Had a friend back in the day.
Donald was always working on something.
A car, a bike, he was a doer.
He hung around my garage a lot.
One day I’m out front,
under a truck.
I see his feet appear, but he’s just standing there.
I wiggle out, stick my head out and he’s just standing there.
White as a ghost.
Just stareing at me.
“What’s up?” I asked.
10 seconds later he tells me,
“That old Triumph I have out back. With the dented tank.
Thought I’d put some air pressure on it toget that dent out.
I made a blank to close off the fill and rigged up an adapter
to fit the air hose at the petcock. I was holding it down on the bench with one hand, and didn’t put much air in it at all and boom,
the whole right side let go. The tank is ruined.!”
“You ok?” I asked.
“Yeah. I’m ok. But I tell you one thing, it got my blood pumping pretty good!”
Needless to say, that was it as far as fixing gas tanks around there.
Yes aluminum rims do suck .
“Mags” was supposed to be short for wheels made of magnesium . Or so I always thought.
When we bought our Jeep Patriot several years ago o made sure we got the steel wheels. I had too much trouble with keeping air in the aluminum wheels on the Caravan .
I have had good luck with Harley cast wheels though .
So what do I know? Lol.
