    Coooooooold in Texas

    Power is out, again...... Just kinda wierd for it to start becoming normal to crank up the generator a couple times every 24hrs for 4-6hrs at a go. Drove through town last night when the electric was down and it was almost creepy. About 90% of our smallish town (12,k ppl) was totally dark. And...

    Sat in line for almost a hour and a half to get propane bottles refilled today. Currently 33°, raining, and blowing like snot here. This area definitely isn't prepared for any kind of ice or snow so we'll see.

    Tested the injector and it seemed to be fine, my guess is that number six being all the way at the end of the fuel rail, at 5k+ rpm for more than a few seconds there wasnt enough fuel pressure left by the time it got down there. Causing it to lean out. Maybe the fuel pump is getting weak or...

    Savvy at King of the Hammers... again!

    I would've thought that something else would be attached to the end of their winch lines. No?

    Lincoln and Hobart are great. Miller is great to. Used a Miller 212 a lot at a job I use to work but I'd never buy one unless I started a fab shop or somthin.

    Well I was planning on selling it for sure by the end of this year. Its just my dairy with high miles. Only about 5 miles round trip to work, so not really terribly worried with the longevity if I get it rebuilt.

    Alright, this one really got me weirded. I hooked the air compressor up and put 110psi to it. Holds pressure just fine. Even unhooked the air and cranked it a second then hooked it up again trying to get the piston at a different spot. Did that multiple times. No dice. So hooked the compression...

    Ok, I had wondered about that to and I'm planning on doing that this evening if I have time. But would I have some issues with overheating, coolant loss and such if that was the case? Or not necessarily? I have been running it some just trying to figure it out and I haven't had issues with temp...
