Odd Jobs

I did a landscape job for a guy a few months back and as part of the deal he had us haul off about 3-4 yards of rock. I go to the guys house today to talk about more work he wants done and now he was a ten yard pile of rocks he has stacked up. My customer is in his mid 60's so I'm impressed he has done this much work.

At least this time I can back my 20' dump trailer right up to the pile and have my guys start chucking rocks like crazy. I estimate this to be a 25,000 pound stack of rocks.

That's a lot of rocks, nice free material though, hope you get an opportunity to put them to good use.

Water Pump

I started to hear some sporadic low pitch kind of hollow sounding noises coming from under the hood of my 09' Ram 3500. I noticed the water pump pulley had a little more back and forth movement going on then what was normal.

I have had pumps do the classic weep hole leaks to let you know the bearing are going and I've had pumps lock up which shredded the serpentine belt.

I decided to tackle this job myself and after about two hours I had Humpty Dumpty back together again. If you buy your water pumps from Cummins instead of Dodge you will pay about 1/3rd less. The pump from Cummins was $113.

It would have been a warranty repair but I wasn't going to jump through a bunch of hoops and put my DPF back on just for a water pump repair.

What's Wrong In This Picture

This trailer came with one feature that can be dangerous. Tell me what looks awry and I'll tell you what I'm upgrading that is a must for enclosed trailer guys.
