Well, the F150 that got new plugs and had the O2 sensor plugged back in ( went back to muffler shop where they oops’ed, but was all cool) got a true test drive. And the rear brake seized. Won’t know until I pull it apart to see if it was the e-brake ( possibly fixed at a garage) or the caliper seized.
Smoked it pretty good though! The blue oval and age strikes again. Have to admit the motor ran pretty good 🤣

Ok another truck update. The bottom of the cab got rust inhibitor and black paint. Not my usual paint work I used a roller and a brush.

The Machinist finished my heads tonight so tomorrow starts assembly and when I got home there was a package from ZZ diesel waiting for me so my pump is here and my power steering line came yesterday. It's going to be a busy weekend.

Looking pretty snazzy! Should keep it protected and on the road for a while for you. A lot of hard work but should pay off it the end.

Replaced 2 tires on the daily van, rotated the other 2 to the back. Man this thing eats tires, gonna see if an alignment helps but from what I have seen may just be the way it is

Tried to measure for countershaft extension endplay and got anywhere from .045-060".

I think I'll try jam nutting a washer onto the shaft to pry off of with a prybar and hope for more consistent results. I'm also open to ideas.
