  • RE: Any Mechanics?

    Jonathon if you have been on a wet gravel road with it double check that it isn’t caked in the wheel well or in your calipers. I had a similar issue several years ago and it took taking the wheel off and hitting everything with a good power wash to fix. Just a suggestion.

  • RE: Any Mechanics?

    For the price of a vehicle I keep them until I get my money’s worth. I like doing my own work when I can. I have been collecting tools since I was 16, only thing I wish I had is a lift. I put a plow on my trucks and it is hard on the vehicle, brakes and tranny’s get abused the most. A buddy of mine still has the first new truck he brought, 78 Ford, looks almost new, it has lived a charmed life.

    Joe Hell nice looking rig. In my area of the country the metal doesn’t look that good. We are the top area for putting salt down on the roads during winter. The cab of my last truck was rusting off the frame. I haven’t found a full size truck that doesn’t have a drinking problem, but they have gotten better over the years. I have a pretty good mechanic. He will talk me through some things I am having issues with and will even come out to the house. He gets my business and I treat him and his crew well. I do the things I can and let them do the rest.

    Jonathon definitely a fixer upper with potential. Heating and maintenance would be a challenge.

    Jonathon replacing the caliper, pads, rotor and bleed is maybe an hour job outside of a shop. As long as you don’t break anything. It should be an easy diagonals on those parts, if they are bad, not a guess. Spongey brake pedal or with fade is a possible sign of air in the brake lines or possibly old contaminated fluid. Brake fluid likes to absorb water, I usually flush my lines about every three years. A wheel bearing can be a little tougher to diagnose until it really gets bad or fails. You need time, tools, the willingness and as Dirty Harry stated a man must know his limitations.

    You got alot of good advice from folks so far. The best is buy a Ford, LOL. My last F-150 lasted me 25+yrs I am now on my second, but I do have a Toyota SUV.

  • RE: Liver Recipes

    Kidney pie. Liver/braunschweiger/pate’. I haven’t seen this since I was a kid, calves brains, I guess they fried them up with scrambled eggs. Then there is czarnina, it is a duck soup that is thickened with duck blood. Then there is all the blood sausages out there. I had some liver things living in Germany.

  • RE: Black Bear/ venison summer sausage

    Hog Pen good luck. I have seen some recipes using deer fat and I have tried some with both animals and I would go with pork fat. Deer was like eating sausage mage with a candle, the bear was like eating sausage made the a funky candle.

  • RE: Black Bear/ venison summer sausage

    Hog Pen I didn’t care for black bear fat from my bear, I would rather eat venison fat in my sausage. In my opinion I would go with pork fat, it is fairly neutral, has a creamy texture and blends well with the proteins. From my one bear I just didn’t enjoy the bear fat in the sausage. Venison is a bit more waxy than pork, but more neutral then bear. Just my opinion and experience.

  • RE: HELP SAVE BREAKFAST SAUSAGE

    GODUCKS you may need to add a bit more water/liquid before stuffing to make it flow a bit easier. Other than that you should be good to go.
