All the low bypass turbojets are noisy.  I flew in a British one once, don't 
remember what it was, but it had two Rolls Conways in the back.  Very noisy 
engines.

I flew on N194AT and N163AT frequently in the early half of the 1980s as a

club. One was a -100 variant, the other a -500 model. Both of these were used 
for international and long-haul domestic flights as well as charters. There was 
a third L-1011 in their fleet but I don’t have pictures of it. I think it was 
destroyed in a ground fire in the late 80s.

My Mom did many, many hours in these as she traveled extensively with them 
overseas. They had at least one DC-10 I know she flew in with them as well, 
they might have had more, I don’t recall.

They were wonderful aircraft, and really impressive when you were standing next 
to them out on the tarmac.

Sort of wish Lockheed had stayed in the commercial market but the L-1011 was 
their swan song.

Flaming ACTUAL death on a DC-10, occasionally, yes, but that's

My first attempt to ride an Airbus was in the early 80s; it BSODed
and we hadda switch to a DC-10.  Very comfy ride.

'07 & '08 Bluetec doesn't use cat pee. DPF that will clog up if you just
putter around town. Need to run 55 mph + for at least 30 min every
2 fill-ups to keep it cleaned out.
With 195k on the clock I would make sure the O ring seals on the
inter cooler have been changed within the last 1k. The new seals that
MB came out with superior to the 2nd rev. Did mine 2 mts ago. It's a 2

Hey Russ,

Thanks for the offer but I managed to score a variety of PS2 mice at 
my office the other day.


Amazingly the first one I tried worked perfectly. It's an HP brand 
optical mouse, I didn't give it much hope, I'd read that the serial 
(joystick) ports on the Atari ST were low power and couldn't run USB 
mice so I'd assumed that really meant they wouldn't run optical mice. 
I was pleasantly surprised.


Lit up mouse:

I also found this cool little monitor in my pile o' stuff. I think I'd 
originally gotten it to put into a 9" Mac.

https://photos.app.goo.gl/g3vc2NhKhcwBFQXd9

It only works in the high res, monochrome, mode, otherwise the sync 
rate of the ST is too slow. I haven't had any luck finding a monitor 
that supports 15khz VGA. I need to make a trip to the thrift store...

yesterday and it said I was approved and only appointment I could find was 5 
hours away. Last night before bed a bunch of spots appears at a place 2 hours 
away. I did not book. This morning that place 2 hours away only had a few spots 
left for Saturday so I booked.

A few minutes later I was able to convince SWMBO to register, so I did hers and 
she was approved also. No appointments anywhere. A little while later I 
searched again and a place a hour away said it had appointments. By the time I 
clicked in it says not available anymore. Searched again and a place about 1.5 
hours away had a bunch of spots suddenly so tried a couple of the time slots 
and it said not available, tried a 3rd and it took. So hers is on Friday, and 
closer.

Moral of the story is you have to book these quick. Hope I don’t grow a 3rd eye

Re: [MBZ] Batteries, was: Daimler cheated too? (I'm sure VW feels better now)

2020-09-20 Thread Russ Williams via Mercedes
I have a Boltpower NO2 jump pack. I've used it 6x's in the last few 
months. Works
great. 800CCA 1200Peak Amps. The first time I used it was to boost off a 
Froad Power
choke 2500. His battery was down to 3 Volts on my multi meter. Hook up 
the bolt to it
waited 30 seconds and it fired up the Power Choke on 3 rev. The guy was 
impressed with
it. Said he had a hard time jumping the truck off with a regular car 
battery. Truck has had
a problem since new with a parasitic draw problem that the dealer hasn't 
been able to find.
He's has it in the shop 3x's each time they say they fixed it but it 
keeps rearing up it's ugly

head and coming back. The last time they "fixed" it was the week before.
I bought the Bolt because of a article I read that the reporter had 
tested 10 different jump
packs that were rated to start ditzels and this was the only that did 
what it was advertised
to do. Tester was starting a 124 300D with the test units and a battery 
that was at 2 volts.

My mech has a Matco version and one of the other mechs in the shop has

Both do a great job on MB's and Bemmers they work on.
He did my E320 2 years ago. These work like a charm cuts down on time

Also he suggest to mix the coolant and the distilled water before you

Max the link that was posted works.
Last night I did a Win 7 to 10 upgrade using a USB drive created with 
the M/S app.

