    Wire rims, COOL! Of the top ten trucks I like, yours is in the top five for sure.

    Long day today, I tidied up a lot of loose ends today and and installed new shocks. Tomorrow I will tow the chassis to the muffler shop for a new muffler and tail pipe install. To tow, I have a 2" pipe with a log chain though it. I hook the chain ends so that the pipe is near snug at both ends. Now the towed vehicle does not need to have brakes, the pipe is the key.

    To keep those parts makes a lot of sense. Mine will go with the car. "I would only add that we should all keep the drums and other parts we take off for the next owner in case he wants to restore it. Can't sell that crap for enough money to be worth your time anyhow,and having it might even help your sale."

    Some times a disc brake kit is less expensive than a drum brake restore.

    I just restudied the repair manual, here is its information. It appears the only adjustment is pedal related, not clutch release.

    I have only attached this clutch release, have not adjusted anything. Any tips on how to adjust, I will consult the manual, but recollection of past reading is that the manual is vague. The old adage "The devil is in the detail" is ringing too true just now.
  10. I like the trunks, yet I prefer the full cover. I placed a 2x6 "wall" across the bed to keep things near the gate, easy to load and unload and nothing is tempting. Full cover also helps some on gas mileage, but not much.

    Go lightly with the DA and don't press down, let it work and you won't cut to metal as often. I used 600 grit

    Why? Or why not?

    Probably a limousine company.

    Today I received my body mounts from Roberts. I misread their prices to wit: $9.00 per mount times 20 = $180.00. The price is $9.00 per set of two or $9.00 X 10 = $90.00. Since I had misquoted I felt a correction was needed.

    I'm very close to a drivable chassis.

    Optima 6v battery

    The tractors and other engine powered machines had magnitoes, so the crank was a way of life. I've cranked many a farm engine. Those cranks were permanently mounted.
