So I rode the bike and the. Seat needed some adjustment .. Tilted way far down in the front . Don’t ask me why but I unclamped the seat post before I loosened up the clamp holding the seat on ...
    You guessed it ! Post slid down the frame and got wedged at the bottom ...
    Turned it upside down ..Shook it beat on it and everything else to try and un lodge it .. Finally after an hour or so and many home made tools I got it unstuck ..
    Lesson learned !!
    Funny! Remember when I worked in the warehouse(Delivery) before I got into Service We would assemble bicycles before Christmas for the stores.Found some damaged; missing parts; etc.Put a bunch together.

    Wally World hires people who assemble only! Bicycles; Grills; Christmas trees;furniture; etc. Easy work; inside; heard pay was decent. Won't get rich; but quick holiday money

        • Got my 13 dollar Chinese coil today for my lawnboy .Just in time to mulch the snow!If this is the culprit which im 98 percent sure it is im going to look for a new carb from the same supplier if possible.The carb I got for the toro snowblower works greatBraved Canadian version of black Friday and I survived by looking at the crowd, turning around, and going home.Went back later and got what I wanted so im done for Christmas a month early for the first time in my 60 years on this planet.Their calling for rain for Saturday so my plan to take the suv to the carwash is on hold as it wont last 20 minutes in the slush and crap.

              • That's only 1 Canadian drunk cord,lol.That would last me 10 years in my garage at the rate I burn out there the last few years.The load I have in there right now is at least 3 years old.Heading out there tomorrow to clean up and work on the lawnboy lawnboy .My Chinese coil came in so time to see if that's the issue.This year I had a very large Manitoba maple in my yard cut down so I will burn some of that also.I believe my American friends would call it a box elder.

                • Well, the neighbor got a different plow truck so today I will be taking his western vee off a Ford and putting it on a chevy...got the wiring done last night, brackets and auxiliary lighting on the schedule today.

                  Does anyone know what the circuit labeled "seo acc" on a 2001 chevy 2500 is for? Think I will pull power for co trollers from it but I need to make sure it's not something too important, like abs or engine control or air bags.

                          • I know about the drinking thing...I dropped my Jack habit two thanksgivings ago just out of the blue...went from several glasses of Jack a day to none for no particular reason. It's like I suddenly quit being thirsty, although that's when I finally got pain medication. Maybe I just didnt hurt as much. (Pain meds are really hard to get legally here in the states).. I certainly haven't quit drinking entirely it's just now it's a beer or two after the works done before dinner and that's it. Getting old is a drag, painful, boring, and more work it seems. It's also much more expensive...$100 bucks used to last a week, now I spend several c-notes a day...

                              Yes; finally getting to use my monster Igloo I have. With 8 quarters; 2 nice back straps; 2 gal of milk; and topped off with ice; it will sit for at least a week.

                              Hang in there Mr. Rude! Speaking of "little helpers"; I am not allowed on the roof (per her); even though its 1 story. During T; some Elves (Grand Kids) came and blew off the roof; valleys;and picked it up. They sent us pixs.

                              Watching the news now. We are suppose to have a Frog Floater coming in; (6"-8") of rain. Look Out Big H!!
