^^^^^You people see that right there!

Think we are witnessing symptoms of DS disease right here

"Dave Syndrome" Makes people who suffer the malady seem all backwards, and goofy! It is said that some people sufferin' the deadly disease appear to been born without a brane!

Ya, I know I misspell'd brain. May be sufferin' from DS a little bit meself...

Another symptom is running over expensive things that you own ;-)

Bob, gonna rename this the "Chainsaw thread."

Fits right in with the strong DOT tradition that is so well rooted in our little honest forum here

But while we're destroying Bob's attempt to share his joy of building on his new property

I use the Stihl MS311 which is both a beast on trees, and a workout because of it's weight. I think it's powered by a small block chevy or something...

Yeah, I bought a MS241C pro Stihl saw but it was not technically a climbing saw. They have a top handle 12 inch bar pro saw that is like $600.  That may be my next saw purchase

Sorry, don't remember any having electric fans until the NBS. Maybe it was all the whiskey.
I actually think the 02 was the last year for the clutch fan. 03 and later were electric.

The guys who sell the salvaged GM fans to retrofit earlier vehicles all use 30 amp fuses or circuit breakers

If you have the fans install and powered 'like' stock efan vehciles both fans should come on at the same one. There should be two speeds (Low and High)

Here is the fan harness I use and have zero issues with: https://www.bp-automotive.com/product/1999-2006-gm-trucksuv-fan-harness/

The PCM should do all of the 'trigger' work for turning the fans on and off etc
...I don't

But that is one high quality looking harness right there!

I canned the factory setup as it proved to be unreliable
I have a Davis-Craig (Made in Australia) fan controller.

Runs two fans

Turns on first fan at target temperature

Delays 10 sec

Turns on second fan after delay

Runs until engine cools to 5F below target temp

Has two independent circuits

Each has its own 30 amp fuse, big-ole-fat wires

^^^Scratch that. Just realized that if you're using an oem style, I would assume you ordered one for a '07+new body style. Those things eat up the amps....they run on 40amp fuses, which means 40amp relays as well.

I'm going to try and link a schematic but may not work
No, not the 07 and newer. Dorman replacement for the 2003 or 04...Whichever year the electric fans started. And to fit the large 34" radiator

That should be 30a fuse (Maxi) for each fan, minimum 12g per fan (2-12g grounds, 2-12g powers)

OK, so I have been studying this fan issue.

I think we have established the need for a more robust ground

Looking further, I have found no GM fans requiring more than 30 amps of circuit protection, so I feel I am good there.

Some of these fans will draw a ton of amperage, especially if both are switched on at the same time. But this Davis-Craig system provides for a 10 second delay to start the second fan.

What I did discover is that there are slow blow fuses that are designed to handle amperage draws beyond their design limit for a short period of time and were created to fuse link electric motors that require a large amp draw for starting.

They do not come in mini-fuse configuration, so I ordered two maxi-fuse holders and a pack of the 30 amp slow burn fuses. I'll solder them in when they get here.

Hopefully this will put to bed once and for all this pesky cooling fan issue.

Donations / Everett Hatmaker
« on: September 15, 2020, 12:07:53 PM »
The Hatmaker family just lost their dad. One of the boys is the quarterback of the Walton/Verona H.S. team my son plays for. Saturday night while at the game, I learned the quarterback's dad had been killed in a tragic motorcycle accident less than 24 hours earlier. The boy refused to recuse himself from the game and played all four quarters.
I was smitten hearing the game announcer telling us of the tragedy while I was looking at his son standing there, literally with his "Game face" on.

Well, a Go fund me came up:

...and we just donated. I may have donated using my name and not "real-man" because I just don't know the proper procedure, but I will make an attempt to correct that.

In a vehicle they’ll put 12 all day for 30 amps.
10 would be better.
Like others have said get a good clean connection.
The 14 is definitely too small for the sake of having a fire.
Find the actual load also.
You may need to go to #8 and 40amp fuses if it’s actually seeing 30.
The motor start draw will be at the root of the trips.

Thanks all!

