redneck truck repair

okay guys here's the repairs on the 1990 that almost left me stranded on the way back from the ATNs

how to jack up a truck redneck style
rear main removal-it was just spinning

you don't have to drop the trans to do a rear main--just slide it back


bad flywheel/flex plate one tooth gone
then we found broken exhaust manifolds


figured both broken time to go to the parts truck -headers
