    I bought cheap ones on eBay before. They stripped out. Back 10 years or so ago I actually got them from the GM dealer. Got raped on them but worked perfectly.

    I use a credit card for everything!! I have to spend the money anyway, I'd rather get a 1-5% discount on everything instead of paying cash or debit for it all!! Your leaving money on the table if you don't do it. Everywhere has the cost of useing credit into their purchases anyway (whether they say it or not) so you may as well get the discount to drop the price anyway.

    OK ,so my pickup(75K20)needs an engine . Lost number 5, no compression dead miss. NO TIME. Trying to keep grandson's 79 K10 going! 20 years ago son-in-law bought a 78 K20, drove it for 3-4 years and decided he was gonna "fix it up". It was a rust bucket all over so he took it apart' I mean TOOK it APART!! Cab ,fenders ,box, engine, transfer case, all in pieces. The only thing left complete was the turbo 400. Got aftermarket fenders, doors and tailgate. Sat for 8-9 years and finally decided to put it together. Didn't have a clue! He is/was a paramedic and had a friend 15 years older(my ex-brother-on-law) that would help him. My ex-bil was a really good guy and he's the only one in the ex-family I really liked. Anyway I knew he and I were gonna be the ones to get this thing together. On craigs list one day saw a 79 K10 for sale. Engine and trans in the bed. GOOD shape. Right!! Called, went and looked and it WAS in GOOD shape!! No rust anywhere. Bought it for $400 hauled it home and started on it. Talked son-in-law into a crate 350, he got the 400 rebuilt and good ole Ray(bil) built the t-case. Put everything together about 2 years ago and it runs awesome! Odds and ends to do. Finally about 2 months ago took the dash out cleaned up replaced all the bulbs and was putting it back together and spied an electrical connector and found out it went to the tach. All back together and waited for darkness and finally fired it and all the dash lights worked and the tach worked!!!! Wouldn't have guessed anything worked after all these years of sitting around. Anyway they drove it around and when cold weather hit, no defrost. I got it back last week and started looking, found there was no vacuum to the controls(a/c cab). Plugged it all back in and WOW Defrost works great, now. Eventually I will get it ALL sorted , so I can go back to mine

    Did nothing today.

    1. Because it's Sunday

    2. Because I went to a funeral for my friend "Miner Mike". In Tombstone we have a procession down Allen Street, the main historical street in Tombstone.

    It was the largest procession in Tombstone since the one in 1881 for the Cowboys killed NEAR the OK Corral, by the Earps and Doc Holliday.

    He was well liked and a good friend of Tombstone.

    Agreed. I have had 2 cards hacked, plus my bank account last year.:(

    No hassle with any of the cards nor the credit union, which amazed me.

    I use a debit card to pull cash out of an ATM and on rare occasions at a grocery store to get cash back.

    Otherwise, all credit cards.

    Got home and just got done with an oil change - of memory serves me the AC Delco filter is a PF1218 - Wally World no have- Advance was closed .

    So, Super Tech 10W40 conventional plus a Fram PH5.
    Ironically 10W40 syn blend was on sale for maybe 20 cents cheaper, but she leaks so why give her more incentive?:anitoof:

    I got to thinking that with the EFE pulled shut constantly and all that exhaust backing up into the engine, and contaminating the oil, that it was cheap insurance.

    So is that zinc additive- will hit Advance tomorrow.

    Chit is 1/2 the cost of my home grown oil change, but if I am right, this change will go to 3K.

    Been hacked on a debit card once. Account locked and only way to get money was at the bank till new card arrived. It was less than $1000 and I got it all back. Cards hacked many times and bank called or texted each time and blocked charge and reissued cards. Just the cost of the modern world. With the chips it seems to have slowed down, but you can still use a card without the chip sobi am not sure why?
