    TYM T293 Lost Power After 20 Minutes Run time

    Since deliveries through Amazon now can take 7 to 10-days: If there is something I need, I go show it to local brick and mortar shops, and ask if they have somethings similar within 15% to 30% in stock, that I can walk out of the store with. I would expect that my local NAPA would have a...

    TYM T293 Lost Power After 20 Minutes Run time

    I doubt there is anything distinct on the pump you have all it does is lift the fuel from the tank to the real pump. Just guessing but, 12-volts, 3 to 5 psi, 5-gpm, electric pump should work. You aren’t pulling moving gobs of fuel, and it just needs to maintain positive pressure to the main...

    Are you a prepper?

    My fear is that one of the nations making all of aour command and control computers for the critical infrastructure has hidden nonsense triggers deep in the firmware. The first time we went to Iraq, their entire air defense and control radar system went nuts, showing planes that weren’t...

    The major gps providers, will let road owners annotate their roads with seasonal and emergency closures, not plowed in winter etc. At least they did 13-years ago, and most of the forest roads are still reflecting what we put in then. And I think the fire managers still have some way to let...
