Not really a build, more of a resurrection/survival thread....I will add some pics soon, most are on phone or camera...
I got it from a guy in Austin about 7 years ago.
I found a notice inside that the apartment managers had posted on the truck that it was "unacceptable" I think it was, to grace their complex, and needed to go.
It was a nice place, but really?
1973 regular cab, regular bed.
Recently rebuilt the L16 and ready to re-install, but I want some sage advice as I go back together, so thanks, fellas.
Most urgent now is, I got an OEM release brg shipped from Houston in 3 days for a couple bucks more than Autozone wanted for Chicom crap..
it feels smooth, but should I pack some more grease into the bearing itself since its been sitting, or just inside the collar?
Also, the 4 speed's input shaft wiggles a little...is this normal?
Found a 2013 pic on my comp...moving my Pop's pit after he passed...solid cast iron, around 300lbs. I think.
It looks a little rougher now, dude had done a rattlecan resto.