Good sound advice

Definitely the motor start. I witnessed the second motor just starting and the fuse went Ka-pow!

Upsizing the wire in a few minutes.

And finally, I trouble shot the fan control unit. I found a wire that was not connected as well as it could be, so that got fixed. Then I observed the fans operate with the engine running. The first time they worked perfectly. The second time a 30 amp fuse blew, so I replaced it.
It blew a second, then a third time.

After that and now on my forth 30 amp mini fuse, I checked all connections and ran the test again. This time I got the system to cycle correctly four different concurrent times. I am wondering why these 30 amp fuses are blowing. If you'll recall, the other stockish chevy system which featured 30 amp breakers were popping like a kettle of pop-corn on movie night. They were anything but reliable.

So what in the heck can be wrong??? I have good connections, I have what I think is a good ground. I have 14 gage wire run as a ground and at the moment I am eyeing that as a possibility. With a ground wire too small (If it actually is) the load wire would have to spike as it loaded up. But, this ground wire is not the same one that existed with the old system, so it may very well not be that either.

Did someone place a curse on my truck by chance?

CIEMR / This election will be delegitimized

This election will be delegitimized

A CIEMR by Don Harward

Call it a prediction, and I’ll a little ill at my stomach just thinking about it. But I am a soldier, always have been. And we warriors have no time for fluff, we look at the facts. Those of us who have weathered a storm or two have observed the human condition and people’s reaction to various stimuli and witnessed the results. Sadly, humans are not the best with regards to character, but that is not our fault. Yea, not our fault

Rewind back to a single event a very long time ago. A woman was standing in the shadow of a tree. This tree had a special fruit. The fruit was both physical and spiritual I would suppose because it could be eaten and provide its nutrients, but it also contained something forbidden. The bad part, of course was the knowledge of good and evil. The woman was seduced by a crafty one. Better than Hillary, more practiced than Biden, and more believable than all the charlatans at hand on than any of our “News” channels today. He of course in his natural form of a serpent was the devil. He said, hey, try this, it’s really good, and why is God keeping the good stuff from you and your husband anyway?”

So we know the story, but few actually believe it and therein lies our greatest problem. We really don’t believe all that God-Jesus thing really happened. Now I would caution you right here about just blowing off the whole Jesus salvation thing. Do you know what the only unforgivable sin is?? Do ya? God will not forgive those who did not accept his son as their Lord and Savior, and that right there my friend is a fact!

So, you be warned, lets continue. I hope I am reaching a bunch of folks who are on the fence over what is going on with the election, because you will need to find the “OOMPH” to make the leap to the right before or after the election when the real fireworks will likely start. If not, you may be swallowed up by the serpent before you know it. You might discover in a split second when you were not expecting it that you are experiencing zero blood pressure (A phrase often used by my SEAL friends who deliver that condition for a livin’) and your spirit is not climbing toward a light, but rather descending toward another kind of light.

OK, sorry for the right turn toward the divine here, I guess God had a different idea for where my fingers were going to fall on this rather used keyboard, but I was thinking I was going to write about where I see all this political juxtapositioning heading. Biden is assembling an enormous legal team. He reportedly has hundreds of lawyers, some ex-solicitor generals and a lot of dirty (Read: Soros) money. He is calling this assemblage a free election protection coalition. Bull crap! He is a liar and a deceiver. He wants to use attorneys to prevent election corruption? Let’s recall for a moment how effective attorneys really are. Remember OJ Simpson’s murder trial? There was like a seven out of a million chance that his DNA did not match that of the murderer, and I guess that was good enough, he was acquitted. I suppose there is about the same percentage of possibility that I am the queen of England.

With the liberal dispersion of ballots being sent all over Mexico, err, I meant Nevada, we know that state will report reliable voting results, right? Isn’t that Harry Reid’s stomping grounds? You know Harry, that stalwart of integrity who was once the senate majority leader? Yep that man is incapable of the truth, err, I mean lying and cheating.

