Tried to pull a stud from the booster Andy gave me and sheered it right off.

Did some internet digging and found you have to separate the booster to get to the studs. Beyond my paygrade.

Did some more digging and found the 2wd pre-Taco trucks have a dual diaphragm, large diameter booster with long studs which can be used with my factory spacer mentioned above.

For now, to keep moving forward I reinstalled the original booster along with an 80 series master.
Cleand and antiseazed all the hard brake lines and reinstalled them too.

Is that the inside of your new garage already?
Sheesh, maybe, what's it to ya?

Sux actually! The first oil change I did in there, I used a drain pan I had not used before and that happened.

I'll hit it with some Simple Green and scrub it up if it helps you and @fireball feel better :flipoff2:

It had to happen sooner or later, might as well just get it over with!

It's got hydrolics! Brakes are plumbed and I bled the system solo.
I noticed there is no bleeder on the LSPValve on this old truck. No problem, good solid pedal!
New clutch master and slave are plumbed and working, I also bled this solo :flipoff2:

Nice bumper!
Did you make it?
Or was it a kit?


Don't worry I can't think any less of you if it was a kit. ;)

It's going to fit the exposition look perfectly!

Trail Gear $500 shipped, hard to pass up.
Also considering a more stock look.

I like B as well, but you need something up there.

The stinger is a bit overkill
