    Yes indeed, best to diversify. I can usually find ammo for at least one of the four pistol calibers or four rifle calibers. The two shotguns are well stocked. I try to stay at the couple hundred rounds level, for every caliber I own...
  2. The 420 Rancher I have is next...I didn’t like the feel of things the last time I changed the oil. Hopefully there are still enough threads left to get the Fumoto on there.
  3. Installed a Fumoto F-109 oil quick drain on the 2018 Foreman. Beefed up the stock skid plate, so it can’t get pushed up and expose the drain. As it sits, it is recessed 3/16” from the drain opening in the skid plate. I’m converting all three Honda ATVs over to these...no more worrying about stripping out oil drain threads...

    The bear loads leave a little sting behind...shoot two or three off every spring so as to remember where to put the sights...they hit a few inches higher than the normal 44mag rounds. 340gr @1300 something fps +P round, from Buffalo Bore.

    The Ruger Alaskan in my bike handlebar bag. Has a heavy frame to handle bear loads.

    Winchester Alaskan 375H&H, another mod 70, Featherweight 30-06. Marlin 1895 Trapper 45/70, SKS, two Remington 12 gauge shotguns, 870 wingmaster & 1100. A couple 22 rifles-nylon 66, Rossi, some pistols, 44mag Ruger Alaskan, 1911 in 45, kel-tec 22mag. And of course...a couple of pellet guns to keep the squirrel population down.
  7. Happy Solstice Day! We are now gaining sunlight again! Here is what we have for sunlight today in Fairbanks, Alaska. Stay warm.
  8. If I’ve got a rusty mess to work on, I’ll mix up either H5606 (aviation hydraulic fluid) or ATF 50/50 with acetone. I’ll put it in a pressurized spray can and go at it. Smaller jobs are either Kroil or ACF-50/ corrosion X...those last two are identical except one has the mil-spec #.
  9. You can buy the Shell Rotella T6 for $20 - 22 a gallon. Home Depot or Walmart is the cheapest up here. That is cheaper by the quart than the Honda Oil at the dealer, for a full synthetic... probably 1/2 the price of Mobil or Amsoil synthetic...
  10. The Shell Rotella T6 5W40 full synthetic. The T6 is JASO MA rated for wet clutch usage. They also have a colder and warmer weight version to fit your climate. I use the 5W40 year round in Interior Alaska. We go from -40F to +80F up here... I use this oil in all three Honda ATVs. My 08 Honda Rancher has been using it the longest.
  11. philipsandtemro.com these guys make a 125W pad, good quality.
  12. I put two 100W silicon heat pads on the case where the oil sump is. These pads are fairly common up here. The use of two pads warms the whole engine up. I’m running Shell Rotella 5W40 synthetic oil. Never had any problems starting. Napa carries silicon heat pads, Alaskan and Canadian companies make heat pads, Kats or Yukon are a couple brands of pads.

    I think the newer Rubicon wheels would work also. People are always selling brand new stock tires and wheels. Just got to put that after market $1200 worth of tires and wheels on...
  14. I’ve put 13 hours on the Honda snowblower and 20 hours so far on the Honda Foreman plowing. Main problem this winter was it being too cold to move snow! I have silicon heat pads on both of the above to warm the oil...was a tough winter this year.
