    So $13-ish bucks and 10 minutes install time and I've got a new throttle cable for my old 4 wheeler. Old one hung up, just crusty from age. New one works like a hot damn, and was super simple to swap. The beast hadn't been started in at least 6-7 months, and after a push or three on the primer knob and less than 5 pulls she came back to life. Dude I night it from days it always starts on the first pull. And other than this time since it had been sitting, he was right. I'll drain the gas and put in some fresh, air up the tires and she will be ready for woods duty.
    Got to come up with a pin or some such to connect the lawn trailer (kind that goes behind a mower) to it. Makes hauling deer out much easier.

    Wouldn't a really torquey straight 6 like the ford 300 c.i. or jeep 5.0 work better than those V8 they were using? Or is the weight of the bigger motor a more deciding factor?

    Yes. Not so much the pin, but I'm also looking at putting a hitch ball on it. Got to do some creative adapting to be able to use both.

    No. You don't need to get creative, at least not much. Make a receiver hitch, and two inserts, one for trailer ball, and one for pin type hitch. You can weld, and making a small receiver hitch for that thing shouldn't be all that hard. If it already has a hole for a hitch ball, then just make a plate steel piece with a hole in it for the pin and trailer ball bolt and put it between the ball and the nut that holds the ball on. It doesn't have to look cool; it just has to work!

    Your second option is likely what will happen. I did that for my uncles and it worked good. He wasn't pulling a yard trailer, but a spring harrow from a David Bradley contraption.

    All windows are covered - with the exception of one panel on one window that I'll have to cut from plywood (was one panel short with what I inherited with this house). Taking a break as there's a rain squall right now - BUT - I'd already be done except my lovely wife decided she needed a shower in the middle of this job, so she wasn't available for about 1/2 hour which pushed us up to where we are now.

    WOMEN!!!!!

    ETA: Last (wood) panel installed - and nap taken!

    It's been downright chilly on my side of the Smokies. Barely made it to 71° yesterday and today, and was in the 60s on Tue. and Wed. Supposed to get warmer next week.

    Bullet sizer done. Works. It's UGLY. Not sure how it happened, but I ended up cutting a double, or almost double thread. May have missed my mark when engaging the half nut. BTFOOM how it happened. Ended up chasing them again, filing, saying words that rhyme with rock chucking brother trucker. Ran a nut on it and straightened them out enough to fit the press. Ain't nothing to be proud of, but she chooches.
    But....my bullets are barely over .430 as cast. And.....they ain't round. I can see a mold line on them. Parallel to that line is the fat side. Just means the mold wasn't closed tight enough. It ain't much, but it doesn't size them all the way around as there ain't enough meat on them to make up for the lop sided bullets.
    No matter tonight, I've done got a screaming headache. And the women folk ain't helping. I'm afraid the wife has passed on her Oklahoma genes to my oldest. I was hoping she would be a happy medium between "go screw yourself " (me) and "ok. I'll do what lever I'm told because I can't think for myself or use common sense, even if this will cause me harm". (Wife)
    Good thing I'm on call, I've got some bottles with my name written ALL over them.

    My .44 mild had some schmoo in the bits and pieces that align the mold halves. And a ding or two on the surfaces. Side note, my BIL isn't ever allowed to borrow my molds ever again. And he didn't even use it!
    Anyway, knocked the burs off and cleaned up the surfaces and now it opens and closes like it should. Noticed it was a bit notchy and sticky when I used it. Should have checked it BEFORE I casted 100+ bullets. Oh well.
    Got some more baking currently, I may have not let them cook long enough last time as the powder coat wants to come off when I size them. Never had that issue with the others I've coated.

    If you're a Dodger's fan, I guess you went home disappointed. I'm a Rockies' fan, so I like the outcome just fine.

    Baseball is a fickle mistress. For about 2 months, the Dodgers couldn't lose. Now they're on an 8 game losing steak. I expect they'll still win the NL West, seeing as how they still have a double digit lead over their nearest rival. Still, it's good to go into the post-season with a head of steam.

    As for the Rockies, I think they have a better than fair chance of making the post-season, but don't really think they can advance very far. Their play is just too inconsistent.

    Oh, and Shush, over here a cricket is a little bug sort of like a grasshopper. Some consider them good luck. I tend to think more of them as fish bait.

    No, I was not thrilled with the outcome. But the game was always within reach, so it kept is interested in it. Think we had a 6 game losing streak before the current 8 game streak. But the game was fun and the seats were good. My wife an I took or son and DIL. Had a ginormous hot dog with tons of mustard, relish and onions.

    I've hooked many a German Brown with a live cricket on a barbless hook and an ultra-light rig. I'm a city boy, but I'm a city boy who's daddy took him on many fishing trips.

    If I had known that, I would have invited you to come out for a visit. But, I no longer live along the upper Arkansas, so it's a moot point.

    My H.S. metal shop teacher told us to "never build something you can buy". With that said, some times buying costs too much, or you can't get exactly what you want, blah, blah, blah.

    But if you're wanting to learn, huck this one, grab another hunk of metal, and try it again. If you've "had it", click the BIN button...
