    Whilst out pulling parts for Brent off my 1.5 ton, I decided to pull the heater.  Originally thought it was a Truck Master, now not so sure.  Mounted HORIZONTALLY and no badging,  altho could have fallen off years ago in his farming days.    Thoughts?

    I am with you PA, while stuck at home, I’m getting to my “wants” list.
    this week I finally installed a garage door opener to my chicken coops door. 😁
     
    Sounds a little loud in the video but, I think it was partly the sound bouncing back.....
    Found two openers on CL with remotes for “free” (now if the power doesn’t go out) we can lock them up at night and let them out without leaving the house. 
    I have officially become more lazy! Now if I can just figure a way to get the eggs to me without going down there 😉

    I hope all on the p15 are doing well and surviving the mess. I have to say that in large part our collective desire for things to cost less is coming home to roost in a very bad way.
     
    My wife, with 28 months to go until retirement, spent yesterday in her ICU taking care of a patient on Covid-19 isolation. She spent the entire day having to wear one N95 mask. She should have been in a bunny suit and had a PAPR to breath with. The watering down of the CDC recommendations is nothing but a give away to the Hospital-Industrial-Complex. It is intended to limit their legal liability to lawsuits when this is over from the families of Doctors and RN's that died because they did not have proper gear.
     
    We gave away our industrial capability and some Nurses and Doctors on the front lines are going to pay for that societal choice with their life.

    If it is just weeping I wouldn't worry too much about it. There will be other leaks....😯
    Probably the only good permanent fix would involve removing the pan and having the perimeter of the connection brazed.

    Well......I imagine y'all knew this post was coming.
     
    The 13th Annual Clements Tailgate BBQ has been downsized.......to dang near nothing.
    It will be attended by no more than a few that will toast our friends who couldn't, wouldn't or shouldn't be at the show.
    Its just one of the things that might be debated way past my attention span.....I will lift a drink to all those who wish they could be here.
    I will be available for conversation and discussion by any who need an ear or whatever. There isn't going to be a reschedule or post dated show.
    Lucky 13teen will be remembered for what it is.....a strange and unfortunate occurrence.
    As many of you know, I work in the medical field as well as the cattle fields......I've been experiencing the pandemic first hand.
    Its work, and it will /needs to be done. I'll do my part. I'll miss seeing those of you I see once a year, and hope we make up for it in 2021!

    Today the wife almost got into fights at the grocery store because people are shoving and pushing for the last of whatever, Cummins has told us to work from home till April 6th (for now).  Luckily we have TP!  
     
    I'll try to play on TODD while you all are enjoying the hospitality in CA.

    As others have said, 12 straight up gives the best view.  Also where I remember it as a kid and how it was when I tore down.

    As I recall, I have mine set with one spoke straight up (12:00 position), which puts the other 2 at 4:00 and 8:00. This gives me the best view of the speedo, and with my elbow in the open window I can hold the wheel at the 8:00 spoke. If you have one at 6:00, with the others at 10:00 and 2:00, you fill find that the 2:00 spoke can block the view to the speedo. 
    I would recommend sitting in the seat and try the wheel at different positions to see what works for you.

    Seems to me if that were the case it would have started as soon as the tach was installed. The tach has been installed since the first of the year. That being said, it's easy enough to pull the coil wire and see what happens. I'm leaning (no pun intended...) toward fuel delivery problem. What would cause it to suddenly act up? If the issue is the pump, could the diaphragm be the problem?
