Don't get too happy about my brakes...... Yes, they stop the truck way better than before, but I still have a low mushy pedal. Anyhow, I got the helper spring changed. It was pretty easy. I did find out that Dodge used 1/2" center bolts instead of the usual 3/8". Have no idea why, but they did. Oh, and I also found out the filler neck is dripping fuel when I fill the tank now........

I fixed the fuel filler. I used an epoxy gas tank repair kit! Now I have an issue with the O ring on the filler tube for the transmission. I installed what was supposed to be the correct one this morning and now I see it is dripping again.....

I think I got my transmission filler tube to quit dripping. Itried numerous O rings, but finally figured out that the place that put the flex plate in somehow bent the bracket that holds the tube. I took a 2x4 and pounded on the top of the tube and pushed it into the hole about another half inch. What a PITA....... What's next?????

I'm back. I have just been busy, the Weather, Cows, Fence repair and just general ranch work has kept me busy. My Dodge is still in need of repairs. just small but necessary things that have to wait till I get the winters hay stored.There is always something to do. I did complete all the maintenance and repairs on my son's Dodge Dakota that has been stored for seventeen years since his death, which is a good thing, 1997 with 43K and looks like new. I hope all is well with everyone, I'll try to post some pictures soon.
