  1. Not sure if this has been suggested but have you recently changed the oil? Perhaps going with synthetic oil? Some clutches don't work well in synthetic oil. Not sure if that would have any bearing on the popping out of gear problem though.
  2. So maybe the thread title is a bit misleading?
  3. As long as it's anonymous I'd give it a try.
  4. Perhaps some calls to Duterte's corruption hotline would reduce your blackout problems.
  5. I have just a small 1K genset. It's enough to run the ref and some lights. If we have a blackout go for more than a couple hours I run it for an hour or so. To connect to the house I took the male ended cord that is specific to the gen set and added the male end of an extension cord. The genset is in the garage for noise reduction. If there's a blackout I turn of the breaker to isolate my property from the main power, turn off the well pump and anything else not needed, start the genny and then plug it into any outlet in the garage or wherever I want. Easy.
  6. Or if you do, then do it right and you're safe from them anyway.
  7. Yeah, I saw he was on Siquijor which is why I asked. I really have no experience with Siquijor. I also noted he was renting and one of the advantages of renting is not having a bunch of 'stuff' holding you so you can just up and leave with relative ease. That would make me think real hard about getting 'stuff' like generators.
  8. If this sounds odd to you you're not alone. But if you look at Salty's post on pg 1 and on the IRS site you'll see that you have to prove her ID and that she's a foreign national. You don't have to prove the 2 of you are married. ???? That would be my advice. File now as single and then amend with the W-7 and her pp when you get it. UNLESS, she's getting the pp to go to the US on a spousal visa in which case I would wait to amend the return until she is in the US and you can amend it with her SSAN.
  9. First thing. Is your area prone to blackouts and are they long enough for you to care? We don't have them very often. Maybe once every 6 months longer than a few minutes and those are usually scheduled. Good time to defrost the ref.
  10. I think this ad probably holds the record for most times posted in LiNC.
  11. Especially that ridiculous afro trying to make him look blacker than he is.
  12. My problem with backing out is 2 fold. 1. Once putting the vehicle in reverse and starting back there will always be a handful of idiots, peds, trikes, scooters, that interpret this as a signal to go behind me from either direction. I know mom made it very clear when I was 4 to stay away from a moving car, especially a backing car, and going behind it was not just stupid but rude. 2. Second, there is often some helpful twit that wants to stand behind me and give unintelligible signals, GTFO!! and read # 1. I've been backing up since before your grandpa had a gleam in his eye and I don't need (yet another) moron behind me.
  13. Wonder how many of those you can get printed up in Mexico for $1000? Heavy on the term, former. Nothing fishy about it. The guy's a worthless POS. Are you missing something here?
