I'm on the razors edge between chuff and naff.  Got a line on a guy with a mess of oldies, has a Monaco GP tucked into the lot but isn't wanting to split up the lot.  Lot isn't interesting enough to justify for just the Monaco and I'm trying to convince him to split it off.  If I can walk with a MGP I'm chuffed to the xtreme.  If I can't I'm only out so whiny texts but still naffed at the missed opportunity.

Chuff

verb 

1. (transitive; usually passive) ( Brit, slang) to please or delight: he was chuffed by his pay rise


It's its own thing now. 
More of a noun describing a state of satisfaction as if it is an object to be acquired/found or taken away/lost.

There's road work going on in front of my office, with a hydrovac running constantly. For the last couple weeks, and probably a few months going forward, I get to hear this sound for hours every day.

Short , pleasant version of the last several months:

 Van vanished one fine morning.  It Got repo'd,  as I ran out of money to make payments.   I was fortunate to work out a deal with them to get it back... but it tacked on another 600$ to what I owed.

 Just a few months ago,  I was sleeping in my minivan.   Couldnt afford a place to live.  Middle of winter, NY, ... very cold.

 Moved into a place I can just barely afford,  and its a few feet from a busy intersection.   Loud traffic,  Pounding Subwoofers from cars sitting at the lights, that shake the building... at all hours of the day and night.   

 At least twice a month.. a small resturaunt across the street has a DJ play music...  and they must have a +10,000 watt sound system.   Even with a good 50 feet or so away... each subwoofer hit is like an earthquake.  Music still audible, even after insulating the hell out of all window areas.  This goes like from 10pm  to  2 / 3am...

 Place I work at...  someone must have a dog with flee's..   as they are now feasting on me daily... itching badly...

 Vans blinkers are often clicking the wrong signal than what I choose.   Electrical issue.  Probably cant afford to repair before this Aug... when it wont pass inspection,  due to another electrical error that makes the ABS go on/off randomly  (now a solid brake error showing).

 Had to move my belongings like 4 times this year so far.

 Jaw is too far forward... needs operation.   Its very uncomfortable to have to pull the jaw inwards.. and hold it there... just to be able to close my mouth.   

 Dental Partial that forms my 4 front fake teeth..  doesnt fit.   I bite down on metal all day/night long... and the plastic has ground down to the metal plate from teeth digging into it.  It will probably break completely in a year...  if Im lucky...

 Glasses need replacing.  All scratched up.  Frame suddenly broke at the worse possible time... and was not repairable.  I was lucky... I found reading glasses,  that used the same frame parts... and after some time.. was able to strip the scratched coating off the lenses.  But there is some distortion on the lenses.. and this causes me fatigue / headaches at times.

 Cant eat / drink   eggs, wheat, dairy, soy.    Have to spend several hours prepping and cookinh dishes from scratch.   Expensive food costs.  Lot of time spent cooking, and cleaning ... instead of relaxing,  and or creating.

 Finally got healthcare started up...  then the state suddenly canceled my policy due to a mess up with my PO box.  Got started again... and hospital seemed to have been claiming that they didnt get my two money order payments... and,  they only covered half the price of my med... which was shocking...

 Health is random.  Some days Im ok.  Others I have bloating, constipation, joint pains, weak yellowed teeth, muscle / body / feet  pains,  migraines.   Sometimes,  one or the other...  sometimes a combination of several or all.

 Any interpersonal stresses,  such as an argument... causes me a ptsd reaction now  (due to former abuses + health degradation).   Will get a near instant migrane,  and my whole body will feel like it was just dipped into a deep-fryer.   Burning fire sensation... inside and out.   Then I get so fatigued from it... that I usually have to crash-nap / sleep it off.

  Some nights Im so exhausted, that I crash in my work chair...  and or can not find the energy to cook dinner + lunch  for the next few days.  So I end up eating ham slices,  and multivitams,  for my lunch and dinner.

 Debt collectors calling often...


 I do not hate life anymore  (thank the heavens I learned meditation,  and found great help though it, and enlightening material ... )   
...but I just cant seem to do more than float, or sink...   and its getting harder to keep up the fight,  as age climbs...

 The hardest part for me now...  is not being able to be creative.   No time / energy..  and or at times... resources..   to be able to do great things...
And so depression eventually finds its way to me...


