I don’t know about you, but as a Canadian I’ve always loved the Canadian Tire Christmas commercials.
Bam! Stubby Bob goes big-time in this episode of Roadkill, presented by Dodge. In episode 44 of Roadkill, Mike Finnegan and David Freiburger took a 1950 Ford F6 dump truck and shortened the wheelbase to just 102 inches so it would look freaky-cool—but the truck wasn’t road trip–ready by the end of the show. This time, the truck is transformed by a supercharged big-block Chevy in the back with a Gearstar 4L80E transmission and a V-drive from a boat—all set up like a ’60s dragstrip exhibition wheelstander. But as the buildup continues, the big question is whether the weight balance and the massive dualie tires will really allow the truck to jerk the wheels off the pavement or not. The answer is some action you can’t miss. Roadkill is supported by Optima Batteries, CRC Industries, Lincoln Tech, Cooper Tire, Pioneer, and Jegs! We also thank Weiand, Gearstar, and Slims Fab Farm for help with parts for this episode.

I was also having an issue where a piece of ice would keep my primary air tank from airing up. I would be driving down the road and I would slow down for an off ramp or school bus and the primary air tank would not air up. I put my old thinkin’ cap on and determined that I needed to do the same thing between the compressor and the air tanks. This worked too.
The best thing to do is drain the water out daily during the summer and change your air dryer filter on a regular basis.
Anyway, hope this helps someone.
Every year thousands of water pumps are replaced because the engine is overheating, but haven’t been tested. You can test many water pumps in a few minutes with the right tools and save hundreds of dollars and downtime.
