lol, that's actually exactly how I fix my radio when one of the four speakers (and it's always a different one) decides to call it quits on me - a nice fist smack under the radio or a light kick on the panel to the right of it (above the tach) seems to bring sound right back. Having a girl to kick it is obviously the better option

Re: ***More Junk to add to my collection!!!***

Well Ive got some good news and some bad news... The good news is that the fuel tank valve and switch work to switch over to the driver side tank... also the sending unit that was reading waay past full decided to free itself up and start working... the bad thing is that the tank leaks about a gallon an hour... so.. im gonna have to change both tanks so I might as well changed the sending units as well as all of the fuel lines and the switching valve while im in there... Im thinking that itll be easier to take the bed off to change both tanks and lines versus dropping the tanks and stuff from under the truck... itll also give me a chance to clean up the frame, replace shocks, and install the trailer hitch.... anybody got any input on this,?
where have you all bought tanks etc? Id imagine that the only place to buy a switching valve is the dealer?

thanks for any and all help doods...


take em easy

Yeah the dealer should have the switching valve. Not sure about where to get the tanks other than a junkyard. JC Whitney sells new ones, they even have polyurethane ones now but I'd stick with steel tanks.

Back from the Dead...

After 10 years of owning this thing, changing Jobs, moving twice and having two kids its finally looking like I'll be getting this thing back home so that I can work on it. It's currently sitting at a buds farm about 4 hours away and hopefully will be making its way here the week between Christmas and New years.

Just so I am clear.... you rescued the truck from sitting in a barn for years only to leave it sit in another barn for years. Now you are going to rescue it again. Sound about right?

Moving along at the speed of smell here, due to my extensive work travel schedule things are just now lining up to get this thing back home... Bud of mine pulled it out of the weeds this morning and is working to get it over here this week.
