I thought that would get your attention.

I had a coolant leak on the 305 TPI (ar, ar, ar) and had to remove the manifold so I replaced some other
stuff too. I bought a new thermostat and remembered Dave's harping about the bleed hole. Had to get
out the drill motor and the bits, picked the third from smallest bit and drilled the hole. I picked it up to
the light to check for burrs and there it was. There was already a half moon hole cut in the stopper. /wwwthreads_images/icons/shocked.gif
Guess they've been listening to you, Dave. /wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif

Hmmm... Taz, first CJDAVE calls you a liberal and now you say he's wrong????
Paybacks, perhaps?/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif

/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif My moonguys /wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gifgot into the thermostat factory and did that to all of the inventory. Actually.....several companies have been doing the notch thing on the seat of the thermo for a while now, but some are too darn small to work after a little crud builds up. I do believe that the auto parts guy showed me a foreign thermo of some kind which was notched too. BOUT TIME!!!/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif

I never believe any statistics unless my moonguys /wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif made 'em up themselves.

Dave have you seen the ones with the hole already in it and a "wobble" (for lack of a better term) valve to help burp the air but also restrict the water flow? I have seen some Chryslers and some imports with them.

I knew everything when I was 16......How come I'm so stupid now?
/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif Bout time, wouldn't you say? Lessee....I drilled my '69 suburban......that was in about '72 or so....that's 28 YEARS!!! SHEESH! It's about time!!/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif

Good goin' moonguys! I guess an extra hole won't hurt but still I did have to stop and take the time to
get out the drill motor and bits.

Dave, xjy173 stole my thunder. I was going to tell you that I would have titled that different if you hadn't
called me a liberal./wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif

Sorry about that, Taz....You shouldn't feel too bad about Dave labeling you as a liberal.... compared to him, ALL of us are liberals!/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif Why, I've heard he's rigging SNOJEEP to only make right turns! (notice that I used a Republican color for that, Dave!)/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif

Dave, it seems that one of your life missions have been fulfilled; manufacturers are putting pressure relief into thermostats. Now, if only Jeep owners would ground their "3 Jeep Groups" properly and those apprentice electricians will stop jamming self rejecting fuses in non-rejecting clips; you could retire a happy man!!/wwwthreads_images/icons/cool.gif/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif

CJ Dave's idea of a liberal is anyone that says it's OK for clinton to die of natural causes, even if it is tomorow...

(Just pokin' fun at ya CJ Dave!...)

But if the McDonalds and pork rinds catch up with him tomorow, I won't shed a tear...

/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif You have NO IDEA how tough it has been this last week. I spent the biggest part of the time in a VERY politically-correct facility. Those people suck up to their minorities SO MUCH that it is almost disgusting./wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif Lot of Klintunoids in that place.....EXCEPT for the engineers.....they are a pretty conservative bunch (thank goodness)./wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif

I don't care if the guy is white, black, red, yellow, green with purple polka-dots, if he's stupid, I'm going to call him stupid.
If he's a hard worker, but just a little slow, I can work with him.
If he's bright but lazy, I'll put him on commission. (bright guys are TOO hard to find to let any of them get away)

If a guy is obviously queer, he can work FOR me, but not WITH me... I just can't stand that yet...

My favorite squad in the military consisted of myself and two other Caucasian wasps, one half and half Hawaiian Samoan/ Mexican Hispanic, One guy from Thailand, one Jamaican Female, one Englishman (what ever he was), and two blacks. (African Americans to be politically correct)

At one time or another, we pulled each others asses out of the fire more than once, and there wasn't one of those guys I wouldn't have done anything for.
(yes, we had a female in a combat unit. She spoke seven languages and was a damned good radioman and medic)
We have reunions every five years, and I keep up with all of them.

I CAN NOT stand anyone that tries to force the politically correct crap down my throat.
That's why I don't live on one coast or another...
The Fla Keys don't try to shove the political crap on you, but you do have to discipline the queers once in a while when they get out of hand...

Southern California is the worst place I have ever seen for the politically correct crap.
Last time we were out there, I got chewed out for wearing a leather jacket.
(The little goof acted like he was going to spray paint it, but he thought better of it when I got a grip on his face...)
I got chewed out for calling **** queers instead of 'gay'...
Gay means happy, carefree, child like, not butt poking perverts...
I got chewed out for throwing away plastic bottles in the public trash cans...
I'm from out of town, I have no recycling bins on the way to the hotel, I'm traveling by cab, so it's not like I'm going to carry it around all day...
So I threw it on the ground, and that really set the militant recycles off!
I said if it was worth anything, someone would pick it up (or steal it)...
I got chewed out for running the shower too long! It's my soap and my pud, and I'll wash it as slow as I want to! I paid dearly for that hotel room, so I more than paid for the water...
I got a 20 minute screaming lecture when I said that the home owners should bait that mouse thats causing such a fuss...
It's a frigging mouse! It isn't like they can't transplant them somewhere else....
It's a mouse, it will live where ever you drop it...
Want it to really multiply, drop a few into those ratty houses in south central... I'm sure another rodent would fit right in...

I don't get it, I don't dump oil, or other chemicals, I do recycle everything we can make a nickel on around here, I'm respectful of my elders, I work hard, I pay my taxes,

Any one got a good answer?

None us of have to but this is why we all have to vote.
