He said that it is back in the emergency ward. It is better there than doing treage on the shoulder around Connell.

Sitting in my shop where I nursed it back too.  Still waiting on a tow to get it to mechanic, unless they plan on a house call.  I can't find anything loose.  And I don't want to mess up any codes it might have.  Time to start unloading coolers.  :bash:

Unloaded and waiting for a Monday tow back to mechanic.  Anyone want a spring bear tag?

Yeah, that's what we all thought, right?  :rolleyes:  Good news is I had enough time to get our frig repaired(been down for a week) and working this morning for the wife before I left.   :tup:
Rest of the news.........Had truck all loaded and trailer hooked.  Headed out at 11:00 this morning, made it 10 miles before I heard a pop and power dropped, and a engine light indicator came on.  Managed to turn around, limp home and park trailer and truck in shop.  Now I'm wondering just who I pissed off so bad.   :dunno:

Almost sounds like one of your CAC tubes popped off.

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

Or vacuum pump?  Leaking air.  Going to be my best guess, blew vacuum pump, but why?  Will be 3rd one since new.

This story just does not have an end.   :bdid:  Noise and loss of power was a 'loose' lifter and bent push rod.   :o :dunno:   Decided to replace vacuum pump before it gave up  it's last.  Anyone priced a new vacuum pump for the Jacobs brake?  Opted for a remanufactured from NAPA.  Installed and pick truck up this afternoon.  Didn't make it out of sight and exhaust brake wasn't working. 
Back to shop, pop the hood and look at freshly installed pump in two pieces.  Four bolts hand pulled out of aluminum housing.   :yike: :o.  Waiting for new pump to $how.  Operating costs seemed to have spiked in the last 5000 miles.

 :yeah:   :'(   :chuckle:  Just a teaser.  In round numbers, NAPA rebuilt vacuum pump is $300, new OEM vacuum pump is $1700 - 1800, which is more than the original Jacobs brake system cost installed.

So far it's cost 1/2 spring bear season, one month out of the 8 months I can access my property on Kelly Hill, my winter weight keeps going up because I haven't started my workout routine of cutting firewood/building fence/thinning timber, and a few $K in repairs.  Did I mention stress level, I'm in coasting mode now.   :dunno: ;)
