          Good morning everyone. I hope all is well. Back close to 90° today but no wind at all right now. Been reading a ton on mechanical fuel injection and how to make it work on the street. I have always been curious about a Hilborn 8 stack or a hat with some pretty rubber lines on a tunnel ram.....Seems the barrel valve is the secret to everything.

                Just plain ole Thursday for me. At least until Sept first! Then every day is Saturday. Not totally sure Jodi is on board with my plan tho, with the ever escalating mortgage interest rates I may have to find some kind of gig? We cannot lock in mortgage loan until we have occupancy on new house and get out of construction loan. We are anticipating interest rate over 6 by then. Blew our retirement budget up a bit. Arghh

                  Just be careful. I almost had a date in January. ALl I had to do was sign the papers. But boy am I glad I didn't follow through with the economy the way it is.

                    Morning dreamers...yep it is another Saturday. My everyday though is usually busy doing something.
                    Thought I was going to get my first car show in this Saturday, but plans have changed.
                    I'd mentioned to a couple people I was looking to sell my John Deere zero turn since I'd bought the Grasshopper mower.
                    A guy I know called yesterday wanting to buy it. A hard two job working guy putting two daughters through college.
                    The only day he had free was Saturday afternoon. Ok if that's what it takes to move it, I'll do it.
                    Plus, since he and his wife are such good hard-working people, their girls such amazing young ladies, we gave him a great deal on the mower.

                              I dont remember mentioning the car show. Sunday. Was so hot and maybe 20 cars showed up. I do what i always do, pay for the car behind me as we enter the show. $5 is nothing. Some people bitch about having to pay,saying they spent so much on their car. They think the spectators should pay. Wrong. No spectators, no shows. And they spend money on food and drink.
                              Up here the $5 is to cover insurance and advertising for the most part.

                                OK totally confused now which 340 mount is the hard to find the small one or the larger one? Way to much conflicting info out there.

                                Ouch. We’ve gotten screwed on the same thing. But I saw this coming and built it into the budget. My plan is though when rates drop, being prepared refi but I’m also in the process of being debt free minus the wife’s new car by March. So by that token, it’s not gonna matter as much. Plus I fully expect a big recession in the looming months, that will likely change the interests rates backwards by 2024

                                  OK so the smaller one then? Thought that was the same as a 318. Of course nothing in the IPB on it.

                                  I may have it backwards. I know one of the mounts is the same as a 318/360, but the other is different

                                  Yup but which one Searches screw you up worse. bringing the loaner set to get measured for a tooling quote just want to do one that is hard to find.

                                    We were lucky and locked in last year at 2.9% when we bought this house...like using other people's money.
                                    We thought of just paying for the house since we got such a good deal and were sold the house that we owned and moved from.
                                    This house lady had it appraised two years earlier before housing took off and that was the price she wanted. Ok $150G below market now we'll take it.
                                    It needed a lot of work and we've put a lot of $$ into it but it's all for us...we don't plan on ever moving.
                                    My financial buddy convinced us to take a mortgage to do the upgrades we wanted and get the interest tax write off which was nice!!
