    Photos of 69-74 Rear License Plate Bracket?

    I'm trying to figure out what to do about a license plate frame for my rig when the top is off and the fixed rear tailgate plate I got from CCOT is installed: The zip-ties are a hack. One option is to pull the bracket that is on my ambulance doors off and mount. The downside would be...

    Hard breaking pulls hard right!

    (OOPS: Title should say "pulls LEFT". Brain fade.) My '78 has discs on the front and drums on the rear. The disc conversion was done by CCOT in the '90s but I replaced the calipers when I rebuilt the front end (see my Fix-it thread in my sig for details). A few times recently I had the...

    POLL: Which Bumper Looks Better on Uglina

    EDIT: I've decided. Until/If I get a winch, I'm sticking with the OEM bumper. It is back on Uglina. I just like the classic look too much. If/When I get a winch, I will buy a HFS winch bumper (or similar). Thanks for all the input folks! Use the voting to help me decide which bumper to...

    Powder Coating firms near Seattle/Bellevue, WA

    In the past I've used Powder Vision in Preston Washington for powder coating. See my sig for a link to my rig and the work they did. I was quite happy with their work. I need to get some more parts done and Powder Vision's website has disappeared. This makes me nervous. I've called them and...

    Oil pan install question

    Quick newbie question for replacing the oil pan: Do I put the liquid sealant (FIPG) on the oil pan side of the gasket or the block side or both? I have read all the tech articles and old forum posts and the FSM but given i've never done this before it's not clear to me.

    Dropping transmission on a '78

    So I'm planning on dropping my tranny/tcase so I can replace the seal between them and potentially the access gaskets on the tcase if needed. It was my understanding that to do this I needed to remove the tranny hump cover inside the truck first. So tonight I set about removing the seats...

    Radiator draincock cocked up

    Ok, this is supposed to be simple. I want to drain my radiator. Simple: - Find draincock (noob, so I have to look) - Put bucket underneath - Turn draincock - Watch fluid drain out But on my rig it ain't so simple. There's no cock. Just a brass 14mm plug. So I remove it expecting...
