You don't need any gasket sealer, just use some roller bearing grease to hold the gasket in place when you join the drum halves.
I thought about that. I know I have a can of it "somewhere" in the garage.

Thanks!

Just letting you know that idea worked out well. I spread the grease liberally on the lower bowl including the perforated lip where the pinion gear meets and drives it.
Slapped the gasket on with the upper bowl.

Wallah! the pinion gear, which after assembly is hard to reach, was also well lubricated
Thanks!

Kinda rainy on and off. Made a trip out to the new house to drop off the scooter and lift. We head back out in a bit to do the final walk through before closing tomorrow. Then I have physio this afternoon. The driveway is clear now so I can load up the truck camper onto the truck for this weekend. I pick up the new boat tomorrow morning.

Canadian eh!!!

I took a walk to work to see how long it would take me to actually get there.
13 minutes.
It's 2 by car.
Kind of a boring day really.
Aimee's not feeling well, so she called off work tonight and went to bed to rest.
I had face time with my girls this morning.
Just talked to sonny tow boy, he's in Michigan towing a camper.
For lack of knowing what to make for dinner, I got myself some KFC.
That's it. Lol

All kinds of action today. We did the final inspection walk through. Effective tomorrow we will officially be owners of the house. Then the fun begins. Moving sucks. But this should be it.

Oh, we also finalized the deal to get the expedition. It will be delivered in a couple weeks. Lots of big changes up here. New house. New boat. New suv(not by choice)

Canadian eh!!!

So today is starting off on a sour note. So much to do and I discovered a screw sticking out of one of the tires on the rental vehicle.

Back to work tonight.
I'll be mostly on the rehab wing the rest of the week.
Thing about this place is there are 95 patients/residents vs the 140 or so I was used to at the other facility I'd worked ,for nearly 12 years.
I'm making a big pork loin tonight.
That'll feed us for a few days.

Got my lawn tractor (TORO) back together this morning along with an old Husky mower that needed a new blade and control cable. The Tractor got two new blades, belts, battery, solenoid and carburetor.

Both ran very well in the 12" grass that has grown for three weeks of rain.

Put a wood frame in the car hauler as the previous owner had place an AC unit on the roof that was too heavy. Later this summer we plan to yank it off and put a skylight in the hole.

My son then left for Connecticut with the trailer and both mowers. He is getting his house ready for sale. And bringing back the last of his stuff. I still have to make a trip there and get My Ford 8N with a bucket loader.

Thanks for the thoughts guys.

The surgery is no big deal. It's not eating that's eating me.

Packing, getting ready for a week long trout fishing extravaganza. Off the grid in perfect style. While I am not what you would call an avid fisherman, I do get by and enjoy the time spent. No women allowed.

I did the same thing. Packing up the truck camper and boat to head out tomorrow for a weekend of walleye fishing. It's our annual tradition. My parents have been going to the same place since they were teens. Their parents took them. They took us as kids. I been going every year and now my son gets to carry on the tradition. We camp out in the woods in an old clay pit. Same place every year. We have a friend from Michigan who comes up every year. He's been here 58 years in a row. I remember playing baseball with him as a kid.

Canadian eh!!!
