How did you not have this much difficulty changing manifolds the first time Don?  Was it because of suspension parts being replaced?

I was wondering the same. In fact I should be ordering a set of the PPE for mine tomorrow along with a turbo wheel.

Nice HF chair,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

We have oil tree groves here. What a mess when they drip.

So the sewer is the green pipe? Looks like a great time to "run you own" with the soil all fresh up top.

Looks like a good job of spreading it around.

We do the food bank every year here and have always done a little better. Sure has slowed down though.

Going zip lining with the boys next weekend, well they get to.

Did a lot more diving in So Cal, just to cold up here. Nice having if you need it too. The little rescue tank is easy to carry anywhere.

Mine has the exact hose as Dons, so much less mess.  Just stick the hose in the 2gallon washer fluid jug fill it up, grab the next and done.   No more catch pan.   I use a bolt in the end of my cleAr hose with a small stainless clamp

I like the hose idea but will keep the cap.

I have used that many time for sidewalks and the slabs on the side of the house. Think I would want rebar for a HD pad.

If you DL right from the phone it happens sometimes. DL to the PC first and you should be good.

I have 2 in the works now. One for a bud and an AR10 for me. Also picking up a savage 64 F. Just $120, couldn't say no for a toy.

I would have rather cut my joints too, these are just to deep/big!

On my garage addition they did not put a joint between the driveway and door. So the foundation was tied to the driveway and now I have a huge crack about a foot from the garage door. I cut it do some stress relieve but damage was done.

If you garage is the norm it will have about a 2-3' slope in it anyway to the main door. Before you pour make sure it is a little thicker if you can with a good steel pattern. My seams are only horizontal and spaced about 4', but I wish I had 1 down the center too. Now I have a crack down the center and junk gets stuck in the seams.

Honestly, run a pipe and know where the ends are. Make sure one end goes towards the sewer and the other in the garage center or corners. Cover and attach later.

Decent progress, wondering why I saw BIG CM parts in the pics.

Glad these pumps don't have a habit of going. Does not look like a side of the road fix like my other vehicles.

Lawn got done yesterday by kids, back needs trimming still.

Got PADI certified many years ago. Picked up some used gear a couple years back and got a new rescue tank. No cold water for me.

TRN, I have used these and they work great for everything. https://www.homedepot.com/p/3M-Hand-Masker-Dispenser-M3000/100089687

Parts going back on, cool.

Is the new turbo a VV also?

I think the hood will lock straight up for service. Remove the front bolt on hood and rotate up, then put a bolt back in.

Sent you a message on the manifolds.

Sweet. Always good to go hands on and the issue in the garage is resolved.

Will there there be a floor drain in the garage?

All I did was some minor patching and sealed the stair trim.

Can you run the pipe straight up on the back of the cab? With an oversize pipe it will stay cool and have no water issues.

Sounds like a great marketing campaign. M855 at 100 yards.

Reminds me of the time I POd the Baytown PD by shooting up their steel plates with some penetrator ammo by mistake.

Nice work there with all digital. Even auto controlled valves! Looks like we have the same heater with the nickel core, better for salt systems. Just paint the pipes.

They did a standard timer on mine. I do need to upgrade it for real time info and running the solar.

Honestly, get a cover for it to keep the heat in and gunk out. Just cut to fit leaving a hole for the heated water.

In some cases the blades on fans like this are not equally spaced.  Doing this can help reduce the noise that a fan blade will make.  The unequal spacing can disrupt the air movement and breaks up the frequency of the fan blade without having a large reduction in the volume of air being moved.

..but more importantly, it allows a mechanic a place to put his arms along with tools.

I call BS, no engineer ever thought about the guy fixing his design down the road. Most likely because mechanical engineers in their own mind design things that are fail proof. Granted they never met Don.......

This I agree with. Look at the Dmax, nothing is designed to be worked on, nothing unless you pull the cab!

looking good JR.  Whats the plan for base trim?


Some 4in that had matching bullnose I found at HD. Have to cover those darn elec cutouts or I would have gone shorter. That is what I have to paint now. Cheep plastic 3in stuff went in the closet.

Not hard to clean out. I lubed mine and 10 years later it was fine. The spray gun is easier than an air sprayer is. Mine is a Spraytech 3000psi with a dual piston.

They make gas powered to if you think it will be just for the farm.

Don, do you have an airless? I think it would work just fine for Chief and any other task you have out there and they don't really pull that much power. You have the generator or just pull near the few outlets you have at the hide.

Nice thing is little overspray with them and you can spray at any angle.
