Doesn't the NTSB list accidents and break it down to the vehicle? At least you could see then if there are towing issues reported so either the press or some official may look at

Nope, no codes just the engine light when it stops and then it goes out.

All my lines are original vs the hoses for the titan tank and the lift pump later using SS fittings. This was a few years back and this problem is a couple months old. So from the tank up to the filter, to the CP3, and return to cooler are original.

JR, before you get into all of that, try taking all of that cat filter stuff off and running the stock filter. 

I thought about that but its a pain to get off as I sealed it really well during the head rebuild.

I will try the lines first. Had them loose a couple times for cleaning and rebuilding and they are 9 years old.

Having an issue with my LBZ loosing prime. Doesn't do it all the time but runs fine otherwise after I pump it a few times. 113k miles

I run the Cat 049 filter up top, alum bleed screw, rebuilt filter head and no leaks I can see. 52 titan tank

Running a Kennedy lift pump that free flows but won't dry prime.

Thinking I should do all the upper lines and open up that restrictive port for a little more flow (DSP5 tune)

Is there a kit or what size lines would I need for this? Any other ideas

Good looking machine there. Don't think I've ever seen this many pics of Don unless you count his book.

Maybe for the asking price they can get all those little items cleaned up, and wake up Rip.

I need to update my stuff. Most is older and so much has improved. Just scored 210ft of 10mm but I need a new harness and ascenders. Maybe a rescue 8 too, mine is standard.

My comp is s little shy of that, but not much.

I am thinking walnut as I don't plan on saving it AND I want less mess. I do have a TSC about 10 minutes away and will check that stuff out.

He he, little story when we had some rain one season in a small town called Winchester, Ca. I was 19 just a fresh lad out of HS working as a general mechanic on a Sod farm.

So after a few weeks of rain, the water for the most part was 1-3 ft standing everywhere. A funnel even touched down once and twisted the rolling irrigation line into a nice mess.

Well, we had to get to town and all the roads were under water. This is when I had my 77 GMC lifted 6 inches with 33 tires. So heading down the middle of the roads so not to run into the ditches (you could see a few cars sticking up) I was getting close to Sunset city with an overpass ahead. As I got closer I saw a couple CHP officers watching me drive up. Moving pretty slow as I was pushing a 1-2 wake in front of me. I slowed as I came to overpass seeing the CHP there, but the wake didn't. They just stood there and the wake rolled in and covered them to their knees. Now being 19 I was scared as hell, but they did nothing and I drove into town. 

I have to find all those little parts still. I did just get a set of marine injectors though, good to about 370hp. Now for the turbo and build.

DOT is much easier,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Isn't this Norms thread!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Knew you get the hoist involved with this.

That skirt finished it off nice. Maybe a few "kia" gussets so it stays as is?

Your gonna have to hang it on an engine hoist to paint it though!!!!!!!

You "bench" looks just as cluttered as mine,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Good to see you back here Norm. I have been through a few rainy seasons in my younger years on a farm in So Cal.

Running would be great, just like I need to do with my 1500 Sub. Don does not know what running is,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,  ::)

Speaking of the media, did you notice almost all newer shows have a homosexual part in them? They push it hard to make it seem the norm.

I don't care what someone does behind a closed door. I don't want to see it or hear about or have to explain to my kids why mike likes mike.

I got a couple of AGM batteries that use in the garage with the winch. Those would work great, no fumes and around $40 used at the battery store (where i looked at forklift batteries). If you know someone who works cell towers they cycle them out way before they need to, got 2 free!

I need to those hoses on mine and check the others. No codes but I keep loosing prime. Already did the head a few weeks back. Pumps right up and runs fine otherwise.

Look at the new CTS module form edge. I think it reads those codes and is bigger than the older ones like I have.

Sounds like you covered all the base's.

Seafoam does wonders and would have freed those rings up for sure.

At least its out. Do a comp test and check the carb.

Very nice work. Did you thing about using trim screws vs brads on the reassembly?

To bad about the gen, maybe the rings are just fouled, let it run a little.

That roof will need addressing soon. Looks like mine, 10 years old.

Or just go on welfare,,,,,,,,,,,

Capping the mounts will look good and the gusset will help for sure.

As for the upper tube, I'm sure you will think of something.

How are you going to grind all that covered up?

I like some of the upper tubes I see already, but here is where I mean on the tube supports.

Cap them like the pushbar uprights.

Made the kids pancakes and sausage and I had a few eggs over messy, coffee and grapefruit. I just dropped a tad over 20, but I let myself get sloppy before this. I doubt I will ever see sub 200, my academy days were 220 and I need to double the above to get there. Got the wheel and my bike going.

Both the case and that mill are nice.

The case is easy to justify and bet you can get parts for it and the CTD would fit right in.

Mill, I bet you could find a used one for a fair price. Unless you use it all the time it seems pricey new.

Wish I could do justice to Dons, but here is a little.

My Father, Fred Sr was born in 1936 and raised in a foster home by a man I called uncle Harold. I spent many a Christmas at his house and others as my father had joined the Marines a age 17.

He served 3 terms in Korea, 2 in Viet Nam. I remember the picture of him from there as we moved from base to base with small stints of him being home with us until I was in high school. One night I remember in a small apartment in Minn getting woken up and seeing him there and hugged him long, asking if was staying home?

He was big on scouts, camping, fishing and hunting. I guess trying to make a man of me. He retired from the Marines in 1977 as a gunny.

He got me into security and finally I became a corrections officer, then a Deputy Sheriff. At the graduation he was allowed to pin my badge on as he was a Commander in the Mare Federal Police. It was a great day for us both. My younger brother was killed about this time in 89 earthquake, this brought us closer as we had wait days for to find him, much less ID the body.

After this he and I went on a few hunting trips and I remember him getting Buck Fever. I would arrange for trips without his knowledge from his job and he hated it but loved it all the same. I would come into his office and rub his head, driving him crazy.

His favorite movie was "Purple Hearts' and he told how he lived "Bat 21"

The last thing I remember is I asked him to go fishing and he said he was to busy at work. He passed a week later at work, just 63. He never got to see any of his 3 grandchildren, but somehow we think he is here watching over them.

That first bumper was ugly, but I bet it would do the job.

9000 rnds? Must have been 7.62 as 556 would only weigh 270#, about a dressed out soldier. Still, 90 seconds from both could do lots of damage!!
