Guess I should slow down a bit.

Sure is at times. I've had one hell of a time with this new laptop computer and paypay transactions. Effin govt. has it's fingers into everything we do and some things are transparent, some not so easy or damned near impossible till you finally get to talk to someone that can't even tie their own shoes but can flip a software switch to allow completion of a task.

Tried to sponsor the site a few months ago and it wouldn't let the transaction go through and I remiss; I forgot to get back onto it at home. Memory is the second thing to go as age creeps up on me.

Think I'll go hug my Onan and make it all better.

Thanks,

Now that I've subscribed successfully, It looks like I can once again post photos.

This is a Caterpillar D398, (V-12) series genset in the basement of an airport. We have to take the floor out above it, and cut a hole in the roof as they've expanded the building enclosing this monster. No real way to support it easier than a single pick with a hydrocrane truck. As can be seen by the photo it is very clean. Only trouble is that it's 4175 Volts output.....
