    Bad Reproduction Fender Stone Guards on Ebay

    Cool. I bought a gas cap from the SeaPlym Store => 😀
  2. What happened to using a vacuum gauge? I've seen it reccomended here and elsewhere, especially for older engines. http://automotivemileposts.com/garage/v2n8.html
  3. Hey Merle, c'mon over here. We'll use my truck and make a new video

    what are the rules cruise in/ car shows

    Holy crap Brent-man! I attended my first show this summer and thought they might not let me in, but they did. I learned how important these old trucks are to others. One guy kept staring at my truck and finally comes over and tells an emotional story of his dad's farm going belly up and him moving the family and everything they owned in a truck exactly like mine to Colorado. Good thing they let me in. Oh, I met a lot of really cool cars and their owners too. Jeff & Evie @ Old Town Car Show

    Warm start issue

    I'll agree that these trucks prefer non ethanol gas. See if you can find a station near you =>
  6. I'm not clear on the 6v diode. My understanding is that the fuel sender transmits resistance, not voltage. FWIW my DCM guage is still working, though a lot short in the tank. I think it gives me a 4 gallon reserve.
  7. With your experience, and the experience of @ggdad1951 I don't think we'll ever know re original color. I thought one of my front wheels still had a good sample of orig color under the hubcap but on closer inspection I can see it was repainted, and where it has chipped off it is showing a very faded buff color - almost light gray. I'd be happy with @Merle Coggins, Mark's or @David A.'s.
  8. I was looking at @ggdad1951's FEF and see Mark is using what appears to be the original "yellow". I recall him discussing it here and there. I think he referred to it as Armour Yellow. When I learned that Les Schwab Tires would media blast and powder coat wheels for about 36 bucks each I pulled 'em off Roxanne and trucked over to the local franchise. The yellows they showed me were pretty lemon or orange, and none that looked like what Mark has on FEF. I have remnants od the original yellow color; the pin stripes on my grill bars. When I measure with my colorometer I get RGB 217 201 140. Yes, faded and sun tinted. What is the original color really, or more important, what color is it in today's paints? Now I'm at a crossroads. My new plan is to media blast them and paint them myself, but not sure how to proceed. I've heard rustoleum has a color that is very close, or I can get a can mixed up and spray it myself, or ??? I'm not planning a show quality restore, more of a general cleanup and preservation and need some counseling and advise to that end. Ideas?

    Oh, what to do? AND Are these wheels stock?

    You need to go back where you got it. Looks like you forgot the gas cap! 😂

    What kind of thread? And size?

    Geewhiz, I was hoping we would see the final fitted and painted results?!
  11. Hey @pflaming, have you installed new body mounts and performed a sound check?

    Interesting photos I have run across.

    Great story. Thanks for sharing it.
  13. I spent more time looking for the spring that shot across the garage than I did actually getting them on.
