At Least Someone is Out Riding




On Thursday, we put the new fuel pump on Jed's EFI Ural after we damaged it when removing the tank last Fall. We also replaced the seal and bearings in the alternator drive to get rid of an oil leak. Today. he came by and we finally finished the deep sump oil pan and oil pickup extension. They changed the design of the oil pickup sometime and got rid of the safety wire so we had to install the old setup to get the extended pickup to work. We also installed two gas cans on the sidecar body. No reason to run out of gas now. On the EFI rigs, extra gas is important to have as there is no "reserve" setting like on the carbureted rigs and I hear (on the Internet) that the low fuel light isn't 100% reliable.

BTW, a new addition to the web page is the Amazon Affiliate link in the upper right of this page. It is an experiment on my part and most of the RV accessory links in the last month or so have the affiliate ID embedded in them. According to the site, if anyone in the U.S. (besides me) uses this link to access Amazon, anything purchased during that session, which is valid for the next 24 hours, will generate some amount of Amazon credit. It has no effect on the item price, shipping or selection. It doesn't have to be the item I used/recommended. According to the report on their site, someone had used the link and I now have 74¢ of credit! Since the RV is causing me to order a lot of stuff from Amazon, I thought that I would give this a shot since I'll be doing more reviews of RV stuff in the future.

I will try and remember your Affiliate link for when we order from Amazon.

Thank you, much appreciated. Considering all the stuff I've needed to get the RV ready to go, I figured that I may as well sign up for their program.

thanks for the info on the amazon link RichardM, I've set one up for myself as well....we'll see if anyone clicks on the ones I put out there.

So did Jed leave a happy camper after all that wrenching?

I believe that he was very glad to have his Ural on the road again. You can put an Amazon Affiliate link on your sidebar. It doesn't have to be for any specific product.

The affiliate link is a great idea. I'm always amazed to see snow riding. I wonder if I could tolerate the cold, never mind the whole slipperiness aspect. I'll just continue to live vicariously through you.

I figured that the affiliate link was worth a shot especially with all of the Amazon stuff that I've been getting for the RV. Snow riding is pretty straight forward with a third wheel...
