Meanwhile, an update on Marty. Is the hair getting DANGEROUSLY long? Are dreadlocks in your future?

Re: Trouble With the Car You're Still driving?

How have they failed? They don't last long until they break. Amazing the seeming stress level, though I assume the pedal wobbles about in a manner unintended anymore and that helps them break. The new clip will help hold it in place some, we'll see how much difference it makes. In fact, while all t...

Re: Trouble With the Car You're Still driving?

Look at the delivery dates on the part you put up there. Mine comes next week, supposedly. I'd have paid twice that to have Dr. Who show up in his Tardis with it maybe before the factory part broke. It's on eBay for $12 with shipping but you never know how often they come through with their promised...

Re: Trouble With the Car You're Still driving?

Oh,my very first thought was how easily I could make it if only I hd the facility to put it together in. I've used mills and lathes, great stuff. So tempting to buy the cheap stuff at Harbor Freight or Northern Tools or whomever, but I don't have a regular use. I wanted to make that concrete mill wh...

Re: Trouble With the Car You're Still driving?

Ah, light at the end of the tunnel. The video explains the problem and shows the part I need. Of course I have to order it and wait, but at least it'll come SOMEDAY. The pedal assembly still seems wobbly.

Re: Trouble With the Car You're Still driving?

I wish I could find something conclusive on what it's supposed to be like under there. I see in the picture "Remove me or I will break." I think I have that piece broken so it lets the pedal come out too far, perhaps that's what is making the problem unsolvable. Or it's just another symptom. The fir...

Re: MUSIC thread

They have the bass player Carol Kaye in the 'Wrecking Crew' documentary, she's making a comment about finding the right harmony, counterpoint beat, whatever, it makes it more interesting. Something for you to give some thought to.

What some of this reminds me of:

Re: Vespa style electric scooter

When you say "Vespa style scooter," I assume you're referring to a type that often has the GY6 engine/drivetrain. In the picture you see to the left the pads of the drum brake and the rear spindle that the wheel goes on. You need to retain that physical structure OR devise something else for the rea...

Re: MUSIC thread

You probably knew the Monkees didn't play on their first album. But did you know the Beach Boys didn't play on 'Pet Sounds?'

So if you ever wonder who did, in fact on several hundred number one singles,etc. . . .

Wait a minute, WHICH 205? If your motor draws too hard on the controller it'll turn ugly real quick. People used to like Greentime, recently some have said they went downhill. I'd like something close to 200amps sensorless for some 18 of those melons I've got laying around, but are they up to it any...
