New starter and fuel filter. (I bought a mean Green starter, but they sent me the wrong one. Called and left a message. I need to figure out what this starter belongs to).

New one weighs 80 lbs, so two are required to make it work. Installs in 30 minutes that way.

Today I was attempting to get to my evap canister above my spare tire to deal with a slow fuel fill issue. I used a trick I read on here using a 9/16 socket to lower it after discovering the key thing in the winch would not allow the flat end of my jack handle to turn it. Tire came down great. 5 min later I looked in the glove box and lo and behold, the key was sitting right there.

Not mine but used our shop 2012 F450 V10 to plow the other night. At 30k miles it's still on the factory Continental tires SUCK! Had to chain up for one driveway, which by the a crew cab f450 with 9' flatbed, overhead rack and crane is not the best driveway plow truck.

Took care of a small oil leak. Machined the front and rear rotors and installed some new pads to get rid of a shimmy while braking. And I ordered a trans temp gauge, EGT gauge and pod for it. Towing season is almost upon me...

I use a dedicated OLD non-Ford brand pickup for plowing. It sits all year w the plow on it. It has chains on all 4, has 4wd and has a big plate of concrete in the bed. Best plowtruck ever. And NOTHING will stop it. Sometimes it plows too good and digs into the dirt. Before I know it I have a wall of dirt in front of me.

My normal plow truck is a 91 F-250 ref cab long bed with Blizzak snow tires, fits great in the drives I do. A friend is borrowing my truck so I had to use our f450 from work, it typically plows our front parking lot and large rear lot, works great for that!

I'd never used chains before the other night, they worked well.

You guys and your plows!
Out here in Long Beach, (about 20 mins from Disneyland, or 1/2 way between the Dodgers and the Angels), I had to fire up the heater because it was down into the 40s.

Although, with our traffic, I sometimes wish I had a plow!

Not today, but over the long 3-day weekend, Installed ATS springs and Bilstein shocks on my plow truck.
I ordered the heavy duty version of x-code WITH an additional high arch for 1 extra inch of lift.
My plow put my plow mount 1.5-2 inches above the ground, truck had 4400 lb original springs.

Distances (inches) from center of hub to fender:
before - 22 driver 22.5 pass
after - 28 both sides

Put plow on, lifted up, 26.75" now!
Adding ballast to bed to improve traction, should bring it down a bit more.




The new springs clearly do NOT deflect in order to be 6 inches more lift than the originals



The 3-leaf HD version of X-codes from ATS



Bumper needs to go back on - once I re-locate the plow wires I found dangling behind it. This is why I prefer to do it myself....

Yesterday I replaced the brake master cylinder on my 5.4 SD. I was skeptical at first because it looked relatively new but the symptoms (losing pedal pressure etc.) pointed to it being bad. The kits I picked up for bleeding didn't have what I needed for the bench bleed. I ended up drilling holes for vinyl tubing in the threaded plastic caps that came with the new cylinder. It worked okay but unsure of how well it was bled I tried a method I found online to bleed while installed on the truck. I would've liked to have waited and got the right tool but I had to work that night. I ran an 8ft tube from the drivers side bleeder into the fluid res and supposedly this will bleed the master cylinder. How well, that I am not sure of but I did see a significant amount of air escape. Bled the remaining sides and called it. Brakes are back and pedal pressure feels great.
