That's a neat picture, Rob. Wonder where they came up with that name?
The original department store was named "Ayres", after the founder.

Ayr-Way was their version of the discount store.
Think K-Mart, or maybe S. S. Kresge...

Re: Tranny output seal

Nothing to do with your issue. Your name reminded me of this old store chain:

Re: Tranny output seal

All I have to add (I have never replaced one of these seals in my life) is I remember hearing that this gearbox output seal is installed "backwards" of what logic might imply.

Re: What are your boots?

Held used to have a nice touring gauntlet glove that had roo palms. I looked around for them last night and couldn't find them. But apparently most of their current lineup continues the tradition. Falconers like roo, too: http://northwoodsfalconry.com/products-page/gauntlets/gauntlet-outlaw-brown-ka...

Re: Wheel building.

Thanks for that!
Somewhere on my computer is a copy of the picture from the cover of one of the magazines this article appeared (?).
I didn't see it in the thumbnails on my phone (small).
