    Project - Exhaust Renovation - Ceramic Coating by Twisted Steel Performance

    Darn, too bad I didn't send over the three into two manifold piping off the 74 Triumph T-150 trident, them single wall motorcycle pipes always turns blue. Too late now, the bike had been run before I bought it and been run some more since I got the clutch/transmission back together. I`m sure...

    I think I need a new alternator!

    I know this probably does not pertain to any of this. The DOT would run a lot of lights on their 6.5 diesel units, usually one ton duallies with a dump box, setting idling at a work zone with the top lights going and they would burn through a couple of alternators a summer. maybe they would have...

    Project "Johnny Cash"

    Toms Truck

    Hello Thomas, welcome to the forum. How many miles is there on the unit ? Might be best to get the wheels off the ground and pull calipers and drums and do an inspection of components. If brakes dont surge when stopping and all the components looks to be in good condition, remove rear slack...

    Fuel supply line upgrade??

    Crank no start

    When I had the pump removed from My truck, after bleeding the low pressure side, cracked fuel lines at all the injectors I could easily get to, then cranked for maybe a minute and fuel than began to pulse from the fittings, tightened the lines back up and it took right off. Missed for a little...

    Electric fuel pump/lift pump

    I have one of these facet fuel pumps setting in a coffee jug all sealed up to keep out the dirt. it was on My 2000 K3500 when I had bought the truck. I installed a fuel pressure gauge and it scared the crap out of Me, at highway speeds, about 70 MPH, it would run on zero pounds of pressure. It...

    Over head in the cab.

    Thank You NVW. Now when the weather gets a little nicer maybe I`ll get that rifle rack installed and then it`ll be removed from the garage. LOL As for the roof rack, I still need to make up My mind on that, just not quite sure how that would look, and, I have no real need for one, like...

I just think its easier...

    Over head in the cab.

    Just wondering if anyone knows what is above the headliner on My 2000 K3500. This is the same body style as like the 98 year of all the GM trucks. I would like to install an overhead rifle rack but I do not want holes going through the exterior roof.

    1969 IH 1300D 4X4 - Pump Truck

    On the 59 Dodge, I switched from the bend over the nut locks to the perforated washer and nut with the peg types of locks, then, the outer nut is just a jam device to keep it all from falling apart. LOL I figure that old Dodge is going to be in the family for a very very long time and I did not...
