did ya see the hole in the Valve ? I still have NO Idea what that was there for ( the valve that is )
So we removed Patio stones , 12x12 cement pavers , dug down remover More Pavers , dug down some more , i felt around in to hole , found what felt like a Valve handle , dug some more , Bailed out water , Shit its a valve , Shit there is Water Squirting Out of the Top side of the valve Ran and turned OFF the water Got a pipe cutter , cut out the Fucking Valve I cut it close so as to Not have to add any pipe ( more on that in a sec) , went to Lowes , discussed the options with Carol , we had wanted a faucet in the back yard , so Hell No time like the present , got the faucet a 3/4 T and 2 3/4 straight fittings , i knew I would have to trim the existing pipe to fit , so No Biggie ,Right
Well when I started trying to fit this all togather I hear SNAP , and Im neeling there with about 6" of copper pipe connected to about 6" of Pvc in my habd , the water line Into the house is copper and they had connected a section of copper to the PVC to add the valve i guess , Shit , so hi ho hi ho Back to Lowes I go , get a piece of 3/4" copper pipe and another fitting , Measure the pipe i need takeing into account the fittings , cut the Pipe , push the fitting on said Pipe , push this into the T on the new faucet , shit the fitting wont fit on the PVC , Must be 1" , so Back to Lowes , snag a 3/4"to 1" fitting , Now the fitting wont Snug down on the Pvc Shit !!! Back to lowes with a Small Piece of the PVC , Dude explains that PVC is measured ID ( inside diameter ) copper is measured OD ( Out side diameter ) BS I say , Here Let me show you , and slides the Piece of PVC Over a piece of 3/4" copper , Well Ya learn something new Every day , so what do I do ??
I explain what im doing to him , he gets a pvc fitting that will screw Into a Union and 1 for the copper side as well ,
thus the pic and the comment that that sucked !!!

i wish i'd of taken pictures but today i fixed the honda 4-trax four wheeler we use regularly at work. you see it's like this. a while back, almost 8 months ago the starter switch burned up. actually i think it was longer than that. more like 2 years ago. anyway, it was rigged up where the starter was wired from the battery to the switch to the starter. well that won't work. what happens is this. the switch cannot handle the amperage so it burns up. could be two starts could be 20. never can tell. well for the last 6 weeks or so i have been pushing to wire this up back right. in other words, wire in a relay like it should be. then what happens is this: you push the starter button. the starter button is wired to the coil. the coil energizes then closes the starter contact therefore bypassing the load that was going through the switch. (helllllloooooo! that's the way it came from the factory!) so anyway, i found out today that the relay in the quad is new. ronnie just didn't know how to wire it up so he bypassed it. the thing is a piece of shit but it works and it works well. for whatever reason the original starter button was 86'ed. i opened up the housing and the wires were cut. short. no way to rewire it. not that i saw anyway. not without taking the complete thing apart. so here's what i did. i wired the new switch into the coil. then spliced in the negative to the return wire. then i ran a wire from the hot through the switch and on to the relay coil. for whatever reason, no wiring diagram of the scooter so had to improvise with a volt meter testing continuity, got it to where i could energize the coil. now second problem aroused. the starter positive post is jacked up. took me several tries to make it work. adjusted the nut to get a deeper penetration into the starter. prolly needs a new starter. duct tape and bailing wire be damned. the thing works. will try and take pictures of it tomorrow.
