Not trying to P on anyone. Just trying to chatter box since I haven't really been around much. I get jumped, something isn't right. I'm open, nothing to hide or PM about. My opinion has been typed.
Tranny temps are way down, with the new cooler. New power steering pump went in and I can turn without having to hang on the steering wheel and no more exhaust back pressure sensor trouble light. **Found out the original tranny cooler was plugged, which caused little flow making my temps fly high.**
Towed my boat to the lake. Did some skiing and tubing, more skiing, and more skiing and now, I feel really good. Just sore muscles. Tranny temps didn't break 155F with boat in tow. Wow what a difference.
I'm sure glad I don't have an automatic behind my Diesel. I don't have to worry about tranny temps near as much. As a matter of fact, I don't have a tranny temp guage. But, I monitor engine temp, Boost, Pre and Post turbo EGT. Mid way through every long road trip, I look at the bugs that have gotten past the grill, (the windshield mess is usually a good indicator that it's time to look at the grill area), to be sure there's sufficient air flow for the radiator. I wish I could find a good screen for our Super Duty grills to keep all that road crap out.
Just a note to say I found the new tread and will be on when I can.
Love ya all Friends Tricky
No phone in the cabin I am staying at. If ya want to call use 907 846 5214 And ask her when a good time would be for you to call. and I will be here waiting for the phone to ring. Right now we are trying to be just friend . As she said that she has no love or feelings for me.
Yeah, something like that... I dunno, house window screen?
A screen that I can clip or snap on in front of the grill to keep the bugs out on those long road trips. Maybe something that's double duty as a bug screen in the summer, and a grill cover in the winter. Like what the truckers have. Something durable enough for the wand at the car wash.
I've seen these things for 90's model Ford trucks, but nuttin for the 99-Newer SuperDuty's.
I've got a sewing machine down in the basement. Maybe I just need to make my own.

Just a quick hello to all. This is going to be a very hectic month. Boating Classes for the Coast Guard Auxillary start, Three day Clamper G2g on Whidbey, then parents from Cali and Aunt from Carolina show up for a week.
