.... and measured my wife's oven..

Call some of the local appliance stores about getting a stove that has been traded in for nothing. 

The hardware store here sells appliances and I got a stove/oven that they got in and were going to have to haul to the dump for nothing to use for powder coating.  I put a plug on it that works with my one long welding extension cord and take that out to the stove along the shop when it is needed.

There was nothing wrong with the stove other than if was old and they weren't going to try and sell it,

That is why you ran it....to see all of the things that needed to be worked on  :-D :-D, so the test-and-tune was a success for you and probably everyone else that ran  :-).

Thanks for helping out Shawn and taking the time to send the Trailblazer motor back with him for the lakester  :cheers:,

Well we welcome the extra day---after hearing about the rain we --started putting in some more weight---we will buy the cooling water in Wendover Nv and so we put in 160 pounds in the car so we will trailer the same weight and we are putting in mounting brackets for 190# more that we can install if we need to.

 :-o What oh what ---the last 36 hours  Thrashed and got the car and the trailer loaded and out the door at 4:30 PM---  pulled into the Motel 500 miles later in Cedar City at 2:30 in the AM

Woke up at 8:12 Am ---jumped in the shower and woke Andy at 8:30 AM---he did most of the driving last night--he is 19 years younger than me after all--- As we are going out to the Burb---got a call from Sum--they pulled the plug on the meet because they could NOT pull the drain plug on the flooded lake--- as we are pulling back on I-15 S he came off with the best line of the trip:

The next time we do an overnight road trip let's pack a little lighter! :cheers:

This is what makes those who are addicted to LSR so appreciate when we have limited success and cherish the friendships that are made and renewed when there are MEETS---we are promise nothing but an opportunity SOMETIMES!!

Thanks to the SCTA for all you do and to ALL of the volunteers !!!!!!!!!!!

We backed the trailer into the shop---unloaded the boxes into 2 areas  in one they are stacked and we should be able to leave unopened hoping that WF will "MAKE" the others we opened so we can get to grinders wrenches, drills, hand tools and such

We have some more minor refinements  to make to the trailer.  These refinements are weight and balance trying to get the trailer to ride better---pulls fine---it is just "surging".

I got the wheels re-boxed for shipping to Podunk aka Mourer Machine Co for final fitment-- so that the wheels and tires will be happy with each other!---The only mistake made was by me acting on information supplied by others not by Mourer Machine---he almost begged me not to make them to my information-well I am out several hundred $$ in freight for not listening to him!!!  ----but I am willing to bet they will mount up when we do them the way he wanted to!!!!!!!!!
