The only way to get exhaust bolts off without breaking them is an oxye-acetylene torch with a small tip , With the heat directed at the nut, not the exhaust stud. Do it any other way you will break one for sure and be pulling the manifold.
If you tried heat from a torch , your not using the right torch , or enough heat. enough heat, vise grips if you destroyed the bleeders. The correct tool if not. Heat the surrounding area not the bleeder. The small tip on an Oxy- acetylene torch set so you can direct the heat. Get it while its hot.
This is My 17 , Its the same Fisher set up that was on my 99 silverado, I keep updating , and painting, Mind you I don't do a lot of Plowing anymore , But at one time my account's numbered 30-35 residential . This last refit from my 11 to the 17, Side-plates were the same. just needed 1 wiring harness. I do the installs. I know mine does hang lower, but for me that does not justify the cost of new. Now if a v-plow would work on the 1/2 ton short box regular cab, that I would consider.
badge171 replied to drunkonunleaded's topic in 2014 - 2018 Chevy Silverado & GMC SierraNot sure what the 18's are using ,but my 17, I installed the Morimoto D5s 35w 5500k . I think I purchased on sale about 275$. As far as any big difference for me in brightness, distance, or quality of light.. NO-WAY worth the cash, my opinion. gota be a better choice out there.
Hello All , Looking for some opinions before I purchase. I have a 17 Silverado Shortbox , with the 18" wheel option, I live in the Northeast, I have a 7 1/2 Fisher plow, I don't do a lot of plowing , but I do a bit. My truck came with the Goodyear Wranglers , and I have always thought they were crap. I'm looking for a tire , a bit aggressive , M/S , I know its a pretty vague question but what's holding up for mileage? Traction in mud and snow and the ok on the pocket . Many thanks
Ya leave them plugs in 60-75k . then try to get them out. good luck with that. Lets see how much does a set of plugs cost compared to pulling the heads off, valve job, and machine work . Thinks me will service my truck every 25-30 k or so.
Tailor the truck to your needs, dial the engine to your needs. If your desert driving,towing uphill 0w-20 ,Just ain't gonna give you the protection your looking for. Millage Really Towing? 5w-30 for a starting point. . Any of these trucks showing pics of there Oil Pressure Gauges thinking they are accurate gauges , crazy ,not much better than old school dummy light.
badge171 replied to batman900's topic in 2014 - 2018 Chevy Silverado & GMC SierraPicked up the Morimotos for my 17, one went bad, they replaced no problem. Light output. My opinion not worth the cash! Little better yes, Headlight system compared to my 11, terrible.Has me guessing at night. tried adjusting, not much difference. . You will learn to live with it.
Back in the day, 70s-80s GM had a rear end additive, for posi-traction . The additive was a lube . As I remember couldn't have been more than 3 oz. bottle. Stopped the wheel lock up around turns, Just a thought
