Chapter 1

There are so many tid bits of wisdom that can help make life easier. Some of this knowledge is promoted as secretive by marketing gurus trying to profit but I rather just highlight the most helpful information in this book. I am always questioning if this is the best format to publish this wisdom? Maybe you can comment and share some helpful ideas that may make this book a smoother read!

 As I travel along my path I record the most helpful secrets and organize them in the following pages. Let’s begin with some of the amazing creations in the world today that you may not know about. The 1% profit from hiding and suppressing these inventions and they do everything they can to keep them from you.

PLASTIC OIL EXTRACTOR

[blest.co.jp] A Japanese inventor named Akinori Ito was fed up with all the plastic litter in the world so he studied large industrial machines used to extract the oil out of used plastic and designed an extractor small enough for home use.

The smallest model of his Blest Machine is listed with a sale price in the neighborhood of $10,000 but the unit could be assembled out of raw materials for much less.

You insert plastic into a sealed holding chamber that heats the plastic until it vaporizes and the oil and impurities separate. The impure vapor escapes leaving the oil to condense upon cooling. It is then ready to be used for things like cooking, heating and biofuel mixing. It would be great to have a similar device with our volunteer teams when they are picking up recycling in littered areas. The down side is that the small mobile units take a few hours to break down the plastic and the chamber only holds about the equivalent of a standard plastic grocery bag.

Affordable small scale recycling machines like the Blest model needed to be available since the beginning of the plastic revolution in the 1920s. Without introducing a proper disposal and recycle education to consumers in the beginning, civilization quickly lost control of the plastic plague.

Most scientists didn’t think about the harm their creations would cause to the planet. Industry leaders were so excited about all the possible products they could make that hardly anyone cared about the consequences of the waste.

Today, nearly 100 years later, we are surrounded by a plastic prison of wasteful products that strangle mother earth. As you read this, look around and you will see some form of plastic. If you are reading a digital copy of this book, the reading device is likely made of molded plastic.

The danger lies in the chemical composition of the plastic and how it is used by the consumer. The companies that decide what chemicals are used are all part of an association called the American Chemistry Council (ACC). They team up together to contribute to politicians and legally fight off regulators that try to pass or enforce laws against the use of their chemicals. They also form internet sites to promote their products with illusions of being in the best interest of the world. They use names like Progressive Bag Affiliates, Save the Plastic Bag and a variety of plastic bag recycling groups.

If you are not worried about the transfer of cancer causing chemicals into the bodies of innocent children unable to defend themselves maybe some other points of interest will convince you to stop contributing to the plastic plague. Think about the following facts reported in the documentary “Bag It”.

– Approximately 300 million cups alone are used 1 single time and disposed of every day just from coffee shops surveyed. That does not include soda cups from gas stations and fast food chains which could easily be another 300 million a day. Now, add a realistic guesstimate of around another 100 million cups and plates that come from irresponsible home users for parties and those used outdoors.

– The average person purchased 800 lbs. of packaging in 2010

– Disposable plastic diapers amount to over a ton of waste per year per child.

– Approximately 1.036 BILLION plastic bags are used in the U.S. every DAY!

A source cited in the documentary “Bag It”, claims that less than 5% of these non aluminum items are recycled back into industry. If a business would step up and provide their own recycling bins for their products and return them back to their manufacturing facilities it would make a noticeable difference to their local landfills and overflow waste transporters.

Compare the recycling rate of plastic, glass & paper with nationally valued materials like copper and aluminum for example. The metals are easily cashed in at facilities everywhere so they have a much higher rate of being turned in for recycling.

There are good forms of plastic made out of hemp and other natural compounds but these products are mostly custom ordered. Corn and hemp based cardboard paper packaging, bowls and similar products made by a company like Cereplast, should replace the petro plastic items as well. TetraPak is another good source for biodegradable packaging.

Toxic petro plastic items should not be allowed to come in contact with our food and water. It should also not be used in any products that are at risk of being chewed on. Several varieties of plastic release toxins just by touch and most of the time you are not wearing gloves so your skin is absorbing those toxins. If that is not enough reason to stop using plastic straws, consider the fact that they have a dominant presence on the best ocean beaches in the world.

 There are studies that explain how BPA had leached into nearly 90% of people by 2015. BPA stands for Bisphenol A. BPA is a chemical that has been used to make plastics since the 1960s. BPA is found in polycarbonate plastics and epoxy resins. Polycarbonate plastics are used in containers that store food and beverages, such as water bottles. They are also used in other consumer goods.

