Rail, I am confused.


What do you mean by "turned up to 300 hp" and "turned up a lot, up to 400 hp"? Do you mean to say that the same engine can be somehow electronically modified to have higher horsepower? I don't follow...

Good Afternoon;
Spent the morning polishing the bike. Coach has been moved back in the polishing line for a day or two. Then back at it.

I think on the manual diesels they somehow adjust the fuel pump to get more HP. On the newer diesels they do it via programming of the ECM. I am sure someone who knows for sure will chime in. I think some of the limits are set by the amount of torque the transmission can take. I also think extra horsepower equates to increased fuel consumption.

Son wants to take his quad out for the weekend. So I offered to set the battery charger up for him. MISTAKE!!! Took an awful long time to find the battery. You would think they would have it under the seat. Wrong! Turns out it is at the very back above the differential. How to get the battery charger on it? Finally found a buss that was live so have clipped on to that. Have to check to see if it will actually charge the battery but can see no reason why not.

Have a great afternoon all.

Congratulations!

Now, the real work begins. (At least that's what all of the retired folks keep saying. I'm not quite there yet, so I'm not quite sure about that.)

Congratulations Lloyd. Charles has it right. Now the work begins and the pay stops. You will wonder how you ever managed to work and still get as much stuff done as you did. No worries - now you will be able to do what you want, when you want to do it. LOL Just kidding!!

evening,
Really hate too rain on parades here, especially Lloyd congrats
It did not go well at the surgeon's today the infection has spread to the toe next to the Great one,(not so great for me.)and has started to go into my foot. So I was hoping for 6 months of antibiotic's in the arm inter what ever, I can't spell it.
Nope so I will lose 2 toes and part of my foot. he won't be able to cover the wound and it will need to be left open and heal that way. We were to go up north tomorrow and I wanted to leave tonight, but lost that fight again but we are leaving in the AM "come hell or high water"
It will be done next week, he says ASAP before it can spread further. He says he's seen it spread faster than mine. 1 night in the hospital but with my luck a week!!!! I saw 3 specialists and 1 surgeon and they all said the same.
Thanks for the birthday wishes.
Gordon, I should be ready too go by the time we head to Yuma, so he says.
I'm going to bed,
Not sure if we will have Hotspot up north, so might not be back on till next week.
I'm not coming home till I need to go in to hospital
Again congrats Lloyd,
Rail I'll keep my eyes open for a peculator
Tim

Good morning everyone! Coffee was very good today!!
Lloyd, Congrat's on the big day!!! Man, it got here faster than you thought!
Tim, sorry to hear about your foot! Don't put it off too long, the longer you wait the more they will take! Get your butt in the hospital!!
No worries about the percolator! I can get one over here, I am pretty sure!
Charles, all of the diesel's can be "turned up" from the factory settings, and as Gordon pointed out, it depends on the drive line, and how much they can take, power and torque wise! Our factory setting on our 8.3 Cummins was 275 HP. and 850 ft. lbs. of torque! It does a great job as it is, and gets really good fuel mileage, so I will leave it alone, for now! The electronic diesel's are turned up by changing/reprograming the ECU, and my older pre-electronic motor is changed by the fuel pump settings! More fuel = more power! But you also have to increase air into the motor too, so if turned up much, a bigger turbo to get more air into the motor is in order! So it can get expensive real quick, and you are better off to buy it done already, if that is what you want!
Just had a real hard rain come thru, now it is just a nice slow steady soaker!! I like the rainy days, and this is the rainy season, so nice!
Everyone have a great day! Rail!

Morning!

71* here, very overcast rain expected. Thunder storms last night, lost power for awhile.

Oh gosh Tim, get that done asap. Last thing you want is it moving into your leg. Very sorry this is happening.

Well, for my first retired day my only plans are some mowing (if it dries), and preparing for the weekends trip. I expect I will have a bigger list as I move forward.

Have a great day all!

Good Morning Gang,
Coffee is good again, had a quick shower yesterday morning around 11, so got off early
Tim,
Sorry about your issues, get it taken care of pronto, and then enjoy the rest of your summer.
Lloyd,
Congrats on finally getting to your retirement, now the work really begins. The hardest thing will be to slow down, now you don't have to rush to get a project done so you can go to work.
Gordon,
It just sounds like you like to polish things, lol.
Have a great day all,
Frank

Geez Tim. Sorry about the bad news. Glad about the good news that they can get you in quickly. Hope the recovery time is short. I know you have a solid support system with Joe and the girls there. As mentioned do not procrastinate. Janet and I wish you the best.

Tim - check this out. http://motorhomesoftexas.com/coachrv...-34WDS--P1203A

Like to polish. Find it can be very restful. Generally easy to get immediate results so find it calming and satisfying.

Today is Grand Daughter day. Am going to be tuckered later!

Have a great day.

Goooodmorning all y’all!!!

It’s overcast and rainy, I guess the monsoon season’s starting. My morning coffee’s just okay. It sat in my RV in an unsealed bag for two months in the Arizona heat while I was gone. If I had more money I’d just throw it out but I found that it’s not too bad if I double the amount of beans I use. I’m starting to feel better after my long journey. I finally saw the new Independence Day flick last night. I can see why it was panned by the critics, it was one continuous cliché. However, I was entertained so I guess it was worth the $5.75 I paid to see it.

Tim, I’m really sorry to hear about your foot problems. Of course, as others have said, the best thing is to take care of it ASAP as it’ll only get worse. My late wife had foot problems (and numerous other problems because of diabetes). During the period she was dying of cancer it was almost a tossup as to which was worse, the cancer that was slowly killing her or the diabetes that made her wish she was dead!

I’m slowly getting the rolling mess I live in picked up. I do keep a clean kitchen and bathroom but I’m just not a tidy person. I seem to be a guy who thrives on a certain amount of chaos. Ah well, it’s a dirty job, but someone’s gotta do it.

I’ll try to get the trip photos posted soon. After sorting through the photos for obviously bad photos and bloopers I’m left with 1,147 photos to critically sort through (heavy sigh). At least I’m not burdened with trying to do a 9 to 5 job at the same time.

Steve
