RE: Dual pane windows.....add weight? Reduced CCC?

Dual pane windows are pretty much standard around here. Except for more basic 5er's, dealers don't stock units with single panes anymore. In the great north wet, wouldn't have anything but dual panes.

RE: SRW traction versus a DRW

Nothing worse in snow than a 2wd dually.

RE: Trim those trees.. please!!

I bought one of these in Japan years ago but I see they are now available here. Gomboy Very high quality and cut incredibly well. I prefer to ask management to do any trimming first.

RE: Any "non-mechanic" pulled a dash in older Dodge?

A gauge does give more information but the light tells you when the pressure drops below a certain value whether it is under load or not. How is that useless?

RE: The things you find in cemeteries

I just thought it poignant that this young man earned the highest award given for bravery in the British Empire clearing out German machine gun nests in WWI and survived the war, then three years later is shot down in the street while serving as a police officer in his adopted country.

RE: Big 3 Petition EPA for CAFE Relief

Diesel, if I'm so out of it, why have none of the predictions come to pass? We've been told we would be under a block of ice in twenty years and told multiple times the planet would be uninhabitable in just a few years because of excessive heat. When it doesn't happen the government funded "scientists" simply announce a later date. How do you explain a growing ice pack in the Antarctic? Maybe you're the one that needs to do some fact checking. Here ya go. NASA

RE: Any "non-mechanic" pulled a dash in older Dodge?

Don't know about the FASS system but my experience with stock lift pumps is that they don't just fail, they degrade. The failures all started with the light flickering a couple of times then everything would be fine. The flickering would become more frequent over the period of a few weeks or a thousand miles or so before the the light would remain on. After my first failure which was replaced on warranty I installed a Vulcan Kit which relocates the pump to the frame. I also installed a shutoff just upstream of the pump. With the second failure, we were travelling across Canada and the light first flickered a few times between Montreal and Quebec City. I picked up a new pump in Sydney Nova Scotia and by the time we got to Newfoundland it was getting pretty bad so I changed the pump in a campsite at Terra Nova National Park. Dead easy to change with the shutoff and pump mounted on the frame. Shut the fuel off, crack the lines and let the fuel drain into a clean old ice cream bucket, remove the lines and three nuts holding the pump in place, bolt the new pump on, connect the lines, turn the fuel on, prime the system, pour the drained fuel back into the tank and done. No mess no fuss. Took me about a half hour.

RE: Any "non-mechanic" pulled a dash in older Dodge?

I had a three gauge pillar setup in my 01. Installed a BD low pressure light In the pillar taking power off one of the gauges. Dead easy to install and it warned me about two pumps when they were staring to go out. The one for 2nd gen Dodge comes on when lift pump pressure drops below 7 psi if I remember correctly.

I think we are getting the result whether we desire it or not.

The things you find in cemeteries

We were visiting my mother in law's gravesite today and while looking for another of her uncle's stone, I came across this. Robert MacBeath VC History has always been one of my main interests and my son is a police officer. I am almost ashamed to say that I don't remember ever hearing of this man or if I had, that he was also a VC recipient.

RE: Big 3 Petition EPA for CAFE Relief

I'm one of those older folks. I think government has to provide some kind of direction for the future because the market won't. We see it all the time. When fuel prices go down, sales of gas guzzlers go up and fuel efficient vehicles go down. When fuel prices go up, the opposite happens and in both cases manufacturers supply what the customer is buying. Our air and water is cleaner than 50 years ago in spite of a 50% increase in population Whether you like how they have done it or not, the EPA has to get a lot of the credit for that.

RE: Canadians driving in USA

I think you need to change that to "doesn't mean that Americans can drive worth a ...." :p :) Stats: Fatalities per 100,000 motor vehicles. Canada: 9.5 US: 12.9 Stats: Fatalities per 100,000 inhabitants per year. Canada: 6 US: 10.6 since your roads are passable for only 6 months a year, your canadian numbers should be doubled for comparison. bumpy I live outside of Vancouver and it hasn't snowed here in a couple of years. A lot of convertibles driving around with their tops down 12 months of the year. Only if they have drain holes for all the rain in the winter.lol. Pretty much but you do see them out occasionally during the winter.

RE: Fiat and Cummins in court

If Cummins sets the specs, it doesn't matter who makes them as long as they are made to that spec.

RE: Coquihalla Highway (Highway 5) in late May

You will probably be good but the Coq is the highest pass from the interior and the southern half has fairly high annual precipitation. It a very good highway and actually has the highest speed limit in the Province, 120 KPH or 75 MPH. Just watch the weather and if it is bad on the Coq you can always take HWY 1 down the Thompson and Fraser Canyon. Longer but more interesting IMO. BC Highway Cams

RE: Big 3 Petition EPA for CAFE Relief

Emission regulations have been a good thing, there are twice as many registered vehicles on North American roads than in 1975 but air quality in US and Canadian cities is much better. I park my 2011 CTD in the garage and I can close the door right away. I park my 66 Chrysler 300 in the garage and the fumes are so bad I have to leave the door open for a good 15 minutes to air the place out. The question now is how much better do they really need to get. CAFE standards have to be an honest, realistic collaboration between government and industry taking into account what is possible with existing technology. Vehicles that are more fuel efficient are a good thing.

RE: 2016 dodge 2500 diesel

Any truck sold in cold country should come with the cord :Ss They do in Canada, even in Vancouver where 10 degrees below freezing is really cold.

RE: Passport book vs Passport card

When we are just going a short distance across the border we just use Nexus. If we are going any distance, we always take passports as well.

RE: sunnybrook

There should be a placard posted somewhere with the serial number, weights and tank capacities. Usually inside a cabinet, sometimes on the back of one of the cabinet doors.
