Re: What did you work on today?

I mowed the front lawn and then started working on the Plumbing for my air compressor. Still doing it.

I tore a head off my truck today also. It hadn't anything to do with the engine. It was a rock that flew up into the Clutch flywheel area and locked the Starter to the flywheel together.. Thing is,, I had a cover on it.?!

Re: What did you work on today?

Repacing trans fluid in the coupe, I really screwed up when I bought the locar dip stick for the trans, but it was done out of convenience, it kept it tight up against the fire wall, down low, out of the way, well when you combine BM trick shift (blue color) with the gray dipstick mann its hard to see....just one of those things......

Cracked Concrete Repair

I figure pretty much everybody has some cracked concrete that needs fixed, so I wanted to share this with you.

Our front patio concrete slab has a big crack that runs all the way across it. After a bunch of research and watching videos we found a product made by Sherwin Williams that works pretty darn good. It ain't cheap, but what is nowadays.

The product is Sherwin Williams Sher-Crete Polyurea Joint Filler http://www.sherwin-williams.com/home...-filler-86-oz/ . It's a 2 part epoxy that comes in a caulking tube. You use a caulking gun to dispense it. it's elastic when it is cured and it therefore will stretch and handle some future movement of the concrete.

I used a chisel to prep the cracks, removed all the loose concrete and used my air compressor to blow out all the loose pieces parts. I then used some old caulk we had to seal the opening in the bottom of the crack. This keeps the epoxy from running out of the crack because the epoxy when it is first dispensed is runny, but it cures in about 90 minutes. I also filled the deep cracks with caulk also, up to about 3/8" to 1/2" from the top of the concrete... You could also use some rope caulk or whatever... we just had a bunch of old caulk so we used that.

Our only complaint is why they didn't make "concrete crack repair epoxy" a "concrete" color? Seems like an obvious choice to us :-)

Re: What did you work on today?

We used the same type material at work John except the stuff we used was in a pour container if I remember correctly, when we sealed joints around the plant ( food processing ) they lasted forever, I can only remember doing it once in 20 years, worked there for 41....its great stuff..! The large joints where stuffed with a filler first like rope or cotton then filled to level..

Re: What did you work on today?

Well, back on the wiring for the 56........too hot to work outside, so i turned on the AC in the shop and got busy. I was having a tough time trying to get the front light grommet thru the firewall. Asked for advice on tri-five, and two guys said they put the grommet in boiling water for 2-3 minutes to soften it up. Wow! Last weekend I fought that grommet for a couple of hours, yesterday, I took it out of the boiling water, and it was very soft and pliable. I pushed the harness plug in to the grommet, pushed the grommet in at the hole in the firewall and it popped in to place. Have all the wires now run to the places they belong, and will start connecting lights next weekend.

Having been raised in Illinois and Wisc, I know what the freeze/thaw does, but here in Calif, it seems to be just as bad from the heat/cool down....!
