    So it begins, My Gen 5 summer 2018 conversion, Outfront Style

    I'm not sticking my finger in your turbo.
  4. So, we are getting ready to start up an engine (Detroit Diesel) that we just rebuilt. I am asking one of my guys to keep a look out and shut it down if needed. I have to go up into the flybridge to turn on ignitions and start them up. My guy says, give me a few minuets to get into position. I ask why, what are you doing? He then tells me he is going to put his fingers into both turbos. He is going to keep the compressor wheels from turning while the engine builds oil pressure. Then he will release. Holy Chit!!!! I stop where we are at. I call him out of the engine room and we go for a walk on the docks to talk about this and how this is not what we do and how on earth he came up with this idea.

Make what you do count by giving of yourself to the people or causes that are most important to you. 85. Perform small acts of kindness.

Work on creating an inner circle of people that you resonate with and learn from. 91. Be your own coach. If you wait until you are ready, you will be waiting for the rest of your life. Take risks and earn respect. 92. Don't be a martyr. Don't do anything that does not feel good or sound good; remember, respect is earned by authenticity. 93. Keep the naysayers in your life away from your dreams. You may even want to exclude negative people from your life completely. 94. Identify the yes-sayers in your life and keep them close. Rely on the people who believe in you and are unafraid to tell you the truth. 95. Always say please and thank you. Graciousness and good manners put people at ease. 96. Make a list of the things you can't live with and the things you can't live without. Keep the list focused on the essentials and review it often. 97. Count your blessings. Celebrate accomplishments and be grateful for all that you have. 98. Be who you are behind closed doors. A measure of who you are is exposed when no one is watching. 99. Be fully present each moment. If you stay present completely to the moments as they pass, you live them more richly. When you can gain the respect you deserve, the confidence you need to lead successfully, and the ability to connect well with others, you'll be well on your way to leading a meaningful life.

    Nothing better than having Glamis to yourself

    If the trailer is missing registration, plate or expired it will be cited and towed. Otherwise its not a problem. Went thru this exact same scenario last year with @Yarder 's trailer.

    Planning on ordering 2018 2500 HD LTZ

    Looks good
  10. It's time and after some research it seems the new model bugs (2017) have been worked out. Need some opinions from the masses. Plans: Lift 3-4 inches. Is Cognito the way to go? Wheels and tires. 33-34 overall. Any cutting of the body or bumper needed with this new model? Amp retractable steps. This still a good choice? Then the shocks. Fox or king for the look and feel. Truck can be ordered this weekend. Built and delivered in 8 weeks or less. I've never lifted a truck and don't own any flat billed hats so would appreciate any guidance. I also don't want to bring a ladder or step stool to get in my truck. That's why I'm limiting the lift to three inch. Should provide a clean look and function. LMK. Thanks.

    Put your fingers in the turbo???????????????

    Indeed, I couldn't argue as to why he wanted to do it.

    Put your fingers in the turbo???????????????

    His reply, His previous employer instructed him to do that. He says he has done this many time. I laughed as I know his previous boss. I trained him too. I have never even considered such a task let alone will I allow or condone this. All of my staff is trained to pre lube the oil system and even if its just a turbo replacement we pre lube the turbo.
  14. Time change everyone. Fall back. Hate it. Flame on. Oh well, back on topic Helping on the sandrail again. Sunday prep for the departure to Glamis later in the week. You all have fun and be safe.

    CV grease

    I ran the redline cv grease last year with new grey area race prepped 930 cv's. Used a grease needle mid season added 1/4 tube to each cv. Full tear down service this summer. Grease liquified a little with red drips from the boots when pulled back but to my surprise.... All 4 cv's were still well lubed, showed no wear from lack of lube, and have cleaned and repacked with new redline cv grease. YMMV Subi 450 hp mendi 2d
