  1. Oh man that so describes my situation right now . lol
  2. That was a project my Son and I worked on 8 years ago 1968 912. We went through everything, rebuilt the engine with larger cylinders and a street cam to increase the fun factor. It needs a tune up and valves adjusted before I get back to work.
  3. The first of the year I ordered a stitch and glue dinghy from CLC. It’s been keeping me busy this last week.

    A big Thank you to Hotbot. This is the first spot I go to when I get online, and now that I am practicing social distancing its even more important. Not sure if something like Patreon is a possibility but willing to send a couple of bucks to your favorite charity to support my best entertainment on the web.

    What can I say, I have been in the Appliance business since the 1970s. Used to have a Maytag and Kitchenaid store.

    I can't believe it! That's a 1970s Kitchenaid Supurba dishwasher. Those things were built like tanks and just won't die.

    That is just so wrong. On flat tappet air cooled engines you need a oil that has zinc and phosphorous in it.

    Its hard to express how much this thread has meant to me over the last 9 years but its the first place I go to when I get on the computer in the morning. I have spent hours going down worm holes researching photos, lots of nostalgic memories and of course great tits. Thank You!!!

    Building new water tank

    I am leaning more toward the flexible tanks. I am wondering how they would do in rough conditions since (I am assuming) they don't have baffles. The area is wedged shaped and gets narrower forward under the cabin sole. I would worry about the mass of the water surging forward as we decelerated at the bottom of a wave and pushing the cabin sole up.