 Epoxy resins are used to coat the inside of metal products, such as food cans, bottle tops and water lines. Some dental sealants and composites also contain BPA.

 Research has shown that BPA can seep into food or beverages from containers that are made with it. BPA can have negative impacts on the brain and prostate gland, children’s behavior and cause high blood pressure.

There are plenty of good uses for bio plastic in technology. Without plastic moldings we would not have devices to mass communicate and coordinate our efforts to reverse the destruction of human civilizations. The biggest problem is that the wrong ingredients are being used to create the plastic products. Petroleum and non biodegradable additives are being used instead of silicone or degradable plant oils like algae, hemp, corn or soy.

Silicone containers are slowly replacing the harmful plastic containers. Silicone can be more flexible which allows it to be flattened or folded like bag containers but yet sturdy enough to be stackable.

Ford Motor company shows that is possible to avoid petroleum based fiberglass and plastics by using hemp based versions. Ford promoted an all hemp car in the early 1920s. Read all about it at [HempCar.org] In 2015, oil prices dropped below $39 a barrel. Only a few times this millennium has the price dropped that low. This happens when environmental hot topics like electric vehicles, renewable energy, and recycling reach a trending point that the Petroleum groups and American Chemistry Council feel threatened. They lower the prices to increase demand until the trends decrease. For example, when prices are so low, recycling centers have to shut down because it costs more to process the used plastic than it costs to purchase new plastic stock from manufacturers.

Here are the basics of the CARES Emergency Relief Act

I am receiving tons of messages asking for help blazing a trail through the relief programs so this blog will continue to be updated every time I answer a new question.

How Covid 19 has Affected me?
I started the year with high hopes. We had a medium size build and January was normal but then in Feb. my partner panicked from the virus and he choose to withhold my pay. I can’t blame him. The world is a survival of the fittest society more than ever now.
Basically I’m seeing this everywhere I look because people have panicked and they don’t know which way we are going to go from day to day.

For the same reason, I had two deals scheduled that have postponed their remodels and no one is showing any interest in scheduling free remodel consults.
My publishing and art orders are way down. And we have not had any donations to the foundation. We dare not even ask for funding over $100 until this is resolved.

Our shop sales decreased week to week and now there is a Mandatory Lock down so there will be no sales income until that is lifted.The STAY AT HOME ORDER was just activated for our counties and all the major city counties initiated this or are initiating it shortly. FOOD or work related travel only.

One positive out of this is that my computer consults are increasing. I am preparing a few advertisements to make up for the remodeling shortage.

I am also having more time to focus on my self care, wellness, gardening, art creation, house/vehicle chores and writing etc.

HOW ARE YOU BEING AFFECTED?!

Here are the answers to the CARES ACT and stimulus questions. Keep asking and I will keep updating.

SELF EMPLOYED STIMULUS (Use CareerOneStop.org)
$600 plus your states weekly unemployment amount

Section 2102 (II) Explains:
Covered Individuals INCLUDE:
(II) is self-employed, is seeking part-time employment, does not have sufficient work history, or otherwise would not qualify for regular unemployment or extended benefits under State or Federal law or pandemic emergency unemployment compensation under section 2107 and meets the requirements of subclause (I)

(FULL CARES ACT @ Congress.gov) https://tinyurl.com/ty8qbkv
https://www.nytimes.com/article/coronavirus-stimulus-package-questions-answers.html

DISASTER UNEMPLOYMENT ASSISTANCE program (File with your state office)
https://www.law.cornell.edu/cfr/text/20/625.6
Everyone gets at least 13 weeks, along with the extra $600 payment.
Self-employed workers will also be eligible for the additional $600 weekly benefit provided by the federal government.

FAMILY CARE STIMULUS (File your taxes today!)
$1200 ea. plus $500 per kid deposits are being processed and deposited within 3-4 weeks for those who have filed taxes or file ASAP.
https://www.npr.org/2020/03/25/821514231/whats-in-it-for-you-1-200-checks-13-weeks-of-unemployment-payments-and-more

RENT & UTILITY ASSISTANCE
Section 4023: Interest FREE / Penalty FREE Loan Forbearance of Residential Mortgage
https://tinyurl.com/ty8qbkv
Mortgage payments and thus existing rent payments are to be suspended for 30 days and can be extended up to 2 additional 30 day periods interest & penalty free. The borrower just needs to write their loan officer and explain Covid19 has put their tennants or selves out of work and into a financial hardship. LOAN HOLDERS MUST CALL and request the 30 day extension prior to the 30 day expiration OF EACH FORBEARANCE PERIOD. Loans are simply extended as if this forbearance period never existed.