Election fraud is going to show up in a really big way. We will not know who we elected and the Electoral College may not be able to cast their votes as a result, for some time. Those votes which are supposed to represent the majority of the people from their portion of the America could therefore be skewed. It’s “Gi-Go” as we say in aviation sometimes. With respect to entering data into the navigation computers, garbage in=garbage out. Anyway you shuffle and deal it, the thing is a mess. The Don predicts that circa the Florida vote count between Bush and Gore in the way back, this whole country’s voting results will be as wrong as two left feet. And what would result from all that?

It sets the stage for the nastiest play in the left’s evil playbook. First the ANTIFA’s and BLM’s and ZLM’s and “Q’s” and whoever will pitch a fit. Pitch a few other things as well like bricks and firebombs. That in itself will create a nationwide “Black Panther Party” borrowing from the movie “Forrest Gump.”
Now while all that is going on the accusations and counter accusations are going to be flying. I suspect a Covid-19.2 will show up like a dash of habanero pepper sauce in your buddy’s taco that you placed there while he was in the bathroom. What, me? No, sir, Colonel G, I never did that…

So we have all that, and let’s not forget the setup here. Mom and pop’s neighborhood bistro has one foot in the grave and the other on a banana peel and is barely hanging on. Well with all this instability, we can bet the stock market will not react negatively, right? I think that darned thing will fall off the proverbial cliff. Oh, let’s take a soldier break here for just a moment. Remember the Covid/toilet paper thing? Prudence my friendly sheeple, prudence. Stock up on some foods, some of this and that, maybe a full tank of gas, maybe an emergency radio, a heat source, generator, and if you think you’ll need it, get some money out of the bank. I think I’d be ready for an extended hurricane/blizzard season, and I really, really hope I’m wrong about that, but I fear I am not.

But for those who really know their Lord and Savior keep this precious Psalm close at hand, in the Psalm 91 The Lord says:

1He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.a
2I will say to the LORD, “You are my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.”
3Surely He will deliver you
from the snare of the fowler,
and from the deadly plague.
4He will cover you with His feathers;
under His wings you will find refuge;
His faithfulness is a shield and rampart.
5You will not fear the terror of the night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
6nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
nor the calamity that destroys at noon.
7Though a thousand may fall at your side,
and ten thousand at your right hand,
no harm will come near you.
8You will only see it with your eyes
and witness the punishment of the wicked.
9Because you have made the LORD your dwelling—
my refuge, the Most High—
10no evil will befall you,
no plague will approach your tent.
11For He will command His angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways.

It will take a perfect storm to destroy this free nation and we really can’t be set up any better than right now. Only blindness to what is going on is preventing people from seeing the gathering clouds and packs of wolves.

Let’s play around a bit here. What if there is massive election fraud on an unprecedented scale? What would our America first, America loving president do? What if the riots build to a fever pitch, not in five but five hundred cities and towns? What if the people react and fight back and there are running battles with many causalities on either side and they are happening in thirty spots at a time? What if at the properly timed moment the Covid revisits us? Or possibly a new more lethal version of our new respiratory resident?

What if the thing is so well planned and executed that the fabric of control starts to stretch to the breaking point, what then? Would this president declare martial law? I don’t know, but I would.

Should that happen then the left could say that they were right, he is Hitler, and thinks he is king. Then what, it all suddenly gets better? With rioting and communications breaking down are the trucks still safely running on our highways? Are the grocery store shelves still awash with their usual bounty? Not a chance. Americans are like embryos supported by a thin, fragile lifeline and any interruption to that thin vessel and the embryo dies. So you just grab the old .22 and off to the mountains to survive you go, that’s your plan, right?

We’re in a fight. The left who is really a masked and perfumed snake with lipstick is out for blood this time. This is not a presidential election we face, but a fight for the very existence of our republic. We could win the day, but there is no flippin’ way we do so without standing our ground and fighting. If you continue to be docile, safe, politically correct, and keep your mouth shut and do nothing then nothing is what you will end up with.

God bless America
May God protect our good leadership

SACRAMENTO -- California Gov. Gavin Newsom on Friday signed a law that would give judges a say on whether to list someone as a sex offender for having oral or anal sex with a minor.

