    Thank you Brent for raking the time to reply. When you flush, you just stick a garden hose in that hole you show in the pic? Where are those plugs in relation to the motor? Thanks again

    Howdy! This week is hot August nights. I was cruising around and found not one dodge pickup truck. Every Truck was ford chevy/gmc. To be honest, I was a bit disappointed. 1, because no flippin dodges. 2, most of the other trucks were modified. Makes me want to get my truck running and take it to these shows. Hope you all are having a good day.

    Hello Gentlemen, Between working 70 hours a week and doing laundry, I finally managed get the bolts cut off of the exhaust manifold. Pulled the manifolds off to expose the valve case. Few Questions. The manifolds can be resurfaced/ reused? What is the best approach when starting with the cooling system? Where can I find a cover for my dodge, that is reasonably priced? Thanks

    Hello Gentlemen. Today I attempted to remove the manifolds. I was semi successful in removing all bolts, accept the exhaust manifold part that attaches I believe to the exhaust pipe? These were a pain. Either I need a air gun, or us a wrench on the bottom, spin it till the wrench hits the block and try to screw from the top, or they are just going to snap. Also I'm concerned why these bolts look the way they do. Is there a bunch of corroded metal in my manifold bolt holes? Hope this isn't too big of an issue.

    Today I cleaned the top of the block. Got as much carbon I could off the top and on the cylinder walls. Still would like to do one more scrape and scrub. Looks a lot better. Next step is to take the manifold off and clean the valve case.

    Something like this, Merle? Apply with spray bottle? Thanks again for your help

    Howdy Gents. Today I was going to pull my manifold apart. But I was experiencing rain. So I decided to take the inner panel over the front wheel off to get better access to my manifold and valve case. Small steps. I love working on this truck. Gives me a better understanding on what goes on under the hood. Still a greenhorn when it comes to mechanics.

    Thanks. I feel the truck needs to be rescued. I like that it has all the hardware. I was thinking of using it for parts. A part of me feels bad taking parts off a great truck to make mine better. I'm pretty close to buying it. It has been there for a while . Not in a big hurry.

    Thanks Brent! My next move is taking the manifold off and getting into the valve case. See what kind of goodies are inside. Are the valves hard to remove and clean? I just want to make sure they are closing properly and won't get stuck in the future. The six pictures with the piston are all each individual one. I see some horizontal marks on one of the pictures. Is that a big deal? Thank for any advice
