  1. I was thinking Phil was being quite calm and retirement was doing him wonders. Nigel
  2. Yes it is amps per magnet. Electrics is a foreign language to Roger but he is very in tune with his combination and knows when something is not right.
  3. Not anybody local that I’ve met. There have been a couple of new guys I’ve sent to Georgetown for insurance but I have no idea what they have. Edit: I think you’re one of them Nigel
  4. The top centre of the dash where the cup holder is lifts off and the fuse box and relays are under there. There may be two torx screws holding the cover on and they are accessed through the drink holder. Most mechanics don’t seem to put the screws back in once they have been in there so yours may be missing. Most often the bed builder will grab power for the bed lights at the rear of the frame where the factory lamps were. That would be a good place to start looking for a bad connection. Nigel

    How is Nigel Doing

    Time for an update. I’m on Vancouver island almost eight months later than planned. I had a balance and mobility test a couple of weeks ago and my result was I compare to an average late thirties person who never had a spinal injury. In January my result was late sixties. Although I feel really good I think the average late thirties person I compare to must be in terrible shape 😊. Hope to meet Roger Dickinson tomorrow, can’t thank him enough for moving my truck and trailer to storage and calling within the hour when we asked for help. Nigel
  6. I’ve seen many “professional” car haulers secure vehicles that way. It works but I would be wary of scratching the rims if the wheels or straps are dirty. I’ve never done it myself, I didn’t want the customer or dealer scrutinizing my work that hard. Should be easier than baskets though. Nigel
  7. Funny I have the opposite problem. Every time I see Ontario I think it is someone close and then get disappointed. Yes we must remember most of the members here will be Americans. When I see CN I think railway or tower so CDN is probably better. Nigel
  8. Slixter pm sent. Do four of the seven usual things and swear out an affidavit. No inspection required but make sure you have the required stuff in case you ever get a roadside check. Welcome to the site Nigel
  9. I know a fellow near me that had a couple of 08 Volvo’s with the i-shift. He said they were excellent until about 550,000 miles and then he had all kinds of transmission issues that the local dealer threw lots of parts at them and eventually he had the transmissions replaced and then sold them soon after. So I don’t think the transmission being replaced is a bad thing and if there is warranty that could be a bonus. I don’t know about the turbo maybe someone else has knowledge. Nigel

    Carl is good that way. Last year he had snow for us Canadians and rain for those from the northwest. Nigel

    No Facebook here either. When David gets a chance can they be put on the East Coast Rally site? Thanks Nigel
  12. runaway parents. I think you could do exactly that but don’t forget to push in the red trailer service knob or you will have no trailer brakes, not quite idiot proof. Nigel
  13. Thanks for letting us know Luke.
  14. Luke The fellow that did mine disconnected one line at a time until he found one that had air coming out of it only when the brake pedal was pushed. That will be suitable to t into. I suspect one of the small lines going into the black firewall pass thru will work as the pressure transducers are on the inside of the pass thru. Mine is t’d into one of the larger lines right above the steering column but my truck is a couple of thousand miles away so I can’t tell you which one. Nigel
