My epoxy set up on the oxygen regulator I repaired yesterday so I put it back together and tried it out. It didn’t work, so there must be a small hole in the diaphragm which I can’t see.
Parts from Amazon
So I wasn’t sure what to do about that, but finally realized I could likely find a parts kit on Amazon which I did and I ordered it.
In the mean time I remembered I have a smaller welding rig in my jewelry shop, but would it fit the big bottles.
It did so now I was good to go to get the cracks welded up.
Dirt bike temptations
I’m resisting, but I think it might not be too long before I’ll have to get a bike too. :O)
Welding up the cracks
Lots of red paint
I’m using red paint as that’s the color of the old Toyota when I got it. I’m not trying to do a restore, but just get things fixed up so I can use the rig again.
Tightened up fan belts
And as long as I was doing that I also tightened up the ones in the old Chevy van as they squeaked a bit when I first take off in the morning, same as the car. In the process I noticed the left front shock was leaking oil, something else that I’ll need to fix soon.
Brackets for the cooler
My next project was to work on the mounts for the cooler I’m adding to the radiator as the big V8 can use a bit of help on hot days and long hills. Just turning the heater on high seems to help when it overheats so I think this should solve the problem.
I got the brackets made so they needed some paint too.
By now the day was about over and was cooling down so I quite and took it easy for the rest of the day.
That was my day.
