Well Poopers! I had to buy water softner salt today so I strolled by tool isle and picked up a hole saw and extension. Got home, did the deed with all the other stuff and set down to drill me a couple exhausts. After about 15 seconds of drilling I stopped to see what kind of dent I was making on the can. Well, it looked like I had shot peened the front end. Looked at the hole saw and all the teeth were worn off! Geeze, I THOUGHT it said it was bi-metal. But it's looking like this was a wood only saw. Worse, it seems the jittering has locked up the extension. I can't get it apart.
Well, guess I'll work on that another day. I DID notice that my left hand turn lights are flashing fast. This can't be good I thought, and I as right. Bout a year and a half ago, for some reason, probably an incorrectly installed seal, my left-rear turn signal was full of water and corroded. I worked it over and cleaned it, saoked it with baking soda water, cleaned THAT mess off and put it back together. No luck though. It's rotten in there and the only thing making my turn signals visible from behind is the Electrical connections LED's which do flash. So at least thats working while I order in a full new stem to replace this corroded one with. Heck, the stinking O-ring for some reason or another has expanded, I couldn't get it back in the hole without cutting 1/4 inch out of it. I'll have the parts in a week.
Just goes to show ya, it's always sumptin.
