Ford dealer replaced the part, was the linkage between the pitman arm and the left steering knuckle. Did not help the original problem. Try another place on down the road.



DW is vacillating ( Wayne, that means she can't make up her mind ) about the outer banks. Going to TN in a week to pick up meds, then hopefully the OBX.

We live about five miles from Stuart's Draft. Which campground are you at?

OBX sounds real good right now, setting up in the home driveway. Sweat runneth freely as do the AC runoffs. Ah, IL in August.!

Mohmmms for the needed part(s). Can't carry spares for everything, can we?!
WV yesterday was in the 90's. Felt like I was back in TN

Hoping the sea breeze tames the 80's on the OBX.

As long as it's not a Southwest US style Gale Storm (Mawgie) all is well

Home at last!
Plus water leak at S&B located and fixed and we're able to stay inside!

For those that don't know, my son called me during one of the campfires at the gC telling me the water company called him concerning a possible leak at my S&B. He was out of town at the time and ask them to shut the water off and he would check into it since we were out of town. No sign of water inside and several days of rain prevented locating any leak outside, till today. When I drove in my son had located the leak, dug down to the pipe and waiting on me to get there before dismantling. Quick parking job done on the Discovery, change into some wxxk clothes, trip to Home Depot and a little wallering in the mud and we're back in business!

When covered in mud trying to get things fixed before dark taking time to take pictures didn't come to mind. Mary was so worried about getting thinks fixed she retreated inside to hold the newest grand baby!

By the way Dave, what a great three weeks we had together. I know we told y'all that but now it's in print! See you later EH!

Gee... they let you fix your own water pipes in Arkansas? Don't you have codes and such a master plumber has to preside over?

Not much code to it. Dig hole, see water spraying out of broken pipe, cut broken pipe out and replace! I'm so lucky it was outside and not flooding the house.

Didn't your house spring a leak once before...

It's the South, sort of like the difference between NYC and upstate NY. In upstate NY, heck, you can build, do pretty much whatever you want, it's your land. Got a bunch of stuff you don't need anymore, pile it up and light it afire. Try that in NYC

Same with building codes, pretty much anything goes upstate, just like those Arkie's!

In all seriousness, I think for Tim it's on "his" side of the water supply. E.g., it's past the shut-off valve the water company would be considered "owning". I wouldn't think there are regulations on who can plumb that side.