This was the 15th I've done in the last 2 weeks.
If you run the setup from a running system it will keep all your 
programs and data in place.
If you wipe the drive and do a New install of 10 you will need the Win 7 
product key from

your system.
So far I've only had one system that the upgrade would not take. Kept 
giving me a "System

Security Issue" message.
Remember the up date will be lateral. Home to Home Pro to Pro.
Any questions send me an email.

got 38mpg between BHM and TYS and that was running 75~80 thru thru hills.

there is no direct way to drain the TC. So I’m wondering if the best way to 
clean it out is to buy some cheap bulk fluid, dexron or whatever, then run a 
coupla drains and refills through before I put in the new filter then another 
dose of clean fluid. That would dilute the old stuff pretty well but unless I 
used “better” fluid to do the process it would get diluted quite a bit on just 
the last fill.

What do shops do when they flush and refill?  Some kind of machine that somehow 
can flush out the TC?  How does that work?  Are there some kind of fittings?

Re: [MBZ] Locked Computer

2019-06-18 Thread Russ Williams via Mercedes

You won't find a Win Activation Code sticker on the bottom.
And you can't use a program to get it off the computer.
Win10 uses a digital ID that is stored on MS's servers.
Download the Win10 iso create a dvd or stick. Wipe the drive during
instillation. When asked for a product key chose I Don't Have One option.
After installing do all the updates. By this time 10 will talk to the 
servers

and activate with the digital license.
You can use Ultimate CD to get the version of Win 10 that's installed.
10 will ask what version you want during the install process.
Any questions feel free to email me and I'll answer.

Current and former ratepayers of South Carolina Electric and Gas will split
$146 million in what is considered the largest private class-action
settlement in state history.

News outlets report a judge finalized the decision Tuesday. More than 1
million customers were involved in the lawsuit, represented by 13 law firms.

The attorneys sued SCE and parent company Scana Corp. for its role in the
abandoned construction of two nuclear plants in the state that never
generated power. Virginia-based Dominion Energy Inc. took over the utility
in January.

SCE agreed to pay $115 million and sell properties valued at $85 million.

The attorneys who argued the case will get $51 million plus nearly $900,000
for expenses.

It's unclear when SCE customers will get paid and how much each customer

Vehicle cooling systems are fairly simple, we have covered nearly every
aspect of them in various articles here over the years, whether it is
diagnostics, servicing, or even just general knowledge of how they
function, you can find it on the Know How Blog. When you learn about
something new, you feel the need to share it, and that is what brings us
here now – a new tool that helps you service your vehicle’s cooling
system. The AirLift Kit radiator vacuum tool from UView.

(continued on the web page)

-

Basically, it's hardware that attaches to the radiator cap's spot and
pulls a vacuum on the cooling system using a venturi vacuum pump. Once
you have a vacuum pulled on the cooling system, you connect a jug of
antifreeze and let the vacuum pull it into the cooling system.

The cost, $219.43, puts it in a category for professional mechanics, but
one could rig up something for less than that.

Re: [MBZ] Clay's tire issues could be resolved with this

2018-01-29 Thread Russ Williams via Mercedes
When I bought SWMBO's 240D it had steel rims on it. Along with a set of 
bunts

that someone had cut the tires off and left the bead on the rim.
Three of the steeles had dents along the bead lip. It had fairly new 
rubber on them.

I decided to swap the rubber to the bunts.
A friend had  the HF tire machine we mounted it to a 1" T shaped piece 
of plywood.
Stand on the leg portion of the T put tire on machine pull handle pop of 
the bead

used a recp. saw to cut the bead.
Cleaned up the bunts and used a HF powder coating sprayer with the HF 
sliver power
coating. Bunts came out looking good. Thp HF paint is almost a match for 
the original

The biggest issue then is where to install it. If need be, I
think it could be bolted to a 4X4 square of plywood so that it
could be used without permanent installation in one's garage.

Might work, but there is a _lot_ of force applied.  Something more
secure than a loose piece of wood may be required.

The wood isn't effectively loose if you're standing on it while you operate the 
machine. That way it's self contained with the tool and the power source on the 
same platform.
Then the only question is whether the wood is strong enough to transmit the 
force from the base of the stand to your feet. I'm thinking the plywood should 
be about an inch thick.

Re: [MBZ] OT diagnosing 2-stroke engine issue

Unfortunately there are now several carb adjustment screw heads on outdoor 
power equipment which are designed to not be able to be turned with common 
tools. Most of them are somewhat available to purchase, one or two were not the 
last I knew.

People started slotting the screws with dremel cutoff wheels, so the carb 
makers started recessing the screws in tunnels in the carb body so you had to 
slot the carb body too. It's as if they want your two stroke engine to run lean 
and seize so they can sell you another one.

While we sat there waiting for the light to cycle he kept looking over

Re: [MBZ] OT: Cobalt Milk Shake??

