    I've just bought a buyers box from Zoro.com they have a 15% off first order it's a 18x18x30 box bullet hinges and a nice handle it's the heavier gauge box and Zoro has free shipping. My be worth a look I paid 244.00 to the door
  2. It was registered in another state as a motor home and I was able to get it registered MH in Ca.
  3. Tried to get fancy and post 2 pictures at once and it doesn't seem I got that done right so here's another picture
  4. I knew I would have to do some maintenance but didn't expect this. I had it singled by a locale guy anybody in Southern California needs a guy I can recommend the guys who did mine. The truck is a early 2010 and has the 13F engine in it so no DEF and the tanks are 100 each. Next thing I'm going to do is weed burner exhaust then a motorcycle garage. New driver seat then I'll be close to done. I'll be looking for the 5 wheel then. 29 months till retirement. All of the coolant hoses are new now and I put in fleetgaurd OAT coolant for the longevity. The truck is persimmon color my wife calls him Percy. Thanks everyone Iddy
  5. I thought someone might like to see a picture of my truck after we singled and after the test drive after cooler fix
  6. I had a small coolant leak when cold I wasn't loosing much but I couldn't leave it. I bought all the parts i could think of and fixed several things while in there ( i broke off all the egr valve bolts)and had to have a machine shop remove. It cost me 2k in parts and about 3 full days and a few days on waiting for machine shop. Has anyone ever seen the turbo gasket? It's about half the size of the opening I checked several sources and they said it was the right gasket but doesn't seem right. Any one want to see more pictures I'll post up Ron

    test of pic post

    what i've been working on for the last week new oil cooler cover
  8. I also have the high torque Milwaukee and I really like it. Did a brake job on the front of my 630 I broke the wheels loose and the frozen shock bolts that a air 1/2 inch wasn't even thinking about taking off. it's a beast and I thought it was cheap at Home Depot without battery it was on sale for just a little over 230.00 with a free 12ah battery so I actual guess it did come with battery. Iddy
  9. This one has been sold to me I dont think I can change the title of post to sold but as of now I'm the proud owner and he's a great truck.

    My Drom

    I actually wanted it too but unable right then. I was wondering if I could ask you what it weighed? Inside dimension, length of your truck, space between it and the hitch, space between it and the truck and why you picked that and where it's at how much did it add to the front axle? I want to get one built or build one my self just like it for two smaller motorcycles and love this box thanks Iddy

    Volvo VIN search

    I used Rig Dig I think it was 35.00. I thought it was useful told we where it was first bought all other owners and a wreck it was in at one time. And all the inspection it has had and passed/or failed
  12. I know on a lot of computer controlled vehicle the computer sends out 5v to the sensors and if anything happens to that voltage to change it what comes back to the computer will be wrong. I don't know why but this often seems to be A/C stuff. If there is any insulation missing on the wire it can give the computer fits. I know ona Cummins Dodge it's often the hi pressure A/C sensor wire that has rubbed against the line that will make all kinds of readings wrong. I hope this is of some help. Iddy

    DPF Cleaning Results

    I'm thinking of doing the same thing. Did you have the Computer soot level reset? Where did you get your parts at. I've been looking for cheaper parts especially the dozer gaskets. So you've gone to 1 Regen per tank now after cleaning and it takes less time? That's good to know thanks for the post. Iddy
  14. Thanks everyone especially Chad my wife and I had a great time. I'm off to pickup my truck up Sunday wish me luck. Can't wait for next years all ready. Ron and Kerstin
