You feel foolish when.....

You need to turn the front wheels to make it easier to reach the bottom radiator bolts, so you walk back beside the platform, grab hold of the wheel and give it a serious turn from the ground. The steering wheel spins freely in your hand, and as you nearly fall over against the rear wheel you realize you are looking straight at the front half of the steering shaft laying on top of your rolling tool table, right where you put it 2 days ago. :oops:

I'll not pick on my aged elders short term memory. I will warn them that they may have a SLIGHT carb to manifold leak when they go to restart it though :D

(I'm going to regret this I'm sure............. but why exactly does a carb need to be unbolted to get the radiator off?)

I will not pick on smart alek punks observation abilities, but do you see a governor in that picture. I am in process of rebuilding governor also.

To those folks that are unaware, John, Scrivet and Rabbit Holler Flash have known each other for years and have been ribbing one another for years -- long before this forum existed.

Man I was hoping to keep that info on the qt. Letting people know you hang around BOTH those guys could hurt a reputation.

Way long before this forum existed, maybe before electricity existed. LOL

The bad part is that I occasionally let them come onto my property, but I do keep a camera handy to document the evidence of what happens while they are here.