FOR LOAN HOLDERS: IF your loan officer gives you any trouble, get it in writing from an email with them and then I can help you get it higher up the ladder for approval.

Eviction efforts are outlawed as explained in 4023 (d) until the forbearance expires.

*In addition, most of the utility and phone companies have informed customers that their payments can be suspended without disruption of service, fee’s and interest.

IF you have children, you just declare that you have to stay home to home school and provide daycare and this protects you by law from loan payments, rent and from being fired from employment. There are plenty of other reasons COVID19 has caused us economic hardship so the eligibility requirements are extremely vague.

What ever your situation is out there, please stay safe and blessings of health to everyone out there!

*As written in LIFE WISDOM: Pandemic Prep by T. Frentz

https://freehelpinghands.wordpress.com/2020/03/12/life-wisdom/

 

SANITIZER

Gather some stems of an Aloe vera plant or Aloe gel. This keeps the alcohol from excessively drying out your skin and provides the gel like substance. Without Aloe vera, the mixture would be more like a spray.

There are a few essential oils you can use for sanitizer. The most recommended essential oil to use for sanitizer is tea tree. Tea tree oil features antibacterial properties as well as anti-inflammatory, antifungal, and antiviral properties. While research is limited on which viruses tea tree essential oil can successfully combat, it is thought to fight off the pathogens associated with acne, staphylococci, micrococci, Enterococcus faecalis, and Pseudomonas aeruginosa.

Cinnamon is another recommended essential oil for making hand sanitizer. A 2015 study published by Tuoro College found that cinnamon effectively “deactivated” the viral components in some organisms. To make your sanitizer smell good, use 8-16 drops of lemon, orange, peppermint, or lavender.

If you’re using 91% Isopropyl alcohol use a 3:2 ratio; 3 tablespoons alcohol to tablespoons of Aloe. If you are using 99 percent Isopropyl alcohol, you will want a 2:1 ratio. With 91 percent Isopropyl alcohol for example, pour 1 cup into a mixing bowl and add 2/3 cup Aloe and the oil.  Mix it all together with a spoon, then use a funnel to transition the mixture into a bottle with a pump.

LIFE WISDOM

 

CHAPTER II: PREP IT

Being prepared for chaos is something that you should consider a daily priority if you want to live comfortably during a pandemic. In some instances chaos may explode with only minutes notice while others may give you weeks of warning. For example, an asteroid can be discovered weeks in advance but predicting the affected area would cause more damage than the asteroid itself. Predicting a target zone in advance would cause mass panic and extreme chaos. The pandemonium from fear would shut down crucial life baring systems before the asteroid damage. For this reason, the media would never predict the location of a large strike until the last 24 hours. Only the highest people on the pyramid would be notified any sooner.

The highest probability for chaos belongs to a biological pandemic. It has happened many times over recorded history. And it will continue to happen more and more often with the damage being caused to our climate by the human species. One positive thing about a biological pandemic is that most of the world will have plenty of notice to increase their preparations at a safe and calm rate. I recommend watching the Netflix documentary called “Pandemic” to help you understand what happens during an outbreak.

 

The purpose of this chapter is to share how I prepare and live comfortably through these biological pandemics. Some viruses may spread from person to person through pathogens attached to water droplets. This means it can spread faster and further then imaginable through numerous avenues.

The initial strain could be created by the bacteria of two different life forms combining to create a new unknown virus with no working cure. Bats are one of the leading carriers of bacteria. Bats could simply drop their bacteria over produce or seafood at a market. Once that bacteria infested food is eaten or even touched, the next person or animal in contact begins to mix their bacteria with the other two and before we know it, a super flu type of virus is being spread.

It spreads fast and may even spread silently with long delays in symptoms. The region where it first spreads may just think that it is a common strain. It usually takes weeks of testing to realize it has unique symptoms that can not be cured with existing medicine. By the time local experts declare the new virus it will be too late to contain it in that region. Anything that can be spread by breath and infected droplets on a surface will spread similar to a wildfire. People will touch the virus infected droplets and it will attach to their body. The droplets then transfer to ports of entry and enter the blood stream to multiply. You itch your nose and eyes every few minutes on average. You often touch your mouth or touch a glass and then the droplet on the glass touches your mouth for example. A list of how droplets transfer would be several pages long. The further an area is from the origination, the longer the people there will have to prepare. Unfortunately, the disease will travel fast on airplanes and you will not have very long. Large transporters like planes and boats will unfortunately bread the virus to a lot of the people on board.

