  1. Steve and I are just being car nerds.😁
  2. Would this be a good time to mention the Volkswagon Beetles with the Automatic Stick Shift? :)
  3. I disagree w/Teraflex. I think you have a stuck caliper. They are designed to "float" when the brakes are released. applying the brake causes the caliper piston to move towards the disc applying the inner pad, The caliper then moves backwards bringing the outer pad into contact with the rotor. (Equal/opposite reaction). When the brakes are released, slight lateral of the rotor pushes the caliper away as well as the disc piston seal relaxing which retracts the inner pad. Chances are the caliper slide surface on the knuckle is dirty or possibly worn, same for the caliper itself.
  4. Wonder if they make these in Wrangler? @theksmith LOL
  5. I love looking at old mining machinery that has been abandoned in place. This mine and mill is in pretty good shape. I thought it was cool how all the following pics fit together This engine drove this small pulley which turned the big drum which turned these gears There was more stuff driven by the belts in the ceiling. Check out the size of the timbers in the building. Definitely not grown in the Yuma area.
  6. @Ladybug Remembering the Kofa trip where they were doing the sheep jokes. Hilarious!!
  7. Ken was a nice guy. RIP friend.
  8. I've got that same engine hoist, bought it to move my spare engines/transmissions when I moved here. Its come in handy several times since, but even folded it takes up space.
  9. I shared my pics on a FB group for exploring Az and someone shared the location of some more indian ruins. They are on the hill just above the road near the mine ruins. They are about 200ft in elevation higher. Once I looked at the shared co-ordinates, I saw a bunch more ruins I didn't know existed. In the attached pic, if you look between the arrows marked Ruins, you will see quite a few. I also labeled the Mine office and Chimney for reference. Note: The photo is rotated with North on the left side of the screen. It is .25 miles from the chimney to the ruins marked with the yellow pin.
  10. @Lichen If you are talking about the Air Tags, they are intended to help you find things that you have misplaced or have been stolen. There are lots of Videos on Youtube about them. Here is one:
  11. Finally got around to installing some accessories on Bumble. First up: Tailgate table by Rough Country Next, a set of Roxblox mud guards for the front fenders ( thanks to @ob1jeeper ) And for my Ham/GMRS install, I bought a Bulletpoint mounting set up for the dash. I was able to reuse all the wire and cabling from Barbie, just had to purchase an Antenna mount.
  12. I thought this was going to be about Brake bleeding! 🤪
  13. Added my first Duck to Bumble. My Daughter gave it to me. She was so excited to have found a "Bumble Duck" to match the Jeep. And we found a plush Bumble at Hobby Lobby in the Xmas aisle.
