    I highly, highly doubt a previous owner replaced in the last 80k. But visual check, slap test are both always a good idea any time you've got a front wheel up.

    Worthwhile also to check everything else, sway bar bushings, lower shock bushing, etc. to confirm health. Look for rack leaks, y'know, "the usual".

    most of that is pretty old, but is going bye bye as soon as I start tearing this thing apart. All new suspension, sway bar delete, CV's (these seem to be a little short) etc. Have a slight rack leak but doesn't look too bad. Will rebuild or replace too at that time.
    Haven't been driving it much but it's my best option for this trip

    I did not. Do you think they’ll snap? They were new 10 years ago.

    Yoinking this over to general to get it out of the 'what'd you do today' thread.

    I'm more worried sometimes when it comes to the larger caps you find in old receivers than I am tubes :rofl:

    And yeah, for the two LPs I picked up this year, the left Encore one ... not so much, the headstock looks cheap to me but it was an inexpensive score, and it plays nice but needs a new nut. The Hondos were a little more blatant in the early 70s with the open-book headstock and split-diamond inlay. This one is late 70s/early 80s, almost certain it's an H-740 but I'm no Samick expert.

    Yeah, they'll most likely snap. The bed bolts in both of my trucks were rusted the hell out. I've posted up pics of em a lot.

    Looks like yours came out in one piece. Maybe I’ll soak them by letting them sit in an 8 oz clear bottle of muriatic acid resting on an inverted 5 gallon bucket from underneath the truck.

    Naval jelly is probably safer, no?

    Brush on, then wrap in cling wrap so the gel doesn't dry up.

    Yeah, I went to take a look. They’re under the frame rails and not the crossmember as I originally thought. The two near the tailgate are already loose. The two mid-section might come off with the impact. The two nearest the cab are the worst with one adjacent to the fuel tank and hard to get at.

    I don’t think Jason had any trouble with mine. Other than having to remove the line-x. And I think he slapped on D rings for me before reinstalling the new ones. I could send my used set to someone in need of one or two if they are lying around still when I retrieve it.

    Good luck. Here's what my bolts looked like on the V6. Had to get creative to remount the bed... I wish I knew to take shots horizontally way back when I did this...

    I ended up having to cut those "brackets" off the frame where the welded nuts were.

    All 6 of mine were stuck pretty good...

    @Tundra2 What did you do to re-secure the bed to the frame when you cut off the brackets? Drill new holes and use a nut?

    I used heavy duty washers that I made, and then a nylock nut. I think it was m12 x 1.5 thread??? Let me check my build thread. I'll post a link in a second...

    I can say I've legitimately never seen one of these in my life and I'm trying to figure out when you'd want to use one.

    What purpose did it serve other than spacing? Could it hold the nut in place (magnetic and all) while you spun the bolt down through it?

    We use those all the time. I've never seen the magnetic ones either.

    So basically, strut has a rolled lip on the front. If what your mounting to the strut has divits on the mounting holes to keep it off the wall, you need to use square washers so it doesn't sink into the strut. I'll see if I can find something at work tomorrow.

    Well, after hibernating during that hellish 2 week heat wave we had, 105+° in my valley, the last 2 weeks are terrific, so new project time. Adding a VFD system to my mill. Ran new power, added a disconnect, a custom mount for the VFD to set it hanging off the right side of the head. Emergency Stop system!
    Pics & write up to come....
    Also buttoned up the latest build of the truck, new lights, grill, 20 hrs of detailing the paint, topping it off with a car cover, also did a little spray in the inner metalwork behind the grill.
    Pics & write up to come!!

    So yeah, a little time to lurk, but being retired is being busy, when it's not too damn hot!!!

    Sorry. Variable Frequency Drive. For starters, it takes in 240 vac single phase power, and converts it to 220 3 phase power. That is what powers the mill 1 hp motor. It will also provide electronic speed control. mid to high speed, cutting metal. Low, and very low speed for running taps in and outta holes, sawing a nice ability to have!!
