I hate to get back on topic but if the OP was asking for all old posts to disappear, I for one wouldn't like that. There's a ton and a half of good info that would be lost.....

Are you sure '85 was the last year for MB mechanical injection? I have a '93 300D 2.5L 5cyl and the pump sure looks mechanical to me. I could be wrong....it's happened at least once before.... ;D  ;D

One more, almost as good:

‘Viet Nam Veteran’

A few days ago one of my Marine buddies sent me a ‘Viet Nam Veteran’ cap. I never had one of these before, and I was pretty hyped about it, especially since someone was considerate enough to take the time to give it to me.

Yesterday, I wore it when I went to Wal-Mart. There was nothing in particular that I needed at the world’s largest retailer; but, since I retired, trips to Wally World to look at the Wal-martians is always good for some comic relief. Besides, I always feel pretty normal after seeing some of the people that frequent the establishment. But, I digress…enough of my psychological fixations.

While standing in line to check out, the guy in front of me, probably in his early thirties, asked, “Are you a Viet Nam Vet?”

“No,” I replied.

“Then why are you wearing that cap?”

“Because I couldn’t find the one from the War of 1812.” I thought it was a snappy retort.

“The War of 1812, huh?” the Wal-martian queried, “When was that?”

God forgive me, but I couldn’t pass up such an opportunity.

“1936,” I answered as straight-faced as possible.

He pondered my response for a moment and responded, “Why do they call it the War of 1812 if it was in 1936?”

“It was a Black Op. No one is supposed to know about it.”

This was beginning to be way fun!

“Dude! Really?” he exclaimed. “How did you get to do something that COOOOL?”

I glanced furtively around me for effect, leaned toward the guy and in a low voice said, “I’m not sure. I was the only Caucasian on the mission.”

“Dude,” he was really getting excited about what he was hearing, “that is seriously awesome! But, didn’t you kind of stand out?”

“Not really. The other guys were wearing white camouflage.”

The moron nodded knowingly.

“Listen man,” I said in a very serious tone, “You can’t tell anyone about this. It’s still ‘top secret’ and I shouldn’t have said anything.”

“Oh yeah?” he gave me the ‘don’t threaten me look.’

“Like, what’s gonna happen if I do?”

With a really hard look I said, “You have a family don’t you? We wouldn’t want anything to happen to them, would we?”

The guy gulped, left his basket where it was and fled through the door. By this time the lady behind me was about to have a heart attack she was laughing so hard. I just grinned at her.

After checking out and going to the parking lot I saw Dimwit leaning in a car window talking to a young woman. Upon catching sight of me he started pointing excitedly in my direction. Giving him another ‘deadly’ serious look, I made the ‘I see you’ gesture. He turned kind of pale, jumped in the car and sped out of the parking lot.

What a great time!

Tomorrow I’m going back with a Homeland Security cap.

Whoever said retirement is boring just needs the right kind of cap!


Ended @ $4305.55.....reserve not met. Will it be relisted?? Tune in tomorrow....... ;D

RE the craigs list:  Here is the response I received to questions about the internal cleaning and pictures:

"The engine is brand new in the crate. I have never opened it.  I have an identical one here  which runs that I and a friend assembled last year.   It has neither been assembled  nor cleaned/inspected.  The images are merely representative of what a listeroid looks like and my motor is very close in appearance to those images."

Unless you speak Chinese you probably won't get a response. ???  I've had the same problems in the past. Try an online translator and then cut and paste the translation.

The 'Collectors Creed' and 'Universal Reason for Aquisition' states (especially when it comes to a chunck of iron that she can't move) "Tis easier to beg forgiveness than ask permission".  ;)

Don't miss the next one!! ;D ;D

PS: The answer to the question  'how many engines do you need?' is simply "As many as it takes to fill the space next to where I'll be sleeping in the shed".  :D

To fabricator and fuelfarmer:

Your math is way off....28 days X 24 hours per day is more like 672,000 hours. Use a calculator if in doubt ;D ;D ;D
