    ^^ Ditto.

    After taking another look at the thermostat setup on the Caddie I said f*** it. I'll run the stock 'stat to the next service interval. The original coolant and the internal passages that I could see all looked nice and clean. I hunted all over for a block drain, as the hose inlet and outlet on the engine seemed rather high up, but could not locate one. I ended up dumping a bit on the garage floor when I drained the radiator, so my best guess is that around 2/3 of the total volume of coolant was actually changed. The shocker was seeing the radiator after removing the splash guard. Its core is only around 5/8" thick, could even have been a bit less.

    I'm not pushing that issue, at all. Mower is 80% ready to go, just need to pull the deck off, sharpen the blades and grease things up and I'll be ready to roll.

    Truck box is 75% sanded and nearly ready to be flipped upside down to take care of the bottom side, and hopefully prevent future rust issues.

    Survived another Orlando trip. Damn that place has gotten more built up. Universal is building a new water park now.

    Jeff you need to get out more....



    This time of year is great time to visit the parks. Not to big of crowds and the temps are warm enough to do the water rides and not freeze your ass off but not roast when not on them.

    We did Universal (also kinda pissed with them on one thing) The Harry Potter rides are good, not recommended if you get motion sickness easy. The Hulk and Rock-it coasters are a blast. Even the King Kong attraction was very good. I think the Terminator show is on it's last legs of it's run, the 3D is bad compared to the Minon's, Transformers, Spiderman, etc, hell it is just the worst now. Hurt my eyes, Shrek too and that was a fun show when it 1st came out. Simpsons still is fun but would be better if the went to HD graphics. My bitch with the Orlando Universal was they made such a big deal about opening up a Walking Dead attraction at their park but failed to say that it's only in the Hollywood location for the year and only from Sep to Oct for Orlando.


    This trip as always re-enforced my belief that there should be a size limit enforced for Yoga or spandex pants/shorts for ppl. It's just too much to take....

    They have a (for us) a new place outside the park called Toothsome Chocolate Emporium.

    OMG the food was awesome.....the deserts too. If you're going to spend $60-$100 in the part for their food you're better off coming outside and eating here for the same amount.

    I always had a good time at Universal etc. Other than paying insane prices to get in and for everything inside but if you don't think about the money it's a good time. It's good to go new places too... we are spoiled with waterparks in WI and sometimes we get caught up planning so many trips there we forget to go outside of our local destinations.

    Audi really stuffed that 4.2 liter V8 into that A4 chassis when they made the S4. I'm pretty sure at this point you need to pull the motor to change the headers... which he was anyway. The frame rails actually go over the manifolds. The heads are large and cover the gapes on each side of the motor but big heads are expect on a v8 with 5 valves per cylinder. Other than the heads/valvetrain the motor isn't very big but somehow they fit 9.5 quarts of oil in

    Well, I ordered a rear main oil seal and oil seal backing plate gasket. Gonna split my tractor and replace the seal as it's leaking. About 30 years old and 1100 hours, it's started leaking a bit this winter during storage. I was looking into getting a new subcompact tractor with a 60" mower deck and front end loader, but after doing some budgeting I decided I didn't want to dip into my monthly monetary 'buffer' that far for that long. Sucks, since it's the beginning of a new model year and they're deeply discounting new '16 model year tractors pretty heftily. Honestly, after stopping at the Massey Ferguson dealer and ordering the seal and gasket, and talking to the guys there who gratefully showed me the shop manual, I'm kind of excited to tackle this project. Other than the fact that I'm dealing with diesel oil (blacker than Toby's ass), it seems to be a surprisingly easy ordeal. Split the engine from the transmission at (what would be) the bell housing (after unhooking the steering drag link, fuel lines, controls and wiring), unbolt the backer/adapter plate, unbolt the oil seal backing plate, replace the seal (think pinion seal on a rear axle), and bolt it all back together. Sounds easy, right?
