it only goes to 1/2 tank
1/2=full
1/4=1/2

And Hell, Ford makes a more comfortable bed than half the mattress manufacturers do. As long as the radio works, or if you like the sound of rain on sheet steel, it's a pretty relaxing place to be.

Blew out my left rear brake hardline. Was in a parking lot across from NAPA, and he had the line for me by the time I picked up the DOT3, but he didn't have a line wrench, and my regular box wrenches just stripped what was left of the fittings, so I thanked the powers that be for the split reservoir and the clutch pedal, filled it back up, and went back to pick up my mower trailer, stop at an auction, buy some brand new all terrain 235's for fifty bucks a pop, and eventually park it.

I actually had thought my master cylinder finally finished crapping out(as I've posted about elsewhere, recently), then I noticed the trail.

So, a question: Can a failing metal brake line cause the problem I've been having(full reservoir until the blow-out, pedal to the floor, having to pump it up to get real brake power, and only front brakes locking up if they're not pumped)?

And to get back on topic: Tomorrow, I'll be replacing a brake line and bleeding the whole system, potentially for the first of several times if it turns out I need a master cylinder and/or wheel cylinder and/or any other of the cruddy, rusty metal lines in my rear end.

On the 92 F150, I washed it up, and cleaned it up. On the 88 Bronk, I swapped in a 94 stang alternator. On my buddys 86 F250 we put 5" blocks out back, and some rancho shocks to match. The blocks were like an inch too high, but it looks good. The back is finally taller then the front. Someone put an add-a-leaf in the front so it sat super high.

Nope, I don't visit firearms discussion boards, my Persuader 500 is all stock and that's just fine for me - apparently for the drug-dealers across the street too, as after pointing it at one of their kids when they decided our house probably looks better on the inside than it does on the outside neither of them has ever been on our sidewalk And I'm about done with the front bumper, still needs a few more inches of welding, but that should be about all for a while. Tested the tire carrier as a pushing device today, there was no damage to the car's trunk lid, so I call it good Installed four smaller driving lights on the bottom of the bumper, they are only 55W each but they light up the road better than the four larger 100W offroad lights I took off - I don't really need my headlights no more!

Wow, that battery doesn't owe you anything then. Only batteries I have that last that long are in tractors, but they put out twice the cold crank amps my truck battery does.

Just finished replacing my left rear brake line, and flushing/bleeding both rear brakes.

And the inevitable test drive.
