    Johnnym,

    Is there a "Vent pipe" off to a back corner of your leach field ??? These can get plugged by critters.....

    One other idea if you don't mind digging.....the exit pipe from the tank has a short run out to the D-box,this should have an inspection cover also, this will show if the tank is trying to drain into your field and if the field is allowing "Affluent" in...

    Good luck and hopefully something simple.......field replacement is $$$$$

    He's probably wondering who the f*** was convoying with him. The only time I met him I was in a Yaris

    Shot in the dark... Anyone know what hex size the 2008 auto trans drain plug is? Mine is so rounded out by the previous owner I can't even tell anymore. Going to have to weld a hex socket into it...

    I've got a Milwaukee corded and a matching cordless one. For quick cutting the cordless one works like a charm but if I need to really cut up something I'll use the corded.

    I use mine a lot in landscaping.

    According to another thread, the fill plug is 24mm, the drain plug is 14mm, and the overflow plug is 5mm hex

    Before I throw it on Craigslist, anyone interested in an 800 watt, 2 stroke Chicago generator? It works well, just too small for what I use it for. New, they're $100, make an offer if you want it. Just looking to get it out of my garage.

    On a semi-related note, I'm going to also be listing some baby stuff that's used but still in really good shape. I have a crib, pack and play, high chair and I'm sure a lot of other things will come up. E kept everything as clean as you can with babies. Let me know if you're interested in any of it. I can PM pictures if you'd like.

    Let me talk to my Mom about the baby stuff. Do you have a swing? Thinking maybe the pack and play.

    I want my Mom to have a couple of things at her house for when the baby goes over.

    Let me see what I have. We used to have a glider but may have given it away already. Pack and plays are nice, we used them camping for a long time. They are handy!

    Awesome thanks! I was on my way to autozone to buy a hex socket to weld into the drain plug then I realized I didn't know what size I needed.... then we ran out of gas for the welder soooo it'll have to wait until tomorrow. Guess I'll be whipping the evo for a few days.

    Tie Rods are in - ProForged inner and outter. Install went smoothly - used a 13$ ABN tie rod removal tool (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06XWBZ4Y...8-1-spons&keywords=tie+rod+removal+tool&psc=1) since my 40$ harbor freight removal tool didn't fit... Go figure should have just stuck with the cheap universal tool. The ProForged outter tie rods when bolted down seem a bit long (the threaded section) because by the time the castle nut is tightened down the hole for the cotter pin is above the entire castle nut itself. I mean I'm not going to worry too much right now but I'll machine a washer to raise the nut up a bit higher so I can utilize the cotter pin properly. The passengerside had to be removed as a whole piece whereas the driverside came out perfectly in sections so I'll hold onto that side as a backup set.

    I used the following proforged parts:
    Inner Tie Rod - 31$ - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00P0LDLVE/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1
    Outter greasable tie rod - 22$ - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008VMQ84G/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    edit - this is what the harbor freight tie rod removal tool looks like - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B...7-b4d4-466b-8c26-2639359664eb&pf_rd_i=desktop

    Woke up to a massacre in my front lawn.. I had a rabbits nest near the corner of the yard from my 'pet' rabbit/lawn mower. Someone or something came through and killed all the babies - the weird part is that they didn't have bite marks on them - it was a clean slit on the side of their necks consistent between the 2 I found and just now my tenant finding another one near the side entrance.
