  1. I have been asked by a few people how to find my property. I have an address but it's not in the system yet. I guess it takes a while but the county said police fire and postal services are notified immediately. So here is a picture of my onX hunt app with my property outlined and the GPS coordinates So it can be looked up on Google earth. Be aware that Google earth doesn't care much about this area. My neighbors house was built 5 years ago and does not show up. They don't update much in these parts. I like that! Sent from my SM-G986U using Tapatalk

  2. Polishing up the corners on my truck before I 'really' put it up for sale this time, this pic has been in my mind. All in jest...

  3. No matter what direction a person's political compass points, I'd say it's safe to say that the answer is because of politics. It's a shame how much of the world's history is ruined by politics.

  6. I filled the coolant this morning, got all the 1010011 stuff straightened out and put a few miles on it this afternoon. So far she runs just great with no blinky lights on the dash. Happy to have my little wagon back after 2.5 months. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  7. Unfortunately ordering a 1.5 year span from 20 years ago is a extremely hard find. Are you sure I cant talk you into a 3rd gen? Way better truck, honestly. And I loved my 2002 6sp. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

  8. Tomorrow morning I head to my property for the weekend to get a bunch of work done! Friday the dozer gets delivered and then my friend who is going crazy out of his way to help out is coming over with a mini excavator in tow! We will get the driveway and culverts in dig some perk test holes clear an area where I can put the 5th wheel so I don't have to haul the camper over every time I go. The area we level will be the location or close to, of my house when I get to that point. The next things will be power and well, both of which are in the works. Once the perk holes are dug I can call to have perk tests done and start planning the septic system. After this weekend there will be a huge weight off my shoulders! Getting this driveway in so there is real access to the place is going to be huge!

  9. Finally had a bit of time to work on this again. I got the alternator, thermostat, fans, radiator and cylinder head back in. I had to make block off plates for the manifold and intake. The kit doesn’t come with block off plates to delete the EGR cooler and associated plumbing. The head is manageable without a lift, I pulled it out by hand. But I was worried about screwing up my back or smashing something going back in so I used the cherry picker. Lots to do still but it feels good to finally make some progress.

  10. We made it back at 11:30pm last night. Pretty good trip. The truck is running so much better with the new tuning. I could set the cruise control at any speed and not have to ever worry about EGTs. Highest I ever saw was 1100*. Granted we were not towing, but EGTs have been a concern on some passes even when not towing. The aux bed tank worked perfectly. 850 miles without stopping for fuel. I put in 60 gallons before we left. 35 in the factory tank and 25 in the bed tank. Rolled into the house last night with an 1/8 tank. The gravity feed worked as expected. Just need to change the front shocks before the end of the month and she should be good to go.

  11. Have you checked for boost leaks? Also inspect your turbo. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

  12. Looks like 1 steel weight and 1 lead weight to me. The steel ones seem to be a bit more difficult to use because they aren't malleable to the wheel very well....

  13. If you go with POR 15, follow the prep directions to a T. I was probably not as thorough as I could have been. Mine started peeling after less than a year. Of course it did spend the winter outdoors in the Arizona sunshine(UV)🌞 Also, clean up is hard, so have lots of extra brushes.

  15. Well I ran out of parts to put in so I hit the button a few times and darn if it didn’t start on the 3rd try and purred like a kitten. I wasn’t sure if I’d have to purge the fuel system or not but apparent it does that itself. The dash was blinking like a Christmas tree because the computer isn’t happy with the missing parts. I need to get that sorted this week, no big deal. The injectors in these things are balanced and I’m not sure if I put them back in the same holes so I’ll have to check the injector numbers in the computer and make sure I got that right. Still needs coolant too. I forgot to order one of those vacuum coolant purge units [emoji2955]. Shiny new pipe. Still can’t figure out where this stuff goes. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  21. oh there were boulders. One in particular was a leaverite that you can make out on Google satellite view, but I didn't see it in the brush till I encountered it. after a few test bashes we decided to go around that one! This one though, I could reduce its entropy after about 5 minutes of prying and lifting. it was located about underneath Mark's trailer in those deer pictures. There's plenty of rock up on that knob to use, lurking just beneath the surface. there is enough rock up there that we dug 10 perk holes to get four

  22. The driveway is done! What a weekend! Thank God it wasn't too hot (it was in the 80's) the dust and the smoke were terrible! Coughing up dirt clods all weekend. The dirt we got into was like flour and it was pretty calm as far as wind so the dust hung in the air. Kelly wore a mask most of the time but to keep the dust out not the covid. We got a total of 14 loads of rock and 2 culverts to get it done. Had a scare when Kelly had a coolant issue with his truck on the way up but luckily it turned out to be a hose fitting that weeped a little under pressure. I was great to have Kelly there and all his toys!!! Could not have done it without him! We got perk holes dug now I need to get after the paperwork and submit it to get them inspected. My well will not be drilled until spring. They are too busy drilling wells for people who's wells dried up. Just to clarify it was only Kelly and I doing the driveway. My friend Warren and his wife and mother in law were up at their place by mine and we had dinner with them while we were up there, that's why I cooked so much. It gave us a reason to get away from the work for a while and relax. I will post pictures off my phone later. Now its back to the grind.

