:shock: That's actually kinda cool!


Because it's not in my truck, then it would suck. ;)

Just enough power to break everything behind the crankshaft.

New diff cover that won't rust out and cost me another grand.

First test run/break in run done. Nothing out of the ordinary to report.



Unrelated note, I made a scrap run this morning (used the work truck, no towing yet with the Ex) and someone had scrapped an 80's dodge crew cab :(

Bought a THD fuel pin back in May and finally got around to installing it.

Went to swap over the diaphragm bits and well fawk me. Seriously? This was with a 1/4" ratchet and happened just snugging the nut up. I sent THD an email and am waiting a reply. I'm sure they will make it right though, just a little frustrating. *edit* They replied to my email (on a saturday evening) and will be sending me a new one. Very happy with that and I expected nothing less from such a great company.

In other news, I found out how low I can run the fuel tank before it starts sucking air with the draw straw which is a little less than 1/8 tank remaining (about 4 gallons). I ran that tank for 720 miles and it was 40 gallons to refill = 18 mpg

Small check-in, everything is running great except a power steering leak and a pulley just started squeaking.


I drug this home yesterday from PA. Cruised nicely at 65-70. It actually cruises really nice at 75 because of the gearing/tire size (3.73's with 295/70-18s). I think 3.93 would be perfect, but they don't make that ratio for the sterling rear end :?

I hope to have mine finished in the next few months. It's been sitting for months without me touching it.
1983 Dodge D150 that has been repowered with a 93 Cummins/518 running gear AKA The Ugly Duck! I would much rather build them then buy them.[

Truck is still plugging along. I only seem to drive it every other weekend though since I'm commuting for work again. She burns some oil and these cheap injectors are hazy. Been kind of thinking about finding a p-pump for it, but then I see what people want for the damn things :shock:

I have a power steering leak I need to fix. It is coming from the pump, so I either need to replace or reseal it.


This winter it was being bitchy about starting. The single battery was getting old and was undersized compared to the stock sized dodge battery. I picked up a pair of the oem Ford sized batteries and made a new battery tray (the air filter now sits where the passenger battery would be from the factory)

That looks nice, But I think it would start better if the 2nd battery was hooked up. ;)
