Stuck float on carb that was recently rebuilt

Yes. If the float is stuck you will not use it until it is fixed.

COWL REPAIR

3M makes a weatherstrip adhesive that I have found to be very good at gluing rubber door seals to door frames. It also works well in other types of applications.

Insurance

Back in 1989 after hurricane Hugo came through Charleston SC insurance providers would walk down the same street and if they found out you had flood insurance they would declare your house was damaged by wind. If they found out you had wind and hail insurance they would declare your house was damage...

old mixed gas

Turbotodd, You are correct. I used to deliver gas to stations by tanker. One thing that heard people say a lot is that one brand was better than another brand. They do not know that it all came from the same place. Exxon, Shell, Amoco, Hess and any others trucks would load at the same terminal getti...

Vaping

Jim, I ordered one. That may help me find those small air leaks. As for the stick incense, I don't think that would be wise since it is aircraft fuel trucks I am working on and they wouldn't be happy knowing I am under them with a smoldering flame. Thanks for the tip.

Vaping

I almost started vaping. I am not a smoker or was trying to quit smoking. I just wanted to be able to blow some "smoke". I work on big trucks and would like to be able to blow some smoke around to find small air leaks. A smoke machine built for that purpose cost upwards of $800. I am partially deaf ...

Any pilots, or wanna be pilots on here?

I know some aircraft have "Autoland" but it is limited to certain conditions including weather and airport environments and instruments available. I work around airliners and there are so many different types and models it is hard to keep track of them all. Even planes of the same type may have thei...

Springfield Armory 911 380

I have put around 300 rounds through it and every magazine load has had jams, Failed to fires, loading issues. Ouch! On the contrary, I have a S&W BodyGuard 380 with integrated laser that has digested every round of ~7 brands of ammo and bullet types, even when loaded into the same magazine togethe...

Why do fish strike lures?

I have seen fish on a bed pick up a lure or live bait and spit it out outside of the bed. Not hungry just getting rid of something that is in the bed.

Astrophotography

I was a amateur astronomer when I was younger but not as a photographer. I used to be able to name the stars but it has been 40 years since I was really involved in it.

I hit a rock and didn't like it.

That is an awful sound to hear as you are traveling down the river. It hurts. I know it doesn't mean much but it could have been worse. At least you were not ejected from the boat when it hit.

Coca-Cola Orange and Vanilla

Haven't tried it. Not really a soft drink drinker myself. Coca-Cola makes much more drinks and flavors than people realize. Go to their museum in Atlanta. When you come out of the museum there will be room where you can get samples of the different drinks and flavors sold around the world. Some are ...