 Edit:  Chuff read backwards.. pretty much sums it up.

What is it you create when you do have time?

 If you look around,  you will see some of my game design concept artworks.    Most of my time was dedicated to this.

    I have stacks of design works,  going back since I was a little kid...  but my art skills were far lacking.   Ive been working
to advance these skills,  and have produced some recent pictures,  that far better illustrate what Id like to get made.

  I also want to try my hand at oil and water painting.   Ive done the bob ross stuff when I was 20.. but that
method is too generic and limited.  Its time to learn the real deal.     Ive also used acrylics,  and recently helped
to restore a pinball playfield... but overall acrylics do not blend well,  and lack translucency and vibrance of oils.

 I Want to build a 100%  mechanical ice cold beer game variation.  Possibly using a pinball for more challenge...
 Maybe a large scale  "two player only"   version.. with a bowling ball...

 Want to try to redesign a pinball machine...

 Have ideas to try for personal transport,  like a bionic animal-gate converter.

 Still want to build something to play the classics...

 Would love to get the right people together,  to create a better controller, for digital art input.

 Have many other mechanical based game/toy  ideas,  as well as game experiments Id like to try.

 Want to make some form of force-feedback simulator.   Either something somewhat typical... or maybe:

 - A fully cable driven harness,  that allows you to be lifted, slid, moved... in all directions.

 - A special game controller for Target Earth..  where you are attached to a counter-weighted arm/seat...  that mimics the Mecha's floating jump gate...
thus adding a really cool feel to the game.   Force feedback (motors and or bass shakers) to feel the explosions, 
and separate feedback for your guns firing (solenoids).

 - A special controller for the game  "Kick".   A unicycle like setup,  with bike pedals / bike wheel   -  to deliver the analog speed and direction. 
With a bar-suspended, air filled ball, that you actually have to kick,  to active the kick button function.   Maybe add the addition of a handlebar set,  for
traditional bike games  (or even something like Prop-Cycle.  Paperboy converter?.. etc)

 - Still have a great Multi-Spinner design Id like to try to put together.
 - As well as some other special arcade controllers / converters.

 - And I have make a Starwars yoke... considering that somehow,  mine arcade yoke was either lost in the shuffles.. or outright stolen...
like my speakers, my ultimark encoder,  my real high carbon steel chinese broadsword.. and a bunch more...   =.(

 - Want to experiment with Blacklight UV paintings...


 So much I want to do...

Power was out all day today.  AGAIN.  I think that's 3 or 4 times this year.  I'm going to have to install a transfer switch or something as I'm too old/fat/ect to keep running cords all over the place just for the power to come back on when I finally get everything setup right.

My F250 decided not to start after we arrived to watch fireworks last night. Totally embarrassed because I also drove another family. Truck cranks but won't start. Checked all the fuses, connections under the hood. no luck. Cracked a cold one and tried to enjoy the show.  Then begged for rides, LOL.

it's still up there...gotta try recovery after work today.

Why did I want a diesel again? (still worth it)

I have one of those (totally worth it.)  Is it throwing any codes at all?  Seems like anything which would prevent starting would be showing something on the dash.  Glow plugs?  Glow plug controller?  Fuel filter?

Hope you can get it running to get it home.  Mine is 4 tons dry, so anything other than an equipment hauler is a non-starter for trailering it.

My dad borrowed my truck yesterday so I took his car. I got two miles down the road and the oil filter came completely off. I pulled over immediately. I called a buddy and he went to the auto parts store and picked up oil and a filter. Then he stopped at my house and picked up my floor jack and jack stands. The road looks like I was playing live action Spy Hunter. It was annoying, but I was only sidelined for a half hour. It turns out my dad just got an oil change last week. He is paying them a visit today.

That is a story I hear over and over and over and over again.  Oil change done poorly resulting in failure.  My aunt seized her engine once because the idiots didn't put any oil in after they drained it.

I checked for codes...nothing. I have a scangauge too and no codes found on that either

I'm gonna check the Glow plug control Module...

It's summer... Glow plugs don't mean much right now. Heat of compression from cranking over many times is more than enough to get a diesel started in the summer months. You have a fuel delivery problem.

Yes. I'm a certified diesel technician.

