Finally got the power steering pump swapped out. I no longer have to fight the wheel while driving down the road to remain in my own lane. I'm also thrilled to not hear the pump groaning and...

Not so much what I've done to my truck today, but what I did yesterday. Replaced the 30+ year old power steering pump with a new reman from Oreilly's. The truck steers nice and smooth again, without...

oddfordjunkie, I finally worked out why my carburetor was not wanting to idle. It seems that not only were the idle mixture screws backing themselves out of their bores, but the annular boosters in...

Tore apart the carburettor because I was having a hard start situation on warm shutdown. Seemed like the fuel was either percolating out of the bowl, or it was running down past the throttle blades...

I'm a trained IT technician. I can handle anything from network setup to building a PC and everything in between. What I'm currently doing is being a wage slave for a large auto-parts retailer.

Wow it has been a long time since I've thought to update my build. Since my last post a few things have changed about the truck.

Most recently I serviced the timing set. You would think after all...

My current dent was $500. Found it in "parts truck" condition, and have slowly been bringing it back from there. It was missing a goodly amount of stuff, and I'm thankful I saved it.:-X06

Let me amend this by saying I was talking out my rear end. Apparently my FE had never been apart in it's almost 40 years of life to replace the timing chain. So I had two days of prying, banging, and...
