    Finally broke down and bought a suitable air compressor for the shop. I went with the 3.7 HP 220v 60 gallon Kobalt compressor. Ran me $499 from Lowe's. Comes with a 3 year warranty with on-site repair. This IS a rebadged Campbell Hausfeld. The shipping label on the box came directly from them to...

    1989 F150 mild restoration build

    I needed a 4x4 truck for the winter while the ranger's under the knife so I started looking for a full size 80-96 Ford truck. I ended up with an '89 F150. Drivetrain consists of a 5.0, 5 speed, and BW transfer case. I picked it up for $825 out the door. Plans are to fix the body up, do a single...

    Brinker88's slow SAS build.

    Backstory. My '93 was getting pretty beat up and I was getting tired of fixing the TTB suspension every trip I went out. The motor was getting tired and the trans was an A4LD with an electric t-case. I scored a great deal on a '97 2wd for $300. No rust, one small dent in the cab roof, a 4.0L...

    Political Eye Opener.

    This. THIS PEOPLE, IS WHAT I"M TALKING ABOUT. We need to get back to the roots of who we are as people. Who we are as AMERICANS. FYI, this is staged, but it does NOT belittle the message. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=16K6m3Ua2nw&feature=player_embedded

    Pushrod/Rocker woes

    It's time for me to get new pushrods/rockers. Last time I had it apart they had some pretty good play in them. Unfortunately, I can't get aftermarket hardened pushrods. DeltaCams says they're backordered and don't know when they'll be in and TomMoranaMotorsports says they have to order them and...

    Interesting Dana 44 3-link idea

    Saw this build on Pirate4x4. Anyone think he'll have problems with the C-bushings coupled with a joint at both ends of his link? Figured I'd share it.

    Long travel TTB suspension with EB coils

    I'm sure by now most have you have at least glanced at my build thread. I noticed awhile back that there was no information about adapting EB (Early Bronco) coils onto the TTB suspensions. I figured I would pass on my knowledge from my build. I started my build by grabbing a set of stock...

    97 Auto transmission problems.

    My old man has a 97 ranger Rwd w/ a 4.0L OHV. We had the transmission overhauled 5 years ago and I did a filter/fluid change a little over a year ago. My problem is it wont shift into gear properly. It takes some fendangling (if you please) to get it to go into drive or reverse. I've checked...

    Tech Library update?

    I've been working on my radius arms now for quite some time. I've asked numerous people here on the site for information which was promptly given to me, for which I am gracious. The extended arms I'm building are out of 2x2 square tubing, which seem extremely popular but is not illustrated as...
