  1. Can't see the video...says its private?
  2. Pilot house trucks are super easy to steer. She'd have no problem 😊
  3. Sweet! I've never seen one of those before. 👍
  4. I wouldn't drive that beauty on sloppy roads either. My car on the other hand rusted out 60 years ago lol. Still clear here, but my brother is enjoying the Meadowbrook yet! 😊
  5. 11-30: I got three of the four anchor bolts off of the rear brakes using my trusty Craftsman impact. The the last one is soaking, and I'm sure will be a bear to the very end. Can't say I didn't do anything. 😋
  6. 11-29: I have the day off today, plus it's 50F, so we had to take the truck out. When I filled up with gas a woman filling her car approached me and said she liked my truck. She asked what year it was and if I was going to paint it. I told her I was going to leave it as is and that I actually use it to haul things, which she was pleasantly surprised to hear. She said all I need is a wreath for the grill... not a bad idea! Then it was on to Fleet Farm for a couple of Christmas presents.
  7. The previous owner did a lot of the work on my truck. Radiator flush, thermostat, etc. So I don't know what installing the VPW one would entail. Someone will chime in.
  8. Try the VPW 180. 160 is too cool for decent heat. My truck has never overheated with its 180 thermostat even in the hottest weather. And I'm grateful for the heat now that the weather is cold
  9. 11-27: Out to the city compost with two full loads. Most came from the neighbor whom I volunteered to help since he doesn't own a pickup. Wish I had enough to haul so it would take me all day 😋 First pic we're waiting for the train.
  10. The tree looks strangely small in that pic. But its actually well over 8 feet tall and medium fatness. Weird angle 😋 Happy Holidays to you as well!
  11. 11-26: This afternoon we used the B1C to haul our Christmas tree... something I was really looking forward to. The place was packed, and a lot of people were looking at my truck. Kids were pointing at it and smiling. It was a fun time. Although I don't have any postcard pics, here's some fun ones 😊 Pic 1 and 2: warming up at home.
  12. Looks like I have lost some and kept some. Not much I can do about it at this point. I would hope that one of the moderators or owner of the site would expand how much we could post so we don't run into problems like this. I'm certainly not the only one that has reached the limit.
  13. Were the wheel cylinders NOS or new production? Do you have a link, or was it a random eBay purchase?
  14. Happy Thanksgiving to you as well 🦃👍
  15. Bill, that did the trick! I'm back in business now, thank you,!👍
  16. Thanksgiving Day: Out for a sunny ride with the kids. Stopped by the lake for a couple of photos. Heater on medium. The last three photos were from last weekend. Stopped by the new KwikTrip, and my two youngest kids playing in the bed of the truck while I worked on it.
  17. I don't have the option of 3MB. I went from 3MB to 1.5 to .8 for some unknown reason. Otherwise I previously had no problems down sizing my pictures to fit.
  18. 11-21: I'm attempting to share photos via an outside link because my picture size keeps dropping drastically to the point where I can't even post a picture on the forums. So let me know if you can get to this link. So my son and daughter liked playing with the soccer ball in the truck bed while I worked on it. I got underneath and tightened up every bed nut and bolt. One nut had worked its way off so I replaced it. All were loose. I also put a shim behind my mirror bracket because even fully adjusted it was too low. Now it's perfect. Later my son and I drove to the new Kwik Trip to get a snack. https://www.amazon.com/photos/share/YMvr66IEJHLtFOZXau9VPigvA08gUEK1RAwPc0FpHLJ
  19. 11-20: After the new straps were installed my son and I went to pick up my daughter from work (first pic), then on to my favorite place...the compost to drop off some leaves, etc.
  20. 11-20: Thanks to Dave72dt I have new hood straps. Someone mentioned 17" for the length. That was a no-go, at least for my truck. 18 1/2 inches was about perfect. I burned the ends of the straps to keep them from fraying, and took a hammer and punch to the cowl bracket on the driver side as it was all bent up. The last picture is the old straps.
  21. Part of our cruise took us down by the lake. Second pic is after our cruise in the garage. Sorry I had to crop the heck out of the photos...the site is only allowing 1.53mg or less instead of 3? Not sure why.
  22. 11-19: B1C needed a new battery. Got that done, then did some alley cruising with my son looking for old cars. Spotted a mid-60s Buick and an early 80s Impala or Caprice. The truck's heater was nice. It was super chilly. I really enjoyed driving the truck, listening to the whine of the transmission, the steady purr of the engine, and feeling the smoothness of every turn. My son mentioned he likes the sound of the transmission. Here we are post-alley getting a snack. 😊
  23. Congrats! Gives me hope 👍
