One of those phrases I've always heard, but never actually put to paper.

Thank you, Comma Cop!

No, nothing as sweet as that, but I am angling to get these guys to stop by in April for a photo shoot . . .

Mike, climb out of the box.... those would be eaten on a flour tortilla, which would be a lot like a pizza crust, but even if you used a taco shell it would require mustard  :-D

Seriously, though - the tacos were really good.

Hey guys,

Kaiser's Pizza and Pub, Gurnee, IL

https://www.facebook.com/Kaisers-Pizza-Pub-Gurnee-117522088265992/

Daily food and drink specials.    They are deservedly, very highly rated on Yelp, Facebook, Travel Zoo, etc.    Because the food is GOOD.    We eat there every Wednesday lunch, 'cause it's dollar Taco Wednesday.   Fermented libation selection is limited, but at lunch time I'm downing Dr. Pepper anyway.   According to the midget, best patty melt he's ever had.   And the Tacos are outstanding at the regular price.   Hell, Mrs. Fordboy even likes the place.

If any of you gentlemen ever get to Gurnee, I'll buy lunch . . . . .  especialy if it's dollar Taco Wednesday . . . . .  :roll:    Bonus eats for off continent visitors and Utah residents . . . . .


OR,

The adventurous among you might consider a foray north of the "cheddar curtain" to Clifford's Supper Club, Hales Corners, Wi

https://www.facebook.com/Cliffords-Supper-Club-115764171779833/

The Friday Fish Fry is beyond belief, AND, ALL YOU CAN EAT! ! !   Again, somewhat limited fermented libations, but WTH, it's about a nice piece of fish . . . . . . .
And since it's in Hales Corners, Mrs. midget might make an appearance . . . . .

Take your pick.

There are more choices though.   Both Chicago and Milwaukee are serious food destinations.    And if we venture to Madison, Wi . . . . . . . .    

 :cheers: :cheers: :cheers:

After all this waxing eloquent about pubs in the region, I would be remiss not to mention the current climate conditions for you over-enthusiastic would be visitors lining up to buy your plane tickets or jumping into your vehicles:

It's so cold this morning, I farted snowflakes . . . . . .

And now, we return you to our regular programming . . . . . .

midget,

Did a little research on racing alternators this am.    For a Powermaster 100 amp racing setup:

A/   Just the alternator is ~ $380, NO driven pulley
2/   Driven pulley/Drive pulley combo, in HTD    ? ? ?
d/   generic high mount Bracket kit  $310-$410
z/   + fabrication time to mount   ? ? ?

And there is not a lot of extra space in front of the engine for driving accessories . . . . and may require a longer front crank bolt, for which there is limited or NO room . . . . . .

Since this looks like it will easily tear up a $1000 bill, and a batch of fabrication time, I'm thinking the 16v battery and associated hardware is looking like the way to go.

Your thoughts?

 :cheers:
