Has anyone else been having problems with Facebook?

I live in Canada (camped on the mountain overlooking Osoyoos) &, lately, have been seeing many of my posts being deleted as spam or contravening Facebook 'rules': We removed your content


Alternative lubricants for a ZF manual gearbox?

written () ago

First I'll give a little back-story about my experiences with an old VW van transaxle. Used to be, many moons ago when I was young, that I'd buy a beater VW van, fix it up, then sell it when I wanted something else. Often, the transaxle would have a pronounced whine & be hard to shift. I'd basically cure 'cure' that by adding by adding a can of Molyslip (molybdenum disulfide & engine oil) to the transaxle. This would often work in rear diffs & manual gearboxes that started to howl.


I have a puzzling problem with a '77 350 Chev engine.

written () ago

A friend of mine bought a car that has a modded 350 in it which, though it has wonderful power, hesitates off idle when launching it & backfires. It has a high rise manifold, Holley 670 cfm double pumper, headers going into 3" dual exhaust & a mystery cam & runs SUPER rich. I stuck my gas analyzer on it &, if adjusted to run anywhere near an ideal air/fuel ratio, backfires when idling. Right now it's a pig on gas & carbon fouls the plugs after a bit. The previous owner, who can't be reached,...


BOO!

HISSS! The German loans post was removed before I could really get started. Oh well, next time's the charm. Kinda pathetic, maybe, but keeps me entertained. Used to have a blast on the old Help site trolling the spammers.

My dog still visits me in my dreams and he died 31 years ago.

Thanks, but them's the breaks. Funny thing is, I adopted her as an X-mas present to myself (during X-mas) and she died 16 yrs later, almost to the day. I already have another dog on the way from a rescue in Mexico since, as I've told many others who'd lost their dog, only another dog can lessen the hurt. I suppose that Coco is cavorting now with Roxy and both will be there to greet me when it's finally my time.

Yeah how narrow a definition of relationship are we talking here? I mean some of my best relationships have been with dogs. You still like dogs, right?

I have TWO dogs, so I'm in 1 of those 3way style relationships, very avant garde, a true millennial dude if I say so myself.. & I do.

Hey yall, How bout some noise!!

Ever since the old Help was screwed over by corporate greed it's been hard to get things going. The hiatus between the old & new meant many of the people that kept the old site alive drifted away or, unfortunately, even died. I know of 2 online friends from the old Help that died. the problem is getting the word out that this resource is available.

It seems to me that people place too much importance on a narrow definition of what a relationship must be in order to be satisfied & often end up needy , chasing an ideal while letting other opportunities for emotional fulfillment fall to the wayside.
