Cylinder Index (he he)

Recommended Posts

Cheap_Dave
Here we go.... While traveling in Minnesota last year a radio host was discussing his "Cylinder index" and went as far as to say that his Cylinder Index number should equal his age? Cylinder Index is the number of Cylinders (pistons) you have (i think they must be running or planned to be running) example family car (V-6) = 6 cylinders Pickup truck (V-8) = 8 cylinders Outboard moter = 2 cylinders weed wacker = 1 cylinder Backup weed wacker= 1 cylinder Simplicity = 1 cylinder Back up simplicity= 1 cylinder cylinder index total = 20 Age 42 need 22 more cylinders (he he) or -22 so when my wife asks me why do i need another... whatever... I simply mention that I'm working on my Cylinder Index (he he) and after a puzzled look on her face i then say it's something you learn at guy school..... now don't get me wrong if your 25 and have a cylinder Index of 30 doesn't mean thet you have to get rid of things (heaven forbid) keeping in mind that your age will increase to that number (and hopefully your Cylinder index will increase as well). Basically your banking the cylinders for later. so you just can't loose. Personally when i'm not actively increasing my Cylinder Index i can be found on warm sunny and breezy afternoons in my hammock, actively calculating my Cylinder index (sleeping). I have the unique ability to do this "Calculating" while not only in my Hammock but also while watching football and Nascar on TV, I think its a gift from god to have this ability. You may find that you have this amazing ability also, possibly while golfing, fishing, hunting, eating, when your in the bathroom, or when your in the process of some other enjoyable activity you can say without lying that your calculating your Cylinder index... My wife thinks I'm an idiot (Idiot like a fox). Now since I have brought this Cylinder Index to light (or maybe its been here all along and no one wanted to mention it, Guy school and all... sorry guys) an active discussion regarding this could be fun... Now for the question: Any feed back on this would be fun and also whats your cylinder index? I'm actively at +2 with an index of 44 Oh uh I may have made a mis calculation, time to get a tall cool drink (adult beverage) wander over to the hammock and re- Calculate my cylinder Index yet again ................zzzzzzzzz Cheap Dave P.S this may generat a whole new area in your profiles and a whole new section in the forum..... Cylinder index.

I’ve been thinking about this “cylinder index” for the last couple of days and thought that I was low, counting my company truck (V10), pick up (V-8), wives car (V-6), sons car V-6) I come up with 30 [-22]. Add my 712H, 7117H,ATV, 2 Mowers, Weed Eater, 2 snowmobiles, air compressor, old walk behind snow blower, model airplane engine and model steam engine brings me up to 49 [-3 (doing better)]. Now wait, there are 4 20# propane cylinders [+1], Oxygen & Acetylene [+3], Bernz-O-Matic [+7], Each Vehicle has 4 wheel cylinders and a master cylinder for a total of 20 [+27], ATV 3 brake & 1 master 4 [+31]. Back to the tractors, they both have Sundstrand transmissions, 9cylinders on each drive pump and drive motor for 36 total [+67] 7117 has hydraulic lift and power steering for 2 more [+69], I guess I’m not doing too bad! Next I’ll have to go to SETUP and find out how many cylinders the Hard Drive on this computer has. Don
