    Yep! Busted it off as soon as I got home from work, Sounds purdy good too.
    Gonna check it out a little more tomorrow, see what the tranny needs. I hope it's just gonna take a couple of seals and a filter. Problems I've found so far...
    missing front driveline
    locking hub on passenger side, automatic(full time?) on driver side
    carb needs cleaning or rebuild
    steering column needs to be tightened
    transmission, as previously stated
    tires are slicker than owl sh!t
    repair rust in floorboard at drivers seat
    and I'm sure there's more, but all in all a pretty solid truck and for $250 I'm shickledtitless!:woot: :woot: :woot:

    You got robbed!! I wouldnt have paid a dime over $249:D .

    Hack the fenders, shackle flip, springs in the front. Get the deer head stencil from CB to finish it off.

    If you can't find a front D-shaft we can build you one. What size tires you looking for ?

    Looks like the tranny is toast. Looks like I'm gonna have to give McBee K5 a call, if I'm not mistaken he said he has a 350. As for the tires I'm thinking 35's 12 or 14. Just wanna get it going so I don't loose interest.

    I've got one in the shop here that worked when pulled. Maybe put a new pump seal, tranny pan gasket and filter in it.

    Offer #2 for a TH-350. It'll be coming out of the Goose when I get back from URE. Fresh rebuild and reverse manual valve body.

    As far as the wife is concerned, the price of the truck still doesn't justify me getting it, just thinks I'm a moron. I'm ok with that.:D
