Re: Escape From the Prison Planet

And I keep coming back to the same thing, it depends on how prepared you are. I consider 20mph on a freeway a hazard and they should not be there, if that is how scared they are they should not be behind the wheel, unfortunately these few people make driving dangerous for the rest of us, they cause ...

Re: My 1969 Datsun 521 kingcab diesel

Inner fender access cut-out? I thought about that, the front inside is cut up anyway making room for the 720 power steering gear, I seriously doubt if the starter will squeeze by the steering column, I will look when I get the time. It really don't fix the issue though, but if the starter was out o...

Re: My 1969 Datsun 521 kingcab diesel

I am having an issue with this truck now, the upper starter mount bolt hole is stripped, it will not even hold a bolt now, the stater makes funny noises when I start it like it is skipping teeth, unfortunately I am going to have to drop the transmission to fix it. I am not looking forward to doing t...

Re: My 1980 Datsun 720 diesel dually

A little less power off the line, but being I am turning 330 gears in the rear it has a shitload of power, what really counts is on the freeway with the trailer. Keep in mind that I put tires on it that are 3 inches shorter, it is like dropping the gearing to 350 gears, I really have not driven this...

Re: My 1980 Datsun 720 diesel dually

I did a bunch of stuff today, when I went out this morning one of the dually rear tires was flat, so I did the same thing to it that I did to the other two that would not hold air, I will see if it worked on that tire tomorrow. I also removed all 4 brackets on the leafs, I then removed the rear bump...

Re: Escape From the Prison Planet

I guess I just don't like the way other people drive in snow or just generally, to me they drive like idiots causing accidents, and I am talking about people that are to cautious, if that is how they have to drive they have no business being out there. I suppose if you do not live in the city things...

Re: My 1980 Datsun 720 diesel dually

I bought the rims and leafs off the truck, but the shackles were much longer, I have the stock shackles on this truck which leave only an inch before the bump stops hit the overload leafs, I don't want to use them tall shackles as I want to lower the truck not raise it higher. I likely didn't instal...

Re: My 1980 Datsun 720 diesel dually

OK, so I actually drove it a couple miles today to fill it up and see if there was a line at the post office machine, I am not liking the overload springs, when they hit it is like a rock, I likely have them installed wrong, they came with that bracket you can see in the photo below, they were rivet...

Re: Escape From the Prison Planet

Snow, people abandon their cars on the freeways when that stuff falls on the ground around here.
I hope you like that stuff as you likely will see it quite often over there.

Re: My 1980 Datsun 720 diesel dually

I have been using them table saws for years, I made most of my pond landscaping out of 2X4s cut to 1/8th inch thick pieces, I then cut the into 3 or 4 inch long pieces to make shingles for all the roofs, hundreds and hundreds of these little shingles put on one at a time with either screws or a smal...

Re: My 1980 Datsun 720 diesel dually

I forgot to mention that I finally got the tires to hold air, I had to go to the extreme to get good results, I cleaned the rims before installing the tires, but they seeped air out the lip half way around, and when I put the lead weight on one of them air came pouring out. The rubber on these tires...

Re: My 1980 Datsun 720 diesel dually

I could not find the stake metal so I had to make my own stakes out of wood, things didn't go that well, I caught my right index finger in the blade and took some of the side off(total screw up on my part), then a little while later while pushing the stake thru the blade with my left hand fingers th...

Re: Escape From the Prison Planet

I would not do good in this situation, when I build something I keep at it till it is done, not sure I would do well waiting for others I am paying to do the work, I would not understand the waiting in between spurts of work. When I put my roof on myself I worked on it every day till it was done, I ...

Re: My 1980 Datsun 720 diesel dually

The oil line for the vacuum pump came in and I installed it and have no leaks, it appears to be working but I will get a better idea once I drive it a little more, I still have to press fairly hard. I bought all the wood for the flatbed rails, I will likely make them this weekend. I am still trying ...

Re: My 1980 Datsun 720 diesel dually

I was unhappy with how high the flatbed was, so I lowered it an inch, that was fairly easy as everything was made the when I mounted the flatbed, so I just made 6 new blocks out of 2X2 metal and replaced the 2X3 blocks, the back two blocks were 2X4 so I replaced them with 2 of the 2X3 blocks I alrea...

Re: Around Waynos house

At least you're feeling better. I don't understand why still bleeds, maybe you got close to a vein or something. My uncle peeled back his fingertips one time with a car washing wand at the car wash trying to wash his hands, he was a dumbass though. I suspect that it has to do with where the holes w...

Re: My 1980 Datsun 720 diesel dually

So today I pried, well actually pushed out one of the LED red marker lights behind the Tommy Gate and hooked it up to the battery and nothing happened, I started tapping on it and it came to life and it has worked every time I tested it after that. The gasket holding the red light was really stiff, ...

Re: My 1980 Datsun 720 diesel dually

Today I changed out the power steering pump first, it appears to be better now. While doing that I noticed the zip ties that hold the intake cover on the throttle body had broken, so I made something a little better, as otherwise it will blow off under boost. https://s8.postimg.org/earkaxoyd/DSCN751...

Re: Escape From the Prison Planet

Looks like you sent the brown dog to a corner, or is that where he lives, under the stairs?
I would guess you were tired after drilling that many holes, is fresh concrete softer?
