    Re: Service 4WD light on 1999 Silverado

    Just ordered the correct switch for my 2000 model Z71. I've been worrying about this problem for 8 months now and figured it was the switch. We shall see, but I'd bet this fixes it.

    Re: Managing a gravel drive

    Glyphosate has got to be one of the cheapest chemicals out there right now. Get the generic 41-53% in at least a gallon size and you will be set for a while. Four ounces in a 2 gallon sprayer is a...

    Re: portable generator

    I have a Generac 4000xl I bought at Home Depot that I like a lot. No question that a Honda would likely be superior. However, with an empty tank it is rated at 98 lbs (I think). It's relatively...

    Don,

    Don't know if herbicides are an option for you personally or not, but there are some good ones that will take care of hydrilla. Some don't even require specialized application equipment. ...

    Re: Deadly Florida Cobra almost got me!

    Yep, I almost stepped on a hognose about a month ago on the edge of my yard. I didn't know I could levitate. Got some pictures of him too. They sure do make a big scary sound.

    I hurried him...
  6. Re: I need pond dredging and excavating ... and advice

    I think you should hire someone that specializes in pond repair. If they are capable of doing the other work, then fine, but don't hire a "dirt mover" to work on your pond or you might regret it. ...

    Re: A turtle is in my pond....

    Well, even if he's a snapping turtle, your fish are pretty safe. Most other turtles are omnivorous, and generally prefer vegetation to anything else. Of course, if you are feeding your fish, they...

    Re: muddy pond tips

    Your pH can vary, but what you really need to test is your alkalinity. If you have less than 20 ppm alkalinity, liming will boost it to help prevent excessive pH swings. Your extension agent...

    Re: muddy pond tips

    Get you a water sample and see if the turbidity settles. Use a tap water sample as a reference. If the water clears, it's biologically or mechanically induced. If it stays muddy, the clay is...

    I used an 80's model F150 with the carburated 300 motor and 5 speed a few times to pull an 18' aluminum boat. It was in our university fleet and that was what I was stuck with. It was completely...

    Well, a coworker got a Prius as a rental while his Tacoma was being worked on under warranty. Four of us piled in and went for a ride. Plenty of pep and all of the room any other compact car has. ...

    Re: chevy truck extended warranty

    No I haven't but I did check into it. Seems like the GM plan has two levels. The basic extended warranty doesn't include a lot of the cabin electrics and electronics. To cover those was an...

    Re: extended warranty

    $1200 for 18,000 more miles of coverage?!

    You're already covered to 36,000 miles, right?

    Surely you're getting close to that number after 3 years.

    Sounds steep to me.

    Re: Smooth bore .22

    I believe Marlin re-introduced a gun like that.

    Here is a link to some information: Marlin 25mg

    It's a bolt action. I seem to recall a 22 long rifle version too, but may be mistaken.

    I use a bread machine and it always comes out really good.

    Good ones can be had for under $50.

    Takes the savings (if any) out of the picture, but yum.

    You might look for a used bay boat. They generally are made of fiberglass with a fairly flat bottom and not a whole lot of fancies on the inside like...

    This might be a dumb question, but can these steel studs be used structurally, say in a small shed or outbuilding? I've never seen them and they sound pretty neat.

    I have that engine and it does not require premium gas. . . 87 octane is just fine according to the owners manual.
