It may not be over yet, but he'd likely get some of my own cow poo from the cow lot if he does!:rofl2: Fred is a great sport & he'll give it right back to me when the time is right. :smilewink:

Yeah, I could use a few yards myself...well-rotted, please. Just drop it off out back. :laughingteeth:

Oldcowhand: You should actually market that all natural fertilizer you have. Done properly, you can make a profit just by pointing to the pile you want gone next.:rocker2:

Well what should have been a quick job turned out to be a mess :wtf:
Changes the fuel filter tonight and knew I might get some air in the system but I really pissed her off :bash:
She ran off one cylinder for about 15 minutes and about shook herself to death then finally smoothed out. FUEL LEAK!! Longest I have run her sense I bought her and found out she leaks fuel pretty bad. Oh well :sensored:

You warned him about all the holes in the engineering & design... not the ones in the fuel system.

Don't feel bad Meangreen, I managed to wash off the top of my right shoe tonight with a gas leak that I didn't know was happening until after I smelled it.

Stopped by JD to make sure I could get a replacement plug before I got mean with the one that's stuck. The top broke right off but it came out :p

Glad to see you're getting her all lined out Fred. I would have driven the diesel JB up tonight, but kinda cold!

You could always run it with no muffler and move in the middle of nowhere. Or invest in earplugs in bulk (for the neighbors) Or (better idea) you could do a custom one.
