    Mouse in my heater/AC fan?

    No, I have a box on it. I wanted to put a flatbed on it, but my wife doesn't like the look. I just repainted my truck last year, it was silver and emerald green. But, the clearcoat failed and she was peeling bad. Went with a premixed paint (Kirker), it's now Mack Green. Not as dark green as I had wanted, but it's way better than before. Picture in the link below. https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BykxqnYc-znfQ1pxU2tIZG5abWF0cm9CZHZfcFlRR2NkNFJB Bob The mice packed the headliner of my Galaxie until the seam split. Haven't had time to put a new one in, but I'm thinking of selling it. Bob

    I knew you were in New Meadow, go through about once a year. My son lives in Boise and we make it down there occasionally. Would love to live down in your area, but it will be back to MT after I retire in about four years. Bob
  4. I'm going to install a drain plug in the transmission pan of my truck. I'm going to use the drain plug for my temp gauge also. Where in the pan is the best place to put it so it doesn't interfere with anything. Bob

    Colfax is still pretty much the grain center. Though just about everything goes to the river and gets loaded on barges. During the peak of harvest we get 20 - 25 semi's a minute by our place. Colfax always hires new cops right out of the academy and their gungho, so yes they'll get you for anything over. Colton and Uniontown share a cop.

    Mouse in my heater/AC fan?

    I live in the middle of wheat country in WA, the Palouse. When you drive at night during the summer the highways are just crawling with them. I finally got some more cats and most mornings there's up to six dead mice laying by my front door. I have six PVC T's that I fill with strychnine oats in my barn and I still have a continual problem. Bob

    Greed, Thanks for the info. I'll be plugging those holes as soon as it cools off a little. I have a 62 Ford Galaxie that I have to leave the windows and truck open so that cats can get in and keep the mice out. Bob
  9. Terrible year for mice in my area, my truck is the only one of my vehicle that have never had any in. Till this year, had one get in the fan and get decapitated by the fan. Had to pull the blower out and remove it. Truck still smelled like mice the other day, removed the blower again to make sure I had gotten it all out. Found the head of one in there, cleaned everything up and it's better this morning, I must have gotten everything out. Has anyone else had a problem with them and where do they get in. Bob
  10. Dogsled, Upgrade to the Chevy 1 ton cylinders like Ed said. On my 96 they made a big difference. Bob

    Anyone recovered their visors?

    tylertrebilcock, I checked Joann fabric and they only have 54 inch wide headliner. My 96 measures closer to 56 inches. Did you stretch yours a littler or is your headliner narrower than mine? I may just put a seam across the headliner just above the seats. Anything is better than what I have now. Bob

    Anyone recovered their visors?

    I've seen it on Joann's website and it's listed as headliner material. That's probably where I'll get mine. tylertrebilcock, What adhesive did you use and how is it holding up. Bob

    Anyone recovered their visors?

    I checked them out a little over the 4th of July and the material wraps around the visor and then goes between the plastic inner core. I'm hoping that they just snap together, but it probably isn't that easy. Bob

    How to test fan clutch?

    Checked out my fan clutch tonight. No play or any sign of leakage. Started the truck and run it up to 2K rpm for about 5 minutes, got out and stuck a rolled up magazine into the fan. It stopped right away and free wheeled. We're headed out camping with our fifth wheel on Friday so I'll see if I can hear it coming on. Bob

    How to test fan clutch?

    I check for any play in it this evening. I'm wondering if it's always engaged and that's why I don't ever hear it come on like I have in the past. Bob
