  • You'll never know what you'll find in the barn..

    I was digging through the barn last week trying to find where I stashed a bucket with extra ohv six manifold keepers when I found a V8 starter buried under some boxes.

    I bench tested the starter and it works, the funny thing is I cannot recall scrapping out a V8 that had a starter on it. In fact most of the Larks I have scrapped all had ohv sixes with rods through the block

    Well, I have a V8 starter for my Ohv taxi drivetrain

        My luck is opposite as well. I normally find the part I need in my stash after I have given up looking and bought it from some one else.

          Been there and done that! [B)] I needed a 2-5/16" (silly USA measurements diameter ball hitch to pull a car trailer a few weeks ago so I went to the hardware store and paid $12 for a new ball. I removed the existing 2" ball and put the 2-5/16" ball on in its place, then decided to put the 2" ball in the passenger side door pocket for safe keeping. I opened the door to put it in and found a nearly new 2-5/16" ball! [:0] I had forgotten that I bought one two years ago. [B)]

            I glad I'm not the only one going through this sort of madness. I recently gave away a bunch of parts that had been cluttering up the barn for years. A couple of starters, generators, and a gas tank. Mind you, that was only about 3 days ago. I got a call from a guy today who needs a generator, for which now I have to go digging and hoping... DUH. Another gent will sell me a Wagonaire which just happens to missing its gas tank. Yeah, the same one I just got rid of....double DUH. And in the batch of starters that just left was one I should have kept for the 289 auto I just got. DUH again. A trifecta of OOOPSes.
