    Squeaky Balloon noise under passenger dash when accelerating

    Hi Erik. Glad you found the problem, from the video I was going to suggest a mouse with a kazoo. Or more exactly a mouse having chewed on the back side of some inaccessible rubber airline. Cheers Phil

    Need help with the oil change

    Just a hint on oil drain mess, I've found that the big plastic mortor tubs helps, cheap $17 big box or lumber yard. I put my normal oil drain pan inside. What ever misses is caught by the mortor tub. Rest of the time in lives under the major drip point of the truck in the garage.

    Check your axle ubolts

    Hi That was very nice of your truck to spit out broken U bolt where you would see it. So often they bury those loose bits where you won't see. Thanks for sharing. Cheers Phil

    Wood chassis/frame shims

    Hi When changing truck beds it is often necessary to replace the wood spacer. Problem I've run into is the holes don't line up and you can only drill just so many new holes. All the holes are for frame bolt heads. Finding oak spacers 3/4 inch thick and 2 1/2 wide is not a problem finding...

    Why so hard to shift gears

    Hi Do you have access to a clip on tachometer, like a timing light? If so take the truck up a gentle hill in 4th gear and floor the peddle at about 30 MPH If the tach picks up faster the road speed the clutch is slipping. Now why would this be more noticeable in 4th than lower gears...

    Why so hard to shift gears

    Hi A question what is the idle RPM? I've noticed with straight cut (non synchro) transmissions that if they are idling to fast they are hard to shift up through the gears. Also have noted that when double clutching down if the accelerator is weak and the engine is slow to burp up it is harder...
