  1. Two things Draker , just by this avatar most likely does NOT miss the SuperSonics .. What I’m thinking Draker is saying is.. The democrates are all for the tearing down of statues ( and taking down portraits now) as it erases THEIR history as extreme racists .. Kinda like the Nazi would do ,, to erase their involvement in the extermination of the Jews as to give them a reason to be able to argue not that it didn’t happen .. but it was someone else that did it..

  2. Stolen from elsewhere: Things are moving in a very bad direction. BLM has become the strongest political party in the USA. Dissenters are silenced with the label of "racist". Tow the line or be physically assaulted, have your business looted, or even burned to the ground. Capitalism is demonized. Business are shuttered, labeled as greedy or evil. People are left jobless and the only means of survival is government largess. The people are being conditioned to be dependent on the large state for handouts. People's ability to survive is being shifted from a private, capita

  3. Except it isn't just confederates, they are tearing down statues of Jefferson and Washington in Portland now. These "protests" no longer have anything to do with justice, or addressing police brutality, or any form of positive reform. This is pure destructive revolutionists trying to tear down America. The people who tore down the Washington statue were identified as Antifa on site although that has not been confirmed. If a community doesn't like a statue they should go through the lawful procedures to remove it. Allowing a lawless mob to destroy public pro

  4. I hate having to listen to it more than I could ever describe.. second only to Country (music), because there I can more easily avoid it. Rap (the c is silent) is pretty much the only 'expression' (won't call loud thumping and shouting vulgar rhymes, music) that is forced on me without my consent. With some bass added you could be shouting Shakespeare but it wouldn't be music. Only thing vile and offensive about the 'lyrics' is having to endure 'muthafuckas and 'hos" in public spaces. Driving around spewing this is no better than vaping douchebags reveling in their own filth.

  5. Also the next victim of the cancel culture left But what we should really ask ourselves why the sudden need to remove black people from these products. Aunt Jemima is not a negative depiction, hell it is a great story, she ends up their spoke person and goes from starting life as a slave to being well off. Isn't that the American Dream? Shouldn't we be celebrating that? All of the POC safe spaces, neo-segregation, white liberals "speaking for black people" and the racism of soft-expectations by reducing qualifications or scores for colleges is being

  6. It's moving. The correct direction is a little bit more equality for everyone. The pendulum swings. If police were held accountable for their actions, if guidelines were in place and enforced previous to this, it wouldn't be swinging so vigorously now. "greed is .... good." Corporations ARE greedy and evil and always have been, nothing new there. People became conditioned to be dependent on state handouts when they discovered that they could vote themselves more money. There are too many behind bars to begin with which promotes a vicious circle of cr

  8. Man, I jumped into this late. There is a lot of stuff going on in America. Doesn't matter what side of the fence you're on. What matters is that people just live their fricken lives to their full potential. Help one another and do something you can be proud of. Build a Datsun and drive the damn thing! If you want to talk about something, get the facts right. I wish people would stop throwing the propaganda ideas around. A lot of people want to state their opinion, but not listen to the other side. It's reasonable man theory that folks should consider, but people don't like to be wrong

  9. Maybe already covered in this thread somewhere... the confederate states were formed by the democrats succeeding from the union. So all those statues of confederates and flags and shit.. that’s them erasing their past. oh and the kkk, yeah same. All that really racist shit.. uh huh, same. 13th amendment, aka freeing the slaves, failed the first time it was voted on. It was basically a party line vote. All Republicans voting to pass and thus free the slaves, Democrats voting no. second time around 13 dems flipped and voted yes. Amendment passed. Proje

  12. It means cave dweller. The second definition is a relatively new addition and is what you are referring to. It is an allusion to someone being so primitive they still live in caves. However, you are tying to mean values you disagree with are outmoded. Just because someone does not agree with your opinion does not make it wrong, just different. Definition of troglodyte 1: a member of any of various peoples (as in antiquity) who lived or were reputed to live chiefly in caves 2: a person characterized by reclusive habits or outmo

  20. Use a quarter inch hex socket set. Reverse the quarter inch hex nut driver and put onto the quarter inch Allen wrench. You now have a quarter inch square nut driver to fit onto the adjuster shaft's square end. It's worked for me for 52 years.

  21. In the 70s I had a 55 chevy 2 door hard top that had a tilt front end. I was pinned so it could be taken off when working on 55. A friend of mine wanted to tilt my 50 Studebaker Champion and I said no. There is a 620 drag truck here in the West walley that has a tilt removable fiberglass front clip.

  23. Last year in Arkansas I saw on several different occasions black men flying the Rebel (Confederate) flag. I asked a couple of them about it and they said it's a sign of southern pride. I might be back down there in the next few months and will get this fully confirmed.

The same thing you can do regarding a flag,movie,statue or a bottle of Aunt Jemima.Such a hypocrite.

  26. You make it sound like the timing is the cause of over heating and setting it properly will fix it? Fix the over heating first, an overly hot engine will ping sooner that a cooler engine. Over heating can be narrowed down to (mostly) two major factors Coolant flow... Thermostat stuck and not opening fully. Soft lower rad hose that collapses from water pump suction Low coolant level Rad core inside plugged with hard water scale Heater hoses joined together to by pass leaky heater core Air flow... Missing fan shroud

  31. Usually there is a single pointer, and a pulley with several notches, one notch bigger. With the saw tooth segment, the pulley has one notch. If you have the saw tooth segment, and a notched pulley, parts from different engines may have been mixed up, and on your engine. You need to determine what timing marks on your engine are for finding Top Dead Center, or TDC Take the cam cover off the top of the engine. Turn the engine clockwise, viewed from the front, and watch the two front cam lobes. The very front cam lobe, the exhaust valve lobe will be about a 2:00 o' clo

  33. The only place the confederate flag belongs is flying over a Cracker Barrel that is showing a Gone With the Wind and Song of the South double feature. That symbol is so synonymous with hate and oppression of black people that Mississippi -- a state not known for it's civil rights protections-- has it on their state flag.

  35. Got the tie rods installed finally. Will get the brake rotor put on Monday and set it back down on the ground... Been meaning to tear into the dash for awhile to see what's what. Gauge face is in good shape and was surprisingly easy to get out... I want to do round gauges instead of the sweep speedo so trying to see what that takes. The answer is, a lot... 😃 I may experiment with just replacing the entire dash face with some sheet metal or carbon so I can fit aftermarket round gauges... Al

  37. And tail lights back in... And couldn't resist one last test, this time in bright sunshine. I think they will be okay... That took 20 minutes. Spent the rest of my time just trying to fight the damn column out of the car...😅 Took the column out for 3 reasons. One, to remove any unnecessary bits like the stuff for the automatic shifter. Two, to clean and repaint it after that. And three, to install a quick release... While the column was out we noticed the bushing that holds the top

  38. Got the right side back together at least... Mocking up the bracket and rotor... The kit comes with shims to level the bracket to the rotor face. Fortunately, only needed one on the top and none on the bottom... And got all that screwed together with loctite and the rotor on... And yes, that pic was taken before greasing the bearings, installing the rear grease seal, and installing the dust cap, which I did, but did not take a photo of... 😁
