Default A Fairy tale Crab Build from Bubbas

I call this a fairy tale because it went just perfect !!!!! Usually dont felt pretty good today and worked on some past orders .
Crab build..
1- Core bags from Terrys secret stash..
2-should be complete ??? Not 100% but good , only had large timing tag instead of small one, he has a box of both
3-11A weights and spark ring , spray with lube
4-assemble the advance parts with new spacer and snap ring ( thanks third generation)
5 NAPA parts echlin heavy duty , soak point sin the marvel sauna and wipe clean ( helps the fiber blocks )
6-Lube back side of rubbing block to have lasting lube .
7-Use all new stainless socket head screws
8-Install shaft and breaker plate , using large snap ring
9-Use napa fa54 Condesnor ( have had good luck with these almost never failing)
10 lube and install spark brake piston , tighten to three turns
11- run on distributor machine , adjust each side of the points , run for 5-10 minutes at 2000 rpm and recheck for wear ???
12-confirm 11 degrees of spark advance
13 - Install the Bubba sticker ans ship to customer .......

A fairy tale day for sure .

Note , You guys didnt think i could actually quit doing this did ya !!!!

You should sell key rings with the Bubba Sticker on them.

Jim, as I said before, you will have good days and bad days while you are doing dialysis. I am now in my second second year of dialysis, and I still have the occasional bad day. I look at it this way, do it, or die. That pretty much sums it up. You don't have to like it, but you don't have much choice. I go 3 days a week from 5:15 AM until 9:30 AM. At least I have most of the day left to do what I want, or what I can. Just keep going. I am almost 80 years old, and have slowed down somewhat, but I do what I can. I am thankful for the technology that helps us.

Nick, I really like hearing from you . You can be my dialysis coach as some days I have trouble being positive .i will keep it going and staying on the diet restrictions help a ton.
