If it's not broken Don't Fix It!
There is a place in PA that is due East of NJ: 40°34'28.0"N 75°08'15.4"W
This is only because the ones making the state lines were drunk at the time...

I tightened up the steering gear box a little more on my V8 Ranger, and then followed dad to the field to drop off a tractor. I let him drive it on the way back. He was smiling pretty big. It surprised him how fast it was and he never even went much over 1/2 throttle. lol

It confirmed what I already knew. Almost no one can drive my truck right except me.

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.

There's a town here in SC called "Due West".

It's funny you say that; I can always tell when someone has had a Ranger vs. those that haven't when they drive mine.

Heck yeah, here too! The Ranger is about 3100lbs and pretty high, and cruising 75-80mph this morning it was blowing me around pretty good.

Yeah. Got down to 50 degrees here last night. Had to close the windows when I woke up this morning. Put a long sleeve shirt on to work outside in the wind. Fall will be here before ya know it.

Sounds like a clever euphemism to me...

There's probably an ointment for that.

Anyway, noticed the carbon knock is back. Time for the PM3 smoke show again.

I was thinking more along the lines of - after the V8 swap the clutch can be touchy compared to a lot of other vehicles, and the throttle is touchy as well. Dad killed it twice trying to back out of the field entrance before he decided to just use the field to turn around. lol
