Dman, I'd guess worn bushings and/or springs causing excessive inner wear. You need remote control air shocks to compensate on the fly for whatevers goin on back there. :lol: On another note, my alternator is randomly giving me issues. Couple days ago I fired i up it wasn't charging, so I shut it off, disconnected and reconnected the battery, and it started working again. Not sure whats up with that. Also pulled my dads 81 yamaha 250 exciter (if you call 20 hp exciting) out of storage after 12-13 years, it only has 12000 kms on it, and he was planning on giving it to a neighbour for 200$. Well, thats not happening now lol. After a thorough wash and degreasing the back wheel of chain lube, it looks almost like a new bike. An oil change, some pre-lubing, and a shot of ether, it fired right up and runs the same as it did the last time I heard it run. I'm assuming it had fuel stabilizer put in it to run that good on old gas. All I need now is a battery, which I'm hopefully getting tmo. I'm going to buy it (for somewhat more than $200) as I need extra wheels anyway. 70 mpg is what it's rated at, if I can get anywhere close to that I'll be happy. It will do 125-130 kph flat out, but pretty underpowered for the highway. Good little around town/backroad bike though. Looking forward to putting around on it, but it'll sure seem slow compared to a 110 hp cbr600.

I've been thinking a lot lately about insurance and these trucks in the event of an accident. The jaw dropping prices these trucks are to be had for are far from being reflected in the eyes of insurance companies.

If something were to happen to my truck, number 1 I'd take a minute to puke, number 2 I know these trucks are blue booked for what, maybe $4-$7k depending?

Is antique insurance the only way to potentially get close to what your truck is worth should something happen?

Yeah, I can see the bushings aren’t in great shape, and the springs mightn’t be in the best condition. The “plan” at this point is poly bushings, and coilovers. Ultimately I want to be able to confidently track this car.

Got the new battery for the bike filled and charged last night. It's a little bigger than the stock battery, took me 10 mins to get it back out of the bike after cramming it into the battery box. I think the main jet is a bit plugged as I gotta run with the choke open a little to get decent acceleration out of it.
Found a couple iffy grounds on the truck, which got the alternator working again.

fixing to order last 2 things for rewire of my 93, cable and cable lugs. What gauge would be recommended for alternator to mega fuse holder, #8, #6, #4 gauge? Will be going back to the old style chryco separate voltage regulator, thinking about floor dimmer switch for grid heaters. 40 or 60 amp relay for headlights? Got to inventorying my oliver cummins conversion parts, have lost track of the fuel tank, crap! Anyone got a 4 number series oliver tank laying around?

Ok, I'm pissed! I went to pull the truck out today and put the battery charger on it as a precaution, went to start it about a half hour later and it barely turned over. So I left it for a few hours and still wasn't happy enough to start. Looks like it's time to spend $ on a new battery! :x

So I suspect the pump in my car has given up on me. It was running fine, then just quit, and won’t restart. It is throwing a code for the shutoff solenoid. Gutted that, and it still won’t start, and it’s not putting much fuel out. I’m going to pick up an 11mm pump on Friday, and hopefully that fixes it.

So I put air helper bags in an 18 f350 dually yesterday. It turns out even with that aluminum body the damn things weigh over 8900 pounds. Just freaking ridiculous I tell you. They did fix the heavy low speed steering thing the 17’s has though, and there’s like actual lifting points on the rear half for those of us with two post lifts.

The density of 6061 aluminum is similar to granite. While it’s lighter than steel per cubic foot.. steel requires less material to achieve the same tensile and shear strength. 7075 T6 is different animal all together. Does anyone know what they use on the frames of these Fords?

I don’t know what steel, but they went to a fully boxed frame that’s at least 3/16” wall. It’s definitely a step up from their old flexy junk.

Hey all,

Just reading some threads on the board to get a feel for who’s who and where all the active threads are. Looks like this thread might be “meeting central”.

I just acquired a 1990 D250 that’s in running condition but will need some TLC to make it a reliable daily driver. First thing on the list is the KDP fix. This truck has a bunch of miles on it and the motor has never been opened up. After learning about the KDP, now I’m kind of scared to start it to even move it around until I get that done.

At any rate, it also came with this...

Image

If anyone needs any info out of it, it includes all kinds of rebuild info on everything EXCEPT the G360. I guess back in 1991, they didn’t sell any service parts for them.

...and I see the image didn’t show up. Linked images not allowed for new members?

It’s a 1991 Dodge truck factory service manual.

Images need to be posted on a hosting site like Imgur. Everybody used to use Photobucket, but they got greedy and most of us here bailed.

On a 1st gen the timing case bolts are more likely to loosen than the KDP to come out, but it does happen. Loctite the case bolts and tab the KDP both while you are in there.
