Well Team Green you made ask myself what I really have to complain about. I have nothing compared to the situation you are in.

 

 

I hope everything turns out okay with the brain growth. I hope and wish you the best!

 

 

It's all perspective Sears.. I have nothing to complain about compared to Dale.. 

 

Dale.. I hope and pray you pull outta this..  May the big guys hand guide you well into the future..

I just left a message on that post. My heart goes out to Cheryl. I think we all really need to step back and think sometimes that 'it could be a lot worse'.

I think we all let life get the best of us. Life wasn't bad today and It was actually a blessing!

 

I am thankful I had the day I did. It could majorly be worse.

 

Thanks dstaggs and Gerald.

Dale needs and deserves all our prayers and thoughts..  That good man has lots to live for.. Focus should be on him. When chatting with him in the chat room it was like chatting with a long time friend.. It did help we both suck at typing in chat room..  Dale.. We are pulling for ya..

I had to go get the parts to fix my first post mistakes.

 

 

I drove about an 1 hour (one way) to get a part for my Onan (Cummins) engine. I drove all the way down there to pick up 2 parts I needed and headed back home.

 

The first thing I had to replace was the camshaft oil seal. Well cut a long story short I destroyed the seal I just drove 2 hours to get. I have a buddy at a local lawnmower shop so I drove to see if he knew any equivalents I could buy. He looked thru his inventory and couldn't find anything. He called Napa and Oreillys to see if they could find anything but they couldn't cross reference the part number. At this point I was thinking that I was going to drive another 2 hours to pick up a 5 dollar part.

 

Not wanting to drive another 2 hours I went to Oreillys myself and gave them a part number. The guy starred at the computer screen, it seemed for 20 minutes, and told me they didn't have any BUT the store the next town over had 2. I went over to Mocksville and bought BOTH seals for 8.99 a piece. At this point I was just elated that I had the parts in my hand and I could see this mower run again today.

 

Every time I was so aggravated over this situation I thought about this post. I got aggravated but I never got mad. I counted my blessings and kept a smile on my face.

I worked on this machine for 2 weeks and finally got it done. I like to get stuff down usually the day I break it down but I had to drag my feet on this project. It just bugs the crap out of me to not be able to get something done.

 

 

This engine is the quietest engine I have ever heard. Even at full throttle it barely sounds like it's running.
