    Good Evening Jim,

    A while back you posted about redoing your AC system and lines. Looking to do the same thing with my 93 but as you know the hoses as made don't match what's available on the street for fittings, stainless braided lines etc. Can you send some pictures, parts information and any other relevant info to my email on what you did with that project. I'd be most appreciative.

    Respectfully, Kyle Takakjian. [email protected] 774-353-6842

    Jim, 1990 W-250. Can't get access to the bottom bolt to pull the power steering pump. Have tried sockets with u joints, swivel sockets to no avail. Too much of an angle. Is there a special tool to get to that one bolt?

    Thanks,

    Bruce

    Good evening Jim. I'm currently doing your 110-555JHO alternator swap and I saw where you said to ask you where to get already made brackets. I don't have easy access to a welder so any links to already made parts would help me a ton. Thank you for the help and happy New Years.

    Hello Jim. I appreciate your help.
    I have a 1992 D250, 12 valve. It was rear ended very hard. It bent the bumper, receiver hitch and bent the frame. It even cracked the dash in 5 places.
    #1. The windows would not operate with either switch.
    #2.The heater blower would not work.
    #3.The AC clutch will not engage.
    I ran a fused hot circuit from the battery to the window breaker slot in the fuse block. and another fused hot circuit from the battery to the blower fuse slot in the fuse block
    This allows the windows and blower to now operate even with the key off. Fixed #1. and #2.
    I read your post about running the AC clutch.
    Blue/wt stripe to relay #86,
    relay #30 with 20amp fuse to battery (DOES THIS HOT GO THRU A TOGGLE SWITCH ON THE DASH?) and jumper to relay #85,
    relay #87 with female spade to the compressor harness ( IS THIS A BROWN WIRE?) and compressor harness BLUE WIRE TO GROUND LUG?
    Have I got it right on wire colors and switch?
    Thanks

    Hey, Jim. Got a question for you regarding electrical. I found a spade type fuse holder in my rig with a melted 15amp fuse. It is the fuse for my fog lights. It's been there for years, and this is the 1st time that has happened. I pulled out the melted fuse, cleaned out the fuse holder with electric cleaner, and replaced the fuse. Lights all work. Last night I pulled over to check the fuse and the fuse holder for a "just in case" and with the truck idling and the lights on for what seemed like 40 seconds I felt the fuse and it was really hot. I quickly turned the lights off. Just curious if you would know why that would happen. I regularly, once a week, powerspray the inside of the engine compartment when I wash my rig and wonder if water getting in there would corrode the holder and cause this. I'm guessing the fuse is arcing maybe? And causing it to get hot? Why doesn't the fuse just blow? Other than replacing the fuse holder, is there anything else I should check? Thanks in advance

    Hi Jim, I recently built your headlight relay harness and would like to install it, however my Canadian truck has DRL's. I cannot find how to make the harness work with DRL's. Do you know if I can just unplug the DRL module and just use my lo beams every time I drive, or can I modify something to make it work? Thanks. KEvin

    Mr. Lane, I know this goes back a few years, 4 to be exact, but i have stumbled across a post about an A/C cycle switch for a dodge pickup, https://www.dieseltruckresource.com/...-t209083.html? stating that you have hotwired the cycle switch. My cycle switch has gone out or is on its last leg causing my compressor to be intermittent. Is there anyway you could explain to me how you wired it to work? I understand that there is the possibility of it freezing up and then i would have to thaw it. That being a problem in higher humidity, living in southwest Oklahoma, i wouldn't believe this would be to big of a problem. i have tried to find a replacement switch and the only place i have found one, since it was discontinued from dodge without a replacement, is online for $102.25 shipped. I really don't want to spend that much if i don't have to. I appreciate your time helping me with this issue, Thanks in advance, Patrick
