Pancakes are the rubber diaphragms in the brake chambers. You really gotta know what your doing with spring brakes, they'll really F you up if take the clamp off without the brake caged.

Yup, many a mechanic has been killed or maimed by those. I've rebuilt many and still have my face. They're cheap enough nowadays to just replace the whole unit. Illegal to throw the old ones in the dumpster up here.

GOODMORNINGDIESELRAM...went deer hunting yesterday, the deer we're the winners May take my old gutters down today, we found a gutter guy to replace the old ones. Also thinking about where we'll be for spud fest Next year. As of now it will be the second to the last or last full week in June. Than I'll be headed up to Mt St Helens the week after the 4th of July.

The last storm cleared out and the temperature dropped to 30 last night. Going to be clear, but not very warm. Around 40 today. Then back to the rain.

Good morning DR, dreary start to a wet fall day. Sixty to 70ish is the guess right now. Planned trip to the Great NorthWet is cancelled as I have lived there the last 6 months. KnoxVegas is the rumor this week as customer needs help with a Caravan. All I see is a new place to eat lunch. Although the lady friend does live nearby
