It's cleaner kerosene and I imagine you guys can buy it for less than diesel if you know how. You can just filter it and burn it off in a diesel when you're done with it, or whatever.



I have good ideas for how to get the Jet A smell out of it afterwards too.

To clarify, I don't care about the smell, I just want it to not be super oily to the touch.

One had the septic field between the main drive and shop, what the actual fuck. And why can't a motherfucker make a strait driveway. Every single drive feels the needs to swoop left and right for no reason, with a slab wide enough for a model T. I'm up to about 20 hard no and 1 meh.

Bright side it was a good experience to show the woman what I need. It went from "but I like xyz, can we just take a look?" to "yeah, that's dumb". Nothing about this whole experience is exciting to me, but she is plum giddy about it. We're now down to just find a halfass decent house on 5+ acres, hoping some dipshit didnt make any improvements that I would to have to tear down.

My other problem is bad math. So the raw land is $100k, that's a $200k house on a good day, you want $400k why now? Nah, it makes no sense why it's been on the market for 9 months.

I have see 50 plus houses over the last 2.5 months looking for a house with a shop. I mean real shop, 2500+ Sq ft. I have found 1 with 1600 Sq ft that was worth a damn and it needed a new roof on a $300K+ listing price.

I keep telling the agent, 1600-1800 sq ft house with BIG shop and they have no fucking clue.

Started looking at land and a Barndominium as an alternate.
weird that you guys have been to so many that aren't in the realm of what you want. seems like it would be really easy to sort through those without going to see them in person.

I have a headache. Not sure when it started, between some burning plastic and carb cleaner in a poorly ventilated space and hitting myself in the forehead with a hammer, it just hasn't been a productive day.

should've stayed in bed

Then the Jet A will work perfect.

You could also just buy some heptane brake cleaner and rinse it out with that.

I was riding my lt500 when the chain jumped and jammed between the shifter shaft and swingarm. It turns out axle shaft bearings failed. So bearings are cheap hopefully it didn't tear up the housing and I should be able to straighten the shifter shaft. It also broke a tooth off of the front sprocket.

This is actually the first quad that I've had. I've had a dirt bike since I could ride. This thing had a cracked cylinder when I bought it so I put a new top end on it but after a few rides I am finding that everything is wore out on it.

On the lookout for the right house at the right price and I will build the garage as a second option.

Gotta have a plan A, plan B, plan C and plan D.

She had set up to look at a few properties and the realtor would go add on a couple more that just happened to be nearby. Now that we have a baseline and general understanding, I'm not leaving the couch without google earth, tax records, etc in hand. A few had a HOA that didnt allow livestock on several acre tracts. It was a surprise at every turn.

One place had a drive through 30x40 shop, but it was on the property line. Something pics didnt show. I'd be lucky to make the turn on a riding mower. I'm to the point to where all places with a shop are immediately thrown out. Somehow a $20k mueller building is a $50k addition. I'll just build it myself.

Just be ready to buy if you find the right place. We made a offer on our place the day it hit the market. Seller accepted that day also.

My Warrior 350 chain couldn't be adjusted anymore and it turned out it needed a new axle housing. Got a used one off ebay for around 100 bucks. When it threw the chain before that it broke a hole in the crankcase. JBWeld to the rescue. When I put it all back together it still threw the chain a few times so I cut a tensioner off an old XR500 Frame I got out of a scrap pile and put a skateboard wheel on the tensioner and welded it onto the warrior.

Chain has not popped off once since then.
