  • My Story
    My '96 Ural with the optional eccentric wheels, oval brake drums, and self desructing crankshaft has helped shape my spiritual, social, and political views. I think of it as a fitting tribute to socialism in general, and what collectivist ideaology can accomplish. I am now a rabid individualist, meritocratist, capitalist, libertarian. Thank you IMZ

  1. 50' of rope? I'd make it 100'. You can't have too much rope.
  2. Don't roller bearings need some friction to umm... roll? If they make oil too slick, wouldn't they just slide around in the housing? Try that one on an oil pusher, and see what they come up with. Zounds! for 6+ bucks a quart, you should build an engine with no bearings and make er work with it.
  3. The amount of ferite material rerquired to magneticly overcome the negative presure in the combution chamber at the top of the the intake stroke would make it too heavy to operate at the speeds needed. Perhaps hydraulic acutation with an accumilator triggerd by little coil powered pilots.....hmm Nothing better, or more effective than unadulterated mechanical linkage in this case. For now.
  4. Let us know how it goes getting it out of Ukraine. I know where there are lots of complete Dneper rigs in the Crimea, along with some very interesting old cars from the early 50's all in good shape, that can be bought for a song. But I've been told that I would have to pay a huge export tax to get the stuff through the docks. An American shipping antique "junk" all the way to the US....customs officials smell money, "That will be um...Ten thousands of dollars please!" I do not wish to discourage you, but my limited experiance with shipping things in and out of Ukraine has ben horrific. I am still trying to develop the all important "connections"
  5. What was the dog's original color? :flame-on!:
  6. красный цвет очень хорошo! :thumbsup!:

    ZIL 157

    Slovak Army still have PRAGER trucks. They drive this one around KAF near Kandahar. The cab is from ZIL model 38 They also still use old UAZ and Fergons Their UAZ's are much older than the Afgan Army's
  8. Rekon it's got one o them archaic engineering warruntees Gearhead was warning us about?
  9. The border fence could be built for a mere pitance if we hire Illegal, um... wet b... umm , ..undocumented workers. And there is nothing wrong with Ill, legal immigrants. I hope they all get better.
  10. I just shipped a small box of language CDs to my place in Sevastopol, via Fed Ex. Customs in Kiev sat on it for three weeks, then demanded a tax of 90 Hrivna (about $17). It sat for another two weeks, then they called and changed it to 460 Hrivna (aprx.$90) Two weeks later it was delivered. I havn't yet asked my wife what the final damage was. This was merely a cheap little box of English language CDs. I'm told they hit things going out hard too now.
  11. SOLD! you do paaypal, or ya want a ck? I am in no hurry for delivery I'll of course pay shipping
  12. You should see the ones we have here in the Kandahar region. On hot days, I've seen huge stationary ones. They just stay anchored to one exact same spot, and "drill" away at it for fifteen or twenty minutes. There are certain places around the air strip where they start, and restart day after day. I've seen a few last in the same general area for hours. I supose they are common everywhere, but with all the fine dust here, you just see em real well.
  13. Find some tires at a swap meet, garage sale, or junkyard that are so old their hard as rocks. (About 30 years.) They will handle like their made of wood, and in a bit of rain, it will seem just like you're on a skating rink! But, they will last for years! When the second set of cords start showing, you can tie rags around em, or use duct tape to get sveral hundred more kilometers.
  14. All that tourqe! But, a slow reving engine with stock Dnepr gearing: That's got to be frustrating. Lots more power. Lots less speed. I bet you could pull a 20' trailer though.
