Message 1891267 - Posted: 22 Sep 2017, 4:04:03 UTC

Well this Saturday, a neighbor is going to test fit the Dorman 15x5.5" rim on the front left of My car, I'd called and asked if He could do this for Me.


Also I called H&B on Wednesday, they said getting that a/c A frame out would take several hours, and that they'd call Me back, so far that has not happened, I'll call again on Friday and see if they have an update, and remind them of My limit on how much they can charge Me is $300.00, since that is all that I can spend on the gas furnace.

I'm very much bearing in mind your initial statement at the beginning of this thread.

Only positive, supportive replies to my posts are on-topic in this thread.
Posts that are negative or critical will be removed as "off topic" posts.
If you cannot be positive, please do not read my thread or post in my thread.

I think a positive suggestion would be to say to this company, "Look, you don't need to know my personal financial details, but at the present time I can only afford to pay $300. What can you do for me within that budget restraint to get this furnace working? Does that A frame have to go to get it working?

If any work that they deem necessary to do will cost more than that, then they have the option to choose to walk away considering the job uneconomic to get involved with. Maybe they can recommend someone cheaper?

As a supportive comment, we all appreciate the financial situation you are in, but what none of us want is to see you using your gas oven to heat your place again like you did last winter.

I was already told the A frame has to come out and why.

OK I called H&B, the appointment is for Monday, I also told the lady that I can't go above $300.00, since I don't want My rent check to bounce, She said they'd try.

I'm not sure what She said after try, so I'll leave it at that, but I will have heat, once the clogged a/c A frame is removed to allow the air to flow freely.

My window a/c unit has a removable filter, some think wrongly that if the A frame has cat hair and dust on it, that the filter needs changing, the window unit filter gets cleaned everytime a RED led turns on, this last time I had to take the face plate off the LG a/c unit and vacuum clean the fins of cat hair and dust, the filters just can't stop the stuff, it doesn't matter if it's My gas furnace or My window a/c unit, and the face plate fits snugly against the metal casing.

Well I just got back from Vons in Barstow CA, I'm a loser, I'm now at 399lbs according to the scale there, the scale said 398.89lbs, the email says 399lbs, I had to hold on to the scale cause I kept on sliding off, it's one of those where one sits down, if it's true, I've lost another 17lbs...

And I have not subscribed to any fancy diet plan or such, I don't count calories either, I just make sure most of My food is low in calories and carbs.

I'll keep that in mind, a picture or a screen grab of an email should do to start things off. I started out at 445 lbs on 01/03/2017, That's 46 lbs so far.

My offer is from 399 to 365.
If you would lose more and go below 365, it would be pretty amazing, and I might even cover that.

Good luck, Vic.

I wish it was easy. I'm fond of refined sugar. If I could lower my sugar intake then I would be in good shape. It's hard to do because it tastes so good. That and the white starches.

Sugar = Carbs, read the label, that will tell you how much of what, is inside the product that you are looking at has.

I've been using Monk Fruit for a sugar substitute. Zero calories and it tastes good.

Well there went $300.00, for a few hours work, He removed the a/c A frame, and He found a small round part(looks like a 1" button) that will turn the blower off automatically, the part is broke and needs to be replaced, I was told it could cost $15.00-$30.00, the office at H&B will call Me to tell Me how much it will be then, the cost could be as high as $122.00, but that is My guess, not what H&B will charge, but I have heat, I just have to turn off the blower manually, until that one little part is replaced, otherwise the furnace will run and run, up to now the cost has been a small trip charge($13 I think), and labor.

Of course the furnace would not turn off automatically before, now My wallet is $300.00 lighter, and a dirty a/c A frame was removed, and the furnace still won't shut off by itself.
