busy day

Today I:
  • Got up early for an eye appointment. Got pics of my eye; for example:
    the all-seeing eye... or part of it
    Then ordered some way-cool glasses, and paid for the whole shebang. And do I ever hope I get paid this Friday.


  • Bought a new air filter for the Honda scoot and installed it. sweet lil' scoot


  • Re-fastened the loose bolt that holds on the scoot's muffler; used a nice coat of Threadlocker to keep it from backing out and rattling.


  • Bought a new coil and resistor for the hearse. Installed said parts. hearse in its natural habitat


  • That didn't give me a spark (grrrr), so scooted back to the auto-parts store and bought a new set of points and a condenser. Still no spark.


  • blzblack dropped in and helped with car stuff on his way home.


  • Muttered, "Heck with you," to the car and resumed work on the pickup's carburetor. my sweet ol' pickup truck


  • Right at sunset, finished rebuilding the truck's carb and gave it a test-fire-up. Vroom, started right up! Good ol' truck. But with the carb all rebuilt, it idles really high... I think I found out why it was sucking so much gas before. Need to adjust it in the daylight.

  • After dinner, hit Target for some post-Xmas gift-wrap and storage clearances.

  • Wrote this.


Good night, y'all!

Best,
Chris

Nice eyeball Chris. I've never seen one from the inside out before.
Maybe I've have to come down and help get your Hearse running. Let me know if you need a hand. Mel

Re: Eyeball
Heh.

Hey, I might just take you up on that offer. Can't figure out why it's not getting any spark... you get it started and you can have it, sir *g*
