    Why Ya Gotta Be So Mean?

    So as if the truck didn't look badass enough I decided on a small mod around the headlights. I made it out of 1/4" steel, nothing new just some stuff I had lying around. I mocked it up first with some cardboard so I could see if I liked the angle. Then cut it out and welded it on. What do ya...

Someone here in one of my first threads, when I was having brake lockup issues, told me to check and re-build all the brake cylinders. It was always on my todo list but never really had the time. Finally after receiving Jatonka's...

    Deuce Fuel Tank Cap Leaking

    I thought I would find an answer on this by searching but didn't find anything. Is it normal for some fuel to leak out around the fuel tank cap while driving? I have seen it on other deuces but it happens on mine every time I take her out. I tried adjusting the gasket and spring in the cap...
