Ok!!! Sounds like a plan! I'll be waiting! :laughingteeth:


I think that there is a problem with my plan, how do I mail the engine oil without getting the envelope all soggy?

I think there is something else soggy besides the oil. ( your brain) :bigrofl:

LOL!!!! I even crack myself up sometimes. :laughingteeth:

I do wish I lived just a little closer! Than I could help you out when you need it.

I know that everybody here has made one of those stupid little mistakes that make you think it's a big problem. Well, I did that with the compressor... spark plug wire was not on all the way! LOL! What I thought was it going on, was the rubber part clipping over the white part of the plug. Push it harder and THEN it goes on. Lol. It fired up without hesitation, a little black smoke at first but it went away after a few seconds. It took less then five minutes for the 35 gallon tank to go from nothing to 180 psi. After the pump kicked off it ran very quite, and very smooth. The closest thing that was pneumatic was a 1" air gun, I hooked it up and it worked fantastic! I didn't take any lug nuts off anything but spinning in my hand felt the same as it does with the other compressor that has the big hose on it.

Ryan, glad you got it started! We have all done the same thing at some point. That looks great all hooked up and ready for business. Great job to all who helped you with this!

Thanks everybody! Normally I try to avoid using air tools so I wouldn't have to deal with the compressor in the truck. Now I can't wait to use it!

Kenny, the only people who helped are the great folks here who gave me their great advice! Everything else I did on my own, except the painting...

Just an update, I used the compressor yesterday to change the tires on my 312-8. It didn't have any problems and everything worked great!

I am not sure exactly. I hope to restore my speedex while im on summer break but I don't know when I will start or if I will have any little projects before then, I most likely will.

I think we need a video of this one in action before he's allowed to go onto the next one...

Gotta be a flat tire around somewhere.

Oh, you want a video now? Lol. I don't have anything that needs to be changed right now but once I get the ate tires ready to be changed on the wheel horse I will get a video of that.
  • MH81 said thank you
