  1. Air line diagram

    Stan Looking at the update that you enclosed it showed a date of 1 2027 and I didn't see a VNL reference so I was wondering if there was more to this pdf. But I would think that this would still be accurate for tracing the air system. Thanks Pat The Old Sailor
  2. Hitch cover at ECR

    Shannon I think that we talked about the hitch cover. The one that my friend made me just covered the Brinkley head. At the ECR i saw a cover that covered the entire hitch. He didn't have time to make a second one but if you are still interested let me know. I didn't have computer access while we were at the ECR so I didn't see your post till i got on the net here at the house. So I am sorry that we didn't get to hook up. We had a great week up there in between the snow flakes and the rain! The Old Sailor

  4. 2018 East Coast Rally.

    Carl and Donna, Thank You'll for all the great work you did getting this ECR to be so successful. All you did is amazing so thanks again. Thanks to all of the presenters for all they did. We are home and the truck and 5er are on the slab and emptied. It has to go to the dealer for a ailing black water valve on Wen. But we did get home safe and sound. Pat The Old Sailor
  5. N-14 had an ear ache

  6. Project progress

    Moresmoke You are on the right path. Down on the outer banks of NC when ever a shop is building a boat to big for the shop they just build a frame of 2x4's and then put the blue tarp on. You just forgot to build the frame or you just ran out of time!! The bed sure looks good! There were several trucks at the ECR that had the super singles. They look good and everybody that had them said they could really tell a good difference. Pat The O;d Sailor

  8. Davco 380 Fuel Filter Change

    Test was sat. I let the truck run for a 1/2 hour ckd the filter. Still at the and just above the black ring. Drove the truck around for a hour. no problems. Got back to the house and ckd the filter again. Still just above the black ring. washed and waxed the truck. Cool but sunny. hooked up to the 5er and ready for a morning UW to meet up with Never Easy and then head for the ECR. All seems to be well. Hope to see everybody at the Rally. Pat The Old Sailor
  9. Davco 380 Fuel Filter Change

    Pete Yes both gaskets were changed twice and the bottom old filter gasket was removed. I talked to the tech (Rich) at DAVco this morning and he told me that there would be some bubbles because of the turbulent nature of the fuel flowing thru the filter. He asked me if I was having starting problems or a lose of power. I told him no to both questions. Then he said that I should just fill the filter up to the top let it idle for a minute then vent the the black knob until the level is just above the black locking nut collar and then tighten. I drive the truck around for about 6-8 miles this morning before I talked to him So tomorrow i'll try this again. I will let it idle awhile and then drive it awhile. But keeping a eye on the filter. I have to make a decision about getting UW wen for the ECR. Whae a crazy couple of days all because of a $13 filter. Pat The Old Sailor
  10. who has commercial California registration

    iddy Could you just keep it at your friends ranch? Is the ranch big enough to hid the truck? Tag it in some other state and hope for the best. One of the states you could get a LLC. But then you would always be looking over your shoulder. Tough to win. I wish you the beat of luck no matter what you decode. Pat The Old Sailor

  12. Davco 380 Fuel Filter Change

    Chet I just printed the pdf file for the filter. That should really help. Hope I can tell the difference between a air bubble and a vapor bubble! Thanks again All Pat The Old Sailor
  13. Davco 380 Fuel Filter Change

    Chat/All I drained it just like it said do and cleaned everything just like it said and reinstalled. Same results as rainy/cold yesterday. Bubbles. now I've read that Davco pdf. I will climb under the truck tomorrow and ck for leaks. There was a specific procedure in the pdf. i hope I can figure it out. Wen is getting closer. I am going to find out if anyone local has any parts in house for this filter. I had no issues before I changed the filter. Hopefully tomorrow will be better. I can't thank Chat and Deb enough for coming over yesterday and helping. He got it running now all I have to do is find the leak! Thanks everybody for all of the great help, advice and recommendations. Pat The Old Sailor And if this keeps up much older way to soon!!!!
  14. Davco 380 Fuel Filter Change

    Dave Thanks for that info had a gal on hand. Suite Got everything back together and had a issue with prime. Chet (Never Easy) came over (in the rain and cold) and helped to get the prime back and to get it to start and run. However it keeps bubbling. Have taken it back apart, recleaned everything and put in a second set on new o rings. Still wants to bubble. Didn't have a issue before I changed the filter. Rewatched the video a couple of times. Just can't seem to get the bubbles to stop. With it running the diesel in the filter starts to lower. Can't seem to figure it out. Any ideas Pat The Old Sailor
