Subject: FTE Perf - Freecell and other trivia.....:-(

I hope you guys know I'm on game 1700 now and it's all your fault! I only
play freecell when I'm extremely bored which only happens when I run out of
mail............since I'm a touch typist and a speedy reader you guys have a
grave responsability :-)

Ever notice how bad gas has a different smell to it and any car buff (or truck
buff) is well aware of the differance? Some people never learn....I had to get
the tank out of the cougar but it was full and then I had to get it off my tranny
jack with the same problem so I dumped it in my pickup tank thinking my
460 could run on anything and wouldn't mind but I should have let my nose
be my guide. After 7 bottles of dry gas and one of injector cleaner (just
happened to be lying there so I threw it in too :-)) the truck still sits in the
driveway waiting for someone to get up the guts to try to drive it somewhere
:-( My son wrecked his truck so I let him use mine and he struggled with it
for 3 days before I relented and let him use the bird (took him 3 times as long
to get home as normally with the bad gas).

Need to change the oil in my bronco but don't have one of those fancy
funnels with the extendable tube and 5 gal pail on rollers to use with my lift
yet so I keep putting it off. Grainger wants $300 for one and MickyCarr
wants $49 but with no wheels. Harbour freight doesn't list one. Tried one
vehicle using the tranny jack and it seemed to work till I grabbed the pan and
it tipped and spilled oil all down the front of me, shirt shorts, underwear,
socks and shoes all soaked, didn't miss a single part of me! :-( Still have
about 25# of speedy dry on the floor to soak it up!

My son got some shelves given to him free, about 20' long and 6' high, heavy
duty steel ware house stuff. I'll be using those to good advantage for sure :-)
I've already got the location for my shop computer on the bathroom wall in
front of the lift so I can look up parts just like they do at the ford garages and
room on the walls there also for all my manuals, pencil drawer, phone......:-)
Ideas I got, money seems to be a fleeting thing OTOH......:-(

I wonder how well epoxy will hold up to being scrubbed with speedy dry,
walking around on it till I get around to sweeping it up etc.???

Anyone else experience power outage this week due to storms? I took 2
days off due to keeping the generator running :-) Worked on the bath room
while managing all the breakers etc..

78 F-150, 2wd, 460, C-6, 235's
78 Bronco 351M, Np 435, Np 205, 33's
78 LIncoln Town Car, 460, C-6, 19.5' long!
9000#, in ground vehicle lift, Woooo Hoooo!

Are pumps out of the question and would that include siphoning? Or does it
have to be removed when full?

I don't know of any other way than dumping it to get water out of gasoline.
Unless you have a big enough container to let it rise to the top and scoop
it off. Sounds like you might have the time to do that........

What about the tried and true method of crawling under it while it's on the
ground? It's not exactly like the Bronco's ground clearance is slammed.

- -> Ok Perfessor Samuel,
- -> tell the class now.....How is oil control related to engine ping???

Perfessor? Perfessor? Perfessor?
Now wait just a Guarsh Darn Minute here.
If you had spelled that Azz#ole, perhappz...

"Oil" burns at a different rate then Gasoline.
"Oil" has a different # of BTU/Pound.
If we build an engine to burn Alky we crank in a bunch of compression, and
double the amount of fuel due to the BTU's in the fuel and the Burn
characteristics. We change the Design radically for Diesel, and if we wanted
to burn oil in our engines we would start out with a diesel engine.
When we introduce Lube oil into the combustion process we are bringing in a
bunch of chemicals that should not be there. And that changes the burn rate
of the air fuel mixture basically making it an uncontrolled process. I have
been told by my betters that the oil additive packages by themselves will
cause detonation/preignition problems. I have also heard from people that I
trust that the Polymers that are used to get the multi-viscosity ratings are
really strong pingers. But mostly I have observed that Oil causes ping.
I have not done the Chemistry on this for over 20 years but simply put Oil
causes detonation/preignition problems, and that is enough for me to go to
great lengths to keep it out of the Combustion Processes.

Not Professor kauz I aint got a degree from nowhere but Hard Knock U.
The only letters after my name are 'SOB'.
Just an SOB that can't afford to have other people build my toys, and tend
to get more then a little PO'd when some jurk takes my $$$ and delivers
znada for it, and I fall for it.
This "attitude" causes one to go in search of the truth to avoid the sucker
factor.
If along the way I can help another, or dispel some of the pure Bull S#it
out there, I have a self imposed obligation to do so. It's pay back to all
of the people that have helped me over the last 2 plus decades.
The saying goes:
"You never know what you know, until you try to explain it to another."
Attempting to explain some subject and not perpetuate more BS is good for
finding the limits of my knowledge and causing me to go in search of the
parts that I don't know or understand.
Please not professor.
Now I have to go and read a bunch of chemistry!
