  1. Thinking about owning a bike with miles on it is making his eye twitch anyway
  2. You really gonna hold out over $200? You spend more than that on a Starbucks run.

    Garage door opener troubleshooting.,.

    Ended up replacing with the latest version of the same old Craftsman. Same track/shuttle and everything so the motor went right in. Apparently they made changes to the controls because the old wall switch and remotes wouldn’t work. Had to swap everything - no big deal. New model also has the option to operate on your phone through WiFi. Not sure I’ll use that but I set it up too.
  5. Cheap Craftsman 1/2hp opener. Very basic but always worked fine. Earlier this week the wife complained that the opener wouldn’t work with the touch of one button - but rather had to hold the button down, both inside and remote. Opener not flashing which indicates it’s not the safety beams. I set the manual release and ran the door up and down by hand several times - very smooth with no binding. Opener operates no problem with the door disconnected. Reconnect the door and now the opener won’t operate more than a couple feet before stopping and running back to full open. I climb up on a ladder and look at track and the shuttle, all seems fine. I climbed up on top to watch the drive sprocket run - seems very jerky and uneven. Cleaned, lubed, and adjusted the entire chain and greased the track just to be sure. No change. Now motor will not go up and down regardless if the door is connected or not. I’m about ready to chuck the whole opener and install a new one - but anything to check beforehand?
  6. LOL - you say that Dave. But you have never had a vehicle with 70k miles in your life!
  7. I can get a quote together if you want. Figure 3-4 hours labor at $119/hr for the seals alone. $300-$400 for tires depending on what goes on it...
  8. I took this in trade the other day - runs fine, looks decent. 70k Miles. Gonna need tires after a short bit. Fork seals too. Get this for my price before it goes to auction.

    Well - I was guilty of that one I guess. But you still haven’t presented “the other side”.

    So you agree that Trump is doing a good job?

    Pretty much... her mom/my aunt openly wept on Facebook Live when Clinton lost. Shes a Professor at UC Irvine so I'm not surprised shes leaving though. My cousin on the other hand - she is a great kid who used to have a pretty level head and you could have reasonable discussions with even tough she leaned left. I fear she is following her moms path though.

    It wasn't. She sold to CarMax for $22500. Her fault for the failure to plan. She pretty well owned it outright and isn't planning to come back to the states so... Both her and her mom cited Trump as one of the big reasons they are leaving the US so I guess it does happen...
