Time to install the K & N Air Filter. I really didn’t want to but had to of course. I can really surprise myself doing things but it’s always hard to start. I’m a procrastinator to the max. But, once I start, I go until it’s done. I had a K & N filter on the Newmar and really liked it. Easy to clean the filter. This one is ass backwards. I have to remove the whole filter box to remove the filter and clean it. The Newmar K & N was just remove a wing nut and out popped the filter. This one I have to remove the entire box assembly…oh well. Each time I clean it, I save about $180 for a new one. It took me 2 1/2 hours to remove the old one and install the K & N. I will store the old one for what ever the reason. Next time I think I can do it under an hour.
Then I took the mud flap off since I was really dirty anyhow. I wanted to raise it up higher. It turned out I didn’t have the parts to make it happen so I reinstalled it. O.K. I’m done working under the rig.
Next was the new CB. I took the CB apart (lid off) and turned a few screws to make it a little stronger. I read about the adjustments on the internet for this CB so it must be true. I checked out all the parts and got ready to install but didn’t. I didn’t want to over work myself. I might give others an impression of what I can really do. Remember that Tom Sawyer thing. How about Tim Allen.
I got some ribs out to smoke for tomorrow. I will try to make them just about fall off the bone and just the right flavor. A few of us are going over Mark’s to drink some of his home brew beer too. He has that mastered.
