    scored a sweet deal on a generator

    We have a rubber hose from under the house that we connect to the natural gas connection on the generator, with a valve to turn the flow on and off. That way we can move the generator and pick it up as needed.

    scored a sweet deal on a generator

    Was at my cousins house helping him clean out his shed, as hes preparing to sell his house. He's getting rid of pretty much everything.

    ratchet straps

    spin on fuel filter

    I finally have my 15 hp Johnson running great, along with the bearings replaced in the foot. Although it sounds like overkill, I want to put a spin on Racor filter/housing, along with a valve to shut off fuel flow to run the carburetors dry every time I come in from a fishing trip, great thing...
