So the idea was to use the outdoors as a free refrigerator, but to have control over it. My house and therefore the tank will be 70*. Out of doors will vary from 50* to -10*. My idea was to run a pump and plumb in a radiator. Pump tank water through a pipe, out of doors into an outdoor radiator, and then back through a pipe indoors and dump back into tank. Round and round we go.


If you use anti-freeze instead of water the temperature will remain more consistent. :)

But I'm a lot less stupid now. Thanks to all y'all =)


Guess I need to walk this back.

Turns out it was a swapped plug all along. The machine has almost identical plugs all around; I thought it'd be as easy as matching the scratches and gouges made from tool removal to match em back up. Nope. Swapped two plugs and it fired right up. $0.00.

Jesus Christ. At least the harness is like new after all my repairs =p
Be bold and risk defeat, or be cautious and encourage it.

Guess it pays to look up something. I didn't know I wasn't using nasal spray correctly, and wasn't getting the best bang for the spray. (btw, the picture is the incorrect way)

I'm just not sure why this guy doesn't have more subscribers with that opening.

Beautiful day for painting. Put up
some old furnace ducts for squirrel
baffles on my bird feeder poles.
Painted them camo green today.
At one point I was realizing for the
last 5 min I've been watching paint
dry. Literally. That's the high point
of my day. Sigh.

Never knew much about camo
before today, never owned any,
never thought about it. This
camo paint dried super flat
and dull. It absorbs light and
reflects none. It's not the color
of anything around it, it's green/
black/gray. But dang, the shiny
duct work disappeared. The camo
draws no attention to itself, your
eye passes over it like it wasn't there.

A guy in the paints comment
section says he painted his 10
year old truck this color and
gets compliments on it all the
time.

Guess what I'm doing today. These modern
mulch mowers are amzing, compared to
50 years ago. 200cc Briggs and Stratton,
started on the first pull after sitting
in the cold barn all winter. No matter how
tall the grass you can't stop the engine.

What I would have given as a kid for one.
The old mowers stopped if the grass was
4" high. Didn't want to start, always
fiddling with them. Every neighborhood
had a guy who fixed small engines and
appliances for a living in the 50's and 60's.
Not anymore.

I can't do this section with the Deere tractor,
the hill is too steep. I should have done this
a month ago, too much rain.

500cc?

Typo, 200cc. My first motorcycle
was a 175cc, and it was really
fast.
