You can have my spot on the "Gold Coast". The UP isn't bad, but no desire to visit anywhere else in Michigan. This time of the year wouldn't that be the "Ice-Gold Coast"? :)
Next thing you know they'll be putting Detroit in the top spot on the "It Really Isn't As Bad As It Looks" list." :)
Have you been to Detroit? Downtown Detroit is booming, lot of things to do and see there. The Detroit Institute of Arts is a real treasure. The Detroit Opera House and Fox Theater are beautiful historic venues. The Lions, Tigers and Red Wings all play in downtown. I've been to them all and am not at all afraid to be there and not just daytime. Most hockey games are at night. Casinos, restaurants and bars are all doing a booming business. A lot of events along the river front in the summer. The North American International Auto Show.
I don't live in Detroit and I'll be the first to admit it has some serious problems. The city is in bankruptcy, the neighborhoods are a disgrace and a dangerous place to be. Crime in the neighborhoods is out of control. But that's all you hear. What about Chicago? How many of you would be willing to walk around in the neighborhoods there? But it's a great downtown to visit and that's what you hear. There is not one major city in the country that doesn't have a dark side most of us would not want to see. The media has a fascination with showing everything bad about Detroit and there's plenty to show but they have no interest in showing anything positive.
I would definitely not think of OH and Toronto together, since my wife was born in Toronto, Ontario. Traveled in OH quite a bit for work, mostly the 3 C's, Findley and Sylvania but never heard of Toronto. Of course a lot of that was emergency trips and planes were involved. I do know they like the name Sandusky. Sandusky, Upper Sandusky, Lower Sandusky and maybe some more.
It's too bad they can't have a playoff for the national championship, but they are college students and school is supposed to come first.
Mobile 1 from Costco, I wait until they have a $10 manufacturer rebate on a case. I only use WIX filters on everything, MH, 3 cars, zero turn mower and tractor. O'Reilly's and AutoValue carry them. NAPA Gold filters are made by WIX so there's another source. I don't put a lot of miles on the MH in a year but the engine runs a little cooler and MPG is a little better with synthetic oil. If you don't want to throw all that good synthetic oil away after year, change the filter and add a quart.
Geez Hank Mi, I was referring to Hank Bullough who is pretty well known at Michigan State. He graduated from Timken High in CANTON, OHIO and I believe his grandson played a fine game on Saturday night.
Sorry if I hurt your feelings .... End of conversation.
Sorry Bags for high jacking the thread.
As I said, I apologize. Canton OH just didn't come to mind and I took it the wrong way, sorry.
Heck Hank, I thought jimjr was paying you a big compliment! Obviously, someone with the same name you have was one heck of a football player at Timken H.S. in Canton, Ohio! Bags.
If so I apologize. Being born and raised in MI I was thinking Canton, MI, a suburb of Detroit, don't know what the high school names are there. Of course I've heard of Canton, OH but it wasn't the first thing that popped into my head.
Hank, I read so many sites on Ohio State that it gets to be a bit ridiculous! Consequently, I'm much more knowledgeable about the "Buckeyes" than I am about the other BIG 10 teams. If you want to add your opinion about the "Wolverines" or "Spartans" moving forward, I would love to hear it! Unfortunately, I'm only capable on focusing my attention on one team. Anyway, please feel free to add any comments about the BIG 10 teams from Michigan and that goes for any other member who supports some other BIG 10 team. Bags.
It was just a comment Bags, maybe they'll all 3 be better, maybe not. I have no idea but I hope they all get better because it makes for better gsmes to watch. Being from Michigan I'm a U of M and MSU fan but I don't get too emotionally involved. It's a sport and it's entertainment, but winning or losing is not going to change my life one bit. So I'm not going to sit here and disrespect OSU because they lost to MSU, they're both good teams and should be proud.
I wonder if Hank MI graduated from Timken High in Canton. If so, you have had a great career in football and I salute you.
I guess because you're from OH and I'm from MI that was supposed to be some kind of dig at me. Why? What have I said to deserve that? This is why I don't get emotionally involved. Talking sports is like trying to discuss politics or religion with some people, never going to be a good outcome.
I use a Craftsman.. from Sears.. also good for engine coolant and looking for engine misses.. a cool exhaust port is cylinder is not firing.
if checking tire temp.. also check wheel hub temp. ..bad brake or wheel bearing.
and maybe 60 seconds to do all of them.
Think it was this past weekend Sears ad had them on sale for around $30. No Sears close to us or I would have picked one up.
I've encountered the same thing with mine when the engine battery was low. If your steps are like mine the clicking you hear is a bi-metal thermal switch inside the motor. The motor is a car power window motor. The thermal switch is used to cut power when the steps reach the fully extended or retracted position. Too much current and the switch opens, the controller senses no current flow and it cuts power to the motor. Only takes a second or so for switch to cool and close then the steps can be operated in the opposite direction.
Your diagnosis is pretty accurate. The low voltage from the battery causes the motor to draw too much current and opens the thermal switch.
T Mobile offers this service as WELL as WIFI calling at no additional charge. You simply turn on the mobile hot spot service and the device you're wanting to use with the phone scans for available WIFI and you just sign on with your password. With WIFI calling, you just turn on WIFI and select allow WIFI calling and with some phones also select WIFI as the default calling method.
That very much depends on your TMobile Plan. I do not get free Wifi calling - it uses my minutes and I am not on an unlimited minutes plan - and if I tether through TMobile they want $15 a month.
