Ok lol. I find that interesting.because it's just who I am
I'd be so much money ahead if I entertained myself with videogames and lived in the cities in some rental arrangement right next to work
but what you earn you've gotta spend, and they tax you several times along the way, so... Much more interesting to spend an hour cleaning up a 30 dollar MLS gasket for reuse than spending the hour and a half at work it'd take to buy one after shipping and such. Besides, I wanna be driving tomorrow and not in a week.
the black silicone topcoat wire wheels off really easy and leaves nice shiny stainless
the zinc cold-galvanizing paint that I used to seal it up last time does not come off nearly as easily, means it's strong haha
You remind me of all the cool elderly folk who made stuff themselves from stuff they had on the farm. If a part broke you made a copy or found/made something that would work instead. Growing up in the depression era they learned to do with what they had so theres a lot of pretty interesting home engineering out there.
So are you honing and re-ringing that piston then or swapping in a new one?
Also curious to see what the inside looks like once its opened up since youve been running your fuel for quite a while now
