I can't think of the name for places to dump off cars and trucks, and parts (like pick n pull), so I just used junkyard... There is a place in my town named "Overpass Wrecking Yard' and they have numerous trucks and vans in there (a lot of the trucks with axles intacted) and also a semi-large oil/gas/water truck (don't know what it is, but it has a big tank behind the cab) which I would guess would have 1 ton axles (d70/d80 and d60?) it's from the 80's i'm pretty sure, definitly not the newer body styles. But my question is, how do wrecking yards work? Are the public (me) allowed to come in and take stuff (or buy, however the owner wants it to be) or is it just suposed to lay there? There is also someones properyty 5 minutes from my current house with a lot of older vehicles laying around. But it's someones property, don't think it is a junkyard (no signs) but the building is a smaller warehouse. Thinking of dropping by these pllaces eventually (when I get my skills build up for identifying parts, and getting my courage up to go) because I would think there could be a few parts (axles!) to pick up. Also, tell me if I am right...if a truck has a dually rear, it is most likely going to be a D70 right? Or did D60's come in the rear of duallys too? 14bff? Also, is there a guide on the internet (simular to ck5's axle guide) to help identify engines (gas, and deisel) or what? What about trannys and transfercases? I know I could always ask on here, but when I go I wouldn't have a PC with me. ALTHOUGH I could bring a camera, take pics, post 'em up here, ask if the part(s) are worth getting, then go back (and pray they are still there) and pick em up if I have the cash. 'Scuse me if I sound dumb, I have never gone to a junk yard, wrecking yard, or anything to look for parts. And most likely I would go with my self (friends aren't into trucks, and a lot of them are lazy...) Also, can someone tell me in the next few months in this post, tools you would bring when you are scouting for engines, trannys, transfercases, axles, and misc parts? To disasseble and whatnot? Thanks, sorry this is soo long.
