Title: Wife has more stuff than me
Post by: Rough Edge racing on February 18, 2019, 03:42:12 PM
 Yes, she has a garage full of toys, all of it old but toys are toys...She won't drive the 99 Cherokee in the winter, the 97  Suzuki quad for buzzing around the property.. 1986 John Deere Diesel lawn tractor and the other lump I just got for her... A beat up 2005  Yamaha Rhino 660 side by side..It needed a lot of work, ball joints, axle shafts, carburetor cleaning and so on...Supposedly the price was cheap enough.With the pick up bed and and suspension removed the Rhino looks like a bare frame.....She has got me slaving in the unheated garage , it's about 15F inside and out..I have a heated basement ride in shop for my bikes but the Rhino won't fit past the door...My wife says I worked outside in construction all my life so a few day in the cold won't hurt me...The Rhino has a 660 cc single cylinder liquid/oil cooled  five valve engine....The seller  thought it had a bad intake valve because it popped back through the carb..I lucked out, too tight valve adjustment on all three intakes...And the carb idle circuit need an adjustment..

I bought a 135000 BTU kero heater that does a fantastic job heating my frozen garage to comfortable temps in minutes.

You're lucky she's not into jewelry.   :cry:  Mine is.   :undecided:  Doesn't help when she sells it for a living.   :tongue:

   I don't mind working in the cold when it's suspension work and take the time to dress for it... Two pairs of socks, old jeans, flannel shirt, two hoodie sweat shirts, old Carrhart coveralls and jacket, insulated nitrile gloves with cotton liners. I may be 71 but I ain't too feeble to work in the cold when necessary.. :thumb:
  But....I would have no problem moving to a warmer climate..My wife has lived in this area here whole life and drags here feet at the thought of leaving...
