Do I need to take the tube out, and if so, how do I do that? I can't find anything in either the Haynes or Chilton manual about it. Is it a pressed fit or is there something threaded? If I don't need to remove it, do I just need to bend it somehow so the dipstick slides all the way in??
All I want for Christmas is to finish this project truck. This exhaust is the last major thing left. After this I can put on the 3" exhaust pieces per the how-to article, replace the turn signal cam, bolt on the front sway bar, do a quick front alignment, bleed the rear brakes, and fire it up and drive it around the neighborhood! This is the light at the end of the tunnel for me. I have already replaced the following:
the entire third member
rear brake hose (from frame to axle)
wheel cylinders and drum hardware
passenger front TTB
passenger radius arm & radius arm bracket
all 6 shocks
front coil springs
front brake hoses
passenger front wheel bearing
passenger front ball joints (driver's side is solid)
switched to manual hubs
new 33" tires
Thanks in advance!
p.s. Sorry about my rambling and ranting, I'm exhausted and just want to be done with this
1989 Bronco XLT, 302 V8, automatic, summit shorties (almost!), 33" tires
