Thanks for accepting me to the chapter!! I'm down in Medford, I just bought a 1980 F100 4x2 I-6 300cid 4.9L, and it is a fixer! i've already got about 60hrs work into it and more to come, I'm starting school up at RCC for Diesel Technology. I was a EN3 in the USN and worked on Cummins, Fairbanks-Morse, and Colt Pielstick engines. I'm getting ready to rebuild my carburetor and get new tires. Want to know more just hit me up.

me to. Never failed get the deisel looking all pretty and clean then you would have to open her up for PMS and get that %$^%$@#%^@&$&^%$ carbon all over the place again and be cleaning for 4 more days.

Loved it. No wonder I am half deaf and have ringing in my ears.

I hated doing blowdowns before starting the engines. The oil would go everywhere. Loved watching the new guys not trip the rack and try doing blowdowns, what a racket.

I worked as a Boiler operator, for the last 9 months on my first boat while I was over in Africa, and you gotta love the cleaning, cleaning, and more cleaning they make you do when your PMS is done. And Waltharper, I'd like to sit down and grab a pint sometime, I also am still trying to get my truck so I can get her on the road.
