New fuel pump/filter
Restored gas tank
New fuel lines
Professionaly redone carb
New coolant lines
New vacuum lines
Blocked off carb heater
Idles like poo, fuel cut off solenoid wont work so we have it bypassed on. Only...
It's that time again! Next week is the first Tuesday of the month.
As promised, the location is on the west side of our region. I did just find out that Bad Daddy's is a chain. So, in my opinion we should find somewhere else for next time that's truly local. I'm not a fan of sending my...
I replaced the speakers with Memphis audio component speakers for the front and 2 ways in the rear. Prior to replacing them the drivers side rear was very low and distorted, I thought it was just the speaker but the new one does the same thing. I made sure I wired it right. Is it possible the...
I'm curious what are the signs of a bad lifter, I'm trying to track down what seems like more valve train noise than what I would expect in a recently rebuilt motor. Sounds find at idle and revving while I'm under the hood, pretty much like a throaty tractor, but I'm hearing 'something' when...
can someone give me some help I have a bad coolant leak on my 93. It seems to be coming from towards the back of the engine.
On my old 99 there was a small t fitting if I remember correctly that was the usual culprit. You mud guys sent me what I needed and was able to get the part from a...
My power steering pump in my '83 FJ60 has a significantly bad power steering leak. It is so bad that when it completely runs out of fluid and I try to refill it, it runs straight through it in about 3 or 4 days. I'm wondering whether or not it is best to have the pump rebuilt or just purchase...
Title basically states it.
I have a 68 Mustang with a 35 year old "bad" second paint job that I wanted to get back to the original paint job. There are a couple of spots of original "bleeding" through.
My original thought was to just go to a body shop and get it painted back to original.
I've always wanted my locking hubs to be red so I painted them today. I don't think it turned out bad. I figured it couldn't make it look any worse. It took me about 30 mins and cost me about 50 cents.
So...some of you may have seen that this 80 was for sale a few months ago. I got a torrent of interest but no solid bites. I'm kinda glad it didn't sell because since then it's developed a bad bottom end knock. So before I try and part it out I thought I'd see if anyone wanted to make an offer...
I bought this truck to steal the interior out of, it is mostly complete, and has the seats out of my 94 in it now.
was running/driving a few years ago, but the motor is now locked up, all electrical components were tested and working, trans should be good, brakes and steering feel solid.
So, I picked up a 92 to fix and flip and the clear coat on the hood and fender flares is terrible. I know some people black out the hood. That's kind of a niche market for whether people like it or not. Aside from an expensive commercial repaint, what other solutions are out there? What else...
I have an 87 mini truck that has a rotted out frame. The rear passenger spring hanger ripped off the frame at an event two years back. I am looking at options, either reinforce the frame, or cutting off behind cab and splicing another frame. Has anyone grafted another vehicle frame to the rear...
Well this just happened. I purchased the Slee LCAs sometime last August and just a few weeks ago i noticed a clunk underneath my feet. After further inspection I found out that the rubber part of the bushing had broken loose from the metal and the control arm is just sliding back and forth...
So I did all the work needed. See previous post 'this is what p0401 code looks like'.
Idle now struggling and not smooth as before. Truck readjusting to more airflow? Should I disconnect computer and rehook up?
Amy other ideas?
I recently had my steering rack and CV Boots replaced. The other day I was in Drive, foot on the brake and this loud knocking started happening. Sound was coming from engine bay or under it. Does not continue to knock if in park or neutral.
Harbor Freight has a sale going and the Bad Land winch is one of the items. I'm interested in hearing from my Mud brothers concerning this winch. Pros and cons.

Well it's not much of a rebuild, but I took apart my malfuntioning I.S. and got it working. Perhaps this has been documented.
Drill out the 3 dimples holding the cover on. To remove the cover I clamped one of the mounting ears in a vise. I then used channel lock waterpump pliers to wiggle...
