Yeah I think spare tanks look good on a rear rack.

dinky has let me down today, and its not its falt. this is how my moring went:
i was taknig the ford apart to pully swap it, made my mesurments, went to hop on dinky to go to tractor supply, they were still closed for half an hour
so i decieded to go to walmart and get paint
my drive belt shreaded by advanced auto
i ended up pushing dinky and hiding it behind a bush at the movie theator
then walking to tractor supply and get parts for the ford
the help part is i to tow dinky back wold take 2 poeple
one to drive the ford, and one to steer dinky
the alliterative is bring a rope and tape measure and measure up a belt for dinky, drive to tractor supply, go back to dinky, install the belt were its at, drive the ford home, walk to were dinky died, then drive that home.
i havent goten in to to much trouble by 9am.

it all worked out. and im temporraryly putting the carb from my 16hp cast iron on the 12hp cast iron, figured if it cut the muffler off it should about even the jetting out. but ym 16hp carb is quite diffren then the 12hp. so i only can use 1 bolt to hold it on and the governor is not going to be able to link up. so i think i putting a thumb throttle on my shiftier. i just want something to get me ruining half decent until my carb rebuild comes in the mail.

i tryed creating a new face book account and this sh-t is confusing as hell, and it wants my real name instead of an account name. i just made the last name youdontneedthat because i think thats alittle to personal for random poeple to just see.
