  1. 6.4L piston

    Comparing to the Cummins piston the 6.4L Ford Diesel piston is rather unusual in design. This one burned the edges rather well.
  2. Track Bar

    So what is your source for Luke's Links? Post up a link please...
  3. Track Bar

    Just a bit of information for the others Moog is no longer American made. Mostly foreign like China. I will say my previous track bar was a NAPA from in McCall and it lasted a good 100k miles roughly. I'm not complaining. I just being on a limited budget I had to settle for something a bit cheaper so I opted for Autozone. The big mistake I should of paid attention to the ball end and if it had a grease zerk or not. Which I didn't so this another reason I kept my old bar so I could rebuild with a Luke's Link. NAPA track bar are like OEM quality for size so it should work. Moog on the other hand is too big at the ball end. Moog on the left and OEM on the right.
  4. Stupid people?!

    I understand that part but I also understand why some states enforce inspections. The site I visit and look over the crap that shop mechanics deal with is totally unbelievable that vehicle owners do these things to a vehicle. Here I'll share my link just pan through the photos... https://imgur.com/r/justrolledintotheshop
  5. Track Bar

    I kept my old track bar so later on I can rebuild it with a Luke's Link. Just gotta get the extra funds for it.
  6. Redneck campground

    Hmmm... I might be able to snag some wonderful spruce tree seedlings. I'll have to look and see if they are still small enough to snag.
  7. Stupid people?!

    Now I know why there is safety inspections in some state. How can people be this stupid and continue to drive around with something grinding? This is crazy that the bearing is long gone and the hub has eaten into the knuckle that far.
  8. Redneck campground

    Finally after about 4 days of work to clean up my wood cutting area in the corner of the yard I've now got a redneck campground. Just a place to go hide from the world without even hitching up and going anywhere. Just got to go unlock the door and fire up some heat. I'll set up my solar panels and use those for recharging the batteries. I should have enough power to keep the inverter going for TV and a few light now and then. If I'm really needing WiFi I still can get a good signal from my shop if I fire up the old router down there. So for heat, I can grab a big buddy heater and 20# propane bottle to heat the RV without using my fan force furnace. I've got me a wintertime hideaway if I so choose. The dark black smear you see is my ash pile I push out with my blade on the ATV. I've had a burn pile going for 5 days buring quite a bit of debris and trash. So I used the ash and dirt to fill in the low spots in the driveway. Nothing around here goes to waste everything is used again. @MUDDY Now you got to start building your hideaway campground too. Chop, chop my friend...
  9. Track Bar

    Well sad to say... I've had to replace my track bar for the 2nd time now in 324k miles. The only thing I'll admit I screwed up on is I bought an AutoZone track bar with a lifetime warranty. The sad part is the bar does not come with a grease zerk. I'm on a limited budget and had to get it because my truck is used for keeping MoparMom healthy with her dialysis treatments in Ontario, OR. I've kept my old bar in hopes, later on, I can buy a Luke's Link for it and just change out after the AutoZone track bar fails.

    Ummm... How long have I known you? Like back from 2005?!?! You haven't changed much...
  11. Special Ed?!?!

    From the article...

    Yeah... We'll drink beer looking at the wood pile and the splitter and continue to drink beer looking at the pile.

    No Turkey here... Might cook off my Window Licker Grouse. Here is what I've been doing... Splitting firewood, burning off my garbage pile. Funny how soaking wet bark will burn just fine with nearly 5 gallons of oil poured on the pile. That also got rid of an oil change and half for me. Nice to have the wood splitter hooked to the ATV and I dont have to pack the firewood. Then the plow blade in front will be handy later on to push the trash pile back in the fire more.
  14. Special Ed?!?!

    Ummm... How do you deal with this problem?
  15. Chevy's weak wheels

    Too much time and money spent on the cool factor and less on operational safety and correct function. I learned that lesson last year driving back and forth on the highway with the road salt caked up on the side windows so you couldn't see to change lanes. I hate wide tires that sling junk all over the side windows.
