    Saturday, pulled all 4 rear duals, packed bearings and checked brakes. Found all 4 inner wheel seals damaged. Who ever put this thing back together kinda hard on seals.
    this week so far, have removed and sandblasted stone guard, and cut front lip off hood. The only rusted through spot on the truck. Where I cut is marked in white in pic. Going to bend a new piece and replace in next couple days.

    I have changed my engine oil which by the way is a real pain in the ars if theist person tilted the oil filter housing so that the drain is right over top of the oil cooler hoses which then sends oil everywhere or you have to empty it with a poweraid bottle took three of those, installing the new wasn't bad made sure I turned the drain just enough to miss the hoses for the future, drained and flushed my cooling system as well as I could couldn't figure out what plug on the block so it just had the radiator drained which holds the majority of fluid anyway filled that back up with Zerex for cumm with the additive already in it 13 bucks a gallon at the parts store, gonna. Heck the brake fluid level and the rear end levels then hopefully head up Rausche creek after work today

    I got a spin-on oil filter adapter kit for my truck and it is a lot less messy to deal with when changing out. I highly recommend one.

    Did you use the Zerex HD concentrate or the pre-charged? I used the concentrate and diluted 50/50 with distilled water. Its good stuff.

    Spin on sounds like a good idea I used the Zerex then mixed it with just regular water

    I got started on a rear axle seal replacement and bearing pack. Actually the process is just as easy as any other vehicle I have done. Things are just a little heavier! I am going to price out the correct hub nut sockets, and if they are too expensive, I am going to make my own on my plasma table....

    Yep, they are the cat's meow when you need to make some odd ball tools or gadgets!

    I have a plasma cutter, but the Plasma Cams are awesome. My son used one in Vo-Tech to make all kinds of stuff and was really neat. He even cut out gears/sprockets, really cool.
