  1. Other than the secretive methods used to find data, why can’t we see what WE bought? It’s such a stupid question I can’t answer it, which is even more ridiculous. Smoking..... Was doing some research on socialist countries. You assume they steal your personal rights for the collective, they don’t. In China the government still slaps smokers a high-five. Government sells them the tobacco. >60% of all Chinese doctors smoke. Once they control (and tax) a vice it’s time to cash in. Same crap coming down the pike here. Check the ratio on relation of psychosis and Marijuana use.
  2. Shouldn’t. The throttle response software (12b) loads to the vehicle ECU. Your HP upgrade will change the engine ECU software. So they are only related by marriage.
  3. If they are original, and you have the cash, replace them. Otherwise run them. Most of the injector line fires occurred on ASET AC engine and not the ASET AI engines (like yours). Did you shop PAI for parts cost?
  4. After reading about your town I can’t picture what the locals think they have to lose if you build? Maybe I’m misinterpreting the “big plans” they have for the area. Whole place seems basically as Podunk, USA as the economically sleepy town I grew up in.
  5. WOW! That’s the stuff legacies are made of Paul !!! My only thought is put up a sign on the construction site which reads........ “Future 1,140 acre mass grave for soul-sucking green bureaucrats” and see if they go away? These mini-potentates are going to be the ruin of this country.
  6. Built a trough into the lawn's V-slope...……….January rain had filled it, snow kept it there and it froze level with ice. I had a guy come in and epoxy coat my foundation when we built, so the only spot where there was no epoxy (pipe from garage drain into basement) leaked about a quart onto the floor. They V'ed the clay (toward the house) under the garage foundation to make the drains PVC run and backfilled with sand, making a permanent threat of backflow if the drain ever freezes shut....and it did.
  7. Snow phenomenon....It appears that if you get enough snow weight it bears down upon itself, compresses to the frozen ground and becomes a slush gasket nothing can flow through. Then when you add 51 degrees and a 2” rainstorm the water runs BACK at your house and follows the only path of earth that isn’t frozen because it’s tight against the warmed foundation, which is still permeable, and pools up despite the drain tile. Hope your having better luck EZ, it’s good you got snow.
  8. Somebody did this swap on here, not long ago, to a standard, non(should say “less”) emissions E-tech, like a 2001.....and made it work in an ASET AC chassis.
  9. Best picture of the conflict over that little spec of earth is to wiki Abraham (prophet). It outlines the three branch conflict of religions. The ownership conflict starts with the “covenant” and basically excludes Christians and Muslims, or other people’s group, from ownership. Seems kosher (pun intended) except captivity was two parts. The divided kingdom period wasn’t only occupation of Israel (north kingdom). It included Judea(south kingdom), which was also just as much “Israel proper”. The Assyrians captured and enslaved the North. The Babylonians captured and enslaved the South. It was a 70 year dual exile that Daniel, Ezekiel, Esther, etc lived through. It’s also a center bridge of the “Fertile Crescent”, so the birthplace of civilizations. Historical gold, so everybody can’t seem to leave their hands off the prize.
  10. No doubt conservation is key. Its the extortion of law abiding, clean, industry I'm talking about. Take a perfectly law abiding point-user, IOW-some company who takes water out of a river at one point and returns it to the river at one point. Even the parking lot sewer drains are treated and monitored before returning to the river so no run off. We are above two converging rivers. The point (south of us) where the rivers meet is a starting hot spot for nitrates. Ends up one branch goes through farmland and one comes from point-users with no agriculture. The farmland river branch is hot with nitrates, the industrial branch has a clean number of PPM Nitrates. State says "what do we DOOOOOOO!!!!, we need to get the nitrates south of the convergence lowered. Solution: State.....Threaten the point users to bring the PPM lower to compensate for the farms deposits Factory...……. "we can't, it is almost as low as the inlet water" State.... if you can't lower the PPM pay a fine or sponsor a shoreline run-off control program for farmers on the other branch of the river Factory.... send us the fine, we are not going to manage or sponsor your shoreline control program True story, among a host of other crap the state has pulled since I've been here.
  11. I have a 13.5 liter Deer out in the field with a semi-failed OHC. I did install a new follower about 2 years ago and it's still going and passing every oil test. Initially I sent the pic to JD reman and they said for the hours I had...... the new roller was a final lease on life and to replace the engine when the camshaft goes. That follower looked nowhere near as bad as yours. I can't believe you would still have a hardened surface veneer left on your cam ramp.
