Re: Pump failure

The cartridge that failed has a white plastic impeller. I have a replacement cartridge for a bronze pump that has a black plastic impeller. Other than the color of the impeller they look identical.

Pump failure

DC332403-A12F-4D1D-B0CA-AE6E4FDD2017.jpeg Went to put wood in the furnace this morning and noticed something making a lot more noise than normal. Pump on my shop loop was the guilty critter. I had a spare cartridge for it. It’s a Taco 009, going on 7 years old. Looks like I need to get another spar...

Firewood

Thought I had a swarm of honey bees move into the wood shed the other day. There are hundreds of these bees flying in and out of just one bay in my wood shed. I got to looking and they are not honey bees. They are a little bit smaller. They bore a small hole in the logs. They are only doing this to ...

Re: Shutdown during winter (on purpose)

I have used RV antifreeze to winterize my boat engines for many years and never had any issues. Picked up 12 gallons last fall and was reading not for use in engines. Did a little research and it's due to the alcohol used in it now and that it would evaporate. Just to be safe I ended up ordering a m...

Re: Firewood too long

Having just the opposite problem here. I try to cut my wood 20-24 inches long. Ran across some in my woodshed of 12-14 inch stuff! Not sure how or why it got there!

Re: Bobcat trencher

I have a bleeder striped out on the booster on my dump truck. I'm not sure if the bleeder screw or the cylinder is striped because I haven't looked into it that far yet. They do make a repair kit for them. Looks like you tap out the hole with a NPT tap and thread a new seat in for a new bleeder scre...
