  1. 5.4 spark plug question

    I just did plugs on my 03 5.4, they werent too bad, had to take the fuel rail off the drivers side to get at the back ones. Get yourself at least 1 long extension and a swivel extension. plus a couple short ones. I have fixed my exhaust manifold too and it took me 3 days working for a couple hours per night, but got that sucker out, its still on the easy out as a trophy of sorts. 180,000 now hoping for 250,000.
  2. Removing unwanted sound from recording

    theres not an easy way that anyone without knowledge of software like Audacity\Pro Tools can get rid of it. especially if it wasnt recorded using multiple mics or tracks. That said if you still want to try i would contact a recording studio, or a votec school that has an audio engineering program, or a place like IPR in mpls.
  3. Share good music

    More banter than music but pretty cool Ed talking about the Gophers win over Purdue and the Twins. Took this vid Sunday at Xcel, sorry I cut it off but had to stop filming to snap this pic:
  4. Pheasant breast recipes?

    last weekend i boiled, shredded\chopped some pheasant meat, into a bowl with a diced onion and a couple diced jalapanos, boiled up some spiral noodles, and mixed it all together with some mayo and ground cayanne, some greek seasoning and a dash salt and a bunch of pepper. Kind of like a old fashioned turkey salad you get at the store. Lots of compliments, also have made pheasant dip, same as above minus the noodles and instead of mayo use cream cheese.
  5. thermometer for smoker

    you can always check the accuracy of your door thermo by sticking the probe in some boiling water. Should read 212 degrees F.
  6. Thats the sucky part. We built a couple similar blinds on my buddies pond one year, they lasted about 3-5 years, the best pallets to use for the walkway are the ones with the smallest spacing between the boards and the thicker the wood the better. They last longer and dont snap when you step on them carrying a couple dozen dekes, your gun(s), coffee, etc.... Pretty comfy hunting for those 3-5 years though.
  7. Festival Palomino/ Trampled by Turtles

    I was there. Had a blast. Rain delay gave me a chance to play some blackjack and win back some of the beer money i already spent.
  8. Smooth\Dry riding boat

    I had that in mind. Probably going to stay with Aluminum or fix the ol' Crestliner. I got a good idea now of some glass models to keep an eye out for, maybe I'll get lucky and find a 18ft Warrior with a blown motor or something. You never know. I agree a 150 would be underpowered on a 20 ft glass boat, that and we want to fit the boat in the garage are 2 factors why we want to stay around the 18ft range
  9. Smooth\Dry riding boat

    Would you say that a 18 ft glass boat would ride better than a 20 ft Alum? Generally speaking of course.
  10. Smooth\Dry riding boat

    I think the Rangers are bit out of our price range. Another thing is we need to go a little shorter so the boat fits in the garage up there. Trailering isnt a big deal we just have to go about 1000 yards from the cabin to the lake. I'm looking at the Warrior 1800,1895, did Ranger ever make a model that size, we could maybe look into an older model, but most look to be in the 20 ft range. Like I said were keeping our current Etec 150 probably keeping our graphs and trolling motor all we need is the bare boat. Trying to find one around $15,000 give or take some.
  11. Smooth\Dry riding boat

    Looking to possibly upgrade the 89 Crestliner Phantom. What boats ride the best on bigger water like Kabetogama\Rainy. Looking for a drier ride as well. If we loose a little speed thats not a problem. The (Alumnacraft) dealer told us Alumnacraft cuts the waves better any truth to that? We'll be putting a Etec 150 on it so looking in the 18-20 ft range.
  12. wings

    Try boiling down some vinegar and sugar, probably about a 1/2 to 3/4 cup sugar to a cup or little more vinegar, maybe 1/4 to 1/2 cup water to dull the vinegar. I also put a tablespoon of sweet chili garlic sauce in there and when it coats the back of the spoon its done (takes about 20 min or so. Toss the fried wings in there to coat. Won a wing contest with this method.
  13. tree sap

    yeah I think they have it there, its a kit with some spray on detailer stuff and a little box of clay, but you could just use any clay and some windex. Or any parts store will have it. Mead the clay first to get it nice and plyable, the windex acts as a lubricant so the clay doesnt stick to the paint and clump off. Probably would not do it in direct sunlight or if paint is too hot as a precaution. Its the first step in detailing a car before appying the wax products. Rub your finger over your hood and feel all the contaminents, then claybar it and it feels like it just rolled off the assembly line.
  14. tree sap

    look up the clay bar process for detailing cars. Windex works good as a lubricant, just spray some on and rub the clay over the sap and it should come right off. Leaves the paint looking brand new.
  15. mnkota or motor guide

    We've had both. Right now we have a Minnkota Powerdrive V2. The first few years were good, the remote was AWESOME! then that quit working, replaced the motherboard, bought a foot pedal, worked for a couple more years, never did get the remote working again, now it wont work at all even with the foot pedal. The motorguide was a pretty decent motor but I questioned thier quality when the motor got slammed down once and the PLASTIC gear broke. Thats what made us switch. Its a crapshoot either way.
