    The WeenieWagun v3

    The name WeenieWagun came from a play on words from one of the other forums I frequent, WAguns. We would refer to one of the moderators Tahoe's as a glorified station wagun, word play on wagon....and when it came time for my projects, I found my screen name, and type of vehicle fit, so...

    WA Hagerty comes through - again

    After the last vehicle I insured with Hagerty was wrecked, I was a little leary going back to them, fearing rejection. Well, I started an online application, and they insisted I call. Thinking I was gonna be immediately flagged, the person that answered told me that they rejected my...

    Yet another fluids thread....

    Vacuum line sizes and locations

    I searched and didn't find anything on the sizes of the lines. I searched through the TMs, and cross referenced them to GM part numbers and got the sizes. Hopefully this will make things easier for those having vacuum issues.

    Remote brake fluid reservoir

    I see it's a popular mod and makes perfect sense. I've spotted a couple universal reservoirs itself for like $20 on amazon, but I have some questions. Normally, the MC reservoir is vented to atmosphere... Now, if you get a remote reservoir, and the reservoir now has a vented cap, that means...

    Anyone titled/registered a truck through the mail, in TX?

    I'm potentially looking at relocating to TX. I'm looking at titling a vehicle, and placing it in a trust. I don't wanna pay tax/title here, just to turn around a couple months later and pay it again in TX. Before I moved to WA I was able to title and register my vehicle in WA, despite being...

    Air assist issues

    I'm having some issues with air assist, and I'd like a second opinion. I can turn the wheel right, and I'll have full assist. If I turn the wheel LEFT, I not only have no assist, I feel like I'm having to fight the steering wheel to go back to center, like it wants to stay right. Thoughts?

    So, I've been thinking about the best way to make sure that a deuce is a reliable daily driver. I'm trying to make a 'To Do List'.

    Seal between NP208 and TH400

    I've been tearing through the TMs, and MULTIPLE times, I go to look for a part, and it shows, let's say, 1-12 parts labelled in the figure, but will only display parts 6,7, and 8.. Look in the index, and same thing. This has happened numerous times, and it's driving me insane. I can't trust...

    Air Force M35 differences?

    I'm looking at a 1987 M35A2... I've been told that all of the 87's were on an Air Force contract. What are the differences between the older pre-87 m35A2s? I've heard they have a knockout for landing lights, a heater, an air lock front axle, and a dual circuit brake system. Is that true? What...
