I can't in good faith call these cars. Built by George Barris for a bank promotion...

BigV 09-18-2018 08:21 PM

George Barris?

I think you mean JOHNNY CASH!



Yep, it's real.

I saw a RC ditch digger on the way home from work Friday.

In a similar vein...

OK Junior, that's enough TV for today, go out and dig a trench in the yard. :eyebrow:

OK Dad, you always said you'd fix my red wagon, change the oil and rotate the tires.

Looks like it's definitely become female, but I can't figure out if it's also become a fish??:confused:

Needed a place to put the rouge?

BigV 10-06-2018 11:08 AM

it looks like the goddamn seat to ride sidesaddle since there just a board where it used to be mounted.

captainhook455 10-06-2018 08:12 PM

It looks like it can be folded in or out. Mebbe to keep tall grass or bushes off the driver when bushhogging.

Gravdigr 10-07-2018 01:51 PM

Speaking of tractors...

In the movie Blazing Saddles, Slim Pickens' character, 'Taggart', tells the antagonist, the land-grabbing 'Hedley Lamarr', not to worry, "We'll make that town thing it's a chicken that got caught in a tractor's nuts."

What the fuck does that mean?

Gravdigr 10-18-2018 10:04 AM

Tractor's nuts?

Anyone?

Bueller?

I wonder if he can convince the judge it was the bird's fault?

A few years earlier, and that ostrich may well have outrun the pohlees.

With a field full of spare engines. ;)

Now, that's a drumstick.

Gravdigr 10-22-2018 01:20 PM

Wonder if it tastes like chicken?

Happy Monkey 10-22-2018 02:07 PM

Closer to steak, actually, but a bit gamier. Someone who eats more varieties of meat would probably have a better comparison. I used to get ostrich occasionally from Whole Foods.

Gravdigr 10-22-2018 03:02 PM

I forget which, but one of the groceries around here used to sell ostrich burgers. A little pricey, iirc. Never tried it.

Where else but SEMA will you see a 5ft high roller rocker with locking box wrench, adjusting allen wrench, and feeler gage?

Diaphone Jim 11-08-2018 11:40 AM

Hot rods :zzz:

BigV 11-08-2018 12:22 PM

I wonder what impels that roller to roll?

Why wouldn't it just stay in place?

Or if it did ever find or develop a flatter spot, why would it move off that spot?

Gravdigr 11-08-2018 01:51 PM

Flat spot:

You'd still have the roller 'axle' (acting like a hinge, for lack of a more eloquent description) which would still be better (less friction) than a regular rocker arm.

It doesn't 'roll' all the way round like the wheel it looks like, I don't think.

BigV 11-10-2018 11:06 AM

Ok Grav, I don't take issue with anything you said.

I still have questions about that mockup in the picture. I'm having a hard time understanding how that configuration of the adjusting screw and the locking nut can affect the valve lash/clearance. How can they adjust anything while at the fulcrum of the rocker? Is the WHOLE rocker being lifted or lowered? And wouldn't that simultaneously change the clearance on the pushrod side?

It looks ... I don't understand how it works. Here's a picture that has similar looking roller tip rockers but with the adjustment NOT at the fulcrum/pivot point, but closer to/over the pushrod end. THIS one I comprehend.

https://www.chevyhardcore.com/tech-s...sh-like-a-pro/

...

I read some more, I guess I did intuit it correctly, I just haven't worked on one myself. The whole rocker does lift, pushrod side and valve side. Huh.

Adjusting shaft mounted rockers, roller or not.

BigV 11-16-2018 03:13 PM

That looks familiar...

Except for the light and the clearance and the unabraded knuckles.

Imagine cranking this over by hand, even with the compression release and geared crank, better hope the motor wants to start. :rolleyes:

Imagine cranking it over by hand and having it kick back on ya. Geez.

If your old Tin Lizzie kicked back it might break your wrist, or bruise your forearm, make ya cry, maybe...this thing would put ya on the other side of the yard!

A Gargantuan Engine: “There Is Just No Substitute For Cubic Inches”
Remember the old catch phrase from the 60s/70s?

"There's no replacement for displacement."

BigV 12-20-2018 08:30 PM

I bet there is a ratcheting or clutch style mechanism that lets the thing freewheel when catches or backfires etc.

Gravdigr 12-20-2018 09:37 PM

The old fords and such ya slipped it toward the engine and there was a notch/key way (for lack of the proper damn word), and as ya cranked it over ya pulled back toward yourself disengaging the handcrank in case it kicked back.

If ya timing wasn't good enough, well, it hurt.

Griff 12-21-2018 08:24 AM

Seems like a feller could use a horse on a treadmill to start that.

Better to use a plane on a treadmill. A lot more thrust.

Then how does the plane get off the ground??

It's the air beneath my wings. flap flap flap flap flap flap
