And with wood prices now. Just came from HD, OSB was $27. What kills me is you know they bought in bulk under prior contract and didn't pay that.

Doing it yourself is satisfying, but is way more work than you think, and where I am now.

If can afford it, pay for it. If you have time and the equip, go for it.

I got a hyd buffer to try on mine. I have a nice spot on my prop for a 180 range, great idea!

HB, mine is 18 next month, and the boys are 16/13, oct is busy.

Unloaded the Lift today, almost slid off! Had to winch it off. The ol HF 2500# did a great job.

Ordered a new lift pump for the DMax. Got the Dmax Fass lift pump only from Summit so it has a warranty. Seems the ones off Amazon do not.

I already have everything plumbed with a filter.

Trick with gas is use only a few drops if you need to. Then as said, light it right away. Look at the youtube vids how the fumes travel.

I used to much and was a fire fighter for around 20 minutes. I about collapsed after that incident (in my mid 20s)learning a huge lesson.

Check the draw on the fans when running and when they start. Could be a huge spike.

Anyway, checking out the TH as it will be going the ridge soon as the pad is finished. Should be a little better sleeping arrangment than the cont.

I had sealed the roof up some last year, but not good enough it seems. Looks like I had water coming in on the other side from my repair doing the same thing. Mushrooms were there and some wall pushed out. Then I found a couple cases of canned goods gone bad, leaking pretty well, but most stayed in the wrapped cases.

You can also see where the ceiling has given a little about the last 6' or so. Plan is to seal, cover and get it dried out to see if I want to repair once the shop is closed in.

I will save that for my counters at the ridge. I'm thinking a skim coat to fill and broom finish.

Compressor is back where it should be in the last picture and it allows for the gate to swing all the way in leaving the room for a 40" gate.

Reason does not cross her mind, very frustrating. Its the old saying about women think with their hearts. It will bite one day.

So far I'm not worried about the kids. Even my daughter does not date yet and turns 18 next month, boys have no interest at all, oldest turns 16 next month.

I heard about this last week, disgusting the way they look at it. I did hear that even some Dems got bent out of shape on this, but the tide was moving.

I also understand this is moving towards or includes 14 being the age of consent, is this the middle ages or what. (my wife thinks newsoms a saint) Sure loves to hear himself speak  :tongue:

They are working on several bills now to circumvent prop 13 (keeps prop tax low) and redo the business side driving more of them out of Kali.

Did you get a concrete grinding blade to smooth it off?


As a matter of fact, yes. Got the cheapo from HF ($45) but had a coupon. It worked way better than I thought it would. In fact I chipped away just a tad to much and may get some filler. Pretty good now though, smoothed the corner and will round the transition a little more tomorrow.

HF Grinder held up good even getting a little wet. Think I overheated it once, came back on after a rest.

Then I cut slots, trying to keep the depth in line with the ramp angle.

Then I used my new Ingersol Rand air hammer to break the chunks out and level the cut some.

As many of you know the power company ran all new gas lines a few months back. In that they replaced a pad by my meter and at my request made it longer for my compressor, causing a little step where the gate was. Fast forward to today I finally measured out for the compressor and found I will need to trim about a 1x2' section. This gives me a nice little ramp where the new 40" gate will be. Plus I can park the manlift over there for now.

So here is where I am starting. Using my ol HF 7" grinder with a masonry blade. After cutting around the edge I decided to use water. Made a little mess, but no dust and it cut way better.

Went and picked this up yesterday. Seems to function great. Batteries show serviced on 7-20 and looked in good shape (acid and cables)

Leveled the trailer out (1.5* or 3*) so it would lift and the youngest got a nice view. Tires still show tread. GR-20, so 20' lift at 350lbs for a 26' working height. The 12/15 list 500lbs, I think it has to do with the mast. Only 30x60 so esay to store even here.

This will be great for building and some few things I have to do around the house in Ca, so for now it will stay here.

That looks like to much work. Long as everyone is OK though.

I use the moving blankets (HF) but don't let whatever soak, use a tarp and you are gold.

We use regular tents with a tarp over them. Keeps the air barrier and the snow off.

Yes, layers are your friend. Scouts do a Dec Yosemite trip every year, year before was Tahoe. I have a 0 bag, but you still need layers and no more mummies for me, I need XL.

Yep, a tarp will get a normal tent through OK, but have good ground cover. I also got clip on spikes for my shoes.

Not looking for a whole system, I have a filter. Just want a good pump. I have limited access with the titan tank down there.

Recommendations?

I replaced all the lines cept the ones coming up from the cooler. They look fine, but will look again.

I have not checked or replaced the pressure valve on the rail, I have one from PPE.

I believe my little kennedy pump is shot. Lost it when the BCM went bad. Have tried to run it but no good it seems. Just a 3-4psi and I am tuned so thinking a better pump is in order now.

The filter head is good though. Didn't put fuel in either filter and it pumped up fine after a hundred pumps or so. I have a 15mcn by the pump and a 2mcr up top with new lines (when I did the tank and pump)

Jr,  your low fuel pressure doesn’t always mean pump, your tuning could be calling for more fuel then pump or cp3 can provide,  mine does it at WOT everyone and again.

Mine is doing it with passing and towing. Going into limp when towing is no fun, you can't always pic a place to stop!

I am tuned around 500. Hoping a good lift pump will help that. Otherwise thinking of a 30 over pump.

Just did a full oil change on the Dmax. Right at 200k so why not start out right. Was due for oil anyway and fuel was close.

I am getting a 087 (fuel pressure) on it time to time. Heavy towing once and passing twice now. I don't think the Kennedy Lift is running at all, normal fuel pressures seem OK. Looking at the Airdog Raptor 150 as I already have a filter down there. (both filters looked great) I think a few guys have had issues with FASS, what do you think about the Dog?

I see there is a CP3 tune up kit too, is that worth the $$$ or just do that with the pump if it goes that way?

Yes, the air filter was in bad shape with the fires. Glad I have a pre filter sock.

All the triton motors have done that. Think they addressed it some but it still happens.

Was cooler today, but looked like mars outside. Littlary red but doesn't show in pics. Blew ash off of everything, ticked as I spent about 3 hours cleaning the pool yesterday.

Got parts for changing the small garage opener, another project here. Kids locked up the old one thinking it was fun to lift the door when opening. I left it locked for the last couple years over that.

Tad more than what I wanted, hoping for around 1k, with fee's a tad over 2k. There were 6 on ebay today, 2 went for less, 2 went more. Same thing on Ebay/craigslist going for 4-6K BIN.

With just being 52x30 parked and using regular 110. Storage and charging are simple.

I will get it friday

Well, trying to get ahold of the guy who does the dozer work. Just plain ready for it to be done.

Also, I just picked this up on Ebay. Put in an odd amount and it worked, last second. (I know about auction sniper) There were 5, mine was mid priced. Just an hour away to pickup.

My roof height is 21' and I can use it around here first getting my eave's done above the garage.

I put all my food in cooler at the ridge. Caught the little pack rat that was trying to get in in a live trap. He died about an hour later, think he blew his heart out.

Kub has been running a little warm in 100f weather so not really concerned as it cools with lower rpm and not working the hydro so hard.

Glad the dog is back, I feel you bringing him home everyday here.
