Whats a guy to do it seem that when I mentioned the trucks by there names we run in to trouble. I think its just the nature of the beast of upper red lake. The red baron just left here on a flat bed as the tranny is not working right after 2 rebuilds. I have not even gave it a good work out Question Blue thunder has some bolts that are sheared off and one that is stripped all holding on the left side of the plow. We still have utah and california to move so will be see what I can do with blue thunder in a minute. The greek had a wheel come off his ford and I have not nicked name that truck as of yet. the dodge truck lost drive the second day on the lake. The little ered truck that could has a worn out cluth but I will still drive it on the warmer day suntill it will not go into gear. Don may be bringing me another truck so we will see if that pans out. Gotta go lay under the truck now Crying or Very sad

Yes I learned from the best slow and patiant. Take your time don't be in a hurry. It 's just the nature of the beast we put these trucks through the ringer and I care about then enough to give them names. It can be so brutal out there its hard to explain.

Cookie, sure hope your luck turns around with your trucks. My plow truck takes a lot of maintenance and TLC when possible. My opinion is a little care and a little extra time and it'll make me a dime. (Instead costing me a fortune if I ignore it.)

You'll have to name the Greeks truck 3-Wheeler or 3x4 since his wheel fell off Laughing

Good luck!

Buck

Hey Buck thanks for the laugh . Three wheel. I like it. Three wheels clutch is not doing so well and I do not expect it to make it through the winter, Blue thunders plow is all bolted back together and ready for round two. The red baron is at the shop and we may see it towards the end of next week but we will see.

I think you should bolt up a plow to that dark colored suburban. I'm sure Greek won't mind.

Cookie - with all the trouble you have had keeping Blue Thunder running over the years, maybe you should rename it "Blue Blunder" Smile

Blue thunder has worked his tail off and is still a great truck, They take a beating out there. It be great to have a newer truck but atleast I can repair most things on blue thunder where as newer trucks need to go to a dealer or mechanic.
