Good exercise I guess!
    I do not envy you. I hope the rest of your winter involves some relaxation

    I'm a glutton for punishment, was just about home from work, got a call from the office, ended up fixing a water line. Couldn't find the leak, way to many utilities in the way. Pulled the plug at 9pm. Got it all repaired, twice. Sucker exploded under the road ,feel bad for the guy footing the bill.

    Picked up 1 inch shorter brake line for my elec-project $10 bucks (China most likely). I know this seems odd but works quite well, a heat gun would be to hot I’d think besides I don’t own one. The ends are pressed on parallel but I need about a 20* offset at the rear master end. Well a crock pot, tape to tape it around the edge some steam and heat and 10mins and slight pressure twisting and presto-
    Worked great....
    Yes that’s buffalo chicken (dinner)
    Yes I could have spent more on a correct fit line.
    I figured this was somewhat comical so figured I’d share.

    Saw this in a Truckin magazine from 1984.

    Looks like the 200x with painted to look like one of the rigs...

    Getting the 3 point hitch mounted on the jeep
    What a battle. Hitch pivots were so frozen that I had to use the backhoe bucket curl to break it free (although it did adequately test the mounting hardware)


    Old hitch, This was also a three point hitch but different set up. I prefer the hydraulics coming from underneath with the new hitch.




    New hitch, heavy bugger



    Next, time to start the hydraulics.

    Drove to Massachusetts and picked up a very original 87 Tecate 3 roller. As soon as it was in the garage, the kx500 motor was installed

    Making a hinson wanna be clutch basket for a blaster. Was more of a test to see my skills over lunch. Adding re cushions and bolting gear to housing. Might start offering services via ebay. Match filed fins, oil holes added, taping tomorrow where I removed pressed on rivets, easy mod for the outside the box thinkers. Hinson $200 my time say hour total. It was very low hour engine why not make it last another 20 years with few bucks.


    Btw 3 weeks into a crushed index finger with multiple fractures yet.

    Chili Bowl

    Got back yesterday from the Chili Bowl in Tulsa. Midget sprints racing indoors at the Tulsa Expo Center (10 acres under 1 roof.)
    Christopher Bell won the last 3 but Kyle Larson broke that streak to pick up his first Chili Bowl win. Over 300 entries with only 24 making the feature race.

    https://www.chilibowl.com/news/?i=80575


    Little bit of drinking, eating, and watching some racing over a long weekend.

    Needed an open end wrench to tighten the massive nut that came with the Tusk axle. Guess I could have bought one, but that wouldn’t have been any fun and they don’t sell them in orange.

    I kind of hoping Motion Pro takes offense to the use of their decal.

    I just purchased a bunch of Tusk accessories for the KLR. They were inexpensive so I hope the quality is good

    I think you'll be very impressed with the price to quality ratio. At first I avoided their parts because I thought they were too cheap to be any good.

    My understanding is that Rocky Mountain ATV owns the Tusk brand and I have yet to be disappointed with any Tusk products I've bought or installed for others.

    Glad to hear

    I paid $438 for new engine guards and a set of black panniers with the mounting hardware..... that's unbelievable compared to anything BMW or KTM or even Honda Africa twin

    Tusk mas produces. Anything run in larger numbers is cheaper, I run a machine shop. It suprises you at times, 1set up cost, minimal operator time, push buttons load parts. Those lock nuts can be done on a turning center normally in 4ft bar lengths, then transferred or programmed for 2nd ops.. long as the metal is what it says it is the name means nothing because I'm 95% sure somone guy in Taiwan is doing the work only to bring here and sell to us.
