Well, that's one way to wake yourself up in the morning!
Seriously, one thing I enjoy about working on these old trucks is the
grab-what-you-can-to-make-it-work resourcefulness of yesteryear (as opposed
to the take-your-late-model-to-the-dealer to install only one possible piece
which is overpriced and...well, you know.) I get such a thrill out of the
fact that when I need to fix something on my truck I just go down to . . .
the plumbing section of the local hardware store! Can't do that as much
with a late-model.
That said, there are resourceful ideas that are interesting, that give a
smile or a chuckle, and then you head to NAPA for the FRAM.
