My family has a Ford 8N from my Grandfather.
Except my Dad wants to sell it. It’s a little heartbreaking because it’s like selling a piece of history and a family heirloom.
Wish I had my own farm that I could put it on.

We also have the Ferguson equivalent from my other grandfather but it’s just won’t be the same without that 8N.

>why the hell is it so huge when there is only a single pilot and no passengers?
Because to reduce the overall project cost they built the design around an F-16 central frame. That takes up the middle third of the frame and the wing layout borrows a bit from the F-16XL project. The long nose is unavoidable. The engine location is slightly due to the limitations of the frame choice.
JFK is next to the Atlantic, and the people int he UK don't matter, so I don't see how this is an issue.
Not so bad (as if an uncalibrated soundtrack played on a shitbox iPhone means anything).

If there's an energy gradient over a bearing in your system you'd better replace it.

Two words, flame thrower.
Your question interested me so I did some light research on the topic. At the end, it all kind of boils down to every other country in Europe were copying the vikings ship building techniques after a few dozen raids too many. Which all in all made raids more difficult to achieve/worth it. It came to an end during sometime around the 13th century where ships wen't from light and maneuverable long ships, to stronger and heavier "cogs". "Cogs" being the new type of ship the Scandinavians were using afterwards. Do note that some isolated regions like the Hebrides and the northern coast of Ireland still used long ships well into the 17th century. If you needed anymore proof of how stubborn Celts can be lol. There's a little bit more in the article I read down below if you want to give it a try.

Quintessential Amerimutt-core.
Actually, am bong.

I find it funny how much Euros make fun of America for having bad infrastructure because we don't have a good government-funded passenger rail network, despite the fact that the federally-maintained interstate highway system, publically-owned airports, and private freight rail do literally everything Euros think you "need" nationalized rail to do.
I can take an hour and a half flight from Boston to Pittsburgh whereas a train from Munich to Paris takes 5.5-8 hours to cover the same distance. Air travel is a better solution for mid and long distance trips unless you're too dirt-poor to afford an airline ticket, which I assume all the people whining about how we need to cripple freight rail in favor of scamtrak are.
Fun fact: the US government spends drastically less on EAS subsidies for flights to sparsely populated unprofitable regions than it does to keep Amtrak afloat offering services to major metro centers

It's just an issue with corporations being beholden to shareholders instead of owners. All the "le evil" corporations redditors despise were much better when the original founder was still alive and in control. Back when it was Sam Walton in charge Walmart won awards for treating employees so well. When Walt was alive Disney focused on making charming high-quality media, not cash grabs and remakes for their bottom line. When the founder who actually cares about long-term success dies and stockholders take over though, they only care about jacking up valuation so they can sell higher than they bought and move on to something else.
If corporations were required to to be owned by an individual instead of a board of bloodsuckers, they'd have to start thinking about how to succeed and keep a market in the long term.
I think the Americans who say "BUT HIGHWAYS ARE JUST AS GOOD" have just never experienced European rail. I wouldn't trade rail for highways any day of the week.
We have plenty of gay hatches. It’s the wagons we want. All our “wagons” are just long SUV’s with plastic fender covers to look “rugged and outdoorsy!”
This is just not true. Grew up in northeast suburbia and almost all neighborhoods have sidewalks unless they’re really old or really wealthy. Sidewalks are the furthest thing from a premium amenity unless maybe you live in the middle of nowhere.
>Americans think Europe doesn't have highways

no, they're there so american railroads can put off electrification

I'm a fat fuck and the axle on my rear bicycle wheel keeps breaking. It's expensive to keep replacing the entire wheel, so I want to know if these things are replaceable? I removed the axle and all these little metal balls came rolling out. I can't figure how to get them back in, or how I would get pic related fitted if I purchased it. Any thoughts? Is this something that is actually user serviceable on wallmart-tier bikes?

im assuming your bike uses a freehweel
id try changing to a cassette wheel purely because they are much less prone to bending / snapping axles due to the bearings on the drive side being mounted further out
with a spacer
you could also just one made for 7 speed
you can change to a freehub and cassette while keeping the same chain derailleur and everything as long as the cassette is the same size as the freewheel

How did Airbus crush Boeing?

>This is actually not good for Airbus because if Boeing fails regulators will break them up.
The Boeing type certificates will always have value as long as examples fly. Airbus will just be prohibited from purchasing them in liquidation.
>MD merges with Boeing
>Boeing marketshare remains basically the same
I know the reason they bought MD was for its military rather than civilian side, but still: lol lmao.
Boeing planes are just plain better but airbus is better at actually making their planes without fucking up. 787 mogs the A350 on all but the longest range routes (its fuselage is made in much larger segments making it lighter despite both using composites) and the 737max is lighter, marginally more fuel efficient, and carries a similar amount of passengers. But both boeing production lines were fucked for ages.
>Boeing planes are just plain better
The A320 offers better cabin pressure, more elbow room, and better failsafing compared to a 737. It's a much more comfortable ride. Plus Airbus didn't have its entire new run of jets grounded for a year because they were unbalanced trash that kamikazed every time a sensor got jammed.
>boeing went to shit because they fired Hambini
It just makes sense