2017-04-07 Thread Russ Williams via Mercedes
Flush the system with nothing but fresh water. Then replace with Dexcool 
only.
If the Dexcool has not been changed since it was built in '08 you have 
major damage
to the cooling system. Dex. tends to go to the acidic side after 3 years 
after 5 years
it's depleted and goes to the High side of the Ph scale and starts to 
eat pinholes
in the aluminum  cores of the radiator and heater. Try to get the 
Pre-mixed Dexcool.
If you can't then mix it with distilled H2O only. Dex doesn't play nice 
with city or

well water.
I was at a friends shop last week he had a 2010 Vette in that needed a 
new radiator
and heater core. Seems the Cheby stealership charged him to change out 
the Dex but
never did. Ph was 7 on the stuff that frends tech drained out of the 
system. Owner
now if fighting with the stealership and Cheby Regional Office for them 
to pay for the

repairs.

I don't know where to get a 'good' LED PS.  Most assemblies have them
built-in.  Consider that our lowly 48" fluorescent shop lights eat bulbs
like crazy.  They have cheap electronic ballasts in them.  The old-school
fixtures with magnetic ballasts in them have never needed a new bulb, and
they run on the same circuit and with the same bulbs.  (The ballast is the
bulb power supply.  Current-limited mid-voltage while running, with HV and
bulb-warming starting capabilities too.)

LED's also need power supplies, but radically different.  (Well, the
current-limiting is sort of the same.  But the rest is all different.)
  Except for incandescents, line power is NOT a good match for ANY lighting
technology.  (Well, maybe EL, but that's dim, and green...)  Even that,
maybe.  Seems like around 6-12V is optimum for incandescents, so a simple
transformer power supply is their PS.  (The longer thinner filaments for
higher voltages are kind of fragile.  But automotive headlights
successfully put up with a lot of crap.)

Rewiring them is a piece of cake. You just cut out the Ballast and wire 
the Hot & Neutral to the tombstones on one end.
i replaced the tubes from Home Despot 40 bucks for 2 the ballast that 
was in the fixture was bad and was going to be
over 40 to replace. Toggled is the brand they sell. I got Daylight 
(5000K) bulbs. You can find the LED bulb kits cheaper on the net.
It took me 30 min to change out mine that was from the time I went to

2 years ago I replaced he transformers in the four tube light assembly over 
the sink. The last few weeks sometimes one, sometimes two of the bulbs on the 
same shared transformer didn't come on until I twisted one of them in its 
sockets.
Yesterday I found that just touching the glass in the middle of the tube was 
all that was needed to make it come on. I've done that repeatedly and every 
time the tube(s) light up as bright as usual.
The only thing I can think of is some sort of capacitance effect that lets weak 
voltage/amperage from the dying transformer ionize enough of the gas to 
complete the circuit.
The primary cause is probably the Chinese transformer from Home Depot since 
neither of the new bulbs is affected.

It's an interesting website. For example, currently it shows

wind from several directions.
The website also shows other aspects of moving weather patterns which

hash.

How do dat in winders I can hear you Linux guys laughing now...

I searched about a bit, discovered CertUtil tool, accessible via the CMD

just fine...

Next I chatted with the tech support folks for the device and "Juan" 
(who's

third-party crapware that I had installed years ago, once I had

that crapware the upgrade ran just fine.

dual ice makers, they have one in the door and one in the bottom 
freezer.  We do not use bulk ice that often but when we need it, it 
would be great to have it.  In my little bit of research I am tending 
to lean toward Samsung or LG. The Whirlpool/Maytag/GE seems like they 
are way more expensive than what you can get from LG/Samsung.  Anybody 
have any refrigerator experience they would like to share?  Online 
reviews seem to be no help really.  Any website I find seems to be an 
advertisement for 1 brand or the other.  Also, Lowes seems to be 
having a massive sale that lasts a few more days.

Re: [MBZ] Shop cooling

2016-06-29 Thread Russ Williams via Mercedes
According to my next door neighbor who is a HVAC man R22 is over 600 
bucks for a 30# bottle.

R22 is obsolete now though isnt it?  And very expensive to find like R12?

Is it the inside and outside unit or just the outside unit?  I would 
need both I would guess.

I could probably mount the inside unit up in the rafters somehow, 
or worse
case just have it in a corner somewhere.  What size unit do you 
think I
would need for said size of shop?  New 2 ton units can be had for 
around 2k
or so.  I see several used ones on CL too.  I would probably try 
to find a
decent used one if I went this route.  IF buying a used one what 
does one

need to look for as far as ratings etc?

Re: [MBZ] Testing Link Break

2016-05-30 Thread Russ Williams via Mercedes

That's your problem.
Outlook enters a CR after 80 characters. Older versions of Outlook you 
could change that
but when Microscrew starting using Word as the editor they took away 
that option.

Firefox on the other hand is Smart enough not to do that.

David,  Can you tell me the trick to prevent links from breaking

I'm not David, but inserting the link between the less than, greater
