  1. Don't know. drove the truck around most of that day. Started it a half a dozen times, sometimes super slow to start. Sometimes just really loud. On the way home at night I realized my lights really really bright. Looked down and it was 18.3 volts. Truck started shutting off and turning on as I was pulling over and then stopped charging completely so I limped it home. New relays, new battery, everything else unhooked. Starter sounds like a ratchet. Even straight jumped.
  2. No more external voltage regulator, internally regulated alternators for the ka. It stopped charging for a few minutes and then ran 18 volts for a while and then nothing worked. Pretty sure it had been doing it throughout the day without me noticing because I did notice my starter had been making funny sounds. Starting over with all new components, bigger and better. Eliminating the electric air compressor for a belt driven.
  3. Cheaped out on an alternator and after a month it overcharged. Fried my battery, alternator, starter, a couple relays and my air compressor. Swapping in a gm 3 wire and a York ac pump for air. Should be back up by summer.
  4. Haven't really seen what she can do yet in fear of my license. at 107 it still has some walk on 185/55-14. Plenty of power. fairly smooth considering the recent damage
  5. Was riding too low, hit a steel plate in the road. Bent my front radius supports, crossmember for the control arm and the lower control arm. Still drives, just not the straight arrow it was. Going to cut the frame at the firewall narrow and make my own triangulated fronts... Bigger and better things coming. also in the long run looking to redo my back half, links are fine but I want the bags over the lower link instead of the axle
  6. Turned in the company truck, back the daily
  7. Well I just looked at a 72 and I'm going to pick it up. It's probably nicer than my blue one. Pretty sure I'm going to put it on my 90 4x4 d21. Seeing how the other cab set on before I cut it up I think it is going to get big quick
  8. I wouldn't trade my d521 for the world, in a nutshell the frames curved up and down differently for the bed and core support mounts. Core support was close enough bolted in, 3 inch body drop got mid cab mounts close enough. Had to move rear cab perches. I had to clearance my firewall a lot for EGR, then deleted but glad that I did the clearance when it came time to change transmissions. Axle had to be moved forward I don't know how many inches. I did a four link which made me raise my bed floor almost to flatbed. I just picked up a 72 521 to put on my 4x4 D21 next
  9. 900# scrap. Like it wasn't even there
