    I just had the same problem on my ’03 Silverado 2500HD. On my truck, the idler pulley is metal and at the top of the belt routing. The tensioner pulley is the one that keeps tension on your belt, and is located halfway down on the passenger side. It is plastic. Take the belt off loosening the tensioner pulley, and then spin both pulleys – you will probably feel or hear a bad bearing in either one of them. I could’ve sworn mine was the idler pulley, but it was actually the tensioner pulley. Got one at O’Reilly’s and also got a new belt (if it hasn’t been replaced in a while, you might as well do that for peace of mind). Put the belt on using the diagram on the radiator shroud. Everything cost just under $50.
    Don’t know how much different the TB is compared to the Silverado, but they can’t be too much different.
    Headlights are a different story – helped a friend with a TB change her headlight, what a cluster… 👿

    I can’t help with the credit stuff but I can help you with all the calls. Send them notorized letter of no contact via certified mail. I just Googled it and there are all sorts of examples you can use. Once that has reached them (you will know because of the certified mail) it becomes illegal for them to contact you and you can sue them if they do. Start recording the phone calls too. Tell them you are recording and they start to get real nervous. Iowa is a one party consent state for recording conversions so don’t let them try to tell you that you can’t record without their consent. The no contact letter should do it, because if they violate it you have a very easily won lawsuit to help you pay off that land!

    Profanity works well also. They would literally call me 2-3 times a week or more. I would keep telling them that I was not interested. Finally, they called me at the wrong time & I let them have it. 👿 They haven’t called back since. :mrgreen: ‘Course, now I probably just jinxed myself… 🙄

    Since he golfs, buy him a bag of tees! 😆 That’s definitely under $50.

    I was hoping one of them “Mountain Cougars” would attack him at some point. That would’ve really been neat! :mrgreen:

    Ouch!!! Hopefully you can heal fast!
    I got sort of the same kind of news monday, but ? I was told that my shoulder is shot.( so bad a specialist won’t even operate on it)My bow hunting days are over, and the list of things i can’t do keeps growing! I have to live with what little usage i have! The only bright side, is that so far i can still fish and play golf this spring.

    You’re eligible for a crossbow now. I think all you need is a statement from your doctor and the DNR will allow you to deer hunt with a crossbow. I had a buddy go through shoulder sugery a few years ago & now he hunts with a crossbow, I give him a bad time about poaching deer cause he uses it.

    Just go to the DNR’s website – print off the crossbow application & take it in to your doctor. All he has to do is sign off on it & then you turn it in to the DNR. I had to take mine to the Wallace Bldg. – cost $1.00 for a lifetime permit.
    Also, a crossbow is only as good as the person holding it. Sure, they are usually easier to use than a regular bow, but they can still be a pain in the rump at times.

    I remember when Opening Day of Pheasant was the first Saturday in November, not the last of October. I know it’s only a week apart, but it just seems to always be too warm opening weekend and the corn is hardly ever out anymore. Also, I’m glad I’m not a kid anymore – would have to choose between trick-or-treating or going to Adair for the weekend. That’s another thing – I remember when you went trick-or-treating on Halloween night. Where did Beggar’s Night come from, anyway?

    Yep. with what has been said. No way to determine what the weather will be like for either week as far as cold fronts etc. But, in general, I think everything will have moved up by a week or two this year. As I mentioned on a post yesterday ice went out a couple of days ago near Virginia Minnesota. (Even crappies were biting) That’s 10 days earlier than the previous record set and it basically was a mild winter in Canada also. One thing about packing for a Canada fishing trip for almost any time of year. Take everything from shorts to coveralls and an electric fan to cool with and don’t forget warm gloves or handwarmers. You won’t regret it. You may need both the same week. Enjoy. Planning a trip is part of the fun.

    You may need both the same week.

    Same week? Sometimes same day! :mrgreen:

    Everyone planning on going to Ontario this year be sure to get your Passports early if you don’t have one. Also, remember the Passport Card is now available for $45 that allows travel by land to Canada and back….. Also, remember an Ontario Outdoor Card is required before you can obtain a Fishing or Hunting License. That can be done over the phone on a toll free call. I don’t have the number handy but I can get for you if you don’t find it on the Ontario MNR site…………………… Good Fishing to ya.

    Applied for my Passport Card on Saturday. They were saying that it takes about 2-3 weeks to get a full-blown passport but takes 4-6 weeks for the card. Couldn’t rationalize spending twice as much or so for the passport, especially since I don’t plan on flying anywhere out of the country. I just hope I get a chance to use this card sometime.
