    Manifold Stud Replacement

    don't over think it Matt, you'll get them out. Patience and penetrating oil. don't force them if they bind, let the stud cool and come back at it. I spent three days last year removing a water pump, one bolt 1/8" at a time (the block and radiator still in the truck) i'll bet you either get them out no problem..... FYI, I bought my replacement studs at Napa I'd only use the welding as the last resort. good luck

    Manifold Stud Replacement

    I have revived a few of these motors and the worst one, was the block that didn't have coolant in it for years...... here is my "redneck" stud removal on the left side. (right side I had to tap out... block still in the truck)

    title issues

    from this photo, I would have guess it a 53 also.... even the "Dodge" script on the front looks different than mydodge440's photo (as Reg mentioned above) either way, sure is Purdy

    "Farmer fixes"

    I Recently picked up another truck and it makes me laugh at some of the "on the fly" fixes folks make to these trucks. Not talking " rat rods" or "custom" upgrades but, things people do in the name of repairs. Example- glove box door lock Yep, they drilled a hole in the dash to hook a bent rod in it to hold the door closed. 😄 what have you come acrossed in your builds?

    "Farmer fixes"

    LOL, I looked at that photo about 4 times before I finally saw it...... camouflaged very well glad it is received in the way it was intended, not slamming or knocking anyone's fixes.... they just make me laugh

    Battery cable connection locations???

    my 1.5 and 2ton also have the ground bolted to the frame with the 12" cables (as shown in the parts manual) but, my 1/2tons and 1ton are grounded to the transmission top. a reliable source has also confirmed his 2-3/4 tonner, 2-1/2 tonner and a 4 tonner is grounded to the frame, and has come to the conclusion that on "the 1/2 thru 1 tons the engines are mounted on three rubber mounts...two at the rear ..one at the front requiring a ground cable to the transmission On the 1-1/2 ton and up the rear engine mounts are solid steel to steel (Bell housing is directly bolted to the frame)" I concur

    "Farmer fixes"

    my B3HH has a "pedal stiffener" AKA section of rebar welded to the brake pedal and along the bend for extra support

    What is the model of this truck

    Better yet, I'd take it down to the BBQ in April and leave it for the BBQ goers to work on every year...... you know, cause some guys can't sit still (then I'd bring it home) 😄
  15. Anyone know of a company to restore my glove box "shift tag" instructions for one of my trucks?

    What is the model of this truck

    Wait a minute!..... Is this in Oregon?!
  18. Just finished the "art work" for my ride down there 😄
  19. Hey Robin! the style looks like the 48-50 truck style but, yours has more of a "bend" in it then I have seen. ( as Keven compared the 48-50 and the 51-53 in post 13) So sorry, I know what it isn't but not sure exactly what it is I am sure someone will chime in that knows, be patient with us, we are usually out putting out trucks to use 😄

    How to keep running board painted??

    Yeah, I'll bet his nephew hears about it every time he sees Mark I was give a three minute tutorial on getting in and out of FEF when I was given a ride. LOL, it was worth it but, I don't think I ever got my deposit back
