  1. I have read that there are two versions of the Triton V10. One with three valves per cylinder and one with two. I also read that the two valve is the better of the two and that they only put the two valve in motorhomes because of space issues. I have no idea how accurate what I just said is so take it with a grain of salt. My 460 would tend to run very warm but never hot. It was carbureted and that would cause it to vapor lock on occasion in hot weather but that shouldn't be an issue with the fuel injected models. Good luck with whatever you wind up with.

    Retirement

    Hate to see you go because I always enjoyed reading your posts and looking at the pictures that you posted. I guess the bottom line is that your health comes first. I didn't know any thing about your stroke and I hope you get back to 100% soon. I agree with you about the shape our country is in and it's continually getting worse by the hour. I also agree with most all and maybe even all of the things you have said. I hate cancel culture.
  3. I had a 1986 24 Class C with a 460 in it. It was a good engine but like all of them it didn't get very good gas mileage but it had a C6 3 speed auto in it. The only place I had trouble with the power was coming up a huge hill that I think was on the west side of Yellowstone. To be fair I don't think anything less than a strong diesel would pull that hill with any authority. I was under the impression that the V-10 was a good engine. I know that they had some spark plug blowout and seizing issues with some of the early ones but there is a fix and most of them have probably been fixed by now. If I bought one I'd want to make sure it had been fixed or was one of the ones that didn't have the problem. Here's a link where you can get some good information from lots of people that have them.

  4. If this is true it's pretty scary no matter who's doing it. Some people say the the UFOs are coming from another dimension on our planet. I don't always know what is or isn't but when it comes to something like UFOs I say maybe. UFOs Have Put US Nuclear Sites Offline: Former Agency Head | Newsmax.com

    Shortages

    I'm just a tech wanna be. I can change parts out but I'm not very good at the diagnosing part of it. Ok, I'm terrible at the diagnosing part of it. Sometimes I get lucky and I'm the blind hog that finds an acorn This is only a guess but it may be bad belts or the drive system needs cleaned up. You might try taking the cover off and cleaning and lubricating all of the moving parts. It wouldn't hurt to clean the controls either.

    Shortages

    I have to ask what kind of electronics do you work on? I work on vintage stereo stuff a little bit but I'm not very good at it. Oh, and the shortages. There's a shortage of smart honest politicians.
  7. I've read about all of the UFO information that's going to be released. I wonder if they'll be bad aliens so the whole world can unite as one and try to fend them off. I hope Marvin the Martian doesn't use his earth eliminator gun on us. Do we have to wear masks around aliens to keep them from getting our diseases and us getting theirs?

    Firearms

    I guess I should have been more clear. The man on the tv program doing the editorial (the one Archie was watching) at the beginning of that clip was the one that I thought was Sorrell Booke.

    I believe that's Boss Hogg (Sorrell Booke) on TV talking about gun control.
  10. I don't know what the fix would be but mine did it one time when one tire hit a fairly tall rut head on. I shut it down and waited about 20 seconds and restarted it. It fixed it and hasn't done it since.
  11. The dems have been trying very hard to shut this down but so far haven't succeeded. I hope it's allowed to continue and be finished. My only concern is that it's been so long since the election that there has been ample time to change and cover up the fraud. Hopefully the truth will be exposed. I have read that in 2019 during the Ky. governor's election that there was a ballot dump late that day in favor of the dem who supposedly won. He's been trampling on our rights ever since he got in office.
  12. Here's a link to the Intenz bar like I have. If you ever come across one run away. I'm going to go ahead and buy the adjuster screw and I still won't have much money in it. I'm sure glad that my other saws are a lot better than the Poulan. IntenzBarsF_B0601.pdf (oregonproducts.com)

  14. Are you referring to the Oregon bar that adjusts with the bar itself. If so you may be able to get an adjuster that'll fit the side cover that you have now. Not too long ago there were two saws and two trimmers at the end of a driveway that said free. I picked up the saws because they looked to be in good condition. One was a Poulan 3816 and the other was a Homelite XL Little Red. Cheap saws but what the heck because they were free. I put new fuel lines on the Poulan to get it going and it's running pretty good but still needs the carb tweaked some. It has the adjuster in the bar and when I tried it out it threw the chain twice. I got to looking at the clutch cover and I believe I can just buy the adjusting screw with the other parts to make it work. If I get it working well I'll use it for my grubbing saw so I won't mess up my good ones. The Homelite would run but not for long. Probably the fuel lines on that one too. I would have got the trimmers too but couldn't get them in my car trunk and they were gone when I passed back through.
  15. To keep it simple I just mix 3 oz. of oil to 1 gal. of gas and it comes out to a little less than 43-1 ratio. I also always use premium gas.
