zephyrs of summer

Recommended Posts

A nice sandy beach on Lake Erie, just South of Monroe, expect the awful I-75 in Michigan --but with top down and 

pretty girl at my side...all is well. Anybody else here drive their V-12 this year??  ( and I couldn't resist  shade tree mechanic shot)

VERY nice Jeff - I unfortunately have been forced into re-employment for health care costs. 

However We will NOT miss  GILMORE .  Again we will drive the '41  300 miles to the meet.

JUST today fixed the dreaded "click-click" of rear hubs by retorquing  to 250 ft. lbs.

CAN'T  wait !!  This winter  total re-upholstery as the interior is shredding.

Nice JB I love it., I had to cancel Gilmore this year as I  had three damned eye surgery’s to fix a detached retina, not fun. I’ll be there next year with a Colombia installed.

Jeff - I used a torque wrench  that I    borrowed from  a retired  helicopter mechanic    4' long .

he is going to sell it to me as soon as he gets back up here. IT IS A DANDY

 This is the same guy who did my valves when I had to buy a new block.

That must be for what my helicopter mechanic brother called the Jesus nut. If it comes loose the main rotors take off on their own.

Very nice, is that a Waco Biplane??

Hi Jeff.  No, its a Stearman.  It lives here part time.  In the winter it relaxes in Palm Springs.