The bill would expand the discretion currently granted judges in statutory rape cases and was promoted as bringing fairness under the law to LGBTQ defendants.

The current law, in place for decades, permits judges to decide whether a man should be placed on California's sex offender registry if he had voluntary intercourse with someone 14 to 17 years old and was no more than 10 years older than the person.

But that discretion only applied to a man who had vaginal intercourse. The new change permits judges to use that same discretion when the case involves voluntary oral or anal sex.

The measure won't apply when a minor is under 14, when the age gap is larger than 10 years, or when either party says the sex wasn't consensual.

The bill was introduced by state Sen. Scott Wiener, a San Francisco Democrat.

The law ends discrimination "by treating LGBTQ young people the exact same way that straight young people have been treated since 1944," Wiener said in a statement, adding: "Today, California took yet another step toward an equitable society."

Equality California, a non-profit civil rights group that co-sponsored the bill with the Los Angeles County district attorney's office, also applauded Newsom's signing.

"If we want a California for all, then we need a justice system that treats all Californians fairly and equally - regardless of who they are, what they look like or whom they love," Executive Director Rick Chavez Zbur said in the statement released by Wiener's office.

The bill passed the Assembly and Senate on split votes, with some members objecting to what they saw as an easing of punishments against those who have sex with minors.

"I cannot in my mind as a mother understand how sex between a 24-year-old and a 14-year-old could ever be consensual, how it could ever not be a registerable offense," Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez, D-San Diego, said before the bill's passage. "We should never give up on this idea that children should be in no way subject to a predator."

Online critics had falsely blasted the measure as legalizing pedophilia.

The bill was supported by civil rights groups as well as the California District Attorneys Association and California Police Chiefs Association.

Intel / Roger Stone suggesting Martial Law following November balloting
« on: September 13, 2020, 09:58:57 PM »
To be taken with a bit more than a grain of salt. Talk like this is more of a foreshadowing of things to come. Pay attention to the details, the intel folks always say, and many of them point to widespread unrest, uncertainty, and so forth. That will translate to a skittish market, reluctance to invest and a general pause in business. Money likes to wait on stability, and money is tied to everything. Being prepared with extra everything well prior to November would be prudent. Couple all that with a possible second Covid scare and what is looking like a hyper active hurricane and storm season, and our immediate future is very uncertain indeed



Pardoned Roger Stone is making extraordinary calls for President Donald Trump to invoke the Insurrection Act if he loses on Election Day.

"I don't want to overplay the facts here, but if somebody would study the president's authority in the Insurrection Act and his ability to impose Martial Law if there's widespread [fraud], if he will have the ability to arrest [Facebook founder Mark] Zuckerberg, to arrest [Apple CEO] Tim Cook, to arrest the Clintons, to arrest anybody else who can be proven to be involved in illegal activity," Stone, political trickster, told Alex Jones' "InfoWars" on Thursday.

"I do not advocate preventive detention, but people who commit crimes and think they can continue to get away with it, because we have a two-tiered justice, are just wrong."

Stone pointed to mass mail ballot fraud and said the Republicans leaders in the states "are not prepared for this election legally."

"There's going to be widespread, obvious, blatant, flagrant illegality," Stone continued. "The authority exists to stop that. It will have to be used, if necessary.

"I'm not jumping the gun, but I will just tell you: The votes from Nevada should not be counted. They are already flooded with illegals. If Harry Reid is involved, take Harry Reid into custody and charge him."

Harry Reid was the Democrat Senate majority leader during the Obama administration and is now retired in Nevada.

"This is not complicated and it is 100% legal," Stone concluded.

"Force will have to be met with force. That's the way this is going to have to work. It's really unfortunate. I'm not an advocate of that. I'd like to have an honest election in which the real winner takes office. The real winner will not be Joe Biden. There is too much voter fraud already going on in Florida and Nevada."

CIEMR / We are witnessing history in the making

We are witnessing history in the making

A CIEMR

By Don Harward

What we are witnessing right now is historic, unprecedented, and flat out amazing! It is especially exceptional when witnessed through the lens of scriptural end time’s knowledge.

