  1. ..Red Green would be proud! ..But I think I'll stick with bolts!
  2. ...I thinks I've got 1" 8 TPI to 1/2 straight bore figured out after a brief thinking period ...... ...Now if I takes this 1/2" bore 3" faceplate, and bolt it to this 1" 8 TPI 3" faceplate, and add a piece of 1/2" rod. ...Works for me. See Above ^ Present wife drama reducer.
  3. @John Morris, Thanks John... ... Now I needs to find adaptors that will go from either MT2 or 1" 8TPI to 1/2" straight bore.
  4. 7:30 AM 25° WC 12° forecast high of 33°, and windy. ..Thankfully the snow forecast came out like political promises...we got maybe 1/4"
  5. 7:45 AM 34° WC 23° 80% chance of "some kind of precipitation" with a "dusting to 3"" of whatever we get. .. Yesterdays forecast was calling for several inches of "wet heavy snow." It appears the N.E. winds have kept the major part of this storm front just South of the Ill., WI. state line. ..Hopefully it stays that way.
  6. ...Probably got the "Mash" name when someone mashed their fingers/thumb.
  7. Still moving rather slow, backs still giving me grief. So of course the weather forecast is calling for anywhere from 1-8+ inches of wet heavy SNLUSH! It all depends on which way the storm tracks.
  8. The Lowes by me has foam core plywood. The stuffs pretty weird, it's real flexible.
  9. You can tell I don't do much hunting. ...Well other than for rusty ARN. From the title I was expecting something like a duck call.
  10. ... Do like we do. Don't like one weather report switch the channel and watch another. Usually around here though none of them are correct, the only way to make sure is stick your head out the door.
  11. 10:35AM 44° headed towards 52° The SUN is shining Not looking forward to Tuesday/Wednesday forecast. Looks like we might get a few inches of SNLUSH.
  12. ...Talked to a ASE certified GM dealer mechanic I know. Told him the codes, and he said the following. "Check to see if the distributer shaft bushings may have went south. He stated they went to plastic bushings, and it's a common problem on the GM products, and when they go it's not uncommon for this to trigger several codes due to the misfire condition it creates."
  13. Why do you think I still manage to fix my own. The labor alone would be more than either one of ours is worth.
  14. ....Well now, got your moneys worth out of them plugs.
  15. @Woodbutcherbynight The EGR solenoid/valve was a bit sticky, so cleaned and reinstalled. There is what seems to be more than one cylinder misfiring. ...possible distributor cap. My back was totally killing me after getting the brakes on the Malibu fixed so not happening today. Codes only really tell you which sensor is reporting an error, not the root cause, but sometimes a failed sensor can really give you fits. DAMHIKT!!! Oh BTW, It's a 4.3 Vortec.
  16. ...I was wrong it's a 2004 Malibu. Had to replace pads, caliper, and brake hose. Midas did the brakes when they first got the car. For some reason they had three copper washers on the caliper end of the hose. Couldn't get it to reseal, so replaced the hose. The 2000 Blazers another story showing two codes with two more pending. First the showing codes. P0300 Multiple Cylinder Misfire Detected. P0420 Catalytic Efficiency Below Threshold Bank One And the pending codes P0101 MAF VAF A Ckt Rng Perform P0404 EGR Flow Ckt Rng Perform My brother just had the coil replaced earlier in the week. $200.00+ including tow. Oh well got one out of two done.
  17. It was a fun Friday. Went with neighbor to help clean the drain at their one home. Picture two guys one 61 the other 63 both with their backs out hauling a commercial size "Electric Eel" down and then back up a flight of stairs. ... …....Glad there was no film. On todays menu... Waiting for brother to show up so's I can "help" fix brakes on I think it's a 2005 Malibu At least one caliper. Then if "we" get that done take code reader to find out why his 2000 Blazer's "Check Engine" lights on, and it will only go 15 MPH. ........He just got it "back from the shop". ...
  18. ..I know that feeling well. I'm still trying to figure out where to put the three machines in my truck.
  19. Cal, that was the 1934 price for the No.551 bench with the wood. The leg sets themselves are normally going for $225.00-325.00 plus $75.00-110.00 for shipping a pair.
  20. Some prices are lower, some are low starting bid but usually end up around the $100.00 mark. On the motors you have to really watch the shipping prices. What might look to be a good Buy It Now price might not look so good when you add the shipping. Needless to say I was pleasantly surprised when my neighbor showed me the "lamp" he had found.
  21. Well uh if he's trying to give it back to you. ....What are you waiting for. ..
