Blazing fast new computer

Software companies need to understand that older users like me need a KISS system. I don't need all the bells and whistles, "jewels", etc. As a user, Windows 8 was a joke to me and the "new" 8.1 isn't much of an improvement. I think these upgrades and improvements are only done to justify someone ex...

Under 8 months to FULL retirement. At least, that's the plan

Redbug, I know what you mean. I worked for 35 years, most of it as an outside technician for Ma Bell. I can't imagine doing that type of work again but then again I was much younger and dumber at the time!

Under 8 months to FULL retirement. At least, that's the plan

Here's an update as of today: I have this part-time gig (8-12 hours a week) that pays really well. The work is easy, BUT, I still have to show up 2 or 3 days a week for it. I have a federal pension from doing 32 years with the government. The spouse and I BOTH collect Social Security. So, What to d...

New Handheld VHF Radio

IMO, you get what you pay for. I've had that brand products before and the quality matched the price.

I now have Cobra hand held units, which are still on the lower price end, but seem to hold up much better.

Hope things work out for you.

I had a basset hound once before too. She was a great family dog and required surgery for a hernia but money was no object for a family member. I was truly amazed at how fast she could run. I dubbed her the land torpedo!

New Toy 1986 Jeep Wagoneer XJ 2.8

Maybe check for any vacuum leaks? Can you slowly increase throttle without it stalling? Even tiny leaks will cause big problems. Good luck.

NAME 5 NEED TO KNOW PEARLS OF WISDOM- beginner help

Please make sure your "mechanic" checks the lower unit for the proper oil. Run the motor in a tub of water before taking it out to get used to the feel of the throttle. Some throttles are really touchy, some are adjustable, some are tight, etc. Safety, safety, safety, safety, safety....................

No Spark on top Cylinder

I recently had a no start situation after two days of perfect running. No spark to either of two plugs by grounding them to the block. All resistance readings were correct so changed both plugs and started on first pull. Even with new plugs couldn't see any spark by grounding plug to the block. ????...

Should i do this?

Poke under the frame in places looking for rust. Make sure you get a title that matches the number on the trailer frame. Good advice. I would be cautious because the trailer is pretty cheap and everything looks like it was painted the same color such as the fenders, frame, springs, etc. Seems like ...
