  1. I was going to point out you should put that in the “Corona Virus News” Thread, instead of the “Farce” thread, but then I realized it was a New York Times.
  2. Pleased we’re seeing a drop in Covid 19 positives up here since King Ever’s mask mandate. Last week only 1 of 10 engine oil samples came back Covid positive. The week before it was 4 positive, even though the machines aren’t showing a single symptom.
  3. Maybe don’t be as cautious about NAPA, but definitely WIX filters. You can get WIX everywhere.
  4. I finally gave the machining curl filter pictured to our runner to exchange. He took it to NAPA. The parts guy asked “why didn’t you just pull the curl out and use it”. 🤦‍♂️— Really kid?
  5. Find out where that plastic you found in the primer pump is coming from. Had the personal experience of finding a bread bag in a guy’s tank. If it’s a clear bread bag it’s absolutely invisible when submerged in the fuel. Also, you need to crack injector lines while pumping the primer to move air out properly. The EUP has an open center that will allow fuel flow with the key off. On the older EUP you want to crack the line at the EUP, not in the head.
  6. Plain brilliant!!! I didn’t think the reverse fur stroke maneuver would work? I just learned something.
  7. I was thinking you should be committed to a padded room for selling a perfectly nice Mack, then I scoped the interior........
  8. Yup, sick.....Getting sick of seeing politicians and the media exploiting people’s fears and insecurities. Biden-“people need to wear masks OUTSIDE (and inside) for the next three months”. Gimme a break!!! I’m not mad at Biden, he said that because his peeps saw it as politically strategic. It’s what people(majority) WANT to hear or he wouldn’t have said it. I don’t miss the opportunity to ask people what they’re hearing & seeing. That’s real. So I met this guy in Missouri. I’m buying a vehicle from him. I asked him questions and spent the afternoon talking. Topic shifts to Covid. He said he has a neighbor who passed away weeks ago. She was elderly. She was under the care of the church and his pastor. A widow. She had a stroke.....sudden, hard, fatal, stroke. They witnessed it and her and death. No symptoms/sickness before it happened. His pastor (and power of attorney for her) received the death certificate cause of death as “Covid 19”.
  9. Had a hum dinger down in Illinois. This is not made up....... Was cruising out in Illinois farm country. I always pop the windows and kill the A/C and grab a left arm tan. When I was a kid we had family farms in Wi like they still do in the midsection of Illinois. Smell of pigs and corn all the way! Just like going home. Driving through the middle of nowhere south of Rockford and a Rav 4 pulls up, left lane. Lady is waving her hand at me like an emergency. We’re doing 74.99 MPH mind you. She’s yelling something I can’t hear and pointing like my cars on fire and so I’m confused as hell and shake my head “no” and shrugging my shoulders 🤷🏿‍♂️. She lets off the gas, falls back, runs forward and starts yelling again and pointing at my car. I look at her face to read her lips and she only has one more tooth than a chicken. Her nose is touching her chin and it’s like trying to read lips with a carp? Total fail. Finally I figured out what she was doing. She’s yelling at me something about ”Covid” and “Go Back To Wisconsin!!!!”. It was another complete Covidiot sighting. Not just a drink, she had the whole Koolaid pitcher. Lolo 😆 When I first nodded “NO” and shrugged she let off the gas to make sure I had a Wisconsin plate and she wasn’t mistaken so the second time she came up she was REALLY mad and animated. I was the only poor sucker with his window open so she had to get her hyper-Democrat on. Because i’m a law abiding citizen, or as we refer to them now days, “Sucker”, I kept Betty Lou cased, unloaded and in the trunk to comply with Illinois non-reciprocity lib law. I may however start carrying a realistic plastic pistol up front for Illinois. Something to scare the highway Covid hags away. Grab it, pretend to rack it, throw my head back and start laughing maniacally.
  10. Is your low pressure light working? Most of the time it's from guys kicking the wires off the air PSI sensor manifold down by your feet and then later putting them back on the wrong sensors.
