Looking good Burns, Hope I'm invited to the hot tube lighting ceremony. Can you make me some 8 hp valves in your FREE time ? I noticed that nice rare Reid tag in the Background in the 1st photo. Thanks

What's that fancy indicator in the picture for? A wise man once said, "It's an oil field engine. It ain't rocket science boys."

I'd say that man don't know squat about an oilfield engine. There's far more science involved than the casual observer often thinks.

I was sure that was a joke. My sense of humor gets lost in translation most of the time.

But, I do run into that so called logic all the time. Fix my oilfield engine that makes my living for free so I can afford all my toys.

That's what makes it funny Reed. Especially when you're soaked in sweat and have sore spots in places you didn't know you had muscles and some feller smoking a pipe walks up and says "One more time boys. You're real close to getting it to go." Thank goodness for tractors with belt pulleys or we would probably still be pulling those flywheels!!

I couldn't pass up the opportunity to bust John's chops a little. I look forward to him picking back a little the next time I see him.
