Re: O/T What A Productive Day

I put together my sand holder I put in the back of my truck (holds the sand bags between the wheelwells and won't let the bags launch through the back window).

I moved 7" of snow.

I cleaned out the barn.

I stuck a second battery in my truck and wired in (10 gauge) a 30amp isolator. I ran the wire through the engine harness from the starter to the driver's side below the hinge with a 25A fuse feeding the isolator. From there to the aux battery I ran a short 10 gauge piece. I ran a 4 gauge ground wire from the battery to the back side of the driver's side head. To "jumpstart" myself I'll have to use one of my jumper cables until I find a piece of 10' 2 gauge wire. I have to wire in a switch to activate the isolator but all I have left is rocker switches and I want a toggle switch.

I did all of this in 12 weather and 25mph wind.. and we got 3" of snow while I was bent over the fenders. My 100watt soldering gun didn't like soldering in that kind of weather, especially when soldering a 10 gauge western union together. Yeah, I'm oldschool.

Re: O/T What A Productive Day

Update, after i went running, my dad had driven the GMC around to see if it would over heat still. and he notice the power steering belt was loose. Well my steering isnt jerky anymore, my brakes perform better(thank you PowerBooster Brakes) and i think that it wont overheat anymore, cuz the fan wasnt spinning as fast as it should of been. I Also found the Block Heater Cord, and just in time for winter [img]images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img], no snow though...

Re: O/T What A Productive Day

A couple hacksaw blades would make a much nicer cut than a jigsaw. I used 3 or 4 hacksaw blades (gets to be too much work once they start getting dull) and a dremel tool to cut the hole in my dash.

Re: O/T What A Productive Day

jig saw works pretty good except for when you get into the other trimm with uneven surfaces and makes the blade bounce out of the peice and........ [img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]
