    Hi everyone.

    I just thought that I would introduce myself and my new truck.
    My name is KJ and I just bought a 1975 3/4 Ton with a flat bed and a big block of some kind. I plan to use this truck for towing and yard and house work.
    Here are a few pictures of the new truck.

    I have been playing with it and trying to figure out all of the strange things that previous owner did. I am also having problems getting it to run well but I will ask questions a little later:wink1:

    nice truck, ya'll up there have tons of trucks left, its crazy

    looks like a bunch of aftermaket stuff on that engine, possibly too much, especially with the intake and carb

    if the engine is stock as far as heads and cam and such go then id think about putting stock intake and carb back on it, for starters
    i bet it eats gas alot currently

    good luck and welcome to CK5

    Hey duanel, I have not been out to the seven mile offroad area in the truck yet. I have been there and seen people playing when I was mountain biking but I haven't had the truck long enough to play.

    R77K10 you probably have a very good point. I haven't really looked at the gas consumption yet I am still trying to figure out what it wrong with it and get it to run well before I worry about that. I bought the truck about two weeks ago and right now I am just trying to cure the engine problems.

    So far this truck and I don't see eye to eye, I want it to run well and it seems to be happy just the way it is:rolleyes:
