And yes, a sharp eye in the rear view when stopping. Something all surviving motorcyclists learn about That keen eye as well as keeping a viable escape path ahead, even when it means stopping a car length behind the car ahead. I know you know what I mean.

That gaspoline in the tank is even easier to light!

Weird Gary The five I emptied last year had a newer or older label?
Plus they hammered me for 55 bucks a can in A2

Don't forget to put your bail bondman on speed dial before you go!

Those Ann Arbor $55 cans were $35 cans at the local auto parts last summer.

The bulk sales place in PA is charging $2.70 per gallon, your container. They do deliver for free to certain areas but not Michigan.
I never make a special run but I do pick some up when passing thru

Just layin the options on the table.

Thankfully the fuel is still a bargain either way.

From a fire / explosion risk, gaspoline is far more hazardous than methanol.

Lol. Some "old school" work today Jim. Varnish, Laquer oil modified poly. And cat piss. 30:grit paper (called half cut by fear old Dad) cuts it all. Even this nasty old carpet mastic. Hardly ever run this tool anymore. Production machine. EVERYTHING you see here was made with American ingenuity, by Brothers and Sisters of excellence. God bless the USA.

I would like to buy a bench belt sander, but I need a new toolbox much more. I hope to buy one in a few weeks. I will buy a 7 or 8 drawer rolling unit, 26x21x40.

Have you already picked a tool box out?

well I did, it's a story too.
I don't need a big named box because I won't be opening it 30, 40 times a day. know what I mean. but I know what I want, as said I want a 21x 26x 40 roller. 7 or 8 drawers. I looked and looked on Googe Images for a week or so. I found them in 5 to 8 drawers, I want at least 3 shallow drawers because most my tools are hand tools. in short I went to Harbor Freight and they have an 8 drawer just what I want for $350. like I said I don't need a Snapon.

here is what happened,
A) so I got a HF C-Card so I can get 10% off. ($350-10% = $315)
B) I held off on buying for a few weeks. kept looking on Google Images at other boxes.
C) gee-golly,, happy happy joy joy the HF box went on sale for 15% off ($350-15% = $297)
D) so I should get both discounts because my card was never used!!!!!!!!
E) so my price should have been $267,,, ($350-15% = $297 -10% =$267)
F) went to the store to buy it.
G) as I looked at the box a guy that worked at the store told me that I will get both discounts because my C-Card was never used!
H) went to the cashier to buy the box and the Card Reader would not give me the $10% off my card. the lady told me it was "because I got the card from off the HF home-page and NOT threw the store". so the lady then said if I canceled the card she can get me another card threw the store and I will get both discounts. so she watched me cut the card up, and she signed me up,,, and guess what, I could not get another card for a week and the sale ended in 2 days.
J) S.O.B,, went home mad!
K) I called HF and I was told that what the lady told me was not true, and I should have got both discounts. but HF would not help me get the card discount because it was a discount the bank gives.
L) I called the store's manager, and he would not help me.

M) the end result; no HF tool box and as long as I live I will never look to buy from Harbor Freight again!!!

I found a 7 drawer roller at Jegs that I figured I would buy for the same price $350 and shipping was free, but today it's gone and Sumet has it for over $700 and shipping is NOT free.

well, I figure I have gone almost a life time without a drawer type rolling tool box. so I guess I can go the rest of my life without one.

Jim
PS LOL you asked if I found one LOL

I bought this one when I bought the Lathe, it holds all the lathe accessories in the drawers and lawn equipment batteries in the top. Made in Sedalia, Mo. @ $159.00. It has nice precise drawer sliders.

Wow Jim,

Reading that story made me mad too! Maybe I will quit buying that Harbor Fright junk as well
Don't know if you have Menards Stores in your area but they also sell boxes that are very similar to price and style.
No real reason to buy Snap-On for use around the house, the new big store boxes suffice just fine for most folks.
Sorry about the screw-up they hammered you with, hope you do get what you are looking for.

You need to get a new Saito to make up for the mental anguish!

Gary, I installed these little fellers in the Webra 20, they are the same size, the 20 has some serious compression.
Can't load picture, I'll be back. The site keeps telling me that there is a Security Code missing. The engine image loaded, unusual carb mount. The bearing dimensions are 19 x 10 x 5.

Good pic Dave.
Dang, those Webras are downright handsome!

Classic looks and so nicely made. Good deal on the carb too.

Pretty slick, the way the cylinder and case fit together.

Nice engine Dave. I have a classic Webra Silverline 61 in a parts bucket I should get to one of these days.

After loosening & cleaning up the Magnum Pro 45 on my Force One I decided to go on an engine cleaning spree. Here’s my latest batch of ready to go refreshed engines.

