  1. In addition, you might call Oliver and have them send you a pint of their resin, that way you will start off with a good match. You can use any polyester resin hardener once you get the resin. Steve
  2. Make 100% certain your repair material is a good color match. There are pigment kits for polyester resin, but use care, you can easily end up with a muddy grey. Be certain to check your color match after drying is complete before moving on to the actual repair. In the past I have repaired gel coat to an acceptable level by spreading a small amount of resin directly into the damaged area, then lay a piece of Saran Wrap over the material and carefully spread out to fill the area and blend into the adjacent area. After the material sets up you can peel away the plastic wrap. Your repair
  3. Might as well add a 1 pound can of Timken wheel bearing grease to that order. Timken GR224TUB.....$6.99 Steve
  4. Great information..... I would like confirmation on if the inner bearing and outer bearing on each hub are the same. My reason for asking is that in the past I have changed out bearings on axles that are a different size between inner/outer. I have not serviced the bearings on my LE 2 yet, but plan on it for this season. Thanks in advance. Steve
  5. I have that carrier option on my Oliver. It is extremely well built and constructed...not an off the shelf item at all. Just looking at the metal thickness, weld quality, and overall construction, one can see it is a quality designed and built item. The big issue with the carrier is the access to the spare, as the tolerance is so tight on the construction that it can (an does) bind when pulling the pins and trying to slide the carrier rearward to gain access to the spare. I found it necessary to remove my carrier and rework it a bit. Unless that carrier is mounted on a perfectly flat
  6. I went thorough this when I purchased my f-250 Superduty. Tire size and axle ratios are pretty well narrowed down by the options you select. My suggestion is to go to the Ford site and build your truck online. Start by selecting the option you want and your choices will be narrowed down, if not eliminated. Tire size is mostly determined by suspension, springs, wheel, cab and bed length. There was an option on my truck to select the weight rating as well. Selecting your known or most desired options will narrow down your tire size and axle ratios pretty fast. stev R.
  7. I have never been a supporter or trailer tire rotation, as we usually do on a motor vehicle. Tire balance is necessary I believe for several reasons. The primary reason to rotate is to maintain equal tire wear, so they all wear the same. The big contributors to tire wear are driving force (the power transferred to the wheels to push the vehicle), turning and cornering (front wheels where wear is caused by turning right or left), and tire load (weight distribution). Most tires on a trailer will “age” out of use long before they ever wear out the tire tread. Since a trailer tire see’s l
  8. Thanks Bill, I applied that body side chrome trim myself, and it is not all that difficult. Just need tape to stretch a straight line, wax cleaner, and a careful eye. I had it on my previous 2001 Dodge Ram diesel and enjoyed the look. Are you implying that the dressing on the running boards will cause your foot to slip? I don’t dress the running boards at all....but never thought of losing traction. Good tip, thanks. Steve R.
  9. For what it is worth, I bought a Ford F-250, XLT 2019 model. In doing my research I found a huge price difference between the XLT and their top of the line model. A few options brings the XLT up to a very well equipped vehicle for a reasonable cost. I found a 6.7 diesel with the suspension upgrades and nice trim options I wanted...and even preferred over the top of the line models. You can add the chrome upgrade option, trailer towing package, 4 door, bucket seats, large nav screen, and a number of other features and still be 20,000 under the top of the line models. one thing to a
  10. I could suggest Johnson Creek on Lake of the Pones in NE Texas. Lots of green and trees. The corp of engineers manages several very nice camp grounds around the lake. Most sites have water front access and are full generally around the big holidays. They all have boat ramps and beach areas. I live on the lake just across the bay from the Johnson Creek campsite. Very beautiful, clean, safe, and low cost. There are a number of smaller towns near and Longview is about 30 miles away (pop about 80,000). you should be able to find out much more online. The lake is about 20 miles lon
