You keep making me think philosophically, Torchie. Thank you.
You are welcome. Mac .
Perhaps the young fellow will grow out of that.
Some will. And some never do.......
I sold some flathead parts to a young guy from my old home town yesterday. We talked about what he is building and he looked at my build, etc.
He and his brother have a small shop and I have seen some of their work before. But never had the chance to meet them. Very quiet almost shy kid. And a very good builder.
As he left he mentioned that it was too bad that I didn't still live there any more "As there isn't that many people around there that really know what they are talking about." I told him to hang on to my number.
I happened to be back in that town again this morning and I stopped at their shop and gave him some books on flathead engines and transmissions that I thought he might enjoy reading and learn something from.
First words out of his mouth were"How much do you want for them." I replied "What's the proper response when some one gives you a gift."
He said, Thank you.
Good deed done for the day.
Time for a nap.. The youngsters a PT kicked my butt today.

Good deeds go a long way. I try to do the same for the kids that appreciate it. They are getting hard to come by though.

You're a good man, Charlie Brown!

Your compressor: kenny c is right and your pictures make it clear. You have a two cylinder/two stage compressor. The large cylinder feeds the smaller cylinder. #1 cylinder is the first stage, #2 cylinder is the second stage, #3 charges the tank/storage vessel...



On the opposite side, this device is an air-to-air intercooler... it takes some heat out of the first stage "charge" before the second stage compresses and heats it again...




A penguin, a baker and a one-legged chef walk into a bar...

No. I was referring to a big band leader wearing a tuxedo.

So, a penguin, a baker and a one-legged chef walk into a bar... the cross-eyed bartender looks up and says, "What can I get for you, Torchie?"
