    I think I finally found out what that noise was coming from the front end.
    No wonder the stearing was wandering a bit...

    The rear bracket in this pic is cracked. Does anyone have one laying around???

    I have been DD'ing this thing for 3 weeks now and was just hooking up a strap to pull a stuck Ford out and noticed it. I just drove the wife and kid to tha park yesterday. Got very lucky that nothing happened.

    A rodent of some sort had eaten a hole in the vent line where you couldn't see it. Water and sand in the tank. We finally dropped the tank and ran new lines and added a fuel/water separator.

    Springs and bushings are in the shed.


    Since you're going with the B-52's, any chance you have the bracket??
