  1. I've already put drain plug on the pan as I've done with several vehicles over the years That's good to hear! That's another thing that I've done over the years on quite a few trucks, is an aux trans cooler. But, I haven't on this truck just cuz........idk, cuz it's so modern? But I will, tho.
  2. Rear brake light switch. Anyone have any knowledge of these going out? I'm pretty sure that's the problem with this one, but, I hate buying stuff that I might not need. Idk even know what the cost is yet.
  3. Wow.
  4. I saw some earlier comments about some Can-ams. I just saw these for sale on c.l https://sacramento.craigslist.org/mcy/d/1979-can-am-mxselling-2-bikes/6391817698.html
  5. Sounds like the XR is "Caught In The Crossfire." You're in CA? Whereabouts do you live?
  6. I'm not sure. Idk much about the rt/dt's. My wife wouldn't need any more power. She's not a thrill-seeker.
  7. We're just blabbin! However, Idk if I qualify as a "senior." Yet
  8. Toyota too. My wife had a Sequoia 4x4 and under the front around the bottom of the radiator area, was a big metal skid pan, if you will. I had to take it off one time and I took the bolts out, and lo and behold, it had 2 "hooks" that let it hook and swing out or into place, and then one bolt started and you could let go of it. Oh, and it had a drain plug on the transmission pan! Idk who the genius was that decided to not put drain plugs on trans pans, but, he should be sodomized with a Louisville Slugger! And this. Anyone know anything about these bikes? This would be cool for the wife to putt around on. https://sacramento.craigslist.org/mcy/d/1986-yamaha-rt-180/6392397680.html
  9. Had a Ranger, too. Other makes have the filter in a stoopid location too. But, I changed oil on my daughters Accord a week or so ago, and ya know what? The drain plug is on the rear of the pan. So, when the front is jacked up guess where the oil goes? Genius! And guess what is directly above the drain plug? The filter! In an "upright" fashion. Pure genius!
  10. I wasn't saying that there was a "problem. I'm just wondering if I could maybe lower the temps a bit by covering the ex pipe. I'm gonna look into the synthectic fluid. The radiator is clean. Trans is the 6L80E
  11. R.I.P Mel Ttttillis. He also did some movies. This was Cannonball Run.
  12. Ya, that's not an oversight. Any "club" that would have me as a member, I want no part of.
  13. Ya, that wasn't funny.
  14. I took Maggie out for a run just a bit ago. 26-27 mph! The Husky does about 22-23. Skeeter? Not so much He does have a bad hip, tho. Apparantely, he broke his hip at some point. Given his young age, and the fact that it doesn't slow him down much, a surgeon that looked at the x-ray said it's o.k to leave it......for now. But, at some point it needs fixing. There's a procedure that's done on Shephards and other breeds that have hip problems. FHO it's called. $1700- 2200.00 Yikes What is Femoral Head Osteotomy (FHO) Surgery for Dogs? A femoral head osteotomy, also referred to as a femoral head ostectomy or FHO, is the surgical removal of the head and neck of the femur. In simpler terms, it is the removal of the “ball” part of the ball-and-socket that makes up the hip joint. This way, the bones of the joint are no longer in contact, which eliminates the pain that is caused by the abnormal contact of the bones in a dog with hip dysplasia or severe osteoarthritis. This procedure is usually used as a last resort or salvage procedure in dogs with severe hip dysplasia that are not candidates for a total hip replacement. It is also used to treat dogs with Legg Calve Perthes Disease. Once the femoral head and neck are removed, the surrounding muscles and developing scar tissue work to support the area, and act as a false joint. This means that now when the limb is moved, the forces are transferred to the pelvis rather than the leg itself. The FHO Surgery is a fairly simple procedure in that minimal equipment is required, and no implants are needed. The procedure causes the leg to be slightly shorter than the unaffected leg, although amazingly, most dogs return to close to normal activity after the surgery.
  15. Nope. Had I known, maybe I would've named him Anubis. But, when I got him we were camped at Mosquito creek, so I thought Skeeter would be appropriate.
