I only managed 7 rebuilds this winter, three of them from the crank up the others many parts each with some new OEM piston and cylinder sets, ported 3 different saws and did one cylinder for a fellow member. Since the snow left I have been involved with many outdoor activities.

Have the same shoes on my new work truck. They aren't as smooth as my Michelin's but they aren't bad. Will see how they wear. I have a feeling with the diesel they won't last like I hope.

I dropped my rims off to have the all seasons mounted, the Goodyears were down to the wear bars from last seasons rolling about. They had about 37,000 on em.

Seasonal tire changes.... sounds like a lot of work. I guess we do it down here too except its for hunting season.
Yeah it is......and expensive too. $100.00+ just to swap tires and balance. I keep two set of rims for all our vehicles.....nicer ones for summah and most beat ones for my winta tires.......that way I can just rotate them out when I want. And that's not cheep either but I don't have to involve anyone else.

Only way to roll with changing them twice a year. Got my Michliens on and Cooper snow tires stored away, get a few months of running on the new all seasons before the change over this fall. Mud season just about dried up, might get extended if we get any amount of rain, hope not.Boats are next to get serviced.

This turd brought more excitement selling than anything I've listed in quite a while. Did not last an hour. Got almost new price for a 14 year old pice of junk.

Its a Stihl, what did you expect.!
Yep.......you 'memba what that famous fella said 'bout "One being born every minute"?.........seen old junk sell for near new prices at many tool auctions, ebay etc. Nothing like a good "bidding frenzy" to get the price up there!!
You did clean it up nice Jimmy....that certainly didn't hurt!!
I've got another one of them in the pile somewhere. I'll be going through it next!
