150# of steel bought for $150 to add to tail.

Makes the lead route look not as bad if it could be found but I was seeing people asking $1/lb and up. This I just get to weld on. See what difference it makes...

Thanks.. It could use a little less gear. probably address that over the winter they make a 3.23 gear set now for the old banjo rear axle which should get me to 65 ish MPH which should be plenty.

I've got over 700 miles on it since August when I brought it home.

major service on this unit tonight!


the grinding dragging sound i was expecting to find as rear brakes exploded was found to be a drive shaft carrier bearing.  pulled to measure since zone listed 4 differed ID sizes and found one instock at penfield out by Matts new house.  quick visit and pickup, back in and all good.

also got an oil and filter change, chassis fuel filter change

power steering res fix #4.

popped a rear brake line pulling into the shop this after noon, also replaced that.    jug of coolant will be added to  a fushed radiator after this weekend.

If you want to learn how my injectors work, watch this starting at about 5:10. A single valve controls both metering and start of the injection event off a fixed cam profile with a fixed 150psi fuel supply. 

That design just has to be German at its roots. Wow.

Know what’s really hot? A wire that’s melted it’s insulation due to overload/undersize. Maybe don’t unplug by grabbing with bare fingers while under load.

Fucking dumbass.

that looks like a fun ride


I dig it.

The old truck I picked up sits pretty low as well, and I haven't had any issues so far with it.. (other than the wife hitting her door on the curb......twice.......)

v belts and low riders really dont tickle me.  i like a good farm truck stance ready for work.  nice looking shell.  crocked wipers would drive me nuts.

im on the other end of the spectrum.  I like the hammered stance.       I dont care for the flat bed look.

to each his own.

If it is diesel, I'll wager that it is a 6.5 Detroit. I don't think the Dmax was available in MDTs until 2001.

EDIT: as late as 2003?
