Default Garage/work space needed

My FJ60 starter cooked yesterday and I need to rebuild it. Unfortunately with our recent move, I have no garage space to work on it and we have been getting pounded with snow up in Evergreen and this isn't a job I think I can tackle in my icy snow covered driveway. (I'm a wimp).

EDIT: Nevermind - Read your second post and figured out what you meant by "Got a space"

I have a small apartment garage, but you are welcome to use it. I'll be messing around all day on Saturday. I am in Parker.

Hey Martin, where the heck in Evergreen are you? We didn't get pounded here in Kittredge, but did get a couple inches of dandruff by this morning.

In any case, club members are always welcome to come use my garage and tools, and in your instance, I have about 3 non-working starters you're welcome to scavenge for parts. I even labeled each one as to what it's particular symptom is, so as to know which parts from it might still be good.

Thanks Jeff! Saturday I'm taking it down to Golden, where I work. There's some heated warehouse space I can use for the day. I might take you up on the offer for some starter parts. Once I get it apart, I'll survey the damage and give you a call if I need anything. I have a rebuild kit, but after talking to Bruce at the meeting about my symptoms, he thought it might be worse than just contacts.

Kim and I just bought a house a few miles down Brook Forest Road (Lodgepole Drive) just West of the lower trailhead to Maxwell Falls, or a mile East of the Brook Forest Inn. We got about a foot of snow up there last Sunday and a few more inches yesterday. Loving it up there already.

I have 3, yes, 3, working starters lying around. Take all 3 and return the ones you don't end up using.

When I first moved here in 1980 (yes I'm an old phart) I lived up on Forest Estates Rd. Believe it or not, the BFI used to be a tavern/roadhouse where us locals used to stop in for a beer or three. Upstairs, people used to room and board, downstairs was the tavern. Years ago, (fellow Rising Sun member) Scott Yoder and I used to perform there when we were in one of our previous bands.

You're actually closer to Tim Nakari than I am, he's up off of Little Cub Creek Road now. But that's pretty cool - now we need to get Gary Coberly and we'll form the "West Side Breakfast Club" :-)
