    A/C new install

    I'm having the same problem on my 7 ton. Low side pressure is 18psi, warm outlet air from evap and I charged the system to the correct 2.25lbs of 134a. I think my TXV is either bad or possibly backwards if that's possible. I didn't have the correct high side adapter for my gauge set Sent from...

    Yea I go there fairly often because I'm close. I don't know of any trucking companies. United states of freight is a advertiser on this site. Maybe try them

    How to add a liter of displacement to your CAT for about $170

    I like the idea of a sports car where you're only at WOT for a short period. I wouldn't be comfortable going up a long grade at full throttle for a 10 minutes.

    Anyone headed to Yermo? MK23

    They usually don't let people go inspect and you have to argue with them to get past the gate. Even if you are there to pickup they want to bring the truck out to you.

    Need help with unhooked hose

    My starter doesn't have that. Pretty sure that's the moisture drain hose. Alot of starters have them. See the two black hoses in this pic Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk

    7 Ton transmission oil change

    Jon, loved your video and the commentary is great. My trans has a high level of copper too, likely coming from the trans cooler/heat exchanger in the radiator leaching a bit of copper into the oil. I'm shocked to here that Blackstone didn't find water in the oil. It looks like rust to me. I...

    Oil sample valves, how to use

    Push in and turn slightly to the right. They are pretty neat valves Two tips: 1. Put the cap back on after! If a stick, branch or something were to magically jump out and push on that valve while your on a trail... Bad news 2. For the engine side. It's a sample port, not a drain. You are...

    Replace LED clearance marker on MK23

    Quick FYI. The yellow 5 LED marker lights on the front are no longer available, only a 2 LED light can still be bought. If you have to do the clearance lights on the top of the cab you will have to place all 5 if you want them to match.

    Mixing tire brands on truck

    The AT2's I've seen are much smaller in diameter than the XZL's. It might be okay to have a different brand on the front axle compared to the rears, but I wouldn't mix tires on the rear
