Do you know anything about weight lifting competition? Well, I know very little. What I DO know is that there's no money to be made unless you're in the heavyweight divisions. Yet you talk as if I should have spent my life doing this.

No, no. You misread me. I'm just saying that you lie about your strength and that's very childish for an old man.

Should have perhaps gone out for the Olympics? Maybe found a sponsor? Went to a fancy university with a program? So, I know very little - You know nothing.

I was into lifting weights very briefly back in 1972 when I worked as an installation man for Atlantic Boiler. Complete waste of time...

Don't say that, Atlantic Boiler paid you, didn't the?

But just working for that company was "working out" eight, ten hours a day. The strongest man I ever met in my life, and a legend in the trade was a pencil thin guy whom we just called "Jonesey."

But what would you know about physical labor? As you've demonstrated with these posts - Nothing at all...

You sound like the guy who spends the day telling BS stories to the newbies, so we can safely assume that I know more about hard work, physical and intellectual, than you.

I will educate you about weight lifting...

Weight lifters come in all kinds of body types...

130 pound divisions

And record vary accordingly. Grabbing a 220 lb from the ground and putting it overhead is what superheavyweights do at the atlas stones event WSM competition in

Different body types of weight lifers...

Body types

Me at the age of 26

And of course, an article about me taking on Two members of the TPF, and a hired goon from Kurmco...

I have no reason to BS about myself.

You don't but still do about yourself and most things.

And I realized as soon as you didn't PM me that you actually thought I was BSing. Of course, like anyone I may mispeak.

No, mispeaking is claiming that you bench press 300 lb, and when called on it, clarifying that it was 40 years ago and that you don't remember the weight exactly but seemed an awful lot. What you've done is repeat the same BS for more than one year.

Mispeaking is claiming that the Romans changed the climate in the Iberian peninsula and were the cause of climate extremes and,  when asked about sources or what climate extremes you're talking about, admitting that you aren't really sure about that. What you do is the repeat the same BS, etc.

On the other hand I NEVER BS.

I think you're lying now, I don't want to accept that you believe it. It'd be too sad.

Dave, you're starting to worry me. What is this supposed to mean?

Maybe you should read the story? Last four paragraphs? I've also edited my last post so that I've posted a picture of myself in my salad days.

Just for your information, the Tactical Patrol Force was an elite unit of Cops, none shorter than six feet.

Yeah you kicked a guy in the nuts 43 years ago, so?

No, it was precisely 300 pounds. Said so... I NEVER said I don't remember the weight. I could probably do over 250, maybe 275 today. I didn't have much trouble with the 223 motor.

And BTW. You are correct. NORMALLY I would call for help. But I take my job seriously, and late at night it was either me doing the job, or 180 elderly people having no heat. I had the super, hold the ladder, with the instructions, that if he saw the motor start to fall, immediately get out of the way.

I took down a hired thug, and two TPF Cops in the middle of forty other TPF Cops. And even now, I could take you AND johnson, your hero down just by myself. Admitedly I couldn't catch you if you ran.

Are you now going to show me cute little pictures of block and tackles to explain to me why I should have used one?

Most installers don't give a sht what happens to their job five years after the check clears. In this case, the Pump was mounted near the ceiling BEHIND the boiler. Lots of jobs like that. Sometimes, it's SO impossible that the only way to make the repair is to repipe the job. Once, an owner had to hire structural engineers, to take down a bearing wall, just to change a large air fan.

But I'm sure you know all of this better than me.

And that's what really enrages you doesn't it? I always ultimately make a fool of you. Must hurt...

Poor baby.

But take heart, johnson is rooting for you. Can't get a lower fan club then than.

U r such a liar, muthafuvcka. U know u can get away w/ it cause u know nobody's gonna waste their time hookin' up w/ u to verify this bullshiit. U r just a lonely old man, desperate for human interaction, even if it's negative interaction.

U can think that old man. It's funny and pathetic at the same time, pretending to be a macho man even with those pathetic hobo pics ur so proud of. How fvckin' delusional r u? U need help, Squidly.

Tell you what, big boy...go to any gym in your ghetto and have someone use that POS Sigma of yours to film you pressing 250 lbs. Use good form. No cheating old man.

LMFAO!

Above. Probably has not lifted in 3-4 years when this was taken, as I tend to go on & off. I could do free weight bench of 185 for about 8-10 reps at 40.  Not anymore, but we will see.......

I took down a hired thug,

The hired thug is the hospital representative who was struck from behind?

and two TPF Cops in the middle of forty other TPF Cops.

Newsflash: it's not 1970 anymore, gramps.

And even now, I could take you AND johnson, your hero down just by myself.

I see you want to learn about Boiler Repair
In reply to bigrgib, Aug 15, 2013

Well, you've come to the right source.

Boiler repair rarely involves lifting over a hundred pounds. The heaviest "routine" repairs are of compressors, and motors. The IC Compressors usually weigh in at that range, and even the heaviest of them, are floor mounted and don't present a problem.

Normally of course, when a mechanic HAS to lift much more than that, they call for help. Not necessarily because they can't do it, but because it involves risks.

But oddly enough, we in the profession take a great deal of pride in what we do. No one of course actually recognizes this determination not to let people freeze - But that's the way we look at it. And that's all that counts!

So, I will present some of our difficulties...

This is an MM series IC burner. Piece of cake for one man to change the motor. Not a problem. We take off the housing, loosen some bolts, and the 85 pound motor and fan come out as one piece

The next step up is the DE series, and that presents problems. In order to change the motor, you have to take out the entire housing, WITH the motor, which in the smaller burners such as the one below, weigh around 400 pounds...

I've changed such motors by myself, strictly because other wise it wouldn't have gotten done. I don't have to bench press the housing, but rather lift it down, and after changing the motor, lift it up. In both cases about six inches.

Then of course we have the larger size DE and DEG burners. Well, the housing might weigh as much as a thousand pounds, and it's clumsy weight. Of course we don't use that cute little machine you posted an image of. In fact, I've never seen such a machine used in Boiler repair. Way to clumsy to carry into boiler rooms.

No, we set up a large tri-pod with a block and tackle on it. Pull all the bolts off the burner housing, and then lift the entire housing off. Usually, we change the motor "on the fly" literally and figuratively..

Here's a picture of one of these burners...

Now the motor by itself on one of these burners, probably comes in around two hundred pounds, but that's not the problem. If that was the only problem two guys, or even one in an emergency could do it. The problem is that you have to pull the entire housing off the burner. Thus the tripod and block and tackle. You see there is a fan attached to the motor, and it simply wont fit through the hole in the housing. It has to be removed from INSIDE the burner. See what I'm talking about?

Hopefully, you've now learned a wee bit about the trade. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

And I should add that thankfully, I'm almost as agile and almost as strong as when I was a young man. Can't run to fast, but hey, one has to expect some changes in life.

Oh, one last thing. The "Hospital Representative" was from a real estate management firm, that owners hired when they wanted to get rid of legal tenants. He worked for a company called "Kurmco." I knew he was an f-ing pig, and being young and naive wanted to make sure HE Didn't walk away.

Well, at the trial, one Cop couldn't identify me. One died the day before the trial, and that left the case as my work against his. He had a record of over thirty arrests, including attempted murder, raceterring, and by golly, perjury. Whereas I had a Rabbi, a Priest and a Minister all testifying to my sterling character.
