Application for Certification

Why the hell can't I be an "old guy" too. I got a fairly early start -- during the Truman administration. That oughta qualify me for something.



And this nice man is my friend:



So can I get in the club?

Well, can I?

Further qualitications for Old Guy status:

1) I almost never have to unzip -- since I'm generally already unzipped;

2) I have no use for bank deposit slips -- nothing to deposit.

3) I quit trusting "dry" farts in the late 80's.

I think anyone that signs their rim strips qualifies as an old guy or something along those lines.

BTW, there is absolutely no part of the RFS engine with which I'm not familiar.

You don't need special tools:



The crankshaft is easy to find:



Bad main bearing:



And the ultra-scientific test for big end rod bearing:
