Do Paslode Impulse fastening tools count? I've got three of them. Each has a spark plug and a cylinder that drives the nail/staple. They (ITW) call it an internal combustion engine nailer. Anyway, I forgot a push mower and two chainsaws first time around, so counting the paslodes, I've got 43 total. Hey, that's my age too! I turn 44 on the 16th so I, or somebody, better get shopping!

I'm up to 100. But only about half run. But they are spread out into diff. catogories. Big trucks. Tractors, lawn and garden. This could get out of had, who's idea was this?

I'm counting 147, all running. Farm tractors, combines, trucks, pickups, mini-vans, cars, garden tractors, lawn mowers, string trimmers, hedge trimmer and chain saws. Pat

23 (one in parts) 1 on the way so total of 24. 1 Cyl/year seems very reasonable. I am approx. 1/2 below my allowable CI index. I will bring this to my wife's attention and advise you on how it goes.

I will have to tell my wife how lucky she is... I only have 40. 30 are woking 9 are not including a 1948 studebaker p/u truck (flat head 6). I just got my other gravely 7.6 running today, but I just picked up a cub cadet model 76 and it is not running. It looks like I have alot of catching up to do. PS I turn 43 on 3/4/02 so I'm at least 3 cylinders short. Some folks may say that I'm not running on all cylinders anyway!! John H

Lets see. 10 (V6 Camry + 4 cyl truck) + 2 (40 hp Force) + 4 (V2 Sovereign + 2 Simplicity 700/725's) + 1 (loose Briggs for a generator) + 1 (chainsaw) + 2 (1966 Toro mower + 1 spare engine) = 20 total. At age 59 it looks like I'm underprivileged and need some more. I didn't count young son's truck which was recently signed over to him. Oops, nearly forgot. Add 2 (Mercury 10 hp, not running) to make it 22 Total. Roy

Mine is 45 and all running. 27 of the 45 are all small engines. Everyone don't forget your chainsaws, weed trimmer, leaf blower, etc. A great C.I. is a number the same or greater than your age. Happy counting. Mike S.

This seems incredible, and must certainly go into the "You Know You're White Trash If..." column, but I have 93 (ninety-three) cylinders, 79 of which are running. If this seems incredible, I'll list them, b/c I certainly don't want to be thought of as a liar. Now that's counting the girlfriend's car (4 cyl.) and a car someone abandoned at the cottage, but there it is. I take care of the family's cottage, so I have a lot of them up there. I might add that 5 engines are 6 cyl., and only 2 are V-8's, one of which is a boat anchor. I've always seemed to attract the 6 cylinders, no matter what I do. Oh, yes, I'm sure I'm forgetting a couple of walk behind lawn mowers, so I will be revising this. Peter

I didn't realize that your CI was supposed to be higher than your age.... wonder if I could use that for additional justification with the missus? I'm obviously running behind....

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
