    How did shawns poor vision turn into me not being able to tell the difference between a 6BT and a 4BT???? I have personally removed the engine from this truck alone more times than a lot of mechanics have done these engines....... I am a freakin expert at this and not in a good way.

    Well Mike, since we volunteered you to have a Bomb Party, do you want us to pick the date for it too?

    That may have already happened.. 35 psi of boost, 900F EGT’s and half throttle. Pretty sure it went clear to overdrive fast!

    I took Terry to Rufus woods fishing for her birthday since our trip to fish Columbia River salmon got cancelled. We had a great weekend the campground was almost empty and very few people fishing. I would have loved to find some walleye but this is a lousy time of year for fishing them. We caught few decent fish the first couple days and on her birthday Terry got a real treat! I had just got lines in the water when the first pole went off and she brought in a nice 8lb fish and she got that pole back in the water and I was cleaning her fish when the same pole went off again. Before she could get it out of the pole holder it started taking line! She fought it for 10 minutes and I had to beg her to not try to horse it to the boat. The first time she saw it she went nuts! After a couple trips to the boat and a couple runs we got it in the net. She landed a 13lb hog. That was the best birthday present I could have got her. The first couple pictures are the 8lb fish the rest are the big boy.

    Carl came by tonight and helped me tack the exhaust in it’s final position. Nothing left but filling a couple gaps.🤣 Thanks Carl!

    It took her a year to decide what she wanted to do. I told her she could get a new car or we could fix this one her choice. After we got the truck and she saw the bells and whistles I thought for sure she would want a new car. It was the opposite, she likes the heated seats and all but she does not like all the buttons and doodads to have to pay attention to. Thats what sold her on getting her car up and running again. The least I can do is make it as nice as possible for her.

    They can leak through the seal into the space between the transfer case and the transmission. It would not leak into the transfer case itself. It had fluid in it when I drained it but I did measure what was there. It could have been low enough on fluid to cause the top bearings to run dry and seize. My guess is a combination of things one lack of maintenance and two a leak somewhere that went unnoticed. These transmissions do not need to be very low on fluid to go bad. The angle of the transmission and the low amount of fluid they hold to the drain level both contribute to the problem. We definitely do a good deed overfilling them by a quart.

    Gary, send me your address. I'll ship them to you. I think only a retired guy could afford the time to sand on my set..... When I say bad I mean really bad. New sets are about 150 bucks for the pair.

    With compound turbos.🤘🏻 This thing is REALLY nice! The only options that it didn’t come with are “heads up” display and a heated steering wheel. I am still figuring out some of the things it has. It is a 2012 BMW X5 Xdrive 35D The pictures aren’t so great. I will get better ones later

    With a crew doing the work you should be free to come up! Just steal a plane and fly up! Too soon?!?!?!?!?

    For a second there, I thought this thread had nothing to do with trucks or boats. Figured Paul was doing a little manscaping. 😂

    Well, I registered to take the Rat to Battleground on Friday night for a car show and cruise. I am a little nervous about it but it should be fun. I painted the rear wheels and cleaned them up a bit. I know I said I don’t paint but I liked the red in the front wheels and decided to go with it. Might repaint the front later so the colors match but for now it will work the way it is. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    The air shut off is fully functional and the speedometer is now working. Put the first 6.8 miles on the odometer today driving down to County line park and back. It felt really good and cruised fine. I need to lower the rear view mirror so I can see what is behind me. I like to see.

    Great pictures Ben, we all loved our time on the coast and we’re definitely going back. The man says it’s wrong for me to let my 10 and 7 yr old boys take a motorized dinghy out fishing, I say otherwise [emoji867]. A picture from the dinghy of our current camp, for a few days. Not much service here. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    You can rub a little oil on the seal if you wish. I feel kinda funny typing this after seeing the picture under your signature I couldnt see it from my phone when I first replied.

    Totally unnecessary comment. Opinions are like A holes, everyone has one and all of them stink. Have a nice day Robert.
