  1. Re: Intermittent rotor/pad noise when turning

    If possible take a pic of the rotor roughness. That will help with the diagnosis.
    Things to consider:
    How worn are the pads?

    Re: Field day 2017

    Took my grand daughter to the nearest field day location. She was somewhat skeptical at first, but after a little bribery (promise of ice cream) she sat down and started to work it. Got a half dozen...

    Re: Since we are work on Jeeps....

    Absolutely worth it. Good mower, a little slow compared to a zero turn, but worth the effort to repair. Most likely the belt is the problem. Keep the blade sharp & you will love how nice it cuts.

    Re: Coolant Leak

    No preference. On the shop's dodge diesel truck (our heavy hauler) we found a nice aftermarket unit the size of a heater core that came with a ducted fan attached. I hooked up a switch/relay combo...

    Re: Coolant Leak

    Over the years I have seen lots of water pumps that leak only when hot, or only cold, or only when the cap is loose. If it leaks once, it will dump eventually. Put the pressure tester on it...

    DC shooting

    Something in the media coverage doesn't feel right/normal (??) about the DC shooting. Other than calling the weapon a 'rifle', no further public identification has been made available. In a town...

  11. Re: FAA rule to register drones struck down

    About a year or so ago we had a guy with a drone set up that he used at golf courses/country clubs. His business was set up around the drone flying over the course, hole by hole, videoing the hole...

    Nice story about a problematic drone flight:

    Be on the lookout for some unpleasant public reactions.
  13. Re: FAA rule to register drones struck down

    Last fatal aircraft accident in which I was involved, the on scene FAA investigator had never flown a plane, didn't know how a plane worked and didn't...
  14. Re: FAA rule to register drones struck down

    I figure Mr Trump is opening negotiations.

    When Reagan fired the PATCO folks, several of my friends were working at Aurora Center, and of course the Dumb A$$es thought Reagan was bluffing. He...

    Re: I've been there...

    When my work took me down trails, farm roads and I had to find creeks, steams, & other landmarks, I used to buy a DeLorme Gazatteer for the state I was working. The detail was amazing. I see that...

  17. Re: FAA rule to register drones struck down

    At home on the airplane patch we have hosted a lot of RC events so when the drones appeared on the scene nobody was too freaked out. It also helped that the first few drone enthusiasts were fellow...

    Re: Weird oil pressure

    Swap out the oil pressure sending unit, typically $25 & 15 minutes of work. Be kind to your hands & do it with a cold engine. OPSU's get wonky with old age, and are cheap/easy to replace.
