  8. rear leaf spring pin removel

    Hey gramps1951, Those are most likely my videos you watched. The pins are soaked with penetrating oil first. Sometimes they give it up and sometimes it takes a lil more. The video helps show what's going on with the whole set-up and not so much "hey, this is easy!" ...lol. Glad you got'er out. 48D
  9. DODGE logo art

  10. New 1950 dodge Truck to me

  11. Spring under axle rear b2b

    I want my truck to go faster and faster......so lower works for me. My feeling about these old dodge trucks...ANY truck saved by someone who wants to drive it, no matter how its set up, is better than a truck lost to the crusher. That's why I save every truck I can. 48D
  12. New 1950 dodge Truck to me

    Look under the cab by the foot board (lay on your back). You'll see the bolt holding the cab if its still there. If the previous owner did something different, I'd have to believe it would still be in the same location. The bushings for the cab are on either side of the mounting perch, which is connected to the frame. The cab needs to be elevated to remove the bushings, so if you are going to do this, you might be putting some work into that modified floorboard. 48D
  13. Dual horns

    I have a set (pair?) ...have yet to wire them up. I'm not sure I've even heard what they sound like. Anybody wanna youtube that??? 48D

    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

  21. 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
