That is a good day. A little sideways action in a big truck is always a little fun and no ticket is even better.

Replaced the door latch on my brothers 91 F250. Just didn't hook up the lock actuator being they are seized. Once the truck is running might get new ones.

Greased the hinge area of my tailgate and did some lubing of the handle pivots as well.

No more hanging tailgate handle, and everything latches/moves like day 1 again.

Also cleaned the cab out, and did a thorough cleaning of the windshield.

I got the joy of finding out the hard way my truck had its original starter. It was so covered in grime I didn't know where the bolts were. I had to gunk the thing to find them and use about 2 1/2 feet of socket extensions with a swivel to clear the crossmember and exhaust y pipe

Are you from the Edmonton area? I'm on the north end of the city if you need someone to look at the truck if your far enough away

The mechanic installed my Redhead steering box for me today. The steering wheel actually feels like it's connected to something now, and the wheel is easier and smoother to turn (I never even noticed that before, just the play). The truck is so much easier to control now. It's an expensive piece, but money well spent

I'm taking the truck back Monday for an alignment check and to get the steering wheel bolted on straight. Gonna try and track down the death squeak again too, I asked the mechanic if he could find it but he had no luck.

it took me a few days to stop turning crazy through the turns after i installed mine.after a bit,i just got used to the truck correcting itself and stopped over correcting due to the slop i had before lol.
im keeping my eyes peeled for another group buy to come up for log truck.she's just as sloppy as chip was,if not worse.
i dunno what it is about these 9th gen steering boxes but both my old f150 and my old mans f150 both got the sloppy steering just over 100k miles too.

I took my canopy off yesterday and sealed the windows. Three out of five were leaking when it rained. When I put it back on I used tape to seal it to the truck box. Hopefully, no more water inside the box.

Started ripping my motor apart. Got the intake manifold off, stock exhaust manifolds off and heads. Heads could use a little help as they have a few broken spark plugs, but in great shape otherwise. manifolds are surpisingly in great shape too. I am going to be putting a lot of this stuff for sale as I am going with aftermarket heads, intake and headers.

Changed the oil, adjusted the steering box, checked fluids, tightened up the rear pinion--either things are starting to wear or the pinion nut backed off. Had a nice growl on decel but 1/8th turn tighter on pinion nut cured that. Whether that growl returns or not I'm curious to find out. If it does, I'm thinking 4.10 gears are in my future to match 33x10.5's.

Swapped my hood out today since the truck had a hood scoop installed at some point and therefor, tons of tiny holes I didn't want to weld up... Just so happens my buddy is cleaning out his dad's car hoard (I wish I had the cash and a place to put some of the cars, SO much cool stuff going for chump change) which includes a couple brick nose parts trucks. Found a crusty F150 in the back of the lot with a straight hood with a bitchin Lund bug deflector attached, tachometer cluster and we dug a straighter driver's fender than I got out of the weeds to boot all for the princely sum of $60 bucks.

Swapped out the cluster last weekend, wrecked my shoulder swapping the hood out today since I didn't have it propped right and it tried to fall as I was removing the spring bolts (and had for some reason undone the hinge bolts first, why I did this I really don't know, as it's the wrong freakin' way) and I tried to catch it.

Nothing some Advil and Rainier can't fix though though, bug-flector with the visor is just plain right on this era truck, one step closer to paint. Need to get the better driver's fender on and mudded up and my flatbed slammed on.
