      Well that sucks. That symptom was the same as my JE Reel. I will be disappointed if they started using the same junk CV I got stuck with.

      smritte replied to the thread brake pad question.
      An old "anti squeak" trick was double up the shims putting brake grease between the layers. Guys at the shop would talk about it years ago. I never had an issue so I never tried it.

      I was forwarded the map of the Mojave Road closures last week and decided to go look at the damage. The road was considered closed until last Thursday. My route brought me in on Cima road turning onto Kelso and picking up the Mojave Road about...

      I seem to have the same issues. I keep seeing new things and then need the tools to build them.

      I seem to have two alternates. 1. Laughlan is open. That's four hours out of my way plus the drive across to the other side making it an eight hour drive. 2. Rail track service road near stateline. Thats almost two hours out of my way and close...

      Well crap. I was heading up there this weekend but my whole end of the route is closed. Thank you for this. I was heading out Friday night and it would have sucked to get a road closed.

      I took one of the above mentioned electric pumps, modified it so the hose came out the back and installed a magnet under it. I can mount it on my can rack or sit it on my table.

      I never realized how much rear side to side movement I had until I rebushed the front. Replaced rear trailing arm and panhard bushings, delta panhard correction (lifted 3.5 inch) and now it drives great on the highway again.

      Ordered a mirror fix. Your site askes for a coupon code, when do I get coupons? You need to stop making things I need

      Looking at their site, they don't come out and say it but, in order to get the numbers they claim it would be a hairpin wound alternator. I have one (not from them) in a Tundra case. I get 105amp at idle and 228 amp @ 2800 rpm. This is what I...

      No problem. It normally takes a couple of weeks for me to get a roster going. Right now I have three possible, plus you. I post early because some people need notice to put in for vacation time.

      smritte replied to the thread Need ideas for switching.
      In other project's, I've used power transistors to control more current than I need here. I want to get away from mechanical relays. There's a bunch of solid state control boards out there (probably copied SPod) but all I find use their touch...

      smritte replied to the thread Need ideas for switching.
      I was looking for a solid state relay but that is the ticket for a diffrent project I'm working. The micro/mini relays, even though they have a high rating, don't have the longevity I need and I want to start loosing my row of larger relays...

      Its time for my annual Mojave road run. Vehicle limit is 8. I will Be leaving From Laughlin on Saturday November 26. When I exit depends on the group. I have the whole week off and can stay until December 1 just screwing around seeing the...

      What I need is a solid state controller. I want to get away from traditional mechanical relays. This is going to be mostly for light controlling. Right now I run a Bussmann fuse/relay panel and I've out grown it. I like the SPod but there is no...

      Looking at your printout, your rear diff is pointed to the passenger side / / That will move the front to the driver side, think forklift turning. Rear goes right, front goes left. Almost like your passenger arms are shorter then your...

      Something that's easy to check considering you have custom axles and it was wheeled hard. Measure from the back edge of the front rim to the front edge of the rear rim. Measure from the center. 0----0 Compare both sides. Your measuring the...

      smritte replied to the thread 96 FJ80 EGR temp sensor.
      I'm not going to bother reading anything you post from here on out. Your comment was not only unproductive but rude. Now your butt hurt because I called you out on it. I don't "NEED" to read the discontinued thread. I know how to look up parts...

      smritte replied to the thread 96 FJ80 EGR temp sensor.
      Thank you for the reply Your absolutely correct. I've been doing drivability professionally since 1980 and I haven't seen one yet. Of course, mine is going to be the first. The resistance is off a bit and has been getting further out as time...

      My temp sensor has been acting up every once in a while. The motor and almost everything on it has been updated or replaced (PM mostly) with the exception of the temp sensor and a few other parts. I occasionally get an EGR code and traced back...
