replaced my drivers seat reclining gear/bracket

I also resoldered my headlight switch. All lights would blink on and off repeatedly when turned to auto lights. It works great now, props to sniperdude Headlight Repair

Now when I turn off the truck, lights left in the auto position, it takes a long time for the lights to turn themselves off. On my 94 they would turn off in about 15 secs. Is there a way to change how long the lights stay on after you exit and lock the truck? Or is it a DRB dealer thing?

Today I burped the coolant system some, sea-foamed it, changed the oil.
Oil filter was a bear to get off, discovered someone put RTV on it for some reason.


I also discovered that my radiator has a leak, somewhere. It all pools down at the bottom and drips off. It's not a horrible leak, just leaves little wet spots wherever I park and little bit of steam when it's cold out and hissing sound after running. My guess is I'm going to need to replace the radiator soon

I discovered my tranny fluid leak by the radiator is much worse than I thought.

RTV on the oil filter? WTF?!?!? When I saw the picture, I hadn't read the text above it, and I said to myself, "what the hell is the blue crap on the filter?"

Oh, I also passed the emissions test. Maybe tomorrow we prep the interior (finally) for the bedliner, flush out the burnt brake fluid, fix the trans fluid leak, and maybe think about fixing the drivers door. If I get bored, I think I'll look further into making the drivers inside door panel pretty again.

There's never time to do it right, but there's always time to do it over.

Wait, that's a Fram filter. Maybe they were trying to fix the filter.

rtv on the filter? crazy.

anyway, swapped out my battery tray today. that thing was done. so yea, i've been driving for 3 months without my battery secured. stupid, i know. started setting up my cb radio. placed everything in its place. just need to pull the dash to get a constant voltage line and acc line, and the cb radio will be good. also began working on my off-road lights and kinda got stuck. i'll start a thread about it in a bit.

Bought new front pinion bearing

image-260229540.jpg

Got it stuck. It's still stuck. It's so stuck I could call insurance and say it was stolen and no one would ever know. It's so stuck I don't know anyone with a capable enough 4x4 to even to to where I got stuck to winch or yank me out.
