any observations, suggestions?
Looks good. Fired it up yet?
Cool Beans Ya you fire it yet?
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!
You got robbed!! I wouldnt have paid a dime over $249 .
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 ?
Just park it and get yer self a Toyota to wheel................
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.
Whatcha asking fer it?
cool deal ,trail rig?
May end up being a temporary home.
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.
John (clarkjw24) has one that I'm gonna pick up sometime this week, but I will keep you in mind. Just in case.
Oh no haha.I know tha feeling I was coming back from Fayetteville Sunday trying to figure out a way to sleep in the soft top
Yeah! I was looking at that top also, but chose to get the K5 instead.
when I showed the wife the price of a new top she "KINDA" understood haha
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.
Funny, John says the same thing............
That I'm a moron?
