Running right along.
Steph had an interview and was gone when I woke up. SO I went back to sleep. I have not been sleeping well lately.
I wasn't asleep long, but it was nice. I got up and got going.
I had a load of scrap already hooked up to the JollyGreenGiant so I headed out. Before I could get to the truck, Tim called and asked if I needed the dump trailer tomorrow. I told him I could live without it. He asked if I could drop it off where he was working so he didn't have to make two trips. I said I could.
I got to the yard and had to wait for a guy to unload. He had 4 huge I beams in his trailer. He worked and worked and worked to get one all the way off. It took him 15 minutes. Then he started on the second one. I got out of the truck and asked why he didn't partially drag them off then pull the trailer out from under them. He looked at me like I had just cured cancer. He was unloaded in 5 minutes.
I got unstrapped and backed up next to his I beams and was unloaded in about a minute.
I left there and went to the gas station to get a drink, I was about to turn to dust, and the scrap yard machine was empty.
Then I went to Harbor Freight. I needed a stepped drill bit. I got that and some safety wire. I used all mine up repairing the rabbit cage.
Then I headed up to Kings Mountain to drop the trailer. The guy he is working for is an old friend. I talked to him a bit then headed home.
I only came in long enough to tell Steph we needed to work on the string mower.
She came out and we got it up on the stand. It had me stumped. It was getting no spark. And appeared to be getting no fuel. No matter what I tried it would not start.
I thought the coil might be bad so I told Steph to get an engine we have been cannibalizing, and I went in the shop to look up the air gap.
I looked up the model number on Google to see what engine it had because we couldn't find the numbers on the engine (more on that in a minute). The first thing I found was this.
I walked outside and checked mine and sure enough the cable is broken.
We started putting the tins back on, I found the model number, DUUUH. It was on the engine cover.
While we were finishing that up, MawMaw Wander came over. She talked for a minute, then left with Heath to go home. LOL. He loves MawMaw.
We finished up the string mower, I ordered a new cable, then we got the next victim....ummm.... patient up on the stand.
After picking up tools, we grabbed the wagon with the batteries in it and headed over to MawMaw's.
He mom was in her 90's when they bought her the Jazzy wheelchair, she was scared of it and never used it. the only time it has been used was to take it from the closed in back porch to the closed in side porch.
We got it reassembled and got it ready to sell.
Then we made a video of it so I can get it listed.
Heath came home with us, but he wasn't happy about it.
I got in the shower, then filled the tub for Heath when I got out.
Leftover spaghetti was dinner.
