in ny it is illegal to use one one but you may have one *unplugged* in your vehicle. doesnt make any sense but that is ny for ya. i think you may also use one for the safety warning frequencies but im not possetive about that. i still use one and have been pulled over with it on ironically and the officers usually tell you to put it away or they can confiscate it. ---- edward http//www.crooked-ridez.com me wrote snipped i believe that ny state and connecticut allow their possession but it is illegal to use them. washington dc and va ban their possession obviously that covers use as well. didnt think the use is illegal. do you have some proof of that as far as i know virginia and d.c. are the only banning states. use of a radio that can receive police signals is illegal in ny. hd in ny .

just my quick 2c without reading the whole thread even if youre in a state where theyre illegal do it anyway. if it saves you from a single ticket the fine plus confinscation will still be worth it by the time you pay the ticket and get your ins. rates rased for 3 yrs while its on your record. just make sure you put it on the visor not the windshield and use the straight wire not the coil cord. tuck it under your windshields post and run it around to your lighter or fuse box so it cant be seen from the outside. i also recommend a super dark tint bar on the front windshield and tinting the back window dark too. if youre really worried run it in dark mode or better yet get a v1 and get the concealed display. hope that helps someone l8rs. p.s. oh one more thing i personally put it on the passenger side visor to make it less likely a cop would see it if you did get pulled over. theyre more likely to come to the driver side in my experience. -- for email response or cc please mailtosee.my.sig.4.addr@bigfoot.com. yeah its really a real address ............................................................................... !!! posted @ paladin !!! private and anonymous! very fast- no download limits try us for free at www.paladin.com ............................................................................... .

i have a 79 dodge and am trying to decide if i need a new brake booster for it or not. brakes are working but have to use very hard foot pressure to get them to work as they should. driven a 75 and 80 models and dont remember either of those needing that much effort. could be hoses too but havent gotten that far yet just wonering if there was a way to check the booster or not. .

dave brower wrote hi im thinking about trading my 99 sierra 1500 for a new dodge hemi ext. cab 4x4. are there any issues with the current models that i should be aware of also how do the hemis do on gas mileage i bought a new dodge reg. cab short bed in 96 and had no trouble with it in 60k except for the tranny cooler lines blowing offfixed under warranty. thanks for your inputpro & con dave i can tell you what i did. traded in my 02 sierra 1500 4.8l extended cab 4 dr on an 03 dodge ram 1500 quad cab hemi. soooo glad i did. the hemi is a great engine and my last tankful not towing came out to 15 mpg. thats better than the sierra did in the first 1000 miles. the quad cab is much better than the extended cab. the doors open wide and you never get trapped in between clamshell doors while in a parking lot. hd in ny .

radar detectors are only illegal in nys for trucks over 18000 gvwr. incorrect as any commercial driver can tell you. any vehicle over 10000 lbs commercial use is illegal as by federal law. any state law that says otherwise such as illinois is an old law and the federal law overrides it. there is no ban for passenger vehicles. radios capable of receiving police frequencies are illegal in any vehicle in nys. me wrote snipped i believe that ny state and connecticut allow their possession but it is illegal to use them. washington dc and va ban their possession obviously that covers use as well. didnt think the use is illegal. do you have some proof of that as far as i know virginia and d.c. are the only banning states. use of a radio that can receive police signals is illegal in ny. hd in ny in the early 1980s i received a ticket for using a radar detector in connecticut merrit parkway. the state highway patrolman had a radar detector detector. dont know if its still the law or perhaps they are not enforcing it the ny assertion is hearsay. i have a friend who told me he saw signs on the ny state throughway going toward albany. --- outgoing mail is certified virus free. checked by avg anti-virus system http//www.grisoft.com. version 6.0.510 / virus database 307 - release date 8/14/2003 .