The LA 40 was a pain in the butt. 4 of the screw heads were stripped 2 of which required grinding a slot across the head to extract them. The screws are pretty soft and doesn’t take much to slip and strip them. I sure wish people would invest in the proper JIS screwdriver sets or leave them alone.

The Irvine 53 I got super lucky with. It was almost seized and the bearings felt very rough. The internals looked brand new so I just oiled it and now it’s super smooth with awesome compression. Love these engines!

The Saito 56 bk was basically seized as well and very gunky but cleaned up very nicely. Most of the parts went through an ultrasonic bath but the crankcase was cleaned with raw fuel and the bearings are very smooth now. I found a rocker arm screw was damaged as if the pushrod popped out of it. Weird. Luckily my LHS had some in stock. Not sure how to clean the muffler better (oven cleaner)? A valve adjustment and a $10 prop nut stopper is all it needs now.



Parts is parts.

Oven cleaner will eat aluminum so, no.

36 to 48 hours using full strength Green Conventional Antifreze in a crock pot set to 170°f will remove all the carbon from all the engine parts without discoloring the parts in any way. No Ultrasonic cleaner needed.

The nightmares you've heard about engine discoloring using antifreeze are true, if you allow the solution to get too hot. I have yet to have one discolor at 170°f.

I bought a US General Yellow tool box. I watched comparison videos between it and Husky and a few others, including Snap On. The US General boxes are very robust. I got the big one, then last week bought the tool cart too and already have it put to use. Most HF stuff is junk, but some of it is also quality, just have to be vigilant on what you get.

I had issues with Tractor Supply. They supposedly "price match" up to 30 days after purchase. BS. I bought a flatbed trailer, then a few days later saw that Northern Tool had the exact same trailer for $100 less. I contacted them to price match, they wouldn't do it, claiming it wasn't the same trailer, yet, I had the paperwork showing the model number and the NT ad had the exact same model number. They refused to honor it. So, yeah I avoided TS for 3 years, they lost a lot of business from me and others.

When my Snap-on tool chest got stolen back in 94-95 I bought a Husky tool chest set, lower/upper, and loaded it up with Husky "pro" tools. The roller bearing drawers have worked flawlessly for over 25 yrs, as have the tools. I have only replaced a 3/8 ratchet, 1/4" drive 9mm deep well socket and a 3/8" drive #25 Torx, all caused by abuse. I'm quite impressed with the durability, I use the crap out of them.

I walked into HD last fall with the stripped out 3/8" ratchet with no receipt and they handed me a replacement. The ratchet seems every bit as nice as the original but I have no idea how well the tool chests are made these days.

2st talk;
guys, I have to wonder if Gary knows my mind is always stirring when thinking glow engines. I mean why not, his does. I say this because Gary gave me 4 old HP 40s. 2 are front Carb RC 40s. and 2 are rear Carb CL 40s. one of the RC 40s is in very-very good shape. it has very-very good compression and the bearing are good to. the CL engines are all there but all apart, their Cranks are good and mounted in their snouts/bearings are great too.., see where I am going here? I think Gary does.

so, on the next warm day I am going to hot tank (with antifreeze) the good RC case with it's head off. I will not remove it's piston and ring. and the back plate and crank/bearings/snout will not be tanked. when reassembling I will use a CL back plate/disk valve/crank and snout and when finished and all together I will have a Rear Carb RC 40. slick.

LOL no Gary, as good as a friend you are you can't have your HPs back LOL
thank you Gary!!

Jim
PS, errrrrr, it's snowing, errrrrr!!

That Irvine .53 pictured above is without a doubt one of the finest engines ever made. Bob Davis made 100's of Diesel conversion heads for our military mounted on Irvine .53's. I talked him out of the prototype head.
MVVS .49 with Graupner 12x7 DDD ABC mix===9,775 rpm
Fox .50 Graupner 12x7 DDD ABC mix===9,150
Irvine .53 Graupner 12x7 DDD Abc mix===10,121
Webra .50/Bisson Pitts=Gr.12x7 DDD ABC=====9.950

SuperTigre .45 ABC Gr.-12x7 DDD ABC mix===9,800
SuperTigre .51 Graupner 12x7 DDD ABC mix===9,650
OS LA .46 Graupner 12x7 DDD Plane Fuel==9,450
OS LA .65 Bolly 13.5x8 DDD Plane Fuel===9,300
PAW .60 same Bolly 13.5x8 DDD Plane fuel===7,300

It was the king of the .50 sized conversions. The prop on all was a Graupner Grey 12 x 7.



A Saito 80 will run on Davis Diesel fuel as if born to it turning a Bolly Clubman 13.5 x 8 at 9,000 rpm.
