    That sounds like the right way to do it.

    Exclamation

    i worked with a guy who used to work for the state in the late seventies doing road maintenance and he also was in charge of the snow plows when we had snow. he told me it got awful cold in the ford plows. i asked him why it got cold he said the ford plows had the distributor at the front of the engine and when they plowed it would send the snow right on top of the front of the hood where it would melt from the engine heat and get the distributor cap wet and cause the engine to sputter and stall. so they would hook a chain from the front of a regular truck to the ford plow and have them tow them and do there plowing and because the motor wasnt running in the ford plow it would get awfull cold. i told him havent you ever heard of spraying the inside of the cap out with wd-40 and then using silicone around the bottom of the cap to seal all the moisture out. he said i thought wd40 was for rusty bolts. i said wd40 means water diplacement on the 40th try. he said what does the silicone do i said it will seal the cap and keep water from getting inside. he said oh that would be to much trouble. i guess they would have rather froze half to death plowing the road instead using a little common sense. all i could do was laugh

    yep i can see how it would be soo much essayer to hook up chains and pull the plow all winter instead of fixing the problem.
    i'll bet they cant drive anywhere when it's raining cuzz its too hard to turn on the wipers ????
    boy thats some real winers there. great use of Tax $$. pay one guy to pull another all winter long just to keep from spending $4 a truck to fix it. not to mention the extra ware and tear on the other trucks.
    some people just cant be helped.
    thanks for the help
    ......or..........
    hope i helped

    feel free to shoot me an e-mail direct i have time to chat. james@newyorkmetalart.com

    Just when you think you have seenit all or heard it all there is a new one. ROTFLMAO

    I cannot get it across to my business partner that cutting without goggles damages your eyes. I finally got him to start using gloves and faceshield when I told him the company didn't pay for injuries caused by your own stupidity, especially failure to use PPE. Still can't get it across to him about wearing long sleeves and that arc rays cause skin cancer too. Something he has already had to deal with. He was a safety officer and investigator on the last construction project we were on before we went on our own thanks to Ken Lay and ENRON.

    how about this one, if my wife new that i was telling this she would be soooo mad...lol

    on the 4th of may i was rear-ended whike going to the tool store to get a set of brushes for my chop saw, no biggie. while that vehicle was in the shop and i was on my way to many doctor's visits, about 14 days later, to be exact, i was rear-ended again. i was driving my wife's brand new chevy HHR. it was driveable, so i drove it home. when i got home, i was scolded by my wife for following too close. "that is why you got rear-ended twice" she said. i almost laughed but kept it in. the next day she appologized for jumping me about wrecking her car, she said that she realized that neither ws my fault. i still tease her about following too close because she might get rear-ended...lol
