    Manual Cab Pump?

    What am I missing? I'm on my 3rd manual cab pump. All of them leak out of the black plastic housing on the back within 10mins of installing them. All 3 have been "new" pumps from one of the "big box" vendors.

    You can pick up a cheapo battery tester on amazon if needed. Your main concern is the ability to dial in the type of battery(AGMF,AGMS,Standard Flooded,Gel) and the CA/CCA just to give you an idea of what's in there.

    Put it on a standard charger (2-10amp) over night. Let it cool off for a few hours and then hit it with 40amp for and hour and then let it rest for a while and check it. Do you have any way of seeing amp hrs on your meter? I never really trust voltage for telling the life of a battery. I've seen...

    Rear Tail Lights

    Ronmar...That's exactly what I was looking for. Thank you. I was thinking it was gonna be in the switch itself but I wanted to make sure before I tore into it. I was gonna solder in a diode on each side in the back if I couldn't find the source. coachgeo...I tried the 12/24v plugs.

    1985 Saurer 6dm overland vehicle

    I saw you had this over on EXPO also. Glad and Sad for you. If you do still have it and are looking for a fluid that takes the place of gear oil for "High" heat applications whether transmission, transfer box, differentials, or even portal boxes I would recommend Redline 75W250. Works great for...

    The 419 brakes are a standard brake air needed other than robbing the vacuum line you already have for your booster now. I would leave the 2nd front caliper installed depending on what size tire you are gonna run and how fast. I put a set of these axles on a Range Rover a few years...
