Lol. I?m heading to Idaho little after Christmas to look into some work opportunities and see family. I love my job here because of the career opportunities but I just can?t on good conscious stay in this state much longer.

Got the new engine oil cooler installed last night. Everything went well. 15 year old original cooler looked perfect inside, o-rings were decent but aged and starting to harden. The extra $220 for the cooler sucks, but oh well, it was no more work than replacing the O-rings, and a switch to ELC was on the list so I just did it all at once.

Flushed the coolant with a couple rounds of soft water, then a couple rounds of distilled water, Running the engine each time with it warmed-up enough to circulate. Draining 5 gallons each time through that 1/4" radiator drain sucked, was at it 'till midnight, lol.

I have no idea if this Ford Gold coolant was original, if it ever had been tested or SCA's added, but I couldn't find a bit of corrosion or funk in anything coolant-related I had apart.

Glad you got her done, you really should have pulled the block plugs. Even doing that it's hard to get everything out.

Noticed that for a while my fuel gauge seems to read more than is in there, but today it went up to full when I know there was about 1/4-1/3 tank of fuel left. I kept looking down and saw it go up until it read full. Is that showing a short or something broken? I can't remember if these fuel gauges go *fuller* via more resistance. At first I thought the float was ticking, but since today I know that isn't the issue. Relay, maybe?

Now I've got this and either my block heater of the block heater cord is snafu'ed. All right before hunting.

Donít know if you guys ever heard of VDO gauges but they are some cheap gauges lol. I figured my cts2 reading my transmission temperature was ways off.

I always wanted to fix the mechanical gauge. Ordered a new autometer #2253 sensor and replaced the VDO sensor. Minute I turned the truck on, it went to 200f - works! (Truck was warmed up prior to install). CTS2 was at 165-175. I. Sure if I hooked up the actual mechanical sensor made for the cts2, it would be just as accurate but that damn setup is expensive! $15 was all it cost me for the new sensor lol! Yay!

Decided to splurge on new batteries (2x DieHard AGM 775CCA). I couldn't find any AGMs with higher CCAs and since OEM was 750CCA, I'm hoping these will suffice.

With solar on AGM batts, I'm hoping to have about 8-10 years of life from them.
