I finally had to have some fresh air. I went outside for about 10 minutes and felt like a new person. I wonder if I can rig up an outside air hose so I can have fresh air without standing int eh 20 degree weather

My Father n law liked fresh air also so he ran a dryer hose from outside to the intake of his furnace fan, seemed to work pretty good.


Hummmm that's a good idea.

Can't beat the price for sure!  I may drill through mine so I can slip a pin through to form a T-handle.  Turning with a ratchet one might put too much side load and break the tap.  I like using a T handle as you can put a good centered turn on it.

I hope those tap holders hold up for you guys. I had a similar set years ago and they didn't seem to hold up. I bought mine off one of the tool trucks and I'm sure I gave more than 21.00 for them. I was so impressed with the Lisle sockets I bought a second set for the house so I didn't have to keep hauling them back and forth. They weren't ever where you needed them.

Heath started out early cooking breakfast in the stove. Lazana with whip creme. Then off to see a guy about something green. Was stuck in traffic most of the way home and Christen decided to over heat again. Finally got home and the chicken had decided to leave the pen and go for a walk. I looked at the trailer and noticed I had tossed the small spreader cart in to hard and busted the hood on the G100, dang that will cost a bunch to fix. On closer inspection, the PO has given me an idea for a less costly fix. Not sure what is in the bird cages, but it might get Old Smokey running again. And as I don't have enough varments to chase around and re-pin here are a few more. At least I don't have Cat's "yet". And finally finished the (cake?) description failes me, but I am sure Heath loved it!
Happy Birth Day Heath!

Ok Going ot try again. I cleaned everything off the computer last night and maybe it will cooperate. 
 
 
 
 
This posting brought to you by Makers Mark! Eradicating pain since ohhhhh 330 or so.
 
 
 
To summerize the past Friday and Saturday quickly. I woked on Stephs truck. Got the transfer case wrestled in and then found out that the gasket was missing. I called her and she said the gasket was in Christines toolbox. Dangit. 
 
 
Daturday I went up to Hickory to get a John Deere G100. Grabbed a seeder as well. Came home and the rooster followed me around the yard. Found the rats perched on the frame of Spooky so they wouldn't be in side for the birthday party. Party was a failure.  Only Graham and Jenni came. Everyone else had plans 4 of which were birthday partys. Never knew Feb 20 was such a popular day to be born. Heat got a Chuggington Train set from an out of state friend. Nothing else mattered. 
 
 
This morning we got up and staggered outside. I was going to have that truck running come hell or high water.

After getting the transfer case wrestled loose and getting the gasket in and then reattaching everything we got all the other stuff installed. 
 
I had to change the O-ring in the remote oil filter adapter. Stephs arms were not long enough and mine were too big. So I created a new tool.
 
IMG_20160221_154204699.jpg IMG_20160221_154201083.jpg
 
 
By 300 I was hurting so bad I could barely move. I came in and took a good pull at my bottle and then went back out. It was just enough to kill the pain but not cloud the judgement - well - not more than usual. 
 
When I came back outside one of the neighbors, Scott hade come over to talk. Steph was wrestling with the passengers side exhaust flange. It did not want to go back. I had to put a ratchet strap to the y pipe and then use a jack to push it up. When we took the trans out it slipped off the jack and I think it straightened the pipe out a bit. After it heats and cools and few times you will never be able to tell. 
 
At 700 we finally had fluid in it and backed it off the trailer. After some time we had the fluid level right and I took it for a test drive. First I went a half mile and came back. Everything looked good. Then 3 miles. Still good. Although it didn't seem to have first gear. Not sure why. To took it about 6 miles and brought it back. It is leaking at a union on the cooling lines. It was too hot to touch. We called it a night. 
 
Tomorrow Steph has jury duty, I have a doctors appointment, Heath just has to tag along. I will get the leak stopped tomorrow when I get done. 
 
We came in and Heath and I degreased in the shower then Steph got her turn. I ordered Pizza. I am tired and sore and ready to eat something.l
