Man can the vikings play any worse than they did today? They did everything they could to let the Lions take them at home.

Well I'm sure Chilly is going to bring in 3 or 4 running backs this week to show Adrian Fumbleson who's boss.

Just think, you guys (vikings fans) are a handful of blown and bad calls away from having a new coach. By all rights the last two weeks should have been losses and Ziggy's blood pressure was on the rise prior to the Saints game. Be careful what you wish for....the let down could come later in the year when you need it least, thanks to a coach who got a second chance and had little to do with the past two wins.

If they make the playoffs, and they have a great chance, they oughta be ashamed of themselves being there. Especially after these past 2 games. Ugliest wins I have ever seen.

Terrible division all around.

Exactly why they should make it. Horrible teams in what once was the best division in the NFC. I know the Super Bowl totals from the 80s and 90s say otherwise (Giants, Cowboys, 49'ers) but the NFC Central (used to be anyway) always seemed to beat each other up, then not have any steam left on the playoffs, now they are just bad.

Found it very interesting how they spread the field with 4 wide receivers and Berrian gets an 86 yard tochdown. So right after that, what does our brain child of a coach do??? Goes right back into a tight power formation and try to run the ball up the middle. Sure it is easy to defense Peterson when they run him right up the middle with all 11 guys inside the tackles. I am convinced........Childress is the antichrist. FIRE HIM NOW!!!!! What needs to happen before he gets canned? The refs are winning the game for us, not Childress.

The fans didnt have anything to do with any of their performances.

I do agree they arent very good.

More agressive play calling to free up Peterson would help. Spread things out a bit.

That was an inside joke for those who listen to KFAN between noon-2pm.

Terrible team with terrible uniforms with terrible fans that play in a terrible stadium.....etc, etc...

Second and third round draft choices to the team stupid enough to take Chilly off of our hands. Packers probably do know how lucky they were!

Holy cow the vikes are terrible. If the refs keep blowing calls they may actually have a shot! These guys are so lucky. Should be 1-5. With they way the vikes are playing they may acually be able to end the season 8-8!

Go Packers!

The Vikes uniforms are terrible? I think Chris Hovan said it best:

"The Packers uniforms look like someone puked all over them"

Once again, it is a line used on KFAN. Not to mention he says it about a lot of teams.

Now we're debating uniforms? Don't take it so serious, geesh!

Chris Who? As in, who cares what he thinks!

What Hovan said is dead on, green and gold-not so great together. Could be worse, those Jets uniforms deserve to be in a dumpster behind the Meadowlands. cool

I guess they were going to be a one game only thing, but if I remember right, it was the game Favre threw 6 TDs, so I think being superstitious they thought they could win everytime they put them on. Ugliest things ever. The other old Jets unis were ok, with the outline of a Jet on the helmet, but the other ones- gotta go

Man that was a stinkfest of a game. How do you win by 2? On that team? Horrible vikings team and lucky at the same time. Chilly is horrible and has no idea how to use the most explosive back in the league. Hopefully we get a new coach that can use him so we don't pull a Barry Sanders. It was a joke and pretty unwatchable. Thanks for DVR's so I didn't have to watch the whole dang train wreck!!!

    • BEFORE BEGINNING

      Before you begin, make sure you have a good strong battery and make sure it's charged up. If you have a bad or weak battery, you may want to replace it because if it doesn't crank good and strong, you are likely to get a low, inaccurate reading. Make sure your engine is warmed up to operating temperature(if possible). About 10 minutes of riding should do.

      First, take out the spark plug and thread in the adapter for the compression tester. Make sure you have the correct size adapter for your particular ATV. Slide your kill switch to the "off" position. Some ATVs won't crank over with the kill switch in the "off" position, so if yours is like this, then you will need to either unhook your ignition coil or ground the end of the spark plug wire to a good ground. You can use a jumper wire with alligator clips on each end to ground it. Next, make sure the throttle is in the wide open position. You can either hold the throttle lever with your thumb or you may be able to tape it or use a zip tie to fasten it to your handlebars to hold it in the wide open position. If you don't have the throttle in the wide open position, you will probably get too low of a reading. Also, if you are testing a newly rebuilt engine, the engine needs to have been run for, at least, 30 or 40 minutes or you will probably get too low of a reading.

