    For a 2008 Ford Mustang 4.0 V6 (also in Explorers and Rangers):
    To replace the timing chain you must pull the engine, intake, heads, and pretty much everything else to replace the @$%& timing chains (4 of them). :eek:
    At this point I may as well do a complete rebuild.

    Na I'm a 'mid' fart.

    I collect old coins and currency. Is that considered a skill or a hobby?
    I play with Legos. A skill or play time? I have a dedicated room with probably half a million pieces. Sadly no time lately to play. :(

    Ouch!

    Even worse than replacing the spark plugs on my Pontiac. As they sit in the side of the cylinders, it has to be down from below, and you'll need a special tool and an extra joint on your arm to reach them...

    And, while we are discussing cramped engine compartments, I can't change one of the headlights on my Honda CRV. My hands are too big (and I don't have large hands, they are average male size), and I can't reach it. I need to get help from my girlfriend or the kids. Changing a headlight bulb should be easy, even without tools and in darkness!

    A friend of mine was so happy when they got their first child. Suddenly, he could play with Lego as much as he wanted, and, as an adult, he had the money to buy all the Lego he liked.

    Also, when the new Star Wars movies came out, he was happy, because he could buy what toys he liked. When he was a kid and the original movies came, his parents never understood that you can't just have ONE stormtrooper figure...

    Oh yeah, that's my story too :)

    Suddenly I could watch Disney's The Aristocrats (and then many other movies and cartoons), play lego, jump in puddles, throw snowballs, make sandcastles, marble tracks..
    All the amusement a child's mind (mine) could conceive..

    Probably I am several 5-yo children in a single adult body..and I like it !

    This evening I tried the following routine:
    Code:
    Sub Dinner_today
    Dim Thuna As Tuna_sushi_quality
    Dim Potatoes, Pastinake As Vegetable
    Kitchen.Initalize(
    "myKitchen")
    For i = 1 To Pastinake.count
      Prepare(pastinake)
      Prepare(potatoe)
    Next
    cook_together(vegetables)
    Finish_with(Cream, megnut,salt, lemon)
    Roast(tuna,
    3 minutes, salt, pepper,lemonjuice)
    CallSub("Bonapetite")
    CallSub("Kitchen_Cleaner")

    End Sub
    There are still some errors in the code, the result is not for google play but anyway, it worked...

    "KItchen_Cleaner" is not yet available in b4a 4.3 but I've heard about an extra lib you can buy.

    Hi eurojam,
    I tried your code but got the following

    Error: Salt not found. Did you forget to buy it from the shop!

    Probably just the wrong version of the salt grinder library. Also, have you tried re-installing Windows?

    Ford really took that engine a bit too far. It started out as 2.0 litre pushrod with gear driven cam in the 1960's and ended up being 4.0 littre SOHC with chain driven cam in the 1990's.

    I'd expect you'd need a lot of patience for that

    As you can see, sailing. www.zlatnajedra.com
    And hardware development, based on Arduino, Netduino,...., PIC,...
    But sailing is the best counterweight (??) to programming.
