Here's my '69 Chevy C-20 that I fixed up with my dad in high school, it was my daily driver from '07-'09. Basic farm truck it's whole life, 292 L6, 4-speed (granny low first). Still have it, but it hasn't been driven in years.

Heat and penetrating oil should help, and so will the impact if it doesn't round out the allen head and spin. Do you have a welder, or a buddy with a welder? You could weld a nut to the head of the bolt, just a few tacks from the inside of the nut to ... more »

I have some of their T-handles with the blue spinner handle. On the 1/4" drive one the detent ball is very weak so it doesn't hold the socket well, most of the time the socket pulls off of the T-handle when I'm coming off of a bolt. I got a 3/8" drive ... more »

This. My girlfriend has been a T-11 complete paraplegic for the better part of the more than three years we have been together. I've witnessed her ups and downs since the day she went over the bars on her mountain bike. It's a lot of complicated emotions ... more »

Added reply in a thread When did you quit? 2/18/2016 6:46 AM

I grew up riding and racing for fun with my dad, but it was always off-and-on. Dad and I would ride and race cross-country, then get tired of the cost/driving/maintenance/heat, and we would switch to mountain bikes for a while. Then we would get the ... more »

Added reply in a thread Just curious, what is your daily work commute? 2/12/2016 2:39 PM

30 miles each way, usually 35-45 minutes. It's rough. I enjoy driving, and have a new-to-me fun daily driver, but it's pretty tough to find any enjoyment on DFW highways during rush hour.

Surging idle is usually a lean condition, my money would be on an air leak somewhere causing an intermittent lean condition (causing the RPM to rise). I can't imagine a plug or electrical issue causing your symptoms. Just a wild guess here, would having ... more »

Added reply in a thread YZ plastics conversion 2/8/2016 9:14 AM

I was able to swap the old hardware from my '02 airbox onto the '15-'16 airbox, with the exception of the M6 bolts that fasten the airbox to the subframe (under the seat, towards the tank). The '02 bolts had a collar that wouldn't fit the new airbox. ... more »

Here's my converted '02. Fit and finish were perfect (except for my old tweaked radiators), and I had to drill holes for the '15 front fender.

Added reply in a thread Ultra Budget 250 2T build help? 1/24/2016 3:56 PM

I'll vote for a YZ. I bought this '02 a year and a half ago and did a quickie rebuild to make it rideable and presentable. Since then I have slowly acquired nice parts when I have some extra cash. YZs are easy, so many parts out there with a lot of interchangeability

Sad to know Matthes said that it happened six months ago as if Mika's suffering is said and done. It's not in the past. It's happening now. Mika continues to suffer in a world where you are trapped inside your own body. I'm a fan of Keefer and Matthes, ... more »
