  1. There is satisfaction in honing your own cylinders, slipping in new seals etc. When it was time, I bought new 😜

    Put My Dog Down Today...Been A Rough Day

    Your post strikes a note with me as with so many others here. Your emotions are palpable as our family just had a get together to say goodbye to Molly. Molly started having seizures and the meds at the time were not helping. Those raw emotions rock you down to your soul without warning, so again, I feel your pain. Your sharing was well timed for me and I can see how your love for Abbey has also touched so many others here on the forum who too have shared their story. Old cars, trucks and pets can really bring a family together. My takeaway is to pickup some ice cream and check out cats on Amazon. I also think @P15-D24 makes a good point: "Good news is their is another friend waiting out their to join your life and family, " We are all (Molly too) deeply sorry for your loss.
  3. Sometimes the simplest ideas take days to effect. I just wanted to change the diff oil but I'm 5/16 male drain plug socket short. Found one on Amazon for $15! Now waiting four days. At least I can still drive her.

    WC Rear axle removal

    I'd pay extra for the handy carrying case. I'm afraid one or more pieces of the kit are going to walk off one day. https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B01BUI5UVY/ref=psdcmw_15708881_t2_B012P0QV5K

    What paint to use on wheel rims?

  6. I used a five pound sledge hammer. I thought my puller was going to explode, then POP!

    Belgian rusty chocolate tools.

    Gotta get me some of those. Bring the wife over to the dark side.
  8. I thought the same as you on my first go around; too small for my bolt circle. By leaving the bolts loosey goosed I got it on and situated, then tightenened things down and began banging away... POP!

  10. Roxanne added to the 1948-1953 dodge Truck Registry: http://www.townwagon.com/4853registry/display.php?serial=82204513 They are also asking some tough questions that I don't have answers to: Build Card Date (I'll have to order one) ? Body Tag Number - where is that? Gross HP (not on the data plate) ? Wheelbase? Wheel Rim Date - I'm not finding any dates on my rims? Final Drive Ratio - Isn't this always 1:1? Who here doesn't have their truck in the database? You can add it here: http://www.townwagon.com/

    Speedometer goes no higher than 15mph

    No "tube" on mine.
  12. Looks like a nice kit. I think I paid about the same and didn’t get the handy carrying case.

    ...and report your results. Nothing g worse than an unfinished story.
  14. The flex hose: Unscrew the brass connector on the inside of the frame rail. Then you can put a deep socket on the retaining nut, a wrench on the outside brake hose connector and remove. Pretty tight on the inside to get tools in. I think we used an extension, or it might have just been my son's Superman grip I bent my own brake lines with a borrowed tool from OReillys Auto Parts. I mismanaged the removal and broke the lines. I've broken three out of four so far. At least I have a lot of new brake lines now.
