There's an amazing irony in that for me. I watched a girl, while pulling an engine from a junked Chevy, smash her fingers between the motor mounts.

Somehow, I don't think that me saying that would have been any help, before, or after.

So that means she lost her fingers. Sometimes people fail to realize how delicate our biological body is....until its too late. I wish we could grow body parts like shark teeth.

Not quite. Though I think she wishes she had. She shattered two fingers and split her middle finger open, to the bone, for the last inch of her finger.

And she blamed me for it. When I couldn't even see what she was doing. And it wasn't my job to keep her from smashing the shit out of her fingers.

Absolutely no logical reason to blame you. She was doing something and it was her responsibility to safeguard herself.

I've got one of those stories too.

Once upon at time ago, I was a green horn in the oilfield industry, and one fine day while we were working on a dual new drill, and a recomplete, this girl that was on our crew (she was a welders helper) got her finger mangles in one of the tracks the the welder's rollout welding skid, I'm pretty sure that I seen one of her fingers dangling by a thread of meat, anyway to fix her fingers the surgeon had to sow her fingers together. She had to keep them like that for months, we end up giving her the nick name "the penguin" she hated it.

Use some of that $640 to buy a radiator pressure tester. I know my Matco set wasn't cheap, but I bet they're out there under $100. Out of all the "specialty" tools I have, that one sees a lot of action.

Edit:

$56.

I think I can rent or borrow a pressure tester, I have never used one

If the guy at the radiator shop puts the O-rings and seats the tubes correctly for me, I will run the truck before I re-assemble the dash board

cause it didn't leak until it came up to pressure, I guess I should of let idle a little longer and watched the top of the core to see if was leaking or steam coming from the seal

Instead of driving it around the block and could smell it before it started pissing, I think its the right side tube, which is return or cooled off water coming out of the core

I have never replaced a heater core before, I did replace a radiator once or twice, but never used a pressure tester, cause the replacement radiator was pressure tested before I bought it

I'm glad your having your fun, and making me out to be a piece of shit

You know there a lot worse people than me, doing shit a lot worse then I what I'm doing

I raise a little hell and burn a lot of bridges, its my nature and I don't apologize

For being a honest Asshole and I pull no punches, and I speak my mind and can admit when I'm wrong

I don't bother anybody until they Rattle my cage or activate the launch code

Everybody has buttons that they do not like touched and when the buttons are pressed

Its then becomes for reals and its on

Its Legal for me to Cultivate my own medicine and I do have my medical card and I have been grandfathered into the State of Nevada Medical Marijuana program ,

which means I have earned the right to renew my card every year and can not be denied the right to apply every year

Cause I have had my card before 2010 and Nevada is a Medical Marijuana state and going is Recreational later this year and Cali is also,

So kicking back in Lake Tahoe is going to be even more fun later this year, the Casino's and the skiing while high is going to be a new experience

For some people, me I'm going to be ok

kgb424,
What is the point in keeping a truck that is going to keep sucking money out of you for repairs?

Cause my credit is only fair to the lower part of good, and do not have the required cash flow

To get financing or a decent car loan, I live in the Valley below Lake Tahoe and do get a fair amount

Of snow and ice in the winter and you need a four wheel drive or all wheel drive or even front wheel drive

My old Toyota Camry did pretty good in the snow with spiked winter tires but would get high sided every once in awhile

So I'm stuck with what vehicles I own now, cause even if I sell one or both of them, I still would not be able to buy something new

or even a vehicle that is 10 years old, would be more electronics and even harder too work on and more expensive for shop repairs

I can work on the 87 Toyota and the 95 GMC, big repairs or electronic diagnostics, I take too the shop

If I can afford it and lately, I have been financially struggling too cover my ass but my bills are paid on time

Some time its steak and potatoes for dinner but most of time its hamburger and some thing made in the crock pot

I can't quite figure it out yet, but didn't want to forget the thought, cause I would, but it's something about typewriters...

FWD cars and snow tires are really fun.

Alright, I give. Is this a haiku joke, or have you just had a couple more Nattys than usual?
