    Purchased M1 LV HP ATF

    I ordered this from O'Reiley's and picked it up yesterday. Even though this atf doesn't meet Ford's LV spec (M1 hasn't sought approval) it performs very well in my trans.

    Henry Golden Boy Evaluation

    I was asked to eval my new Henry Golden Boy 22 Mag. It took a few rounds to sight it in at 50 yards. For iron sights it is shooting fairly close patterns, at least for my abilities. The Henry pulls up very comfortably and on target. The action is the best I have ever seen. Very smooth. Solid...

    Easier starting PW with new plug

    My power washer is about 8 years old and It has always been hard starting. So yesterday I replaced the Champion plug(it looked fine and the gap was correct) with a NGK plug and the machine is way easier starting than it has been since new.

    Replaced brakes on son's 2008 Ford Ranger

    Thursday I did all the work on my son's Ranger. This was on the front so I replaced the rotor- bearing hub and bearings and installed new ceramic pads. I'm 75 so this kind of work is a little harder on me now than years ago, but self fulfilling none the less. My son has a very bad back(disabled)...

    I changed my sons oil yesterday and discovered the drain plug head was partially rounded over from where the last OC place changed his oil. I tried using a 6 point socket, chisel and nothing worked. My last option was to weld a nut on the end of the DP and that did the trick. This was on his...
