Nunya, you should tell people that you only change your oil once a year or it is false advertising... ;)

I change it twice a year thank you verry much and will end up pushing m fair weather one a little early since I pulled the filter for easier starter removal so I got my core ready for the new ones arrival

pulled the passenger shock and axle shaft in preparation for the new ones....started to take the starter off and found that I can't break the bolts loose with 3/8.....had to stop and go handle some business with my son.....came back home tired....bolted upper BJ back up and rolled her out of the garage.....passenger axle shaft came out easily....will take out starter tomorrow morning as well as the driver side axle shaft....

 

Tomorrow, new CV axles, shocks, upper BJs and starter!!!!! Nothing is gonna get in my way tomorrow!!!!!

I wish they gave tickets for exhaust around here... I live next to a cop who's got a straight-piped Dodge diesel that rattles windows. :/

 

I left the lights on... again. :doh: I'm considering re-wiring the headlight switch to the ignition... on the bright side, the check valve hasn't buzzed once since I WD'd it. :D

 

Also, Buckryp, dunno if I did it right, but I pulled out the upper valve of the EGR (don't remember offhand which is the EGR and which is the BPT), shot a little WD in there, and worked it around until it quit sticking... between that and patching the rotted-out hose that hooked it to the exhaust, the truck seemed to find a missing cojone or two. :) I didn't pull the other half, as it looked like a PITA...

got the starter out......holy sheit is that a gigantic PITA!!!!! two auto parts stores to get the starter.....store one says in their computer that they had the starter and 2 CV axles......they had neither....store number two had the starter so I got it and two upper BJs.....finally got home and ordered the CV axles from Rock Auto. Also, Fedex brought me my new Ranchos.....hopefully, in a few days she will be back on the road.....

it's an auto....I had the axle shaft out cuz I'm replacing both of them so I had a place to get a hand through.....and no on the oil filter...it didn't even hit on it, it was that frickity frackity bracket that kept getting hung on everything......I am too tired tonight to fool with it tonight so I am gonna hit it first thing after coffee in the morning

i only asked because i found it easier to remove my oil filter and bring it GEAR DRIVE up first through the side of the engine in the engine bay... :) plus, i needed an oil change anyway.

 

Edit: the bracket/sheild on the starter?

i took that off too

I just did an oil change before the starter died and with my headers, it won't fit through there....no body lift yet.....I read everything on here with starter in the post be fore I tackled it. All in all, it probably 30 minutes to get it out, but it sure did seem like longer.....

Went too the gas station in it, I got my first ticket ever, for loud exhaust. Also got bitched at for it being too high (bumper to ground, mn is 28inchs) lack of fender flares, expired tabs, unreadable plates, lack of amber colared turn signals and lack of bumpers.

 

Do you have a picture of your truck? Hard luck man.

got the starter back in in about 10 minutes from hooking up wires to crank time!!!!! :aok: and after a trip to Harbor Freight for a ball joint separator, got the right upper BJ changed!!! Now it's a trip to town with the better half......but when I return, gonna get the left axle shaft out, replace the left BJ and put on rear shocks!!!!! I figure no need to put the new front shocks on till I get the new CVs in.....no since in double work!!!!!
