ATTN MEMBERS - READ ME UPDATED 20 APR 2021

Had a message passed on by Ken, who owns the board. They're still trying to get things straightened out for the board, but there's no estimated time for getting it fixed. Unfortunately I'm not much of an admin, I can take an axe to the spammers but don't really know how these things work. Ken advise...

Re: Project - 2003 Dodge Dakota, working name Frankentrucken

RIP to my dad, who passed away in November, a few days after I made the last post. The engine was cancelled and his truck was sold. I was really looking forward to that project. In other news, I've been made an admin on this board, and will do my best to de-spam it. Send me a PM if you find a spamme...

Re: 92 v6 standard swapping 98 454 automatic

Welcome. Having both trucks is a positive here. On the steering column, can't help there. You will probably need to use the 1998 steering column and get creative with the trim. The problem is the shifting linkages are different between the 92 and 98. You can use a floor shifter for this, but a floor...

Re: ATTN: MAJOR LOGIN ISSUES

They did something this week. I was able to do the "forgot password" and get my account back on. Unfortunately it's still a spam sandwich around here.

Re: Project - 2003 Dodge Dakota, working name Frankentrucken

For what it's worth, since the board has been acquired by Hormel since the software update, I'll post up an update in the hopes that a gearhead will see this before the board crashes into oblivion. So far, no luck in getting anything done on the truck itself. However, I still have hopes that I can f...

So has anyone else noticed that since the server upgrade, we've become the global warehouse for Hormel?

Install an electric fan, 2008 Colorado

OK, my fan is working now. Sorry, no pictures, while it's working pretty well I'm kind of ashamed at the build quality. This is a work truck, so my only care is does it work, not how does it look and it looks horrible. Anyway, since the information is kind of scattered and hard to put together, I de...

Re: Fix a fan shroud

Yup, visited a salvage yard and cannibalized a TrailBlazer with the correct computer in it, so I now have a cache of E67 wires. The plugs are shot though, as they'd been in direct sunlight for who knows how long. Anyway, it ran great in the test run. When I direct connect the relay control to power ...

Massive secondaries and fuel injection

Probably nobody remembers this, but a long time ago I complained on this board about how with fuel injection, you no longer got the sound of the massive secondaries opening up on a 4 barrel carb, and how nice it would be if there was a way to run a pair of throttle bodies so that one would run for c...

Re: NEW SERVER FOR THE PPE GM PERFORMANCE FORUM!

Assuming this is the place to report problems with the new server. Even when I check the "remember me" box, I keep getting logged out. The old forum never logged me out, and other forums using the same software don't log me out. This one, if I close the window, I'm gone. Can this be corrected? Would...

Re: Who's got some Investment Ideas?

Bailed out of AAL at 20 and a bit. Was making me nervous, especially after the drop from the 15 I bought at to 9 after Buffet sold out.

Stupid GM, changed the pins between the Gen3 and Gen4 computers. The old ones were round, new ones are square. Now my cache of computer pins is worthless, and my truck is sitting out there needing one stinking wire connected before the fans will run. Parts run tomorrow.

I wasn't able to find the 3M stuff locally, but was able to find JB Weldit (JB) plastic bonder. Their plastic bonding stuff is probably fine for fixing cracks or attaching patches together but it's no good for filling holes as itself as it's way too runny going on. It also gets very hot while curing...

Thanks, I'll look into those and advise the final outcome. I'm also looking at a few other options that will cost money, but want to try this first.

Install an electric fan, 2008 Colorado

The fan clutch on my 2008 Colorado went out, and I have a set of factory fans off a 2007 Silverado. I've cut one of the fans off the Silverado assembly, and it fits pretty nicely inside the fan hole on the Colorado fan shroud. But here I need some advice - What should I use to permanently attach the...

There are a lot of off-road shops around here, but most of them are socket jockeys. If you can't do it with a pre-engineered bolt-on kit, they can't handle it. I'll add them to the search though, you never know.

This sucks. I had worked up an agreement with a guy to redo my truck's suspension. After several months of being put off, he decided that he's getting out of the business and is going to build cars to sell instead of doing work for others. I'm not out any money, we only got as far as he looked at th...

Move the electronics from the old gas body to the new one? It worked on the original body, should work on the new one.

I saw the watermarks, they were there. They weren't very transparent, and made it hard to see what was on the pictures. They aren't there now. Probably a Photobucket thing. I wouldn't worry about it.
