  1. Hello, little update/ hoping someone can point me in the right direction. I tried yet again to free my front pipe from the manifold with a huge breaker bar. All I managed to do was sheer off one bolt. I’m still needing to do the shop vac test. A question I have is what are some good options if I end up replacing the manifold with a header. I would like to keep the emissions system intact (I think I do anyways) so I’m looking for a manifold that will accommodate the egr tube and the other two tubes. Please drop that knowledge :) I learned to weld so I could do my own exhaust a while back. It’s ugly but it freaking works and saved me a few hundred bucks. I reused all my old pipe and it fits a little funny now. Thinking I could pull it all out and weld in some new pipe and install the header. Just lack experience here and am wary to order anything with out knowing it will work. Sorry for any stupidity. And thanks so much for the help.
  2. Oh man, let me know if you grab that. I was going to try and get the cash together and swoop it. I would grab the brush guard and some other stuff for sure!

    Lack of tach.

    Sprayed down the whole carb big time with cleaner. Lots of gunk came off and right away she was idling at 700. It’s been about a week and I notice the idle is creeping back up to the 1k mark. Still purring nice though.
  4. Very helpful. The shocks I was looking at said they would lift my rig 1-2” but now I understand what I’m really after is something to help under load. The last load of wood I got had me bouncing big time. Not very fun. Don’t like to strain my old girl. Would I just need bags on the back or would they be needed up front too?
  5. I have an 84 720. She is my daily driver and work truck. I make trips with heavy loads of fire wood, soil and gravel. My rig is all stock and I run 15” tires. Hoping I can get a small lift from the right shocks. Any feedback is greatly appreciated!

    Ok right on. I’m doing a carb inspection today. Cleaned it a week ago and man it sure liked that.
  7. I have an extra oil pressure and battery gauge if you need em.

    She was up to temp. I don’t have AC. I will check my choke. I’m sure some of my vacuum lines are cracked. Been trying to replace them all. Could this be a factor? Thanks for the help.

    Hooked up the tach dwell meter to coil. Says I’m idling right around 1k. Sticker on my hood says 800 is money. When turning my idle adjustment screw it didn’t want to come down any lower.

    What is this?

    Been reading and looking quite a lot but can not find what this part is or a part number for it. It had a little red cap that fell off. It doesn’t seem to make any difference if it’s hooked up or not. Just can’t stand not knowing. Thanks!
