    Yeah, you've got enough of your own, I've heard :/
    What I find most interesting is how the entire English-speaking world seems to be suffering from the exact same crap even though we are separated by an entire planet, and a few different cultures. I am wondering what is the common factor?

      They are people.
      Lately, I have been considering the fact that life is now sufficiently easy for so many people, that one can actually thrive without having to learn, know, or understand much of anything at all, All you need to know is how to manipulate people well enough to gain popularity (and take their money). Curious indeed.

        That fact is thousands of years old........... Back then you did have to know how to win fights.

          Conceptually similar, perhaps, but hardly the same phenomenon as I was referring.

            It's strongly related to things you can't control, such as parents and neighborhood conditions. Some have criminal records for minor offenses, like drug possession, and others are coerced into crime by gangs who would otherwise do harm to you or family members. Sometimes police can be corrupt. Privilege can also involve access to good lawyers who can obtain plea deals and other ways to avoid or expunge a criminal record.

              It is very easy to get a criminal record, even to be on death row for a crime you know nothing about. Look like the wrong person, have the police do a "geofence search" and find your 'phone, etc, etc. Police as a rule keep after the person they arrest, even to deep-sixing legitimate testimony that you were elsewhere..

              I suspect a lot closer to your meaning than you might think. Check history

                Now I’m thinking of a generator to protect the freeezer..
                Yeah, I love the Sears name. I grew up with the name if not the tools (Kenmoore driers). No, we didnt have any sears tools, Broke folks . We did have the big Fat catolouge though. Wish Book,,, JR

                  Clevelands have weak oiling systems, they need to have an external line run to the cam.

                      So my issue is finding a “long block”. Hell, maybe I’ll tell him to get an available short block and build up from there.

                        Why not just buy a complete engine and rebuild it however you want it?

                          Here's a case of "mistaken identity" I just read about.

                            That’s another option. Between going to work, working on the rental property, and the fact the truck is up in Maine and not where my own shop is in Florida, it’s best I have some one else do it. At least get it driveable. I’m going to re-arrange my shop to keep the middle open so I can work on it.

                              "Pie in the Sky"

                              That was from way back. You will do just as I have done. Build up for the project (pie in the sky) and never get to it. Dont be that, Me. Mr,,, JR

                                With street engines it was rare to run into the problem except when neglected. It mostly showed up during extended high RPM runs.
