At home: Tim's project hot rod is finally in the stage where he can see if it starts up. It doesn't. Tim takes a break. Jill wants him to fix a doorknob, the burner on the stove, the gas line and the ice dispenser. Tim keeps postponing them all because of the hot rod. Jill declares that she will fix the stove and the ice dispenser. Tim forbids that and promises he will fix everything, "soon". Jill becomes tired of waiting and calls a repairman to fix the stove. Tim does not approve. Then the repairman sees the hot rod and in an instant forgets all about the stove... In Tool Time: It's Lawn Care Week. Tim gives a speech about mowing the lawn and presents several types of grass. Later during the week, they will salute clippers and sprinklers, but first they salute fertilizers. Written by

Tim tells Gus the repairman that his hot rod engine is a Chevy small block that's been bored out to a 383. It has a 400 crank in it. Putting a crankshaft from a 400-cubic-inch Chevy small block, which has a longer stroke than a 350 ci small block, will bring a 350 up to 383 ci. Therefore, you don't bore a 350 to make it a 383.

Do you suppose that if this grass were on fire, it'd call Fescue 911?
I don't think so, Tim.
