And now for something completely different!

Monty Python Ale! Excellent!

Holy Grail Bottled Ale! Tempered over burning witches! Yeesssss!

Monty Python's Holy Grail Ale

Monty Python’s Holy Grail Ale

This brilliant and bold addition to our flock was created to commemorate the 30th anniversary of one of our finest comedic exports – the Monty Python crew!

Years later and Holy Grail is still going strong. With more hops than a killer rabbit, it’s a full-flavoured golden ale with a distinctively fruity flavour followed by the Black Sheep signature dry finish. Be warned, this beer has been tempered over burning witches! Only joking. Black Sheep Brewery

Apparently this has been out for a while but somehow I managed to miss it. I have yet to get  my hands on these but I am trying diligently! I gotta have some! I may have a line on some and I will let you know how it works out. This is so way cool.

Just a way cool product.

Leave it to the Aussies to build a V8 powered chain saw

You know, we have seen some wild engine powered stuff but these guys at Whitlands Engineering are nothing short of spectacular. Check this bad boy out! The only thing missing here is Tim Allen and the Binford logo.

Now this is not the first by any means. Just a bit easier to handle than some other earlier US versions. These are part of the Unlimited V8 Competion Class Chainsaws. But no less impressive. Check out the US versions.

15 reasons why cars are less trouble than women

  1.  Go means go, stop means stop, left means left, right means right. Nothing is implied.
  2.  It’s perfectly fine to have more than one.
  3. The tire bill is considerably less than a woman’s shoe bill.
  4.  Aside from the fuel tank, its weight does not change.
  5.  If you don’t like it anymore, you can sell it and get another. (Without going through hell)
  6. If you take good care of it, it’ll look the same as the day you got it.
  7. Too change it, you don’t have to talk to it, you just MODIFY it.
  8. Even a LARGE heavy one, can look sexy. You can have fun inside it and no one will think you’re weird.
  9. You can redress it with a new body kit for less than the cost of a wedding dress.
  10. You can give it accessories whenever you feel like it, irrespective of birthdays, anniversaries, etc.
  11. It never asks questions about it’s rear.
  12. The airbags are not just for decoration, they save your life.
  13. Regardless of the time of day, season, day of the month, it is ready to give you a ride when you want it.
  14. Every year, it only asks for new oil, not jewellery.
  15. Ever now and then, you’ll be able to drive a friend’s one, without any guilt.

NOTE: These are just observations! I still like women but these observations make sense of why guys like cars. Just sayin! BzeroB

Trying to cure a nagging ignition stutter

65 Mustang Coupe

65 Mustang Coupe

My 65 Mustang has developed an annoying ignition stutter

Over the last couple of months I have been fighting a new problem that has appeared on the 65. It is what appears to be a stutter, or misfire, at speed. It is real worrisome when cruising at freeway speeds when you can feel it missing a lot. And has made me a bit nervous to take it out on long runs. I need to fix that!

At first we thought it might be a fuel delivery issue. We replaced the carb with another and no net effect. Starts way better but other than that it still stutters. The next thought was that the aging Pertronix ignition unit was a possible culprit. I went ahead and got another rebuilt points distributor and dropped it in. Timing is stable so I don’t see any issues with timing gears and the such. We will be taking it out for a couple of spins to verify that all is still the same.

I will be doing a simple compression test in the next few days to substantiate what I believe may be some burned or stuck valves. I am not sure but this is a definite possibility.  If the head is wounded I will get it reworked. With 80K it may be time to get it done. We shall see.
