Iím about 30 min south of Atlanta.

Messed with the truck a little more today.
Got the exhaust all bolted back up.

Fought with these fuel lines for a good minute, has anyone else had trouble with these being a pain?
Where they turn up to the push fittings they kink a little bit on the flex part







I noticed Iím missing the boot thing that goes around the steering shaft, is that super important or will it be fine without?




Took a look under the harmonic balancer, looks real dry. Not sure to do the main seal or not




Trying to knock this truck out soon so I can get this bike on the road in time for some shows this summer

Those fuel lines arent correct. There should be a little slack in them. Might not be routed by the trans completely correct.

If I hook a single battery up and just tape up the other battery leads is it okay to turn the key just to check out mileage and see if the radio is working?

Sure. In the warmer states many people run with just one battery. You only really need the two when it is cold and the glow plugs come on for ages and it is hard to crank.

Water pump is off,



New one should be in the mail tomorrow.


Hooked a battery charger up to see what would happen, donít think it had enough steady amps to power the truck because it was making a weird ass pulsating noise.
Guess I got my mileage mixed up, the lbz must of been the motor with the 220xxx miles on it.




Had some new transmission cooler lines show up in the mail. One of them will work but I need to figure out which part number this one is, the one that has the longer bend in the front

Just kidding, might not be right. Changed the fuel filter and found this on it




Put one of these cat filter deals on it
