New spare fuel pump from China - Joinhands jh-380500 . Weird name but a good deal - six bucks delivered!
Looks to be a good quality unit and comes with extra parts to adapt it to various cars. It looks like a drop-in installation for the Trailblazer fuel pump housing.
The stealership would charge $275 for their AC Delco.
 
You would have been better with an ACDelco or Bosch. Those China ones will last 6 miles or 6 minutes, whichever comes first. Been there.

GM has some parts that if installed at a dealer, it comes with lifetime warranty. look for a -W- or a * in the part number description.

water pumps, fuel pumps, some chassis parts, hub bearings, ac compressor, alternators to name a few.
 
Cell phone repeater for the cottage. Barely get one bar but with a yagi antenna, can pull 2 bars. Used to be abe to plug the antenna to our old phones but our current ones don't have a provision for that. Hopefully this will work.

Been thinking about getting one of these for my house. Most of the time the 1 or 2 bars I get are good enough, except for those few inconvenient times when they aren't :mad:

Is that one of those repeaters with an antenna inside?
 
No, it has a whip antenna that attaches to the repeater on one of the connectors. You could use another type like a ceiling mount or directional antenna instead. The other connector goes to the exterior yagi pointed to the cell tower. Talked with some techs at work and these things apparently do work if you can get a single bar.

we've got a cell repeater out at the office, had it for much of the last decade now, just the basic plastic box antenna on it, not a super pointy one like that, it was rendered basically pointless except for guest's once everyone in the office upgraded to phones that support wifi calling, we now have cell coverage over the whole building, not the one room.

I'm looking for something similar for the trailer. Being the (sometimes) cheap bastidge I am, my cell service is very cheap, relative to ATT / Vz (and works very well in the midwest / east, thank you).

However, out west, coverage is near non-existent, along with Canada, where you're roaming on their networks...very expensive, if you use it heavily.) Personally, I don't want to switch providers, unless I can get even *cheaper* service...LMAO. All about priorities... :wink:

My provider's nationwide presence should be getting quite the boost (no pun intended) once Sprint / T-Mobile finish up their merger business, based on T-Mob's prior network expansion when they gobbled up MetroPCS a few years earlier (e.g.; they did a very good job with that one)

At a minimum, I'd like to have access for GPS & data while driving via Google, some ability to plan routes for the next day with my laptop at night, and if available, plug my Roku in and catch up on the day's events (but I can keep abreast of news, etc., via radio / web, as needed)

Was exploring WeBoost, Wilson, etc., and came across mobile hotspots with TS9 antennae connectivity. Supposedly, they work even better than wi-fi range extender equipment. Will be exploring this further during the next couple of weeks.

@Mooseman - will chat with you about this system at the meet, if you've had time to evaluate by then.
 
Decided to get a soil tester, so I can try to figure out what needs to get put into the soil to help my lawn and trees. Needed a few more $$$ in order to get my $5 off Amazon purchase, so got some new swim shorts for the beach, and a scrubber with extendable handle which should make cleaning the tub/shower much more back friendly.

New locking tailgate handle assembly to replace the rusted non-locking one. If I have to replace it, I might as well upgrade it.

check out soil savy on Amazon 25 or 30 bucks and it gives you a total soil analysis or macro and micro nutrients.

Finally got my new set of tires. Friday afternoon I got my new set of 33x12.5x17 Mickey Thompson Mtz's. Will probably order my adapters and body lift within the next few days to be ready for the midwest tb meet. :woohoo:

@Home, tranny mount for the Voy from RA. I know these things can't last forever and with 170k miles on the truck I think it's due to get done. 20180802_201544.jpg

Two of my wheel adaptors came in from Mark MC. Still waiting on the other two and my body lift. Needless to say my 33’s did not fit with only 3 inches of lift. :dielaugh: Really need this stuff to come in so I’ll be ready for the meet

One day early from Amazon. Wheel bearing puller/installer set for the wife's car. Not bad for $100CAD.

Have gotten fed up with the bump feed spool for my string trimmer, and decided I wanted to try an alternative. Most options like this that I've seen say they won't work with electric models. This one says it fits Ryobi 40V electric models, which is what I have...

Comes with lines (not sure why they coil up the lines, so now they aren't straight when you put them on the head :rolleyes:) as well as blades for thicker brush.
