The drama continues. :lol:
So the pump that they put in saturday morning had a bad level sender. Released it to me saturday afternoon since I needed the truck, said they'd get a warranty replacement in and they'd replace that next week.
Image

Up to the mountain saturday night, crew's gearing up. Another SAR assist... one rider missing, probably out of fuel. Go over maps, point-last-seen, point-last-contacted, he's got gear/skills for an overnight if it comes to that. County SAR won't deploy till morning. Headed out to see if we could find the rider.
Image

0200, no rider found, wind + low-viz/blowing snow making the search effort futile. Called it for the night, we'll let SAR deal with it in the morning.
Download/gather GPS tracks, debrief SAR when they arrived, they went out to search. We had an intro class to teach, but I brought my ops radio along if they needed further assistance. SAR ended up finding the guy on a trail that we woudln't have searched - way further south than where he was last-contacted, and not enroute to the truck. Don't know the whole situation, but we saw him as we were doing the class, know he got out safe.
Class was challenging ... in addition to Brian and myself, we had another snow geek shadowing us (LOTS of non-motorized/heli-ski experience, real solid on snow science/avy safety, recently got into snowmobiling) and another rider from Iowa who's interested in becoming an instructor. It was really nice to have that additional support for this class... I certainly needed the assistance. :shock:

~50m/h winds had drifted snow all over the parking lot. Gusts so strong with snow stinging your face, making it hard to breathe. Sunday night, get everything packed/loaded, head down the mountain. Got a "Check Gages" light after startup, low alternator output. Great. That cleared after the engine warmed up a bit.
Truck's running fine... coast down the mountain, get to the flats, and when I started to make the pull into town, the truck started vibrating hard. Back off throttle, slow down, vibration isn't changing with RPM or speed. Not what I needed to deal with, but things are still running...
Pull into the fuel station to top off and check out what's going on... pop the hood, and there's a fuckload of snow in the engine compartment. Battery, fuse block, brake amplifier, firewall, all packed with snow. :lol: Fan on the transmission cooler had a bunch of snow packed onto the blades. :lol:
Scraped most of the snow out, truck ran fine with no more vibrations the rest of the night. :lol:

But wait there's more! :lol:

Dropped the truck off at the shop again monday morning. "What time do you need the truck back?" uhh, thursday-ish? No rush. NEED it by weekend.
"No problem, we can have it done today." Cool. Monday night, no phone call. Tuesday, no phone call.
This morning (wed), I get a voicemail, "I need to talk to you about your pickup." :o
Fuel pump they put in saturday wasn't new, it was a return that got restocked on the parts store shelf. I bet it got returned for the level sender. :wink:
But in the process of replacing the pump again... they pinched a hole in the bottom of the fuel tank. 15 gallons of fuel "made a big mess".
Shop's owning up to it - getting me a new fuel tank to put a new fuel pump in and top it off with fuel. Tank should be in friday.

I feel like the first shop (the one I told to put a fuel pump in, and they didn't) would have told me my injectors were bad. :rofl:

Sounds like you’ve had an exciting week!! Where was the class and SAR assist at? Cascades or out of state?

Snowies, southeastern Wyoming. Centennial side.
First assist was in the same area earlier this year: https://adrenalinematters.wordpress.com ... s-learned/

We (TylersBA.org) do classes across the rockies (mostly northern CO and southeastern Wyo) - AIARE Motorized Level 1's (3 days), and intro/awareness (1-day) courses.

Yeah, put 315/70R17's on there a few years ago. Had them studded, pulled the studs out that summer (wouldnotrecommend/10) with the intention to use those tires in the summers and get another set of studded tires for the winter. With the shitty winters we've been having, I haven't gotten another set of tires yet...

I have no idea how they did what they did. :rofl: At least they're taking care of it.

Studded duratracs weren't good enough?! I have been very impressed with the stock duratracs on my truck for winter use.

Studded is great on snow/ice, they're just noisy and kind of skatey on dry pavement and offroad.
What I wouldn't recommend is pulling studs out of a studded tire. Get another set. :cash:

Unstudded isn't bad, but studded is more better.

OMG - I pulled all the studs out of a set of tires - It took a couple of hours - My hands and wrists were toast afterwards.

New (used) tank in. New fuel pump in. Everything seems to be good now. Hopefully this is all over with for a while...

I decided Mule was onto something good, so I killed my fuel pump at the gas station an hour ago. This is really fun dude, good idea!
