  • Steve Wood: I would be love a belly tanker!
    February 18 2020, 02:43:16 PM
  • earlbrown: I scoured my area a few years ago looking for a belly tank.    Didn't take long to realize there's none to be had.

  • TexasT: [link] GN vs 5.0 Mustang at 1:36 not much but the GN is winning  I like these vinwiki stories. Way better than network tv

  • Scoobum: 6 months is up...time for another new truck.
    February 20 2020, 05:00:16 PM
  • gusszgs: Doing a motor tare down. How important is it to keep the lifters matched to the cam lobes if reusing?
    February 20 2020, 05:03:37 PM
  • Scoobum: Use an egg container and match them to the holes they came out of. Lifter has to match the cam lobe.

  • Scoobum:'s my vid...[link]
    February 20 2020, 05:50:51 PM
  • Steve Wood: If it does not, you will be tearing the engine down to wash all the bits of cam and lifters out of the oil passages.
    February 20 2020, 05:51:23 PM
  • gusszgs: Thanks guys
    February 20 2020, 06:03:11 PM
  • Scoobum: Okay...out the door to see if I can deal my new 6 month old truck in on another new one.
    February 21 2020, 08:50:38 AM
  • Scoobum: SOLD!!!!!!!...[link]
    February 21 2020, 01:31:00 PM
  • Steve Wood: could not find the noise?
    February 21 2020, 02:10:01 PM
  • nocooler: I figured Brad ran it out of windsheild washer fluid
    February 21 2020, 03:07:29 PM
  • Scoobum: Steve, the noise went away gradually as the Krown rust control worked its way outta the bushings.
    February 21 2020, 05:57:53 PM
  • Scoobum: I got a killer deal on the truck late last summer cuz they wanted the last of the old 2019 body style gone. This new one is the last of the new 2019 body style. I grabbed it without losing a nickel. Basically traded it straight up. I'd be crazy not to.
    February 21 2020, 06:00:36 PM
  • Scoobum: Goes like jack the bear with the 8 speed transmission. Keeping rear tires on it could be an issue.
    February 21 2020, 06:02:25 PM
  • Steve Wood: damn...good deal!
    February 21 2020, 06:19:37 PM
  • Scoobum: Jeremy. I have yet to fill the windshield fluid up. Resevoir must be huge. Steve...this truck was made for old farts like you and me. There's a button on the key fob and in the truck that lowers the tail gat automatically. Push button start and remote start so I don't have to freeze my ass off getting into a cold truck in the winter.
    February 21 2020, 06:34:24 PM
  • Steve Wood: sounds perfect to me! that 8 spd should make it really move
    February 22 2020, 12:14:42 AM
  • Scoobum: Gas mileage with this one now mwas averaging 19.4 in the warm weather...but has dropped off to 18.2 in the cold weather. Let's see what the new one gets. I take possesion on the 28th.
    February 22 2020, 08:55:46 AM
  • Scoobum: to toronto to look at 3 Vettes.
    February 22 2020, 08:56:58 AM
  • Scoobum: Steve, I asked a guy to join here. He has an electrical issue. There's no one that knows the electrical circuits in these cars like you. He keeps popping the CCI fuse and no one has come up for an answer for it on the other board. I've burned out the search engine on the other board. Have fun.
    February 22 2020, 09:08:05 AM
  • Steve Wood: the CCCI fuse basically appears to supply power to the ignition module whereas the ecm-ign fuse powers the module and several other devices.  If we are talking about the CCCI, then it would appear to be either the module pulling too much power, or a short in the wire between the fuse and the module that may be momentary
    February 22 2020, 12:47:36 PM
  • daveismissing: What has he replaced so far Brad?
    February 22 2020, 09:00:30 PM
  • Scoobum: Looks like the coilpack/ignition module. Prolly what Steve says. Shorting out somewhere. John Spina has chimed in as well.
    February 22 2020, 10:04:46 PM
  • Scoobum: Leafs lost to a beer league goalie tonite. Good God...
    February 22 2020, 10:06:15 PM
  • Steve Wood: A coil that it's going bad will run the module after a bit and cause it to pull more current as well
    February 22 2020, 11:35:20 PM
  • daveismissing: If I was the coach I'd call a 7AM practice tomorrow - disgusting.
    Today at 12:00:15 AM
  • Scoobum: Other than Freddie Anderson, the rest of them are just there for a paycheck.
