  3. Today was the opening day here. I got out by 5 PM. Passed on a decent 8 point and saw a spike and 3 point all close by. The 8 came out at 12 yards . The spike had one point coming out weird and maybe he'll be neat in 4-5 years . I didn't get the picture of the 8 until a half hour after he got out when he was at 50 yard's

  6. Took her for a test drive today! Hydro seems strong. Looks like everything works. Engine was a little warm so I'll be fixing the wiring and gauges next to be on the safe side. Might be a while before I get more time to mess with it, but I won't have to work on it outside anymore now that I can move it around easily and it won't sit in the snow.

  7. Used to be you bought O2 simulators from summit and run a pry bar through the cat and you would gain a little bit. High flow air filter maybe a bit more, or as I finally decided after years of worrying about it, just drive it. Driving like you own it rather than like you stole it is the best way. the way i look at it is i need the truck, its not cheaper to make 2 trips with a smaller truck that gets a little better mileage and its not cheaper to own a gas sipper in addition, my commute could be 10 minutes or an hour an a half. Drive the thing if you need to and save your pennies elsewhere. People always talk about poor gas mileage like Good gas mileage is free. You have to calculate the difference and use that to make your judgment.

  9. Beam saw. Wood. The black thing under it is just a plastic cradle. I have seen a couple videos of a guy cutting concrete with this saw but it seems so abusive.

  10. I had a nice little uniden bearcat in my old truck. Ran an inline amp and I could talk 15-20 miles on a good day and no one would complain about my signal being distorted or anything. Heck, good times I could pick up people in st. Cloud that were forty miles from me, sometimes if they had good power, they could transmit back. I think my antenna was a Wilson 1000??

  12. I don't think there is much you can do, I've put lots of miles on many Chev and Dodge pickups 2006 and older, Magnum 5.9s were thirsty for a half ton, the 5.2s could be respectable-capable of better mileage than a Vortec 305/350 I think, the Dodge 4.7s are thirsty too, the only Hemi I have drove a bunch is in a one ton so it burns enough fuel, 6 liter Chevies are awesome performers and love fuel, the 4.8/5.3 Chev is the best of them all for economy and performance I think, older throttle body fuel injected and carbed small block Chevy and Dodge engines could get some good mileage, but no where near the performance of a 4.8/5.3 Ye old 12 valve Cummins is always a good one, drive it gentle with 7000lbs or less payload and it goes through fuel like a half ton empty, if they are loaded heavy and you want to run the fast lane they are capable of sucking a ton of fuel, rightfully so, seldom hear those fuel stories about them though I have a slant six/4 speed overdrive 83 D150, I haven't drove it much yet, in my experience with Chev 250 sixes they run well but a 305 will get at least 2 mpg more on it's place

  14. My '16 3.5 ecoboost gets over 20 mpg on long trips. I also pull a '33 5th wheel camper with it. It doesnt get 20 pulling the camper but its around 12 mpg on short trips. It has a ton of power. Accelerates with that camper like a scalded dog. I have my trailer brake gain set a 7 to slow it down but that turbo gasser engine brakes just as good as dads 6.7 diesel.

  16. I had one as well that sat out decades . I parted it out and scrapped the carcass not knowing a 240u was built without a fast hitch and I would end up with it😲 wonder if a 330 would work I can send my 240 down on a truck if you have an empty cow stall 😁 I wish they had a ferry across Lake Erie to cut that trip down

  19. Im happy with my sirio 2008 but theyve recently jacked the price up. I paid around 150 they are almost 300 now. Ive heard good things about the antron a99 too. If u have a radio shop nearby id start there.. power supply on amazon for around 50 bucks. The sirio i have is about 20 ft long and ive got it about 30 up, gonna go another 10 but need to set up guy wire at that point.

  21. no disrespect to you ACE but I bet them friends of yours tell some great fishing tales as well We have a 2004 Powerwagon shop truck. I have never seen such a pig on gas( and everyone hates that truck). Those early Hemis were notoriously hard on fuel from everything I have heard and witnessed. 14 mpg max with US gallon? and I think that is generous

  22. Greed is the motivation. The same thing that causes people to swindle stockholders in a corporation among other things. Most of these guys are not hurting without the scams and schemes.

  23. ...could it be the brain gets 'rusty '...from the salt laden air...and corrodes marginally....but retains enough cells..for the slow witted among us, to realise the ongoing virtues of the unemployment benefit........this observation after seeing the hordes of ''surfers'' colonising beach's here and in Western Australia...??

  24. Find where the day workers collect at and go by and hire some. I can remove them from the ground using that technique.

  25. I would recommend replacing shaft seal while out on bench. Cap all openings except inlet, remove dust seal and snap ring. Apply a bit of air pressure on inlet port, it will "pop" seal up out of bore. Install new seal, making sure you don't "roll" outer lip. Once seal is started in, install retainer and push seal down until snap ring fits back in groove. Install new dust seal and your all set.

  26. I understand that it doesn't mean they farm straw. That was kinda tongue in cheek. I was thinking like a straw gun buyer. One person buys it for another. Something like you have farms in the name of various family members and even employees. A neighbor went bankrupt in the 80s like so many. He immediately resumed farming under his brothers name. His brother was a nice guy and a good tractor driver but had no capacity to run a farm. It was obvious what was going on. Thx-Ace

  28. Big deal made about this and rightfully so. If the fraud in the unemployment/welfare system was investigated the figures would be staggering, media wont report on that though🤫. And no this isnt meant to be political, just factual.

  37. Well I eventually got the rad back from the repair shop and got the rest of the crawler together . I ran it hard all summer back filled and packed a 300’ long 8’ deep trench pushed in a new driveway cleared brush and harrowed and seeded a couple new lawns . The crawler worked great as I ran it through it paces . The weather is already starting to change here so will get the TD5 back in the shop soon and continue with repairs . Here’s my latest YouTube video check it out if ur interested

  41. I had a 98 Dodge Ram 2500, 5.9 gas, 4x4, with auto and 4:10 gears for 10 years. It got between 11 and 15 mpg depending on what I did with it. I wish I still had it instead of the 02 2500 Silverado I had to replace it with after the accident. It has a 6.0 gas that gets 6mpg pulling the same trailer the Dodge did at 11.
