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?

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

Be careful, one day you will nod off and not wake up till it's too late. I used to hit the side of my head so hard it hurt trying to stay awake, one time driving back from Florida I started seeing double and I gave up, I pulled off the freeway pretty far, turned the engine off and I only remember no...

Re: My 1980 Datsun 720 diesel dually

This thing can be driven the way it is right now, but I don't trust the adapters with a lot of weight, towing with it is fine. I need to change out the power steering pump, there is something wrong with it, it drains dry if it sits, it also pukes out the top when I shut down the engine, I believe th...

Re: My 1980 Datsun 720 diesel dually

I wired the trailer plug receptacle today and then cleaned up the wires(bundled them) I have made/routed over the last few days, I zip tied them up out of the way where I could, I tested the 4 wire plug with my tow lights(4 wire) that has a trailer converter in line and they work great and so do my ...

Re: My 1980 Datsun 720 diesel dually

I am thinking I might be liking them LED taillights, the ones there were old but still worked great, and I was able to buy two more of them with the rubber mount rings at the local auto parts store, I even bought 2 pigtails for the old ones I had and they plugged right in and worked great. My tailli...

I got home late this afternoon and din't do a lot to the truck today, I mounted the trailer plug receptacle in the bumper this afternoon but that was about it. When I got home I pulled apart my air blower thinking that the flywheel came loose, but it had blown up, it appears that a couple of the nee...

Re: Escape From the Prison Planet

It can rain pretty hard over there, no small pipe is going to handle it.
I would be thinking some kind of wall diverting it to the side, or maybe a trench.

So what kind of drainage are you going to have on the back of the house?
