Added a 10lb Powertank and highlift jack to my rig! Swapped out my water pump, but found a leak in my nice aluminum radiator. And I was lookin forward to a cruise to the beach.

One was right behind where the transmission skid plate bolts up, and the other was right behind the rear spring hanger. I used a long L-shaped Allen wrench to get the dirt broken up so it could be flushed out where it was pretty built up. Hope this helps.
Might be a good time to take the belly pan bolts out one by one and grease up the threads if you haven't already. Also check those spots inside the front shock towers that hold water and mud.

Drove it this morning and it started making flapping sound from the rear axle, pulled over and seen nothing out of the ordinary, drove another few miles with the noise on and off then got a pop and silence. Limped another mile home to put it up and diagnose it when I have time. I think it was jealous that I washed my 2 trucks and not it. Still hoping it is something in the drum brake and not a wheel bearing or locker problem.

Not a bad idea, thanks.

Here's hoping it's nothing too serious .

Today's project was more road testing, some test hole shots, rebuilding the carb, re-wrapping the fuel pump fittings, and adding an insulator gasket between the intake manifold and carb. Loving the improvement so far .

I sat under mine awhile back with a socket set, and a can of anti-seize. I would pull a bolt, apply the anti-seize and then reinstall. I think I did everything that looked like it would come out that day.

Beat it to fit, paint it to match!

Went out to investigate tonight and found out that the shoe lining came off and allowed the shoes to overextend and let the equalizer bar drop down and rub the back of the axle flange. $23 dollars for new shoes and we should be up and rolling again.

Replaced the calipers, pads and both front brake lines. Now on to the passenger floor. Many holes, need to take the seat out and see just how bad it really is.

Started making a sheetmetal cross-ram intake for 2, 2150 carbs I had laying around. They are 1.08's, that were recently rebuilt, so the 360 should handle them.

I've also learned that sometimes... when people don't agree with you .... its best to hold them down and kidney punch them till they agree with you
