Be very very careful with those plugs on a 3V 5.4. I'll try to dig up some info tomorrow, I know the tool is made by Lisle. I've seen quite a few come in on the hook because "I can change them, they're only spark plugs!"
I'll try to find the tsb too.

Thanks bud. I've read up on em and the FSM procedure on getting them out. I just know with my luck I'll break 4 out 8. I know the tool Is like $60 I'll probably order one tonight.
I'm guessing it will either go very smooth or I will f myself.

I have no experience, apparently powerjunky does, but i 100% always have and always will avoid gunshow reloads like the plague. heard WAYYYYY too many horror stories.

I buy new ammo, or quality factory reloads. and I've only bought factory reloads once. but i bought them from a place i knew would help me out and honor their product (new frontier)

That bitterroot valley place is at every cash an center gun show I've been to for a while. They are in the back left corner(usually) I havent had/heard of any issues with them. I've heard of other places, but not usually the regulars.

I reload and I don't like to let people shoot my reloads just because I don't want any kind of problem. It's not worth losing a friend over. In my experience reloading is just about quality control, and even though you have a progressive dillon press doesn't mean you don't need to check your powder drop. I have 400 rds of .41 that I reloaded, and so far 1 out of every 5 doesn't have enough powder. My own fault and it is going to be a huge PITA fixing that mess.

I've had issues with my dillon doing the same thing. It's like the powder measure doesn't close completely and short charges the next round in the sequence. Mine does it about 1 in 10. It was a used and very old press that I've replaced parts on and have finally gotten it close.

I don't think that would have pissed him off, he seems pretty thick skinned and takes **** as good as he dishes it out.


New Hampshire has been pretty awesome aside from a large majority of the locals having. telephone pole for a family tree. We are in Conn right now and I still cannot grasp hitting 4 states during a 3 hour drive. Good vacation so far considering it has been with the in-laws.

We went down a portion on rafts and it was perry cool. I was thinking the whole time how fun a kayak would have been. Her parents are a little too old and out of shape for a kayak. It is a good 25 ft elevation change from their house to the water, so they are pretty safe from the water. But they did say that last year the water came up to the road, which is half way.

The cool thing is that they took an old railroad track and turned it into an atv/snowmobile trail system. The trail runs through the back side of their property, so you can go from the garage to trail in 30 seconds. I will try to get some pictures of a few covered bridges too. God I wish we had the jeep here

In Brunswick there is an old suspension foot bridge across the river that is pretty cool. Then if you go upstream a few hundred yards there is a railroad/car bridge that goes across. The car bridge is underneath the rails and is only wide enough for 1 car. It is pretty sketchy driving across a hundred year old wooden bridge, but If it can support a train a car is fine. I wish I would have taken more pics while I was out there.
