  1. I Thought this post was deleted. WOW some good reactions and Bad. I am a local up there and did everything right. This guy was sooo out of line I almost called the CO, But I did tell the guy who owns the main road/ he's a friend of mine. Fisky sorry I didn't get back to you as I stated I thought the thread got deleted it was just moved. PM me again,
  2. So this is my story on LOW today. We get bait, buy a road pass from a resort (They Rocked by the way) and we embark to the lake with a small SUV and towing a fish Otter fish house on a small trailer. We go all the way to approx. 30 ft and take a left on a plowed finger road with Red fish houses and go all the way to the end of the plowed road and here's where the story gets interesting. I drill 4 holes and move the portable into position. I suddenly see a vehicle come hauling silly-me down the plowed road and the vehicle comes to a skid a this guy jumps out and says "I didn't plow this road for you guys to come and park here!" my immediate reply was "Are you saying we cant fish here?" his reply was "I will get my plow truck and plow you in!" He gets back in his vehicle and tears off in a frenzy. I look at my buddy and say should we move and he says...F him. we start to fish and the bite is immediate so we continue to fish and all of a sudden we see 2 wheel houses come down the plowed road and who shows up chewing there punkers the Road Nazi. this guy reads them the same riot act he read us. We were rolling in laughter (after a couple beers and many nice fish) This guy has serious problem with anyone driving down his road off of Adrians Road. We finished up shortly there after and packed it in only to find the "Road Nazi" guarding his finger road and giving us a look like he wanted to kill us.
  3. How long does your SM Lazer blades last you?

    10 yrs on mine does require some down pressure though. Maybe its time for a new set?
  4. 3.8 V6 Serpentine belt replacement

    I removed the front passenger wheel & the wheel well. The 18mm nut came off easily and the stud turned right out with a 5/32 12 point closed end wrench over the female Torx end on the stud. The spacer was a little difficult to remove due to the fact there is a crankshaft sensor wire harness hugged up next to it but it came out. Took off the old belt & Intalled the new. Put it all back together about a 40 min job. Thanks for the tips Airjer.
  5. 2004 Silverado Coolant Leak

    On my 03 it was just the seals leaking, very common. The whole job takes about 2.5 hrs to complete.
  6. Do I really have to take the motor mount all the way off to get the old belt out and the new belt in? I've heard there's a shortcut? Anyone have any experience with this one?
  7. 6.0 fuel mileage?

    I have an 03 Silverado HD1500 w/6.0 120m and average is 11.2 around town 14 Hwy. Towing heavy loads (28ft Sportcraft) 10 mpg @ 4 bucks a gallon get a 5.3 unless your buying a truck to tow something. I have never had any serious problems with my 6.0 great engine!
  8. 03 Silverado Charging System

    Jeffreyd, That's got to be the culprit. It's working but, just not how it should, I did not notice if there was any corrosion on the cables, It was too cold out. I did some investigating online, I did get a Re-man... a new Alt. goes for $250
  9. 03 Silverado Charging System

    Deep I believe I purchased a new alternator... the N guy never said anything about re-man and I thought $230 was pretty steep, but considering the location I was lucky to get one period. I did get the $30 AAA discount yeah! I will clean the connections today. Thanks
  10. On a recent road trip to my favorite fishing destination my 03 Siverado(120,000m)I had a problem. Got to the lake just fine, woke up to go fishing and the truck was dead no power. put it on the battery charger for awhile, nothing. Replaced battery $100 Truck starts but I immediatly noticed on the Volt meter it was discharging (below 14) lights go dim at stops. I install new Alternator $200. Truck seems to work good now (got me home) but what I am still worried about is it seems to still be discharging intermitantly. The original Battery turned out to be just fine under load test w/full charge. Had no resources to actually check the original Alt. I dont really think I have fixed the actual problem. Any one know if I have overlooked something?
  11. Live life to it's fullest.

    Bump to the Top!
  12. We are still hunting until the 28th, but only one problem... We are not seeing any deer. Not even on our trail cams. Opening weekend we saw quite a few deer and harvested 2 but since then, the deer doing a good job of staying out of sight. So why would there be unlimited management permits available if there's not a deer behind every tree?
  13. Bonus Permits for Season B

    Only within area 601
  14. How scent free...

    The Biggest Buck I have ever shot, was taken after having a juicy cheeseburger in town that was covered in onions and I slipped back into the stand, lite up a smoke and all I saw were antlers coming through the woods, he never even knew I was there....even a blind squirrel finds a nut once in awhile.
  15. 2004 Silverado "Service 4wd" Message

    Great! So now I have 2 problems, because my dash has gone completely blank a couple times with no function of any gauges but they did come back after turning the ignition on and off a couple times. So to fix the "service 4 wheel drive" problem I need to have it diagnosed by the dealer again is what I'm hearing.