The latest T-Mobile plans include tethering, no charge, regardless of how many gigabytes you signed up for. We do not have an annual contract. It's cheaper to go no contract. Contract plan, you're paying for a new phone even if you don't upgrade. No contract, you pay for the phone when you upgrade. I ran all the numbers, no contract is cheaper even when you do upgrade your phone.
Wifi calling was always free for us, when we had a contract and now with no contract. We've never had unlimited minutes. Don't see how they can charge you for not using their networks. Not sure how they could even tell when you're Wifi calling since you're disconnected from their network when Wifi calling is on.
Hard to tell from those pics. Does either set have removable caps for adding water? House batteries are probably 6v batteries and would have 3 removable caps on each one.
Looking at the pic again it looks like both sets are wired in parallel, meaning both sets would be 12v batteries. Turn off one set and meter the other side of the large solenoid they're wired to, on the right side of the batteries.
I suspect the bottom set are the chassis batteries. There are 2 large cables off the positive post, one to the solenoid on the right and one probably to the engine starter. They don't run the starter power through the solenoid.
...Then almost certainly, you have an aluminum structure of wall studs and supports. Even though aluminum isn't a good conductive metal - the wiring for your rig and the AC creates a electrically grounded 'box'.
Aluminum is a great conductor of electricity. Used in most power company transmission lines. No longer allowed for home because it corrodes at the connections, causing hot spots and potentially a fire.
I use the tethering built in to our T-Mobile phones, don't need any apps, works good. WiFi sharing will run down the phone battery quickly. If you can use a UBS cable between PC and phone you can turn off WiFi on both and both batteries will last longer.
Just a test
I think it's working, picture is in a photo album on another forum. Viewed it from my wife's laptop, not signed into either forum.
Installed a mount for a flat screen TV. Old tube TV went to the Salvation Army on the weekend.
Curious Hank… was your TV built in the front cabinets ?
If so do you have any photos of your remodel ?
I have been debating but unsure how it will look..
TV was mounted in cabinet in center above dash/doghouse, up at the ceiling. That was too high for comfortable viewing, you were always looking up. I wanted a mount that would come down not just side to side. Found one on Amazon but when I went back to order it was no longer available. I keep kicking myself over that. So I used a wall mount fastened to the bottom of the cabinet, turned 90* so it will come down instead of side to side. I can swivel the TV 90* lift it up and push it back into the cabinet for travel.
I don't have picture but can take one of the mount later today. TV is not attached right now, it's in the house. Think you'll get the idea though when you see the mount and how it's installed.
Guess I'll have to figure out how to post an image, haven't done that on this forum before.
First pic is mount dropped down so TV is at a better viewing level.
Second pic is how mount is installed in cabinet.
The TV will swing up and sit flat against front of cabinet. In order for the mount to hold the TV there the tension on the arms has to be really tightened up since mount is designed for side to side movement not up and down. With the tension that high you really have to pull on the TV to move it, I didn't like that idea. So I decided I would just swivel TV 90* and swing it back into the cabinet to get it out of the way or for travel. I may look at adding a strap or something to mounting plate to hold TV up when traveling or maybe I won't.
Having been a GM Master Tech, all of the above reply's are good, and I would consider checking each one, BUT, there is another possibility. Some of the Mark IV engines had their timing marks below the harmonic balancer @ a 6 o'clock position, if you were to imagine the harmonic balancer as a clock face. If the installed engine is a crate motor, the timing tab may be incorrect for you're application, or the installer may have overlooked swapping the tab to it's proper position.
He did mention crawling underneath to set the timing so I assume the tab is down in the 4 - 5 o'clock position and he's using number 5 cylinder. If he can set the timing at 16 with no ping that would be great. I would switch to mid-grade or premium gas if needed to get the timing up there. The increase in performance and timing will more than offset the increase in gas.
You can get a rebuild kit for the advance mechanism at just about any auto parts store. It should come with 3 sets of springs for the weights, light, medium, heavy. You want to go heavy enough so you have no mechanical advance at idle but not too heavy. You want all the mechanical advance in by 2500 rpm. Install the heavy set of springs so you know you have no mechanical advance at idle. Then drop down to medium, if the timing jumped up then that's too light. If it didn't then drop down to light. You can mix the springs, 1 light and 1 medium or 1 medium and 1 heavy. It takes some trial and error but it's worth it. Use the combination that gives no mechanical advance at idle, full advance by 2500.
Bottom line, 4* is no good. It will run like a dog and run hot.
Bags, I was referring to what has been said here. What's being said out there, I don't know and don't care. Wouldn't take long to find a lot of trash talk about U of M, MSU or any other team with a prominent program. Ignore it and move on. People get so wrapped up in their team that they go crazy. I for one have a lot of respect for OSU, 2 seasons without a loss in the Big 10, they earned it. Still don't want them to win this week but that doesn't mean I don't respect the team and what they've done.
We have AT&T Uverse for TV and internet which uses the old phone lines, we don't have a land line though. We do have a VOIP/internet phone from T-Mobile. We've had it for several years and it works great. Since our internet is over the phone lines the phone still works even during a power outage.
Well, it looks like we'll have an interesting discussion again next Saturday after the MSU/OSU game. Perhaps if Ohio State beats MSU decisively, the fans from That Team Up North, will give the "Buckeyes' their just due. After all, OSU has beaten TTUN 11 of the last 13 meetings! Bags.
Easy now, nobody said anything bad about OSU. They obviously have a great team. Doesn't mean Michigan didn't play a good game and it sure doesn't mean I don't want MSU to beat them. I don't really think they will but I hope they do.
