Re: Escape From the Prison Planet

I guess it depends on where you live, in Vancouver WA having any water management occur less than 10 feet away from the foundation on new construction is not code, all water from the roof has to be disposed of on property and at least 10 feet away from the foundation and a chain hanging from a down ...

Re: Waynos work truck.

That drive line can only go in 4 different ways, if vibration bothers me I can try a different position, I suppose I should have marked the other original drive line before I took it apart so I could put it back the same way, but that one can only go in 4 different ways of which one of them ways was...

Re: Waynos work truck.

I had a squeak after the fix that went away for the most part, I suspect it is the other u-joint, when I greased it only 2 of the joints had grease coming out of them, I expect I will have to do that u-joint within the year, but I already changed the u-joint in the drive line I removed, so I will ju...

Re: Waynos work truck.

I have had a vibration lately when I start out that goes away when I get going, it only happened when I just let out the clutch, but another vibration started while at higher rpms, so today I lifted the bed and front of the truck and inspected the driveline, the front U-joint of the rear drive line ...

Re: Waynos work truck.

I now know what this truck weighs, it is 3940lbs put away wet, that is around 500lbs more than it weighed before the chassis change, but it has a dump bed now and instead of using wood for the flatbed I used steel, don't know which weighs more on that front, it's likely a wash, but the hydraulic ass...

It's not full of alternators, there are a bunch of starters in the same container. :lol:

Re: Around Waynos house

I made myself an alternator tester today, I used an old Magna band saw base without removing the bandsaw. I made the main positive and negative wires then I used a "T" plug to supply 12V power to the top connection, and I used a light going to the lower connection using the same 12V I used...

Re: Waynos work truck.

It works fine, it's kinda weird but something behind the dash clicks before the dash lights come on, sometimes it tales a while. They are not as bright as when I had them wired for 12 volts, but I can see everything just fine, and they dim to basically off by turning the knob. I did notice bleeding ...

Re: Waynos work truck.

I installed the dash light harness I made today, am waiting till dark to see how bright the dash lights are and how well the dimmer switch/knob works. I also looked at the wires I have for the brights indicator light, I tried the only R/G and R/B wires there are in that dash harness, so I have no id...

Re: Really Ratty Rusty Ruby 510/miata

There is an impressive amount of thinking going on here, and a lot more ahead, it would give me a headache as I like quick results. I myself think the wheels are an issue, what is exactly hitting that you need the spacers? Charlie used drop spindles on his 520 project, rather than using 15 inch whee...

Re: The "Retired" 510

It's a seam sealer to keep it from leaking and rusting, paint will not do that job, there is seam sealer all over that vehicle, it's everywhere.

Re: Waynos work truck.

I have been trying to figure out how I was going to have dash lights that were adjustable, I have been unable to find any 2 wire plastic bulb holders that are the proper size, well I think I figured it out, what I did was rip the positive side connection out of the stock bulb holder, then I drilled ...

Re: Waynos work truck.

So I believe I have figured out why I could not get the brights indicator light to work, there are 2 red/green wires in the 720 dash harness, I believe I grabbed the wrong red/green wire, I am not sure if I am going to fix it or not as I made my own wires for that light. If I go in to change the das...

Re: Waynos work truck.

I tried to fill it up today to see what the fuel gauge showed when full but it took all the money I gave the gal($40.00), but when I turned the key on it went almost to completely full, so it appears to be working properly now with this wiring harness. Again I will say the brakes work better than th...

Re: Waynos work truck.

Well I got it figured out, I should have known when the turn signals didn't work properly and I had to fix the combination switch, then when the lights didn't work right either that it had to be the combination switch also. I tore it all down and installed the square headlights, it didn't work prope...

Re: Really Ratty Rusty Ruby 510/miata

There is more going on here, Bob3 put a 411 on a Miata and his wheels didn't stick out this far and this cab has been widened and the 411 was not widened. The wheels likely play a role in this, or maybe it is the year of the Miata, or maybe Bob narrowed the Miata Pan, I know Bob did change the front...

Re: Waynos work truck.

I spent an hour trying to figure out why the brights are always on when the headlights are on without results, but I just now realized that when testing the relay circuit something is happening that I don't think is supposed to be happening. It has 5 spades on the relay, the 2 top center ones say NO...

Re: The "Retired" 510

I hope you had that stitched up or at the very least you at least completely closed it with a butterfly bandages as if it stays open for any amount of time it will not heal properly.

Re: Escape From the Prison Planet

Wow, some people don't have any common sense, why would anyone do anything like that at a customers place, let alone a place that they were still working at, some people need to have it cost them dearly to learn anything.

Re: Waynos work truck.

I can hardly believe how bright the dash lights are(all of them), in the past it was hard to see any of them except for the charge/oil lights, now even they are brighter, that 521 wiring harness and all the modifications I made to it over the years took its toll, even the lights in the console work ...
