    Time to fix an issue. If you turn the flow off to the heater, the truck will overheat. The fix is a bypass that opens when the heater valve is closed

    the lines

    installed.... probably should have got the 5/8" line but this worked with a bit of heat

    I was so afraid I'd have to get rid of Luigi if he didn't match my '40.... thankfully, it's a perfect match

    other then leaky, there's nothing wrong with it

    so glue it and put it back together.


    my plan is still the NV4500, but I have several things that need to be done now and this is drivable and useable. I do need to figure out where I put (for safety) the tuning computer... but outside of that.... time to use it again.

    back to this
    I have no idea what's leaking..... dried it off, hopefully it'll start dripping again tonight


    not from the usual seals


    I wonder if this was my squeak...



    hopefully I can get this apart enough to order parts and get this done... to recap, I'm putting an NV4500 in

    Not sure if this in gene pool, socioeconomic, geographical or ????? related

    Why does it seem to be a requirement for the driver to hang his left leg and foot outside the body while driving down the street?

    link wrenches have arrived


    for those who don't know, the action of flexing tightens some of the jam nuts on the control arms... getting them back apart can be a challenge....

    For posterity

    20 1/2" which is not what's published elsewhere

    this is the dimension that worried me


    anyway, no decision on the direction... I have Optima to do
