The end is in sight, Spring is coming and Hope is in the air.
I hope everyone's doing OK? I am starting to feel a bit better myself:
So also turned out I was becoming diabetic. Last month I tested 18 on the blood sugar meter. That's literally off the scale(but I did have a huge lunch right before). I have since fasted, started a decent diet, and am now testing between 7-10(126-180). So got that back under control. Did a pair in the 6's after some exercise, too. I do feel a hell of a lot better. Still, they have me on pills for that as well. The worst part is having to take your blood test sticking a needle in your fingers when you have white finger. Very annoying.
Got the BP to 150/95. Started playing tennis again since they opened up the clubs. But I only play with one guy I know to keep my exposure down, or else I just hit the wall. On pills for this a well. Stopped eating all dairy and beef aside from occasional milk. My diet is a bit crazy at the moment compared to teh crap I used to eat, but I oddly do not feel hungry most days.
Got my first Pfizer shot Thursday. Still a bit sore from it. Hope this means at least I won't run the risk of making the MIL sick if I go out and about.
Sales still stagnant, but at least a few bars have gone out the door.
I haven't yet. Funny how when you go from burning 6-10 cord/year to less than one the saws don't get as much use.Just done porting a 365AT. Love how simple these older Husky's are to tear in to. Waiting to head back down to Waterford so I can test it in larger wood. The muffler on these here are very stuffed up. So I spent some time in there. Otherwise, just did what most folks I see hereabouts on the forums do. Added a few degrees to the xfers and intake, advanced the timing a touch, hogged out the exhaust a bit. Etc etc.
Wendell - I know Mitch has used and ported a few, so wondered have you tried any of the newer 565's or 572's? Did they get rid of the AT heat start issues? I wonder. Also - don't forget to put Hey, WYK! on the wall next time you are near your work station. Be cool to see it.
Yes! It was apparently the damn tank vent dumping into the intake. There's a retrofit plenum and filter kit that eliminates the problem and also fixes the air filter issues. They shoulda ironed that out before the originals hit the streets!Did they get rid of the AT heat start issues?

I had Mastermind work my 562 over a few years ago and it's great. I've been running a 32" Sugi on it mostly and it never says no.
H1N1 didn’t cause healthy people to have ARDS or MODS. This does. People die from ARDS and MODS.
This is not something to take lightly. When we’re done, many, and I mean in the tens of thousands at least, will die from this. Disregarding it isn’t only putting yourself at risk, but also everyone in the general public.
