    Today's Butt Ugly Half Gram Nugget

    Why not use vinegar and salt? Takes longer, but the results are good, and safe.

    Heat the head in a oven and guides in a freezer and coat both with high temperature anti seize greese. Also use aluminum punches on the guides.

    All the stroker kits for Harley's came with shorter pistons with whatever compression you wanted.

    Next time put the hub in an oven and shaft in the freezer. So much easier.

    Gold, copper both melt around 2,000. Know of a deposit of copper ore that assay gold, and silver. It's worth more as a gemstone than separating the metals. Shellac and Johnson wax to preserve, left it for you.

    Meteors can cause fire

    Major meteorite labs state that most meteorites contain nickel/iron. Most does not mean all.

    Not a good idea to polish intake ports. Unpolished ports create more fuel and air turbinance, thus better fuel,air mixture.

  12. Sent you a PM. Moved to the desert in July 1974 from Michigan. No grass to mow no snow to shovel.

    In 1988 Mormon crickets were a mess in Brawley CA. Have also seen them in the Yuma Arizona area, but not so bad.
  14. Use only glass or stainless steel containers when out in the desert. Half teaspoon of raw vinegar and molasses with a couple drops of peppermint spirit, per quart. Do most my prospecting in the summer months in the southwest desert, black wool hat, dark color clothes and gloves for holding your moisture in which keeps one cool. My kids and I have spent months living in the desert in the summer months.

    Came to the Glamis CA area July 1974. Doug was a foreman on the railroad repair crew at the time General Patton was doing desert training. They all hated him because he only let his troops have one quart of water each day. Many troops died because of heat exhaustion, and were hauled away on boxcars. Where I collect my meteorites there are two land mines ready to go off if one stepped on them. Only way to the area is by foot, so I don't worry about them. Many old tank tracks in that area.
