It was kind of a long week, but there was progress made in several areas. Number one being that DH is feeling better! Hooray! It’s a life long process, that inward looking self study, but one that has the potential for making life a little easier.
|dismantling of the RZR motor|
One thing that has really been helping him is to have a project and it’s a good one. Our little Polaris RZR is sick. It has a bad valve from breathing in too much of the desert dust. It’s not only bad for human lungs, it’s bad for vehicles that are designed to run around off road. So he has been merrily dismantling the RZR.
He also has plans for making a video about it and posting it on YouTube. He did a lot of research about this process and could not find any video lessons on how to do what he is doing. Yes, there is a manual, and yes, one could just take it to the dealer and have them fix it ($$$$). But, he is very good at this kind of work. I recall a time up north when he and some friends got together to rebuild an engine. They started about 9:00 in the morning and by 6:00 p.m. they had it back in the vehicle they had pulled it out of and running. I think that is just amazing. This of course, will take a little longer as he is learning as he goes. I’m just happy that he is doing something he loves to do. You can check out his intro, just click on the arrow in the box to the right. Once he gets the whole video done I’ll post a link for those of you who are really interested in how to rebuild the top end of a 2013 Polaris 900 XL RZR.
