I used to work at Newburg Ford when I first got out of the AirForce



Worked at Stream International for about a year before I left Oregon all together.

Maybe I'll return someday but prolly not as long as my Ex-wife still lives in Oregon (or still lives).

Now I live in Berrien Springs MI. about 10 miles south of Benton Harbor MI and 20 miles North of South Bend IN.
Interesting. I live in Vancouver WA. which is still sorta in Missy good wenches back yard. However I also lived in Berrien Springs while I went to Andrews University. I have also lived in Wausau WI as a kid and my wife is from Wisconsin Rapids. small world.

Ahhh yes Miles City. Was visiting all day there last June against my will. The town where every other pickup has a massive bumper/grill guard on it. Two of the tow companies in town are also body shops. Was heading to WI and the stupid wheel bearing went south in my van. Drivers side front of course. 4x4 axle from a 1988 3/4 ton Suburban. I could have fixed it alongside the road except for the bur the bearing made spinning on the spindle.
Special thanks to Rolling Rubber for putting it all back to shipshape for less then the cost of the tow.
If you feel so inclined, take them a box of donuts for me. Special thanks from the guy in the Black Van. I know I will the next time I go through Miles City.

An AC garage would have been nice. I could have fixed it myself if I had a puller with me big enough. The guy that did the work had a nice puller. I think he used a bit of sandpaper first and then the puller and it came right off. I built the engine and pretty much the rest of the vehicle. Running train and suspension that is. I need to grab another spindle if I can find a decent one for a good price.

YUP, got a pretty good line of pullers, torch, welders, grinders and a lot of tools in general.
My main job was welding when with the DOT. Guess that is why I am so slow to learn on the electricals and controls of the 6.5. The state had quite a few of them, I just never got to get around them much.
