    Dealer honesty?

    When it comes to lawn tractors & mowers, John Deere isn't a brand- it's a religion. Once you understand that, everything else falls into place. As far as outdoor power equipment dealers go, you will find ill-informed(and sometimes, just plain dishonest) employees are all too common at any of...

    The thrill is gone: B.B. King passes

    I hadn't heard- a very sad day for anyone who likes the blues. He was one of the all-time greats, and always seemed to be a genuinely good & kind man. Who will bring Lucille to life now? <img src="/forums/graemlins/34.gif" alt="USA" title="USA" height="28" width="32" />

    Oil recommendation for a 1965 Volvo 122S.

    Yup, that was my standard answer. "Nope, Columbo drove a Peugot. This is a Volvo." Spread out over 20+ years of ownership- Probably a thousand times! <img src="/forums/graemlins/crazy2.gif" alt="crzy" title="crzy" height="15" width="15" />

    Oil recommendation for a 1965 Volvo 122S.

    I forgot to mention- given road salt, or just a little mud packed in from driving on wet/damp dirt roads(*much* more common in the 1960's thru mid 70s in central OK), places to watch for rust arejust under the headlights, & at the very top rear of the front fenders. Keep it out of road salt, &...

    Larry, you're a good man & a fine nephew. <img src="/forums/graemlins/thumbsup2.gif" alt="thumbsup" title="thumbsup" height="18" width="25" /> Those of you who trust in GPS- please don't. A clear, easily read address, along with attention-getting reflectors or tape, can be a lifesaver when...

    I'm becoming a double edged razor hoarder!

    Except for worn plating, virtually all the grungy looking stuff on old DE razors is soap scum. Remember, these things often served for decades , usually with no more care than a rinse & shake. My procedure became: get "new" razor; soak in hot tap water; foam it up with Scrubbing Bubbles, wait...

    GAME: Name the Uses if this item! (Real Uses)

    It's very good grease, BUT: When it finally gets way *too* hot, it turns to something that looks like an opaque, dull red silicone rubber. Don't ask how I'm so sure about this. <img src="/forums/graemlins/shocked.gif" alt="shocked" title="shocked" height="15" width="15" />
