    What if ya man up and ditch the phone? #amishlife
  2. The virus

    So how's it affecting you? KY seems to be slowly restricting workers. Our walk in work has slowed down, but my scheduled work is still there and I just wash my hands an extra couple times per car. So far, so good.
  3. Disney's Auto Shop Top Tips

    ^ Yes. I was very surprised to see how well it cut oil based disasters. I use it very liberally. I think a 32 oz bottle does about as much work as 3 or 4 12 oz carb cleaners*, and does it without the FUMES. This is a "shop supply" to me, and the boss and I figured we're saving money with the water based cleaner. *Use only as directed. Your results may vary. Not for sale in Kommifornia.

  4. Disney's Auto Shop Top Tips

    I've added a detergent to my shop cart. Spray 9 has now replaced most of my use of aerosol "carb cleaner" for oil/grease removal.

    95 mph on a warm humid day is nice. (Stupid nice.) (Freakin' drag car nice.) lol
  6. The virus

    About what age and general health condition were they? My neighbor is OK now, she's close to 70 years old.
  7. LSx Nova Build

    Cody, I bet that lean condition did create a blowtorch in that hole. I've heard of melted plug straps, holes in pistons, burnt exhaust valves, rings that swell and butt together so hard that it pops a portion of the top of the piston off, and pistons that swell and scuff/gal the cylinder wall. But I've never heard of all that being OK while heat was able to crack the block. I don't see heat being the cause of those cracks. *And I don't claim to know everything about racin', especially the LS engines. I'm williin' to learn.

    I'd mark Paris Landing off the list...
  9. LSx Nova Build

    I wonder what the bottom of the cylinder/block looks like.
  10. Fishing

    My yearly bump for Free KY fishing. WhereyaatTino? And snapping turtle is what my son's got on the menu soon. He'll kill and knife anything. I told him to fry it on a back burner with the exhaust fan on high. lol
  11. The virus

    This vid was offered to me and I chuckled. My coworker has a young in-law who tested positive for the covid antibodies. Said person was last sick around Christmas. So, could have had it with no symptoms, or this stuff has been in W KY since December.

    Not a problem, didn't PT Barnum say there was a sucker born every minute? lol
  13. Nashville Riots

    Pride, Satan, don't know, division and distraction from the correct priorities (loving God, loving others). Nation will rise against nation....the Greek is Ethnos. Ethnic group will rise against ethnic group. And I'm not running around with a REPENT! sign on my back (yet ), but when I read words written 2000 years ago then look around at this world (both the people and "nature"), I think . (Have ya'll noticed how many earthquakes the W TN area has had this spring??)
  14. Random thought thread

    Deep thoughts: Why will Youtube show me hundreds of videos of people being killed, but put a restriction on the vid showing how to shoot a cow in the forehead with a 22lr and the butchering that follows?? Edit: Why is the vid not restricted when linked here??

    Are you looking at house first, job second?
  16. LSx Nova Build

    Leaned cylinders caused cracks between cylinder and block? But no piston damage? I've not heard of that yet....
  17. Any gardeners?

    You know: Dirt, seeds, sweat, weeds, sweat, sunburn, ear of corn? Anybody?
  18. Any gardeners?

    We've had rain so often that only yesterday did I get some planting done. The wife went to the store for seeds/transplants...I mentioned that some "purple" variety was supposed to be good. She got one Cherokee to try.
  19. Random thought thread

    I'm glad Youtube has many of his words recorded. He was good at “helping the thinker believe and the believer think.”

    With the LS being superior, it's difficult to find a good answer. How about it doesn't have a cheap rubber O-ring sealing the oil pickup tube? Why do LS engines starve for oil pressure when an oil filter is neglected, is the bypass on a SBC better than no bypass on an LS? I agree that the LS is better from a modern standpoint. But no joke, I'd rather have an engine that's controlled mechanically if I wanted to depend on it for survival. New stuff is too computerized....I found a "Human Vehicle Interface Module" on a chevy truck the other day. I had/have no idea what that's for. And Mike, you forgot the SBC is better for powering a horse drawn hay cutter on my Amish farm.
  21. Ragland Boys Race and Repair Shop Truck

    What "LS" is left on the truck? If all LS is gone, you probably should look for a wrecked LS truck/car to sway engine/trans/harness/computer all in one package. Disney cracks me up that an LS is better "in every single way". Wait till the EMP and try to get that LS to run. I'll be makin' a killin' selling my stash of points distributors for small blocks

    Whaaa?? NOVA is JILTED!
  23. Any gardeners?

    Smokin'! lol A western KY classified section containing some Kubotas
  24. Any gardeners?

    Priorities, I get it. What kinda tractor/implements are you wanting?
  25. Any gardeners?

    Hey, it's 2020 and COVID threatens to kill us all, so who's gardening like their life depends on it?? lol I hope nobody, but largely because of the food supply issues of late, and to teach the kids how it's done, we're attempting a large garden this year. I've hauled lots of compost to liven up the soil. We hope to have lots of corn, beans, and tomatoes to can/freeze. Maybe some sunflowers and pumpkins will keep the kids interested. Now if the weather will get much warmer and drier.
