    60 Gallon Compressor?

    I suspect it may be same/similar to the C-H 60 gal compressor I bought from Tractor Supply about a year ago. Not an issue to lay it down but some oil can leak as mentioned, depends on which side you lay it on I think. Mine was mounted on a wooden skid and I let it sit for a couple of days before...

    A Critic-Style Brake Job

    Just curious (I hope I didn't miss this in the write-up)did you bleed brake fluid out at all to replenish with fresh fluid? The stuff that sits inside the caliper pistons gets particularly nasty since it's on the front lines so to speak.

    Marvel Mystery Oil

    ^^what he said, especially about changing the raw water intake impeller. It's taken a set after all these years and is probably brittle enough to break when the engine is started. Then you get pieces of impeller into the cooling system. Also, before starting "prime" the cooling system with water...

    material needed to get MB paint flawless?

    I think RTF hit it on the head. When I bought my MB, the paint looked good yet had that scratchy feel. I also read up on the ceramic-based clearcoat before deciding what to do. The Menzerna products mentioned seem to be the most highly recommended. I used Griot's claybar lubed with Optimum...

    Stihl FS94R is almost the perfect trimmer

    IMO they make a great trimmer. I've got 2 FS 85's that I got free about 8 yrs ago as non-running. I put a new carb on one and a new coil/plug wire on the other and they've worked great ever since. If they ever give out I would spend the dough for a new one but at the rate they're going they may...

    Other than a possible malfunctioning oil pressure switch, do you have any other indicators that the engine is actually gummed up?

    What's my transmission doing?

    Clutch pack and/or band engagements are typically controlled by internal pistons also called accumulators or servos. Some clutch packs also have their own internal Pistons. All of these devices have rubber seals that can deteriorate over time heat and miles. Fluid is routed into the accumulator...

    Can't decide on which tire.

    Maybe look into Continental? I've been pleased with life/performance with them on 3 different vehicles.
