RE: 2020 Ram 2500/3500: MotorTrend Truck of the Year

Ruh roh I had the same thought :)

RE: Getting Ready for First Tow with the EcoBoost!

The one drawback with surge brakes (“breaks” in forumspeak) on a van box trailer is when a sem eye blows by you in the hammer lane his bow wave pushes on the trailer which applies the brakes. This was a concern on one trip towing with our 85hp diesel back in the 20th century :) :)

RE: What is the purpose of low point drains?

Before pulling out of a campsite I open up my low point drains and let them drain as I drive home. I drove for a couple hours once, stopped to get fuel, and was amazed as to how much water started coming out the drains as I fueled up. That stop was a good angle to get more water out. I appreciate people doing this when I ride me motorbikes. There is always that first moment of “I hope that’s fresh water...” A taste test confirms the source. Anyways the low point drains on my camper are used for draining the water system.

RE: Postal code

Use the 3 digits of your postal code followed by two zeroes. Ignore the letters. This has worked for me. Brian Brian is correct! For instance if your postal code is M5H3T5, you would enter 53500 as your zip when requested. This works for me using Visa.

RE: Time to hang up the keys...(consignment ?)

I haven’t consigned at PPL Motorhomes in Texas (yet) but their communication with me was excellent.

RE: New Ford 7.3 V8

So the new 7.3 is a stand alone engine and not part of a series of engines all based on the same “block” size. So I’m going to call it a “Ford 7.3 flex fuel engine”.

RE: New Ford 7.3 V8

A Hall-Scott in-line six, overhead cam, 1000 cubic inches is a big block. Our Sea Scout ship, an ex USCG 38' picket boat originally had a 225 HP Hall-Scout I-6 Defender. It was replaced with a Chrysler Royal I-8, and while I was a member we installed a surplus 6-71 Graymarine(Detroit). I know from being around some Kenworth history that Hall-Scott 4 sumpin and “590” engines were available in trucks.

RE: New Ford 7.3 V8

I do not get this throw back to the good old days when we had mouse motors and rat motors and little blocks and big blocks. Personally i think that those terms have gone out of style with grannie's high button shoes. I think modern day motors are what their displacement is. :h I agree. It’s why I was wondering why it is being called a “big” block...

RE: New Ford 7.3 V8

So would a turbocharged 7.3 (maybe Eco isn’t quite accurate) be a sweet engine or what? Say 650 torques at 2500rpm 450hp at 3900rpm about 400 torques at 1600rpm in road gear on the freeway.

RE: 2020 Silverado 1500 Duramax and the Ike

So an in-line six makes for a pretty good Diesel engine arrangement. Who knew? Next thing Ford will be inventing “architecture” (for an engine not a building) with pushrods :)

New Ford 7.3 V8

I see people calling this a “big block” engine. Is it part of a series of engines of different displacements based on a common “big” block?

RE: Upgrade truck suspension

Four different campers on the older truck, current camper on both trucks - the only thing that consistently improved the ride from a “fore and aft” standpoint- overhead jiggle, vibration, hobby horse, porpoising and all the other names was hitching a trailer to the receiver hitch.

RE: 2020 Silverado 1500 Duramax and the Ike

I find these very entertaining. The real question is, when are we going to see the ford 7.3 big block go up the hill with a full load? I can’t wait! X2. We have a couple of them on order at work and I’m looking forward to trying them out. I don’t see any info on Ford.ca yet. Do dealer fleet sales have info now?

RE: Elon tease -- Tesla pick will look like military vehicle

This outfit shows fake videos of their booster rockets landing themselves. Now they are talking electric vehicles with useful range? This okboomer does has a question: how is enough AC electricity going to be generated to power the world motor vehicle fleet? Just told yah folks about not embarrassing yourselves. :o Those fake videos have already done 18 supply missions for NASA.:S:B What’s next Sam? Battery powered computer phones in our pockets? Anti lock brakes? Electric pickup trucks with payload and range? :) :)
