Here is the reason I missed a post the other day!
This ridiculous little piece of plastic broke making my truck useless! It took longer than expected to fix the problem because I didn’t know this was the problem. The piece is a quick disconnect for one of the coolant lines going to the heater core. The connection is in a hard to get to spot.
Back where the flashlight is shining the hose on the right is where the piece was, I thought the hose was leaking so I replaced it, but every time I messed with it the leak got worst until finally the piece broke. Sometimes that is how it is, gotta break it worst to find out what is wrong. Being a homesteader involves doing a lot of work that does not necessarily directly involve produce or live stock. I needed the truck to do some work at the office and to get hay for the horses, no time for a down truck!
No time for a down truck means working on things when you don’t want to, sometimes you just have to lay down on the engine and try and get comfortable.
