Did getting an idle screw fix it?

I'm a little worried about kids getting a hand or foot caught between the upright posts and the swing supports. Just a few more inches of gap would let a kid's arm get twisted instead of broken.

I'm glad to see Cantor mentioned.  After decades of obscurity, Tesla is finally getting some well-deserved respect for his work (I suppose the occasional over-compensation is inevitable).  Hopefully the work of folks like Cantor and Gödel will be given similar accolades over time.  The effect of their work is so deep and fundamental that it has legitimate philosophical implications.  Technologies a billion years hence will no doubt have capabilities that we can barely imagine today, yet they will still be constrained by fundamental mathematical principles discovered by Cantor and others.  That's quite an achievement.

Is that the same basic build as the one in your "first start of 2014" video? The sound is different, but I can't tell if the differences are due to changes in the recording environment.

Whoah.  When I saw the title, then saw that it was posted by Mr. Williams, my first thought was "wha-a-a-a-at?!?"  That piece of rolling art was beautifully painted by his dad, so I couldn't believe that anyone would cover it all up with a few cans of temporary spray-on plastic wrap.  Looking at the final product, though, it's clear that my assumptions were all wrong.  I didn't even know it was possible to get that smooth of a coating with plasti-dip.  I guess the pro nozzle really makes a difference.  It looks really good, which is no surprise given the owner's track record at modding.

At 2:48 you said there'd be a link in the description to a DSMLink video, but I don't see one. Yes, there really are people who read the descriptions. :-) Watching videos like yours, and attempting to make minor repairs on my car, has encouraged me to be more careful and actually read instructions.

R.I.P. Rick Smalley.  I got to meet him at a Foresight conference many years ago.  He spent a lot time patiently explaining the basics of Quantum Mechanics to a single young student who sat near him to ask a few questions.  Imagine getting a free one-on-one tutorial from a Nobel Laureate on chemistry.  I didn't agree with some of his ideas about mechanosynthesis, but I was really impressed with his kindness and intelligence.  I have to wonder if exposure to carbon nanotubes caused his leukemia.

Does Chris (the owner of the car) have a YouTube channel?  There are some really good DSM-related channels here.  Even if he's not into the filmmaking aspect, just posting occasional shots of his builds would definitely get my subscription.

Heh. Don't worry about wasting 7 seconds. Some of us need the repetition to help pound in the lessons. I'm still at the level of trying to figure out why that "battery" thing isn't getting charged by the, um, "engine" thing in my 1G, but videos like this one inspire me to keep learning. On the bright side, since the battery is charged each night from a wall socket, I'm going to claim that I have a 4G63 + electric hybrid. Thanks for the ongoing inspiration, Jafro.

+William Dye Good news for you then... I plan to re-visit the GM alternator install in another video in the near future. It will include everything you need to know about how to fix your particular issue. I'm sorry it's not ready yet. It's centered around the GM alternator, but it will cover the pin-outs of the factory harness and common mistakes made when installing non-factory alternators. Mistakes that are easily avoided. It explains what PLFS and B means. DSMs only have 3 of those. 2 of them are unnecessary on DSMs... but 9 times out of 10 if a good alternator isn't charging, it's a ground problem. ;) Once you add a GM part to the mix, it's usually that as well as a pulley problem. The factory GM pulley is just too dang big. Spins too slow.

Search YouTube for a channel named "Jafromobile" and you'll find some excellent videos from a guy who fixes and tunes old engines for use in things like drag racing. In a recent (April 2014) video he spent 30 hours meticulously polishing and porting a 4G63 cylinder head. After all that time & effort, he then took the cylinder head to this shop for work that he couldn't do himself. In other words, this is a shop that perfectionist engine experts are willing to trust. If it's good enough for guys like Jafro, it's definitely good enough for me. Oh, and a word of perhaps weird-sounding advice: Jafro said that he always brings them a big box of Krispy Kreme donuts along with the engine to be fixed. Maybe he was just joking (personally, I'd get sick of donuts if customers did that every day). Still, if you're bringing over a big job to them, maybe it's worth a few bucks to give them that kind of tip in advance. I've never done that myself, but it's something that Jafro does, so I'll pass on the information.

(Note: the location has changed from 2510 s. 48th St. to 122 S. Antelope Valley Parkway) This is my preferred auto service station. I've been in Lincoln since 1979, and over the years have gone to several different places. I've never had a truly horrible auto-repair experience anywhere in Lincoln (except the one time that Sears forgot to tighten the bolts on a new tire). H & S, however, is my favorite of the bunch. They really do take the "honest" approach seriously. On several occasions they could have easily talked me into a more expensive repair, but instead told me (correctly) that I could get by with less money using a different approach. They're human -- one time they guessed that my old van would *probably* survive a trip to Texas, but it died halfway through Oklahoma. Nobody can be sure of that sort of thing, however, so I don't hold it against them. H&S is still my favorite auto repair shop, and I strongly recommend them.

We got a flat tire in the middle of a long road trip, and hobbled into Eagle Tire only because it was the closest shop we could find. When an out-of-towner needs car service in a hurry, they're pretty vulnerable to being overcharged, but Eagle fixed the tire quickly, helped us get the spare put away, and only charged us $19.25, which I guess is the standard rate. We left a $5 tip.