To minimize the risk of exposure you have to wash your hands after every time you touch something at risk of being infected. You need to spray disinfectant on anything in question. You need to have disinfectant wipes for things that you don’t want to spray or wash. You need a sanitizing gel for situations where you are not near running water and soap. If you have facial hair and refuse to shave it off while in an infected area, you may want to rub sanitizer through it often. You will also want to put Triple antibiotic gel in your nostrils to kill infected spores as they enter.

You do not need to change much about the way you live, you will just need to help remind everyone you know to follow these basic hygiene rules. One of the biggest changes will be your actions around others with weak immune systems. You will need to sanitize your items and hands before entering the personal space of others with high risk. You will also want to drink plenty of electrolytes and take a variety of the immune boosters I discus in the health section of this book. And don’t forget to increase your fitness activities and wellness practices.

When you notice someone questionably ill nearby, avoid them. You can still go out in public but use common sense as noted above. As shown in previous pandemics, most every public event and venue would need to be closed for about 4 weeks to allow the spread to be quarantined. Even those of us who do our best to avoid infection will still have to stay away from public places. No going to work, school, stores, church, concerts or other similar public places for a few weeks to allow the health care facilities time to process the increased traffic of people in critical condition. These public events expose too many people to the virus in tight quarters and many new hot zones are traced back to them.

The businesses that provide services in demand during the pandemic will adapt to meet new health regulations. They will either deliver goods or provide drive up window exchanges. Most businesses will reduce their hours to increase efficiency. Most public spaces like parks, resorts, sport facilities and restrooms will be sealed off.

People showing infected symptoms will struggle to get tested. After the first few days of discovering a community spread, test kits will not be assembled at the same rate of people being infected and people will be refused testing. At first, only those with severe symptoms will be tested and the rest will be instructed to self isolate and treat themselves with increased hygiene procedures and electrolytes. People with pre-existing illness or immune diseases along with the very young and the elderly may not be able to cope with the respiratory symptoms on their own. They will need to occupy a medical bed and breathing machine. If they are too ill to eat or breathe on their own they will need IV drips full of nutrients.

Care facilities will be overwhelmed because there will not be a cure or vaccine for a long time and patients will be continuously cycled in and out of emergency rooms and intensive care units. The majority of US citizens will finally agree that insurance has no right to be involved with health care.

INSURANCE will be the biggest hurdle for treating the sick. INSURANCE will stop care providers from doing their job by declining to pay for treatments.

INSURANCE will force infected people to be refused testing and it will push them back into the community where they will continue spreading the disease. THE REST OF THE WORLD that practices socialized health care will flatten the curve of spread at a much more successful rate because everyone will be tested and treated at a consistent rate.

In locations where there are not enough care facilities, people will be left in their beds praying for home visits. In many cases, these people will be transferred to large facilities and forcefully quarantined from any outside contact. Entrances will be guarded and sealed. People will be examined for symptoms and possibly segregated from loved ones by force. People near death will be removed from the machines before they take their last breathe. The shortage of machines will require it to be this way to allow a higher probability of recovery for those in the early stages of the disease. Just think back to all of the Nazi videos and stories you are familiar with. This is the reality of a biological pandemic.

Tests will be too sparse at first and the lack of people being able to be tested will obscure the true numbers of those infected. This will contribute to the improbability of accurate data to assist in the fight for a cure.

About the Author

Tim Frentz (T) is an artist, eco activist, gardener, soccer player, business consultant, fitness trainer, author and practitioner of Yoga who recorded his spiritual journey in this new age work “the Helping Hands Spirit” and a comic book series called “the ventures of HELPING HANDS”.

He was reborn in Grand Island, Nebraska USA in 1977. His early autobiography was first published in 2012, seven years after the death of his father whom inspired T to leave home and give himself to causes in urgent need.

T describes how his experiences inspired him to trade in his possessions and hit the road. Several times he was robbed of resources but instead of relying on a flawed legal system to recover his losses, T accepts it as a lesson from his former guru’s.

