So, I decided to bite the bullet and get all new tires for my
trailer. I shopped them HARD! I ended up w/ 9-235/75/R17.5
tries for $565.65 "DELIVERED FREE" Total, Out the DOOR!
16ply, Load Range M 5675lbs each in a Dual Config

So that is a 45,400 load rated tires on 2 axles that are rated at 23K each
for 46,000 (less rims and tires)

I think I got a SMOKING HOT deal on NINE Tires! LOL!

Yeah. Walmart has pretty good deals on commercial tires lately

Steering Wheel Repair

So I called a couple of steering wheel repair shops and the prices
were astronomical to putty up my ring cracks and fractures in
the Bakelite 20" stock steering wheel and I have given up looking
for a new one. I told a buddy about my plight and he recomended
I get a product called Wizard Repair Products (WRP) . He swaers by it.
SO I bought a small batch of it. He is really good a tedious detail
work so I let him have-at-it. I AM IMPRESSED! Letting it sit and
get good and hard then hit it w/ some 600 grit and spray paint it
Black...
He swears it will bond... He was very miticulous in cleaning the bakelite
and there is a process, this WRP comes in 4 parts... 2 puttys you knead
together and 2 solutions for bonding I think it was.

ONE MAN'S TRASH...

_So we went from a Big Cam 1 to a Big Cam 3 and w/ the BC3 there
is no LuberFiner 750 used. I went w/ my initial idea of converting
that tank into a WindShield Washer Fluid Resivoir and by golly, all
my thoughts came together and it works! Remember I have installed
an A/C system so the standard fair 1 gallon white plastic jug was mounted
just to the right of the accelerator pedal, a PITA it was...

_First I completely stripped all fitting and I mean ALL FITTINGS off of
the tanks lower and upper lid. I used a CAT 7155 type breather for
the exhaust (center top) and drilled and installed some 3/16" barbed
bulkhead fittings w/ o-rings for the AIR IN and WASHER FLUID OUT.
The bottom 3 holes were filled w/ fine thread bolts and flanged nuts
and hose washers. I just cut the AIR and WASHER FLUID lines at the
old white tank and used some 3/16" barb x barb fittings and extended
the hoses. VIOLA!~

He shoots, HE SCORES!

WARN Series 18 18,000 Military Winches

I picked up 2 of these bad boys some time back. I think they were on MRAPS /
Buffalo type trucks. I needed some springs for the Anti Birds nest tension plate
and dang, they averaged $20 EACH plus ride! I took some measurements and
pulled the trigger on a pair of these from McMaster https://www.mcmaster.com/94135K42
Two for the price of one. I think they will be perfect... Stock springs are #24293

Additionally the clutch that allows you to freewheel the line OUT quickly is an Air Clutch.
The part to replce is expensive. I simply connected an air line to it and it works fine so
a line from the truck will be easy the few times I may need it ( for now) .
