  1. Sway bar bushing - 2 options listed

    Early Tacoma Tech
    Easy fix...take sway bar off...throw away. :) It gives a feeling of freedom as you swerve down the highway.

    So...with risk of sounding like an idiot here, but what the heck is a digital nomadic entrepreneur?

    Howdy folks, So, it's been years since I've been on here. I used to frequent here often. It's been so long that I had to re-sign in under a new name. Well sort of...I just added a "2" to the end of my username. I had forgotten my password and tried to go through the "set up new password"...

    Well we've been hard at it lately. Been spending time on a little assembly. Sounds easy right? Think again. Lots and lots of loosening, tightening, adjusting and re-adjusting bolts to make things fit. This old truck has been a bit of a bear to get right. But at any rate...here is how she sits...

    Couple more little things to share. On the side of the valve cover of these old trucks they displayed the name of the engine..for example Thriftmaster and Blueflame. Now there are two different types of Thriftmasters. The 235 and the 216. Ours happens to be the 216 and each had their own logo...

    Nothing special here...just wanted to share a few more photos. My dad re-torquing head bolts down after engine was warm. Gotta make sure everything is buttoned down. This should not be over-looked for those of you who are new to engine rebuilds like me. You'd be surprised how things can loosen...

    Now that we got it running and addressed a few leaks (vacuum, oil and water) we can now get to adjusting the valves and really make it purr. Below you'll see a couple cool vids. This one you'll see pap in there with feeler gauges. We adjusted accordingly. Did this while it was running...not...

    It is a lot of work...depending on the shape of the truck. We decided to restore everything and make ours show quality. If you just want to get it back on the road it would not be nearly as involved. But I would highly recommend it. It's very rewarding. Plus it's another excuse to hang out in...

    Great. Appreciate it. We've been tinkering a lot with the little things lately. My Dad wired the cab with the exception of the front and rear lights and the gas tank. He also installed the gauges and speedo cable, oil pressure, temp and all the other little connections behind the gauges. Pap and...

    Well, it seems as though I lost some of your interest. Anyone still following along?

    Thanks man. Spraying the base coat (blue) is a walk in the park compared to the clear. That clear is kinda tricky to get it slick out nice and flat without getting runs. It's a fine line...too little and you have dry spray, too heavy and you get runs. There's a sweet spot in there. And then you...

    I hope I haven't lost anybody's interest but I have some good stuff to post up tonight. So in the previous post I showed some interior pics of paint...well, now it's time to show some exterior paint pics. This was a long time coming in our minds and boy was I nervous. Nervous because I'm the one...

    These past few days have been pretty monumental...well, at least we think so. We sprayed the interior color this past week. It's nice seeing something other than grey. The color you see is called champagne. It's more like a light bronze color but it is original. I like it. Below are some...

    Howdy followers! The main reason why I have not been posting frequently is not because we haven't been working on it. It's mainly due to the fact that these last couple months have just been repetition and don;t wanna bore you guys. You've seen many pictures of us sanding and painting primer...

    Ok folks, FINALLY.....I'm back. I only have a few pics and they might be a little boring but we did get some work done this past week or two and pics were taken. so here they are...enjoy. Took the cab out in the yard and tilted it back so we could spray some undercoating. A couple days later...

    I know I know, sorry...it's been a while since we worked on it. The holidays and hunting season took up much of our time. But no worries, it's back to it pretty soon. I'll get back in the documenting mode again and we'll have some more pics and updates soon enough.

    So a while back we had to cut off the inside bottom of both doors due to rust and rot. We decided not to repair it until they came back from the blaster. That way all the left over blast media could easily be blown out when they came back. Finally got around to repairing them. Below is the...

    Thanks guys. I hope to keep you guys updated throughout the year. The next few rounds of pics may all tend to look similar since I'll be working on the body for a long time and there are many steps in this process, but I like body work so I probably still post em up anyhow. Here's our plan of...
