    I need some well work

    I had a similar issue years ago. Turned out a fitting between the check valve in the basement and the pump was leaking allowing air to gradually get drawn into the line after the pump shut off. Fortunately the leaking fitting was in the basement. Just had to tighten and re-seal the joint to fix it. Hopefully it's something as simple as that for you.

    Threatening Tuesday

    18" so far. Going to lay low and deal with it later tomorrow after it winds down.

    110v plug in LED over head lights

    I too switched to the Sam's Club LED units in my basement and garage a couple of years ago. All plug in units. About $35 each. Installed 17 of them. To date they have all performed flawlessly. Instant on vs the old slow tube fixtures I used to have.

    Assist or full hydro?

    I run the PSC hydro assist setup in my YJ with a Ford D60 on 43's. Ram assist with high steer. Didn't port the original box. Just sprung for the ported PSC box. System works flawlessly.

    Rats - got some, want less

    Pouring ammonia and then chlorox into a burrow works wonders to get rid of critters. Snaking a hose into the hole helps get the toxic mixture deeper into burrows.

    Remote start

    Just bought a Fortin from Amazon for my daughters 2015 Escape. Came pre-programmed so no need to buy a programmer. $100 to my door. Suppose to be all plug and play except for two connections to the ODB port harness for the remote start function. I suspect if I hook up the parking lights it'll require a tap or splice. " Santa" now has to put it in.

    Equifax Data Breach

    I froze Equifax a couple of days ago and Transunion and Experian this morning without any issue. Equifax was free and $5 each for the other two here in MA.

    Jeep TJ Clutch Replacement

    Might want to pick up the little metal wire clip that holds the clutch arm on the ball stud in the bell housing. I've found them borken when doing a few Jeep clutch's and required a mad dash to the dealer to pick one up so the job can be completed.

    stalling snowblower

    Most carbs like that have the main jet in the center of the bowl. Pull the carb, remove the jet and be sure the jet is clean. Check it's passages and gently clear with a fine wire if necessary. Shoot some carb cleaner thru where the jet was. Flush the same passage from the carb throat back to the main jet to get any doo-dee out of there. Blast the other carb passages back and forth with cleaner too. Re-assemble. This usually does the trick for me on my small engines.

    Balljoint tool kit recommendation

    I'd just get a loaner from your local Autozone or Advance Autoparts when you need to do ball joints unless you are doing it a lot.
