    Odd blower motor problem

    I don't have anything that shows where the teeth are aligned, but if you suspect you might be off, go ahead and adjust your switch by a tooth, and then see how it behaves. Depending on the change, you could try going a tooth in the other direction from the starting point. The HVAC controller...

    Odd blower motor problem

    I had something similar happen to me a few months ago, where my blower was inconsistently working. After back tracing and chasing voltage readings, turned out to be my ignition switch had gone bad. One of the "Run" connections inside it, is specific to the HVAC circuit. replaced that, and my...

    I've had to change my blades a few times as well, but usually it's when switching between bagging and mulching blades. I did run across a small section of steel pipe in some overgrown grass that stopped the blade on one side, but didn't damage it. My problem with changing them is my back gets...

    What did you do to your GMT today? [Part II]

    Yikes, I hope they are actually replacing the cable for you, charging that much. Instead of just getting the replacement bushing for under $20 and popping it back in place. 🙏

    Took advantage of the nice weather after work, and tinkered more with the filling station out back. Repositioned the blocks a bit, used the round pavers as bases after digging up the grass and compacting the dirt below. The added height of the extra 2 blocks looks like it will work out nicely...

    What came in your mail today?

    Pair of rain barrel downspout diverter kits. Many of the complaints were about the plastic spigots, and the knob breaking off. It does feel pretty light, and only takes a 360 degree turn. So I can see if you're thinking it should go farther, you can easily break it. Especially if there's a...

    What's the deal with E-Fans?

    :iagree: I tried this experiment and it lasted 1 weekend. Got a PCM of NC I6 fan shroud, got one of the strongest 16" Spal fans I could get. (since their kit comes with a 16" fan) A variable speed fan controller with AC trigger input. Also took the extra step to seal the 2 sides of the...

    Homelink Transmitter Issue

    The 2 aren't related. My EXT didn't come with homelink, but I added it from a junkyard pull. Just had to program the buttons as you'd expect, and it was good to go.

    This front end.. Custom?

    A couple of people have done this mod, I wanted to do it myself. You'd buy this aftermarket 06-09+ LT grille https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07LC2HM6Z/?tag=gmtnation-20 And then take your crossbar and cut the ends off to size. Fairly simple to do, then if you planned to keep a bumper cover, you'd...

    Honestly I was more concerned with the wood boards, and whether or not I should reinforce those in the center. It'll definitely be something I keep an eye on once I get everything setup. :yes:

    While game planning where I want to put my rain barrels and how to draw the water out of them, I was pretty sold on the idea of using a sprinkler pump, as I eventually will want to water new grass seed. But before that, and more often, I plan to use my tank sprayer to get/keep the weeds in...

    What did you do to your GMT today? [Part II]

    Made a run to Lowes and HF for a couple of things. Mainly 400 lbs of cinder block, for an idea with the rain barrels. Got some downspout brackets for a couple of spots i want to secure better, and a large heavy duty tarp for the compost pile. The blue ones get brittle after a summer's worth...

    Had been putting it off for a while, finally went and got my booster shot. More and more people I know are catching Omicron, and since this is FL, I'm guessing it's just a matter of time... :ugh Still dealing with this insurance battle. The bank keeps sending me letters about needing flood...

    Suitable stereo system replacement

    My 1st Android HU was made by Xtrons. Got it off Amazon. Pretty good unit, did everything I wanted. BT, download apps, GPS, and supported dual RCA camera inputs (I run a backup cam installed in the trailer hitch, as well as one at the top of the lift gate glass). Came with a dashcam, but...

    Sunday, fun day. Enjoying my last day of staycation, met up with a buddy at a sports bar to watch some football, catch up a bit, and grab lunch. My Bears won, his Bucs won, so we both left as happy campers. Should probably get to bed at a decent hour, so I'm fully recharged for whatever I...

    Also spending NYE solo. After getting the appliances in Wednesday, I tested the dishwasher Thursday, since my sister said she thought she nicked the drain hose while cutting the zip tie under her sink... Hmm. Ran it on the rinse cycle, sat there and watched it, and sure enough started...

    Why does the old battery in my TB keep dying?

    That's a head scratcher for sure. Having a near dead battery after 6 hours when it ran fine before... :confused: This is the battery monitor I got, the contacts go under the terminal screws for a somewhat permanent install, but they have some that clamp onto the terminals for a more portable...

    Replacement Floormats?

    I think it's probably just the way the fibers are laying down. When I think of how wear would look on the driver's mat, that distinctive heel mark comes to mind. Mine was an actual hole in the mat, and started grinding the carpet beneath it. :ugh:

    Why does the old battery in my TB keep dying?

    So as long as you drive the truck, it starts fine, but when it sits for long periods is when you notice the changes? If that's the case, then mine does this too. If I don't drive my EXT for 5 days to a week, it will crank noticeably slower than normal. Much more than a week, and sometimes it...

    New day, more manual labor. Picked up a Uhaul @ 9am and got to it. Tank was just over 1/2 full, and I knew I had an hour's drive ahead of me each way, so got some gas and filled it up. Made a stop on the way to my sister's house, found a CL ad for rain barrels, so I picked up a few. Plan to...

    :laugh: Appreciate it. The fridge side, the hinge just has play like it's not tight enough. May resort to putting a washer between the hinge and body, and hope that gives me the tightness needed. For the freezer side, that would probably require an epoxy repair, or likely replacing the whole...

    Although my sister has a new construction home, she doesn't like the black appliances and wanted to go with stainless. Against the advice of the family to leave well enough alone and focus on other things, she's committed and got her new stove and fridge today. As a result, she's giving me all...

    Headlight switch lighting 2003 Envoy

    Resistors are soldered to the underside of the PCB, so they're out of the way. Easy peasy. You can find various quantities of the typical colors. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B011E8T6ME/?tag=gmtnation-20

    Headlight switch lighting 2003 Envoy

    There are some LED assemblies that come with built in resistors, (small PCBs with SMDs on them) I've switched almost all of my interior LEDs to those instead. No more tedious math, or guesswork :twocents:

    Took advantage of the warm weather to get some yard work done. And no, I couldn't believe I was doing yard work in December either, but what can ya do? The weeds were getting a little ridiculous, so threw the bagger kit on the mower and got to it. Was able to a bit quicker since there wasn't...

    What did you do to your GMT today? [Part II]

    Back under the hood to tinker with my tranny cooler again. In hopes that my problem was simply not enough airflow because the cooler was basically sitting against the condenser, I wanted to space it out some. Ended up needing to bring it down just a bit, and closer to the center. Had to...
