Rear brakes were making a terrible noise on the last club run. I found the adjuster  at the bottom of the drum....somehow. Luckily I have spare shoes and adjusters 🙂

Went around the TTB brackets and every bolt had at least 1 full turn of slack 😮!! I can see now why Ford riveted the brackets on!

Tank has always a been bit wet and the sender never worked properly. The leak is worse now. Tank and sender on order.

Finally, dont those radius arms look nice under there 🙂

Gas tank came today, just in time for tomorrow's 'celebrity' run. Good job it did because the leak was becoming a trickle.

Didnt have time to paint it, so I'll fluid film it.

Had to drill out one of the strap bolts with gas dripping on me lol.

Old tank is in reasonably good shape, but PO had used duct tape as a strap insulator, and the sharp edge of the strap must have removed the galvanized coating off and caused it to rust. I didnt have an insulator so I cut some lawn edging to size as a substitute. 

Overall not a horrible job, but awkward on ur own.

Gas gauge seems to be working now too. We'll see what it reads when I cycle through a tank of gas.

What is the "celebrity" run?

Curious about this celeb run?

Nothing to tell really. We were out on the 1st half of Hard and Soft for a couple of hours whilst they filmed some light wheeling. 

The show will be on YouTube called Stuck in a Truck with Buck.

Tom and Jesse were out with them on Saturday too.
