    Yeah. It just got silly at some point.

    I have ordered a digital monoxide meter, for "next time".

    I mainly posted here to see if it's possible if an IC engine or mower could be a delayed source of CO, enough to set off a commercial cheapie detector. Detector is center, high spot of shop.

    Another source? Truck backing in, but was garage next door and all shop doors were closed.

    Baffled near Bellingham.

    If it’s one of the New kind they pick up all sorts of stuff. Unburned hydrocarbons of any kind, even cutting with a zip cutter (relatively no sparks or dust) sets ‘em off. Old style ones were a lot more forgivin’

    Makes sense! I had some plastic EPA approved gas cans vaping off out side in front of shop before disposal (I got some REAL metal gas cans)

    Not really, my Sensit Gold will read down to very low CO levels and since CO is basically the same ''weight'' as air, it mixes very well and just hangs around until you actually exchange the air with air with no CO in it.

    We will get calls from people who start their car in an attached garage, walk back into their house for a second and if there is negative pressure in the house or the wind is blowing into the garage door opening, it will push a decent amount of CO into the house in a very few short seconds. A just started vehicle produces many thousands of parts of CO [PPM] until it warms up some.

    The carrying propellant on many aerosol sprays can also set off a CO detector

    I sprayed the sliding bin on my camper with silicone spray, just the fumes set it off, wasn’t even inside just near by

    When I run my old 1946 forklift the blue haze seems to linger in the garage for hours.
    The forklift doesn't consume much oil as I don't use it much or for long.
    She does blow a lot of smoke on occasion.

    Leaky valve guides?

    That always makes them smoke. A little oil goes a long ways with those low rpm engines.

    Gravity fed fuel tank?

    Fuel leaking past the float? Crankcase is full of gas instead of oil?

    I'm just kidding around here. Seriously, though, I have that t shirt. Small engines have a fuel shut off for a reason.

    She is 75 years old. The fact that she runs fairly reliably is good enough for me. I only use her in the garage and dooryard so a 200 foot round trip is an exceptionally long one. She will really smoke after sitting at an idle for a bit.

    I did finally have to break down and spend hard cash on her a few years ago -- 4 new spark plugs, the ones I took out covered 3 brands for 4 cylinders. I went to Auto Zone and asked the girl for spark plugs for a 1946 Towmotor LT40, after a blank stare and not finding it in the computer she asked me if it was a boat. :notsure:

    The engine is a Continental flat head.

    Jim and Wayne at the local Oreilly auto parts will still look stuff up in the book if they need too. The others don’t know what the books are for.

    Jim is older, I went there last year needing a set of points for a Farmall 140, he stared at me for a minute and walked away. Came back with a box, they fit perfect :D

    I am always hearing the Oh, Oh, O'Reilly Auto Parts commercials on the local radio and got curious where they were located.
    The nearest one is 150 miles away. :notsure:

    Same here. Rain, then 70°F+, rain, rinse, repeat.

    Some here call it the Green Hell. Temperate Rain forest. Cool Jungle.

    I got a car that does that at idle I'll sell ya to match the smokin' lift :spy::rofl:

    While I have satellite radio in the Tacoma, I'll be forced to listen to FM when driving the Camry or others. I'll hear an O'Reilly commercial atleast once per trip on a station based out of North Central Maryland. The nearest one for that radio station is in Virginia! Thought that was kinda odd. I do have one sorta near me in Bedford, PA, but I haven't been there yet. I have a Carquest and Autozone right here in my little town. Used to be a Napa, but the older guy who owned it decided to say the Hell with it. Store is still full of stuff!

    There’s an Advance Auto 2 miles from my house. I usually drive 8 to get to O’reilly.

    I went to advance not too long ago for wiper blades on the Duramax. I carried an old one with me and matched it up. By the time the guy got done looking it up I had already checked out and heading for the door.

    How dangerous is Carbon Monoxide?

    There are three things that make carbon monoxide extremely dangerous: 1) The molecules of carbon monoxide are so small, they can easily travel through drywall; 2) Carbon monoxide doesn’t sink or rise – it mixes easily with the air inside a home; 3) It is an odorless gas, so without an alarm to notify you that it is in your home, you likely wouldn’t notice until it was too late. These three traits combined is what gives carbon monoxide the title of, “The Silent Killer.”

    I did the same for my brother joe today. Mowed the school softball field and half of the school yard and then noticed joes wife was helping and then standing next to her Kubota… tire went flat and came off the rim…. Here take mine and I’ll take the broke one and fix the tire…. Cleaned the beads and popped it back on… always something :cheers: I just can’t compliment enough on how much beer goes with a diesel mower :D
