    Not a great day here in Austin. We went out to start up the vans and get some work done today, but our van decided to get cantankerous. Started it up and there was a serious "rattling" noise. Went to shut it off, and while the engine quit running, the rattling noise continued. I even pulled out the key at one point and the rattling continued. After a few minutes for turning it on and off, the engine quit and the noise ended.

    We suspect that the "rattling" noise might have been the starter. When I would turn off the key and the engine stopped but rattling continued and then turned the key back on, the engine would restart immediately. At any rate, the van has been towed to a Ford dealer, but it will be midweek of next week (according to their estimates) before we can get the van back. So, we get to sit around for a number of days.

    It was a beautiful day up here at Grand Lake today. Sunny and 74 degrees. Even took the boat out for a couple of hours. It ran like a top.

    I actually built my own from a plastic drum Our front yard was covered in weeds when we purchased the house many years ago and silver maple trees in the front yard.
    I took those out and scalped the yard with a bagger mower and tilled the yard and the boulders of dirt clods were horrible.

    The homemade roller crunched them down and leveled the yard a bit so I could plant grass.
    My back yard is covered with cars and various supplies for whatever but i like to keep a nice looking front yard so no one suspects Jethro Bodine lives here with Fred Sanford.

    That looks like a nice day on the lake beautiful picture.
    Wish I was out fishing.

    Had a thought of installing my 3.00 gears in the 57 chevy for more friendly highway cruising than the 3.70's that are in it.

    Well yesterday the rearend let go.
    I got it apart and lost a few axle bearings ..those got into the gears and killed it.
    Never had that happen.
    Searching now for the right 9" ford axle bearings and going to dig out some of my spare center sections and see what is in them for gears.
    I had some 2.75 and 2.29 gears at one time..I should have my 3.00 and 4.56.

    I can think about fishing and getting the pontoon to the lake once that is fixed.
