  1. i'm an hour north of Seattle. what parts are you looking for?
  2. That was it. thank you. Now that you told me that i should have known because i think i have had this problem in the past and someone on here told me the same solution. thanks again.
  3. yesterday my turn signals/blinkers stopped working. all 4 of them worked perfectly before. haven't done anything to the truck recently that would have caused this...that i know of. The turn signal lights inside the cab on the gauge cluster stopped working as well. is this a bad switch in the steering column or a relay or something? any advice would be great. thank you. -Jon
  4. have you looked at all the junk yards/ pick and pull places around your extended area yet?
  5. ill see if i can help. what are you looking for?
  6. i have similar issues where my body mounts to the frame and i got some 16 gauge steel remnants from work. still havent started the repair. hopefully when the weather gets better this spring/summer ill have time. i have the carpet pulled out and a new one to replace it, but for now when its raining the tires sling water up through the small holes in the floor and get my pants wet.
  7. i live in mount vernon and i may know where there are some parts trucks if you are in need.
  8. that fixed it. Shes back on the road and chargin at 13 or 14 volts.
  9. i am having an over charging issue. gauge is reading 18 volts. i have heard that this can be a result of bad ground connections. i am also thinking i should get my alternator tested to see if the voltage regulator is bad. i also checked my voltage at the battery and it is over charging so it isn't a bad gauge. has anyone experienced this issue?
  10. i just replaced the valve seals and a mechanic said that the guides were tight enough when he machined my valves and seats. it is what it is at this point then unless i replace my valve guides or replace the head right? There is a chance that i didn't seat one of my seals all the way? would this only be happening on exhaust valves? or both exhaust and intake?
  11. I will reset the valve lash as per mikes previous instructions. Thank you for your advice NC.
  12. ok. first of all, thank you mike for the help and advice. secondly, a couple more issues. took the truck up in the mountains and it did great on the way up. On the way down trying to regulate my speed with compression so i didn't overheat my breaks my truck started to smoke a lot. smoke from burning oil. is this oil being sucked past the rings into the cylinder? additionally 15 miles from home my voltage light came on and the gauge was reading 18 V. my thought is that either my sensor is bad or my voltage regulator is bad. i will check voltage at the battery terminals with a multi meter when engine running and see if the gauge and the multi meter match. if matches it is the regulator. if they do not match it is the sensorhas anyone else experienced this issue?
  13. you are going to have to include some more info to help us understand what you have and what you want. what do you want to do with your truck? street? mud? 18" sounds large in combination with a 2" drop. why do you only want steel wheels? post a picture of your truck. if your truck in not "level" then how is dropping it "2" all around" going to level it out?
  14. got it running. fired right up after cranking for half a second. runs smooth (correct timing). need to adjust the idle and throttle cable a little bit, but that is easy enough. it smoked pretty good after it warmed up, but i expected that after all the spilled oil and coolant from disassembly. i only replaced intake exhaust head and valve gaskets. new valve oil seals, and new spark plugs. the smoke out of the exhaust pipe stopped eventually, but would smoke heavily when i went to drive it.( under strain) i have only driven it around the block. there is a noticeable ticking coming from the motor. i adjust the valve lash to 0.012" COLD when assembling and i know i need to adjust it to 0.012" when it is warm and i will do so this weekend. questions: what could this ticking be? valve against rocker arm? it couldn't be valve against piston right? is this smoke/steam coming out of the exhaust normal? could water be getting sucked in past the intake gasket? what is the torque on the intake bolts. i couldn't find it in the owners shop manual. i will try to post a video of it running so you can hear the ticking sound.
