I prefer much more manual machining than pressing buttons
I like to get my hands dirty, cut fingers on sharp edges, removing hot chips from my hair, all those nice things
Sounds like my kind of fun too!!
I finally had a minute to start reassembling the 1965 Mercedes boat motor.
Now that looks like fun!!
Next few days I have other work though [hedge trimming for instance]
Awwww, now how can you simply stop in the middle like that!!
Unless your waiting on parts to arrive.
Well, it's not like I was rushing to get this done but it would be nice to have it out of the way so I can get back to the rock pile and house/shop building.
I am glad I resisted the temptation to beat on that round thingy with a rubber hammer, trying to make it go.
Maybe tomorrow it will show up at my door. Then again the new AC Delco factory oil pan with the factory drain plug won't be here until Monday, I just found it today on Amazon for about 60% off.
Yet another one of those open box deals so I had to.
Cooler hose and fittings should be here by then too. I couldn't get myself to use the 3/8" fittings that only had about a 1/4" passage way so I opted for 1/2" hose and fittings instead.
I was surprised that the cooler came with such a poor selection of fittings, plus the hose supplied with it is 23/64" what's with that from a company who is owned by Spicer.
The cooler fitting that came with it on the right, my upgraded fitting in the middle.
That ought to allow a sizeable amount more flow.
