I'm usually a week off when I'm doing schedules for work. Likely would have been sitting in the lot wondering where everyone was. All this endless maintenance is making me cra cra.
Seat gears scheduled for the white cruiser tomorrow, need to check the pass side wheel bearing as well. The truck has a squeak at slow speed, kinda sounds like it's coming from the rear. More things to track down.
Got the pass seat out and disassembled ... can't find the replacement gears I've had for 6 months. Searched through all my parts twice for 90 mins. Over it, reordering and will get some seat covers to do at the same time. I hate losing things, I try to be very organized so that doesn't happen.
Got my Kricket belt tension check tool today. Belts on the cammo truck are ~45lbs, will try again to tighten them tomorrow, if chirping persists I will start replacing idler pulleys. I found 2 new AC pulleys today going through my parts ... nice.
Did manage to get the Pfran LED kit installed on the white truck, had a defective reverse light, so had to pirate the kit for the cammo truck of course. Nothing is ever easy it seems. Blew a fuse when the LED shorted and had to track it down.
@Crusha or anyone else with a parts truck ... I'm looking for a rear speaker grill and the housing for the front door light at the bottom, not just the lens, the whole housing.
Been doing a few things here and there on then truck, one is clocking the shocks so the upper arms don't hit the line to the reservoir and running then line under the brake line so they will not rub through. I need to clearance the shock tower a little for full stuff occurrences but it should be fine. Only reason this is a problem is because I'm cheap and just ordered the shock bodies, if I had ordered the ToyTec upper mounting plates too I amsure they would be in the position I need not to interfere.
Found the seat gears on the dining room table ... 2 days after ordering new gears. Got them installed yesterday on the white cruiser and seats are back in working order.
Ordered some new seat covers for this truck as well. My son opted for neoprene covers instead of the leather so I guess I will see how those work out. They are custom fit and supposedly 6-8 week lead time. Got tired of the steering pump groaning at me when the truck is warm so ordered a new pump, low pressure lines and clamps.
Once that is done it should be down to finding a slow speed squeak somewhere in the rear axle or brakes and the PM is done on this one ... except that the suspension is OEM and beat to hell ... so maybe not. Oh, and the bumpers, they are beat too ... and the trailer hitch is busted ... and the rear defrost needs to be replaced ... and it could use some new speakers all around ...
I'm still not clearanced for 35s and I don't want to run my nice new wheels on the trails, and since the old 33s are way out of balance and possibly have a shifted belt I can't drive on them, so you'll see me doing a quick pit stop session before we hit the trails. On a positive note, I won't have to air down and back up again, just have to use my electric impact.
Parts came in to get the power steering pump changed on the white Cruiser, but have found a new distraction. Inherited a tow behind off-road caper from @VBRoamer ... super stoked to get this back on the road asap.
