    Meet Mr Rusty

    96 F. and very humid here. Staying inside. When I was in engine room on ship in 'nam and the other ****holes in SE Asia, we used to put Kaki's in sink and soak with water. Feels a little strange, but the wet Kaki's would cool you as they dried in the high temps. If I HAD to work outside in...

    Meet Mr Rusty

    HMM- Knob & tube is 2 wire, no ground. Good stuff in it's day. Trouble with it is fabric over rubber covering deteriorates over many decades, sometimes leaving wires bare. GFCI should shut off juice before most people can feel it. I have GFCI outlets, but they now say outlets should be...

    Meet Mr Rusty

    Next time you may not be so lucky! Your shop outlet needs a GFCI or the circuit breaker changed to a AFCI/GFCI Getting shocked under a truck, where you cannot readily get clear is a good way to get fatal fibrillation. I enjoy reading your posts. Go spend $5.00 and buy a good GFCI outlet...

    Meet Mr Rusty

    I am amazed that you are doing all this while laying on your back on a piece of cardboard on a gravel driveway. Until you told us, I thought you had a lift at work that you were using after hours. You must be a young guy. No go for someone my age (76).

    Well, are you going to tell the rest of the story-- or keep us in the dark? Whatever busted the rear like that had to be a good one.

    Gauge repair question

    Gauge repair shops use what looks like a mini bearing puller. The point goes on the shaft, and 2 jaws grab on either side of needle. I have used 2 flat head screwdrivers with some success. Go slow, and keep pressure even. Very easy to bend shaft. I put moderate pressure on screwdrivers and if...

    I had same thing happen on trans cooler line in 10 year old Ford truck. I regularly inspect the bottom of my vehicles, but the plastic clamp was trapping road salt water, and corrosion was not visible. Fortunately, I was driving in town, and spotted/ smelled the oil before damage was done. Cost...
