RE: Over loaded pickup

The biggest problem I see is he has no weight left on the front axle.

Are you using well water?

RE: Dodge 1500b van

Don't let them scare you off with transmission talk. 727 automatic is as good a transmission as they come. I would be more worried about the floor in a B series van of that vintage.

RE: Water pump check valve.

Ok. So I looked in the cabinet last night and it is a 2088. Do these not come apart or are there just no service parts?

RE: Water pump check valve.

Thanks Old Biscuit. Looks like I'll be digging in soon. While I'm in there I had an idea. I recently replaced my water tank drain with a 3/4 one. I was thinking about using the 1/2 pipe and valve to make a by- pass of the pump to fill my tank from city water. Any reason that would be a bad idea?

RE: 72 ounce steak and potato and salad

my unsolicited advice...don't do it. This seems like a good idea. But if you insist, you need to stretch your stomach. Like having Christmas or Thanksgiving dinner frequently. Fasting more than a couple days would be counterproductive. I am not an expert, just 54 years old.

RE: Trailer brake advice

Last year I accidentally towed my trailer 230 km without the umbilical plugged in.

Water pump check valve.

Hi all. After listening to my water pump burp at long intervals for several seasons, it has begun to do so about every 15 minutes or so. I have no idea what model of pump I have but is it generally possible to clean or service the check valve. I do not have a leak.

RE: Need tires on my Ram Tow Vehicle.

Hankook makes an LT 10 ply in the stock size. I'm waiting for a set to come in for my 11 Ram 1500.

RE: Hyway 17. Through Ontario.

Highway 17 is the TCH and is highly developed and well maintained option to the 400 series roads.

RE: trailer bearings leak - castle nut stuck (why?)

The nut will cut off the cotter pin if you put a socket to it. It will be significantly easier to deal with what's left of the cotter pin with everything out of the way.

RE: Hemi Camshaft Failure Mystery Explained

I guess the only thing to do is let er rip... just as the engineers designed it.

RE: first time towing

Don't fight the trailer. It will move around ( I call it squirm ) and if you move the steering wheel for every little motion you'll be "white knuckle" all the way. As mentioned your hitch set up is more important than anything else in determining whether you have a pleasant or hair raising experience.

RE: PSI of LT tire after upgrading from P rated tire

The P tires called for 35. When I switched to LT I still used 35. I actually aired up for towing but eventually concluded that the LTs did just fine and rode and wore well at 35.

RE: Transmission lines

The lines are sealed with O rings and kept in place with snap rings. The plastic "cap" must be in place to prevent separation. For some reason lines like to rust under the support brackets. The quality seems to vary as some like to go on forever while others not so much. Be surprised if they gave out before 150000 km.

RE: S&B electrical question

Ok then. If by some miracle the switch leg is 14-3 you can easily double up the switch , possibly even with a single device. The more likely thing is that the leg is 14-2 which means you'll need a second leg or replace it with 14-3. That should be relatively simple being a screen porch and exposed wiring.

RE: S&B electrical question

Most ceiling fans have a separate wire for the fan motor. This also means that on the fan there should be a separate pull chain control for the fan motor, which how they are intended to be operated. You will need to take the fan down and wire the fan motor directly to the power feed ( black and white on the fan ) and wire the light to the switch leg ( often a blue wire on the fan ). This will also give a longer and quieter fan life since it can only be started on high as intended.

RE: What can I use to get water out of a gas tank

We soldered with the tank full of water. A small bubble of space at the top won't let the water absorb all the heat or allow enough gasses to collect to be dangerous. The only thing special I recall doing was adding a few bottles of gas line antifreeze to absorb any residual water.
