    I'm not doing so good -- the instrustions decal on the backside of the blade shows signs of initial peeling at the very top. I hope this won't affect the remainder of the plowing season. I have two more driveways to do today with more this weekend if the forcast holds true. I can't afford to have a downed plow because of a peeling decal! :rolleyes:

    I can remember that decal rusting off in big sheets with my 97 fisher 8 ' . Fisher had a steel vendor problem and STOOD behind their product and replaced the moldboard

    Roger Dodger, use some duct tape on that decal. Should hold until you can get back in.:cool:

    Lets see

    Chevy 3500 is making a weird very loud clunking noise

    Old GMC batteries won't hold a charge

    Dodge flatbed doesn't want to run right

    Bobcat ran out of diesel

    Small engine fire on Dodge flatbed but that is what happens when you spray too much starter fluid and gas while startin the truck.

    So actually this was one of the better storms! i know thats sad...

    I lost the alternator at 5 in the morning. The worst thing is that I replaced it the Saturday before the storm. I also had some idiot snowblowing into the street and a piece of ice cracked my windshield.

    Bwhite, your central axle disconnect may be the casue its got a vacuum housing on it,on the right side,ir more than liekly your u joint may be bad in the Rf side,The spider gears turn like crazy in 2wd,as the drivers side front axle spins the spiders,the pass side free wheels backwards,and the carrier/front driveshaft dont move at all.
