Dang Terry, brrrr!

We greened up a lot yesterday after some rain. Not full yet but 75% at least. It is coming your way!

I hope it is something simple. There were/are a lot of those on the road. They are very reliable. Good luck at the dealers!

Lloyd, Thanks, never had alot of faith in most dealers, this one has been good in the past. I didn't have alot of choices when we bought this it was a very good deal, hope it continues to be . My first choice would have been a mechanical engine, then it would be simple turns here and there a bigger turbo and presto more HP and torque.

Hey Terry, I understand.

I agree, there were times when this all was much easier. But, the world moves on. Overall, this stuff works really well. Tough at times to fix, but when it is working pretty cool stuff.

Good luck at the dealers!

Second on what Lloyd said.

I can recall an 73 International 3/4 ton I had. I could sit on the fender with my feet on the frame to change spark plugs in the 392. Now the 450 I cannot see the frame!!

I think overall vehicles are more dependable now days. But when they go bad they can be really costly to fix? Not sure that is necessarily true as when I was fixing the truck myself I was not making a lot of money so I guess it is all relative.

Lloyd, Gordon, I do like the newer vehicles, having come from a long generation of auto mechanics, I remember when you couldn't get 50,000 miles on a car without doing some major work, computer systems and advancement in oils and fuel have made a vehicle last darn near forever, my old service truck has almost 300,000 on it and it still starts and runs very well and uses no oil, now the body is ready to fall off due to our great northeast winters and salt but....... Just got back from the dealer, as I suspected everyone I knew there has retired or moved on. But I have to say they were very helpful, hooked me up with a Mechanic that had worked on those trucks, gave me tons of info, even dug thru his pile of manuals and found me an electrical schematic, (VERY HELPFUL THERE), also told me some tips (off the record) that if I wanted to up the HP to find a truck donor and get ALL the computers, as long as the truck has the same equipment it will work, (as in Trans ect), now the computer will not have my Vin # but I don't care as I'm the owner and lets face it, it's an old truck. So now I have more work to do checks grounds and power, continuity of wiring to eliminate that, and say the VPM might be bad, if so the hunt will be on for the set of high horse computers

Good Afternoon, We have had lots of damage in the area, (not here) alot of people without power, last afternoon, we had a "micro burst" wind storm come thru, 80 to 90 mph winds so lots of trees down in some areas, crazy weather, its going to be cold for the next 7 to 10 days. Also had some other bad news a very good friend and fellow biker passed away from liver disease, he was a hard worker and hard partier, it finally caught him. Would do anything for someone, friend or stranger.

Terry,

Sorry for your loss.

As we get older, this is going to happen more often to all of us. It doesn't make it any easier. But, none of us are immortal.

I'm determined to not take any day for granted, set my goals, enjoy my family, and continue forward. Then, the Good Lord can handle the rest.

Thanks everyone, I've never been much for words in these situations, seen way to much of it while in the Corps. I always look at the good times.
