  1. Actually, now it is one of the things I look for...jumps out at me when the "wrong" ones are on there...especially on a restoration. But that's me.
  2. right here: but you need to be on the full web based site not the mobile app version Mobile app you need to hit the hamburger Icon upper right, click the "browse" button then you will see "downloads", then look for "B3 gaskets" Or try this link: https://p15-d24.com/files/file/80-b3-gasketsmp4/
  3. GIANT CAT NOSE ALERT! Drop me a PM, I might have some laying around.
  4. oh ye gots a fancy lathe do ye?!?!? much better test, but more complicated to set up. Drill press would work as well, didn't think about it tipping over! LOL
  5. Pretty much every vendor out there (Horkey, Mar-K) does NOT make strips proper for our trucks. The only vendor with the proper profile is Midwest Military. If you want stainless, MM likely won't carry them as they are for stock stuff and would be painted and their dies would likely not handle SS properly. Horkey does do a good job in having the holes in the right spot from what I've been told, just know it won't be the right profile.
  6. thread a bolt in and slide hammer it out...
  7. I have the same book you have, great source. As for out of round/wobble on your pulley...you can just roll it on a long flat surface and watch the center to see if has any movement, about as simple as you can get for a check.
  8. The wood buck is to roll the sheetmetal edge for the engine intrusion into the cab. Nice round edge looks better then squared off sheetmetal. Once welded up will look more "stock".
  9. hmmmm, when to buy my flights....
  10. yah I still have parts, please PM me with any future needs to keep the forum clear of parts requests..
  11. You can always test the spring function with a torch, gently heating the spring to check its action/reaction.
  12. Yah, it's been suggested the pedal area might need to change. I won't know till I get the floor in and figure out how it all flows with steering, seat location and pedals. I do have extra room in the cab to move back since the cab is longer.
  13. the circled is welded in at a place where it appears to be impossible to remove your parts. As others have said, its a wiggle thing, finding the right angle/tip/stroke of luck to get parts out. I can't describe what I do when I take doors down for parts, but once you figure it out, a little light bulb goes off in your head and you've got it. Then of course, the gremlins dim it down for next time! Keep at it and keep up the good work!
  14. Well becasue stupid photobucket....I'll see if I can get it working right. The photobucket fiasco will plague us all till the end of time. updated: https://p15-d24.com/topic/48926-weatherstrip/?do=findComment&comment=547559 The longer video is in the downloads section of the forum and I've updated a link to that as well. Nice detail up-close VIDEO (big file) of where everything belongs on the doors and well, the rest of the cab.
  15. yah there is a center split in the top I'll have to weld up. Since the sides are NOT square to the top (verified off the old firewall I removed), getting that all dialed in would have cost me time and metal I didn't want to spend.
  16. spent my weekend getting the requisite cuts on my fingers and stabs in as well...but I learned a few things this weekend: Minnesota sports had a good weekend (Wild win, Vikes win, Gopher hockey sweeps the Ugly Helmets, and Gopher football beat Penn to stay undefeated) My air shear handles 16ga no problem My electric nippers handles 16ga no problem My neighbor challenges me every step on this project to take it up one step better (more on that later when I can show a picture) Building a firewall is time consuming 4x8 16ga sheets are HEAVY and cantankerous.
  17. there are plans here on the forum for a stock heat shield and I know there is at least one company (VPW I think) that repops them
  18. welcome, I look forward to your progress as you make him YOUR panel truck!
  19. you talking about the stepped catch that screws to the B pillar? Or the inner door mechanism? No repops I know if, try a post in the classifieds section and see if someone has a spare.
  20. sorry...coffee is horrible....no idea how anyone can stomach that evil brew
  21. that just doesn't add up
  22. You can always give VPW a call. They actually likely know the answer, or at a minimum give you dims of their parts for you to compare your bed sides to.
