  1. I'm lucky enough to have found my wife and her parents. They changed my mind so much. Mostly got that California life style out of my head. Started listening to Dave ramsay and following what he has to say, budget, save. Budget, budget. Saving isn't that big of a deal for me. I'm saving money.. also even investing be it stocks or crypto, I also pour money into my 401k. I think 15% of my pay goes to that. I feel ya nanner... but I love America! Lol. Your kinda right tho. We are free spirirts in a way. I think we're just having a hard time finding out what way we wanna go. Do we wanna get the loan for the 350k house. Or get a loan for the 175 200k land.. we can't find shit around here so it makes me wanna move states. Land is what I'm shooting for. Lexi does have land! 80 something acres in the blue mountains with a spring.. it's just.. pretty far out there. Kinda a fall back for when the CCP hit us with an EMP. Hahaha I don't hate my job, and have always held my work to high standards. I take pride in the work I do. Even if I pick up dog shit or wipe old pwoples ass's.. my Grandfather, Harold a brick layer for 50 years was there for me since I was 13 to help teach me hard work.. I'm not lazy at work. And not afraid to learn new shit. I seek out new skills. And probably why I don't want to really work at costco. Or! Move to part-time to take the time to set up other shit.. The pay is great! No complaints there. But it's not about the money. It's our minds. Maybe the work I'm doing isn't satisfying me. I kill my job! But it'd not challenging. Or just so idk. Not what I should be doing 'how it feels' anyway. Now the people is really what gets to me. Yes some are great! But the ones that aren't really hurt the Deli 'I work in the deli at costco' chickens, Alfredo, Mac, meat loaf. Ya know! I have helped train sooo many people! Some stick around and change their shitty work ethic.. but most.. SUCK! How the hell do you not know how to work.. basic shit.. slow, don't think of their steps. It's hard to deal with the turn over rate. The turn over rate really fucks my schedule. For almost a year my schedule was pretty good. Now it's all over the map. Open one day, mid shift next day, next day closing. And so on. Not having a good schedule fucks my day up and fucks with my mind.. And there isn't much I can do about that. Just wait I guess. Idk. I'll think of more to say later. Gotta check the chickens and walk the dog. I don't have time it feels to do the things I'd like.. I know everyone has that problem.. I haven't worked on the datsun in almost two years. I know it runs so.. she'll be there when I get the time..
  2. Off to work. I'll get back to this. Lol
  3. Don't know any wood working haha! Just interested in learning not so much that being what I do to make money. I hate the idea of money really. I don't want money to be the thing that drives my life. My wife is with me. She's done with her job.. it would be my job that makes us money. But what I want is not care about the money.. knowing i will need some.. to get shit done and live in today's world.. but also worred about the future. The fact that people can leave their jobs and move away is aw inspiring! You see. I don't own a house or land.. I live with my wifes parents in their big house. Now I know I'm complaining.. my wife is an only child.. and being so her parents really like having us here. We help them a good deal. And they also understand that times are hard. Buying a house or land is ridiculous. And getting a loan for a house is doable YES! but I feel as though if I get the house and loan but feel like it would solidify working at costco tell I pay off the house.. I know I don't have to pay it off I could sell.. just going through all that crap is just stuff I'd rather not fucking deal with.. Im being a little bitch I know. I have a good job. Good wife. No kids. But we both hate our jobs. And how we view our jobs.. I found out the other day that one costco worker brings costco 200+K a year to costco.. I made 40k last year...
  4. We got any wood working or gardening folks in here? Building with wood. Using a saw mill. Selling their goods. Canning and perserving goods. Selling at the farmer markets? I've been thinking about not working at costco for a while and kinda just doing work I'm more interested in. Gardening, farming, farmers market type things to make money or walking dogs idc. I know what most will say... I'm crazy. But I hate where my mind is at. I don't like making costco money and honestly would rather not worry about money. But I know that's not really realistic. I'm just trying to get more ideas or just talk with some people with know how on how to better my self.. it's not that I hate costco or hate working. I'm a hard worker and I'm not afraid to try new things and fail.. it happens.. but I'm not happy with my 40 hours a week at costco.. I feel like I don't have time to think about my life or my wifes mindset. How are people dealing with the "normal" life. 9 to 5. I know I'm young and I'm being a pussy to some but Im trying to better my mind! And better my wifes mind.
  5. That makes sense. Kinda like checking the crank thrust bearing clearance.
  6. Yep.. still not getting how they work or what they are doing. Whats being adjusted? Clearly I get they are shims. Never had to deal with them, at least not yet. If the shim wasn't there what would happen?
  7. Axle shim? What are these used for? Like the purpose of them?
  8. Sup! I see it basically the same around here. Good to be back.. Like normal.. no Datsun update. Other then! I'm working my way into the guys mind, To let me see a wagon parked in his lot. That doesn't belong to him. But these things take time.
  9. Uberkevin is alive..

