#1566097 What did you do to your dime today?

Interesting, I've never looked that closely at at the Z tank. I guess if one pickup is good, 2 is better. :)

 

That was my thought, now does it actually work or make things worse. I'll never know lol.

No plans for a cvpi body swap, lolz? It’s nice to see an old f100 that isn’t going that route.

 

I'm not against putting the CV front subframe under the truck for better/modern brakes and a nicer, but no body swap. Bed needs to stay flat and useful. If it can't haul loads it isn't useful to the wife.

Picked up a 1966 Ford F100 long bed.  Previous owner had it for 30+ years. Took pretty good care of it, took out the 352 and put in a 302 and C6. No huge plans for now, we needed an around the house truck for home depot and dump runs.  Wanted something older so we could put it on our hagerty insurance and not our everyday insurance  that is expensive because of the teenage driver. So for now, just driver her and keep her running.

   From what I’ve seen, they’ve has serious issues with “bolt in” parts not being bolt in. I was glad to see they had no issues with the t3 parts.

 

Oh yeah, I think we have all been there, that a bolt in part needs a little help.  It was just funny to see their reaction.

I think the funniestt part was the surprised that it all bolted in.  No bolt in part ever bolts right in, OMG it actually bolted right in!!!!!

Haven't really done much in the shop since this picture. Moved some drawers to make a work bench, made a movable table for my radial arm saw and table saw.  Made some more ceiling storage, moved the lumber rack, ran network from the house to the shop, added a tv, ran some air lines with a couple outlets (one on the ceiling for a pull down air line, one outside the shop between the garage doors, and one on the work bench), and acquired a roommate for the Datsun.

Fuck you too buddy, see you at the burger meet!

 

I'm not your buddy, guy.

 

Talk to the kid and see if he wants to come out, but unless I can get a fuel pump before then, we will be rolling in his frontier.

Installed some door panels and speakers.  Yup, I'm an idiot and cut holes into T3 panels to install speakers, shoot me.  Didn't use their self taping screws to mount them.  Bought some new hardware and drill and tapped the holes.  Just need new door handles and window cranks now.

#1498818 How-To: New fuel filler mod for a 510

Posted by freekwonder on 23 June 2017 - 02:33 PM

Yup, haven't had an issues myself either since I've done this.  Nice not having fuel on the side of the my.

 

My only problem  isn't related to the filler neck.  Can't fill my tank up too much or fuel seeps out of the welds where the fuel pump was welded in at.   Need to take it out and reseal the tank.
