howdy, for a start, i'd check the voltage of the battery before starting. that voltage should read better than 12.6. after starting and with engine reving is should read 13 volts or better. if the voltage is low before starting , it could very well be that a cell has gone bad with the winter rest i'm assuming it had. if the after start voltage is low you could have charging issues. disconnect battery cables and clean and re-attatch then check the fuse connections in the positive connection lineand ground connections. you may find the problem that easily and it is a good start to seeing the battery and charging circuit health.

howdy Kat i am certainly glad you knew i was trying to be funny. it has been pretty good weather here for riding untill yesterday and today and i kinda get saucy when the weather is good. a couple inches of rain like we have had the last couple days will dampen ones enthusiasm.. they said "hang in there, things could be worse" i did and they were.

howdy, it occurs to me it would be appropriate to contact the species you are trying to represent and simply have them send a delegate. this would save the considerable effort you are doing to simulate so difficult an appearance. lotsa miles and smiles to ya ken
howdy , yeah they get like the old mare my sisters used to ride and only gallop when headed TO the barn. it was my job to convince her that galloping upon command was required no matter which direction they were headed.

howdy yeah howdy
hey leo, mine was the rambler rebel with the 290 which was a ford 289 block. great fuel mileage and great car. the two 401 engines i had were in buicks . one was a '60 model and the other a '62. either would get 18 miles a gallon and i remember a lady and i traveling from idaho to missouri and when i got tired she drove. i set the "mileage minder" on 115 mph cause it wouldn't go any higher. she kept waking me up with the danged clanger bell that said we were exceeding 115 mph. the rambler i liked was the '50 model with the front "clicker" seat that would lay down flat and turn the whole interior into a great bed. i used to "camp" in that parked in front of the house in town. wasn't being 8 years old and feeling safe , wonderful?

howdy, sweep that soot up leo so that ice doesn't turn so black-----
i'm with ya on most of what ya say and those younger that haven't seen the things we have seen and the "good" changes and the insanity they have wrought, should seek out the older ones and learn the stuff that doesn't translate into 'a's but into good living and love for your neighbor and the most happiness for everyone.

howdy, yup, i'm all in favor of reducing our impact on the environment but when you have regulations to enforce regulations to enforce regulations................ somethin' needs a brain to see that we're going to regulate ourselves off the planet...... and that is what some want......
not political or religeous or ethnic just fact or imagined fact or....
howdy, response only to news coverage. in our area the news media goes way above and beyond to cover anything nice that the police individual officers do. i have noticed in our area a tendency for the police to shoot first and ask later. if they have been allerted that there is a gun at the residence or in posession of anyone in the area that person can expect to be shot no matter whether they are the good guy or the bad. i would have to guess that is a conscious policy of the local police departments. afterward, there is a week while the department tries to spin the coverage to make it appear there was provocation that resulted in the wounding or killing of those injured.
this is just observation and only where i see the local situation.
howdy, i hope the move is more beneficial than experimental. have you checked into pods where they deliver a box to you address which you fill and they come pick it up and deliver and you unload it where you are moving to. it is i think pretty reasonable and efficient.
