You can install the track like that to wedge the door in the closed position

I answered one of the big questions of life itself.

I don't know about you guys but I have always wondered what the oil coller inside a Sicon XB radiator looked like.
And why is it that whenever the weather turns cold some device contianing water fails?
The radiator in my kids XB shit the nest and I decided to cut it up and see whats inside.



It's tubular. Well made for sure. Thinking about trying it as an oil cooler.

Went for a 30 mile ride on the sled. Worked great! The old body isn't like it used to be though.

Consuming beer now and going to the living room to watch the Vikes kick Green Bays ass.

Watched the roof leak. Dang flat roofs and ice build up. Think it is leaking from the drains that go to gutters. I hate flat roofs

Re-jetted the carb in my son's CR85R (for the cold weather). And noticed a bad leak in the sink in my garage.

I know I feel so bad. Not sure what's worse, using the Wee as a stand or making the FJR sleep outside for the last two weeks. Please don't call child protective services! I'll get better, I promise.

Right thats what I mean. The track can be installed in a taper towards the floor. This makes the door fit tight in the track when closed. This keeps it from rattling in the wind.

Started working on a 8 HP briggs on a rear engine Snapper rider. This is an early 300 series mower that a tenant left when she moved. Once I found that it had spark,took off the carb and soaked it in an old coffee maker with heated Krud Kutter solution. Put some carb cleaner and compressed air thru it and with a gasket or two,it is ready to test.

Not today - yet - but going through the process of trying to get a '79 Guzzi V1000 G5 running again:



Heads retorqued, valves adjusted, points cleaned/adjusted, (static) timing set, new battery installed, and getting ready to dig into the carbs and replace the throttle cables. Waiting on parts, so can only go but so far.

Local NYD ride cancelled due to yukky weather, so will probably get out there a little later and play in the (cold) grease. .
