A technical question, since we're on the subject: has anyone ever rebuilt at 4hp Briggs & Stratton lawnmower engine? I hit a stump and bent the crankshaft, the damned cheap piece of junk. I was thinking I'd just take the crank out and hammer on it in my vice until it looked straight. If I can't straighten it that way, maybe I'll just reverse the mower blade, as I bent the ***** out of that too, and maybe the imbalance of the bent blade might counterbalance the bend in the crankshaft, thus smoothing out the vibrations from the bent crank. I figure I could save a few bucks that way, huh?

Oh, and since someone asked, I've always been more of a dog person than a cat person.

I think I'll grill up some steaks for dinner Friday night. I've got a good Cabernet (it even has a cork) that needs drinking.

That puppy listing is SCAM! I saw the same exact listing on Craig's List last week.

Please don't part out that puppy. I think if you put it in a garage under a cover for the next 20-30 years it might be worth something.

I never did like the 4 cylinder puppies. Now the v-8, that's a beautiful puppy. It's got quite a woof.


To get back on topic, I think a monkey would be a great pet. I mean, wouldn't it be awesome to have an assistant mechanic that works for bananas?

This thread must hold some sort of record.
And not once did we use the words: Alpha Romero or V-8 in an Alfa.

Now back to my original question: What weight oil is best to use for a green Alfetta.

That depends on the color green. If it's AR 223 then go with 10W40.
