Wrenching Day

OK CPA, seems quite a few of us need to get some wrenching done on our trucks. So let's see what we can do. Just reply in this thread, tell us what you need to have done, and if you don't have your location filled out in your User CP, tell us where you live. After we get everyone who is interested we can move forward and pick a location and day. If you just want to come and hang out that is cool as well.

I need a brake fluid flush and a trans flush. I also have a oil crossover line that has been sitting on my bench for 2 years now. May go ahead and put it on as well.

I know what you want Chuck, you want Snappy lunch, lol!!! I got Jeff hooked on Snappy. I doin't dare to eat one with my gut the way it is now. It wasn't easy to sit across the table from Jeff and watch him eat two of them.
Adam, You can get Fleetrite EC-1 coolant at any International dealer. Make sure you get the concentrate and not the 50/50. If we end up doing the wrenching Day I can either bring it with me, or if we do it up here you can get when you get here. I have no idea what " restore" is . Sounds like snake oil?
Looks like we will have plenty to do, lets leave this active through the weekend so everyone has a chance of seeing it.
Later.....................

OBS trucks have drum brakes on the rear. There are kits available to retrofit with disc brakes.

I could use a brake fluid flush, radiator flush, replace tranny cooler hoses and the bypass line on the transmission. Probably add some interior neons. Oh yeah, new e-brake shoes.
