Well, I got the top ready to take off to put on my new tailgate, replaced a the bolts in the hood that were missing, put the grill on, fixed part of the dash that was falling off, and fixed the broken armrest.....today maybe I will install my CD player....
You might be a redneck if : you think the last words to the Star Spangled Banner are, "gentlemen start your engines"
Doing some cosmetic stuff on my 78 F100. Finally installed my window regulator (finally rolls up and down!), got some vent window handles, rear view mirror and door panels. It's been sunny out too so I want to scrap off to paint on my dash and repaint it
Wheee finally figured out where that smell of oil is coming from.... my rocker cover bolts were loose. Tightened all the ones I could reach for now. I'll have to get a knuckle head to get the back ones. I really dont want to take the manifold off.
I ordered some COP's today. Hoping that will fix my issue. Even not running full song that little 5.4 pulls 7k quite well. Little slow going up some hills but overall I'm Kind of impressed. Sure can turn some rpm's.

Found out yesterday what kind of TORQUE that engine has. I pulled a full size E150 about 1/2 a klick just idling. I didn't touch the gas at all.
But developed another issue, it seems that when I put my hazards on, it kills my battery, even if the truck is running... twice yesterday I used my hazards and then some time later I went to start it again, and it didn't want to turn over.
