I'm buying a 04 cummins tomorrow with my white privilege though. Guy was also tired of dumb questions and "I'll pay cash and have a trailer" was the winning comment.
I wish i had a tree line of old useless crap Iím never gonna fix. I grew up in a normal residential area and couldnt stock pile junk so pretty much had to scrap or sell everything i had once i was done with it. Looking at what parts are going for on 70s and 80s trucks i almost feel bad for all the stuff I throw out . But Iím sure this happens to every generation. I bet thereís a bunch of people who are kicking themselves for selling their 70s Dodge Challenger for $50 in the 80s

I did save a lot of random parts mostly drivetrain stuff, never saved any interior parts

My company recently rebuilt all the cable car gearboxes, and just commissioned one of the last ones a few weeks ago, so I'm no stranger to that area...biggest sad thing for me is that Jack's at the Cannery closed

So why not put a normal grease fitting on it with some sort of grease tube so they don't have to climb on top of an agitator to grease it?

not to speak for him, but reengineering things is dangerous
even if it is objectively better in every way after the changes, once lawyers get involved, it is the maintenence guy's fault it failed, because he cobbled an automatic grease pot onto the perfectly engineered multi million dollar system

This is the point where your argument went off the rails. They'll argue the whatever they need to, till either they're paid to stop or you're broke.

That being said, I'd just fix it.

No Joke. I had a 55 T Bird when I was 18. Porthole hardtop and continental kit and all.

My Dad hated Fords! When I had a brake problem with it, and was in college, I parked it at his house so I could fix it my first weekend off. It took a few weeks.
I worked most weekends!
Came home to replace all the brakes and he had sold it for $1500.

He handed me the money and told me to go buy something else. As long as it wasn't a Ford. So I bought an AMX Javalin. That didn't go over well either.
Yep, it's a FKN Rambler Dad!

I ended up eventually buying a Datsun 2000 and drove it to Texas when I moved out for good.

I'd give my left nut to have the T Bird and AMX back. The AMX was FAST!

Now I've got the yard full of old projects and love it. Wife, not so crazy about it, but as long as they are out of sight behind the shop she onlly fusses about them when she mows the grass back there. Which isn't often!!!!!

Don't pump water from a transfer tank into your diesel tank while on vacation and pulling a 5th wheel.

Just take my word for it.

Took my son's clapped out 2nd gen Camaro to the drag strip over the weekend. Was expecting to run 16s, so when I ran a 15.4 @ 92 mph I was pretty happy. Can't wait to get some gears and a posi in that thing.

Yankees and all other foreigners out themselves by saying "it's so hot" and complaining. I love this weather, 12+ hours of daylight and sunshine. I'm pretty much in just shorts all summer.

I grew up in Sunol. Cool little getaway from the East Bay madness surrounding it. Not much for tourist attractions unless you are into hiking and whatnot.

Before you western folks start bitching... yes it's damn hot in the desert. You can't breathe. Your car interior is melting. Yes, it's awful. But anywhere in the deep south not on a coast is a special kind of awful.
It is the UV that will kill you out here in the high desert. 11+ all the time, I swear I can smell my skin cooking some days.

I'll do it for you for cheaper then your company is going to have to spend sending you.

I'll just throw in some big expensive sounding words with something or other 22222222 double roller bearing needs a rebuild, why didnt you dumbfucks grease the thing.

Sounds simple enough

They announced my new boss today. Nothing unexpected. Best internal candidate for sure.
We generally get along great so no worries there.

Mid way thru the day he came in to chat about me looking to transfer (posted a couple weeks back on that...), trying to convince me to stay and understand why i want to leave. He stayed fairly laid back in the discussion but i suspect he'll start pushing a little harder in the upcoming week(s) as he wants to continue the conversation.

I explained it to my previous boss i'm starting to feel like a frog in a pot of water that is beginning to boil as i've progressed at the location i'm at.
I don't dislike it where i'm at most days, but i'm not generally happy and i've found myself being more and more negative than i'd prefer. My goal is to transfer into a group i worked in previously that i enjoyed to get back what i feel i've lost. May be a pipe dream as it's been 6+ years and people/culture changes, but i think it's the right call if another position comes available. For now my search is limited to that group, and i'm on a list for candidates for any new positions that come available.

Definitely makes me feel good they want to keep me but i honestly don't know why. IMO i'm doing shit work currently and can't right my ship which doesn't help with my happiness at work.

There is potential for another good promotion if i stayed here, nothing directly said today but implied if you read between the lines of the conversation. This would set me on the path of my goals i had. Just not sure it's worth it if it comes to fruition and i'm also at a point where i don't think this is a path i necessarily want anymore.

We make good money, can afford to enjoy our hobbies. Would it be nice to make more? Sure, but i'd be content moving away to recollect myself in a new position & facility to try and get back what i feel i've lost.

I have no specific career goals, i'm flexible. I'm willing to try about anything and am not someone who says no. I want to move up, progress, and take on additional responsibilities just not sure really past that the type of jobs i want to do which makes it a bit hard.

I got promoted at work the other day. Really humbled that they picked me out of the possibilities, internal promotion so no application.
I really bust my ass for this company, always looking out for the betterment of everyone so I'm stoked that it payed off.
I know, cool starry bra.

Ever try to tell a German that what they are doing is not the right way to do it? You should try is some time. It is a fun process.

To them the zerk fitting is fine, you just have the wrong grease gun. There is no problem

If you read the manual (most likely only in German) it says about greasing the zerk.

Making changes/subs from the parent company can be a royal pita. But by the same token sometimes its easier to just change it yourself and go on with life.

We do it all the time now. 'can we do X'-- no -- ok -- do it anyway
