I'm think I'm going to get new ones on the ones you're sending me for assurance. Mine were quite easy to move, no noises though.





Chad, it takes wood, aka trees, and turns them into pellets to use in pellet burning stoves.


Duh

I noticed a few small punctures and tiny tears on the Rovers cv boot during the diff job, just patched it with a thin layer of RTV black since I had it on hand. Not a permanent or elegant solution but it'll do for now.

Edit, Matt, why? What's wrong with, say, just sticking firewood in there?

Double edit: wait, wood burning stoves? People still have those?

Ok, that's a good idea, I'll do that. I'm not buying new ones at $30 each.

Ever hear of a pellet stove? Same concept as a wood stove, but you take a bag of pellets you buy and dump them in, rather than buy wood, or splitting wood. Easier system.

Nope, not yet. I'm sure they'll be here this week.

Yeah, that's probably my fault. I used Parcel Post. They're always slow as hell.

Nope. And I didn't think anyone used wood stoves anymore, either.

Really? Half the people in the North East use wood stoves. A pellet stove you simply lift the lid, and pour the pellets in, it lights and feeds by itself, pretty easy.

I sealed the deal on that turbo stuff. $800 shipped.


I just need another $150 in my paypal before I can pay him. So if anybody needs parts, this would be a great time to let me know

Oh. Wow. Everything out here has central heat. Hell, the fireplaces are just for decoration anyway.

My new truck shoots flames its stuck in first gear too. I found reverse at the expense of shifting It runs great except for the tranny, but a 700r4 isnt hard to get (<3 GM for never changing the design). Once the new tranny is in, time to go off roading! (I'm onto you chad!)
