    My seven year old grand daughter has been pestering me to show her how to drive the skid steer loader. Being nice today, we set upon the task. In the first video I'm not touching the controls. My hands are on my lap and this is about seven minutes after she first took the controls: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VBsX...ature=youtu.be This video is a bit later when we decided to do some actual "work". Using the "dead weight" principal and hanging from a low branch snapping it off clean, "Momma" dragged over the small branch and we put it onto the limb pile. I had to show her how to operate the controls but she basically did the work: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eELK...ature=youtu.be

    Well we had it back out today, just running it around seeing as it was such a nice day. About half way along the route it started sputtering and died, sounded like it was running lean, a quick tune of the carb later we got it back home and ripped the leaky fuel pump out, figuring it had gone bad. Then we realized the fuel pump is fine, it’s the sediment pole that’s gone bad, and started leaking. So on Tuesday we get to get one of those. Next on the list is to fix the electrical for the driver side headlights. Then we’ll see about testing the pump because we plan on taking both engines to Pump Primers in July. It’s not a guarantee but we’re hoping it works out.

    Just wanted to share some photos of the in progress restoration of my old LS. Right now she runs but very poorly but that should be fixed in a few weeks. After that it’ll take a while before any metal work or paint gets done which it will most certainly need.

    Came home from a Fishing trip to find a box from Maine. In it were cans of Moxie soda, an invasive species in these parts, compliments of BMT's resident philanthropist 41Chevy. Since everyone who tries it (social media) seems to feel inclined to comment I'm throwing mine in too....... Moxie Virgin's stop now if you don't want the spoiler. Brought the cans to a steady 38 F and cracked. Scent is perfumed and pungent similar to a Mennonite store that sells bulk spices. Flavor strikes a memory of dime store candy sticks...… more specifically a softer version of Horehound. Aftertaste is the tricked-out part of the soda. After 15 seconds the sweet dissipates and a dry bitter sets in and holds on. Unique. Stuff is a 10, salute to the Northeast for good craftsmanship. Regretfully, no availability in Wisconsin for the near future. My wife agreed we are keeping the last can (toast) till Paul has a victory over Virginia's "A-Holes".

    I very seldom comment on current events. However, it really got under my skin that all criminal charges against Jussie Smollett have been dropped. Imagine the resources that were expended on this hoax? How do the countless families feel that were impacted by violent crime while the PD was chasing their tails over someone unhappy with his salary? Smollett should have at least been required to pay restitution to the City of Chicago. If he turns up in any show in the future we should immediately boycott it and the sponsors. What ever happened to “Being responsible for your actions?” Kimberly M. Foxx the elected State's Attorney for Cook County who routinely rules against the Police should be thrown out of office. Hope she isn’t reelected next time. I now close my rant!

    Just proves that there is no racism in the USA so they have to make it up, then when caught they are let go because we need to feel their pain, happened in NY and no one paid except those that were accused of something they did not do. I noticed that Sharpton stayed away from this one. good move two phony race claims and he might have been out of job, oops forgot if your a dumbocrat you need not worry about false claims, I think the liberal braindeads should all kick in and pay back the taxpayer for the waste of money investigaing Trump. MAPA, make America poor again (vote Democrat)

    All aboard. I used to work in a fuel injection shop about 45 years ago. We had different size wires for poking the carbon out of the spray tips. Make sure all of the spray holes are about equal in diameter. Soak them in solvent before cleaning

    You could check with a PAI dealer for a cylinder or a rebuild kit.

    With such a quality prosecutor, no wonder Chicago has a crime problem.

    Thanks for following up. The splined yoke being stripped is not uncommon and really what I suspected as the steering gear input shaft is induction hardened, the yoke is not. Usually when they are run loose, the problem exacerbates itself. In your case the rough atmosphere hastened failure. Those u-joints get a workout and really need all the grease you can spare yet they are very neglected my many. The splines in the cab steering shaft are another area that wears and is neglected; especially with an air ride cab. The center pin in the spring pack breaking is a result of years of use, being run loose, (u-bolts) or impact such as potholes.

    Before you pop that center plug out ensure your parts supplier has either the complete cap for a replacment, or at least a window kit. Those plastic windows don't hold up that well and harden with time. With my luck the window breaks out as the rubber plug is also hardened from age. Then the screws won't come out from corrosion and I replace the complete cap assembly..... That looks like a "Stemco" hubcap and the number is cast into the assembly. If you can't read the number the front axle number, or wheel spoke number will be needed if you don't take the original in with you. BTDT a time or two.

    After it all I have the block heater installed so hopefully next winter if I need to use the truck on cold days I'll plug it in and I won't have to use ether. Avoided using the truck this past winter on really cold days. Last time it was started and used was the middle of December. It wasn't extremely cold but the engine struggled to start.

    That's all pretty obvious, but valid points. Funny thing, I just checked current new truck inventory at a local commercial truck dealer that used to be a big Ford store, but is now a 'truck center'. 2 new F-650's in stock, both leftover 2017 models, no bodies. 28 FTR's new in stock, all 18's and 19's, many road ready with dry van and stake bodies. Pretty clear what is selling around here in class 6. They did have a good selection of F-550's though.

    Impressive as being probably the only true American Truck company that still exists and expanded when others were floundering or acquired. I still find it interesting how it has two similar brands of trucks Peterbilt and Kenworth in the same markets but able to maintain their own identities.

    Yes this is an incredibly unusual truck as before it was assumed that the smaller radiator somehow restricted the L cab from being used, but clearly that’s not the case. It’d also be interesting to learn how many of these were made with an L cab. It also begs the question to know if a CA-31 could be put on most other Bs, the only restriction being the size of the motor in relation to the hood of course. I personally prefer Bs with larger L cabs and if it could technically be available on most Bs then that would be a very interesting discovery.
