    Oh. We also pulled the flasher unit from under the dash and fixed it as the hazards or turn signals were not flashing. Turns out it’s a common problem for the contacts on the mechanical flasher to stick so we popped it apart and took some 2000 grit to them like a set of points and it works great now. That saved $128. It’s this thing under the steering wheel.

    Yeah, I stay busy. LOL

    My truck is sitting outside with the block heater plugged in. She failed to start a while ago at 20 F. I think I may have a glow plug issue. It didn’t even cough after a few cycles of the glow plugs. So I got plenty to do to it over the winter. Stay tuned, that’s about to get going again too.
