I get to go out in the woods and look thru a five acre yard that this man" who passed away and now his wife wants it cleaned out". seems he filled it with cars and trucks from the early sixty's to the late seventy's. dont know why I brought that up , wonder if he has something with a 427 or cammer or....
Im going to dress warm... leave my truck running...take a thermos of hot coffee...if I wait till spring... I may not heve this "adventure" or others may be thinking the same thing, and I have a 150' cable on my tow truck ,and a 100' double hooker extension for it, logging tire chains, and a fifty foot tie off chain... and besides , playing in the snow has alway been a favorite pastime...even at 52. any parts you're looking for that you'ld want to drive to homer for? if they're available? thanks,bob
Hey if you find a '79 ford p/u in that yard let us know. My understanding is this one came with Dana 60 front axle and it maybe interchangable with '76 Chev K20 front axle, that bound up and needs work. Still it is going to take allot of work to clean out 5 acres of parts.
well,,,,, I wenrt out to the 'junk yard' finally after a few false starts. I have never seen a bigger mess . It is five acres, with a fence arround it , and instead of lining the cars up so you ,'or anyboby ' can get in and see any thing and pull parts or vehicles , he put them in ,side touching side and front touching back . 5 acres of inaccesable B-S-, had to be three hundred vehicles ,mostly foriegn cars , without moving all of them , you cant get to any of them. the good news is that , after climbing across on roofs and hoods to see if there was any thing worth doing that much work for , every thing was pretty much stripped or junk'd out or rusted out. It went from her stepson wanting 200 dollars for any vehicle I wanted , to, would I use my towtruck and take them to the land fill for any parts I wanted . With the price of gas and my time , I can buy any parts new and save money. I was so 'stressed' and distraught' and a hole bunch of other words that I cant spell , I had to force feed myself several beers, while smoking a real nasty smelling cigar, 'just to calm down' you understand, and to make sure I didnt have any post trauma. Thats my excuse and Im sticking to it ,respectfully , bob
