    Someone did a crappy brake job...

    ...the slack adjuster ratchet dog and spring are missing, and the tywraps betray that it was a conscious decision!

      I solved the brake adjuster issue. NAPA sold me a special-order one and then told me three days later that it actually wasnít available, including calling two other warehouses. They wanted about $5.00 for the part, and $10.00 shipping. Huh.



      So I made one; it took about 2 Ĺ hours.

                Exhaust leaks at the pipe flanges, air coming into the cab with exhaust fumes, driverís side seat sagging, loose transmission shifting; all made for a special ride. I will soldier on!

                    They've made pickups in the last 10 years?

                      SMALL MILESTONE:

                      I have finally gotten all the wheels blasted and powder-coated, gotten all the tires mounted and balanced, and gotten the second spare wheel and used tire mounted and balanced.

                      Tires and wheels are done- this was bothering me, because I could not drive the truck without them...!
