Please feel free to share anything on these older trucks as im trying to find out where to start.
So i picked this old hunk of junk from an older gentleman who put it up for sale down the street from my house.
Got it for 550 with a blown engine ( i still dont know whats wrong with it)
1984 4x4 SR5 straight axle! No mods at all
No rust, a few small dents here and there.
ugly silver stripe
get the damn thing running
new drivers fender
new drivers door
herculine inner fender walls and bed
My engine was toast, cylinder 1 and 2 had 120 psi, cyl 3 had 90, and 4 had 0. I had coolant in the oil and it was filthy, figured it was time to retire this old horse.
Picked this 22r down south from a wrecking yard, I was told it had 87k motor is in great condition minus bad carb with lots of compression and no leaks.
Borrowed an Engine hoist and a pressure washer and got some work done.
Found out the old 22r had a piston blown up in cyl 4, maybe that explains the 0 lbs lol.
Before, this was clutered with oil and dirt.