      NOTE: Before you begin with the actual test, make sure the threaded adapter is screwed in good and isn't leaking any air out around it.

      ACTUAL TESTING

      With the throttle in the wide open position, push the start button and crank the engine over until the hand on the gauge stops moving. Each time the engine turns over the hand should raise a little more until it reaches the maximum compression of the engine. When it stops, that is your compression reading. This usually takes no more than 10 seconds. Try to avoid cranking an engine for more than 10 seconds at a time as this is hard on the starter and the battery. Now, push the relief valve on your compression gauge and that will reset the hand back to zero. It's a good ideal to repeat the test a couple or three times to make sure you get an accurate reading. On kick start models, it will be the same procedure, but obviously you will be kicking it over instead of using a start button. Worn piston rings and cylinder walls will increase the number of strokes it takes to reach the maximum reading. If you're kicking, it could possibly take as many as 10-20 kicks to get the highest reading.

      THE READING

      You will need to check your repair manual for your particular model for the correct compression specifications. See note below. Usually, an engine will run OK if it has at least 100 PSI of compression. Most engines will have somewhere between 100-250 and some as high as 300 PSI, depending on the engine. Sometimes they will run with under 100 PSI, but usually not very well. If you get a low reading, you can do a "wet test" to try to help determine the problem.

      If your reading is too high, then you probably have carbon built up on your piston and combustion chamber.

      NOTE: You may get a low reading on some engines because some engines have a decompressor assembly built into the camshaft. Check the service manual for your quad to see whether or not your quad has a decompressor assembly built into the cam.

      WET TEST

      If you got a low reading, pour about 1-2 teaspoons of clean motor oil down into the cylinder through the spark plug hole and do the compression test again. If your reading increases, then your rings or cylinder walls are probably worn. If your reading doesn't increase, then it's probably your valves. You could have a bent valve, you may have leaky valve seats, or your valve clearance may not be adjusted properly. Also, low compression can be caused by a blown head gasket.

      CAUSES OF LOW COMPRESSION

      *Worn piston rings or worn or damaged cylinder walls
      *Leaking valves
      *Valve clearance not properly set
      *Blown head gasket

      CAUSE OF HIGH COMPRESSION (stock engines)

      *Carbon buildup in combustion chamber and on piston

      NOTE: Compression testing is a good way to keep track or "gauge" the wear in your engine. When you first get your ATV or when you rebuild the engine in your ATV, you can do a compression test and then later on, you can do them periodically. This will help you determine the wear in your engine each time you do a compression test and will guide you in knowing when your engine needs rebuilding.

      This is about all I can think of. I hope I didn't leave anything out and I hope this helps everyone with their compression tests.
    • As dumb as this sounds how is this done?
    • Try a compression check. And make sure the choke is opening all the way.
    • They are not the best out their but for the price and your average person not too bad I guess, Its going to send lead to where its pointed. This is probably what is going to happen he is going to buy a package shoot it for awhile then start upgrading everything to how he wants it and it is going to end up costing way more than if he just built one himself how he wants it.  
    • Hello, well I convinced my brother in-law to pick up my buddies old 1980 185 although pretty sure he said it was bored out to a 200? Here is the deal it's been sitting for a solid 8 years. I know it ran fine before. Not the delema-----   It starts right up (he bought a new carb odd amazon) although it sounds like a jet with high rpms. Looked at the throttle cable that's fine. Floats are fine. So he plugged this hole in the air filter and got it to idle down although when he hit the gas wouldn't get any power. Read a few things online and they tell you to just bypass the filter box and all that so back to amazon we went to get one of those filters that mount right up to the carb and it's still the same issue..   I just haven't seen anything like this? Do you guys have any thoughts or tricks that we/he could try?! Thanks in advance
    • Hi Everyone,  I'm looking into buying my first true fish finder and I'm a little perplex with the mapping card situation.  I'm looking at Humminbird Helix 5's and 7's.  I'm drawn to the autochart feature.  From my understanding, you can record 8 hours of charting onto the internal storage, but, is there any native mapping included on the unit or do I absolutely have to get some sort of mapping chip, zerolines or lake master, or navionics?  Can I store data on a blank SD card?  I've been researching this a lot and haven't found any conclusive answers. Thanks everyone!
