How are your trucks?

Heck I love my Fords. The 7.3 has a 4 inch turbo back exhaust, six position chip, and an intake. With a built trans, hopefully this summer it will get stage two injectors, but thats to be determined, as I have other things to spend that kind of money on haha.

Hows your twin beam holding up with the plow? Tell me about the intake, exhaust you have and the tranny work you did?

Whats been going on lately, lots of plowing. A few problems with our Blizzard Speedwing, lots of stuff.

Went up north too this weekend, this is a friends sled and 4runner. Drove 385km, 385km back, and 100km up there and I still have a 1/4 tank left.

New goodies for my 7.3, 4" turbo back, 5" MBRP tip, DIY AFE intake, and tow mirrors. Turbo sounds awesome, and the rumble is a little stronger.

I never even found out, we had the guy called in to fix it and I was in such a rush to keep things clear that I never even asked. My dad dealt with the mechanic so I'll have to take a look at the bill. The skid has 150 hours now, so the dealer was pretty good with helping out especially during a storm.

I could here a squeak in a belt like it was wet. I don't know if the tension wasn't right and it was causing the motor lose and then regain the load.

The drive belt on the 205 was squeaking/whining because it wasn't tight enough, so we were smelling burnt rubber. Adjusted the drive belt tensioner and it was OK. I had a hunch but we've never done anything to that machine because it has such low hours so I don't know what I'm looking for inside that tight little engine compartment.

We have done one oil change I think, it has been very good other than this issue!
