Re: The Blue Beast 2003 AWD Safari

Re: Burl -- 2003 GMC Safari soon to be camper

I mean every RV up until recently has been using some type of lead acid battery in an external compartment. But that is changing. If you are going to be using it constantly, Lithium is the way to go for the price per cycle, space consumed and usable output. There are plenty of lists of pros and cons...

Re: Burl -- 2003 GMC Safari soon to be camper

I was wrong, it's only 83lbs. http://cogenient.com/mfc-refdocs/C&D%20 ... 90MRLP.pdf

Says 115Ah when new, so you could have used 57Ah @50%DoD when it was new, slightly less now.
Looks like a good AGM!

Re: Burl -- 2003 GMC Safari soon to be camper

I wouldn't worry about the temperatures, they are not like Lithium batteries where you can't charge them below freezing. Plus if you put it inside you have to worry about adding a box and venting to the outside(yes VRLA batteries have to be vented to the outside). If you mount it outside then you do...

Re: another turn signal post

So I bought a pack of 2057 Phillips LL, changed the rear turn signal bulb out again, yesterday I put in an 1157 bulb. Working fine now. Maybe this will help somebody else in the future. Did you happen to test the 1157 bulb, was the filament bad? The 2057 is the same bulb, same base, same filament, ...

Re: Pair of astro Van brake rotors for sale in baltimore

Sucks that you don't have a van that they fit anymore. ~$50each @WM $60ea @advance

$10+$15 shipping each is still a decent deal.(wouldn't want to pay retail shipping on those though)

If they fit any of my vans I would run them for a set of pads. GLWS

Re: Electrical power

even though the battery is full I moved it around and the power flicked now I can’t even get it to do that That says connection at the battery to me. Pull the battery cables, take the rubber boots off and clean them up. Then re-install and properly tighten the terminals. If that doesn't work, then ...

Re: getting my 89 Astro back to New England

If you use a full sized tow dolly, you shouldn't need the skinny spare tire, only if you are using the smaller u-haul dolly.

Get the factory service manual, the digital version is called the GM Techline eSI(see link in sig), has virtually everything about repairing your vehicle including the wiring diagrams.

Re: Water Pump $40 Vs $150

I found out that the less expensive ACDelco water pump was aftermarket and I wanted to go with genuine ACDelco parts so I opted for the one costing three times more. It has been fine after 60,000 miles since. The cheaper one would probably have been OK but I just did not want to take a chance on a ...
