  1. Same thing happened in Philly some years back, right by the sports complex on I95. Tire/wheel came off a trailer and bounced into oncoming traffic. Went through the front of a minivan and killed the poor guy while his wife sat next to him. You can't be too alert out there.
  2. Now that I've thought about this project a bit more, I have to ask what kind of power is under that long hood? Flames aren't always appropriate. 😁😉
  3. I'm a kid too. Sounds awesome! Have you tried looking on Pinterest for your flames?
  4. Make sure you use synthetics all around or you'll never see those numbers. 😁

    I agree and I'll stay out of the granny lane all day long in order to take the lane of least resistance; the center lane on a three lane road. Four wheelers and their odd merging habits keep me in the center lane as much as possible. However, safety and courtesy dictate that you stay out of the hammer lane (again, a three lane road) unless you're passing another vehicle.
  6. At this point, it might be best to install a whole new harness, especially if you're finding corrosion at multiple locations.
  7. Just to be clear...are we talking about an N14 or an ISX? Might want to get your hands on a wiring diagram and identify every single ground that comes off that electrical system. It seems as though every time someone messes with the wiring you have some success. Biggest mistake is to assume that you only need to clean battery and engine grounds. Always cringe when someone says they replaced the "bad" pins. What criteria did they use to define "bad"?
  8. Volvo dealership just south of Austin on I35. However, I wouldn't travel I35 between the hours of 0400 and 0355. 😀
  9. Great lesson to be learned here. Congrats on getting it figured out. Very, very glad to hear you didn't have to go rooting around in the harness.

    LOL...could easily see that happening on I-10 between Beaumont, TX and Lafayette, LA. What a cluster.
  11. Thanks, Rick. I hope it will be that easy.
  12. Winner, winner, chicken dinner! 😆
  13. Check ALL grounds first, not just the battery.
