Yes, truck is chocked and on house air, just got to get the wife up in the seat and step on the brake to see which valve it is coming from.. I probably put a seal in backwards or something stupid :)
Did you use lube on the orings? I did one and didn’t feel like walking down to the other shop to get some. Leaked like a sieve. Needless to say, I went and got the lube.

That will just be a learning experience if it is. No big deal.
Turn it over and try again. Glad to hear that you have house air hooked up. Makes troubleshooting so much easier.

Received this alternative to the FAN solenoid. I have been told this is confirmed an alternate to the unobtanium original. I haven't tried it, but keeping in my box of tools when I have a problem.. I believe you will need 2 quick lock connectors as well

Bonus, you can stack these with 1 air source to run anything else you might need to from a air source/electrical activation, IE Horn, ramps or other air operated type systems

M1078Man,

Would you be willing to give at parts list of what you bought to address your OLOD? I'm gonna go ahead and address the one on the M35A3.

Thanks,
SJ/JD

Today I spent a few hours reconfiguring my solar. With the additional two 210W panels, I look to go series-parallel, this will keep me in line with the MPPT EPEVER 4210AN thresholds.

After 1830-1845 and sunset, I plugged in the new panels and flipped the breaker. With only ambient sun, I saw 32V and 2 AMP, though I am expecting with full sun, about 40V and 20 AMPs, I think.. anyone out there smarter on this solar. here is what I have

2 panels 200W 20V
2 panels 210W 20V

with the SP are my estimates right?

once I have confirmed and I wont let the secret smoke out of the controller, will mount them down

TOday I spent some time under the hood, adjusting belts, changing fuel filters and installing the OLOD.20210930_093500.jpg

I think I found a problem, the bolts holding the support plate for the compressor and hyd pump were loose, after changing the filters and starting it, I saw movement in the assembly, I shut it down..tightened up the bolts and restarted, the vibration was gone

With all the oil and stuff from my OLOD I decided to purple power the engine bay..after getting her looking clean, I started it up to evap the water, thats when I noticed a seep of oil coming from the front case behind the bolt at the top of the case between compressor and case, and it appears to be a crack...............its plainfully obvious in the picture, but these eyes just saw oil

GUess its time to break out the TIG and see if it can be repaired. anyone know how much the front case is

Recently saw somewhere that had them offered as magnetics.
That way, you can have all the safety and attract as much attention as you need.

As a piece of magnetic material, if you need to sneak around in the woods they can easily be removed.

Looking for some suggestions on a wired real-time LTE GPS tracking system for Reis. I have found many, just looking for some expert opinions, anyone have any insider information.

I am leaning towards subscription type, however, free is good for me as well if there is such a thing

If you prefer not to post to the world, drop me a PM.
