haha, you guys kill me!!!
Johnney, in the fitting that screws to the tank is a spring check safety fitting that in the event of too much gas flow will spring closed and block the flow of gas. this would be used in the event a hose broke or got cut.
if you open the valve too quickly you will hear a click or a snap. that is the sound of the ball closing off. to prevent this from happening simply open the main valve slowly. once the valve is open a couple turns open it the rest of the way normally. the same goes for opening the valve on the handle of the weed burner.

Well now,,,,, if I make it to smoker builder HQ saterday I will be a witness to the pour factor and which way it spins. LOL We may have to use beer though.


LMAO thinking of the past.

My Aunt calls and says the shi**er is plugged. It will only flush of the plunger is laying in the bowl.

So

I tell her that the vent stack must be plugged and not letting the correct amount of air to siphon.

So

I figure the best way to clear the blockage is to take the leaf blowwer to the roof and blow the clog down the drain.

Yup it blew alright.

THen

I hear her scream. The toliet water is hitting the ceiling.

I Guess

There must have been less Resistance at the toliet on the second floor.


Just saying.!!!

No chit man, that really did happen, and I had to help clean it up.

In the end I found out that the holes under the toilet rim were clogged up with calicum .... cleaned um and it flushed perfect.

first that avatar and then this story ...

STOP - you're killing me ... =))

Tom I have this mental image of you dropping a small outboard motor down in the tank to help it flush better - pull start and all.

REALLY! you guys are too much... =))


And on the eighth day God created barbecue …. because he DOES love us and he wants us to be happy. :D
