Default Turbo encabulator(might not be a ford product)

Not sure if this link will work, but I saw on the national news this morning that Jan 20th has been listed as the most depressing day on the calendar. This made me smile after work today....

I think it would be difficult to get through all of that and keep a straight face!

That link works as good as the sinusoidal dingle arm mentioned in the video. Great discussion, I am sure there are a few components mentioned that can be applied to our Fords:-)

If you think that's tough, take a gander at "The Copper Clapper Caper" with Jack Webb and Johnny Carson sometime.

I want one of those! Do they make a horizontal- cranial (flat-head) adapter?

This was first published in an engineering journal in England 1944.

Thanks GB, I saw this a few years back. After sharing it with a few friends, I lost track of it. Lately, however, I could not find it. Kool. (probably a former compooter) Great to have again!

Sparky79 Reading about the Turbo Encabulator told me that it was one of the first times that they tried using an ear plug speaker, to prompt the oration.

Since Encabulator does not kick on spellcheck, decided to see the real source. Turns out be registered as truly a joke, an official spoof.

GB, you should apply for a federal grant to get one of these. You have many Ford trucks of historical importance. Surely, the encabulator would help reduce the hypoquaderteric gas emitted by sap & leokonetic moisture emissions from sawdust found on the property. This outgassing & emission is detramental to flathead valve trains & and electric trains you may have on the property.

Damn engineers, wait I'm an engineer. Makes me think of this classic Dilbert cartoon.

But I tried to keep the sawdust hidden under a pile of old engine blocks.....
