So pretty much feeling back to normal after shot 2. Decided to mow the lawn so I can devote my Sunday to playing golf. Well 30 minutes in and the lawn mower decided it was time to retire. Mower overheated and shut down. I let it cool down for a half hour and it started.  Check the oil level then mowed for 10 min and shut down again. But the John Deer mower lasted 22 years. 
Looks like $4k to replace it.  Need a big one for 5 acres of mowing. Have an appointment on Monday with a dealer. 
 

22years is a good run. John Deere great product.

I had two reactions....sad about the mower checking out....but the happy reaction to get to shop for another tractor overtook the sad!  😁  I am still loving the late 80's Deere 332 I have.   Not as quick as a Z turn but I really like the old diesel engine that just keeps running & running!  The good thing about Deere is the parts....I can still get parts for that tractor, I just rebuilt the deck pulleys, bearings and spindles last fall!  And for sure...to replace what I've got with an equivalent tractor today would be about a $4k price tag.

Sigh.

Took the car to my mechanic. He replaced the spark plugs and coils--cylinder still misfiring. So this is a bigger problem.

I bought it from a dealer near Green Bay, which is 3.5 hours away. This is going to be a pain.

Compression test, I'm really hoping it's not a dead cylinder or a dropped valve.

Agree, that would tell him if it is more a mechanical issue internal to the engine, or something else like a fuel injector or some other type of electrical component which may be acting up

Compression test is good, leak down test even better. Also depending on the age of the car, the dealer's diagnostics (more detailed then consumer) could yield a lot of info.

I mow well over an acre here and my L130 is still going but about 14 years old.  If it goes kaput, I'm switching over to a zero-turn. Those things are grass eating monsters.

Having a bad day or something is not quite right? Let it out here and you may or may not feel better. :D 

 

 

 

I had a buddy who just sent me a text asking if I wanted to play golf around 1:00 p.m. today. I had to tell him maybe, because my wife may have to go out of town and someone has to be home as the Samsung Repair man is coming.   :angry: 

 

We have one of those on the list where the washing machine lid could potentially blow off!   Anyways one of their service reps is coming out today to repair it.  The good thing is it's totally covered via Samsung as it should be.  No more of them washers for me as I have already had two previous issues with it.  One being under warranty and the last one being a stabilizer bar breaking which happen right after warranty had expired. :angry: 

I almost bought a new washer. However, a coworker said "don't do it".  Since then I've heard a lot of horror stories about the newer generation of machines. So I'm keeping my old top loader until I can't find parts

... Fans are a strange bunch and can be amazingly stupid. I over heard a bunch of fat white guys in the parking lot here in Phoenix arguing over trading Kyler Murray and starting over with a new QB in the draft because he could not get the Cards into the play offs. All but one agreed, Murray has to go. I had to shake my head at just how ignorant fans can be.

Oh oh, just got a new Maytag washer delivered yesterday. The GE was becoming a project.

Amazing isn't it?  

One of my favorite things about the NFL season returning is the fan calls to Buffalo WGR550 following preseason games.  It makes me wonder why there is SO MUCH HIDDEN TALENT SITTING ON THEIR COUCHES while those in the front office are clueless idiots 🤣

Love a good zero turn. Used one for landscaping back in college and I almost want a overlynlarge lawn just so I can get one for myself.

Same with Raiders fans wanting Derek Carr gone. I'm not a huge Carr fan, but he's at least top 10 in the league... maby top 5. He does well with protection and weapons. Take those away and he's still above average.

I sold my house 18 months ago and with it, two year old Samsung washer/dryer... the new kind.  I was actually happy that the new owners wanted me to leave them.  The new(er) house I bought has an older pair of Speed Queens, and I love them.  Smaller capacity but better cleaning.  

I don't understand how they can say the new models are more energy efficient and save water.  The wash cycle on the older Speed Queen is 15 minutes less than the newer Samsung; I had to run an extra rinse on the Samsung to get the soap out.
