    Auto to Manual trans.

    Good advice....I have everything ......You would need the transmission, clutch, flywheel, bell housing, throw out bearing, clutch linkage, peddle, and all that goes with it. The shift lever. ......... Would be much more problematic to swap out to the manual trans. Thank you for your reply and...

    Hood replacement

    Changed out hinge on the right side and it fixed the problem. If I ever have to do this project again, I'll remove the 3 bolts that hold the Hinge spring assembly (after propping up that side), then the 2 bolts into the hood and then attach new hinge top 2 bolts followed by the 3 that attach...

    Auto to Manual trans.

    727 has been leaking fluid and need to deal with it. I have a 4speed from an '84' Dodge pickup with the granny Low. Mine has the 318 and 203 TC. What would be involved to swap the 727 with N435 or 455 ( not sure which it is as I'm typing but it is the granny Low)?

    M880 5.2 smoke coming out of air breather inlet

    Been awhile, in fact it probably needs a rebuilt since I'm having to add fluid fairly often. On another note, I have a PTO gear box for the 203 TC plus drive line for it. Have you ever installed one for your truck?

    Thanks Bob! I'll start doing that. I had checked the fluid before all this happened and noticed the stick saying to check in neutral.

    M880 5.2 smoke coming out of air breather inlet

    Plug is in, truck starting better, but when I put it in Drive or Reverse, it dies. Have to restart and eventually it will do better. Haven't road driven it yet or up steep grades...maybe tomorrow if it doesn't rain, I can further test it. Found the plug that blew out sitting inside the frame...

    M880 5.2 smoke coming out of air breather inlet

    ...The one where the trans. to engine block sits. Reread my post and realized this part didn't make sense. It should have been, where the support bracket from transmission to engine is.

    Thanks Bob...will replace fuel filter and reset relay...I'm not clear on the fuel line at the fuel bowl...is that where the supply line goes into the Carb, where sometimes there is a filter? Not sure if I have one there.

    M880 5.2 smoke coming out of air breather inlet

    Having trouble starting and after a start, will run and then die. After several rotations of this, smoke will eventually build up in air breather. I would guess, gasoline not burning efficiently in combustion chamber and/or carburetor and timing issues. Anyone had this happen? Thanks

    Master Cylinder Push Rod Adjustment

    NDT, just watched a YT Video that showed how to make the adjustment. I should be able to do the adjustment (if it does protrude too far into the MC.) Thanks!

    Master Cylinder Push Rod Adjustment

    Installing a new Brake Power Booster, tag says, "Master Cylinder Push Rod Adjustment must be checked for proper clearance." How is this done? Thanks!
