"Daniel, I just installed a Easy Start from Micro Air on my rv ac and it reduced the start up amps from 45 amps to 13 amps. I did this so that I can run my ac on my 2000 watt inverter generator. Have you thought of that?"

"Kevin, I don't want to bust your bubble but, your truck has thermal vacuum switches. That means that they operate at different temps. The vacuum to your EGR does not work until the engine reaches a certain temp. No vacuum to the EGR at idle at…"

"Oh and Kev, that oil filler cap with the line from the carb bowl vent should not go to a pcv. You have a pcv in the back of the valve cover. If you put one in the front it won't work. They will fight each other. Make sure that the front one is…"

Hi Jack,

Many thanks for the tip, I'll give it a whirl and see how we go. I've been under there today cleaning all the crud off and trying to get an I.D on the axle but without success. 

I put some card under last night and there's not been any drips overnight. Hope It's not all gone !!

Jack, you wrote:
"Sorry Don, but that type of video is not my cup of tea. Eye strain and a head ache. I prefer real time videos that do not jump around.Just my two cents worth."

Please do not apologize Sir, obviously, you are in enough pain to reach out to a perfect stranger for help. While I am not a doctor or a psychiatrist I have done a lttle research into the nature of your complaint. The video in question has been seen by millions of people over the past five years and you are the only known case to have a complaint so you have good cause to be concerned. The first thing that comes to mind is you should have your eyes checked for the cause of eye strain. If your eyes check out good then you would need to see a psychiatrist for the cause of the head aches. I am told it may be a case of clinical depression coupled with an inability to sit quietly in a room, alone. I hope this is some help to you Jack.
