Re: 26-27 coil box kit

Please post how you are coming along. I have to do the same thing soon and want to see how you are going to deal with the small bar that runs through the box. I think you have to bend it to get it out. Do you heat it up? How are you going to put it back and get it tight?

Happy Birthday United States Marine Corps

Happy Birthday Marines. On this day in 1775 my Marine Corps came alive. How many Marines do we have out there? When did you serve. For me 1984-2014 Enlisted and Officer. I have to say I had more fun as a Sgt then I ever did as a LtCol.

Re: Obese, hell I didn't even think I was overweight

I got that feeling when I had to get 40 pounds of dog food from the basement. Couldn't believe I had more that that on me all the time. Not good. I'm so glad I'm lighter....