This early autobiography shares T’s early life in the central United States, his college days at the University of Nebraska, visits to spiritual communities, meetings with various saints, his training of disciple volunteers, T’s building of the Helping Hands Network, his time helping causes in need and his steps to become a new age yogi.

T brings a new age meditation method known as “Creative Meditation” into the light. This is achieved through combining traditional meditational practice with the act of artistic expression and creation. He is known for his wood sculpting and other art which is largely created during a meditative state.

T continues publishing books & comics, teaching yoga & fitness, and speaks widely in the United States. His organization “The Helping Hands Network” is growing daily in the United States and continues to connect causes in need with thousands of resources through http://netvibes.com/HelpingHandsNet

 

 

  “HOW DO I HELP?”

This is a frequent comment on our social sites. It makes my life achievements feel appreciated when I get to have intellectual conversations on this topic. Years back I published a list on our expired MySpace platform and a recent request has motivated me to share this updated blog.

 

FIRST to begin, I ask you to make a list of topics that are close to your heart.

HH Logo 1

MAKE YOUR LIST NOW before reading further to avoid this articles premature influence.

SECOND, I urge you to now do a search on documentary films and books related to your topics. Dive into a few of them and refer back to your original list to make any last minute changes.  You can compare your list to mine: https://freehelpinghands.wordpress.com/2015/02/15/top-documentaries-of-all-time/

A New We

NOW, let us discuss some details surrounding some of these topics.

Protecting nature and all life on Earth is a primary cause for me. Our human species is destroying everything around it.

The PROBLEM: We are selfish and wired for primal survival above all else. This leads the majority of the species to ignore the scientific sins of our ways. We continue to pollute and destroy the very systems that give us life. Nature will survive beyond the Armageddon brought by climate destruction, future meteors or other alien threats.

These systems will survive beyond our self destruction so they do not rely on human defense for survival but our ability to survive comfortably most definitely relies on keeping nature in balance. We must do our part to keep the balance.

A SOLUTION: My primary cause focus is the protection of nature and all life. I advocate for peace, permaculture education and the defense of all life by forming community centers. These centers provide education, community gathering events, artistic creation and expression, food growth and over all community action related to this ideology.

A lot of individual causes fall under this mass topic. Within the chaos generated by individual organizations it is easy to lose track of the over all mission. MY MOST IMPORTANT MESSAGE TO YOU is “FOCUS ON IMPROVING THE PROBLEM. Do not put energy into trickle down effects or you will just be going in circles.”

For example, if you rake your leaves and then leave them in a pile, they will just blow around the yard tomorrow. You must think outside the realm of the status quo. IF your cause is to “prevent leaves from mixing with your garden plants” THEN either remove the tree entirely or create a barrier around your garden.

Replace the leaf example with plastic waste and you have a whole new thought process of defeating nature pollution. Our Helping Hands Network social page groups post a lot of updates on our events which are structured around this philosophy. Turn on your alerts for our posts and attend some of our events when you feel the desire to make a change!

 

LETS LOOK AT SOME MORE SPECIFIC CAUSES

Animal rights are one of the most popular causes but yet they are massively under financed. I am very skeptical in my stance on animal rights. I think they deserve a natural habitat and territory of their own just as much as humans. When a species is left alone in their habitat they do not need our interference. They really only need our protection from other uneducated or impassionate humans.

HEALTH related causes do not need your efforts. Your time will barely be noticed because health causes already have more support than they should. Every day you see wealthy people and organizations providing donations to health related groups instead of nature and universal life change makers. Again, we can not stress enough that this is because of the human nature to survive and scientifically alter the law of natural selection. We want to wage a war against nature so we can survive longer. We want to defeat cancer, we want to stop disease, we want and we want but we refuse to accept that nature knows what is best. We must accept our natural selection of fate. Our disobedience has resulted in more disease and more over population beyond what the natural resources of the world can provide. 

 

HOMELESS HUMANS pull at our heart strings. We want to help but we need to sit back and study their story before reacting at times. As cold hearted as it is, we must accept that humans living in poor conditions is due to a large variety of reasons. Some reasons deserve more help than others. The mentally disabled (addiction or otherwise) and abandoned for example, need to be provided a full time protector. Any help short of that is just “raking the leaves.” Physically disabled and most other human’s living in poor conditions are usually under educated. One of the best ways to help them, is to take them to a community center like the HHN where they can receive survival education. This will enable them to make more positive choices. They can stop engaging in crimes to collect money and redirect their energy towards growing or building the resources they actually need.

