  3. that's a sharp looking old school rig
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. OK good to know for next time
  7. 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.

  9. yup, there was not enough clearance to get my puller on. Boxes are cheap and plentiful so it was worth it just to get the truck up and running again
  10. Got my evil on the old steering box....I forgot why I bought the pitman AND box together...pitman for the SAS, and because there was no clearance between the pitman arm and box to get a puller in. So I cut it LMAO.
  11. Coffee this week will be Thursday 7pm at the Woodside Ferry Terminal.
  12. yeah, maybe a single, but it'll have to be low or removable so I can get in the garage lol
  13. Looks great. I want a faux-roll bar for mine.
  14. When I picked up a replacement pinion yoke I also took an '81 brake booster to hopefully fix my hissing noise. New booster cleaned up and replaced,. Hissing noise gone
  15. Thankfully these old trucks are simple to work on, albeit huge and heavy, so I should have the box swapped in no time. i might even address the slop in the intermittent shaft whilst I'm at it lol. You might have a bad joint or bushing making the clunk maybe?
