Question type: Maintenance & Repair

V6 engine 2 wheel drive (?) OLD truck   Already had replaced radiator, upper oil seals (?) need to do the lower ones sometime  the brake line broke this morning so that's coming up really soon.  Need the seat out to fix the hole in the  driver's side floor, 185,000 miles runs great when it runs.  Do you see a pattern emerging?  I will have tons of questions coming.  This is my FIRST truck and I love it.  Old and cranky just like me.

Hey, nice mismatched door, you must be from Clearlake, CA. the poorest place to live in California...we can't afford Pavement or a haunted hell-box of a place to live but I'm here is very easy think that there's a "paw-pad"...four of them each one has two bolts~ you probably will want to buy a 9/16? swivel ...might be 5/8...get them ended wrenches in 1/2 and 9/16....anyways it's NO big deal, except the darned seatbelt gooser stickin' up the middle~ you will need two guys for this's tough to do alone...well the wife was there to dial 911~

as far as the floor "boards" take everything that will catch fire out of the immediate vicinity, in fact get a plate that you can use as a blocker...there probably is a pre-formed floor pans just weld it in----give me a little time to come up with this...need another pot of coffee anyways~


911 ?? really?? ick Guess I will get my son to help. as for the floorboard I have a piece of diamond plate and LOTS of J&B Weld. THAT will fix anything.I figure while Horse is not going anywhere I might as well fix something on it. BTW I am in Dayton OH and I probably shouldn't have bought Horse but I wanted a truck for hauling. You know, tree limbs over grown lilac bushes etc My son's peeved now he has to come over to help... :)
