Tip of the Day! / Re: Anti freeze colors
« on: Today at 12:27:56 PM »
Great point Jon. Yes, make sure of what goes in your vehicle .
I can't even keep track of brand colors anymore: pink, red, green, orange, blue, purple, and gold. Each manufacturer dyes their coolant differently.  Pink means OAT in GM and Toy, but it might be HOAT in a Dodge....then you buy some HOAT  from Mopar and it's orange....the color of Dex !!!The one that really ticks me off is that you can't buy Dexcool branded pink or red, even through the dealer....but it comes from the factory that way.
There's basically only 3 types of available coolant in the auto world. Not sure about the big truck and farm world.
First the old fashioned green (IAT), Dexcool style OAT,  and HOAT (Ford version is GO5).
Shawn and I had this discussion a while back about Mopar switching from HOAT to OAT and what happens if you put the old stuff in a newer engine (gaskets,water pumps,etc are designed for certain coolant).
Sorry for being longwinded but it's a sore subject with me.  (Don't get me started on transmission fluids)

You'd laugh at the way I put up the first one, before getting a forklift.  All I had was the little NH tractor...wait..I should say,  I was lucky to have a tractor.  I got the hoist up as high as it would go,  which was about a foot too short...so I did what any guy would do, drive the tractor up on railroad ties, with 4x4s stacked on top of them. Not too sketchy.  Lol

It was hard to get a feel for the size of the garage until you parked the truck in there.
Plenty of room for stuff.

Have to lift it? You and Mike were able to get your trailers to The Farm, and they didn't appear to be lifted. ;)

I probably love to modify things (close to) as much as you, but...
Honestly, I would consider leaving it non-molested, being the peach that it is. Maybe some 31s, synthetics everywhere, and GTG past 200k.

Problem I have with the dewalt is that #1 setting is useless and on #2 it spins so fast that sometimes it rounds out Phillips screws...#3 is definitely beast mode.

That flag made our local news this morning.

Bob, just found out that he bought 51 boxes (4 in each box) and only brought 12 boxes to the house yesterday. Smh
... guess I'll go through all of them because both he, his wife, as well as myself, like the lighter ones.

A 6.2 should have a place for a mechanical fuel pump to, if you wanted to get rid of that high mount electric thumper.

Here's a thread on Steel Soldiers that shows similar hack jobs with similar turbos.

I read some of the comments at the bottom of the NY Times page, on this tragedy, and it made my head hurt; " We need mandatory background checks, magazine bans, blah blah blah". It's like they don't even realize how restrictive CA is, and high cap mags are already banned, and there was not a single person pointing it out....freakin echo chamber.

Did the 6.2 come with a turbo? Or is it a Banks?
I worked on an 85 with a Banks for the life of the vehicle ... well til the owner passed, and it was over 350k last I saw.. never been into the engine.
It was starting to lose compression which made it slow to start in the colder mornings.
Much more dependable than the 6.5s
