    I suspect it has more to-do with a desire to employ people who display integrity, honor, and truthfulness.

    Some interesting recent posts, the last one I believe to be the most significant, admitting lying about election machines and the company. Stunning Report Says Capitol Mob Who Wanted to Hang Pence Was ONE MINUTE AWAY From Finding Him Fox News Seems Far Angrier With Jake Tapper Than the...

    Leaky clutch master cylinder

    Got a dime? JB Weld it in-place of the cracked window. Visit your friendly jewelry store, the old-fashioned one, where they do watch repair. Buy a sapphire watch crystal from them. Something about 18mm should fit. Same JB Weld treatment. You can find vendors on ebay for any-of this stuff, but...

    Leaky clutch master cylinder

    What year is it? It's probably the rear seal, the one closest-to the lever. The "I've got no $" fix is a rebuild kit, available from Yamaha, or an aftermarket kit from someone like K&L, either online or possibly the local bike shop, probably needing to be ordered. A question: is it leaking off...

    How MUCH?!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Got any gun-camera footage? I just read this book, filled-with "reminiscing of an old Naval fighter aviator": Feet Wet by Paul Gillcrist, Rear Admiral, USN (Ret.) goes from the early days of jets in military aviation, to days/nights of the 'flying brick,' F4; the A-6 and the F-8, he said a...

    How MUCH?!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I didn't own a Triumph Cub, but from reading about them, they were a very-popular UK ride. Alf Hagon, a legend in all-sorts of motorcycle competition., competed on them early in his career, and the Hagon business still sells parts for them. I once bought a TR25W 250cc Triumph from a co-worker...

    Blaming a piece of machinery? C'mon man! Sure we know that GIGO. I think I'll just trust these guys to 'do the right thing': The Joint Chiefs of Staff, the group of the most senior uniformed leaders at the Pentagon, issued a force-wide statement Tuesday condemning the riot at the Capitol as...

    Driveshaft woes

    Nah, probably nothing wrong other than the splines aren't properly-engaged. Just remove the rear end w/the driveshaft attached, and try, try again. See that plug in the driveshaft housing by the engine? You can pop that out, and use that as a place to view your effort to insert the splines...

    Winter Projects

    Looks like a Bell Iroquois to me. Two blades above a box. desert_max, Im gonna disagree with your 'clunkers' label on the economy cars. For one, they were inexpensive, very simple to repair, and they didn't need much, as they were understressed. I had a '63 Corvair Monza Spyder, all Spyders...

    Thank god Joe Biden owns a Corvette, a C-2 convertible. Now, he'll never get to drive it, as POTUS. He commented on that as the V-POTUS, the Secret Service wouldn't allow him to drive it.

    A Scamp? I think the nickname for the Slant Six was 'Tower of Power.' There was a version equipped with a 4 bbl carburetor. Same thing for the Poncho 250 cu.in. inline-6 SOHC, the H.O. version available in the Firebird sported a Rochester 4-bbl. It probably was available in the LeMans too...

    What did you do to your Vmax today? Part 2

    Nah, he might pull you over to see about insurance, tag, and D/L but if he can't clock you, about the only thing he might nab you for, is "exhibition of speed," if you burned-rubber that he saw, or popped a wheelie. Here in Florida, wheelies are expensive, if you're convicted. $1,000 first...

    In Michigan, we called those, "salt cars" or "hunting cars." One of my high school classmates had a beautiful '68 Dart 340, brand-new. His family operated a Dodge dealership in a relatively rural area outside a couple of cities (SW MI). His "salt car" was an early '60's Plymouth Valiant, the...

    What did you do to your Vmax today? Part 2

    Remember he built that a dozen years before the Gen. II was marketed. I suspect he built it for durability and overall performance. Anyone can make a "hand-grenade," just run the supercharger or turbocharger boost high, without modifying the fuel delivery and cooling systems to handle the...

    Estimated weight reduction

    Pretty-sure that the RC Engineering wheels were heavier than stock. I posted weights of commonly-removed items in a prior thread.
