That sounds nasty.

How's the compression? I had a run in with a no start scooter. Turned out the valves needed adjusting. No compression equals no vacuum too.

As to pipe, if I can get away with it I'll use single wall, but with triple wall where it goes through the ceiling and roof penetrations. I'll also have an almost horizontal run before it goes through the ceiling so it'll dispense heat from the interior space run as well.

When I lived in a mud walled house in Afghanistan all we had for heat was a small single-wall vertical oriented barrel stove with a long single wall stove pipe. I'd feed that thing till it and the stove pipe glowed red. It heated the living room it was in pretty well, plus when it was red hot we didn't need to turn the lights on.

hope your house dont burn down cause if I remember right, unless a licensed flue installer puts it in, your home insurance will be null and void...so heads up

CANbus controlled for the OEM. Direct battery connected on aftermarket copies.

If I used anything that was single-wall, it'd only be in the shop (never in the house) and rest assured single-wall stove or pipes would be far enough away from combustibles that I wouldn't worry about a fire. ...triple wall fittings in the penetrations through the ceiling and roof though.

Anyone in the market for a little convertible?

Neighbor is selling his 1990 Mazda Miata
160,000 miles
all original, in VERY goodcondition.
He has replaced everything within the last couple of years

it developed an ignition miss in the last few days and he has decided to not put any more money in it.

He has over $7000 of repair and maintenance stuff in the last few years.

he wants $1600 for it.
starts and idles fine, but has a bad miss until you hit about 30 mph, then it pulls fine.

I have zero interest in another car project, just trying to help him get rid of it.

Those Miatas have a huge following of people that race them or go hit curvy roads on the weekends, I'd like to mess with one sometime but like you I'm not getting into another project.

Hey Ted if I want to just come out and ride White Rock Enduro do I have to pay all the AMA/Entry $$$$ or is there a way I can just ride sweep at the end to avoid slowing anyone down?

If not what's the best "Old Man Go Slow" category to enter?
Yeah you can just take off behind the racers and ride the course I think. I think our sweep crews are all good at the moment.

Chuck are you positive it doesn't have a fuel pump? BOTH of my Ruckus's quit running recently and it was the fuel pumps quit working. They would work just enough sometimes for the bike to run, sometimes not. I was about to burn them both to the ground.

Ha, the apartment is on the second floor you get to the apartment from the garage or a separate front door at the base of the stairs adjacent to the garage. The one above me is for lease. The garage is big.