  12. Maybe I'm looking at the wrong NOAA map a couple days back, but aren't you in a semi-severe drought?
  13. We had (have) the ultra low emissions coal precipitator system at our plant...….. moth-balled and dismantled. When we lost our coal via Obama-MACT, WPS came in and installed an oversize natural gas feed to the facility promising an "all you can eat" supply. During last month's cold snap we got shutdown by WPS, capped on consumption and threatened with a daily fine if we negatively affected the residential heating grid with overconsumption. The coal absence issue is multiple fuel sources are reliant on combining and blending. Ex- to burn bark and biomass you do best with coal as the accent fuel. Taking one fuel source reduces the boiler efficiency of other fuels. At one time we had natural gas, biomass, methane from our water treatment system and coal all burning simultaneously and intermittently relative to cost and availability. "Greeny's" don't get that.
  14. Fear not!!! , rains coming this week to really screw things up. Should shift from Snowpocalypse to the Genesis Flood. Really glad I don't live along the Mississippi River Delta. Kids are dealing with it well enough, I built a nice ski jump off the roof. Got 50-55" in Feb. What has people on edge is missing the few things they really enjoy about winter. Our group ended up canceling our fishing tour, some of the guys are coming out by you to fish Devil's, in May, for a make-up trip.
  15. Beer, bacon and Jango can pull you straight through a 40 hour week of snow removal.
  16. 2nd that. drive-side polish will create a minor harmony. Absence of X-hatch means the oil “hold” on you contact surfaces has been reduced and your on your way to losing the hardened surface to a spalling pit.......maybe in the next decade?
  17. If your well stocked on printer paper Mack E-Media has a free download of the service manual “ASET AI/AMI Engine Service Manual”, it’s publication 5-110. I bought a printed manual via the dealership not long ago, or you can order off this site... Go to Item Description and click on view file to download free copy. https://macktrucks.vg-emedia.com/ProductDetail.aspx?ProductId=6147&GroupId=413
  18. 😩 Flintstone’d. Sad day. Camshaft replacement time. I suspect Mpro meant to get a little rubber blow tip, on a long shanked air gun, all the way down into the injector “hole” till you covered only the smaller injector tip “hole”. Has to be Folks turning over trucks for sale when they get metal on the oil samples. How else can you explain that?
  19. Did you replace all three of the major components (start, battery, alternator) trying to fix this reoccurring start issue?
  20. Ends are 21090679 (104GC5164M-old number) $284.06, of which you need 2. Center is a 21090730, $203.99 (Both 104GC5165M3 (high temp center) and 104GC5165M (regular application) supersede to same number.... 21090730).
  21. Agree, CV is a nice truck to drive. You can do anything in any order basically, as common sense dictates since the parts all overlap in some manner...(manifold, injector, turbo). Expect to break a stud or two on the top row. I broke 2. One extracted, one got dissolved in chassis. I drill the stud center till I'm almost touching threads then go down the center of the drill hole with a high speed (ball) burr. I burr-grind a lollypop at the end of the tunnel then roll the thread shell into the void I created and pull pieces out. Don't get too wild on the burr since you don't want to touch oil or coolant.
  22. A new manifold is going to run you $900. Try to find a take-off. I included the service bulletin for high temp manifold part number. If you buy a complete manifold it will come in three pieces. The two end pieces are the same number, get the high temp center regardless of HP rating. Finding more people are dealing with elevated E.G.temps (even in HP ranges under 460) which justifies the high temp center investment.
  23. At the end of the day the cause of global conflict, and a Third World War, will be the same as WW2..... hungry stomachs. Keep folks fat and happy they will see past a lot of transgressions. Take the food off the table, as with the Great Depression, everyone snaps out of apathy and into survival mode. If a guy can’t feed his kids, and can’t do a damn thing about it, he is in a position make some very poor decisions and believe some very unhealthy propaganda. Ex- rise of the Nazi’s.
  24. Understood, when the cancer does come it's usually Leukemia. Hence I've been looking hard for the cure. Got this body from Washington State, salt free. My last 1990 finally became so rusty I had to put an axe handle between the cab and box to pry the rear door jamb forward to engage the lock jaws of the door. It was disbonded and holding on by the roof structure. Needed it for one last road trip and the final straw came one night on the big lake. I and my fishing buds were in the middle of St.Nowhere, Minnesota flying across a lake that froze into a snow washboard. The chassis/frame started shaking & twisting violently, throwing rust, and split the saddle mounted gas tank in half. Ford had me covered though...….flip the switch to rear tank . Since then I always look for two left-side gas fills before purchasing.
  25. 2 packs of 3 cans is my guess. As far as interior spraying.....I sprayed the interior of the doors.....That wept from the rain drains (onto the low door jamb), a little at a time, for almost two years in the heat of direct sunlight and will want to stick onto the wife's pants when she hops in, so avoid that mistake. In places where I couldn't properly direct-spray the underside i used a weed sprayer to inject a mixture of waste oil. Places like the up side of the inner wheel well canopies. initially I bought a cheap roll of vapor barrier plastic for when I left it in the garage. It doesn't drip for very long and stiffens up. As mentioned, direct sun can thin the tar a bit.
