    That was my thought, now does it actually work or make things worse. I'll never know lol.

    In my life, they never really want it. They just put up with it. lol. Oh the truck. yeah I'll blast the plugs with some PB blaster and let them sit for a while. Then go back at it. Can't drive anyways since I need to fix the brakes again. They are stuck engaged. Feels like the master cylinder isn't releasing. It's nice having both. I love the creature comforts of my 16 Nissan Murano, but I love the simplicity of my Dime and Truck.

    No, just one fuel pump. The setup is from a twin turbo 300zx. It had the fuel pump and a level sending unit that had a hose running to the fuel pump. Not exactly sure what it was doing, but it was on the other side of the hump in the gas tank from the fuel pump. So I figured it couldn't hurt to have it, though maybe it was working as sort of a secondary pickup, but could be totally wrong. And figured if I was already cutting one hole in the top of my tank, it can't hurt to cut two and put them both in my stock tank. I'm hoping the coating is good, seems like I shouldn't have any more leaking problems. but car is just a KA powered dime. See answer above lol.

    Washington, only have to worry about it being over 25 years old, or 2009+ with CA emissions. If it fits in one of those two categories, don't have to worry about smog checks or anything like that. Sorry, it was just the plug wire that wasn't fully seated on the plug, not the plug that was loose. Hell, I tried undoing two plugs and they were on pretty really good. I'm hoping I can remove them with out breaking them.

    Quick adjustment on drums and now doesn't violently pull to the left when braking. And on a V8 aren't all 8 spark plugs supposed to be plugged in? Two came right off in my hand without a fight. Still needs a good tune.

    Eh they have their place. Had a 2013 Nissan Frontier and loved it. Didn't have to work on it, it just worked. Come over and check it out and bring those 510 rear a-arms with you :-) Don't know, filled out the online stuff and talked to my insurance agent and got setup. Didn't physically talk to anybody at hagerty.

    We saw some flatbed trucks, but with wanting to be able to carry dirt or mulch, we wanted a full bed. What do you mean? yeah I didn't want a too large of truck. Honestly would have preferred a frontier or tacoma for their smaller size. But I'm not complaining with what we ended up with.

    Exactly. I respect the work, but we got this truck to be used as a truck. Can't do that when a rear crossmember is sticking through the bed floor. First thing is fixing the brakes. Pulls hard to the left, lots of pedal movement, but they work. So going to adjust and bleed the brakes.

    I'm not against putting the CV front subframe under the truck for better/modern brakes and a nicer, but no body swap. Bed needs to stay flat and useful. If it can't haul loads it isn't useful to the wife.

    Made a post, was originally a 352, previous owner took it out and put in a 302. http://community.ratsun.net/topic/73816-new-toy-66-ford/

    Picked up a 1966 Ford F100 long bed. Previous owner had it for 30+ years. Took pretty good care of it, took out the 352 and put in a 302 and C6. No huge plans for now, we needed an around the house truck for home depot and dump runs. Wanted something older so we could put it on our hagerty insurance and not our everyday insurance that is expensive because of the teenage driver. So for now, just driver her and keep her running.
