RE: GM trucks outsell Ford first quarter !

Wow! I wonder who sold the most washing machines or dryers. Nope. None of it really matters.:B

RE: Emergency Travel - Texas to South Georgia?

A quick search turned up a tv channel in Georgia. Apparently the GA governor is signing a "Shelter in Place" Order which may impact campgrounds too. LINK Call ahead and ask. Those phone numbers are on the internet now.Shelter in place was signed today and goes into effect tomorrow. I have a mother in-law in a nursing home and we are not allowed to enter. Hospitals here only allow a couple of people in other than a patient and that is a end of life situation. Check the hospice center you are going to. Have a good trip and stay safe.

RE: anyone seen Jim . . AKA - NC Hauler

I last talked to Jim Dec 2016. We both had a bad year health wise and got to be very good friends here but never got to meet face to face. We had planned to get together but he passed before we could. Great guy and We will meet again some day. Miss talking to him a lot. RIP Jim.

RE: How do I delete my account?

Why would anyone want to hack an account here? Wonder what they think they can get.

RE: Is SHE GONNA BLOW!

Trade it! You had your mind made up before you ever posted this. I went thru 3 new junk Chevys before I stopped buying them in the 80's. May buy another one day, who knows. I know every manufacturer has a lemon once in a while.

RE: Found my replacement engine!

"If I were considering a radical swap like that I'd go for a built 12V B series Cummins, but that's just me." Lots of people do that conversion, "FUMMINS" I've yet to see one in the wild. As a matter of fact it's been many...many...years since I've seen a 12v. Maybe Texans aren’t as resourceful...lol. Plenty of guys re-purposing otherwise worthless Fords with 12Vs around here.I have seen one here and he was trying to sell it with no takers. I hear about a lot of them on this site but its the same folks posting it.

RE: Found my replacement engine!

Hope its better than the last GM 572 crate motor I bought. Put it in a 56 chevy and first time I started it it blew both head gaskets. Not torqued from factory and they would not even send me a gasket set. My problem they said.

RE: New Camper problems

You have a bad batteryX2. If it was a disconnect switch it would not work with jumpers. I would also check breakers because converter should power up the 12 volt stuff.

RE: Senior Citizens Speak Up

The plot thickens. The governor of California just issued an order that all Californians must stay home. What if you don't have a home? Or what if your home has wheels? Can you role over to a free state? If I lived in California and my home had wheels, I woulda been long gone before now. Mike As a Californian will tell you, if you are not paying taxes in the state -- and specially if your poor state is being subsidized by their tax money, you have no right to speak about them and it's NOYB!:B California got enough of my tax money, and I got nothing for it.. so yeah, it is my business. Mike You are from Georgia for chrissakes! You are getting $1.29 for every dollar you pay in federal tax. If you are complaining about taxes you are paying in California, don't visit. You only get California tax is if you go there and buy stuff. Californians and NYers don't have any choice but subsidize with their taxes your very poor state.Very poor state? Another uninformed person from Stupifornia!:S Your state can't even support itself let alone any others.

RE: Florida State Parks CLOSED

I simply can't grasp the concept behind the sudden urge for quality toilet time. I'm on several other forums and toilet paper steals the show. I thought toilet paper jokes would be popular by now. I have not seen any......yet. Here's one: There will be a baby boom 9 months from now. The first female child born will be named "Charmin" and the first boy child born will be named "Scotty" And that generation will be called the Coronials.;)And when they become teenagers they will be the Quaren-Teens!

RE: Is SHE GONNA BLOW!

I used to be extremely brand loyal; blind actually. I drank too much of the blue Kool Aid. :B I left Ford because I was let down by them selling me a truck with such a terrible engine and horrible resale value. At the time I was looking for an upgrade, some of the Ford 6.7L issues were surfacing and I simply refused to go through it again. I now have a Ram 3500, an Acura MDX, and a GMC Yukon and am very happy with them all, so to say I'm biased or brand loyal is incorrect.You are biased! Anti Ford!:B

RE: LOUD Transmission drone at 58-62MPH

The 500 mile thing is for the diffs. The owners manuals for both Dodge and GM say so. I don't know about Ford, haven't looked at their manual. When my buddy bought a new Kenworth, it said the same thing!Bingo!:B

RE: LOUD Transmission drone at 58-62MPH

Pinion gear in rear end if noise goes away when letting off gas. Sound will travel thru driveshaft. Been there. Really? Have you done anything to it?New ring gear and pinion. This is a common problem in truck rear ends if the gears were not set up correctly or do not wear in correctly when breaking in. Interesting, didn't know there were a break in procedure for the rear end. If From incorrect seating, sounds like it can be fixed by readjusting with shims? When you replaced the ring and pinion, did you kept the same gearing? Can You also throw us a link of where you purchased? Would like to do more research about this if there's any mechanical adverse effects left alone or ignored for x amount of miles IME, once a ring and pinion start whining, unfortunately, it's usually there to stay. The ring and pinion gears are the most highly loaded gear set in the drive train. There is no break in period, BUT, if they are initially set up improperly, they "wear in" very quickly and start to make noise. The noise (and the ring and pinion) may last a normal lifetime (just annoying really) or it may quickly get worse and self destruct. They question to answer is, . . . . . . . "Do you feel lucky?" Chum leeMost manufacturers tell you not to tow for the first 500 miles or so. Why do you think that is?

RE: LOUD Transmission drone at 58-62MPH

Any good parts store can get you a ring and pinion set. Getting the gears is not a issue. But very few shops are trained or equipped to set the clearance.Very true, Need a good dial indicator to correctly set back lash.

RE: Tims Ford SP to St. Louis, via Vogel SP

Vogel SP has both water and electric. No sewer, just a dump station. You should be able to fit in just about every rv site there. Word of caution: some of the COVID 19 patients will be under quarantine/housed in trailers in a GA St. Pk. Don't recall which one so call Vogel and find out if it's them.Hard Labor Creek park is being used for the virus and is in middle Ga. Vogel is in north Ga. Not even close.

RE: Snowbird parks and Coronavirus

The news media has done a great job blowing this up.
