    Well at least it’s solid. Mine’s falling apart. Haha

    I do take the bell cranks out every few years, sand them down and grease up the pins so they won’t freeze in place.

    I drilled and tapped the holes 1/4-20, pressed out the pin on the arm
    Then I noticed it was already split completely down one side. and then it fell apart...
    The other side I dismantled just for S&G I guess?
    Ordering new.

    Were they frozen? Sounds like the PO did zero maintenance.

    God damn, I'm sorry, I know that's a shit load of work, but you need some mufuckin punctuation. Even if you don't use it correctly, and you just write it how you talk, that fucking wall of a paragraph is just frontal Cortex killer material right there, for me.

    This is that fucked up voice to text shit, ain't it? :rofl:

    I really liked the yangyang flights, but they're a good bit more spensive and don't come in 30 packs. It throws off my beer math.

    Yuengling is good (it's only a half hour from my house) but so is Weihenstephaner lager. :)

    I remember when we first started getting black and tan down here. People went nuts. It was a shitshow. I need something with flavor. If I’m in PA, I want Tired Hands or Troegs. One of my PGH friends got my hooked on that Mad Elf stuff.

    I've never found a "craft" beer I liked, often too hoppy or so sour I thought it was sauerkraut juice. I want my beer to taste like beer, not citrus, not chocolate, not blueberry, etc, and not lagered in bourbon barrels so it tastes like bad whiskey. To tell the truth, the best beer I ever drank was Banks beer on Barbados but that's the only place you can get the real deal. Ah, enjoying a near frozen beer and a pepperoni pizza while sitting in the shade enjoying the view of the beach!

    I think that's what makes Troeg's stuff so nice. Nothing they brew (IMO) is like what you typically get from a place like Tired Hands, that's all about pushing the envelope. Troegs has been around for decades, predating all the froufrou beer.

    Best beer I ever drank was the most unfiltered dirtiest hefeweissen that the Munich beer gardens could offer me at that time. I have never had a better beer ever in my entire life. With that said anybody living near a Gordon biersch they're hefeweizen is pretty dang close to what you get in Germany.

    Bilstein says not to go above 1" because they assume no one buys new UCAs. You'll be fine.

    Can't go wrong with beers that have Germanic names.