 

There are so many causes that this article is actually just an insert from my full length book, “Life Wisdom”. I encourage you to order a copy and read far beyond these thoughts to transcend your enlightenment today. I look forward to your comments and from time to time I will respond by adding a paragraph on this blog.  Thank you again to all of my supporters. Your contributions to our Helping Hands Network will provide much needed help for as long as our members maintain their passion.

Legal Notes

Posted: March 25, 2017 in CAUSES, Secrets, TRUTH / Occupy

Everyone at one time or another has a run in with “the law”.

 

*DISCLAIMER: We are not certified or accredited with any formal legal training and are not liable for anyone’s action which may or may not be cited in connection with this blog.

 

We were recently educated by legal representation during the abusive legal procedures being conducted against clean water/energy activists. As we continue to evolve, links and other notes will be added below.

Most situations begin with a minor invasion of privacy resulting in a request to relocate your presence.

Be prepared and have your legality papers in hand before placing yourself at risk. When entering questionable scenario’s begin documenting, filming, recording and or have witnesses.

IF you are served legal notice of violating a law and given the choice to rectify then do so. Regroup and make sure your case defense is solid with the filed violations.

IF you are requested to be searched and possibly seized or arrested, inform witnesses to film and repeatedly inform the officers that you DENY their request. Repeat that you do NOT give search permission and that they have less than 30 minutes to release you without a warrant.

IF a search assistant (such as a Canine or digital meter device) is used speak loudly to the camera that you do not give permission for them to be used. IF the officers continue, they can say any far fetched sign from the assistants has given them probable cause to continue a detailed search.

 

IF the violations by the peace officers continue and you are cited, fined or arrested, you will now need to know all about jurisdiction and the Abatement of Common Law.

The best guide to proceed in such a legal battle can be found here:

Problem: Grinding in wheel gears.

Cause: Torn boots, dry axle gears, bad bearing.

Solution: Check all lubrication. Jack up wheels and hand turn them and listen or feel for problems. IN MY CASE, the grinding only starts in the rear passenger side after driving at least 40 mph for 20 miles consecutively. I am still testing to identify the exact cause and solution.

 

Problem: Broken Accelerator pedal

Cause: Damaged AC condensation drain tube allowing water to settle at the pedal base plate which then rots the floor out.

Pedal damageAC drain foam

 

 

 

 

Solution:  Replace the damaged foam AC drain tube with a rubber and duct tape tube. Then weld a new pedal connector in place with seam sealant, rust inhibiting paint spray and rubber coating. Also spray the bottom of the car. I riveted my pedal plate in place because I didn’t make the plate large enough to weld to solid floor metal.

Problem: RUST! ARE YOU IN AN ICY CLIMATE? If you are in 80% of the USA your vehicle is at risk. Some of the main places and parts to keep protected include the fender well cover along the floor support & the independent suspension. A hole will rust out in the fender along the frame support and moisture will get into the lower frame and find it’s way down on to the suspension parts.

Mercedes Shock RustRear PAssenger Quarter

Solutions: Re-coat your fender wells with truck liner as needed. IF it is too late you will find that the rear shock mounts sit in a bowl made to support the spring and that will rust out. To get that replaced is a major job as the spring support and the wheel base and axle are ALL attached to this suspension arm and they will need to be removed. The main suspension arm will likely be rusted and you will have to cut off the bolt head and cut out the support tube away from the rubber bushing because it is usually rusted to the bolt.

REMOVE your suspension arm bolts right now and go grease them if it is not too late!!! Make sure you jack the arm up and keep it in place while removing the bolt because if you let it tweek out of place it is a pain in the ass to get the freshly greased bolt to start threading.

 

Problem: Floor Board and trunk rust rot (usually due to failing door/trunk seals)

Solutions: Replace or repair seals. Treat them often with rubber conditioner.

Problem: Window switch is not working. The rear window switch on the rear door works but not the front control switch. (The switches get goo in them over time and the contacts arc and burn out.)

Solutions: Disassemble the switch and clean the contacts and other parts with a razor blade and rotate them before reassembling.

Problem: Transmission or drive shaft allows the vehicle to role about 2 inches when put into park.

Solutions: The main issue is likely that the bushing between the two pieces of the axle is getting worn out. This is very common and is not known to brake completely so there is little risk of being stranded. The drive shaft joint fingers also are very flexible and the give increases with ware.

