Bummer. I did a little P.M. I had a squeaky belt tensioner.....WD 40. Checked a few bulbs......bypassed my heater core with a 5/8ths OD barbed elbow....and removed the old one. It has had a small vapor leak for some time now. Will pick up a new one this week......Going boating tomorrow.

Will probably change the plugs soon. Truck has been a little sluggish lately. I use a little oil....so my plugs are probably fouled a little bit.

Use a socket and breaker bar on the harmonic balancer bolt to turn the engine over. Remove the spark plugs to make it turn over easier. Buy or make a remote starter hook up so you can use the starter to turn the engine over.

well actually it just took me about an hour to figure out that i'm an idiot. It was still in gear. chalked the tires put her in nuetral and the crank spins. So does my rotor, so the timing chain didn't break, i'm back to the drawing bored on what caused the pop/bang and sudden engine kill. Thanx though

Adjusted my cockeyed, frowning front bumper. Much better. Started to adjust my cockeyed rear bumper but the warden (er, wife) came home...

I got tired of the harsh ride of my '94 so I decided to install a couple of Bostrom suspension seats. It's my daily work truck and I haven't had a sore neck since.

Not a full bench seat but I do have the 40/20/40 bench and its not bad for me. However its a pavement queen.

Edit: Just looked into some of those Bostroms and man those things look comfortable on the higher end options! Do you happen to know if I would be able to get suspension brackets for my current styel bench seat?


Edit: I found this for 250/350 applications.

Mine got a bath, a few paint touch ups and waxed. After my daughter goes back to the wicked witch's ( my ex) truck is gonna get all the seams pumped full of drain oil. I's a little messy but it helps fight the rust monster.

I looked into those also, thinking I could adapt the air pump for the lumbar support in my bench seat as a pump for the air suspension seat. Didn't know if that would work so went another way. You could just call them and see what they say. I would say those would not work on a bench seat but I don't know.

Whats the proper way to go about adjusting the striker? Currently my doors do no shut completly without slamming them. I have tried adjusting them but havent had much luck getting the door shut without having to slam it for it to shut completly. I hate the rattling from the doors when going over bumps!!

no idea either really. I will look further into it once that time comes. I have a bunch of other stuff that I want to get done first to the truck.

Is it safe to assume you mean door hing pins? If so do they install just like a regular run of the mill house door hing pin?