President Trump is in my humble opinion a man who was created for such a time as this. It seems he was crafted up and placed into the office of the President by God himself. It seems we are witnessing the set up for the second coming of Jesus and all that business that is spoken of in Revelations, Daniel and some other places in the bible.

We have what, decades of negotiations between Arab states and Israel to find some way for them to coexist (And btw, I do not like to use that word). But every effort from what must have been hundreds or possibly thousands of diplomats have failed. But in the span of just 29 days we have not one, but two peace deals between Israel and a Muslim state! We even have the much hated president of the United States nominated for the Nobel peace prize. And Mr. Trump actually did something, and wasn’t just a neighborhood organizer who went slightly above what a child has to do to become an Eagle Scout.

President Trump can solidly add this to his quiver of arrows used to kill unrighteousness, injustice, hypocrisy, and evil. Way to go Sir! And in stark contrast we have Speaker Pelosi making a statement saying “Whoopti-do, what about the thousands dying of Covid?” Yea Ms. Pelosi, those thousands who were run over by a truck and then later died of Covid 19! Liar! You can’t even acknowledge the incredible courage shown by leaders both Arab and Jewish to run against the grain and get this thing done!

We have a man who just came out against the 1619 education initiative which serves to rewrite the historical perspective of the founding of the new world which became the early Untied States. Let’s get this straight. The new world colonies offered the possibility for freedom. They offered a challenge to pit oneself against all odds and scratch out a new life and reap the rewards from the hard work. For many it brought prosperity to people who essentially had no future. The 1619 dialogue is an attempt that seeks to remake the United States into a hellish place where slavery was the bedrock upon which rich whites would find their fortune. This rewriting of our history is a play right out of the communist manifesto.

I say bull crap to all that, and apparently our president agrees. He is saying he will defund schools which adopt this new interpretation of the historical record. Good for you sir for calling out these liars! He flat out said we are a nation founded on principals that honor God. Our president believes America is a place where men and women did something extraordinary and created a true golden land which loves peace, albeit through strength. He recognizes we seek to give everyone a chance to be “all you can be” to borrow on the old Army recruiting theme.

The left has none of that. They are running plays right out of the communist play book, and should Mr. Trump lose the election we will devolve into a communist state. I would have said socialist state, but I care not to fool around with tenths of a percent. If communism is akin to being served a bowl of horse manure for supper, then socialism is simply the same bowl with a bit of milk poured on top.

Trump offers a growing economy, Biden wants to tax corporations $4,000,000,000,000. Trump says we are a great nation, Biden thinks we are a place where hatred, racism, and division run rampant. Trump says welfare, after decades of its application has failed. Biden would expand the concept to give even more to those who produce nothing. A Biden America would be apologizing to everyone circa Obama apology tour number two, but a Trump America openly declares, we are a great superpower who seeks to trade and to get along with other nations and assist everyone in their time of need. We do so from a position of strength and we only ask for fairness.

Mr. Trump is a real man. He does not apologize for what he or we are, which is exceptional. He understands that when bargaining, one needs to not just appear strong, but must actually be strong. This Biden candidate is weak and appears to actually be suffering from dementia. He changes his rhetoric to fit with the most recent polling results. He is anything but steadfast. Anyone see him answer the student’s question the other night on a televised Q&A? The student asked the question, then Biden seemed to wait on a teleprompter response. He even said something to the writer behind the screen to “get along with it” or something like that. He is but an empty shell, and who exactly is writing his script? Who exactly will be running the oval office should Americans elect him?

This is the moment folks. God is watching. 2 Chronicles 7:14 if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

There couldn’t be a greater difference between the two parties. I wonder if there ever been so great a difference. One side clearly believes in communism, the other in our great free country. One side seems to be Christian or in more general terms, followers of God, and the other could care less and actually seems to worship the devil through their abhorrent acts. One side believes in peace, the other in mayhem. One party wants strong country borders, the other wants to dismantle them. One believes in the principle of work and reward and a lifetime of saving leading to a comfortable retirement. The other wants someone else to pay its people for doing nothing at all.

