    Brake Job

    So I elected to go with the Milwaukee M18 Fuel 1/2" and wow quite the tool. I ended up not using the cheater wrench for torquing... was not impressed - may work great for removal but did not use... Man am I glad I changed my disk pads...they still had some life left as the indicators showed (not much), but they were a mess breaking apart.... Just another job done on the rig...or should I say just more money gone..... Mark
  2. Any update on the saga?

    Hey Scrap, Yes you can see the wear indicators as well as some of the pad (mine does not have the dust covers). So hear I go....decided to go with the Cheater Wrench. Also ordered their adapter (1" to 1/2"), that you can use a 1/2" torque wrench through the torque multiplier. They have a chart to set the torque wrench in relation to the multiplier to obtain the "correct" torque. We shall see - will report on my progress. Thanks for all the input Mark

    Brake Job

    Need to ask the experts on the forum.. Really need new brake pads on my rig - it has disk brakes all around so really easy to swap out the pads...the issue is getting the wheels off and back on...always trying to save a nickel and besides love to tinker.... What are other folks doing to remove wheels ( I've done a lot of reading about the Milwaukee 1/2 gun as a possible tool) If I get a torque multiplier to remove the nuts do folks use the multiplier to reinstall and how do you know if it's torqued correctly? I know besides taking it to the shop? Mark
  5. My 780 has only one for all the bags.....I know some earlier Volvos had more that one valve. Here is a pic of the holes...sorry about the mud - dirt roads in the mountains... Mark
  6. I will post a better picture when I get the truck back from the Stealership....or maybe I won't be able to ....could be in jail if I get caught robbing the bank to pay for truck repairs!! Mark
  7. Jack,' I was afraid you'd say that..... Mark
  8. Great suggestion...still need to figure out how to attach to the frame and clear the ramp boxes on the lower end....
  9. I did some research on older threads on adding a receiver but nothing that fit my predicament. And yes I know, should thought about adding one BEFORE the bed....oh well. Any experts out there have a suggestion on if I could add one with my configuration and not lose my current light panel? Mark [IMG]https://i.imgur.com/AizKzJRl.jpg[/IMG]

    Resource Guide

    I've been trying to look at the Resource Guide for a couple of days now and can't open it. It may be my security software (but have looked at it many times before). Was wondering if anyone else can access it, if so I will continue to figure out why I can't....campgrounds work okay... Thanks Mark
