my air drier on. I like to keep as much of my stuff up off the floor to ease cleaning.
I need to do maintenance on my air drier as the condenser is just filthy with dust dirt and cobwebs.. When I get the equipment secure and wired I will start the plumbing for the air lines BTW what are you using for air line? My last system used copper and I am looking to be frugal but safe with this one...
