    Hey @Denwoods - what sort of work are you looking for?

  8. that's a sharp looking old school rig
  9. Nice, in a rough sort of way. ‘67 Chev, 327 V8, manual tranny with floor shifter, GM 14 Bolt rear, 8 lug front. Big Edelbrock carb, 16” rims

    hey peeps looking for a good shop in the area
  11. Doubt it's the frame as it's braced at the front with the winch tray, and these have a big engine crossmember near the coil towers. My gut feeling is these coils.
  12. That is quite a lean! Hopefully it's something simple like the springs and not anything else. Are the frame rails leaning the same?
  13. I noticed the truck was sat crooked parked on the level. Seems the drivers side is lower and I can't see any breakages, and the mounts/body bushings are not bent or corroded. Weird. IDK if it happened before or after Drill Road. So I'll pull out both coils to see what they look like, maybe swap them to see if the lean moves. I also cleaned up the yellow HD coils just in case I need to swap them out.
  14. Earlier
  15. Alright, pre mvi done, have a list, can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Few more repairs needed and she will be legal, on a side note, coming home from pre mvi, lost power, and the truck was dieing, left me stranded on the road. Engine not picking up fuel, just changed the fuel filter a week ago with a genuine cat filter. Did a couple of roadside checks, blockage all led to the filter, even siphoned fuel up through the feed line and blew back through into the tank, lines were clear. The filter I had removed prior to the cat replacement,was a carquest fuel filter that was on the truck since before I bought it, and made the trip home from Ontario, and some running while here, amazing the filtration difference in filters for the same position. The cat filter might just be too effective in filtering fuel, lucky I wasn't alone and had help from Tom and Tab, new carquest filter, bled out the injection lines and away she went. Made the rest of the journey with no issues. Also a note on the cat filters, the oil in this big ol' diesel was black as tar when I changed it, fresh oil and a pair of cat filters, the oil looks as if the truck has never been ran since the oil was dumped in. It has had several starts and a few hrs of running time and a trip to and from the shop since the oil change and it's still clear.
  16. The black one, F350 crew cab Long box, he lives in Timberlea I believe, when he isn't in Bayer's lake, he is at the timberlea Tim's, can't remember his name, western crew cab , doesn't use it in the winter, he built it ground up, has a few old fords
  17. Stock openings are wide open for rocks, branches, etc to puncture the rad. This is a metal insert which will provide some level of protection.
  18. Okay, so what does it do? Restrict air flow? Jk...
  19. Installed my father's day present - a Rugged Ridge Grille Insert. Easy install - popped the grille off - it's six push pins on the top and six spring clips across the bottom. Drilled four holes in the back and top of the grille to mount, done. There was a bit of rust on the bottom of the core support so I scuffed it and gave it a 50/50 paint job.
  20. For Jay: Several times I’ve seen a Ford F-250/F-350 Quad Cab Long Box of your rig’s generation with BIG tires and other gear, mostly at the Bayer’s Lake Timmie’s... Tires looked a bit like old skool Ground Hawgs....
  21. OK good to know for next time
  22. Looks like a good time! I'm super interested in Drill Road.
  23. At coffee last week a few of us decided to go exploring in Wittenburg on Saturday, which after a few dead ends and atv trails turned into 'meh lets just do Drill Road' LOL The old Ford was doing awesome, loving the long wheelbase on the climbs, then Dave got his right foot into the big hill after the big deep bog, and tore the spring mount perches off his axle. Zuk was still drive-able, but the pinion was pointing up. So we turned around and I followed him out whilst the others continued. By the time Dave and I got around to the end of the trail, the boys were crawling their Yota's up the last climb Other carnage....Mike caved in a front fender on a tree.
  24. Adapting an old cargo box to the Ranger atm. Going to look like an old man’s truck! Gotta live the part, lol. My Chinese-made aluminum spark plug wire separators finally made it to me yesterday. Woo Hoo! The Accel wires I put on the Scout are 8.8 mm.. Needed big holders! Back at the Scout soon. I hope! Pics when available..
