Really no point to this post, I just appreciate any opportunity to call my Cat engine a pos!
You don't always mention your cat engine.

Yeah, I do, if I get a dollar for every time I mention it I have 69,998 more mentions until I’m equal to expenses this piece of garbage has cost me.
Slow motion stress relief.

If you would care to forward me a cheque for 69,997 I will stop mentioning it...maybe.

True, 265 a tonne. Three loads from that one mind you.

Following a repeated instruction and now that I’ve done the photo deposit trick I figured it out exactly, next 50.660 tonnes of peas will be free! Actual peas. No trucks or trailers included.

Does it happen to be a C13? Because we have a similar relationship with our C13

1997 7.2 L 3126 HEUI. That originally meant Hydraulic Electronic Unit Injectors but became known to me as H$ll Eventually Unites Insanity.

One time I sold a used car to a guy and we had settled on $3,800 cash. He handed me an envelope full of hundreds, which I proceeded to count. When I went over $4k it became very obvious that there was a waaay too much money in the envelope which I pointed out. He turned red and said he had given me the wrong envelope. Made me wonder how much cash he kept in the house...

He was a mechanic by trade... a young European immigrant. I've worked with some of them that didn't trust banks much.
