    What did you do to your deuce this week?

    Yeah, I know about the "little bit of coolant at a time" thing. Just curious. My block drain is further back towards the flywheel housing. Thanks again.

    What did you do to your deuce this week?

    From the connection at the rear of the block, where did you route that hose? The way I have mine routed, wouldn't it basically bypass the thermostat when the stat is closed? Feeding hot water to the heater and then returning the water to the rad side of the stat? Sorry if I am making it...

    What did you do to your deuce this week?

    I still have not found any good advice on this. My AC compressor is in the way of plumbing it the way the instructions say to do it.

    I can't use the ports shown in the diagram as my A/C pump is in the way.

    What did you do to your deuce this week?

    So I have read up on the heater installs and such. I plumbed mine like so: Green and red to heater. What I am wondering is can I use the purple and yellow ports for a coolant filter? And do I need to change the green port the to lower port in the lower right of the photo, on the water pump...

    What did you do to your deuce this week?

    Yes sir. Mine is sitting in the yard with the sprinkler under it now!! It was fun but clean up is never fun! On to the PlyDeuce. I have been working on the A/C and power steering. The A/C system is a bastard of Gm/Ford/Amana/and god knows what else parts. The GM compressor mounted up like it...

    What did you do to your deuce this week?

    I've had goo luck with this design from my rock crawling days. I won't have a problem of being too low for a jack when the air bag fails! I have this same style "swing arm" suspension on my 97 F350. It's been great for the past 8 years with only minor airline/fitting problems.

    What did you do to your deuce this week?

    My dad calls it the Douche-mouth.......Not funny!! Hahah. Yes, it needs a track bar/panhandle bar/insert name here. This is the basic idea. I build the trailing arms out of 2"x4" 1/4" wall. The front pivot bushings are For SD front leaf spring bushings.

    What did you do to your deuce this week?

    I ended up using the deuce dash and trans/tcase covers in the Plydeuce. It's coming along. I need to have it moveable on the 9th for a VIN inspection. The rear suspension is mostly finished. It is a Peterbilt-style low air leaf set up. Simple, great ride quality and easy of maintenance.

    What did you do to your deuce this week?

    Thank you sir!! For sure! I am trying to get it moveable so I can trailer it to the State Patrol for a VIN inspection. They used to come to your house and do them but stopped a week ago.... Always a day late and a dollar short! Just the front. I wanted to 4-wheel steering but I am spending...

    What did you do to your deuce this week?

    I drive mine up and down the streets of my very small town. It has no doors, no roof, no grill/rad, no bed, no plates, no nothing..... Everyone loves it. They all honk and wave. I think it would be rude to call them all hillbillies or rednecks.... haha

    m35a2...No go no mo,,,,,

    Yep, the shutoff shaft can move freely in and out but the shutoff rod/lever can still be stuck. Pull the cover and have a looksee. If the lever and rod do no move freely, make it! ;) Good luck. Mine had a sticky fulcrum lever and sliding sleeve in the governor.

    Flat towing M135

    Hence the 15mph max when towing. Pulling the rear joint of the drive shaft is not a mind bending experience. Pull the one joint loose and tie it up, tow away,as far and as long as you like!

    Fuel Shutoff Rod Position Question

    I found that the fulcrum lever and sliding sleeve were hanging up on something(probably gummed up oil/fuel) I pulled the governor off and took some brake cleaner in there to remove the scummy oil. That was all I did. Reinstalled it and everything was ship shape! There is nothing in the FDC that...
