    "Run of the mill" would be great, William!

    It took a lot to run a mill.

    T-Bone knows his manifolds, Folks!

    Did a '40 OHV for him last week.

    That's great info, Chris!

    But why should they need a sealer?

    Insulation?

    Why didn't they go back, when it was surplus?

    NCRiding!

    Its obvious from the copper bowl cap, bare pivot screws, and smooth-textured (with pimples) bowl, its got repop disease.

    So a poor fit is to be expected.

    Is there lead in propane, Steve?

    Tetra-ethyl lead was added to gasoline for one reason: Octane.

    The early 1980s 'unleaded kit' fad was at least 97% sales pitch.

    The three arrows point to beads, Steve!

    Trapped in the idle bleeds of a Linkert.

    Note they are different sizes, and the big one fits a .052" hole.

    No wonder it needed fixed.

    I have four cabinets with four different media, and there's still always a lot of prep and detailing afterward.
