Re: Any M1 garand experts here ?

Always amazed me how proud he Filipinos were of their 1917s. Even longer than an M1 by a couple of inches though the weight is probably the same.

They did themselves proud.

Re: UDF is real!

My issue is people getting in your face asking questions. I did not mind before Covd though I am not what you call social. Now, amazed at how they don't get it (I target shoot and its the same thing). I back off, pretend I can't hear (often true with helmet and plugs) etc. Happy to go back to previo...

Re: The Ultimate snow-Ural

I did a lot of hunting off a 4 wheeler. Great machines but the tracks would have been a huge help in the mud holes (all to many) - of course my brothers supplied the 4 Wheeler(s) (I did the mechanizing) I hated the thumb throttle though. If a dirt bike can have a grip throttle, why not grip throttle...

Re: Ural in Canadian Press

Nice write-up .

I note that the rig is very level and the lean out looks to be 2+ deg!

Re: Covd Vaccine Shot One Done

My brothers wife son got it. Same thing, a gathering, fairly responsible but a gathering. I try to work with data (technician/engineer thing) and that data looks awfully good. Of course I come from that polio generation and still remember the movies of the kids in iron lung and the March of Dimes. I...

Re: Cruising through winter

I squeezed a ride in before Winter Storm Gail gifted us with ~10" of heavyish snowfall. I am getting out on 20+ days. My one run is off as they max out with some kind of melt stuff at the store parking lot. Go Gravel! Left Front Quarter View.jpg The YS624 dates back to 1998 and is still going gangb...

Re: Covd Vaccine Shot One Done

Good for you, glad the side effects are limited. Here in Ohio the over 65 crowd I'm in won't be eligible until sometime in February, I'm thinking March or April for me, I intend to get one but not going to fight crowds to get to the front of the line. I'm anti social by nature so social distancing ...

Re: new member from the old world

Love the Deutz. Back in the day I worked for a Credit Union that had a branch in the Philippines at Clark Air base (long story, won't bore) I got dispatched out there to deal with a bunch of accumulated back up power related problems. As near as I could figure, that Deutz Generator had something bet...

Covd Vaccine Shot One Done

I don't want to have this turned into a debate, if you don't believe in vaccines just ignore. I am not trying to convince anyone, just pass on information to those who want to or are thinking about it. Our local School Nurses of all people put on a group vaccination. Like most if not all systems the...

Re: Battery makes

Sorry guys, no such thing as a dry cell. Even D cell have a paste.

What you are referring to is known as a Valve Regulated Battery (VLRB) - when you smell one that blows trust me, you know you have some liquid in there.

Re: Low Battery Light

I've seen such design on fifties or sixties cars. There were no relays to break and barely any cables in those cars. Not as crazy as the guy in other thread considering conversion to Harley suicide clutch pedal. It goes back further than that but I have operated foot pedal starters. Like a foot ope...

Re: Low Battery Light

Write it down or at least write down where to find it.I wouldn't count on that vault too much. I used to have a memory like a steel trap - once something got in it didn't get out.I'm 69 now and the memory is starting to resemble a steel sieve!Except for a few things I'd like to forget of course - t...

Re: Choosing routes for Urals

2019 has no limits. Its just what works. Haines AK to Anchorage as I was talking to the son I inherited (he insists I am a dad, but he has not mowed my lawn so until he does....) its not a limited choice, its one choice if you are lucky! Good news for AK? They are ALL good choices. Stateside, I took...
