  2. The 3/4 Question . . .

    To many projects to micro organize......my wrenches/tools have multiple homes all under my shop's roof. So in a way......they are exactly where they belong, and since Its my domain, 9 times outta 10....I know where the dang stuff is! 48D p.s. Most popular wrench? my hammer.
  3. Hurricane Harvey - What a mess!

    Sorry my friend,...... Its always so different when its your own stuff and life involved..... 48D

  5. So this is what being fired feels like

    You're an amazing friend Mark. I hope I can help somehow, make a difference for you like you've done for me. Just remember to keep your friends involved, its hard for some of us to pick the right moment,.... you know, to seriously reach out and make a difference. Tim aka 48Dodger
  6. Congratulations Keven

    Great to hear you're back in the game Kev!! The fuel system is easy...it goes from the gas tank to the fuel pump, from the pump to the carb, and then into the cylinders.......:D Miss you bud! 48D
  7. Check the rules again.....you guys are covered! lol 48D
  8. Forgot the final pictures of the install....many thanks to my better half for the assist....lol 48D
  9. Wow, what a day in Clements!!! My wife is an inspiration, she is never to proud to try something new. Today on "INTERNATIONL WORK ON YOUR TRUCK DAY", she jumped in and helped me hang the bumper on "THE BRICK". Damn, what a woman! Charged the 1949 COE's battery steering wheel installed on B1BQ (finally) Rear bumper on the The Brick aka Wedding Truck 48 "lucky" D
  10. I'll be installing a factory correct used rear bumper on "The Brick"....I plan on doing a complete teardown this year, so this will be a fit-up really. Definitely will have a few pictures to share. 48D
  11. Hand cranking

    You da friggin man!!! 48D
  12. This is it Man.....MAY 6TH 2017 - International Work On Your Truck Day #6!!!! Get your wrenches out ....the good weather is coming.....time to make it roll without the nieghbors pushin it! Power to the toolbox! Its a day we all make all stand together as one, and show everyone, that: "We love our old Trucks!!!!!!!!" The Five Rules: 1. Work on your truck....looking at it counts, writing "wash me' on it counts, washing, dusting it, kicking the rubber ALL counts! a. Ordering parts count! b. Waiting by the mailbox for your part counts. 2. Report what you did....and be honest, cuz its all good. 3. Post a picture of what you did....again, fresh finger prints count. 4. Explain what inspires you the most about your truck, how you got it....it was your dad's, it was your uncle's, brother's, you found it, Brent stole it for you, Mark molded one piece at a time for you, Merle made you build one, you won it in a badminton game with Tim Adams and Don Coatney, you read ED's thread and got super inspired.......found it in a barn or whatever...lol. 5. Try to share your days experience and pictures as soon as you can.....!!! Good luck everyone!!!!! Here comes Saturday!!! Tim aka 48Dodger
  13. Hand cranking

    I've only hand crank started the old B and A model John Deere (the big wheel on the side, not a bar)......they have the compression valves you open up so you could turn the dang thing. If you've ever done that, then you may have also enjoyed the "spray" as the sucker started up! I was definitely standing in the wrong place the first time I helped Grandpa fire it up. 48D Tractor video (not me, lol) skip to 2:50
  14. front sway bar

    I've never seen one, but it could be done. You might look to the Chevy/Ford sites to find a product that works. Tying the frame rails together and connecting to the L/R side of the I beam. Just to clarify...you're not talking about a Panhard, right? That's a totally different animal. It keeps the axle centered. If your looking for a better ride, less body roll, try better (meaning better for you) shocks. Cuz shocks should fix most non high speed, non racing problems with these trucks. 48D
  15. Spring Specials

    THAT'S where I should keep my boots!!! I know of two in California....both on this forum. Jerry Little and John T. 48D
