Happy Birthday to me! I'm still here, just busy with my other cars. I'll sort out my truck's exhaust issue soon! Apr 5, 2024

      Yep, I know I've been quiet for a while, I've been pre-occupied with my 1989 Toyota Van but I'll get to my truck someday, she's not out!

      Welp, she's alright for the most part. Need to find some parts to make her somewhat presentable again, but she lives.

      welp, guess some down town driving finally blew out the seal in my clutch master cylinder, more work to do!!!

      I bring great news: She lives again!!! Apparently the fuel level is still high but it runs fine now so...

      This rough idle and deceleration stumbling out of the blue has me properly stumped for the time being now...

      Drove the truck around town to double check any leaks, dry as the desert on the thermo housing & fuel pump!

      Replacing said fuel lines, the pipe on the far left (I have a Type I fuel pump) was cracked and leaking, replacing all 3 for good measure.

      Replaced it with an aftermarket gasket, and also found a leaking fuel line on my fuel pump. Todays the day for repairs i guess!!

        Ooh, that doesn't sound fun at all. Thankfully, I'm just doing a bunch of minor fixes here and there as they pop up. Whack-A-Mole but with parts!

      Inspecting my distributor today, found out the dust seal on it is a piece of rope?! Also its leaking oil too... Ordering a new gasket now...

        Yup! Probably done by the original owner, given how it was pretty oily and looked like it was there doing its job probably for a loooong time!

      Accelerator cable replacement didn't go as planned, but hey at least my old cable still works with some WD-40!

      Changing my accelerator cable, then onto the distributor!
