              First Bob tries to tell me what not to discuss (censorship)
              and then he attempts to correct me (rudeness)
              on something he is actually incorrect about. (ignorance)
              Don't go away mad, just go away.

                Thanks - it was the family car when I was a child and I first started driving it with my learner's permit in '74. Its been a fair weather car since I moved to MI in '85. While I was quite envious of others with 4 or 5 spd floor shift back when I first started driving, now I relish the three-on-a-tree. A few times I've had someone on a multi-lane road in stop and go traffic pace me to watch me shifting. The rest of the vehicles in the family fleet are all floor shift manual trans - including my wife's Fusion with a 6 spd.

                Back on topic, the replacement for the broken stud/socket has been ordered and should be here next Monday - then I can get the welder buttoned up and get ready for the next welding project - dismantling my existing 5x9 utility trailer, rebuilding the frame with 3x2 longitudinal members (currently 2x2) and replacing the axle Current axle started out in life as the rear axle from an early '70s Honda 600 automobile, cut and stretched with a tube in the center - I am frequently at or over the limit of what the axle might have carried in the air cooled Honda 600.

                  Yeah. Those connectors suck. I have replaced many of the. If it were me I would replace them with Dinse type connectors. Should be an easy retrofit.

                    Just how are they any better than Tweco? He's have to convert all his cables as well or use adapters (another place for corrosion to form).

                      The straight pin jacks that Miller used to use were marginal even when new IMHO. I wouldn't hesitate to replace them with Tweco.
