LCDC Posted May 31, 2009 Report Share Posted May 31, 2009 So I decided to go down to work to get the 4 wheel drive tonight. Lugnut was with me. Its bad enough that my carb is starting to crap out but it was either the datrod or the kingcab with no tail lights. I put the battery in and we take off to leave. I start going across the bridge and lugnut gets stuck at the intersection cuz the carb crapped out and needed a bit to build up fuel pressure. I go across the bridge and turn around to go back to see if he needs help and he's then right behind me as i'm turning. So I yell at him and tell him to wait for me at the store. I go back across the bridge, turn around and come back. Now i'm driving my 1980 KC datsun 4x4 with no tail lights, expired plates, not even in my name yet, so i'm running thin on the wire as it is. And lugnut is driving my truck with no insurance since I have a broadform insurance policy. Well I meet lugnut at the store and regroup. A sheriff deputy goes by. We take off to leave, get around the corner to go up the back road then the datrod craps out again. I pull over to wait. He gets going, and then the 4x4 dies. He passes right on by, and I yell at him to wait but he keeps going. well. I wasn't getting any power. so i popped the hood. the previous owner had wired in a kill switch connecting the positive and negative sides of the battery and wired up to the terminals. So i pulled the other wire out of the kill switch, stripped them, twisted them together and got going. Well, by the time i got to the corner, lugnut was coming back and we met at the corner and turned to go up the hill. Amazingly enough, the datrod made it three quarters of the way up the hill before crapping out. So I pull over and wait. He finally gets going and I tell him to get up the hill. I was gonna follow just incase I needed to push the truck up the hill. But I had to take it easy cuz my transfer case isn't bolted in, just kinda hanging. Lugnut gets up the hill in the datrod and pulls over. I went to pull over but he waved me to keep going. So I drove all the way to the field where I keep the collection, and lugnut finally made back there. All along, other then the county mounty, no other law officials in site. Pretty good for driving a rig with no tail lights at dusk and an expired plate.:D Quote Link to comment
