quad surgery

The ol' ATV has been leaking gas and simply stopping when there is still gas in the tank.  "Off" does not turn off the gas flow and "Reserve" does not allow enough gas to keep it running, but gas flows enough to overflow the carb and leak out when stopped.  Removed the tank and the carb.  Carburetor and petcock on the tank are beyond repair or rebuild.  New replacements coming next week.  90,99,67, .08",B

shell off?

Been spending quite a bit of time on  (today's photos from the airforums website)  One of the things I did not know before I jumped into this project is that in order to correctly repair the frame and replace the floor, the shell needs to be removed.  That being said...I am contemplating building a gantry which seems to be the preferred method of doing a shell off.  Once the shell is removed and placed on a secure surface, the gantry can be used to lift the frame to gain access to both sides for repairs and painting.  Still not totally committed to this project but I'm thinking even with the extent of repairs needed - this will be much faster to refurbish than the greenhouse was to build.  86,99,74,0,B

Black Peacock

Got gifted a bottle of genuine Black Peacock BBQ Sauce (his brand new secret blend) from my buddy Jon Peacock.  Two thumbs up for what it does to grilled chicken!  93,103,73,0,B