  11. Bigger turbo may not reduce your EGT, more oxygen doesn't make your acetylene torch burn cooler. It'll change the DeltaP and create lower manifold pressure which drops you a bit. Consider EGR.....It lowers the burn temp, EGT and NOx by oxygen deprivation. Midsize Cat engine like 3126 transition to steel pistons and a wastegate at 230HP and above for same reason, more power = more heat. You need to create exhaust backpressure to create intake pressure, higher pressure is higher heat, more molecules dancing too close together.
  12. If you run high EGT with that little on your plate you may opening holes with a legitimate load.
  13. If you have it, try it. The high boost and fuel delivery may be keep your EGT high. Lot of pre-VGT modern engines ran wastegates to lower boost and assist controlling temp. It’s a balancing act.
  14. I’d like to know what he did in the last 48 hours before he finally hit critical mass on hatred. Maybe feasting on a media medley of reasons to hate white people, police and a side order of victim indoctrination? Or just plain bat@&$& crazy?
  15. A whole new brand of ridiculous government over reach here in the land of Youbetcha. Something straight from the pinko mind of King Evers. All State DNR members must wear a mask while talking on Zoom. Even if completely isolated. Why, no reason, serves no purpose. When it was revealed Evers shuffled a bit and said “it’s for solidarity”............ and the fine Madison sheeple of the south nod in agreement forgetting that NO ONE ACTUALLY WATCHES THIER PRIVATE ZOOM MEETINGS TO SEE THE “SOLIDARITY MOVE”. It has to all be a Lib-nightmare, but I can’t seem to wake!
  16. Nope. I was going to shortcut the episode from Dailymotion. It wouldn’t let me. Nice looking setup. Google it and watch it. Hilarious..... George finally gets accepted as a volunteer fireman after screwing up multiple other volunteer efforts throughout town. The town hadn’t actually had a fire since the 70’s so they leave George alone to man the firehouse phone. He’s goofing off in the truck and drops the keys to the Mack down the floor grate on which it’s parked. Fire 🔥 calls in, Bob, George and Kurt go to it in Bobs car. Grease fire. They have nothing to fight it with. George sacrifices himself by jumping onto the burning pan with his PPE on to smother it with his body. Wins the praise of the people.
  17. From what I’m seeing they want Kung Fu Flu to be third in 2020.....so they’re ramping up the false positives. 🐑 🐑 🐑
  18. US third comes in as "unintentional Injury", but it covers everything manslaughter related.
  19. Watched it last night. Anybody ever lay claim to owning the Mack Firetruck used on the sitcom Newhart?
  20. It does begin to spin out when a thread goes long. I’m bringing it back to this confused guy who fits the thread title..... Snapped a couple weeks ago. Seemed like a peaceable, friendly, kid. Assumption is he may have been scrambled by the loss of a loved one? But this pic is one I took as I pulled out of Mayo Clinic of Rochester? Voted best hospital in North America! He needs to move to the outskirts of medical competency like in the far north where you pray you never get seriously injured beyond stitches. Keep in mind this was was taken during the middle of a work-week day.
  21. No need for tin hats anymore. Aliens 👽 don’t need to read our minds since Corona stripped us of all accredited intelligence.
  22. All that sniffing he has to have contracted it by now? Gotta admit.... not going to be popular for saying it.... I’m starting to warm up to Biden a bit. He makes me 😂 laugh to tears and I like it. Funny bone love affair. The ridiculous stuff he says is hilarious. His reactions and bizarre mannerisms. Sniffing people like they’re scratch stickers. Corn puff story is awesome. You catch last weeks spoof? He was trying to yell, “hey man I don’t need a mental competency examine my ....... AND THE WHOLE THING WENT STAMMER! He couldn’t finish the sentence defending his mental/physical ability. I keep thinking “this isn’t real, this can’t be real, that has to be a staged joke reaction to make a little self-deprecating humor?”.......... but it’s not!