It depends on the part of the country you live in, but generally I agree.  However, I currently have 4 out at the moment (already have a full set of replacements on hand) and cold starts on cooler mornings or late at night, is rough.  If my batteries were weaker, I don't think it would be starting.  There are also plenty of sensors on these vehicles, and they still think it's necessary to light up the glow plugs on a cold start, even when its warmer outside.

But you are right.  If the vehicle was driven to somewhere that was any distance away, there should be enough residual heat in the block to assist starting for the ride home.  The injectors, glow plugs, GP controller and fuel pump should throw codes, and the chance that those are bad with no engine light on the dash is pretty low, so what's left?  Hydrolocked? Cracked injector head allowing exhaust gas into the fuel line?

Knave:  When you turn on the key, do you hear the normal fuel pump noise while the lines pressurize?  Have you recently drained the water separator?  From what I have read, the seals on the drain can go bad, and allow air into the line.  Could also be the fuel filter, or the fuel shut-off.

I would agree with this, simply because there isn't much else on a diesel that can cause it to not fire, lol.  But I wonder what fuel delivery issues aren't going to throw a code.  I suppose it depends on the year of the truck.. older it is the less likely it will catch a problem like no power to injectors or a failed fuel pump.  I'm no expert though, so for all I know you could have something as simple as a cracked fuel line causing loss of prime and no sensor to determine if you have fuel pressure or not...

I had a problem on a gas engine (86 nissan) recently that I never would have guessed - wouldn't start or even fire a little, right after I just drove it.  Drove to get some hardwood at a cabinet shop, loaded the truck and it wouldn't start.  Acted just like fuel delivery issue.  Thing is, it happened when fuel was low, and after I ran and got gas, it fired up, so I thought it was just a bad gas gauge and I ran out.  Then it happened again after filling it.  Was running one minute, then after gassing up it wouldn't start.  The cause turned out to be the coolant temp sensor stuck reading -40*.  It was choking the hell out of the a/f mixture, which was fine when engine was cold, but not so much after it warmed up.. Problem solved, right?  Then a few weeks later, my son drove to a store, and when he came out, it wouldn't start.  Fuel gauge was low again, but not empty, so we figured for sure this time it was fuel.  Gassed it up and still nothing.  Turned out this time it was the coil - it had cracked on the bottom, arc'd, and took out the distributor and electronic ignition.  What a pain.  In both cases I would have sworn it was fuel delivery related.

I would agree with this, simply because there isn't much else on a diesel that can cause it to not fire, lol.  But I wonder what fuel delivery issues aren't going to throw a code.  I suppose it depends on the year of the truck.. older it is the less likely it will catch a problem like no power to injectors or a failed fuel pump.  I'm no expert though, so for all I know you could have something as simple as a cracked fuel line causing loss of prime and no sensor to determine if you have fuel pressure or not...

Unfortunately, there's a lot which can go wrong with fuel delivery on some of these vehicles.  On mine, the injectors are driven by oil, so if any part of that system fails, the injectors don't work.  While the injectors themselves are part of the fuel delivery system, the systems which make them work are more loosely related.  A plugged oil filter could even stop the flow of fuel, but I would still expect to see some kind of code.

Randy... ::)

I find it mildly hysterical you're trying to attempt to troubleshoot a vehicle problem without the vehicle in front of you.

"Engine cranks, but won't start - no CEL" has probably one of the biggest troubleshooting trees of any vehicle problem. You gotta follow the troubleshooting steps. If you skip a step, you'll waste time for nothing. My previous years of experience, lean my thought more towards a fuel delivery issue and not an electrical issue, since it cranks over fine (one of the first steps of almost any troubleshooting tree is to check the battery connections). But, to reiterate, follow the proper troubleshooting steps. If you can't, take it to a technician who is capable.

And Randy, don't forget about the fuel return line... if that's obstructed, engine no runny. Point is, there are many components that could fail in a fuel system. Don't be just a parts changer. Find the problem, fix the problem. Don't shotgun ---steaming pile of meadow muffin---.

Hey in a recent thread he went on to try and explain the effects of alcohol on rubber even though I worked almost exclusively on printers (which often require a touch of alcohol on their rubber parts for cleaning) for a 4 year period.  Don't feel bad.  ;)
