Well, maybe having a big green truck keeps you out of trouble. Might be that for a while, you could take it on a weekly hour long ride and hold onto your wallet for a while just doing minor stuff. If the 6 year old has any interest in going for a ride with dad on a regular basis - it might...
Not sure how old your kids are, but I can say for sure when my guys were younger I wouldn't have been able to afford kids and green iron. With a little more age on me, now I have other people's kids that get to enjoy riding and playing. There is one family with several young'uns and they do...
I have already sent an email asking - and sadly my source has no more... The hard top that I purchased about a year ago had an aluminum skin. There is a military part number on a black plate riveted to it so it wasn't a "repro" part. I don't know if sheetmetal or aluminum was your plan if...
I think it would be fine as it is. OR maybe I should say I have seen much worse that was still functional.
I would look around and see what you can find for a replacement. Especially the syncros and bearings. May as well do it right!
The new seal looks reall well done for sure! It is amazing how a little shade tree fixin will solve a difficult problem.
I am of the opinion that your shift forks look a bit worn...
Those little tabs at the middle of the gears where they touch could be slowing down as you try to shift.
That's great news!
Sure is nice when something gets fixed without having to fix something else as a part of the process.
Even better that your "Soldier 2" (WIC aka Wife In Charge) was willing to come out and help...
That is just sooooo neat. Most of the little puppies that followed you home seem to be part of the same family. Makes it a little easier I suppose - especially when you need a few parts. The babies out there in the field all huddled together look so cute. Yeah, I know. Big trucks can't be...
Just fishing... If you turn off the ignition off, the electric fuel pump in the tank stops. Right?
Wonder if a couple of gallons of good clean fuel in a bucket or similar to the in and out ports on the IP - gravity feed - would prove the head is good or that the tank is nasty or maybe lines...
Definitely sounds like "gunk" of some sort is in there.
I really wish I had the waste water reclamation facility that the company I worked for had. It was really nice to be able to drop a steam wand into the tank and let it run for half an hour. The hot water and pressure would force the...
Depends on how much crud might have gotten suspended in the fuel and picked up and moved into the filters.
It was really weird on one of my trucks... Cranked it, drove it maybe a mile and parked it. It sat for another week or two.
Went to crank it again and the truck would sputter and...
Well that looks like it was a fun run! Happy that you made it home safe and sound.
Both of the little people have their smiles on, so it is a really good day!
You might look down in the fuel tank for indications of the creeping diesel crud.
Might be that some SeaFoam would limber it up the...
Looks like somebody had a problem sometime ago. It appears that they might have gotten a seal with a "wear ring" (rub ring?). Then it looks like it was welded to the axle? Just two spots is what I think I see? They should drive on and "stay put". No welding for sure!
If you can get that...
