  • For those who have and enjoy an RV of some sort; don't get me wrong... I'd LOVE to have one. For us it's simple econamics that makes it a bad choice. If we had the cash for these things I'd pull the trigger in a heartbeat.
  • Jeremiah said: How did you vent it? I've been debating it, thinking about going up through the ceiling then down to the soffit with a dryer vent. And which one did you get?…
  • Nice!
  • Little Steven said: Are the walls and roof insulated? Yep, the whole house including the attached garage is spray foamed walls and roof. It's a very tight envelope... so much so that fresh air has to be vented in to prevent sick hous…
  • I envy that. I hate the heat and humidity...yet here I am in South Louisiana. Why? Because I love my Cajun wife of nearly 25 years (this August) more than I hate the heat.
  • LOL... you think you love it up there in PA... here it's just MISERABLE without it.
  • I got a call from my Aunt all choked up and crying because I referenced her. As I've told her before; by instilling God's grace in me she has given me the capacity to understand and forgive, which is a gift I could never repay.
  • sew quik said: Made these as described, but with some additional spices in the saute mix. Turned out great! Gone in less than 5 minutes off the plate... Glad you enjoyed them. TUTTLE871 said: That is mushroom on mushroom crim…
  • I'm aware that many of you are probably growing weary of my public pity party. However, I believe that it's nearly over with this latest bit of inspiration. So... if you'd be so kind as to indulge me for just a bit longer we can wrap this up. As m…
  • hapster said: Good luck... hope you can make that happen. Side note - my wife's family has a hunting camp in Garland and we usually pass through Warren a few times heading to play golf. Cousin Jerry & my BIL Rick outside of the mental hos…
  • Hmmm... let's try again. I still have some work to do before it's running right as I have a float issue or something similar (gas ran out of the carb when the petcock was on without the motor running). Then I need to rejet these carbs to get …
  • Finally! Now I need to get the proper fittings for the new petcocks and I should be able to try starting it.
  • bud812 said: I like a guy that rebuilds carbs with a 16oz claw hammer near buy.  ) Had to tap that file into the hole somehow. 
  • Well... no video of the first start up tonight as I ended up having more work to do before I could even begin reassembling the carbs. ← link to YouTube video Add to that the fact that some of the parts from the parts kit didn't fit and needed to b…
  • Update on our injured family member; she's doing very well and is at home recuperating. Thanks again for the prayers and well wishes. Now I can focus once again upon my latest obsession... It's FINALLY time to reassemble these Mikuni MK2 Carbs an…
  • We just got the word that the MRIs show that the bleeding both internally and on the brain has stopped. As she had no other serious injuries they're considering discharging her. Thanks to all for the prayers and well wishes. :-bd
  • I finished the polishing of the caps and bowls today all while not feeling well and combined with the drama of my wife's side of the family dealing with rough times. The family had multiple destroyed homes due to the hurricanes that hit Mississippi …
  • Well... I had them all ready to go... all disassembled and rready to be soda blasted. But no place around here that dose soda blasting would take the job saying the parts are too small. So, I went and bought one of those Harbor Freight 15lb soda …
  • bud812 said: Have you tried a little heat on them? Maybe a heat gun.. I bought one of these today for just that purpose. I ended up not having time to work on it this evening though.
  • These carbs are old and obviously have never been serviced and they STILL cost me $200.  I've soaked them for DAYS in Marvel Mystery Oil and sprayed the Hell out of them with Blaster 16-PB Penetrating Catalyst and a host of other penetrating oil a…
  • I guess I shouldn't be surprised that these 35 year old Mikuni MK2 carburetors are fighting me every step of the way on getting them disassembled. I've soaked them overnight in Marvel Mystery Oil. I'm hoping that it will penetrate and loosen so I …
  • Thanks. I'm hoping that there will be no major issues with the motor other than the expected nasty carburetors. If that's the case I hope to have a video to post of the beast running sometime next week.
  • Thanks y'all. I'm just itching for some time in the saddle. This is taking a bit longer than I had anticipated... but every time I consider taking a shortcut or leaving something undone or unpolished I can hear my Dad saying; "don't do it at all if …
  • No pics because life has been hectic, but I finished off the leftovers last Thursday with a nice beef stroganov with LOTS of mushrooms... yum. Given the versatility of leftover options, I may be doing prime rib more often.
  • Thanks @cazzy. More than anything he needs to keep his hands up. One day he'll spar someone with more experience and he'll learn that lesson the hard way... LOL. GQuiz said: Song stuck in my head... Thanks )