    3. datzenmike


      Yup. Welcome back was a '70s version of Happy Days. I didn't like either.

      I watched happy days a few times. Other wise i think it was a little before my time. 

      Sitcoms are odd. Met a guy the other week. Looked like John Travolta. Never seen another. 

  10. Yepyep! Just been working and living. Hours are all over the place, mid day to night, morning to mid day, or just 4 hours somewhere randomly. Also I'm currently on a 9 day work week.. Then a day off then back to work for another 8 days. Then maaaybe that 3 days off that I asked for months ago but was never approved do to the fact I gave someone my work day giving him a 6 day work week.. I guess isn't allowed.. Had to go to the big wig to see if she would be willing to give me my 3 days off.. being I'm currently working 9 days.. As far as the Datsun.. Had to get some new tires. Also suspension is shot! Haha I drive her every now and then. Had to get a new maf a while back. Was also looking around with a multimeter and it seemed my tps isn't giving a reading at all.. so I gotta look into that. Probably why my throttle is a little odd some days. Been getting the pathfinder buttoned up to drive it this winter. Fix the driver window, door handle, passengers window, sun visor haha. Some other random shit. Oh valve cover and intake gaskets. 250k miles and still doing good! Needs new timing belt and water pump.
  11. Would really love to see some pictures.
  12. I was running that battery. I'm no longer however. I moved the location of my battery under my bed. https://www.oreillyauto.com/detail/super-start-extreme-power-sport-agm-5001/battery-accessories-16452/battery---automotive-16864/battery-12836/battery/etx14/4742665/1962/ford/falcon That's what I used, it's just a little bigger then the pc680. Better CCA at 220 I believe the pc680 is 170. When it got cold it did struggle to start. But I believe that was when the temp was 20° here. I'd recommend the second of the two batteries
  13. Really old belt. I'll look into pulley.
  14. Couldn't find it Annnd idk on the wheels
  15. My one tire fire is relatively back in action.. it's waay to hot here! And the past few months I've still had very little time to work on the Datto been helping my uncle build a few buildings and of course good'ol Costco is keeping me busy. Got a nice fence around the garden a long with lots off great garden foods. I've been driving the 521 a while now just not really around town I STILL need to get tabs haha, luckily I live in the farm area of Pasco so there's no cops around these parts. Running to the store and small things. I had to fix my torsion rods, my ride height was all fucked up, has been since I've gotten this truck haha the driver side has always been a bit lower then the passenger side..... annnnnd another alignment is in order.. scary at higher speeds.. I checked out a Z not to long ago, icehouse happen to buy it. However that thing was 10x scarier!! Bouncy ass FUCK! All over the road! Glad mine isn't like that but it's close and I've gotten used to driving the Subaru and the Xterra.. not the lossness of the Datto. Need another radiator fan.. broke mine on accident and with how hot and smokey it's been I really need that before I'm daily driving it.. Not to much in the way of an update but I'm on the road. Lol.
  16. Your right! Looks like ive gotta make my own.
  17. Could have did without the leopard-print but I think it turned out great.. Now make me some.
  18. I'll swap mine out for these and see how they do and get some pictures and measurements for the 240sx tranny.
  19. Thanks Mike. And Redeye.
  20. I asked Dmike. I'll let you know.
