  • I'm not wealthy, but my union did negotiate business class travel on anything outside the 48 beyond 3 hours in length...
    First class on Delta, from LAX to Honolulu

    And for record, I rate Delta the best airline in the USA. American business class is #2, but only if business class.

        • I did a short one of those ROC-Natonal-ROC a month ago . First flight out in the morning, last flight in at night. 2 1/2 late.

              I take it those are the T bolts you made ?
              Not sure I would have heat treated them.. always good to do a test piece first..

                • I didn't realize that BMW used those. Are they built by GM and sent over or do they build there them under license from GM? I guess come to think of it BMW probably has a plant stateside in all likelihood.
                  Yeah that stuff does get smelly when toasted doesn't it.

                  • I was going to say they probably come out of Mexico but according to Wikki, they're build in Strasbourg, France. Who would have guessed?

                    I've rebuilt TH-350s in my hot rod past. Burned oil and clutches smell bad from any transmission.

                      Just one of the four,the other three are just fine.This isn't my first rodeo,mistake was quenching the T-bolts in water.The cross section was a tad too thin for that,Oil would have had no issues.These needed to be heat treated,this isn't a small machine,the soft bolts that were in there were yielding.
                      I just need one more tool,just one!

                        Depends on cross section,thinner cross sections are best done in oil,thicker in water.The tool post nuts did fine,the bolt cracked right where I thought they might.
                        I think I'm going to heat treat the new one quenching in oil and run all four through temper again,but at 1100F to see If I can't draw them down a bit.It kinda sucks having a good furnace,but no hardness tester.
