Toyota engine repairs
I tried to start my old Toyota that’s been sitting around, a couple days ago. I got it started but it was a lot of work. The manual choke was stuck so it needed some repairs to try and free up the choke so the engine would start much easier. Today I was going to free up that stuck choke.
I had to bang on the cable some and worked a bit to get it out of the cover. It had some corrosion on it and that’s why it was stuck. I oiled it up and put some grease on it and installed it back on the rig.
Headed up into the hills
Rocks needed here
My plan was to use the rocks to make a dam here that would catch the silts and gravels that will flow down the ditch, with the water, when it rains hard. If I wait for that to happen I don’t have to fill it up, Mother nature will do the rest of the work.
It’s easier unloading rocks, than loading them and I soon had a small rock dam build across this ditch. This is a much better solution than installing a culvert that would plug up. No plug ups this way and no costly culverts to buy and transport back here. A win, win, deal with some exercise to boot.
I’d gotten enough exercise doing this and was tired out so I went on home for a nap.
