  1. bull dog bit back.

    Classic case of earning it. Tough when your own energy decides to come back and kick your a&@(face, etc).
  2. Dig the cardboard end plate, nasty! As a rule of thumb.......if it has no check valve in the filter I won't buy it. The few filters I've seen Walmart sell in the service dept have not had a flow back check valve installed. The system drains to pan, unrestricted, during engine off. Also found a couple NAPA Gold with non-working check valves. Particularly the 1085. I complained to rep and he said "fluid will cause the valve to start working". That was bunk. A year went by and now they started installed one that works.
  3. Weatherman is wrong again

    Good thing, was wondering how polar bear tastes...oops did I say that out loud.
  4. Jeff's feathers getting fluffed.

    Coincidence?, doubt it. Amazon decides to makes an announcement that drives the market 400 points into the ground on the day Trump was going in front of the nation to get a slap on the back for what he has done for the economy. Keeping in mind owner Jeff Bezos is a staunch, west coast, liberal who publically criticizes Trump. Hate to see that much market persuasion in the hand of a liberal, but give him points for a clever manipulation.
  5. Big Oil Announces plans to "Kill the electric truck"

    Good thought, I pretty much like the Mennonites in our neighborhood so I think when the apocalypse comes I may offer "protection for berry jelly". The Jalapeno jelly is crazy good, but when the system fails I may not be able to get antacids.
  6. Big Oil Announces plans to "Kill the electric truck"

    I never laugh at those EMP and the "Meek shall inherit the Earth". We'll be left with really good jelly and well built furniture.
  7. Big Oil Announces plans to "Kill the electric truck"

    We got hit with one of those "catch 22's". After we got the smart $$$ charge stations set up the operators complained the machines that deep cycled gave off a smell that was noxious. No options.......... the factory had to install an exhaust system at every charge area, big enough to drive a lift into. Major undertaking when you consider the value of real estate inside the facility.
  8. My E9 collection

    Salute, welcome. Nice trucks!!!
  9. Big Oil Announces plans to "Kill the electric truck"

    It will probobly be one of those ironic exchanges like we have at work, post-Boiler MACT. Can't have a coal power boiler system so forced to spend 25 million to replace it with a Natural Gas boiler................ Then get rid of all of our Gas powered forklifts and replace them with coal powered battery forklifts. Every time they plug the lift in it is sucking nook off a coal fire in the Weston Power Plant.
  10. Big Oil Announces plans to "Kill the electric truck"

    They make some good points. If you let the free market decide viability the jury will come in with a sure verdict. If you put an Obama into action with the usual Dem-Lib subsidies package...........
  11. I see American ambassador in Russia is the man up son! I did a plunge up in Canada in some ice cold, but not frozen, water. Instant ice cream headache....not what I expected. Wonder if that is why he is grabbing his head?
  12. Where did THAT come from??

    Seems like a young persons sport indeed? Can't see too many 80 year olds out there? As long as the church uses it as "means of Grace" and not "means of salvation" seems perfectly harmless and fun. In classic man's-man fashion Putin never lost his stoicism when the ice cubes attacked his weapon of mass distruction.
  13. 07 mack granite cv713 dump truck

    10-4 to what mackpro said......Those little pilot bearings in steering shafts are the root of all kinds of evil.
  14. What is wrong with people today?

    By the hair-do I'm guessing a bitter beetles fan?
  15. 2006 460 fuel problem

    Bleed the line at the head side. Stubborn suckers with CCRS injectors. The book tells you not to bleed at head cause it will create the illusion of a leaking line days later as it weeps and puts fuel close to the manifold, but sometimes it works better. Should have bled at run-in......still have to try it.
  16. Where did THAT come from??

    Thanks M of N. He is doing great. Did have a moment where I thought "If this happened a century ago, or in some poor region, he might be dead now". Sobering thought. Thank the Lord for good, competent, medical science. Concerning KS's blood test......the effectiveness of most of these remedies could be tested by passing a match over the blood sample to see if it ignites with a blue flame. How a Russian deals with his mid-winter cold symptoms..........Heck yeah! Unpublished reports claim he grabbed and iced an eelpout while down there.
  17. Where did THAT come from??

    Our three month old has the same thing, ended in broncitis, thankfully not pneumonia. Started losing oxygen, was breathing almost twice a second. Doc gave us the coolest little nebulizer. Fill'er with go-go juice, turn it on and hold it under his chin. Face gets covered with a thick foggy mist and he starts blowing smoke out of his mouth and nose like a mini Fidel Castro. Hour later he is breathing clear and a baby. Think they have them for adults too, but fluid used is not over-the-counter. Think I'm going to fake a cough so I can get myself one of those.......out-sleep Jr.
  18. Gotta love a happy ending ..... Lord grant you A long haul and smooth road.
  19. Trump and Immigration (Illegal Immigrants in the US)

    Coincidently, I lost my job to an illegal immigrant from Woodstock, Illinois when I was 19 years old. Like to remind the libs I talk to that I was content working in the ginseng fields while saving for school and those were not jobs "no American would want". Wisconsin will be seeing snow-bird Mexicans coming across the South border every harvest season. These politicians default to the flesh and emotion. They indulge lawlessness like a Heroine addiction. Common sense and solid reasoning bounces right off the skull plate. Kamp Dogg...........if you follow this thread you need to include the story of your car being totaled (and one side of the neighbor's house) being demolished by an illegal.
  20. Trump and Immigration (Illegal Immigrants in the US)

    A cool headed carry member would have fit that situation well.
  21. Trump and Immigration (Illegal Immigrants in the US)

    Questions is why are these politicians walking out of closed door meetings and flapping their wings like a buncha wet hens then cherry picking portions of a conversation to create media flurry. They have used the impeachment card so much on Trump it is becoming laughable.
  22. Dough because of Doe !

    If the Road Goat was suicidal at least she used good taste selecting the tool of demise.
  23. Russian Wine Thief?

    Nicely done, but poorly planned. Should have taken a whole platoon of "after-hours" bar patrons with him and really put a dent in the liqour store stock.
  24. Gettting an education in the Land of Lincoln. New Volvo/Mack engine line. Some pretty neat stuff, hope it holds together as planned. .
  25. New to forum... looking for advice and expertise!

    Welcome, expect to find advice by the spoonful.......expertise, a healthy dash, but never disappointment.
