    Smoke From Steering Column

    At start up today a plume of white smoke came out where the signal arm is. Figured I fried a switch. Although nothing was on. It was right at start up. Started back up and everything still worked. All lights, etc...No more smoke. Went where I was going no problems. Can’t pull the steering wheel...

    Lost my rear drive shaft

    Hell of a time trying to get that broken bolt out so ended up just taking to shop. $160 later everything taken care of and back on the road.

    Lost my rear drive shaft

    Yeah, straps and bolts are a given. I will be replacing the yoke but for the moment I just need it back on the road ASAP so new U joints, throw shaft back on and get it balanced. Upgrade later

    Lost my rear drive shaft

    I’m back. Time to address the issue. Didn’t realize what a simple process it really is. I guess the only real bitch is going to be getting the broken bolt out. But hopefully not. Now, about the lift they put on. Here’s what’s under there. Looks stock to me. I’m lucky if I ever get to hit 50 mph...

    Lost my rear drive shaft

    Thank you for the advice. I found out my daughters boyfriend can balance it at his fathers truck repair shop. So that’s good. I’m leaning toward getting a u bolt yoke conversion. The strap bolt is broke off too far down to get a hold of it and I don’t trust my drilling. Not much room for error...

    Lost my rear drive shaft

    I’m on u tube as we speak. The balancing I’m not getting... yet. And basically just advice. Uncharted territory for me.

    Lost my rear drive shaft

    As mentioned earlier in another thread I dropped my rear drive shaft in the middle of the road today. So a lot of reading later, I have to ask, what am I getting into? I see that one of the u joint straps broke and caused the failure. Couldn’t get a pic because it’s pouring and too dark. Can...

    PCV Set up

    Me too. I didn’t see the fluid but I’m sure it’s there. Took a left into busy traffic and pop, there she went. I was able to coast across the street halfway into a parking lot. I’m just glad I didn’t get clipped by on coming traffic

    PCV Set up

    Looks like that’s the least of my problems at the moment. Rear shaft just dropped out... in traffic

    PCV Set up

    It’s been awhile. Decided the easiest way to deal with my broken heater was to vacation the last 3 months of winter away. Time to address some issues now. I smelled oil cooking and discovered my PCV filter was popped out of the valve cover because of a rotted grommet. And wasn’t even...

    Cracked shackle bracket

    Finally got it taken care of and passed inspection. The rest of the frame was fine. Now on to the next problem(s)

    Heater Control Connections Questions

    I’m at a loss. I haven’t had a chance to address it yet. I didn’t realize that next day was Christmas Eve plus it’s been really cold here. Up to 27 tomorrow so I may take a shot at it. I do remember 3 other connections hooked to it. 3 in a line. Somewhere on the left side. Maybe behind where the...

    Heater Control Connections Questions

    It’s a mess in there with the wiring. Not just this. Weather permitting I’m going to try to get the radio out of the equation and get the heater back the way it should be. Or at least as close as I can with what they left behind. So many things cut, taped, tied up, hanging....I guess they had it...

    Heater Control Connections Questions

    It actually was working... I think. Only used it once. Was throwing heat (if that’s what you can call it) and no, the large plug wasn’t attached. The black wire from the blower I assume attaches to the micro switch? I’m ‘89.