 

Problem: Transmission shifts hard and horse power seams weak.

Solutions: *LATE ’84 or newer models have a unique shifting vacuum pressure line out of the banjo bolt found on the drivers side of the valve cover. Test by removing the vacuum filter line for the shifting and bypass it by plugging it up. It shifts smoother and increased my horsepower because the extra shifting filter really is not necessary and decreases the pressure too much. This is also a way to test if your turbo is working by unplugging it while vehicle is running to see how much pressure is coming through the banjo.

 

Problem: Concerned how good my engine seals are and if they are causing too much blow by and oil leaking.

Solution: You can put your thumb over the vent hole on the top of the valve cover to get a good idea how healthy your ring seals are. The longer the engine continues to run, the better the seals. 3 seconds means run away from that engine while 6 seconds is average and 9 or more is like new! Mine is 7ish  🙂

 

Problem: Transmission shifts hard, then sometimes it stops and has no power and no acceleration?

Solutions:

1. Check the Tranny Levers/Valves and throttle linkage. http://dieselgiant.com/trannyleverreplace.htm

In my case, the throttle pivot bushing connecting the pedal arm to the accelerator linkage connected to the firewall was broke. (see pictures below)

A: 1984+ has a metal tranny valve  lever on top of the engine

B: <1983 has (2) plastic levers

2. Clean the Banjo-bolt and LINE located on back of engine, near transmission fluid dip stick at rear of exhaust manifold. (*Need cleaning agent and wire brush) Remove line from firewall switch-over valve.

A: 1984+

Switch-over valve line to banjo bolt cleaned? (if you by-pass the switch over, your engine can not prevent over fueling from over boost! This will ruin the engine by ______ ?

3. Clean Fuel and air system (filters, sea foam etc.)

4. check vacuum system (adjust tranny linkage) The 5 way connector by the throttle linkage on pre 1983’s or the 4 ways on 1984+ is usually swollen from oil vapors and heat.

Start at the ALDA with vacuum tester, and if the pressure is not making it that far, then you’ll need to investigate to figure out what is the source of the problem.  Make sure you’ve got the ALDA – there are also vacuum fittings connected to the vacuum shut-off valve on the injection pump,

You can modify the vacuum lines. Remove all lines to the head valve cover. The main vacuum supply goes to a single T as seen in the photo. One end of the T goes to the vacuum control valve (via the green dampener) and the remaining end goes off to the transmission. Note the restriction orifice remains in the line to the vacuum control valve.

One T is completely eliminated……..the line to the black box on top of the valve cover is eliminated. The vent line goes directly to the vacuum control valve. Second T is completely eliminated. The return vent line to the black box on top of the valve cover is eliminated. Remove the line from the black box to the temperature switch on the thermostat housing. Finally, the line from the temperature switch to the EGR valve is eliminated. Opened up the black box and pull out the remains of the 3-2 switches. The IP linkage works a bit smoother when you don’t need to force the cam.

*By removing the EGR vacuum lines connected to the Switchover (3/2) valves and temperature switch, you improve mileage and power but lose first gear and increase carbon blow back. (The 3/2 valves activate the transmission’s 1st gear).

5. check kickdown solenoid performance

Check that the kickdown solenoid isn’t stuck. A simple test you could do is turn the key on and have a helper press the go pedal to kickdown a couple times. You should be able to feel or hear the solenoid click. If it is stuck, pressing the pedal to kickdown quite a few times may free it up.

There is a button under the pedal connected to a cable to the solenoid in the rear of the transmission.

6. check/adjust throttle linkage

Adjustment Of Cable Control For Control Pressure. Vehicles with engine 617.95.

  1. Push off ball socket (19).
  2. Push ball socket (19) first to the rear (opposite to direction of arrow), then pull carefully forward (direction of arrow) until a slight resistance is felt.
  3. In this position, hold ball socket (19) above ball head ; drag lever (13) should rest against stop (14).
  4. Adjust control pressure cable control at adjusting screw (15) in such a manner that the ball socket (19) can be pushed free of tension on ball head.

7. Check/Replace change-over valve.

The vacuum line from the rear of the intake manifold goes to the changeover valve which is operated by DC power.  From the changeover valve the line goes on the the ALDA. A new Changeover valve has returned the engine back to it original power at all speeds according to some. This is located next to the brake booster.

