  1. Working out side...... I've never...never broken down in a shop. Been hauled into a shop, to be fixed because I didn't have the tools (computer) to work on outside. On the farm, where I grew up, that was known as "The Big Shop", when working out side on equipment. Last year I had the ECM go to the "lymp mode". Made it to a Commings shop. I didn't know that I could hold my breath that long, (60 miles) . I always have a small rug or peace of plastic to throw down to work on. It helps to find things when they drop, keeps the ground clean, and every one happy. I try to keep up on preve

  9. HI I have my cluster repaired and back in. Every thing seams to be working just fine.. What I have left over from the project is a complete cluster out of a 2000 VNL 10 gage cluster, N 14 engine. Mine is a 7 gage cluster. The plug in in the back are different , because of the added gages. I needed to use the TC (truck), it worked fine until I could get my cluster repaired and back in, (I was in a pinch). I want $380 and I will pay the shipping. I can send more info on the cluster if needed. Thank you OU812
  10. I just wonder if.... that state law covers vehicles from California, out of California traveling for a long length of time (30 days or more), do they needing to register to another state? People wonder why I don't go to California very often. The land of fruit and nuts... OU812
  11. Good advice...... pull out a weapon and your life from then on will NEVER....NEVER be the same. It doesn't matter Who or What you are.. OU812
  12. I agree..... more like 35 to 50 for a set up.... Look at the price of a truck on a used truck lot, before the bead and hitch and ect. Good luck finding a truck that fits your needs. OU812
  13. Hi Dave Been to two Volvo dealers and others, all they have is one fits all....splice it in. Not willing to go that way unless that is all I can find. Wrecking yards have about the same. I got it on my wish list .... Now back to fixing oil leak on intermediate rear axel, pinion seal.....I hope I don't have to pull the third member.... Merry Christmas.. Thank you OU812
  14. I'm wanting to replace the in dash AM/FM radio. (98 Volvo VNL) Wanting a direct plug in, NO splicing, to install. Dose any one have a part number/ suplyer name, for a direct fit? I have looked on the internet, but the plug in is in question. My plug is a 13 pin.... six on each side and one off set in the middle. Thank you for any help. OU812
  15. Up date on dash cluster..... It took four + weeks to get the cluster to, repair, and back in the dash. I sent it to ASI in Rogersville, Tn. It looks liked new and when installed works great..... even the fuel gage works correctly. The cost total was in all is just short of $500. Still have a 10 gage dash cluster out of a 2000 VNL that had a n-14 engine. I did find out the 10 gage cluster has different plug in setup then the seven gage cluster. Every thing worked that I could plug in. Now on to other preventive maintain.... intermediate axel (RT 40) pinion seal leaking......mayb
