  3. There are no less than 7 rigs at my brother's place. Only two anywhere close to being on the road. So very close, but not quite. Sigh... I'd better get to it and at it!

    Coffee Night

  5. Definitely! The new road/trail itself may peter out quickly, I don't know. I only went a couple hundred metres on foot, mostly walking a very small dog. But it was heading towards another road. There are just so many interesting roads/trails in there that we haven't been on in ages. And a few that we haven't. And maybe some more new ones I don't know about! If someone will give me a ride, I'll supply the 'intelligence' (I use that term loosely, lol). We may start off of the Pockwock Road and end up in Ellershouse........... So late yesterday I 'brought up' the detailed map I have of the area. And started fixing it up. It goes up and over as far as most of the west Panuke Lake trail 'Big Jones'. I am fixing that up as well. AND it covers where you folks went last February(?) at the end of the 101 service road. And I'm not forgetting the new, as yet untested, hill climb I found in Rocky Myra this spring. Sooo many trails to run.......!
  6. ooh sounds interesting is worthy of a monthly club run?
  7. Was out for a little hike/drive on Sunday. Off of Hwy 103's new 'Ingramport' exit. Found an interesting new 'trail'. It looks more like a swath cut for a new road. And totally drivable. Although my rig won't be ready, I'd be willing to 'Ride 'n Guide' a run through here and some other old trails in the Bowater area. I know the area well enough. Maybe even cross the stream that we crossed when Matt Brunet had the transmission trouble. LOTS of interesting trails! What say you - Jay, Dave, etc?
  8. Earlier
  9. We (site) are back. Went down around 11:30 with the power. Just got restored about 15 minutes ago.
  10. Hasn't really been bad in Elmsdale at all yet. We still have power.
  11. How is everybody holding up? Winds are picking up in Sackville. Rain heavy and sideways!

    Coffee Night

    Tom Wood Jason Dye Where's coffee this week? Since Lady Hammond isn't on the regular roto, I'm confused! lol Middle Sackville? Thanks!
  15. I changed the starter and the front passenger side hub. Man, it turns over twice as fast than it ever has, and the slight shimmy I had on the highway is now gone. That hub was really loose!
  16. Coffee this week is Thursday 7pm at the Lady Hammond Tims (Due to weather), 6034 Lady Hammond Rd, Halifax, NS B3K 2R6 Rolling schedule; .Burnside Tim Hortons - 15 Akerley Blvd, Dartmouth, NS B3B 1J6 .Bayers Lake Tim Hortons - 5 Lakelands Blvd, Halifax, NS B3K 5L2 .Bedford Common Tim Hortons - 36 Verdi Dr, Bedford, NS B4A 0C2 .Fall River (winter) / Woodside (summer) . Middle Sackville Tim Hortons - 1624 Sackville Dr, Middle Sackville, NS B4E 3A8
  17. So no leaks at all today, but the starter did take a crap. I think it's been on its way out for some time now though as sometimes it would crank really slow, or it would take a couple of tries with the key for it to turn over. I'll get that along with the front hubs changed tomorrow, and hope all is good.
  18. I wondered that, so I ran it on jack stands, but I didn't see any run out. There was no leak on the drive into the city, and it would have been dripping pretty good before. I'll check again after the drive back out, and hopefully it'll be dry.
  19. Its possible your axle shaft is bent causing the leaks if no visible wear is present
  20. There was no visible wear on the shaft, but it is possible. It hasn't leaked yet, but it hasn't had any extended driving either. I have to drive into Halifax tomorrow morning, so I'll know then if it's leaking or not. Fingers crossed it wont!
  21. I can't picture what it looks like off hand. But if leaking is a consistent problem, the axle shaft is probably worn. Common problem I believe. You can by shaft sleeves....
  22. I'm glad I don't have any spare cash lying around, as this would probably make its way to my driveway.
  23. This weekend I finally changed the leaky drivers side rear axle seal and bearing. The last two that went in it were Timken (seals and bearings), and they both leaked. I'm trying Federal Mogul ones (even though the bearing says Timken) a try this time. I changed the diff oil while I was at it, and it did look like a bit of water might have gotten in, but it wasn't too bad. I wanted to change the t-case fluid since I've yet to change it, but I ran out of time.
  24. Trees do not care about the shape of your headlights
  25. And oh, the one in the yard may be a 62, basically the same except it has 4 rectangular headlights. I know, I know, the rounds are more classic....
  26. Good luck sir! I will be tackling mine in a couple of weeks,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, Installation. I THINK I have all of the correct parts...……..
