    converting a non AC truck to AC

    The only 2 other things that have to do with controlling fan speed would be the blower motor resistor and the switch in the control panel

    converting a non AC truck to AC

    Rheostat? Only place I know of where there would be one of those is the headlight switch, the summer portion. Are you wanting a headlight switch?.

    Dash removal 85 d150

    Got my heater box ready for action, dash came out easier than I thought it might, but discovered some body work on the cab that I wasn't thinking about or counting on having to do.

    Ok update in case anyone* might* care (maybe doing the same to their truck?) Got my heater box rebuilt, had to replace the foam on the recirc doors for both boxes (I got 2 good ones from the 3 boxes I had and basically 1 heater box worth of "junk" parts ..) I just put the 2nd one back together...

    2003 4.7 MOTOR

    Yup I played Hell finding a newer dodge truck with less than 4 doors... And that stupidly short bed they all have now. I wound up with an ex Fastenal truck, a '12. It has the first 4.7 in it I have ever owned and only because I can't get a 318 in anything that new.... So far so good, but I have...

    Where's the love?

    I got rid of my 99 because the frame looked iffy by the passenger side front leaf spring hanger area where the 2 sections of frame are riveted together along with spring hanger bracket. Still have the 96, been looking at replacement winter beaters but everything I'm seeing below about $3g is in...

    78 Dodge d150 carburetor adjustment questions

    Opened up the fuel jet? Huh? You mean idle screws? That won't change a thing for starting. When the motor is dead cold next time, take the air cleaner housing off, grab throttle shaft and snap it wide open, let it shut and watch the choke butterfly, see what it does. Does it snap shut?

    78 Dodge d150 carburetor adjustment questions

    Why do you say that? They are barely open at idle. Put a tach on it to measure rpm? Have to work back n forth between mixture adjust and rpm. Get a vacuum gauge and a tach adjust back n forth between mixture screws (little changes at a time) til it's smoothest and highest vacuum you can get...

    Hydraulic clutch master cylinder mount?

    Another question..... Is the clutch pedal the same for a truck with factory hydraulic activation vs a truck with conventional mechanical linkage style activation? Hopefully someone else out there is still reading this thread..... Have to look at the kids truck and see what his clutch fork...

    Manufacturers recommended oil

    Won't matter what they thought back then (Ford that was) 1. Warranty is over, a lot of their recommendations are "CYA" driven 2. Today's oils are not the same as oils from then. Different additives and such than were available then. 3. Fresh rebuild, tolerances may be different from new...
