  1. Congrats on the birth of your son. Sounds like all are well and doing fine. Besides being a father don't forget to also be his best friend. Something a lot of parents overlook and then wonder why their kids don't talk to them.
  2. +1 with Omie01. I used TMI and the seats turned out nice. You want a good foam that will hold up and is comfortable. For what the upholsterers are going to charge you to do them the last thing you want to do is use cheap foam that will degrade over a short time and then have to have them redone again.
  3. Welcome from Ohio. As mentioned above post some pictures and also what part of the world are you in?
  4. Welcome from Ohio. Congrats on your buy. As mentioned above we love pictures. Post some when you can.
  5. I don't think it really matters. The main thing is that they fit tight and will not come out. I ran into the same thing and used the larger ones under the carpet since they set flatter and went with the smaller ones in the trunk.
  6. We made it home yesterday after being on the road for the past 3 weeks and over 4000 miles. As I stated when I started this trip our destination was Yellowstone. Before I list the places in the picture’s I would like to say that this has been by far one of the best vacations we have taken. I have been out west once before about 50 years ago and I had forgotten just how beautiful that part of our country is. I'm glad we got to see so many wonderful things. First stop – Dubuque Iowa - Stayed 3 nights National Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium Felon Place Elevator Company Also went to the Field of Dream movie site and visited the Crystal Lake Cave Second stop – Sioux Falls, South Dakota - Stayed 2 nights Falls Park Also visited the USS South Dakota Battleship Memorial Third Stop – Rapid City, South Dakota - Stayed 6 nights Custer State Park The Bad Lands Delta 09 Minuteman Missile site Also visited Mt Rushmore, Crazy Horse, a Prairie Homestead, Fort Hays – part of the movie set for Dances with Wolves, 1880 Train & Depot - took train ride, and the Big Thunder gold mine. Also visited several other local attractions and had a severe thunderstorm with hail. Fourth Stop – Cody Wyoming - Yellowstone Stayed 5 nights Old Faithful Midway Geyser Basin Visited the main attractions of the park. Left out the North East entrance to return to Cody and took one of the most beautiful scenic routes back. Also visited Buffalo Bill State Park and Dam. PLUS GOT A SURPRISE BONUS IN CODY! Unfortunately there wasn't any 71-73's there. Cheyenne Wyoming- Stayed 2 nights - visited the Frontier Days Museum along with a couple of other local attractions. Mighty Big Boy We really had a great trip but as always it's good to be back home.
  7. I keep the people at Social Security and Medicare employed.
  8. No - that makes a whine. I would lean more toward a loose wiggly pin in the wobbly shaft.
  9. This is what the weather is like where we are at as of a couple of hours ago. Hail.mp4
  10. I was stationed at Camp Evans in Vietnam. The terrain of the base was hilly and our company sat in a low area with the base perimeter next to it. Our latrine sat down at the bottom of a slope at the lowest part of our company area and right next to the base perimeter. Our latrines were not the best smelling during the hot summer. I had to go take care of business one night and was on my way to the latrine when I ran into some tear gas that someone had decided to set off while on guard duty out on the perimeter. One thing you have to remember is that the army is made up of young men between the ages of 18 to early 20's who still like to be boys from time to time. Needing to go but unable to continue on due to my eyes tearing up and my nose running I went back to my hooch to got my gas mask so I could go back to the latrine and take care of the much needed business. Ahhh - mission accomplished! As I headed back up the slope to my hooch with my mask on yet I ran in to our company's Master Sergeant who was coming down. Seeing me with my mask on he stopped dead in his tracks and said if the latrine smell that dam bad he would find another place to go. Before I could say anything he headed off in another direction. Don't know where he went that night but hope he just needed to whiz.
  11. I also had a similar sound years ago but it was the bearing on the alternator. As you stated you have nothing external connected. I would get a magnetic pick up tool and remove the inspection plate and pock it around and see if you pick up any metal shavings. If non then I would remove the starter and inspect and check for any filings there. As mentioned in the post above you should be able to narrow it down to at least where in the engine it's coming from. Good luck and I hope it's an easy fix for you.
  12. Still no winners. I will list all the places we visited once we get back home. Here are some pictures from our current location. Still in the same state that the last pictures were taken - just at the opposite end.
