    Can Spell Comanche
  1. So lucky for me it was the oil pressure gauge line. The PO decided to route it through the exhaust manifold. Of course it melted. So after an hour of waiting in the car park for my friend to give me a ride. I was up and running again. Sent from my SM-N915V using Tapatalk
  2. Well, I'm not sure yet what happened. My engine decided to throw up all its oil into the bay and onto the ground. Now I'm stranded at the gas station and it's starting to rain.
  3. Well the weld I put on the hinge broke off. So I'm at it again. Can't I just leave it like this... lol while I have it off I should seriously consider the "removable door" mod.
  4. No worries on the delete pully. I found a video about converting it into an air compressor. Also I got the passenger floor buttoned up today. Been sick, so I havn't been keeping up. I'll take some fully finished pics tomorrow. I welded in the patches and then sealed them with silicone adhesive. Still havn't heard anything about which oil pan gasket I need... any ideas?
  5. Sorry i havn't posted in a while. I've been working on other things. I did start on the floor panels. Here's the driver side. Didn't look too bad. I sanded and grinded away all the surface rust. Repainted useing ruberized undercoating. I also cut away all the carpet foam. I think it's sole purpose was to hold water against the metal. Then I moved on to the passenger side. Which was a little worse. Only one hole. In the front left corner. Doesn't look like it's going to be fun to patch. I have this side about half cleaned up. The sanding wheel I was useing on my drill broke and I havn't bothered to fix it yet. I'll try to post an update when I finally finish. After replacing the transmission filter and fluid I have a leak. So I'll have to remove the pan and try to figure out what happened.
  6. Finally got the bolt out. Had to pull the ac compressor. Is there a delete pulley for that or can I just get a smaller belt? It looks like someone broke a bolt on the other side and tried to repair it. I ended up having to widen both holes and re-tap them. It turned out well in the end. I finally painted the intake. I'll have to grab some pics tomorrow.
  7. Does anyone know what oil pan gasket goes on my truck? It has 14 bolts and lifts in the front and back. I've looked everywhere but can only find 16 bolt and 12 bolt gaskets. A link to one would be greatly appreciated. TIA! :) Sent from my SM-N915V using Tapatalk
  8. Build Date: illegible Axle/trans: front is Dana 30 with cad. Not sure about the rear or transmission. It's a 3 speed auto though Engine: 2.8l V6 Status: running and being worked on Current Owner: me, Daniel Hall Location: Jacksonville, TX Notes: I have no real history of this vehicle. The previous owner was a young man with no real automotive experience. Maroon interior. Looks to be all stock.
  9. I don't have a complete picture of the front end before I started. but, here it is in pieces. And as she sits now... I have: Rebuilt the steering box Replaced the center link Replaced the bushing on the sway bar Swapped the front differential fluid Removed the vacuum from the cad and built in an always locked system did a redneck front alignment until I can do it properly Cleaned what I could and greased all joints
  10. So here's a side by side of the engine bay so far And where she stands now. Still have more to do In the bay, I have: Removed the ac compressor and lines Removed the charcoal box to make room for a second battery. Removed all unnecessary vacuum cans and hoses. Replaced and rewired the alternator, battery pos and neg lines Painted the bay, radiator, behind front grill, brake booster, master cylinder, and a couple of odds and ends.
  11. Will do. I still have the front end lifted so it'll be a while before I get back there. I'll post a few pictures in a minute of the work I've done so far. Sent from my SM-N915V using Tapatalk
  12. Very nice! Also inspiring. I will definitely be following this build. Sent from my SM-N915V using Tapatalk
  13. The springs I have now seem to give a lot more than I would expect. However, I don't really have experience with this trucks ride characteristics. I'd be happy not having to replace them. If I could get away with cleaning them up and painting that would be awesome. Sent from my SM-N915V using Tapatalk
  14. Don't mind the siding. I have her parked in a weird spot so I could lift the front up. Is this some kind of helper spring? It's only on one side.
