re: Thoughts on the Cub/Boy Scouts - subMOA
35 years ago, it was awesome- they had a Scout Hut in our town where the meetings were, my dad and a couple of the other dads took us tent camping at a Scout Reservation- I remember they would make a huge charcoal pit on the ground and you would wrap your food in foil and cook it there. Totally S...

re: How much money does the Advocate make? - subMOA
[quote]Newspapers don't make a lot of money. A lot of them are owned by bigger conglomerates that offer other services and products than just newspapers so those bigger conglomerates can offset the bleeding from the papers. [/quote] So true- I used to work for the Fiat Group. We had at that time...

re: Latoya Destroya-ing a man at Windsor Court - subMOA
I love the Polo Lounge- when we stay at the Windsor Court- it’s our go to to have a relaxing drink before we head out to dinner. Why in the Holy Name of Jesus does our modern society allow trash like this to be in any position of authority? If I acted like this at my job, I’d be laughed out ...

re: Generac Oil Filter Tip - subMOA
That’s a bull shite question- GM didn’t make the 327 until the early 60s. And besides counselor- no one today would still have a swapped 327 in a Tri-5 Chevy. All the cool kids put LS motors in them now. ...

re: What generator do you have? - subMOA
[img]https://i.imgur.com/aCJYin5.jpg[/img] 65kW MQ Whisperwatt 70. It’s only slight overkill. Brought it home from work when we got power back on there- it’s turning out to be a giant pain in the ass....

re: Generac Oil Filter Tip - subMOA
22kW Guardian at my mom and dads- 3/4” threads- same as the little Generac filter. The gasket is just a hair bigger on the 1515- but it works and seals. ...

re: Generac Oil Filter Tip - subMOA
Yep- the 13L engines I normally fool with hold 7 gallons! :-) I love the downvoters- people downvoting that wouldn’t have the slightest clue how to do an air to boil test on a cooling package, yet I have some vehicles that I designed forever ago and they have over 40,000 hours on them and stil...

re: Generac Oil Filter Tip - subMOA
[quote] Alright Mr. Know-it-all. Riddle me this, I’ve heard that using synthetic motorcycle oil is best for these engines due to the engineering for higher RPMs. Any truth to this? TIA[/quote] 100% true- in the tier’d emissions diesel world, we can let people go 600 hours now between changes up ...

re: Generac Oil Filter Tip - subMOA
[quote]The Germans engineer thier ICEs with very large crankcase/oil capacities. Diesel engine manufacturers do the same.[/quote] This! You can never ever have too much oil. Buuuuut- the oil level can be too high! That’s the beauty of using the big filter- you get added capacity tha...

re: Generac Oil Filter Tip - subMOA
We were surprised as well. But I will give them this- I admittedly beat up on Generac in the other thread- until I got to my parents house and found out my dad hadn’t checked the oil all week- about a pint came out, maybe a bit less. They are apparently tough little engines to keep running li...

FYI- the guys who came up with this plan (me) and another friend have 47 combined years of engineering experience in the OEM off highway world for a company significantly bigger than Generac so we’re good. Promise. ...

Generac Oil Filter Tip - subMOA
So, by now many of us have learned that the engines on the Generacs use a fair amount of oil. We also know that running them in this +90 degree weather is hard on them- and many of us will be running them for a few more weeks at least. Wouldn’t it be awesome if there was a way to increas...

re: Generac generator crapping out - subMOA

re: Can I borrow your Mercury Marauder? - subMOA
I PROMISE you- you DO NOT want to take a 5000 mile road trip in a 50+ year old car. No matter how cool you think that is now, it will be immediately obvious once you get about 50 miles down the interstate and all the fun wears off. Additionally unfun will be when it breaks down and you ha...

re: Paging Napoleon- Panel Ready Diswasher - subMOA
Yep- everything else in this house is Wolf, Subzero, and Scotsman on the nugget ice machine- see I promised I was an OT baller. I had major major doubts when the appliance guy recommended this thing- but I was already tired of the 18 month build time on this house so I capitulated. So- C...
