got my tensioner pulley replaced and a green back belt put on. no more squeaky belt.

replaced my A/C control lights, kinda nice not having that giant black space in the center of the dash anymore at night.

also new blower motor. original had a dead spot and sometimes wouldn't turn on unless you gave it a little love tap with your foot.

now to just get out there and run my valves

last week i did #4 injector and so far ( knock on wood) the truck is running way better. no more miss and smoke on start up.

I made a few sets of cam bolt eliminators from 304 stainless and installed one set in my truck.

hi i have a large vmc/ cnc mill and a large slant bed cnc lathe. I used a bunch of different tools. Took about 4 hours to write the programs and make a jig to hold it in the mill. I got it down to about 5 mins each after the 4 hours screwing around, dam i wish i have a 4 axis lathe with live tools.

Do those green back belts stop the little chirp when you shutdown? Mine kinda comes and goes...

OK, the reason I asked is two places I worked did some stainless work, and it was always very hard on the tooling esp the stuff that was half hard or full hard they called it. I just remember it being hard to drill and use a counter sink on it even... it was tough to machine. So I was wondering if you used solid carbide end mills.

hi stainless is not bad to cut but you must have the speeds and feeds and depth of cut correct or it can be hard on cutters. I try to use insert cutters most of the time as the cutter wears i can just change the insert, i don't have to buy new or regrind. I use a solid carbide end mill for the last .020 so the end mill will last much longer.

Yes mine stopped it. Now it's silent on shut down. Not that the chirp bothered me. I just run green backs on everything I can cause it's a lot stronger and thicker belt.

Do you have the dual climate control on your truck? If so how did you replace them cause when I did a quick search to fix mine it said I need to order the whole controller with new knobs and stuff

Hi you can change the bulbs on a dual zone control but you have to take it apart and solder the bulbs in I did mine. Also if your light shines green their is colour bulb caps on them.

At Pac-Nor barreling we had a Haas five axis. Talk about an amazing machine!
