5 months agoMaybe FreeWilly could use up the next batch of dynamite on his bike. Lot cheaper/easier than pulling those primaries. One match and run like heck.
I`m only kidding cause you really can`t do that to a H-D.
5 months agoLOL I think he wanted to do that to it years ago. It, like most 88s was a bit of a dog on hills.
5 months agoNot anymore thanks to EOD and Trip. Trip recommended the S&S 510 cams and they are just right for two up riding. Had a pre-load on the tuner but still need to do a Dyno, sometimes on the hills the check engine light will come on. But it flies up the hills. My other bike has SE 203 cams 95" and doesn`t have the midrange torque this one does.

"You got lakes and rivers that I know are unbelievable for fishing. We don`t have much real good fishing in the East because the wind blew the acid rain across the country from coal fired factories. Especially in the Adirondack Mountains in New York. Not even a sunny in the many many lakes. It spread down to the south also.
I hope I do win the lottery soon - not long after I`ll be there."
EOD....Since I just returned from an SSR Rally out in the Western end of our State (N.C.). I don`t want you to take too literally McGs comments about fishing in the East. While he may have it correct as to conditions in the Adirondack Mountains, we`re still alive and well with fishing for trout and stripers in Western N.C.
After our Rally, Linda and I traveled the Blue Ridge Parkway which starts in Cherokee and goes on North thru N.C. and on into Virgina and beyond. We were on it most all day Sunday and finally spent the night in Blowing Rock which is way up state. While not having experienced it first hand, I can relate that there are many businesses in that end of the state involved with guiding for trout in several streams and rivers in these parts. Not sure the trout sizes can compare with what ya`all may have out your way, but no lack of availability here and many success stories with the locals.
In fact, I may try and come back out during the hottest months of the year for a break and to give those trout/strippers a try.
5 months agoHey, FreeWilly! Does it throw a code or does the light just come on. I`m curious what it might be. I doubt it`s from the cam/head work but I wonder if it`s a lean issue or something. Have you checked for codes?
5 months agoMoScooter, I have an Army EOD buddy from Greensboro, NC (He lives in Florida) and I`ve hunted and fished there. I know it`s not ruined. The fish might have two heads but it`s still good eatin!LOL
5 months agoI am talking mostly about Yankee Bass fishing. I did catch some nice ones in the lakes near Raleigh. I`m speaking about the early seventies in NY State about the mountain lakes being empty of them. Some catfish were tough and made it through though. Long Lake and the whole mountain chain was screwed. The coal fired plants west of NY and on that level sure screwed up a lot of things. I guess that would be from Milwaukee on East.
There were plenty of fish in the Finger Lakes region of the St. Lawrence River in the early 80`s though. Locals told me it was getting better and better. I was the camp cook and we had bass (out of season) and Muskies (in season) every night. Except one - when we had to eat the steaks.
5 months agoI know the 70s and maybe early 80s were bad for acid rain. I`m sure it didn`t do any of the wildlife any good.
5 months agoMy daughter lives near Milwaukee and I`ve been there many times. You can see all the big manufacturing plants like Massey Ferguson, and the like that are closed and now converted to condos. They never tore down any of them. And there is no more acid rain. I don`t know where everything moved to but the world sure is much happier now.
5 months agoI guess progress has it`s ups and downs. One never knows what will turn out for the best. I`m sure they miss the jobs.

Years ago, when I lived in Kingston, N.Y. (out by the Ashokan Reservoir) our first (two months per billing) bill for electricity was a staggering amount. Can`t recall now just how much, but in those days it was a huge bill.
The whole house had base board electric heat in each room.
The bill prompted me to go out and buy a coal stove. It sat out on the hearth and a huge steel plate covered the fireplace opening with the stove pipe going thru it. That damn coal stove was super, it heated the whole house without a blower attachment even needed.
It could last all day and still be going good enough to just add more coal in the evening (without adding any kindling).
However, if you were starting out (cold), it took some serious kindling to get that coal going. Thus I had a large supply of hardwood scraps from a local "bat factory".
Kept those hardwood scraps covered up in plastic out back of the house, but it would only take a couple of weeks or so and the damn plastic covering would get lots of holes in it.
So, long story short.............Not sure, but maybe I was creating my own acid rain.
