The high this week will be 92 here in the mountains. I think I only used the heater when I needed the defroster last winter, but that was probably dozens of times.

I keep having other projects which are allegedly more important. I want to start as soon as I find and install the crankshaft pulley bolt.

I have a serious question Xist, why not just get a second job? Costco starts out at like 13-14 per hour most places, and that sure beats zero. From what I hear of your life it sounds like you made a very poor career choice but don't want to admit it.

You could also get into manufacturing, I started on an assembly line 5 years ago, now I'm a salaried QC specialist, and all I did to climb was show up on time and work hard.

Last I heard, he has a second job. Just like the first, I suspect.

Not a lot of opportunities where he lives for full time gummint employment.

So work in the private market? I don't see what's so hard about that.

Never seen a grade 9 nylock nut since you should only use them in shear.