your 30 lbs on the low side running of course is about right. there are systems that cool well at 40 lbs some that are designed to work at 20 lbs. $1500 for an evap core condeser and lines is about $1000 mark up over a well paid job. bullshit. where in hell do you get this shit from spam boy you think for one second even a hack can do it for $500 you are dead wrong. you have that much in parts and then you have labor.. so.. moron. stop giving advice if its all going to be spam for your site or wrong. a/c malfunction continued so i take my truck into my local 5 sphincter dealer since im going to south dakota from san francisco and with all of nevada and the utah salt flats in front of me i aint goin without a/c... i leave the truck with them for nine count em nine days. fred the wrinkled shirted crooked necktied service writer calls me and says the system was pressure tested ultraviolet dye was injected and no leaks were found so they re-charged the system and it now blows cold as can be.... upon my return to pick up the truck i switch on the a/c and it is the same as when i dropped it off. no a/c! the service writer grabs his trusty ultraviolet light and starts scrambling all over the front end of the truck and can find no evidence of dye indicating a leak anywhere. service writer suggests i leave truck for another week so they can check further into the problem. my reply is sorry pal you just had nine days and fixed nothing. i gotta go to sd so check it now. i leave truck for rest of day. that afternoon service idiot calls me and sez they found failure in a/c lines condensor also evaporator. recommend to replace and recheck. at a cost of $1500+. i asked him about calling dodge to inquire about a good-will repair since the failure was so dramatic involving virtually every part of the a/c system short of the compressor. i pointed out that he could see the truck has very low mileage is obviously in perfect condition. i also indicated he had the records in front of him demonstrating a religious maintenance regimen and lastly is barely a year out of warranty. i further indicated that as someone with many years of experience with a certain american motorcycle manufacturer it was not impossible and certainly worth a try at the least. he refused this request acting as if he had never heard of such a thing. i actually told them over the phone to do the job since i had all that desert etc. to cross but fortunately the service flack told me they did not have all the parts in stock and couldt do the work until two days after my scheduled departure. thus i figured id take the truck tough out the drive and have it fixed in sunny south dakota since i was gonna be there for two weeks and discomfort aside id at least save money on labor compared to the bay area. knowing they used the dye i return to retrieve my truck and ask them to show me the leaks at the places mentioned. nothing was visible to my untrained eye. except at the valve where the dye was injected where any fool could see flourescent greenish-yellow fluid all over the nipple black light or not. i climb into the truck and flip on the a/c. voila! it is blowing cold! the next day it blew cold and the day after that too. i checked the pressure in the low pressure line daily and it remained the same day after day. so we loaded up and headed out to sd. that was two weeks ago yesterday. 16 days and 4000 miles later im still waiting for the leaking a/c to stop working! even in temps of well over 100 max ac cooled the interior to comfortable levels quickly and if i aimed the left vent at my hand i had to re-adjust it cause my hand got numb from the cold. all of which leads me to one last question; what is the correct pressure i should be seeing on the low line mine has not varied by a pound in over two weeks. i reads in the 30 lb range but it does jump up and down by about five pounds as the compressor cycles on and off. i also have frost forming which gary indicated is a possible sign of low pressure. as always tia doug .

there are also add ons to trucks that utlize an electric clutch as a sort of pto. just like a 4wd transfer case. now this is much more expensive but also much more dependable. you enguage the pto to the gen/alt and adjust your engine speed to match the required hz.59.8-60.4 that is just the way any ac gen would work. if you are not worried about the ac power and dc is your thing. no worries about the engine speed itll produce fine dc at idle but as you add load the power or voltage drops off. so you need to increse speed of the engine. the military ie marines do have this in several humvees ive seen but the sand didnt do so well with the gens. they were air cooled and were not sufficently filtered durring the early summer months of sandstorms. now they use a seperate tow behind gen set for mobile power. hope this helps bob ring .

and what happens when the engine turns 4000 it can be set up to put out full power at idle you just use a really small pulley on the alternator itself for alot more turns at idle. ignoramus4661 wrote there is an ongoing military program to provide the army with pickup trucks that also have a 20kw generator connected to the engine. such trucks could provide power at remote sites during deployment of troops. it sounds like a great idea. what i am thinking about right now is whether it is possible to replace an existing car alternator with one that could generate say 1 kilowatt of electricity. i have a pickup truck and with such an aleranator and an inverter i could have a great standby power capacity. i have a 1999 dodge ram truck and i know that there is enough space under the hood to mount a bigger alternator. are such extra powerful alternators available yes they are available. high end stereo enthusiasts use them. trouble is i would think your gas mileage would drop from having to turn a larger alternator. thank you. i did see some such alternators for sale on ebay. a question remains are they really as good as advertized. do they really say put 200 amps when the engine is idling. i would suppose that their effect on gas mileage should be minimal. a typical car engine or truck engine probably puts out something like 50-70 hp at highway speeds. the alternator if it is not really producing 2 kw of power would probably not use more than 1-2 hp which is not much. i i .
