    Thanks guys. 
    SO I finished up the harmonic balancer and the bolt for it. 2 separate pieces make up this part. Now i can finish the pulley and start from there.
    Chris, the promod is here here now.... in pieces but it's here lol

    oh im not stating what they did wasn't crooked as all hell but as far as lawsuits go I don't think anyone has a leg to stand on. I personally didn't pay for their services as I wasn't in agreement as to how they went about things anyway. Did it affect me? Sure but only minutely and quite frankly there are better things to do than bicker about something as petty as how someone pulled the rug out from under them over a free service. (Not that anyone is mind you)  
    This will be my last posting as far as Pbucket goes however. I choose to move on from what has only become a sore subject for many.
    Go build something people. I am!

    your probably right. And there is still access to them. They didnt blatantly steal them and cut off access to them. And you do have a choice to download them and go somewhere else without paying to get them back. 
    I want to say that you solely own the photos however they can use them as they see fit to suit their needs.
    It may come down to having to watermark your photos as yours though. Im not sure and copyright laws are a sticky subject with many layers to the laws than many of us mear laymen couldn't possibly grasp without a degree.

    Cant see why there would be a lawsuit. Free is free and theres is probably something in the original TOS stating they can change it at any time. 
    I cant see any reason for an emotional distress suit either. A, it would be difficult to prove Im sure and B, they didnt cut you off of access to YOUR pics. They just changed how theybwent about things. You can still access them, just can't 3rd party them as you used to. Now granted that wouldn't stop some lawyer from trying just because they make all the money while you are out money or get nothing in return for your FREE account.
    Best bet, find a new place or way and move on but thats MY opinion.

    Kind of wonder if it is not Wendel Sowers just playing the part of someone else. His stuff seems to pop up from time to time from various sellers claiming they have the molds iirc. Then poof...gone again. Seems odd is all.

    Chris, not yet. As soon as the dust settles though I will be putting in an order for some brass!

    So I devised a scheme  to be able to add the reliefs to the top of the block side but mounting it in the 3 jaw chuck and milling them into the side with an end mill. Actually worked pretty darned good too! One side shows what I started with as far as the block goes. You can see my layout lines for the freeze plug locations. I may plunge the freeze plug "cups" in with an appropriate sized end mill just to simulate the freeze plugs. Last picture is the finished drivers side block. I do still need to add a boss to it for what ever is on that side mounted to the block...filters maybe? Not too familiar with these engines so I am working on assumptions and what little pics I can find on the web.

    you can still store your photos on photobucket....till they go under from the mistake they've made lol. Just cannot 3rd party them to forums ect. Or do what many have done and switch to Fotki, google or what ever picture hosting place of your choosing. But it is probably best to upload any photos used here on here so threads are not destroyed next time someone gets a bug up the ass. (Or greedy) I am already paid for a year of service with Fotki so I'm good for a while and was already in process, albiet slowly of changing over anyway.

    LN8000 transporter block updates 7/18
    So since I am moving and now am in Phoenix I have nothing to build. I tossed in a couple of models on the way out the door. One being the LN8000 and the other a Meng D9R. Decided to start on the LN so I spent half the day looking up reference for it. Not much to be had but I did figure out the engine at least. (Ford V225 otherwise know as a Cat 1160)
    Cleaned up the block half faces and got them glued together. Got a look at the belts and said OH HELL NO! lol. Luckily I did bring the Unimat lathe/mill and it's tooling with me lol. Decided to turn the pulleys from aluminum. Got most of the first steps done but still need the center hole for the crank bolt. Probably no one will see it but I know it's there so I suppose that's all that matters.

    Here's one session of photobucket this morning. I understand needing money and all but someone screwed the pooch and over did the ads. There is no reason for THAT many ads and that's just to get into my library. If they had gone about it a better way I would have gladly paid for their service but like I said before, they've gone down hill and have been for a long time. I only started using ad blocker a couple weeks ago and that is just to get into my Photobucket as all the ads render it useless otherwise and I just want to get into it. I've downloaded one album that I was having problems with in Win 7 onto the laptop which has  Win 10 on it.  All of them opened up just fine with no squish so I will download the rest of them onto the laptop and them upload them to Fotki. Just payed for my 100 gig plan the other night so I'll be good for a year at 24.00.