One party would overturn Roe vs Wade and the other party celebrates and even boasts of a woman’s right to have as many abortions as she wishes, like picking bad grapes out of a bunch you just harvested. We have a president who stops rioting in 24 hours standing in stark contrast to several democratic governors and mayors who have allowed lawlessness to continue for months.

Those who know the early history of the United States will recall that President George Washington as his first official act after being sworn in as president was to kneel and pray to God. He concentrated our nation to be one that always sought to follow the principals given from the kingdom of God and that God would bless, protect, and prosper us. President Washington continued to offer “That if we ever turned away from God, that the Lord on high would remove his protection.”

With respect to the last statement, which street do you feel we have turned down? Or perhaps we are at the intersection about to flip on the turn signal. Which way are we going to go, left turn to the on ramp toward a hellish existence or do we turn right, and get right with a living God? Do we rite this left leaning ship we are on? Do we have enough of you left with enough courage to call out what is wrong, and take action to set things right once again?

Left… (I keep thinking of the phrase “left behind”), or right toward righteousness? We really are at the meeting point where a physical life and the spiritual intersect for a brief moment. We really are about to do something of enormous consequence. Our choices right now will eliminate us as a nation of consequence and likely lead us into a civil war, or we could straighten our collective spines and truly become the great nation under God that a president from long ago prophesied and consecrated?

Where are you going? Really, where are you headed? Toward Glory and eternal life in God’s everlasting kingdom. Will you straighten things up? Will you support strong men and women who are fighting your battles and those of your children for you? Or will you decide that you just don’t like the orange man? Will you turn a blind eye to the forces constantly at work to destroy truth? Will you jump out in support of our police or buy into the lie that they are racists who quietly target minority men? Can you say I am willing to give up everything just because this president offended you? If you do, don’t plan on calling on my help. I do not separate my politics from my life. You show up as a supporter of abortion, think America is racist, and cops are bad, and I will turn my back on you. You come to me when that hatred ignites into a fire that is burning you up, and I am not going to do anything to quench the flames. In my view you made your bed, so sleep in it.

When I pull a weed out of my bed several things happen. First the flower bed looks better. The flowers have more sunlight and nutrients to flourish upon now that the weed which does nothing is removed. The weed dies. After being cast into a pile of other weeds, it decomposes and will someday be reused to nourish the flowers it once sought to take over. I never have a second thought about the weed. Whether it withers or burns up in a fire is of no consequence to me. It is but a weed.

May God reign victorious over this America and may the serpent and his evil plans be made visible to us and be slayed by America’s good people.

Getting closer to being finished with the interior. One rear sear finished and reinstalled, the entire front now complete. Only two door panels and the large rear seat to finish.

No pics

Can't find my camera...

Looked in all the suspect places, under my tires, under the mower, in the trash, out in the lawn, in the pond...and I can't find it. Can't imagine it being anywhere else!

NFL Opening Night Marred by Protests as One Team Boycotts Anthem

By Bryan Chai

Published September 10, 2020 at 6:10pm

And they’re off!

The 2020-2021 NFL season has officially begun, and scores of football fans couldn’t be more excited.
Well … maybe some fans could be more excited.

The inaugural game of the new NFL season has begun with the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs hosting the Houston Texans, but somehow, even before a single second of actual on-field play occurred, there already appeared to be controversy afoot.

First, the Chiefs revealed social justice messages — “End Racism” and “It Takes All of Us” — that were prominently featured in their stadium’s end zones:
Perhaps more controversially, the Chiefs and Texans each partook in their own respective form of protest during the playing of the national anthem.

The Texans opted not to come out for the national anthem at all. They instead chose to stay in the locker room during the playing of “The Star-Spangled Banner.” When they did come out, there were audible boos.

Several Chiefs players, including the reigning Super Bowl MVP Patrick Mahomes, linked arms. One Chiefs player, Alex Okafor, knelt during the anthem and raised his right fist.