8. Adjust ENGINE valves (*Need 13mm torque wrench for header bolts, new Gasket maybe, MM feeler gauge, 27mm socket, 2 angled 17mm wrenches (tightner wrench needs to be skinny to fit on tightner nut under adjuster nut, baggies for parts, paper and marker to label parts and mark rocker arm as completed)

A. put 27mm socket on crank pulley to turn engine

B. loosen air breather tube from base but leave attached to head plate or you will break it and need to replace. Remove header bolts a turn each at a time to prevent header warping. Gently shimmy header loose to protect gasket and avoid replacing.

C. Crank engine with 27mm on pulley until valve #1 cam rocker arm is straight up. Loosen lock nut on bottom, move adjuster on top to desired spacing. Tighten lock nut.

D. set intake valves at .004 inch (drivers side), exhaust/out take valves to .012 inches (passenger side)

E. repeat for each valve and reconnect header with 2 or 3 torque clicks of pressure (aprox. 15lbs. of pressure?) and breather tube

9. adjust ALDA  (Automatische Lade Druck Anreicherung – Automatic load pressure enrichment) Adjusting may not do anything? 1/2 turn counter clockwise should result in light smoke from exhaust which signifies more fuel being processed by engine and increased power. BE CAREFULL, the screw is easy to break!

In a nut shell the ALDA unit sits on top of the fuel injection pump and contains 2 aneroid capsules and some internal linkage, that enriches the fuel deliver in response to altitude and intake manifold pressure.  When the turbo charger starts making boost the small banjo bolt  and accompanying plastic line, transmits this pressure signal to the switchover valve on the firewall.

IF YOU REMOVE the ALDA …. BE VERY CAREFUL ABOUT FULL THROTTLE TAKE OFFS, don’t do them. It will run very rich under acceleration but OK under cruising, watch your temp. If you leave it off you’ll need a manifold boost gauge and pyrometer to avoid overheating pistons

10. EGR VALVE plugged or plated off with steel

Unplug the vacuum line going to the EGR valve (in front of the air cleaner)  IF there is a power increase service the EGR Valve. IF you leave it blocked, it is recommended to use Bio Diesel as much as possible to minimize exhaust carbon from breaking down the vacuum rubber components and causing build up on other parts.

11. Check the timing

Check the timing marks on the cam gear and tower with the crank pulley at TDC. IF off/retarded by more than 5 degrees replace the timing chain which brings the timing to 2.5 degrees retarded. Offset woodruff keys are available to further correct timing.

12. Replacing the injectors will improve starting, performance, and limit exhaust smoke. http://dieselgiant.com/mercedesinjectornozzlereplace.htm

13. Check Fuel Rack Damper Bolt

Replacing or adjusting fuel rack damper bolt improves idle and smoothes the engine shake.

Loosen the lock nut and screw the bolt in until the engine smooths out and then back it out and go in again, just to make sure it’s in the right place. Tighten lock nut.

You really only want it screwed in as far as you need to stop the wild side to side rocking. Once that stops, screwing it in further is not going to make it smoother. These engines shake and that’s all there is too it. If it’s screwed in too far it will mostly likely stall and be difficult to start.

Greetings,

This winter I began researching and comparing dental prices in the East Texas area. I had hoped to find out more about insurance options and figured that the clinics would be forced to push ObamaCare propaganda upon me, however, that has not been the case.

Here is what I have found so far.

BETHESDA CLINIC  903.596.8353 x103

info & DWemp @bethesdaClinic.org

Exam – $40 4 weeks delayed appointments

Canal – TBD after exam. Mine was $420 + $75 filling

emailed 1/25 (informed that all communication is only done in person)

1/26 – Visited and passed initial screening. Scheduled for March 3 xray exam for $40.

3/3 – Exam was well done with full explanations and exact pricing. Two month delay for next appointment but the savings are worth it. Cleanings are $40. Fillings are $25-60 depending on how many layers. They give referrals for reduced rate oral surgeries like removing wisdom teeth.

I was referred to oral surgeon, Dr. Parks. Their exam is $65 plus another $120 for Xrays even though you are already consulted and referred to them by an approved partner. The extraction will then cost up to $375.

 

Summer 2016 – I got 6 teeth filled.

August – my top wisdom tooth pressed my rear molar out and the pain was too intense to wait to remove the wisdom tooth so I had the molar pulled out.

 

September – scheduling to have my lower wisdom tooth extracted ASAP to prevent repeat pain.
