    The engine brings back many memories back in the time working on the 6V92 Detroit Diesel of city buses. :bowdown:

    Goodmorning crew :pccoffee:
    Time to shop for a different insurance company. 6-8 weeks ago when I inquire about insurance on 4runner the person I spoke to said changes were coming but they didn't know what it would look like.
    Wife said yesterday....first thing when I get home from work....looks like our insurance is going up $200 a year per vehicle.
    My daughter has her own policy on 2023 Tacoma.

    Bolts on the lower left motor mount look loose. I'd put some eyes on them. Other than that, looks like a clean install.

    Good morning friends! Hope yawl all have an awesome day :hattip:


    I feel a lot better, still a lot of snot but it's coming out. Still no taste or smell. Tried to smell the gas tank of that saw the other day, nothing. Wife made garlic bread last night, nothing.


    I need to shop around for insurance, ours just went up as well.

    A friend of mine who is an agent told me it's because the cost of vehicles has gone up and electric cars are so expensive to replace batteries in. I said why does that affect my rates, I have the same 3 vehicles I've had and 2 of them are 21+ years old :evil::facepalm:

    We just finished shopping around. We went with a slightly higher deductible, and a few less coverages of things here and there. But it ended up saving us about 2500$ a year

    I know! And the 4runner and Tacoma had a reduced price for not being a primary vehicle (7,500 mi year).
    I'm letting the wife do the shopping for better rates and going to ask her to check with a local ins broker.
    The good news is my employer recently conducted a wage comparison among other companies and that equates to ~1200 a month pay increase including cost of living.
    Not a day goes buy that I don't count my blessings for what I've got and am able to provide for my family.

    Good eye! They were in fact loose and look at the screen on the alignment computer, it's in the 'move mode'; allows us to move the engine horizontally and see when we're getting close. After that photo we had to lock all the feet down and take a final reading.

    Nice! Congratulations!! I’m sure you got this covered but make sure you adjust your withholdings so you don’t get hammered next year.

    My wife and I have been adjusting for the past few years to find the sweet spot. We didn’t have to pay this year but the refund was a bit too much.

    Yes! And what I really need to do is start putting some $$ in each paycheck to a 457 plan. I think 457, the one where you put in after taxes and no penalties on withdrawal.

    Excellent! Do you still working for the same employer? Seem like he was a good guy to work for and you enjoyed it.
    I'm still a little bent out of shape at my job because it doesn't look like any chance for promotion. The last supervisor position to get filled was buy a guy w/little more than a years service and I didn't even get interviewed. Lots of employees leaving here lately. (Reason for wage updates and comparisons)
