  4. INTERIOR TASKS Fix Intermittent Wipers (should just be a new lever but could require a new wiper motor). Also need to get the washer fluid solid so I can wash off any mud or dirt HVAC (currently don't really get much air flow so need to pull out the ducts and see if got a mouse nest or if blower motor is dying or even if the flappers aren't working) Pull out Seats, Carpeting, Padding, Inside Trim, Roof. Inspect metal for any rust what so ever (take care of any rust spots) Undercoat interior metal floors, fenders (anything metal inside) Dynomat anything metal inside (need to quite down interior space) Look into install rollbar to attach rear seatbelts to and potentially boat speakers for when the top if off Install new padding/carpeting Install seats

  8. Tomorrow (2021-07-20) getting my two front seats fixed so they have some padding. I think a spring or something is poking the passenger in the ass and the drivers side feels as though a big man use to drive the truck and a big sag in the middle of the seat. Anyhow, its not super comfy at the moment so if I could get both seats re-done, I'll be happy.
  9. This is a pretty common issue and here are some possible causes Most commonly If you have a low amount of transmission fluid in your vehicle, you could have problems reversing your vehicle. Low transmission fluid can cause all kinds of problems with the gears, such as gear slippage, shifting problems, and overheated gears. One common problem that can happen with a clogged filter is difficulty moving in reverse. The lack of fluid flowing through the transmission can cause the reverse gear to lock. This may prevent the vehicle from going in reverse altogether, or it may cause it to hesitate before launching into reverse. Every automatic transmission has a valve body. This is large, maze-like component that directs the flow of hydraulic fluid to the valves. This is what allows a car to smoothly shift gears whenever the situation calls for it. In case of a bad transmission valve body, you may experience delayed shifting into reverse or simply nothing happening after shifting in reverse and stepping on the gas. Sometimes the transmission fluid gets contaminated with enough hardened deposits or other gunk that it actually affects a vehicle shifting into reverse or other gears. While not that common of an issue, changing the transmission fluid and filter (if your car has one) is a cheap course of action. ...

    Come join us for a weekend of fun! Open wheeling, camping, poker run and DJ on the stage. Sorry no live music due to COVID
  12. Talked to Randy today and they added the part but said it got installed wrong but they fixed it. They are moving mechanics from one project to another since they are short handed. I did ask him if he could video the dyno and he said he would try but no guarantee since they are swamped. I’ll chat with them when I get back into town so probably Friday
  13. Talked to Rich today around 2 and he said new turbo is in, they are working on the ball joints and getting the alignment done this afternoon. Tomorrow (Thursday) all they have left is the gauges. Right now it feels pretty positive I’m getting my truck sometime tomorrow.
  14. Just dropped my truck off at Dirty Diesel Hooker to get new turbo installed, ball joints and the maxtow gauges.

  19. Dropped the Blazer off at Alpha Motorsports yesterday to see if they can tune it so it doesn't stall when its cold and maybe get it to not diesel when it shifts into 4th. Flat Rate of $100/hr labor 2 hr estimate to diagnose the engine issues I also asked them if they have time if they could look into the suspension but my primary focus is to get it to run good. Been talking on the phone with a guy named Randy. Very nice and polite and very up front with costs and work that needs to be done.
