Re: IHWR PHOTOS

Great pics!

Why is Timmy holding a transmission top cover? Were they working on it? Or it’s just a part brought for someone in need?

Re: Eds truck

Also this new hitch doesn’t go in enough to pin it. I have options: I could elongate the hole, could remove metal from the receiver on the bumper (either completely, or bottom only), I won’t remove metal from the new hitch, that’ll weaken it. If I elongated the hole, the hitch pin would only be hold...

Re: Eds truck

Top picture. I think the strongest way would be to go to the same hole the hitch ball goes through. The holes in the tubing are too big, and it’s only about 3/16” thick. I need to see if the hitch ball stud will reach through both pieces. Middle picture. The top could tie in to the two 1/2” bolts at...

Re: Eds truck

I replaced the drivers side rear wheel cylinder yesterday, it was leaking. Today I adjusted the brake shoes back out, I had to back them off to get the drum off. Also bled the brakes today, it took a long time to get the fluid moving, then to get all the air out. But seems good now.
