JB:

I have a college education in Architectural Design. I am licensed Inter-Provincially as a Cabinet and Furniture Maker. I am an Advanced Amateur Radio Operator. I am a Journeyman Communicator (Military) and have training and experience as an enlisted Military ATC and Flight Service op. I do not consider myself uneducated or illiterate.

However, much like the 1889 exam which left me feeling totally :oops: STOOPID :oops: the knowledge level and the complexity of this discussion has not only confirmed my :oops: STOOPID :oops: status, but has reaffirmed my belief that I need a lot more education to get to where some of my betters are at.

And we used to say that our education system is superior to our parents and grandparents education. Not :!: :roll: :)

Horse power

Thu Apr 22, 2004 7:49 am

Many years ago, before nodding off to sleep, I remember someone saying that HP was determined by the time it took to move 33,000 lbs one foot.

Trying to pin this topic down is like trying to get a straight answer from a politician.

If the equipment I have does what I need it to do I figure I have enough horses.

Also, my Cub manual says high idle on my '69 is 2100 rpm. Does that mean I have more horses than those of you with the old red Cubs?

I have enjoyed the discussion.

If both are running at full throttle and the governors are set to original specs, yes.

Specialization is when you know more and more about less and less. You become an expert when you know everyhting there is to know about absolutely nothing.

An old engineer I worked with years ago once told me: "The more you know about something the harder it gets; because, you learn more and more about what you can't do"

I THINK I AM BECOMING A REAL EXPERT - I CAN'T THINK OF ANYTHING I CAN DO ANYMORE.
