  Since I have made myself a somewhat honest promise to get back to finishing up my 1955 Chev, I started cleaning out the garage and DANG but I had NO IDEA I had so much "stuff" in thar,,,,,WinkLOL So far,,in 5 days,,I have wheeled out 4 wheelbarrows of various metal "Stuff" that is going to the junk iron place. Plus a couple of barrels of trash mostly books.
 Well,,bout a couple of weeks ago,,I was workin on a customer's A/C and I was having some issues with the hoses on my charging manifold,,,,Chit,,I ain't had this manifold but 25 years by my last countLOL  Right then,,,I decided next time I was close to Harbor Freight I would buy me a whole new manifold and hoses and throw this one in the junk brass pile,,,,,Wink Well,,,imagine my surprise when I start in moving chit out of the 55 when Lo & Behold and to my utter surprise,,,there sits an almost new A/C manifold with ALL three of the hoses including the high pressure hose,,,and new lookin gauges!! 
 Now,,,my question to me is ,,,Who did I steal this from or,,,where and when did I buy it,,,,prolly from a yard sale or,,,???? I have been racking my brain and I just cannot remember when, where or nuttin bout this tool,,,,dang,,hope I don't forget what time chow is,,,,,
 I better get back to the cleanin out,,,ain't no tellin what I'm liable to find from here,,,,,

Shoot Joe, don't fret over that.  I was only ~26 or so the first time I did something like that.  Needed to work on the motorcycle, knew I would need some certain tools for the job, so I went and bought them.  Got done, now where would I store tools like this.....Went to the logical place by my "system", and there was a set of them in there already!!!LOL

I’m gonna trade you a sure nuff rebuildable Carter YFA for that big Holley. You can bolt this yfa on the geo buggy and haul the mail. You’re gonna be the pride of the elk territory on that Geo powered beast.👍

Now just how the heck did my Holley get into YOUR garage???  Something funny is going on around here......

Thad, I've got a funny story about a Carter AFB.......
Danged four barrel.....well, the other 2 wouldn't open until the guy I was racin agin, his front bumper got to next to my front wheels.  Then they'd open up and away we'd go.  Dangdest thing I ever had.

Now Joe,, it's been too long that you have had my gauges that I couldn't tell you anything about them but I was smart enough to put my initials on them and that should be good enough. Oh and i also used my full first name on stuff too so if you have anything with "Stanley" on it just set them next to the gauges and I can get it all.

Oh Ted I’m a big fan of the AFB I think they’re the greatest for a daily driver hot rod. The YFA is another story. I think too much of ole Joe to trade mine to him but don’t be a tellin him cause I ain’t dun having fun.👍
