  1. You drove 4000 miles. My 600 miles was nothing... Good to see you again Brother.
  2. Hmm... Those skid marks don’t seem to match the tread pattern on the truck... 🤔 Tire that left the mark had 4 rows of tread blocks. Your Fargo has 5.
  3. Pressing down on the inside handle opens the door. Lifting up on the handle locks the door. Then lock the passenger side door with key as Reg said.
  4. Looks like a couple guys that are out standing in the field... or are they outstanding in their field?
  5. That could go both ways. If it wasn't for a fumble the Packers may have had 28...
  6. I think it left a stain on my door... Go Pack Go!!!
  7. Look closely to see if there are any signs that the spring perches were cut off and re-welded on the bottom.
  8. So, at these guys have shown, that wire is for the horn. The “loose end” under the car should be coming out the end of the steering box and go to the horn relay to provide a ground to activate the relay. When you press down the horn button/ring you complete the ground for that wire, and the horn circuit.
  9. Lid is not sealing. Better remove it and inspect the gasket to be sure it didn’t slip out of place.
  10. No replacements available that I’m aware of. They’re pretty robust tempered glass. If you find a parts truck they’re likely in decent shape. I’ve got a spare set on the shelf from a parts truck I had, just in case... They need a bit of cleaning up, but they’re in good condition.
  11. I have 3.73 gears in my truck and cruise easily at 65 MPH. I can push it up to 80 when needed, but I don't like to push like that if I don't have to.
  12. I'd start by removing the critter carcasses, then spray down the cylinder walls with a good penetrating oil. On any valves that are open spray some of that same oil on the valve stems to help lubricate the valve stem/guide area. Get yourself a large socket and breaker bar to fit the crankshaft bolt and try to get it to rotate. Once it rotates, continue to lube the cylinder walls and valve stems. Check that all of the valves close fully. There is a tendency for valves to stick open when the guides and stems get a little rusty. Once you have everything moving freely, reinstall the head, get some gas flowing into the carburetor, and fire it up.
  13. I agree. Don’t bother spacing out the rears. It won’t be noticeable.
