Re: Graves Mt 2020??

That would be just a little bit of a ride to get there for you Bucolic! About 3,000 miles worth!!! But you would definitely win the longest distance award.

Re: Beverly Hillbillies

Please tell me they aren't the Chinese specials on the tires? I have blown out more new Chinese tires than I have ever blown out worn old car tires on trailers. And we all know you should never use car tires on trailers, but I will use them before using new Chinese tires! 220 miles, 60lbs pressure. ...

Re: No fuel to the carburetor

Did you tighten the flat nut against the carb on the fitting? Is there a plastic or teflon washer on there? That needs to be snugged up. As long as the fitting is in there snug and does not wobble around you can snug up that nut pretty good to stop the leak. That is what it is for.

Re: No fuel to the carburetor

The filter has tapered pipe threads and it will split the inlet fitting if you put it in too far. It also hogs out the threads so that the correct filling will not hold tight. The correct fitting screws in hand tight and then you tighten the little flat nut with the teflon washer against the carb an...

Re: Beverly Hillbillies

If you live in an area where you have large swings in temperature and medium to high humidity the water is most likely from condensation. I have seen engines and transmission sitting on the ground get gallons of water in them just from condensation out of the air.

Re: Beverly Hillbillies

Something else to think about if you are using DOT 5 is that like TJ said, it is silicone and water will sink to the bottom of the lowest points. The bottom of the wheel cylinders. Now think about this for a moment, Where are the bleed screws? They are designed to let air out, so they are on TOP of ...

Re: What was mounted on the corner of the rear fenders?

That is going to be about impossible to repair without replacing a section of panel on both sides. The part that folds over has been ground completely through on one side and the both sides show a lot of rust under the panel. You cannot weld to rust. You are going to have to cut back to good metal a...

Would YOU want to be in there with an IED of normal strength going of within 50-75 yards of you? Not me! Any closer would be pretty much of a no brainer, quite literally :roll: :shock: .

Doesn't matter. All that matters is how well connected the company is with the congressman in that state.

Re: Yes....here we go again.....

Figures, The Colorado is not exactly a stellar vehicle to begin with. Of coarse I am sure the military is paying a few hundred grand for each one bare minimum. Todays warfare simply does not have a place for unarmored light vehicles. That thing, and all in it, would be vaporized in an IED explosion....

Re: Graves Mt 2020??

I just got my paperwork last week or Saturday. It is on. I don't know if I am going to make it or not, been a rough couple of years and I fell way behind on vehicle maintenance. The RV needs all new tires, exhaust and batteries. That is 6 tires, three batteries and headers and dual exhaust not to me...

Re: Beverly Hillbillies

Oh I LOVE that one! I have told this one several times, I went into the local Auto zone and asked for a distributor cap for a 454 big block Chevy HEI. They asked what vehicle it was in and I said a 76 CJ-7. Deer in the headlights look, I was informed that the CJ-7 did not have a 454 in it. I said I ...
