I've had a turbo apart, but not the VGT kind. Really quite simple.

Jerome is on the agenda, and probably the Verde Vally rail ride as well, and I'm quite sure we will have to be checking out some of the taste tests at the wineries. I hope we will have enough time and enough energy to get it all done.

Now where did I put that beverage ?

Cheers !!!

MartySQ - good to hear from you. I had followed your adventures with the Honey and we PM'd I believe several months ago as one of your threads had Honey sitting in a Ford lot needing a new engine as I recall! Seems you said she was honey of a Honey and back immune road.

What I don't recall is you declaring yourself to be an RVM along with this sage group of mutants. I know you are qualified! All that is required is to tell us a thing or two your Honey doesn't have and you don't miss - and of course the philosophy that the journey is the destination!

You can have a pass if ya want it - because I have followed your journey - but that deprives the other mutants of getting to know a little about you and the Honey! A few words please and you will be RVM 45! Or - there is the possibility of an admin error on my part. The current list of mutants in good standing are:

The reason you saw so many chickens in the old west towns wasnt because of careless owners, it was becasue they provided rattler control. Now I dont know how true this is but, it is said that a chicken can peck a rattler faster than a rattler can strike.

I just wanted to throw this out incase someone was interested in getting live rattler control.

Cheers !!!
Reading backwards to catch up... came across this...^^

Turkeys will actually escort a rattler out of their territory... they know where every rattler is in their environment. So it doesn't surprise me about chickens, but I bet the chickens were used to scare up the rattlers so the folks would know where they were so they could shoot them.

Always trust those chickens.

I know you guys like pictures, so I'm taking my chance that you will like these dirty ones.

Nice place to go when it's 110+ In Phx.



This is one place you don't want your brakes to fail on the way down. Even with them locked up, you still slide down the hill and those trees don't move. One weekend, a guy came down it with snow skis. Didn't fall down till the very bottom.



~900 lb hill shooter. The lower frame rails needed a re-paint after every trip.



2.2L making 25 lbs boost on a custom blend of 100LL gas. Guestimated HP - 350. It pulled the front wheels off the ground when I shifted into 4th gear going up Jeep Hill.



Stinky... pulling 33' of Skyline Nomad.

Moonrover - thanks for the mechanics update. Tried to PM you but it didn't work. Too much techie stuff for the RVMdom methinks.

Just one last clarification. They didn't suddenly pronounce a failed turbo. With my State Inspection and service the gave me the sheet of codes. Since I was leaving it for them to fix the headlight - I told the service desk I wanted to know the why there were so many codes and to look into it. I think Inactive Code means not present at the time - which made sense as it was sitting in the shop - so they bench tested and inspected at my request. So I guess like Dunner says - it may have been operating but not fully functioning. Fortunately it didn't break and leave me on the highway. I imagine the GS ESP would have seen those codes and claimed I ignored a problem and denied the claim. Did you mechanic say anything about all the VGT Codes I listed?
Thanks again!

Marty - if ya have some time - check out the first two or three posts in the thread and you'll see how the RVM curiosity all began. No dues - no other requirements than those I listed above. We would be more than glad to have you as RVM45!
It's good to have many snake savvy RVMs in the group.

Sorry, I did not take the iPad with me when I picked up the bus today.

As for the PM feature here not working, I've not tried it, but will give it a shot from my end.

{Edit} ... The PM problem is on my end ... have to diddle with the preferences to allow PMs. For that I need to use the full website. There appears to be no way to do it from the iPad app.

They can't test for a trouble code if it's not there at the time. They have to catch it when it's throwing the code.

I drove (Stinky) my `97 Ram 2500, with 12K 5er attached, 25 miles home when one of my boost hoses blew off. There was no safe place to pull off.

Hey - Dave!! They do love us back! I put having the radiator and CAC pulled and cleaned at 5 years in the care, love and feeding category. Did not see it on any list - but know the rear radiator models can get messy.

Little things. This has always been one of the RVM tenants - take care of what you have!

Till my next installment, all of you take care and remember to the dirty side down.

Now where did I put that beverage ?

Cheers !!!
Heya, Jeff! I believe it is SylviaCub who does that amazing leather work. I would not come near her level of craftsmanship!!! Bet she'd be pleased with a shout-out and a commission offer.

Hope you are enjoying the Red Rock area. We loved it when we were there a few years back. The Oak Canyon drive up toward Cottonwood & Jerome is a lovely road. We used a motel along there as our base camp for exploring. (No RV along for that trip.)

And while I'm here, y'all, this is from Sunny China buffet where we ate yesterday. Eat your hearts out!
