  1. Great....its bad enough that I have to "compete" against Rob for having the most awesome toolages......now Brent's in the mix.....I gotta get a bigger garage. 😒 48D
  2. Add a link Paul.....or maybe put more information here. 48D
  3. But I'm into Mopars.....that's why I'm here. I don't understand. What kind of bot are you? I need you to flood the site with Mopar leads! 48D
  4. Since I know you personally Paul, I feel it's coming from the heart when I say....leave your truck cab the way iit is. You have a lot invested in that build, in that very cab. It's fine the way it is. If you decide to build a second truck.....make that your starting point. IMHO. 48D
  5. Toliet paper rack for the big Taco Tuesday make up party...... 48D
  6. Worked on my race truck today, "The Brick"........doing my best, to continue to domesticate the poor bastard. lol I sorted out a low-side bed for it, and unfroze a correct "side" mirror. The replacement mirror always bothered me....well, because I knew it was wrong. The correct mirror frame, casing, housing, which ever....has its pivot off center. I unstuck the pivot and got it ready for some shaping and new reflective glass. Its slightly larger too, but not much, .....so there you go. My truck is far from original, so who knows why an incorrect mirror would bug me. 48D
  7. Hmmmm.......restricted diesel particulate filter? 48D
  8. OK.....Thank goodness for Brent, Tim and Mark to keep me on my toes.... COVID-19 has kept me pretty busy out here......and not with the trucks! IWOYTD is normally in the last days of May, so the International Work On Your Truck Day #9 is ALL WEEKEND AND MONDAY!!! No excuses from me, its awesome to know its still a thing nine years later. The Five Rules: 1. Work on your truck. Not Mark's, but yours...unless you are Mark, then work on your truck buddy. Its not done....it needs a working pass side mirror. 2. Report what you did to the Forum, not the girl at the post office, she doesn't care, she's just trying to get the junk mail sent out. 3. Post a picture of what you did. Its all good, sitting in it counts.....but at least hold a hammer or something. 4. Explain how you got the truck, what inspires you about it. 5. Try to share the days experience as soon as you can!!! Sharing is caring!!!.....Believe it or not, your story could inspire one of us to get back to it! Your story could help build another truck!!! Good luck!!!! ITS HERE NOW!!! 48D
  9. *sigh* We lost greybeard a few years back and Don Coatney just at the end of this last year........ They both posted great stuff, glad you're using the search option my friend. 48D
  10. 1948-53 Dodge Truck: There's a U bracket that all the front sheet rest on. The U bracket rests on the cross member for the engine. The U bracket is shimmed with washers to bring the front fender and doors jams inline with each other. I've never seen more than 2 or so washers per post. 48D Enjoying your thread Thrashfit.
  11. This is the stand I took the motor off of. The 230 is a teaching motor, so to speak. I might get it running, I don't know. The stand is made from a wrecked frame that I welded some legs on. I didn't know I'd use the dang thing so much, so I'm welding up the weak spots and then painting it. The engine will go back in and continue to entertain those who want to learn. 48D
  12. What's funny is I made an engine stand a few years back out of a cut frame (sold the back half) and just lifted the engine off of it yesterday. I plan on cleaning the stand up and painting it today. Guess I should show a picture of the levitating connector jammer deal. gimme a few minutes........ 48D
  13. I use a 2 point lift attachment. The tabs are flat steel and allow the Head Bolts to be torqued down pretty tight. I also remove the Doghouse so the lift height isn't to high. If you have a fluid-drive, and not a standard 3 or 4 speed....... you might consider taking just the engine. But usually they are removed together. Here's a series of videos I did on removing the Doghouse 10 years ago. links to the rest: Estrada MotorSports 1948-53 Dodge Trucks: 48 Dodge Truck Front Clip Removal part 2/4 Estrada MotorSports 1948-53 Dodge Trucks: 48 Dodge Truck Front Clip Removal part 3/4 Estrada MotorSports 1948-53 Dodge Trucks: 48 Dodge Truck Front Clip Removal part 4/4 48D
  14. I covered that in a Youtube video back 2016.......I'm sorry you missed it Jocko. 48D Estrada MotorSports 1948-53 Dodge Trucks: Steering Bracket
