    Thanks for the pics you sent, I phoned Vintage Air tech support and they said to just use a regular thermostat so will check that out next spring, I also talked to the head mechanic at the dealership I bought the motor from and he said the same thing.

    Hi Rusty, I started a thread about 4 wheel disk brakes and was hoping you would chime in. I am hoping to get some feedback from you on what you used for your brake system and how it seems to work for you. Happy 4th of July!

    that sucks about the leak! i don't recall your spacer but when u have time i would love to hear about it! i will have to find that restrictor somewhere as i didnt get the pump with mine. i have the 5.8l ford so my pump will be from that. i don't know what i will end up with but thats a ways down the road anyway. i am currently coating the frame and bottom of cab with CHASSIS SAVER. i like the protective finish but brushing it on doesn't produce a pretty finish! its kinda like a plastic coating, and tough stuff, thats my goal for now. then get the cab back on and go from there.
    i would like to know the backspacing on your wheels also. i have a nice set of WELD DRAGLITES but they might be too wide in relation to backspacing. they are thick at the hub and i will need longer wheel studs to use them. they do bolt on but not by much, maybe a 1\2" of lugnut on the stud. again not a priority now, but just another hurdle for the darksider. I want to see some pictures!!!!

    awesome! i hate to be a pain, but that pressure relief valve is something i don't have or even know what it is. sometime can can get me a picture of that or a link or whatever, just so that i know what it is?
    So do your upper control arms sit on the bumpstops? mine do, and i have had me and my son on the framehorns (aprox 420 lbs) to simulate a total wieght on the front. it will articulate, but if you stop bouncing it returns to the bumpstops. not alarming yet but just comparing.
