RE: Canada/US Border still shut...

It's 2 Model T roadster bodies. They won't qualify as essential nor would the travel to get them. As far as shipping I have other things bought in Mt. & N.D. and will do just one trip. My trailer for hauling these things has 29" of bed space

RE: Canada/US Border still shut...

I have an item bought and paid for in Feb in Saskatchewan. I was supposed to pick it up 2 wks ago. But because of the closing I'm in limbo as too when that can happen

RE: Frost free hydrant for potable water

Lynnmor, sounds as though someone put a short one in. They make them as long as 9 ft. If you end up later digging it out I'd certainly think about a taller one

I think you're referring to the NSBU switch

RE: Frost free hydrant for potable water

A tip for keeping the drain hole open. First use a street L on the drain hole and a short nipple pointed down. Then use a piece of 4 or 5" PVC pipe, cut a slot the width of the supply line so that if fits over it then add a reducer to the PVC to get it to the diameter of the upright faucet line, seal it to that line with plumbers rope or something similar and you won't get any dirt or stone clogging the drain hole

RE: Are Travel Trailers selling at all right now?

Not a TT but a 5er. Last fall we bought a newer unit and a week ago we sold the older one which I'd only had 2 yrs. Sold price was only 7% less than I paid. It all depends on price, condition and buyers desire

RE: Rewiring a landscape trailer

Don't use the Scotch Locks. They are good at cutting the wire and you end up having to do it all over again. Solder and shrink wrap. You could also use a waterproof junction box. This would be a bit more that you need but gives you an idea of what I'm referring too.!49445!US!-1

RE: Lewiston to Lolo pass highway 12 road questions

As someone already mentioned, downshift when descending rather than using brakes when possible. We just did that complete route in late June. It's beautiful area one not to hurry through. We found a nice and certainly inexpensive campground. It's the Pink House Recreation area 38 miles east of Lewiston right on the Clearwater River. It's $9 a night w/full hookups for seniors and a 15 day maximum stay.

RE: Full-time and don't/didn't like it?

Golf..... 'Cow Pasture Pool' That reminds me of my Dad. He always called it that. Were he still with us he'd be 111 this year but has been gone since 81

RE: Spearfish, SD

While in Spearfish drive Spearfish Canyon. I don't know if markers would still be there but much of Dances With Wolfs was filmed in the canyon and the site was marked years ago. Back in the late 90's Costner had a lodge/bar nearby

RE: Found my replacement engine!

Similar situation with my Suburban Looked at that GM 502 crate engine and decided to rebuild the 7.4L Passing CA smog a must and no one have an acceptable answer on the 502 So my 7.4L is looking to have a 280 cam, roller rockers, 9.x compression, worked head, marched injectors, etc to be a bit under 500 ft/lbs around 2-2.5 KRPMs, etc Built 4L80E rated 1KHP Gearvenders with the splitter option, 0.5 OD, which will turn the 4 speed into an 8 speed 5.38 diffs, but having a tough time finding it for the front That will give a lower 1st and higher OD Don't know if the Xfrcase will need beefing up 1996 K3500 Sub and fits/suits me Either LT255/85R16 or LT285/75R16 on current 10" wide alloys. Not going to lift...maybe a torsion bar crank Still deciding... Are you building this for towing? If so aren't you getting a bit high on the cam for down low grunt? You do realize that towing in OD isn't recommended even by Gear Vendor. Something you might think about is using factory style rockers. Why? Because if you are running some long distances how available do you think a replacement roller rocker is going to be in Timbuktu. That was advice I received from a very well know engine builder when I built a 454 stroker for an 85 GMC CC dually I was towing with then. It was 489", 4 spd, Gear Vendor, 4.56 geared had plenty of power but could really suck the gas. Never got above 11 mpg empty and made it into the 5's loaded in the mountains in the west. That cinched it for me buying my first diesel

RE: 5th wheel hitch lift

Way to heavy to lift and drag then lift and push. It was on a low cart with wheels, I rolled it next to the trailer, jacked it up and blocked it a few inches at a time. I used some 2x6 at the top to get it even with the trailer bed then I put some lengths of 1/2" pipe under it allowing me to roll it onto the trailer

RE: 5th wheel hitch lift

No the trailer at the fenders is wider than the sleeper.

RE: 5th wheel hitch lift

Ok for you guys who feel the need to forgo lifts or such. Here's an example of working smart. In this picture is a 63" semi sleeper on my car hauler. I put it on there by myself no one around and no lift, hoist or fork lift involved. So how do you think I did it?
