    • Thanks guys!  We are right in the middle of relocating our manufacturing company, but as soon as things settle I want to get this sorted (as well as finish the split AC install, insulating the cab with closed cell foam, finishing the interior, and on and on and on hahaha). Appreciate the tips very much!
    •  We are going to Beaumont Tx and they just had a tropical storm come thru but no damage to their house. Leadville is  a neat town but kinda hard to breathe here,  Oxygen helps alot!!! Not sure how I got caps on but will fix next post.
    • We are not sure of our route yet but if you know where the ice cream machine is, we might have to make a detour!!!  Are you still having tornados there?
    • What is the rear axle ratio? What type of miles/gallon are you getting loaded/unloaded?
    • I had developed an exhaust leak.  I could not pinpoint where it was.  I could hear it and see the black soot covering the right side of the engine.  The only way to find and fix it was to start tearing parts off.  First I removed the fender liner, then the brace.  To keep from cutting my leg up I removed the piece from the front with the fog and driving lights.  The air filter box and piping had to come off.  My add-on air horns were also in the way.  This is what I had once all the parts were removed giving me access. This is where I found the leak.  It was where the exhaust manifold clamped to the tube that mounts the forward EGR valve.  I always thought the part that went to the EGR valve was open.  It's not.  I guess it is made that way for mounting and possibly heat transfer. It is all back together now.  All the soot is cleaned off and and the exhaust leak is fixed.  The entire job took a lot of wrenching but removing the stuff in the way rather than trying to work around it was definitely worth the time.  It was not a hard job - maybe my pics and success will help another Volvo D12D owner save some shop $$$.  I figure a Volvo tech would work twice as fast as I do.  Since I spent a full day, including breaks and head scratchin', I figure I saved at least $450 in labor by doing it myself.  That is a lot of diesel for traveling.
