Re: What in Tarnation?

Very, very cool! Remarkably like my own. That's a 2 door or perhaps a 3 door, but so much is similar! I wonder about it's history.

Thanks for the vote of confidence! My '92 is the backbone of all my hauling duties. Some of you have visited (all are invited). 1/2 mile of very steep switchback gravel road. Climbs about 600' in...

Smile Re: What in Tarnation?

Re: Shopping for a Trailer

Re: What in Tarnation?

Thanks Skip! I know that feeling.... 'Hmmm, I'll just shave a little off the side of this pulley on the lathe. More clearance is always good." Good thing I don't have a lathe. Anyone else want to...

Re: Shopping for a Trailer

C'mon Revenski... If you can't get pictures of that gorgeous tonner up, then there must be a 15 year old kid in the neighborhood that can help you post them. He might not understand multi-piece...

Re: Reusing head bolts.

I have a copy of Ford Motor Company's overhaul/repair manual for their V8 engine. They give tolerances and wear limits and all that stuff, but never a mention that one might need to purchase new head...

Re: What in Tarnation?

I'll be on the 7:am ferry to pick up the flatbed and all my lumber. This should give me most of the weekend to work on my conversion kit. By the way diesel engine kits for the old ford big trucks...
