Harbor Freight part numbers for speed wrenches (will fit into 18" long tool box):

3/8" # 65965 for $6.99
1/2" # 95992 for $6.99

As one option, 7 piece swivel impact sockets

3/8" # 67929 for $24.99
1/2" # 67913 for $39.99

Another option is the pair of wobble adapters

3/8" & 1/2" # 67922 for $2.99

Then purchase a mid length 3/4" socket at Sears. The shallow ones are too short for good purchase on the Hensley hitch lift arms. A deep well 3/8" drive would work.

I can not generate enough leverage with the speed wrench for the complete adjustment of the Hensley screw jacks and revert to it's supplied ratchet for final adjustment.

In this day of plastic junk, this water meter is the real deal- solid brass casing. It may be the same as the water meter in front of our home. Anyway it weighs 5 lbs. Maybe I can lose 5 lbs, so the total weight we are carrying can be the same. Looks like it will be real easy to hook up.

Dan,

Can you zero it or is it just a running total?

The fancy Honda tach/hour meter took a dump after only 200hrs.


Found a quality Hardline replacement on Amazon for half the price.
Easy one wire install too.

I converted to LPG five years ago. Finally got around to installing an external gasoline petcock. Makes it much easier to switch back and forth. Figured if I have dual use it only makes sense to be able to use both if needed. Plus it's quicker to run the carb out and drain for storage.

You can't zero it- just a running total.

We installed window film. It isn't perfect, but it is much cooler inside! It cost us $30 (from Lowes). We will probably have it professionally done next Spring.

And....Midge got her personalized plates!

We were all prepped and ready to head to Estes Park today, but the weather isn't cooperating. The flooding is horrible up there! We have rescheduled for two weeks from today. Hope the roads are passable by then. My heart goes out to everyone affected by this horrible storm.

Sparkly storage cube

Today I was minding my own business when this sparkly cube jumped off the shelf and into the cart! It will be used next to the door for shoe storage and then presto it becomes an ottoman when slid over about 8"!

Hmmm... I like this idea.
