But this one is MINE.

The bed, stakes sides, bows and tarp are gonna get mounted on the chassis of my F100 to make the Mini Deuce and a Half of my dreams.

Got all my passenger side front suspension bushings replaced, but I am waiting on a thread extender for the 2" coil lift I am putting on her before I move onto the ds. Hopefully tomorrow I will finish up the ds!!!

Today I found out that I have teeth missing on my flexplate and I have 20 bucks saved up to fix it with, that should be enough right?

depends on if you are going to remove the flexplate yourself... The part is about 20, but a machine shop should press it on I think, I had Napa put on a new ring gear on my flywheel when I had it turned for a new clutch.

I came to the conclusion that Black interiors are not hotter than any other color interior. It all depends on how the sun shines on the vehicle.

I did'nt do it today but I recently installed my latest JY find! A stunning leather wrapped Ford steering wheel that I paid $20 bucks for! If any one needs a nice rubber wrapped or uncracked plastic one just PM me!

Good Luck!

Drove my 82 the 9 miles to work, like always. Will drive the 9 miles back in about 2 hours. May stop by the JY and look for a radio on my way home.

today i drove over to where my '84 f150 and dumpster project are stored. i stared at my '84 and wished it was done. i'm rebuilding the front end, but at a standstill till i get paid to purchase some unforeseen parts. so i planned on laying in the rest of the underdash wiring on the dumpster and switching over the m/t pedal supports to a/t... but washed my jeep instead and went home. i worked all weekend on family and friends vehicles and had no energy for working on my own today.

Good to know, mine was built stock too, I wasn't sure about putting an a different cam or anything like that.

How you doing milage wise on it? Mine gets about 14 with the egr and vac advance disconnected. (Egr is not connected because I don't have the pipe, and the vac advange is disconnected because the egr is disconnected, talk about chasing yuor tail.)

Drove the 85 f150 4x4 through some logging trails and skid roads in search of the elusive Columbian Black Tail Deer, more searching tomorrow!

Still rebuilding it, it's not registered yet so only test runs up and down the neighborhood.

Today I should be replacing the carburetor gaskets and then cleaning and regapping my spark plugs. Yesterday my truck seemed to have a miss at idle so hopefully this might help (it ran perfect at higher RPM though).

And I'm very happy to say that my transmission shifts better, is quieter and smoother running, and doesn't make any squealing noises after long trips, now that I've replaced the filter. I still have a tiny little leak at the pan for some reason (all the bolts are very snug), but it's nowhere near what it leaked before.

I drove about 60 miles to pick up a new-to-me stand up deep freeze. It gave me plenty of time to daydream about just how i want the interior. Tommorow i think i will go to the pick n pull to get what i need to fix my windows. On a related note, could I just hook up my battery directly to the power window motors to get them to roll up without blowing up the motors? I need new switches, but for the meantime, I just want the windows up.
