Q: clt wrote what means lugging an engine is something like use the engine to stop the truck with a lower gear clt. lugging the engine is when you are in a gear that is too high for your speed engine rpm is too low. trying to accelerate up a hill in 5th gear with the engine at 700 rpm would be an example of lugging the engine. -- ken .

tbone wrote yes i do and so would you if you were not so damn politically biased. this is that very idiotic right wing shit that bushbaby was talking about. lol! the left does not support this war and does not support our troops. could you possibly be any more ignorant. just about everyone in the country supports our troops but way less than half support this occupation. calling for an immediate pull out is not helping or wanting success. perhaps because there will be no such thing as success. in all the lefts rhetoric regarding this war please tell us all what part of it directly supports our troops to succeed supporting our troops has nothing to do with success or failure that would be supporting the war moron and you are right few with brains are doing that anymore. funding perhaps yea right. i did notice that the rich right refuses to give up any of there bogus tax cuts to fund those troops. hell they are looking to have them extended and made permenant. yea real support there. sending more troops and where exactly do you intend to get them from perhaps cause a few more ng troops to lose their jobs homes families and perhaps lifes for this pointless occupation. what is the left visibly talking about in support of our troops to get them home safe and in one piece. lol fox reported on it as well. i guess that they are a left wing station as well. they report both sides far more often than cnn or cbs. and yet they still reported the torture. they must be a bunch of lefty communust bastards then huh miles lol! so to you it must be ok to torture pows and i guess that its ok for them to do it to ours right miles. putting underware on a detainees head is not torture...but to the liberal left it surely is. they were doing far more than that but as usual you see only what you want to with your right wing glasses. the left yelled about that one but said very little about our troops being burned dragged and hung from a bridge. complete bs. come to think of it i dont recall hearing much from the right about it either. perhaps because there isnt much that can be said about such a thing. ya the left supports our troops...good grief. typical extreme right wing bullshit. -- if at first you dont succeed youre not cut out for skydiving .

i am glad to hear that your family is uninjured. count your blessings there. many thanks! the truck is far from wrecked i gotta disagree there. its definately wrecked. how many people really use car fax anyway. every dealership where you go to trade in your truck. when im shopping for used vehicles bought 3 in the last year alone! i always use carfax. when a carfax shoes an accident i always and without exception move on to another vehicle without regard to any of the details involved. unless you plan on dumping it in the next few years in 2000 i bought a new jeep wrangler. in 2001 i bought an expedition. in 2002 i bought a new mustang gt. in 2003 i bought 2 new jeep wranglers. in 2004 i bought a used f350 a used dodge 2500 and a new dodge ram the one that got wrecked. so far in 2005 ive bought a new jeep wrangler and an 05 bighorn dually diesel. as clearly demonstrated in my vehicle history i buy a new vehicle more often than many people buy new shoes. yes this truck in question will also be dumped soon. what exactly is the officer going to give him a ticket for for hitting my truck. in fact the officer in question should have also pistol whipped him. - i am surprised to hear you say this. unless you think that the cab was forged out of a single piece of metal it most certainly can be replaced and you as a professional welder should know this. but to replace it will require a frankenstein job and i know how that shit goes. over time the paint peels shit starts to creek and moan etc. -- nathan w. collier http//utilityoffroad.com http//inlinediesel.com http//7slotgrille.com http//bighornrefrigeration.com .

alternative solution. i think half the problem is line size. it really is too small. please enlighten me with your experiece. i dont particlarly want to reinvent the wheel. without question the stock lines/banjos are pretty restrictive. most pusher pump kits come with replacement lines and an fittings replacing the stock 5/16 lines and banjo bolts. originally i went with a kit from diesel dynamics which removed the stock lift pump and replaced it with a carter pump mounted on the frame rail. larger lines were used and the banjos eliminated. this worked fine for a while but the pump was very noisy and i was noticing a gradual decrease in fuel pressure delivered to the injection pump. i liked the fass for its larger filters easier to change theyre the spin-on variety easier-to-access water drain the availability of a 3 micron filter the ones available for the stock filter canister are 10 micron and easier to service should the need arise. its very easy to adjust the delivered pressure up or down by simply removing a plug and changing a spring the manufacturer has various springs available. of course its ability to remove air from the fuel is its big claim to fame and is more beneficial on a 1st of 2nd gen truck as any air in the fuel acts to retard injection timing since the injectors are fired by hydraulic pressure. the one downside to the fass that i dont like is you can no longer fuel the truck while its running. the reason is the fass draws a lot of fuel from the tank and returns most of it. the return line gets plumbed into the filler neck vent. because of this putting fuel in through the filler neck creates positive pressure in the vent which will spit the fuel that the fass is returning out of the filler neck. the solution to this is simple... install another return directly into the tank and use that for the fass return leaving the filler vent free. once i get the proper motivation thats what im going to do drain/drop tank drill new hole mount fitting clean out plastic shavings re-install. hope that helps out some... .

the truck is far from wrecked and in all honesty how many people really use car fax anyway. unless you plan on dumping it in the next few years the possible devaluation from carfax would be minimal to non-existant. i dont get how anyone figures that damage is far from wrecked. thats about $3-5000 in damage depending on how the paint shop goes about matching the paint. and yes carfax is a fairly popular source on cars i see requests for them online and printouts from them on used car lots. it is not up to the police to determine who is at fault. that is up to the insurance companies and if necessary the legal system. the duty of the police is to report the facts involved in the accident and issue citations for any laws that were broken which may have lead to the collision. ok so in one paragraph you go from the cops having no determination in placing fault to having all the determination in finding fault. as usual you are spinning before even getting a reply. -- max give a man a match and he is warm for a short while. light him on fire and he is warm for the rest of his life. see http//inlinediesel.com/forum/topic.asptopicid=121 for pictures. .

no one was injured. why do you need an attorney simply because he is dealing with an insurance company is a good enough reason to hire an attorney. that sounds like paranoia to me and will put the insurance company on the defensive for no valid reason. what law did he break if the guy hit nates truck unless nates wife ran a red light the other driver clearly was proceeding when he couldnt see anything. thats careless driving on some level. lol you are kidding right!!! if the police did not witness any broken laws or the accident it is unlikely that they would issue a summons. bullshit. in pa someone gets a summons if not both drivers. probably becaue the towns in pa are so poor that they need any possible source of income including bogus traffic tickets. no one likes bondo. unless the truck is totalled or you are willing to sell it get used to it. rubbish. a proper body shop will repair with as little filler as possible. the pillar has minimal damage that can repaired. why do you want a new one unless you are willing to pay the difference neither insurance company is required to replace a repairable part. more crap. one you dont know the damage two it may well be that the policy nate bought requires replacement. considering the pillar is a primary component of the structural integrity of the cab and actually appears to have significant damage it will probably need to be replaced regardless of the policy he has and his policy really doesnt matter unless he intends to make a claim against he own insurance. the bank wont care what condition your truck is in. they will still want their payment. im pretty sure there is no bondo exclusion in your loan agreement. that wasnt his point. sorry to sound pesimistic but accidents happen. your insurance company should provide you with an attorney if there is any litigation. why do you have one already you paid a premium for your insurance companys help during an accident. ask them these questions. theres no reason to hire an attorney of your own. simply put the attorney works for the person/company paying the fee. thus nate should have an attorney of his own not just one that the insurance company pays for. while you are correct i doubt that he will really need one or that one would do him any good. -- if at first you dont succeed youre not cut out for skydiving .
