I "Missed" the after supper shift. Well. Tomorrow is another day.

I read the Jesus learned obedience through His suffering! I must be a slow learner. I hope this one is graded on a curve...Chap

I'm amazed at some of the projects done on the Barn, I'm at the stage I go into the garage look around, don't know where to start. I usually check oil/water in daily driver and go back to house.

I thought I was the only one! Thanks for sharing, I feel better.

I have a moving blanket from Harbor Freight that I spread on the floor, sometimes folded in half for extra comfort. Works well for knee padding also.

I also have an old towel I put all the tools I think I will need and sometimes the contents of a small tool box on. I wiggle under then pull the towel and tools under. When I use a tool or take something apart I then lay it on the towel. When I am finished or wiggle out to work on some parts, I pull the towel, tools and parts out with one pull after I am out from under. Sometimes things still roll or fly away though.

I tucked one of Bubba’s condensers inside an original condenser housing after experiencing engine shutdown at road speed on my 36. I Pulled the coil, fan belt and fan in the process. Put it all back together and dropped one of the fan bolts somewhere. I looked for some time for the missing culprit and couldn’t find it. Finally just decided to take a nap and look for it at a later time. Good decision! I don’t want to start the engine until I locate the bolt and washer. Lots of fun getting my big hands in really tiny places!

Update: Just Damn. I didn't realize I had gotten that weak.


I finally got the distributor, complete with new condenser mounted back on the truck, in the proper position, and couldn't push the clips back on to hold the cap on. Had to wait till yesterday for my son to set the clips.


Now, I wonder if I'll be able to push the plug wires back into the cap ?? LOL


I ain't giving up yet guys and gals.
