    Checked email. They emailed saying the tire was in over an hour before they called.

    They never called. I found a text on my phone giving a link to an app to track when its done. Says its done but no time given. Was expecting a call. I hurry down there and the closed forty five minutes before I got there.Never said they were closing at 6 just said should be done by 5:30. Not the first time stuff like this has happened. This is why we hate taking things out to get done. They could have kept the old tire and been able to mount the new one when it came in at four.

    Closest shop to the house says they are booked for a month. Went to tire shop said they had to order a tire and get it between two and tomorrow. They said its in so I go to get it and they say leave it here and we should have it done by 5:30. That was four. Its almost 6:30 now. Coming off a holiday weekend they are extra busy I guess.

    Pondering why I try fixing things. Ranger pickup had very little coming out of the muffler and sounded like it was leaking toward the front. Down on power. Got a good deal on a bolt in converter from Jegs. Got the back half of the exhaust unbolted despite looking really rusty. Can't find my sawz all so had to get the exhaust out the hard way dropping the axle and moving the shock out of the way. Go to unbolt the pipe at the header and broke the head off one of the bolts. It looks really seized in there. The other bolt looks pretty decent other than the tip where it comes out the back. Still thinking twice about messing with it. I think the muffler is more likely the problem but I have the front pipe here and don't know if it can be returned so might as well put it on. The flange at the middle was rotted and came off the pipe and there's some build up around the lip. Might be where it was leaking.

    Temporarily rigged up a muffler and turn down with an adapter a hanger and some metal zip ties. Pipe I ordered won't be here till Friday. Ordered a new saw but won't be here till Wednesday. Probably have to take it somewhere to get those bolts torched out.

    Why I've never checked - but the ball bearings rattle pretty good so it must be opposing.
