Why don't you put the coffee on, we're all heading up to your place

Raining all night, plus hi winds for a bit, enough for me to juggle the vehicles away from the trees. All my outdoor plans are pretty much cancelled today, so that'll probably mean doing some shopping in another town.

Good Morning DieselRam!!!
Going to be a BEEE.AAA.UTIFUL day!! And I'm sitting on the clock..
Sunny and 32, climbing to 60 ish.
Maybe I'll wash my truck..
Tomorrow supposed to be similar with a few clouds so I'll make the most of that.
Last 2 days were pretty good haulin...except the 07 leaked nearly a quart of oil from the rear of the engine on Thursday!!
Then leaked almost none on Friday..
Rear main or pan gasket..
Gonna use a buddys shop on Wednesday and check it out.
Plan to change the pan gasket anyway.
One of my more experienced Cummins friends says use "The Right Stuff" instead of a gasket and no more troubles...

GOODMORNINGDIESELRAM....bad weekend. Yesterday the retina doctor told me I need surgery to fix me retina problem, but first the cataract that has been too small to do anything with has started to grow rapidly to the point is need to be removed before the retina surgery. To add to the bad news, Oregon has it's first case of Cornea virus just 20 miles from us. Hope the cataract surgeon contacts me next week to get this fixed. Question for my Kanadain friends how long would you have to wait on average there for this surgery?

Sunny 40's today and no dumptruckin.
Went to Harbor Freight and bought one of their lightweight 1.5 ton aluminum floor jacks.
It wouldn't raise enough to get the pass. side front wheel off the ground. That corner of the car must weigh over 3000 lbs. They refunded my money so I guess I'll need a 3 ton/6000b. jack to get that wheel up.

Sorry to hear about this BRD, to be honest, I have no idea how long you'd have to wait, but heres an example, the wife has to have her heart tested, she has an appointment in October, she saw the doctor last October. Pretty sad eh.

Cloudy with a few spits of rain, so I did an oil change on the wifes car, then took off the tranny pan on my truck, and installed the double deep BD panafter I changed the filters and fluid. What a mess draining the oil with the factory pan with no drain plug. I got the chrysler ATF+4 SYNTHETIC O/E oil. Took about 10 litres. And half a bag of cat litter to soak up the oil that missed the drain pans.
