My Grandmother (96 in last December) was at a meeting of "Daughters of the Republic of Texas". A Tennessee woman there was in a conversation with my Grandmother. My Grandmother was giving her a ribbing about being there, and not being a Texan. The other elderly lady said "if it weren't for a bunch of Tennesseans, there wouldn't have been a Texas as soon as there was".

I accept that, and would have said "yes ma'am".

Tennessee has raised some really tough people, Jack Hinson, The Overmountain Men, and Alvin York to name a few.

I have seen that before. And they say oil and water don't mix.
The vehicle is a dodge pick-up with Cummins turbo diesel engine. Mid to late 90's I would say.
That is the aftermath of what a ruptured oil cooler looks like.
Oil cooler gets an internal crack, that allows the oil to enter the cooling system. Rarely will you get much coolant in the oil. This is because oil pressure is almost always higher than coolant pressure. Coolant pressure is 0-15 psi and oil pressure is 15-60 psi. This also is worse on a diesel because diesels normally hold over 2 gallons of oil (my 7.3 is 4 gallons) . You get 2+ gallons of oil mixed in to a cooling system that hold 8 and it looks like that.

Today's history lesson... There are people worse than 'Che.'

So... maybe AOC isn't a 'commie' after all. Sounds more like she is being led down the path of a 'fusion of Communism and National Socialism.' Because, well, that's national socialism!

Making them Nazi fascists... just what Antifa is protesting against.

Interesting what you learn from a T-shirt...

Cheers,

Sirhr

On the 22nd February, 1944, the pilot of a crippled B17 bomber, Mi Amigo, attempted an emergency landing in Endcliffe Park, Sheffield. In avoiding schoolchildren in the open area, he crashed into the rise behind the park cafe, and he and his crew were all killed. A man who witnessed the crash, Tony Foulds, has tended the memorial since it was placed in 1969, and has campaigned for a fly-past on the 75th anniversary. This is going to happen at about 0845 Zulu following a memorial service.

I feel sure that this will be of interest to many. The event is to be broadcast by the BBC.

Shit. Is it hot as well?
It can be. In general it goes unnoticed for awhile and doesn't make the vehicle inoperable.
Normally takes a week to a month to get noticed. If a person checks their oil regularly they will notice they have to add some, and just keep driving.

Because oil pressure exceeds radiator pressure under all conditions but hot engine at idle the oil pressure is enough to open the radiator cap. This causes coolant to be displaced. Some times people can smell the coolant but have no idea what is happening. Few days to a few weeks later oil starts venting from the cap and that makes a huge mess. That is when most people notice, when they smell oil and notice it is dripping off everything. The vented oil (coolant the same but evaporates) goes under the vehicle and collects on the undercarriage and drive train.

replace oil cooler, flush cooling system with water and non-foaming detergent (dish washer or clothes washer detergent/soap). may have to do that 3-4 times on the one posted. replace hoses (oil damages the rubber hoses). If caught early enough that is all. The one posted would need a radiator, and a water pump in my opinion.

And this shows the value of education and knowledge right there. At first I thought that I was reasonably well-versed in the history of the 20th century, particularly the WWII period. I had NO knowledge at all of this until I read this post. And for the last 30 minutes, I had been googling and looking up additional info on that guy.

Thank you for posting. (y)

AOC and her supporters are not a laughing matter, despite how absolutely batshit they appear to be. She may very well be the most significant threat to human rights and liberty in this new century so far. If you want something to really gnaw at you for a little while............Think about how easily Charles Manson and Ted Bundy could have become politicians with IMMENSE follower bases, had they not been caught or implicated in the deeds that they done. Never underestimate psychopaths.
