    Volvo is probably a decent truck for that application. Pre 08, I think, is pre-emissions. Make sure it comes with the proper ppe. Shorts, flip flops and foot rest on the dash. 

    Seems like there should be some crocs.

  2. My plain jane 1970 F150 240 6 and a 3 spd got 20 mpg or better loaded or empty. No power anything. Got a 68 later with 302 and power steering was easier to get around with and faster but down around 16-18 mpg.

    It appears that he refers to anti-seize compound as never seize.


    That is what I call it as that is what it used to say on the can way back whenever.

  4. Not thick enough to take any off and can mess up geometry of clutch release apparatus. I did a Wrangler clutch for a family member a few years ago. The machine shop resurfaced on rotary broach and we shimmed back to original position. Still working good but a replacement stock grade wheel might have been less $$$ or not much more.  They can also be done on brake lathes but I'm not sure I'm brave enough for that as I don't know about accuracy. If you are talking aftermarket hi po parts then this advice may not apply.

    Not all accidents involve hitting another vehicle. Crumple zones protect the occupants of the vehicle from the sudden change in speed a vehicle experiences in a crash.

    I agree on a front crumple zone but I have seen numerous accidents where a car ran into the rear of a 3/4 or 1 ton truck. The car was demolished and the truck and occupant(s) drove away. With belts in use of course.  

  6. I have used a on/off electric water heater for s sink for many years. I'm currently on my third one. The rise/gallons thing is anb issue that I work around with a ball valve to adjust the output flow. Full on in the warm weather reduce flow to maintain temp when cold. You may find a gas or fuel oil better suits your needs.

    If it ain't broke, beat the living shiit out of it until it is.

    Two wrongs don't make a right, but two rights make a u-turn.

    Actions speak louder than words,  especially in a library.


    If it ain't broke don't fix it. maybe two rights and a left for a u turn.

  8. The John Deere had a diverter valve which transferred hyd pressure from the rockshaft to the hyd cylinder hooked to the upper arm linkage on the hitch mimicking a 3 pt and rotating the implement and maintaining constant draft and traction according to their advertising. A 3 pt with draft control seems simpler. Draft control on my 504 works.