  23. Ended up ordering the Cooper ST Maxx from Walmart online, $1,725 with free shipping to my house. I'm sick of corporations telling me what's best for me. Apple, Samsung do it, John Deere does it, the list goes on and on. And now businesses and politicians are telling us what's best for our medical care, not doctors. Add Discount Tire to the list. I tried to order the BFG KM2s online from discount tire direct and it let me add my address, credit card etc but wouldn't give me a submit button until I provided a vehicle they would fit on. Doesn't matter if you have aftermarket wheels or not. So I went to the store today and they won't order them so I can take them elsewhere to install without inspecting my vehicle to make sure they would fit. I said what of I had aftermarket wheels, they said they would have to verify that before they could even order them. So I'll never give them another dime of mine.

  24. And there's the conclusion to the truck's first major haul. 1946 Ercoupe 415-C Seattle to Reding CA and back to Seattle 1,184 miles plus a little bit of driving around for stops. Over 1,200 miles in the end. Sent from my SM-G892U using Tapatalk

  25. Gary, I just mean it's not like the new trucks where the bed and extended bubble butt fender/flair whatever it's called is all one molded piece. Mine still has the regular bed with the dually bubble butt fenders as separate. As far as finding one, I plan on paying my deductible and letting my insurance make me whole again, whatever it takes.

  27. Are the diffs the same ratios? I’m with Gary on this, especially if they’re 3.5 gears. Rob all the good stuff off the old truck and take the time to make the new one just the way you want it and never look back.

  28. Make sure to look at the intercooler pipe boots also, not just the clamps. You might have a dry rotted boot that is cracked and leaks when under pressure.

  29. Suggest you see what’s been done before adding additional HP or do anything you might just cause more headaches to yourself , auto , 5/6 speed ? , if manual what clutch if auto stock or helped out and if helped in what way older 2nd gens have weak head gaskets and that needs to be in your total HP thoughts I know you know all this but I’m just being the good devil on your right shoulder cherping in your ear 😁

  33. So thanks to the replies this was a real learning curve lol .. my unit was with the heater mounted from inside the trailer next to the fridge . Had to remove then tear apart the thing to find the sail switch ( it was hidden inside the squirrel cage attached to the inside on the cover ) I had to remove the squirrel cage cover after getting into the unit tearing it down a bit ... one big lesson have a bottle of liquid bandage handy .. four bleeders later wiping blood from floor , fixtures and me ( four separate occasions 😖 ) up down like a yo-yo for this alone . Being on Warfarin blood thinners it doesn’t take much to have bleeders, mix that with all the sharp tin and screws on this project you get the picture . Good news it’s now working and wife’s teeth removed from my Azz , we’ll be needing the heater next weekend as we go down to Mammoth Mountain for Grandsons Mountain Bike race with near freezing night time temps .. BTW Grandson on track for 4th in a row championship in his division ( he’s racing one age group above his age group) he won third in a row race last week .

  37. Byron and I had a nice little drive yesterday. I left for his place at 5:00am yesterday and we jumped in his dually to head for Richland. Got there and met with Gary (Ramn4ever) and hooked up to my new temporary home for the property. Gary was a HUGE help! He had the trailer all ready to move and removed the porch steps loaded them on a trailer and hauled them all the way up my property for me! After a run from Richland to my property we unhooked the trailer and unloaded the steps and got it set in its new home. Other than a close call while turning it around that resulted in a busted cap on Byron's auxiliary fuel tank and on the way home us hitting a black cow standing in the middle road. That definitely woke us up but good! No damage to Byron's truck and he braked and swerved just enough that we only bumped the cows head. If Byron didn't have great high beam headlights we would not have seen it in time and hit it broadside dead center of the truck. It would have been bad! All in all it was a pretty uneventful trip for Byron and I. We spent a lot of time talking about all of travels we have had and very few came without their share of problems. I owe a huge debt to Byron for his help. After setting up the trailer we headed for home. I got back to my house at 1:30am this morning. Haven't had a drive that long for a long time. It was great see Gary and to spend time with my old friend Byron! Sent from my SM-G986U using Tapatalk

  38. A bit more time at it today. Timing belt and serpentine belt with associated parts are in as well as the glow plugs. I should have swapped out the serpentine tensioner while I had the alternator and thermostat out, I didn’t realize the bolt goes in from the back side but I eventually got it. The clamps for the turbo oil line are also especially challenging. I’m taking way more time than I should on this stuff but everything is getting a drop of loctite and getting properly torqued. Here’s a couple pictures of how the updated timing belt cover fits. It’s nice and tight around the serpentine pulley. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  46. I'm going to guess. In 2006 the truck had enough damage to total it and write the owner a check. Then someone bought it and rebuilt it. So look at a picture of your truck but 15 years ago when the truck was worth 29 to 30k. I'd keep looking. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

  48. I try to avoid buying fuel in CA because of the price. Actually, I try to avoid EVER going into CA whenever there is a practical alternative. WA state won't be too far behind CA for fuel costs once our Idiot Governor's recently passed fuel tax takes full affect. 😡 It is predicted to add 80 to 90 cents/gallon over the next few years.🙀

  49. I run Stanadyne, and I even tried a bottle of ATF once, ran fine. I don't think that amount of oil will do anything but help your engine stay happy. The further away they get from diesel oil the worse it gets.
