    75 brake issues

    My bad.., mine has no adj. either. (must have been the Land Cruisers) Where you're at now.., sounds like the M/C still has issues. When I do drum brakes.., I put the drums on with the shoes lightly rubbing the drum when turning the drum by hand. That way, you don't have to mess with that adjustment tool. (they will break-in soon anyway) That's the only other thing that would cause what you describe. (way too loose shoes) EXCEPT.., you can get a new/faulty M/C these days. PS When you bled the wheel cyl. did you do right rear, left rear, right front, left front..? (this usually insures no air in the lines.) WHEN are we gonna see some (resto-rig) pics...?????

    BTW., I have 4 wheel drums & my rig stops on a dime & gives 5c change. (no P/B) Ford built these rigs to "STOP" as well as ""GO" ----- don't let anyone tell you different.

    75 brake issues

    Hi cdaye.., A couple questions.. Do you have good experience working on power/non power hydraulic brakes.? BTW., which do you have.? Is the pedal hard when it stops moving or "squishy"..? "pressure differential valve" (porp. valve) is simply a "restrictor" ...., allowing LESS pressure to the rear so in medium/hi braking.., the back wheels won't lock up/skid. These rarely fail. However, they can get plugged with improper fluid maint. You likely have the dual M/C ...? They can be tricky to fully bleed. Also, the brake peal "push-rod" has to be adjusted properly or the M/C won't re-set correctly when pressure is released. Were the "good brakes" present B/4 you did these up-grades.? New shoes yes/no.? ---- "OVER" ----

    Extended Storage

    There is a way to pump up the oil pressure prior to start but it involves R&R'ing the dizzy. OR- You can pump it up a bit by pulling the ctr. dizzy wire..., then crank the eng. a bit. You may see a flicker in the oil pressure gage. Put the wire back on & fire it up. How's the carb..? Someone should watch while cranking so as to be sure it isn' t over flowing due to a stuck float or needle-n-seat. Don't want any "fire"

    Fuel Tank Install

    They made/make these repl. tanks to work with all EB model years. Some yrs. have a fumes catcher behind the dr. side seat, in front of the wheel well. (part of the smog garbage) Rubber lines were used on them. Some carbs (as I recall) have a return to tank requirement. one nipple can be used for that. If you don't need either.., leave them plugged. Also.., I believe you'd need a "vented" gas cap.

    6cyl v8 swap

    Wellll..., maybe you've already discovered this ---- V/8 eng., pwr. steering, & discs require a very deep wallet. For example, V/8 swap requires everything changed from radiator to driveshaft front joint. EXCEPT for the transfer case. For starters, I would recommend a compression/leak-down test on your I-6. Those results will give you info. needed to move on. (you can rent free the tools to do this test.., or have it done) Freshening up the I-6 may be the best investment. Disc brakes usually req. power brakes as more pressure is needed. (this also can be expensive) Freshening up the drums, etc, would be 1/4 the price.., maybe even less. Power steering runs approx. $800 - $1000

    6cyl v8 swap

    Skitter is right..., 302 (& sometimes a 351) is the most common change-out. I would add.., I've had 4 EB's with the V/8 along with my present '66 with the I-6 (one V/8 had the A/T) You see which one I kept..!! Just noticed this new board format wiped out the signatures..? And, the gallery. Hmmmmmm....., I'm going to have to re-think how to answer these questions from now on... I'll have to get back to ya......, Long/short.., keep it the way it is with just a few mods.
  10. The '66 year model (most) has the vin tag on the driver side kick-panel.., just left of the clutch pedal.

    Dana 30 king pin covers

    Hmmmm.., You're ahead of me there..!! I've not done mine as yet as they were solid/in good shape when I bought my rig. I'm assuming you're talking about the square piece after the 4 bolts are out.., not the bolts themselves. How 'bout twisting with a large spanner wrench.? http://www.tomsbroncoparts.com & http://www.Wildhorses4x4.com have the kits (everything you need) including the dampers, etc. You might call them..., they might know a good way to pop them lose..... Do let us know what works....
  12. Hi Christy.., welcome..! The actual cable is a hardened steel wire so to speak. The other end is formed in a corkscrew/pig-tail type of connector. It just slips on the actuator peg. You should be able to put it back in place. "...control knob for the temperature" If you're calling out the "correct" knob., this one runs out to a valve on the pass. side valve cover. These valves have a short life in some cases soooo.., that may be the real problem here. Other cables run to heater box. defroster, trap doors.etc. Let me know what you find.
  13. Then it is likely the sender.., or a dead short in the sender wire.
  14. Well..., that's not a real good way. Normal eng. temps are 180-190 deg. Trying to touch anything under there (eng., radiator, etc) would cause one to yank their hand back reeeeeal quick..., let alone an over heated engine. Harbor Fright has a (+-$20) lazer temp reader that comes in handy all over the house & garage. BTW., is the temp needle pegged or just reading high (i.e. somewhere above normal) ..? A high reading often indicates a falty thermostat.
  15. Hi Tavar., welcome..!! You can try replacing your sending unit on the engine. They can get dirty, leak &/or just plain fail. However, how are you determining that it is, in fact, not overheating..?
