Great pic of Alex @Big_Red_Fred!  When is he being deployed?  You'll have to horsie sit for him while he's gone.

I spoke today about that, Its April 2018, they switched his orders from Africa to Germany for 6 weeks, but they may change again due to him having issues running, he tried Airborne Ranger School, cracked up some bones on a bad landing years ago, its affecting him running & keeps failing the run on his PT Test, Then he may go to the Desert in Nevada i think he said, Its hard to find a Good Soldier, But Our Sons have Great Fathers so it will always work out !

But your right about Horsie sitting, i said ill bring the D, 1054 & if any luck a GT14 along

Well, I finally pulled the flywheel from the Briggs that locked up.  Turns out that about 4 magnets decided to turn loose.  The alternator ring seems ok.  Guess that I got lucky.  Gonna have to source a flywheel and save it for another project.  Now, I've got another excuse to find another project after my bank account has a chance to recover from Christmas:ROTF:.

I've rotated the crank by hand and everything seems good.  Good compression, smooth, and no weird noises.  What type of glue would I use that I could trust?  I feel pretty lucky that no more harm was done than this.

Jeff, you know we do have a parts ranger, early round fender model that is screaming for a new power plant.  I've even got a good tranny I got from @oldredrider.  Frankenhorse possibly:auto-layrubber:!

oooooooooooo..... I do like me a lot o' them Frankenhosses....

 

You'd best be havin' a speaktoo with the significant other about moving all your families' living necessities to 'da workshop. You gots a lot to do out there this year!!!

Should be able to squeeeeze the kitchen stuff in one corner and the bed/bath stuff in another corner..... Maybe hang a TV on a spare wall....

No chairs or tables... you have tractors and workbenches for that.

Saves all the time walkin' to and fro between buildings ..

Yes honey I know it's a bit "snug" out here but just think of all the quality time we'll share.......!!!

 

Boy! I come up with some gooood ideas sometimes huh?  :ph34r: :hide:

Wow!  Now I'm really digging that idea!  Probably wouldn't work though.  Right now I'm working on an entertainment center that I promised the wife I'd build her for Christmas.  She's used to me working in the garage - she knows it's my therapy.  Keeps me sane.  She's the same way about school stuff (she teaches k, I teach 2nd) - she loves to read about school stuff and work on things for her class at night.  When I get home, I need something different and the horses give Emory and I some quality time together.
