Sunny 70's here. Hauled a little dirt & rock. It looks like road salt etched the aluminum wheels on the KW. It will take considerable buffing to get them right again.

Clunk, when you get the wheels back in order on the KW put some Doc Johnson's SexWax on the wheels to protect them from the salts. We use it on floatplane propellers to keep the water from pitting the leading edges. Reapply as needed.

Good Afternoon DieselRam....
Most of the rain stalled out 50 miles NW. We got a few showers and they got 3-4 INCHES!!
Hit 80 4 out of 5 days, 70's last 2. Lows havent passed 60.
Managed to snag a couple hauls every day & dodge the rain mostly. Barely stayed ahead of it yesterday.
BIG weather event headed our way tonight into tomorrow...they say. Definitely some heavy rain, could get ugly.
Think I hear a scrubbing sound from the left rear wheel of the 09..

Mostly cloudy 76f with light showers here and there.
New house modem wouldn't light the phone line....called provider and he got the modem going but there was still an open in the phone line circuit. After checking all the connections in the house, I loosened and retightened the screws in the outside box and the line started working. I remember a phone repairman telling me to always check that first if the circuit ever opened....my poor memory.
After adjusting the clutch on the KW, the clutch brake gap was 1/4" instead of the required 1/8". I lengthened the clutch rod to close that gap and now the clutch brake works and I can get it into gear without grinding.
Tightened the front springs u-bolts while I was at it.

Thanks for the tip Jet, I'll get some.
