    Replaced the kitchen fire extinguisher through the Kidde recall, they sent an auto/boat one. It sure would look good in my truck, points for matching colors...

    2.5# pounds of BC chemical is like spraying Binaca on a car fire. It really ain't going to do much

    Short side is front long is rear. As measured from the center bolt that holds the leaf pack together. Should be pretty obvious which side is the short end and which is the long just by eyeballing it.

    Per DOT regulations all commercial vehicles must have a properly rated ABC fire extinguisher. In other words it should at least try to put out all kinds of fires.

    If there is an arrow, it points forwards. The plus just means it’s slightly above spec height wise.

    Thought I'd ask you guys. Just replaced the fuel pump on my truck today because it would crank but won't start but still doesn't start I checked the EFI relay and the fuses in the cab there all good. Got any suggestions?

    The bolts are attached to that hanger. Just hammer them out from the inside and be careful to not damage the threads.
