We may not have the best weather yet for riding but the animals surely know the season. Over the last few days the swans are high overhead, following the Mississippi Flyway back to their summer homes.
It would seem these desperadoes are wasting their time......as long as she's got some wintered soybeans to pick through, she could care less about their displays, for the time being anyway. My bet is they'll stick with it though.
So which is the good one?ReplyDelete
Man, I hope I got the right one put back in there......I went for the dirty(er) one.Delete
Nice to see the wild turkeys hanging around.ReplyDelete
To see AND hear. They have a lot to say during this time of year, up and down the valley.Delete
The speedo drive almost looks like a piece of jewelry - yeah I know I'm such a chick. We have had full on spring for a couple of weeks and all the trees are coming into bloom and leaves appearing and it has been spectacularly mild as of late. Loving it.ReplyDelete
Dar, we'll have it again .....some day. Ginormous snowflakes last night, the ground white once again and so much ice on the cars this AM I couldn't get the door open.Delete
Saturday is VERY hopeful :)
it is impossible to get a speeding ticket on a 90 Honda... radar guns do not record the speed of dust.,, and the Police won't ride the brakes long enough to " pace " you. :)ReplyDelete
You know ....I've thought that very same thing on more than one of my small rides. Is having a finger shaken at me sort of the same thing as a ticket??Delete
... depends on .. which finger :)Delete
You may be right. With the speedometer finally engaged (GPS says the speedo very close) I put about 15 miles of real highway miles on today. Into the wind, knees in gave me 5 more miles an hour. With the wind, knees out gave me a bonus 2.5mph. Knees seem to have a great deal of impact on motorvation.Delete
Doug I agree with Dar, their look like jewelry... engagement rings actually, and the one on the right looks far more engaging than the one on the left. So I say the one on the right is the new one.ReplyDelete
David, you are correct. This is (supposed to be) worm gear power transmission. The direction of rotation turns 90 degrees. The gear on the left, for some reason, was unable to turn and the round "worm" of the driving rotation was unable to turn the large "worm gear" and left its imprint, the concave surface, on the face of the large gear.Delete
The worm was spinning, no longer able to engage the teeth of the worm gear, hence no speedometer rotation. I have not figured out why but a good guess would be that the speedo cable had corroded/broke and for whatever reason was unable to spin. The housing on the cable looks much newer than 1969 so my hunch is that it was replaced but was unable to solve the problem due to the worm system being the culprit.
