  1. Thanks didn’t think of that
  2. Will do thanks, going to do it in sections. Then replace soft lines, calipers and wheel cylinders. Definitely want it safe as it’s going to grandson as first vehicle. Doing suspension parts the same way
  3. Got a new master cyl, clutch and slave cylinders. Just trying not to get crap into the new wheel cylinders and calipers when I install
  4. Problem being this is what the master cylinder is full of
  5. I would have thought small ferrets would work better 😆
  6. Any suggestions for cleaning the brake lines before I install the new master cylinder, calipers and rear brake cylinders. Want to clean out the old fluid that’s been sitting in these lines for 15 years. Thought of using air pressure to blow through the lines to clear old fluid by disconnecting at the old master cylinder. but cleaning the lines?
  7. Probably been gone over but figured what the heck. Here’s a parts list of what I used to get bigger disc brakes on my 79 620. started with finding 1994 D21 hardbody spindles, mine were complete with old rotors so I did not need inner/outer bearings. Most parts came from Rock Auto. Rotors Raybestos RS 9920R Calipers, Re-man with brackets and pad clips. Raybestos RS FRC3752 left “. “. Raybestos. RS FRC3751 right Centric semi metallic pads. CE 102.02660 Centric Brake hose frt left CE150.42026 From NAPA. Rear Rotor bearing seal pt# 21045 That being said no part number for the right hose as I ordered one for a 4wd and may not work. I will be selling my old (1979) factory spindles-for anybody looking to move from drums for front disc. Will ship with calipers if some one wants as since they been sitting for 15 years probably only good for core returns Hope this may help someone.
  8. What the H…….. forgot my H lol….. Chemo brain they call it
  9. 3 are the same and matched the headlights on the truck. Trying the different one, the one the grandson likes I had to dig through all the parts that came with the truck to find different headlight mounts. They’re further apart than the others. And thanks for the positive comment, slowly but surly.
  10. Test fitting panels and finding bolt holes with sheared off bolts. Drill on the next warm day we have. Looking pretty good. I have like 4 grills and one is different as the vertical bars are further apart and had to change headlight buckets to make it fit. Any one know what year that would have been?
  11. Like I mentioned Mike was just a crazy thought. I’ve done nothing to hack up this truck. Wondered if it had been done, if it could work, was there any benefit if it had worked for someone. days when my cancer has me down I watch the shows and wonder what could be done to make it unique without butchering it. as alway thanks Mike
  12. Calm down , one i was wondering if it could be done and if it would work. He’s 13 and was asking about bagging it. I’m happy he’s even interested in this old truck to work on it with me. Get his hands dirty and learn more then video games.
  13. I was just wondering if something like this would work. Think you could easily adjust ride height with the coil overs. 4 links would hang down so far on stock frame and 3link would require fuel tank being moved. Didn’t think about axel wrap. Like I said when I can’t work on the truck I think of nutty stuff, might be the 13 meds a day I take for my cancer.😁. Anyhow thanks for the input y’all.
  14. Thank you, I’ve got all new ball joints and look to be the same as what in on the truck spindles now. Just want to be able to get new rotors, seals, and calipers or kits
