I picked up a new 3rd member for my 9" a few weeks ago and had some time.......so my plan was to swap it out. Couple uncooperative wheel studs, 2 trips to the part store for ujoints--different yoke on the new 3rd, needed to swap out the one on the driveshaft. Couple searches on this forum for driveshaft slip yoke engagement questions.....everything is at least torn apart now--hope to get it all back together tomorrow.
All put back together.....big difference going from a 2.75 to 4.11 rear end.
Yesterday 11:34 PM
Project89 turns out the smoke was form 4 85# injectors hanging wide open flooding the engine and hot headers with fuel , that could have been real bad

But it's done, WHOOO HOOOO!

Once you get done working on the trailer, you should have enough experience and a skill level to work on a truck project.

MARTINSR I am BEAT and wasn't going to do anything today.....but you know how that is. I started cleaning up the garage of all the stuff from the dining room/bedroom conversion. I kept going out and setting stuff on the floor during that project so the garage was all but useless. I got a lot done, but still a way to go.

One of my New Years resolutions is to thin this place out. My wife and I have way too much stuff, stuff we don't touch, stuff we plan on doing something with, stuff, stuff, stuff. So I am tossing stuff out as I come across it and it is getting easier and easier.

In 1985 I restored a rust pile of a 1952 Mercedes for a Dr. I spent 6 hrs one day making and welding in parts for a rear door striker area. Never got out of a 6 " square area. I thought I was going to lose my mind.

mud.man.rj A wife as a belly dancer...lucky guy. Mine just cooks a lot of really great stuff all the time, oh ya, I'm lucky too.

tech69 I squeezed in a little time on the bike yesterday and got the rear fender brackets in there. Lot of work and I decided on welding a bolt to the inside of the frame so the fender can be nice an snug. This will the be the last mock up pic before paint.



It looks 10x better without the old fender bracket
