    Default Hydraulic Hose Mix-Up

    At the risk of being taunted by Frank-F15, heres my latest mishap. When attaching my loader, I mixed up the hoses (yes, they're color coded) and the loader would not go up or down, tilt or roll. They were really mixed up. I don't know how I could have gotten all four of them in the wrong spot but I did. I've since corrected my error and there seems to be no ill effect. I've heard that this sort of thing can damage a valve or relief. Dodged the Bullet again! [img]/w3tcompact/icons/grin.gif[/img]

    Isn't it nice to feel and act and do all the things normal people do. I'd blame it on failing eysight or dirty glasses.

    Years ago when my main ride was a 69 mach I , I was changing the steering cylinder and managed to get the two lines to it reversed even though they form fitted. Everything seemed ok until I started the car and touched the steering wheel. It started to jerk back and forth very quickly. Damned near broke my wrist..... I chalked it up to being a stupid kid laying on my back in the middle of winter with my eyes full of crap and no ramps to raise the car. Had to blame it on something. Tom

    Frank-F15, I was joking as well[img]/w3tcompact/icons/grin.gif[/img]. I have enjoyed your comments and have been known to tease others as well. Here's another one: Now what is a stationary engineer? Is it someone who engineers while stationary or is someone who engineers that fancy smelly paper that my wife likes to write letters on?

    Color coding is OK as long as you're not color blind, which many are, then mix that with a numbering system for those with dyslexcia and you have a loader that doesn't know which ends up..

    On a more serious note, my father is color blind and 86 yrs still does everything as any normal person, as he adjusts to the situation, red light - top is stop, bottom is go, in the middle, well press on the gas..

    Don't they deal with heating/cooling/boilers .etc systems in large complex's or buildings.. like hospitals, etc.
    Our local hospital just advertised for one, and those were the duties/responsibilities that were looking for.
    Any takers?

    Actually a Stationary Engineer is an engineer hard at work and not disturbing anyone. He does this with his eyes closed and feet up on desk with the office door closed. When in this state all others are very happy as all will run smoothly.

    Here in Texas we have blinking yellow and red lights at some country intersections on major highways. I always thought that people ran the red lights because they did not care but maybe they are color blind and think the lights are just caution lights. It looks like the state would realize that color blind people can not tell what color these lights are but then that would be expecting a too much from the government.
